I'm aware. I'm also aware that he thought up the twist with who the real villain in Booster's story was and did it early enough so the team could change things as needed.
He does his stories just fine and I find them really easy to follow, where most people seem to have the issue is that he's too confusing. I honestly don't get that, he's very easy to understand, he just thinks on a higher ground and tries on a different narrative style than most writers.
I love Grant because he's different and usually very good at being different.
And read his JLA run. It's not him trying different, it's him trying blockbuster level stories and doing it better than every other major event ever. Seriously, that run had plenty of stuff that Marvel and DC would be milking as major events today, except actually well done, mainly because there are no annoying tie-ins.
As for his views on Batman, I find it interesting in Batman R.I.P since he's shown as a seriously troubled man (and he is) while also an amazing human being able to do what no one else can. Hell, he beat triggered insanity. Plus, writers have been messing with Bruce's moral code since forever. He started out as a Punisher type character with more stealth, Morrison takes this into account with the many other incarnations when writing him.
