DENNIS O’NEIL: The Need For Superheroes

Dennis O'Neil

Dennis O'Neil was born in 1939, the same year that Batman first appeared in Detective Comics. It was thus perhaps fated that he would be so closely associated with the character, writing and editing the Dark Knight for more than 30 years. He's been an editor at Marvel and DC Comics. In addition to Batman, he's worked on Spider-Man, Daredevil, Iron Man, Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern/Green Arrow, the Question, The Shadow and more. O'Neil has won every major award in the industry. His prose novels have been New York Times bestsellers. Denny lives in Rockland County with his wife, Marifran.

    Mr. O’Neil,
    I am from Ferguson MO, I just read your profile in the SLU alumni magazine, and I am going to teach a comic/graphic novel class next year in a local high school – the reason I am posting is that I would love to have some insight into the world you inhabited. I loved the Green Lantern/Green Arrow run and have intentions on teaching a selection of those book. I would enjoy initiating a conversation if you get a chance. Please feel free to email me. Thanks.
