: I know Stan Lee's done some great stuff and was one of the originals, but there's no way he is the best writer/creator out ever (I may be jumping to conclusions here, it's just that I assumed you liked him best because of Mallrats).
So... you're saying liking him is the same as thinking he's the best writer/creator out ever?! That's ridiculous!
: Frank Miller is without a doubt a better writer.
: Any Batman series he wrote is possibly the best series out there...
Even pretending that sentence actually held together, I'd still remind you of Batman/Spawn.
: ... and Sin City is just positively wonderful.
Yup. I'm still struggling with your point.
: He spends more time on the development of the characters, rather than coming up with a unique concept, then sacrificing development for 'lots of cool fighting and stuff'. Lee just can't stack up.
And Miller ain't an icon to the masses, and Lee is.
Besides, co-creating the Fantastic Four, the Avengers, Spider-man, Daredevil, The Incredible Hulk, etc. is hardly an accomplishment to spit at, so your point fades ever further into the bizarre and obscure. Please come back when you have a *worthwhile* point to make.
