    Both Dan DiDio and Jeanette Kahn were hired from outside the comics industry, so it wouldn't surprise me that this will be the tack Warners takes again.

    It might be someone from young adult book publishing from Warner Books.

    That would fit in with the other rumor that DC will be bringing in new writers from outside comics -- from TV and animation -- because they don't want to keep going back to the same limited talent pool.

    In that regard, it would make sense that they get a fresh perspective in the top office.

    I think for us as fans, it would be best so that the person they do hire doesn't come with any negative fan baggage. Better to have an unknown, so that we can focus on the characters and stories rather than the backstage drama.

    However, if they DO hire from within the industry, I voted for Karen Berger, who besides fostering the comics that eventually became Vertigo, also edited lots of great superhero comics such as Legion of Super-Heroes (coming in at the tail end of Great Darkness) and George Perez's Wonder Woman revamp among others.

    Ever in my humble opinion, if I could hire Jim Shooter like Editor in Chief, I would also hire Kurt Busiek like Artistic Director, because what he wrote in the preface of Astro City Vol. 1 proves (at least to me) he understand very well what make the superhero comics great and what they need to become great again.

    P.S. Like I wrote in the Batman section, I would give the entire franchise of Batman to the staff of "Batman; the animated series".
    Shooter is a nightmare to work with, that wouldn't be tolerated today.

    Not to mention Didio basically did a "Jim Shooter" early in his long reign and that turned out to be a disaster with events like One Year Later and Countdown. A micromanaging dictatorial head editor only works if he and his audience are in sync, otherwise you have a guy who is utterly loathed by the fans.

    Come on about half the people ( if not more ) want to see him as far as possible from dc or marvel ... send in in a obscure compagnie ... archie comics dark circle ? or a even least popular one where he cant harm no one

    OP Question (of those listed) -

    Karen Berger should take the helm, IMHO.

    Isn’t Jim Lee still there? He was copublisher with Didio so do we even know therapy are going to feel the need to replace him?

    Grant Morrison is who Id want but Id accept Geoff Johns too.

    Hell no to the Snyder mention. I think his stories are great but he stretches things out longer than they need to be.

    If only we could get Karen Berger back! If not her, then Geoff. I do think however as others have said, they will look outside the industry.

    Certainly not Geoff Jonhs. Or Grand Morrison.

    I loke some of their ideas, but most of those are actually either boring or even utterly terrible.

    As for the others, I've honestly no idea who they are, and don't really give a fuck. I just want someone who won't go all "only pre-Flashpoint matters" and revert characters like Red Hood to the horror show that he was before New 52 and send others like Signal to limbo, death, or wheverever.
