    Without Denny O\'Neil we wouldn\'t have the Dark Knight as he know him now. We wouldn\'t have Hal and Oliver\'s friendship. We wouldn\'t have Optimus Prime. The man was a legend. He made the heroes we love and raised them up to greater heights.

    I asked Bob at TFCon last year and he did indeed confirm that he did not name Optimus Prime, though he did name Megatron.

    Met him in the 90's. Very nice guy. Had some of the best Batman stories too. Fantastic gentleman. The world lost another artist.

    I was heartbroken to hear this unfortunate news.

    This man created one of the most iconic and recognisable names in pop culture, but to me this man gave the name to a character and role model that effectively shaped my moral upbringing to the core.

    Thank you Denny O’Neil. Till all are one.

    Indeed. He will truly be missed. I haven't read much of his material, but he left an indelible mark on comics as a whole. Tonight, I am going to pour one out for Mr. O'Neil and continue reading his The Question run.
