Dennis O’Neil: Old Bats Never Die

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.

    This is a monumentally bad idea. My opinion is that the 1966 television show was second only to Mort Weisinger’s editorial reign as things that damaged the image of comic books.

    I disliked – won’t go so far as to say “hated” the series while it was on.

    I always figured that the series got handed to a show-runner who felt that comics were beneath him and set out to make fun of them.

    What a dumb idea.
