Eando Binder is a pen-name used by two mid-20th-century science fiction authors, Earl Andrew Binder (1904-1965) and his brother Otto Binder (1911-1974). The name is derived from their first initials ("E and O Binder"). The Eando Binder pen-name was sometimes used for works produced jointly by Earl and Otto, and sometimes for works produced solely by Otto.

Under the Eando name, the Binders wrote some published science fiction, including stories featuring a heroic robot named Adam Link (in actuality, all of the Adam Link stories were written solely by Otto Binder). The first Adam Link story, published in 1939, is titled I, Robot. An unrelated collection of stories by Isaac Asimov, also entitled I, Robot, was published in 1950. The name was chosen by the publisher, against Asimov's wishes.

By 1939, Otto had taken over all of the writing, leaving Earl to act as his literary agent. Under his own name, Otto wrote for the Captain Marvel line of comic books published by Fawcett Comics (1941-1953) and the Superman line for DC Comics (1948-1969), as well as numerous other publishers, with credited stories numbering over 4400. He is best known as the co-creator of Supergirl and for his many scripts for Captain Marvel Adventures and other stories involving the entire superhero Marvel Family. The pen-name Eando Binder is also credited with over 160 comic book stories.
