Marvel is already busy working on the Inhumans franchise.
    Lol. Did you even READ DC comics before 2011?? Uh, they really suffer from "lack of character." It was mostly lack of good stories because of the current bumbling editorial regime and Dan Didio.

    And the success of Justice League International, which reached its height of popularity around 1989, also inspired Marvel's Excalibur and the Peter David X-Factor.

    Depends on what one means with that.

    But over all I could nominate the following as Stan Lee-ish in terms of what they've contributed to the DCU and the industry as a whole:
    -Marv Wolfman, large number of characters thats still seeing use, reason writers actually get credits on the cover of books (after the comic code people demanded his picture inserted so people didnt think and actual Wolf-man was involved... it was in that time when things like werewolves and vampires were verboten)
    -Grant Morrison, where Grant goes other writers follow, and stumble generally
    -Frank Miller, because of one book he made, he changed the whole industry... for better or worse
    -Grant Moore... because he's Grant Moore... and perhaps because he best embodies DC as a whole, bit of a douche, doesn't quite connect with the audience

    Note I am picking these not because they are exclusive to DC, most of them have worked for Marvel at one point or another, but the general perception of them is they are DC more than Marvel. Also I am kinda ignoring deceased writers for this because one of the major things Lee has going for him over DC's grand old men, is the fact that he's still alive.
    But is has to be said it's difficult to really say anyone is like Stan Lee in DC since Marvel is a single company that Lee more or less created and now embodies, while DC is a tapestry of different companies and is nearly twice as old... meaning Lee has the advantage of actually living into our celebrity obsessed social media times... which Lee seems very eager to be part of.

    Think most people would agree that Johns is DC's Bendis.

    That's the first name that came to mind, but I have to say Gardner Fox also deserves a mention.

    As i said in post 25, this is what I heard (except I heard his name was going to be Birdman). Thanks for the illustration. It's a riot.

    Except Bendis is actually 10 times worse than Johns on Johns's worst day.

    Geoff Johns is the bedrock of the modern DC universe in a way Bendis could only dream of.

    It's really remarkable the way he's put new life into characters that were sorta wandering in the desert before him.

    you totally beat me to it.

    someone who is bombastic and who takes credit for collaborative efforts?

    plus, Bob and Stan were actually good friends. Stan Lee accompanied Bob and his wife to the premiere of the 1989 Batman movie.

    Heh, pretty much what I thought when I saw the title but if you mean someone that responsible for a lot of popular characters Gerry Conway and Schwartz fit the bill
    Favorite Characters : Cyborg, Hal Jordan, Simon Baz, Tula, Mera ,Bleez, Shazam, Wonder Woman, Agent 37 , Batman, Kon El, Atomica.
