Dennis O’Neil: Sherlock and Theseus’s Paradox

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.

    My answer? Multiverse. They are all Sherlock. They are all the Question. They exist simultaneously, though some people may favor a specific version over others.

  2. I think Sherlock Holmes has become a myth of the modern age. He has an implied ethos, so any interpretation can be Sherlock so long as it fits the ethos we believe Sherlock Holmes has.
