Denny O'Neil passed away on June 11, 2020. He was born on May 3, 1939. He was a comic book writer and editor who wrote for Charlton, DC and Marvel and was an editor at both Marvel and DC. When Julius Schwartz became editor of the SUPERMAN title after Mort Weisinger's retirement, he asked Denny O'Neil to become the new writer for the series. He only lasted for a year before asking editor Schwartz to take him off the title because he found it hard to relate to an omnipotent character. This episode will feature O'Neil's Superman stories.
