    Slaine, Zenith or Nemesis the Warlock would push my buttons.

    Totally agree with Aquaman. We need an Aquaman movie, especially if we want a Justice League movie, he was one of the founders. Also, Aquaman has a really cool back-story. It would be a great origin movie.

    And none of these would hold a candle to JTHM if done right.
