Mark Waid and Kurt Busiek

Somebody should put Mark Waid and Kurt Busiek in charge of major superhero comics. No, not writing them all... In fact, they're not my favorite writers at all, although I've enjoyed works by both. They do seem the two prominent guys with the best understandings of why Superhero comics work. Why they worked in the '40s, why they worked in the '60s, why they worked in the '80s and how they can work now using elements from each.

I don't suppose it would make sense to have them do it collectively. Give DC to Mark, Marvel to Kurt and see what happens. I bet it's better than what we have now.
