Chris Arrant from Gamesradar is reporting that famed Green Lantern, Green Arrow and Batman writer Dennis J. "Denny" O'Neil, has passed away at the age of 81. Denny also worked under Stan Lee at Marvel and was one of the co-creators of the infamous Batman Villain, Ra's al Ghul.

Most people are familiar with Batman as the dark and brooding dark knight, but when Denny took over writing and editing our favorite flying rodent hero, it was on the heels of the ultra campy TV show. In the late 60's the comic at the time was more closely related to show than its dark roots. Thankfully it was Denny's guidance that put bats back on the dark path we've come to know and love so dearly.


Batman is one of the most iconic super heroes the world has ever know and he wouldn't exist as we all know him today without people like Denny that worked behind the scenes to bring him to life. He will be missed by his many fans around the world.
