William Timothy Mantlo (born November 9, 1951) is an American comic book writer for Marvel Comics 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 and Dagger and Captain Universe. He also worked on mainstream characters like the 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.
