Dennis O’Neil: The Pit and the Conundrum

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 Pit in essence as I’ve understood it was a naturally unnatural phenomenon that Ra’s discovered and then used/claimed for himself for hundreds of years. How it works and why seemed like silly questions, when presented with the premise that Bruce Wayne could learn to master nigh-everything humanity has to offer by the time he’s 40, and then spend most of his nights in costume crippling crooks and raising Robins.

    Sometimes a vat of chemicals is more reasonable. Sometimes it restores you, sometimes it bleaches your skin and changes your hair color, what’s important is that you come out crazy, without fail, every time.
