Dennis O’Neil: The Obese Lone Ranger

Dennis O'Neil

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.

  1. The Green Hornet movie was AWFUL. The Green Hornet TV series was a no joke answer to the filled with jokes Batman.

    Fans, like me have been waiting decades to finally see the Green Hornet return. When it did return it was the big screen version of the 60’s Batman show. Did the producers not notice that superhero movies had grown up BIG TIME?

    The Green Hornet was ahead of it’s time back in the day. Now, that the time is right the writers and producers decide to do a campy version of the beloved franchise.

    WHY? Where was the campy superhero movie that made SO MUCH MONEY-someone decided The Green Hornet should follow THAT?

    There was none, and because the GH movie flopped like a fish on meth there won’t be another Green Hornet movie for a few decades if that.

    Oh-and the Lone Ranger SUCKED.

    Well, as Denny pointed out The Lone Ranger movie did try to over-reach a bit, but that final action scene when they play the William Tell Overture made it all worth it.

    “I’m sorry is one sequence worth the price of the ticket.”
    Well possibly not, but I didn’t hate the rest of the movie either. It had a few good scenes, some great scenes and only a couple annoying scenes. It’s main flaw, as Denny said, is trying to be too many things at the same time. Yes, the movie had a huge budget, but it is up there on the screen.

    Nitpick: I believe Britt Reid’s father was the Lone Ranger’s nephew; the son of his dead brother.
