I'll play! But I'm going to alter the rules a little bit. Instead of "best," "worst," and "most potential," I'm going to do "favorite," "least favorite," and "most potential" because those terms are a little more generous.

Writers-

Favorite: Grant Morrison (no surprise there)

Least Favorite: John Byrne, I'm sorry, I just don't like what the man did to the mythology.

Most Potential: Karl Kesel, I always thought that he had more to offer Superman than he was necessarily allowed to do because of continuity and working with four other Superman writers. I would love to see what he came up with free of those restraints.

Artists-

Favorite: Curt Swan/ Frank Quitely, don't make me choose between the two

Least Favorite: Kurt Schaffenberger in the 80's. Don't get me wrong, I love his work in the 60's and 70's but by the 80's something was really off. I don't know if it was because of new coloring techniques or age but his work became stiff. He's still a classic, though.

Most Potential: Kenneth Rocafort. His work is gorgeous and I can't wait to see it applied to Superman.

I disagree with Tim Sale being the worst artist. As for best writer I would have to say Mark Waid or John Byrne. LOVE their work on the character. Best artist would have to be Gary Frank.
