Dennis O’Neil: Robber Barons, Then and Now

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.

    So, research shows that powerful people are less empathetic? I’m sure lots of folks would attribute that to that old cliche: “power corrupts.” Me, I think they get it backwards, because I’d say that, “corruption empowers.” The way our society is structured, those who are more ruthless go the front of the class, and that is why you will find lots of psychopaths among CEOs and other rich and powerful professions. They have what it takes to be competitive. In a saner society, they’d get therapy, in our society, they get the reins of power.
