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.

    I really like Harry's Law. It stars a woman who is neither young nor svelte, and she doesn't spend all her time agonizing about what men think about her. She's like Ally McBeal, only opposite.

    You mentioned ALPHAS, Denny. That show is at least supposed to be returning, isn't it? Television is doing better by superheroes on the animation front (although, everything seems to be on cable, not broadcast TV).

    You might have at least mentioned the Lynda Carter Wonder Woman, which was actually pretty good.

    CBS's "Person of Interest" is the closest thing to a superhero series this season. It's like Batman, with the brains and the brawn divided between two men; or a male version of Birds of Prey.

    Personally, I think the dynamic would work better with a team, rather than just two people. The characters are little too hard-edged to carry the show alone for very long.

    Sorkin's still working in television, albeit in the rareified air of HBO, where he's prepping a new show with, once again, a thinly veiled version of Keith Olbermann as one of the characters (apparently Sorkin offered KO the chance to play the character, perhaps jokingly, between versions of Countdown. KO turned him down.)
