    Definitely Grant. Justice League as a modern pantheon.

    Dan Vado and Gerard Jones didn't make the list, so I went with Giffen & DeMatteis...

    I wanted to vote for Giffen & DeMatteis... or Gerry Conway...
    But Gardner Fox gets my vote.

    Giffen & DeMatteis got my vote, with respect to Morrison, Waid, and Kelly's runs.

    I thought that when I read them as they came out.

    Then when I reread the whole run years later, I found that Crisis Times Five still wasn't very good, but then World War III was one of the best arcs in the series.

    If he was listed, I might've voted for Tom Taylor. Anyone else feel the same?

    I read stories from most of the writers on the list. Out of them, for the Justice League Title, I have to give it to Grant Morrison.

    - He wrote the Justice League almost like the Greek Pantheon. Each member was special. You felt this presence about them
    - Each member got a turn in the spot light without down-playing another member
    - Although Hal is my favorite GL, you mostly saw the view through Kyle's Eyes who was a rookie at the time, making this series new-user friendly
    - The stories were great to read.

    Grant Morrison best balanced story, characterization, classic feel, great moments, made every member special, accuracy, etc.
    Thank you America for voting for change.

    Don't get me wrong, I think Grant Morrison is a great writer, but I never expected him to become a massively popular comic book writer because his stories are such hard work. Really, I don't think I've ever read a Morrison story that I've fully understood. Even re-reading his stories, it's hard to get a grip on exactly what they are about. So I was quite surprised when JLA became such a hit. I thought he would attract a lot of complaints from comic book fans who want something more straight forward.

    But maybe it's just that I'm not that smart and most comic book readers are much more perceptive than me. That could well be the case. I never did have a high I.Q.

    It's a tough ask choosing just one, but I went with Grant Morrison.
    Only for the fact that the Justice League was at such an all time low when he took over the book.
    It was such a HUGE breath of fresh air at the time that it really did make a huge splash when it was released.
    That, and he wrote some great stories too!

    Grant Morrison & Howard Porter's JLA run remains my favourite comics run of all time. So... Morrison.

    the correct answer to this is: love Injustice but it's an elseworlds hero vs hero story, so no, he's not the best. but he deserves a try at Justice League proper.
