[NS] RIP: Len Wein

Len Wein, Wolverine Co-Creator and ‘X-Men’ Reviver, Dies at 69


Len Wein, the influential comics writer who co-created Marvel’s Wolverine and DC’s Swamp Thing, and who helped revive the “X-Men” series in the 1970s, has died, his friends and industry colleagues said Sunday. He was 69.

The cause of death was not immediately known, but since March, his Twitter feed has detailed several health issues, including a spinal surgery and an abscess on his heel bone. His most recent surgery was Thursday, according to his feed, which included jokes wishing Wein had Wolverine’s quick-healing power.

 

Wein introduced Wolverine with artists John Romita Sr. and Herb Trimpe. The Canadian mutant debuted in “The Incredible Hulk” number 181.
