    :rip  Haven't heard of him before now, but I certainly enjoyed most of the TF episode's he's written. Even the one I don't care for, Webworld, I give huge props to for being the first fully Decepticon centered episode of Transformers.

    First time I've heard of him, but still sad to hear this. Of his episodes I've seen, they were all very memorable. May he rest in peace. :rip

    And Nightcrawler, Storm and Colossus. He and Dave Cockrum brought the X-Men back from the dead in the 1970s and revamped it into the series we know today. Chris Claremont took the new premise and ran with it, turning it into one of the most successful reinventions of a comic book ever and making the X-Men a household name. Wein had a massive impact on Marvel comics, and comics in general.

    I'm currently reading through the 60s in Marvel Unlimited, and I can't wait to get to Wein and Claremont's reboot.

    Webworld is my favorite episode of G1, so I salute the man who brought it to us and showed us how truly batshit insane Galvatron truly was.

    RIP Mr. Wein.
