Dennis O’Neil: Honor

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.

    Being only 41, what I know of Dr. Wertham is restricted to what comic creators say of him. That said, he probably believed what he was saying even the research didn’t support it. It’s not hard to find examples of well-meaning individuals who falsify data because they believed the facts hadn’t caught up to reality yet.
