Writing an episode called Batman: The Brave and the Bold with Batman having tough fights was not as hard as fighting his own battle in real life:

"Utahn Jake Black wrote the Friday, Nov. 19, episode of "Batman: The Brave and the Bold." And, while he’s been writing for TV and comic books for years, this one is something special.

"I’m really proud of the episode. It was the first TV that I had written in a year," said Black, 31. "And it was just as I was coming out of this awful period of my life."

A period marked by his battle with cancer — Hodgkin’s lymphoma, to be exact. "It was pretty brutal," he said.
