* AlternateCompanyEquivalent: Marvel's Sentry is basically Triumph, minus all the flaws and conflicts that make Triumph interesting. This was apparently an improvement,as Sentry was a much, MUCH more popular character than Triumph.

In a neat bit of irony, when he returned to comics in 2016 to write ''ComicBook/DeathstrokeRebirth'', he *was* a flagship talent, even garnering an Eisner nomination. As a result, in 2017 DC made him the main writer for ''Franchise/{{Justice League|OfAmerica}}'' until the ''ComicBook/JusticeLeagueNoJustice'' anyway.

He also worked on ''ComicBook/{{Deadpool}}'', ''ComicBook/{{Steel}}'', ''ComicBook/JusticeLeagueTaskForce'', and other, less popular/successful characters and teams (including his doomed-from-the-starting-gate epic, ''ComicBook/TheCrew''.) He never really got a crack at writing Franchise/{{Batman}}, Franchise/{{Superman}}, or any other A-list character. Reports of how bitter (or not) he was over this vary. While a lot of his fans like to claim racism is responsible, Priest himself has always taken the high road, focusing more on just exactly how difficult it is to truly break through in the industry, particularly if your first or second project isn't an enormous success, and the tendency of DC and Marvel to give their flagship books to flagship talent.

Added DiffLines:

** Priest's self-published superhero novella series ''1999'' features a couple of characters that should be instantly familiar to fans of his comics work, including Even Dwyer, who's a ''lot'' like Kasper Cole.


Added DiffLines:

* SelfDeprecation: In one of the last issues of his original run of ''Quantum & Woody'', several pages are devoted to a comic book Eric happens to read, which is a blatant parody of Priest's ''Black Panther'' run, right down to making fun of his own creative tics.

Christopher Priest, formerly Jim Owsley, is a comic book writer. He's famous mostly for things that have very little to do with his comics (namely, his race and various inter-office pissing contests), which is a shame, because as far as the people who read his work are concerned, he may have been one of the very best the industry has ever seen.

In a little bit if irony, once Priest returned to comics in 2016 to write ''ComicBook/DeathstrokeRebirth'', he *was* a flagship talent, even garnering an Eisner nomination. So in 2017, DC actually made him the main writer for ''ComicBook/JusticeLeague''.

He was a notorious victim and/or perpetrator of ExecutiveMeddling.
