Although originating in [=McDuffie's=] indie MilestoneComics label, Static eventually moved to the DCComics Universe, and his creator followed suit. [=McDuffie=] wrote for DC Comics, and contributed to various animated DC spin-offs, including ''StaticShock'', ''JusticeLeague'' and several DirectToVideo movies. He was the main writer and editor for the ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10 Alien Force}}'' and ''{{Ben 10 Ultimate Alien}}'' animated series. Before Milestone, [=McDuffie=] also worked at MarvelComics, where he created ''DamageControl'', a series about the people who clean up the mess after superhero-supervillain battles. Much later, he returned to Marvel temporarily to write ''ComicBook/FantasticFour'', which had fallen into the hands of an editor who remembered [=McDuffie=]'s love of the characters from the days when they were both lowly Marvel minions together. Sadly and shockingly to his fans, [=McDuffie=] passed away suddenly on February 22nd, 2011 due to complications during a surgical procedure he had the day before. His last work was the script for ''JusticeLeagueDoom'', the animated version of ''JLA: Tower of Babel''. He was 49, having just recently had a birthday ''a day'' before his death. ---- Works by Dwayne [=McDuffie=] with their own trope pages include: * ''WesternAnimation/AllStarSuperman'' * ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'' * ''{{Ben 10 Ultimate Alien}}'' * ''{{Damage Control}}'' * ''{{Comicbook/Hardware}}'' * ''ComicBook/{{Icon}}'' * ''{{Justice League}}'' * ''{{Justice League Crisis On Two Earths}}'' * ''{{Justice League Doom}}'' * ''{{Comicbook/Static}}'' * ''{{Static Shock}}'' ---- Other works by Dwayne [=McDuffie=] provide examples of: * AwesomeMcCoolname * ChildProdigy: Dwayne went to college as a child. * DeadpanSnarker: There's no better example than "Teenage Negro Ninja Thrashers", a mock pitch satirizing the state of black Marvel characters in the late 80s (along with the Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles). * DoingItForTheArt: Dwayne was very passionate about his work, and one of his final online posts was him showing joy at Static, one of his original creations, finally being made into an Action Figure. * ExecutiveMeddling: [[http://comiccritics.com/2009/06/16/the-sad-strange-tale-of-dwayne-mcduffie/ This sums it up pretty well]].

* DeadpanSnarker: There's no better example than "Teenage Negro Ninja Thrashers", a mock pitch satirizing the state of black Marvel characters in the late 80s (along with the TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles).

* ChildGenius: Dwayne went to college as a child.

* InsufferableGenius * MagnumOpus: For his comic book runs, his creation of MilestoneComics is definitely the case. For animation, his roles in both StaticShock and the JusticeLeague.

Found there was a Trope page for JL: Doom... updating accordingly.
Sadly and shockingly to his fans, [=McDuffie=] passed away suddenly on February 22nd, 2011 due to complications during a surgical procedure he had the day before. His last work was the script for ''Justice League: Doom'', the animated version of ''JLA: Tower of Babel''. He was 49, having just recently had a birthday ''a day'' before his death.
