A MarvelComics writer best known for his brilliant work on [[MerchandiseDriven licensed property]] comics like ''RomSpaceknight'' and ''The Franchise/{{Micronauts}},'' creating memorable characters and settings that long outlasted the [[{{Toys}} products]] that inspired them. He also worked on mainstream characters like ''Comicbook/TheIncredibleHulk'' (including the memorable [[AlternateUniverse "Crossroads"]] saga), ''ComicBook/IronMan'', ''ComicBook/SpiderMan'', and ''ComicBook/AlphaFlight''. He was the tragic victim of a hit and run driver in 1992 and suffered brain damage from the accident. He has been in institutional care since then.
