Dennis O’Neil: A Marvel-ous New Year

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.

    The two top-grossing films of 1969 were the hippie biker flick “Easy Rider” and the James Bond film “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.” Interesting, in light of the fact that a few years later the GREEN LANTERN/GREEN ARROW comic series had the heroes crossing the country to “search for America” and the BATMAN series had an international crime lord who wanted the hero to marry his daughter—-both having the same plot points as the aforementioned movies. Funny how translating the plots from one genre/format to another caused Denny to be hailed as one of the foremost comics scripters of his era—nowadays it would probably just result in a lawsuit and have quite the opposite effect that it did then.
