So, if you could have any writer, living or dead writing any comic you choose, who would the writer and character be and why?

For my money, Samuel Beckett doing a Hulk/Thing story.

I would give my neighbours first born for that one.

Stan Lee writing anything Avengers or X-men related

@feebadger: Gimme Dennis O'Neil on Batman. Not even close.

Did You read Stan Lee's X-Men? Great concepts, but the writing......

I would give your neighbours' first born for that too O_O

But failing that - I do wonder:

Richard Laymon - Crossed

Terry Pratchett - The Dreaming

Chuck Palahniuk - The Crow

I'd love to see Grant Morrison tackle the Illuminati, particularly characters like Reed Richards and Doctor Strange. More so, however, I'd want to see Morrison writing the Superman Squadron from All Star Superman #6 and Superman #708.

Geoff Johns writing Hawkman in Brightest Day whetted my appetite for an ongoing series by him featuring the character. Better yet, let's have him write The Others from the Aquaman arc of the same title as it's own series.

Most of all, I'd want to see myself writing Superman, but I expect we'd all chose ourselves if we could.

@Onemoreposter: Those were some good Batman's. I'm surprised that since Neil Adams has returned to comics they haven't given them a mini or something, just for old times sake.

@BumpyBoo: All brilliant ideas (though i'm especially taken with Pratchett on The Dreaming, though i would also love to see him do a completely bonkers take on something like The Micronauts too. That would be brilliant fun)

@RideASpaceCowboy: Would definitely be interesting to see Morrison's take on the Illuminati, though i think i would prefer Warren Ellis' version as he seems to have an even better handle on those kind of conspiracy, shdow organisation teams and storylines. But yes, i think we all might choose ourselves, arrogant buggers that we are :)

@Jorgevy: Any and all (though i think i primarily mean writers outside of comics)

@Eternal19: I'm pretty sure you'll get your wish one of these days.

Camoes

Homer (or whoever wrote using his name)

Virgil

just because their epics are awesome

and Umberto Eco writing a medieval Batman comic!!!!

also Aldous Huxley writing anything sci fi

Ah, hey, I'm not trying to hate. I get that alot of people dig Stan. I was never huge on him though. Don't get me wrong, there's some classic ASM's and Incredible Hulk's I love, but out of all Stan Lee's work his early X-Men is some of my least favorite.

You don't know that Johns already had a Hawkman run?
