As a child, Dwayne McDuffie loved comic books. He was impressed with the artwork and he loved the stories. But there was a problem he couldn’t shake. The Black superheroes he read about didn’t seem so relatable to him.
He always loved comics but he focused on his education and went to college getting his master’s degree. Later, he got started in comics working at Marvel. He even helped to create a famous Marvel comic called Damage Control. He co-founded and created Milestone Media. There, even more Black superheroes were born, like Static and Icon.
He would later turn Static into a cartoon called Static Shock, which he wrote for. He would go on to write for other animated series such as Justice League and Ben 10, among other shows.
