Dennis O’Neil, Time Bandit

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.

    Some temporal terms, such as “day” and “year”, do have objective meaning. Said meaning varies from planet to planet (a “day” on Jupiter lasts about ten, well, hours, while a Jovian “year” is just shy of 12 Earth years), and can even change over time (lunar tides are slowing Earth’s rotation, gradually – an Earth day used to be about 22 hours long), but they do have definitions.

    A “day” is how long it takes for the Sun (in a multiple-star system, pick the sun you want to use) to move from where it is, and come back around. A “year” is how long it takes for that world to circle its sun(s). Some hot-Jupiter worlds, like Bellerophon around 51 Pegasi, have extremely short years – Bellerophon orbits 51 Peg in just over 4 Earth days. (We have no solid data on how long it takes Bellerophon to rotate on its axis, however.)

    Now, seconds, minutes, hours, and such are defined entirely by humans…
