    I'm not happy with it either, given that he seemed completely ignorant of big chunks of Hank Henshaw's character and history during the recent arc on "Green Lantern", but haven't read enough of Johns' solo work to draw a full conclusion.

    Well, in some cases hes alright with continuity, but in others hes just terrible. he uses what he likes, and crops the rest. and everyone automatically assumes that he was responsible for hawkman returns arc, people seem to forget that david goyer was also writting JSA with him at the time. His flash was decent, his Green Lantern is mediocre at best.

    Hmm...not sure I have one. I'm more into the writing aspect.

    Favorite 3 Current Writers.
    Joe Kelly
    Mike Carey (UF4 "Think Tank" ruled!)

    Clor
    Maria Hill (Whatever side you fall on, admit it, she's a bitch.)
    Green Goblin (I love the way Jenkins writes him)

    Favorite All-Time Villian.
    Venom (When David Michilne was writing him and before Millar/Jenkins totally ruined him.)

    Favorite Comic-Based Movie
    Fantastic Four

    Favorite Comic-Based Cartoon

    As for the subject of Johns' writing, he's been hit or miss with me. He's had a couple stories that totally rocked my socks (GL Rebirth, Red Hood vs Robin), but everything else has been "meh." I only read Teen Titans because my roommate gets it, though I have to admit, the current team certainly is interesting.

    Favorite 3 Current Comic Book Title.
    Young Avengers
    Hulk
    Thunderbolts
    Favorite All-Time Comic Book
    Uncanny X-Men
    Favorite All-Time Arc.
    The Claremont/Paul Smith X-Men run from 165-175 most of which is in From the Ashes. Beautiful art, good story.
    Favorite 3 Current Artists.
    John Romita Jr is the only current artist I can get wildly excited about though the guy on Young Avengers is very good but I can't remember his name !
    Favorite All-Time Artist.
    John Byrne: His Avengers, Iron Fist, X-Men, FF & Alpha Flight are all top notch. I know If I read a 70s/80s Byrne drawn comic book I'm going to enjoy it even if the writing is lousy.
    Favorite 3 Current Writers.
    Millar - for Wolverine: Enemy of the State
    Kuppenberg for Young Avengers
    Pak for Planet Hulk
    Favorite All-Time Writer.
    Claremont for his original Uncanny X-Men & New Mutants runs. Anything after X-Men #4 - forget it.
    Favorite 3 Current Teams.
    Young Avengers
    Thunderbolts
    X-Men
    Favorite All-Time Team (name the incarnation of it, ie. X-Men Gold Team, etc)
    Stern's Avengers (250-280): Captain America, Captain Marvel, Hercules, Wasp, Starfox, Black Knight, Namor.
    Favorite 3 Current Heroes.
    Wolverine - a long term favorite but on the end of some very good solo stories in the last few years - I believe he works better in a team book than by himself.
    Captain America - for standing up for what he believes in
    Hulk - if you're not reading Planet Hulk you're missing out.
    Favorite All-Time Hero.
    Wolverine. But the character's worked less well since he's had a solo book.
    Favorite 3 Current Villians.
    I don't think there are any really good villains around at the moment. Does Zemo still count as I've got a feeling he's up to no good....
    Favorite All-Time Villian.
    I'm not sure I have one. Possibly the original Hobgoblin
    Favorite Comic-Based Movie
    X-Men
    Favorite Comic-Based Cartoon
    Spiderman & his Amazing Friends. It was what was on when I was a kid !
