We have decided the best artist (but you can still vote), now let's see who is the best writer!

You can see Weisinger in the list... He wasn't a regular writer, but his influence as an editor is too important for not being mentioned.

It's hard make a list with only 7 writers, so this time I have added the option "others" (of course, if you chose it, say who is your choice!).

Byrne is my favorite complete author and for me his Superman is #1, but this time I'll not vote for him. My vote is for Mr. Maggin, the one who made a modern Superman in the '70/80s (alongside good writers like Bates, Conway and Wolfman).

D'oh!  You left off my favorite from this list, too!  :lol:

Edmond Hamilton.

But of the ones on the list, Jerry Seigel.  At least during his tenure under Uncle Morty.

Note: if I could add other names, there would be Jeph Loeb.

I would add Edmund Hamilton as well but Seigel has so many things to recommend him --great Legion stories, great Supergirl stories, etc.

I voted for Maggin. I'd really love to see him write Superman again.

Many people want others to accept their opinions as fact. If enough people accept them as fact then it gives the initial person or persons a feeling of power. This is why people will constantly talk about something they hate—they want others to feel the same way. It matters to them that others perceive things the same way that they do.
