I agree.

Frank Miller is scarier than anyone above, though.

All good reasons FM isn't on there.

Re: FM

If Frank got the ring, we'd all be *just fine*. Cuz *He'd* be the hero. That means he'd spend all of his Green Power beating himself up.

Re: FM

I clicked on the Comment link to say "Frank Miller," but I see that's been taken care of.

After reading Ironwood, the potential horror Willingham might be able to inflict on women with a Green Lantern ring surpasses my horror for Morrison having one.

To be fair, I only know 3 of these folks, but Alan Moore scares me on any day of the week, hands down.

Grant Morrisson does scarier work.

It's bad enough what he can do to my brain with the Filth. But if he ever got a power ring...

It should be possible to pick both Warren Ellis and Grant Morrison, as there's a physiological limit to how much fear a human can feel and both clear that threshold.

Dave Sim. Without question. Veeeeeery scary.

I was tied between Moore and Ellis, but went with the latter. Moore can have some damned freaky ideas, but Ellis is nastier on a day to day basis.

I can definitely see the Morrison metaphysical angst though. (But with a suspicion that as our street furniture developed supergenius intellect and laser eyes we'd *enjoy it*...)

And if I were at all involved in the movie business it'd definitely be Alan Moore.

While Moore is scary in his own right, Ellis' will unleashed would be the end of the world as we know it. Proof? You want proof? Three words: "Angel." "Stomp." "Future."

Oh, DEFINITELY Phil Foglio.

Gaiman. Why? Because everybody would think, "Oh, at least [narcissist] didn't get it." Nobody would panic, the Green Lantern Corps wouldn't send a clean-up crew, and before you knew it, we'd all be metaphors for something that doesn't actually exist.

You might as well as have asked "Which writer has the most embarrassing fans?"

I chose Willingham, based on what I figured each writer would do with the ring:
Moore: use it to explore his own mind.
Ellis: gross people the Hell out, but leave them pretty much unharmed. Also, use it to power space exploration.
Morrison: see Moore, above. Also, if he was in a particularly good mood, he'd give everyone else a ring too.
Gaiman: create a green glowing theme park for his daughters
Busiek: something fanboyish, along the lines of the Miraclekids in Gaiman's Miracleman.
Waid: see Busiek, above.

Willingham, on the other hand... of all the writers you list, he's the only one I could see enforcing his politics on everyone else. And I loathe his politics (which isn't to say I completely agree with those of anyone else on this list either).
