@captainmarvel4ever: I think many peoples issues with Lobdell ( Mine included ) is he just will not admit he makes mistakes and he seems so condescending and smug in interview towards the fans. If your an Allen Moore level writer I will look past those things but when you have not written anything worth while in the past 20 years tone it down. I mean Lobdell has ideas but he does not flesh them out and he simply has no clue who to write a teen aged hero.
I love Johns writing and I am very hard on him because I have been a fan of his work for many years now and I know how great he can be. The Metal Men issue as well as Throne of Atlantis storyline where the best stuff he has written with Justice League. All and all for Johns his new 52 JL run has been hit or miss with me. I'm on the opposite side of the fence with you when it comes to Forever Evil I truly think that it is the worst event Johns has ever written. The premise that " Evil is relative" has zero impact in the new 52 universe because since it started it has been a darker universe with most characters morality shown in shades of grey. For this story line to have a lasting effect it the universe it takes place in should not be as cynical as the new 52 is.
I do have high hopes for his Superman he did state it is a restart for Superman in the new 52. Something I was excited to hear.
