Dennis O’Neil: Super-Success

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.

    Many of the baddies seem to exist only to give the goodies somebody to beat.

    Some years ago, a friend (New Orleans’ Dennis Dolbear, who stepped on a rainbow this past Monday), talking about Jim Carey’s portrayal of the Riddler, said “Let’s face it – the Riddler is basically a roadshow Joker, and he’s only there for Batman to keep in shape until a dangerous villain escapes from Arkham again.”
