Comic book legend Dennis O’Neil passed away at the age of 81. O’Neil was a writer for both Marvel and DC Comics from the 1960s through the 1990s. He created Ra’s and Talia al Ghul and, as DC’s Batman editor, oversaw the Knightfall storyline that introduced the world to Bane.
In 2012, Joel Murphy interviewed O’Neil for an article about Bane to introduce causal fans to the character before the release of Christopher Nolan’s film The Dark Knight Rises. Most of the interview, unfortunately, ended up on the cutting room floor and has never been heard before. But today, to honor the man and his amazing legacy, Murphy is releasing the full, unedited 40-minute interview for the first time.
