There are definitely some people out there who think that (And have written.) he is the best Batman writer, and I just don't get it. Morrison did some good stories, but compared to his body of work on the whole, his Batman is some of his weakest. And in my opinion, he brought in or back Silver Age stuff that was best left forgotten. I wouldn't say that his run was great. I think that he did a better job writing Dick as Batman than he did Bruce. But I'm really struggling to see how Morrison defined the character, or how he trumps Miller, O'Neill, etc for the best writer EVER! If anyone thinks that he is or isn't, can you please elaborate as to why? Thank You.

He culled the last of the "MAN" from Batman, which I was not fond of.

I can name a lot of writers I think are better, O'Neil of course, but also, Moench, Dixon, almost every writer of the first 100 issues of Legends of the Dark Knight(except for Morrison, I thought his was lame), Wein, Dini, Grant.

Oh yeah, and Englehart. How could I forget Englehart.

What they all have in common is they wrote Batman as a person. Morrison has not been shy that he thinks that the main characters of DC should be just archetypes.

That is not my speed. I think it is a weird tun for who is often called "the most human superhero."

I actually thought all the Batman stories around his run were better. Robinson, Dini, even Winnick...all great. Morrison, not a big fan.. except Club of heroes and 666. Sort of.
