I think Joe Q is more an idea man than a writer but he is in charge of marvel much like Stan 'The Man' Lee was back in the day, so who has the most mojo?

Also

Bendis vs Morrison

Avengers writers: Bendis vs Roger Stern

Mark Millar vs Geoff Johns

Alan Moore vs Neil Gaiman

Greg Pak vs Peter David

Mike Oeming vs JMS

Jack "King" Kirby vs Kurt Busiek

Jim Shooter's Secret Wars vs Brian Bendis Secret Invasion


Bendis vs Morrison

I definitely prefer Morrison. Every time I pick up something by him it blows my mind (and I can save the LSD for another day - economical!) His X-Men revamp brought me back to the franchise, (too bad it all went back to boring form), I tend to re-read my run of The Invisibles at least once a year, and his current Batman and Robin is the most interesting Batman has been in years.

Avengers writers: Bendis vs Roger Stern

I'll go with Bendis on this one. Stern was a little too status quo for me. I was interested in the way Bendis shook up the concept.

Mark Millar vs Geoff Johns

Geoff Johns. He has a greater respect for continuity.

Alan Moore vs Neil Gaiman

Don't make me choose! Ok, I'll say Moore by a slim margin. I buy nearly everything he writes, but have not done the same with Gaiman.

Greg Pak vs Peter David

Peter David. Everything that happened in Hulk on Pak's watch makes me cry a little inside. Also, David is way more funny and clever. Naked Rick Jones covering little Ricky with an issue of Giant-Size Man-Thing = hilarity.

Mike Oeming vs JMS

Another tough one. I'll go with JMS not just because I'm an old Masters of the Universe fan, but his ability to make emotionally sweeping arcs work so well, (plus his cosmic sensibilities) give him my vote.

Jack "King" Kirby vs Kurt Busiek

So unfair! I'm going to say Kurt Busiek because I think he deserves a great amount of respect for showing so much of his own respect to the franchises he works on. Busiek's love of continuity, and his love for what he writes is apparent. Jack was on the ground floor with many great concepts and an ability for storytelling that MOST ARTISTS LACK TODAY, but he never got the opportunity to shine as much.

Jim Shooter's Secret Wars vs Brian Bendis Secret Invasion

It is so interesting that you put these two events together specifically. For me, Secret Wars is the shark jump at Marvel that defines my collecting habits (all stories occurring before Secret Wars in continuity). Though I do lump it with SWII. While Secret Invasion was the event that made me COME TO THAT DECISION.
