Dwayne McDuffie was an African-American writer of comic books and television, known for co-founding the pioneering minority-owned-and-operated comic-book company Milestone Media, creating the animated television series Static Shock, and writing and producing the magnificent animated series Justice League Unlimited. He heavily featured black super-heroine Vixen in the episodes he wrote. When I first read about him last year, I was extremely inspired. A few weeks ago, I decided to see what new projects he might be working on—possibly how the felt about the new Ultimate Spider-Man being of African/Latino decent—but found that he died months earlier, February 21, 2011.
