God, now we lost Len Wein as well. How is that even possible?
I really wanted to post that great clip from the Jack Kirby: Storyteller documentary, with Len & Marv becoming little kids again while talking about visiting Jack's house in their youth, but couldn't locate it sadly. The whole thing is on youtube tho', so watch it, if only to see how neither of these guys ever stopped being fans.
As well as creating two characters you may've heard of, Wein was also The Hulk's AND The JLA's best writer for my money and, as I say, a genuine fan right to the end.
So here's a classic fannish moment, an unofficial Marvel / DC crossover that Len cooked up with buddies Steve Englehart & Gerry Conway. It's the ultimate Rutland Halloween story, as The Beast fights The Juggernaut, the JLA face off against Felix Faust, and Thor battles Loki.
But those aren't the main story. The main story is the tale of how Len, Steve, Gerry & Glynis got to Rutland. And how everybody keeps trying to steal Englehart's car.
It'll make you smile. Which is what Len Wein spent his life making us do.
