    Geoff Johns - for good or bad - basically revamped what seemed to be every DC character and group for a long period of time. Newsarama ranks his 10 best:

    No Aquaman?
    No Vibe?
    No Shazam?
    No Star-Spangled Kid, his premiere work?

    You could just fold Superboy and Kid Flash into the Titans spot because it all happened in that title.

    Just shows how much good he did, that there are still characters left off the list that he had a huge impact on.

    True. Hell, I count his Wally Flash run and his Barry Flash run as separate revamps.


    On the other hand though. I’d never let him on Batman or Wonder Woman.

    How is the DC Universe Rebirth ranked first?
    That's the worst of them. The least straightforward and most confusing of them all. They'll have to publish a new event just to sort everything out LOL.
    The DC Universe Rebirth one-shot is a great read, but Rebirth as a whole failed to accomplish what it set out to do and made the continuity more confusing than ever.

    Green Lantern should be first. GL being on the top of the charts for years is no small feat.
    Creatively speaking, JSA is the strongest to me.
    Can't believe they didn't mention Aquaman or Shazam.

    Until Flashpoint came along, I thought the direction he was going in was that he was going to make a new Justice League based on the characters he was using in Brightest Day.

    A roster consisting of: Martian Manhunter, Firestorm, Hawkman, Hawkgirl, Aquaman, Barry Flash, Hal Green Lantern, and possibly Mera and Atom.

    That would have been really awesome.

    Conner and Bart shouldn't be on the list at all. He did more bad than good with those revamps. I've never understood how taking original characters with unique personalities and then turning them into them carbon copies of young Clark and young Wally respectively is good revamping.

    GL is his magnum opus, hands down. I appreciate him bringing back the Legion/Superman connection definitively, so that would be really high up. Heard good things about his JSA but I'm not a big JSA fan that's all second hand info.

    Aquaman is his best work, and my favourite character.

    Shazam, Hawkman, and the JSA (Robinson did a lot of the heavy lifting, narratively) are also all rad.

    Really great stuff!

    JSA, Hawkman, Aquaman are 1,2, and 3 for me, in terms of how much I enjoyed the work.
    I haven’t liked everything Geoff’s done, but three books?
    Fan-tastic.

    His worst rebirth for me would have to be Hal Jordan as the Spectre.

    GL would have to top any list I'd make. Made Hal my favorite Lantern and made the GL mythos way more interesting to me than it had been to me as a kid seeing GL in cartoons.

    That was him?
    No, I didn’t like that either.

    Really? That’s cool that his work got you in that zone.

    Which cartoons?
    As a kid all I really had was the rare Super Friends cameo...:

    ...so, not a lot!
