Dwayne McDuffie

Dwayne McDuffie (born February 20, 1962 in Detroit, Michigan - February 21, 2011 in Burbank, California) was an American comic book writer, and was a producer of Justice League Unlimited.


McDuffie was an artist at Marvel Comics and Harvey Comics before setting up Milestone Media. With Denys Cowan and several others, he created the Dakotaverse — Static, Icon, Hardware and many others. Milestone went under due to bad sales, and its properties were taken over by DC Comics.

McDuffie was one of the key writers of Static Shock, and was later taken into the Justice League creative team. By the time the series had evolved into Justice League Unlimited, he had become a producer. He also wrote several DC Universe Animated Original Movies.

On February 21, 2011, McDuffie passed away from complications due to a surgical procedure performed the preceding evening.[1]
