That's a tough one. Several to choose from. I'll have to consider this. It's definitely one of the older ones for me.

Bill Finger, the original and best.

I can’t stand Scott Snyder, so overrated.

You left off Steve Englehart. He’d get my vote.

As it is, my vote’s for Denny O’Neil.

Plus, this thread really should be in the Comics section rather than What If?

I thought we open the polls here. If you want to, you can carry it to comics section, wktf.

I agree with wktf - Steve Englehart's Batman was fantastic. He did not write many stories but they were very influential to this day.

Moderators can add Englehart, if they want to. No probem for me. I didn't write him because i didn't know him. Never read his Batman.

Denny O'neil, for me. If Dini were included he'd probably be second not just for comics but of course his work on BTAS and Arkham Asylum and City.

Third would be Loeb, followed by Frank Miller who I know everyone goes "ohhh the DKR" but honestly I think Year One is his best Batman.

The rest, some are okay, some I wouldn't even care to have on the list.
