In this site, we have an entire board dedicated to how related and unrelated characters would fare if they fought one another. Typically, it is expected of us to back up any claims we have on a character's abilities with the appropriate scans to justify our claims.

But, all these 'scans' come from comic books, and all what's happening (or mostly, anyways) is usually written in by...the writers.

So my question to YOU (yes, you. Don't you freaking ignore me) is this:

Which writer(s) write the best feats in comics? Which ones are prone to give great showings for characters? Which ones aren't? (yes, more than one question, but they're all inter-related. Sue me)

Geoff Johns, by actually making Aquaman an awesome character, is the best feat in comics EVER, And Ann Nocenti is awful. Have you read her Green Arrow stories in the New 52? They are terrible.

You haven't been reading comics for very long, apparently.

Morrison created batgod, marv wolfman not only made the titans relevant, but made them arguably the most popular dc book during his run in the 80s. I don't recall the most notable silver age superman writer but I guess whomever that is would be the winner here.

The one who gives weak feats is hard cause there's a lot, jeph Loeb often lowballs villains, that's all I can think of at the moment

Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, and possibly Neil Gaiman (for the Sandman).

But Stan Lee / Jack Kirby definitely takes this. Go read the original Dr. Strange series.

@jedixman: Was Stan Lee's Dr Strange really that good? I always though it would be kinda corny and whatnot considering most comics were back then.

And agreed about The Sandman. One of my favorite books of all time.

The OP against about powerful feats, as in combat feats. Classic Dr. Strange was fighting galactic / universal / multiversal enemies on a daily basis in that series.

Now, as far as quality, yeah, most of Stan Lee's stuff is pretty dated, Jack Kirby's stuff varies, but I never found the art dated.
