Hrrm. I'm not sure I have a FAVORITE retcon, per se - I'm not really in favor of them; I'm more of the 'take the original and go in new directions with it' school - but I'd say one very good one was changing Mr. Freeze's origin to the B:TAS version. Before then, he'd just been a thug in an ice suit, who had been ignominiously dispatched by the Joker a few months before - afterwards, he got brought back in a hurry, because whoa, he was COOL now! (Eh, pun not intended - I guess.) I'm always in favor of changes that allow previously kinda lame characters to strut their stuff.
Another one I'm grateful for is the one that retconned the 'living minds in robot bodies' era of the Metal Men away as a bad dream - 'cause seriously, that would have sucked if it had remained the case.
