In remembrance of Dwayne McDuffie, I wrote a brief list of some of my five favorite episodes of Justice League and Justice League Unlimited. Three of the episodes listed below are written by the man himself.

Much of the DC Animated Universe is attributed to Paul Dini or Bruce Timm, but Dwayne McDuffie's contribution helped to build that world beyond just Batman or Superman. I can say with absolute confidence that the only reason that I and my boyfriend buy/read American comics is to search for hints of those great characters we were given in Justice League.

His work to promote diversity and multiculturalism, while fighting tokenism and stereotypes, made him a leader in the industry.  He gave us Static Shock! He will be sorely missed. It remains to be seen if there's anyone in the industry today that could step up and fill his enormous shoes.

RIP, Mr. McDuffie.
