    Joss Whedon- Batgirls (Cassie, Steph, and Babs)
    Alan Moore- Captain Marvel (think "Supreme" rather than "Marvelman/Miracleman", though I'd buy it either way)
    Kurt Busiek- Justice Society

    More realistically, poaching recent Marvel types:

    Jeff Parker- Green Lantern
    Christos Gage- Teen Titans
    Dan Slott- Nightwing

    A few months ago I would have put: "Keith Giffen-anything DC Cosmic" but we're getting that now so yay DC.

    Seconded!

    Also, I think Duane Swierczynski would write a fun JLA title.

    Brian Keene wrote a kickass issue of Doom Patrol in its last incarnation, and I relly liked his Devil-Slayer mini from Marvel a few years ago.

    Victor Gischer wrote a fun Deadpool series awhile back, and is currently writing The Shadow for DYnamite.

    Yes, all three are authors of crime and horror novels. And I was a fan of all three before any of their comic work. :)

    I assume you're putting Gaiman under "impossible" because the title refers to "ongoing" title? Because he is coming back to do another Sandman mini.

    I like the rest of your choices, although why is Garth Ennis mad at DC? I know they had the split over "The Boys" but it seemed to be pretty amicable.

    I would want Hickman and Aaron. I haven't read anything by Gillen but I hear good things, so I'll pick him to round out my three.
    Saga, Private Eye, Chew, Umbral, Deadly Class, Pretty Deadly

    She-Hulk, Ghost Rider, Loki, Moon Knight, Iron Fist, Daredevil, Punisher, X-Factor

    Yes, that's right.

    I think that's it. He just prefers to go where he's sure that won't happen to him and he doesn't seem to be interested in writing super-heroes. He's mad in the same way Ellis is, as in he doesn't really like the way things work at DC, and not like Alan "I completely hate you and I'm tired of super-heroes anyway" Moore or Mark "I'll probably come back when Didio leaves" Waid.
    I'm surprised you didn't say anything about Don Rosa I was actually expecting of being accused of being silly, mostly by people that have never read his work.

    Bolded ones are the ones I most agree with you on. The only Lantern I'd put Kieron on is kyle rayner myself

    I think you can fit Brubaker in this cathegory as well. It's how he ended up at Marvel in the first place.
    'The marquis. Well, you know, to be honest, he seems a little bit dodgy to me.'
    'Mm,' she agreed. 'He's a little bit dodgy in the same way that rats are a little bit covered in fur."

    Joe Casey on Legion of Superheroes. Actually surprised that this never happened. He's a fan of the franchise-- although it's the 5yr Gap he's most fond of-- and I don't think there's anyone in comics who writes young adults better. I think part of the problem with the Legion over the past two decades is that everything seems so familiar-- and yes, I realize there's been reboots, but those reboots have always covered the same ground, with the exception of DnA's use of Ra's Al Ghul-- that I think we need someone to approach it with a lot of new ideas and imagination.

    Matt Wagner on anything, but Superman, really. Wagner has a gift for cutting right to the core of characters and using them to tell amazing stories that seem simple on the surface, but have a lot of depth when you look at them closely. He has a gift for the so-called "iconic" characters, reinventing them in a way that feels familiar yet allows them to move forward, and I think that's what Superman really needs right now.

    John Ostrander on Deathstroke or Grifter or any of those grim'n'gritty Edge titles. No one really does it better than him, and he never insults your intelligence.

    Garth Ennis on Red Hood? Hadn't considered that one, and while he could do good work on it I'd imagine it'd be too close to superheroes for him.

    He wrote the Shadow recently, which was kind of superhero-y. Ennis has made a lot of disparaging comments about Batman (some of them I even agree with), so I always imagined given all the arguments Jason has with Batman on lethal force, Ennis would completely agree with Jason. A Red Hood book in the vein of Hitman or Punisher MAX would be sick.

    I'd like to see Bendis write JLA, Rucka back on a Batman title that Snyder isn't doing and Warren Ellis on Doom Patrol (yes, I know there isn't one yet, but still . . .)

    Others: Garth Ennis on Aquaman (hell, why not) and JLA Dark; Alan Moore on Animal Man
