Dennis O’Neil, Mel Gibson, Scientology, and Woody Allen

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.

    Instead of boycotting Woody Allen, Mel Gibson, and others to make one feel righteous, people could pledge to spend as much money as they do on Woody Allen’s movies on donations to some organization that helps children or that fight for religious tolerance, or any other cause diametrically opposed to be the bad behaviour of said celebrity.

    That way you get to enjoy the movie AND genuinely do something to help. If you feel particularly guilty for enjoying Woody Allen-related entertainment, then pledge to donate 2x, 3x, or 10x the cost of the movie ticket.

    As for Scientology, I try to be an open-minded essentialist, and I really believe that most religions have genuine glimpses of a more complicated truth. But with Scientology, it’s very hard.
