After those critical successes, he wrote ''ComicBook/ArkhamAsylumASeriousHouseOnSeriousEarth'', which became the best selling graphic novel up to that point, and featured selected members of Batman's rogues gallery - as well as the Dark Knight himself - as different aspects of non-comic book, medical insanity, such as schizophrenia and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. He then wrote several miniseries in Britain and for VertigoComics, and rose to stardom with the relaunch of ''Franchise/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica'', which featured DC's big superheroes together again for the first time in years. Besides being aptly described elsewhere on this website as "made up of back-to-back Crowning Moments of Awesome", Morrison's JLA also served as inspiration for the Franchise/{{DCAU}}'s ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'', usually made up of back-to-back Crowning Moments of Awesome itself. At the time he was writing JLA, he was working on Creator/VertigoComics' ''ComicBook/TheInvisibles'', his most personal world, which he described as information given to him by Aliens during an abduction in Kathmandu.

His first published comic book work was Gideon Stargrave in 1978. After a few attempts at Marvel UK, he started writing Comicbook/{{Zenith}} for Britain's ''ComicBook/TwoThousandAD'' magazine. Like pretty much every superhero comic by English/Scottish/Irish writers during the eighties, it was both a superhero deconstruction and an excuse to take shots at MargaretThatcher. It was because of Zenith that Morrison was hired to do a comic about ComicBook/AnimalMan, a character few knew and nobody cared about, and started his long tradition of taking total losers and transforming them into something completely awesome. Next was the ''Comicbook/DoomPatrol'', turning them into the greatest constant MindScrew ever put into Four Colored pages.

* DarkerAndEdgier: Basically everything he writes, but especially his run on ''New X-Men'..

* OldShame: Never, ever mention his time on the UK ''Franchise/{{Zoids}}'' comic. It tends to be "conveniently forgotten" by his biographers and fandom, and he seems to prefer that it remains obscure. However, ''Zoids'' fans who know about it generally rate it high and wish [[CutShort the ending was known...]]

* WeUsedToBeFriends: With Creator/MarkMillar. Morrison was a mentor to the then up-and-coming writer and the two collaborated on plenty of books. It's only when Millar went off in his own direction and immersed himself in the DarkerAndEdgier tropes Morrison both despised and is trying to subvert that the two became estranged. When asked in an interview if the two still hung out, Morrison replied with a blunt "No."
-->'''Morrison''': There's a very good chance of running into him, and I hope I'm going 100 miles an hour when it happens.
