    Default Favorite Avengers writer?

    Who's your favorite Avengers writer and why? Just getting into Marvel and am curious on your thoughts. Thanks!

    Kurt Buseik because he brought the franchise back from the dead and made it a bestseller again.

    I know Conway had a run in there too, but it was not memorable enough for me to know which stories it was. I also won't include Austen, because that was dreck. Bendis changed what the Avengers was all about, and drove me away from reading the book. Avengers titles today are not the same as they used to be, but there have been some decent runs, Slott , Gage and Ewing stand out above the rest.

    I enjoyed Stern, Busiek and to a lesser degree I enjoyed Johns as my personal top three. Roy Thomas and BMB had their moments as well. If I had to make a top ten then I'd add Hickman, Byrne, Lee, Englehart and Harras as well.

    Though in fairness I haven't really read the Avengers since the end of Secret Wars so my list may've been somewhat different if I had done.

    Kurt Busiek for sure. I would probably never have my favortie character Iron Fist on the team but I still have to choose that guy above all others. His run on the Avengers made the characters feel like legends.

    Well, it changes a lot, but at the moment it's probably STILL...

    ...JONATHAN HICKMAN! : )

    He turned the Avengers into the ultimate team, the ultimate mythology, devouring all of rest of Marvel, and then UPPING THE ANTE! No one could ever come up with greater stakes, no one could ever line up mightier foes, no one could ever make such a day... when all of Earth's Mightiest Heroes had to bond together to fight the foes no single hero could ever hope to withstand alone...

    ...THE BEYONDERS!! : O


    O...M...G...!


    He's then followed by Stan Lee, Brian Bendis and Kurt Busiek. (lol! I notice that I'm the only one with such a mixture, heh heh heh...!)

    Busiek. Then Stern, Englehart, and Thomas. And, as much as he's maligned, I thought Harras' run had some pretty good stories too.
