Morrison and Waid are just in another league, and yet Johns gets so much more exposure and power in the company.
I've had this (drunken) debate about Johns with a friend. Johns is very commercial and he has been criticised as not having written something as memorable as "Birthright" or Morrison's. But his more commercial style is probably why he does have more power in the company.
