I know this makes me a fandom Old
but I really very intensely dislike the abandonment of standardised / notation
for stupid smushnames.

I imagine it was necessary for to search on imperfect platforms, or something
but it means you have to know what it means to know what it means, and know what you're looking for before you can look for it.

also, smaller but annoying, the tendency of said names to use the superhero or supervillain codenames of a character.
I mean, there's several of the Flash, or Batman, and a bazillion Robins
so how the heck are you meant to distinguish to search by person rather than role?
