Allan Heinberg (b. 29 June 1967) is an American film scriptwriter, who currently writes Young Avengers for Marvel Comics, and has been a writer and producer on The Naked Truth, Party of Five, Sex and the City, Gilmore Girls, The O.C., and currently Grey's Anatomy.
Heinberg's Young Avengers was a sales success for Marvel, though faced criticism early on due to complaints that the book was an attempt to manufacture their own version of DC Comic's successful teen series "Teen Titans". The series also gained favorable press for its inclusions of two gay characters, Wiccan and Hulkling. Heinberg himself is openly gay.
After co-writing a 5-issue arc of DC Comics's JLA (JLA 115-119) with Geoff Johns, Heinberg and artist Terry Dodson relaunched Wonder Woman following the "Infinite Crisis" mini-series. The Heinberg/Dodson arc "Who Is Wonder Woman?" originally was for 3 issues, but then became five. But delays pushed back the finale, which it was decided to release the final part in WONDER WOMAN ANNUAL #1 (cover date: Nov. 2007).
Heinberg currently shares a writing studio, The Empath Magic Tree House, with fellow TV and comics scribes Jeph Loeb and Geoff Johns.
Heinberg is a graduate of Booker T. Washington High School in Tulsa, Oklahoma and Yale University class of 1989. He was in Morse College.
