It's not the actual story that I don't like--it's the format. I enjoy creating worlds in my mind and visualizing characters, and graphic novels take that away from me. In reading, half the fun is using my imagination. Having a graphic element removes the imaginative aspect for me.

Part of what I enjoy so much about reading is the fact that everyone interprets the author's world differently.

So it's not so much that you'd "rather not read a superhero graphic novel" it's that you'd rather not read a "graphic novel."
