    Otto Oscar Binder - 'Eando Binder'
Search for 'Otto Oscar Binder - 'Eando Binder'' on Amazon

Though Otto Binder's life was shorter than that of his brother, Jack, his impact on comics was undoubtedly greater. His life in comics started at the dawn of the Golden Age in 1939 and continued virtually until his death in 1974.

In that time he had a career that spanned many titles, but there are two characters with which he'll probably always be linked: Captain Marvel and Superman. He wrote almost 75% of the Fawcett title Captain Marvel Adventures; created the characters Mary Marvel, Tawky Tawny, and Mr. Mind; and came up with the concepts of the "Marvel Family" and the "Sivana Family".

When Fawcett closed its doors, and the Marvel Family seemed to be on the brink of obscurity, he went to work for Fawcett's rival, DC. Despite the bitter Superman/Captain Marvel lawsuit of the time, he became one of the SIlver Age Superman's most prolific writers. There, he wrote for every publication that featured Kal-El, and helped shape numerous parts of the Superman legend. Perhaps most significantly, he helped to create Supergirl of Earth-1.

He also had significant work in other DC publications.

Date of Birth: 08/26/1911
