A Marvel Comics writer best known for his brilliant work on licensed property comics like Rom Spaceknight and The Micronauts, creating memorable characters and settings that long outlasted the products that inspired them. He is the creator of Rocket Raccoon and the co-creator of Cloak & Dagger and Captain Universe. He also worked on mainstream characters like the Incredible Hulk (including the memorable "Crossroads" saga), Iron Man, Spider-Man, and Alpha Flight. 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.
