Matt S. Wayne is an American writer of comic books and television. Wayne is probably best known for his work on the animated series Niko and the Sword of Light, Cannon Busters and Ben 10: Omniverse, and writing and editing comic books for Milestone Media.

Comic books

Wayne's first comic book credit was for material in Marvel Year-In-Review #1 for Marvel Comics. He then wrote several stories for Hamilton Comics.

When McDuffie co-founded the comic book company Milestone Media, Wayne was hired as an editor on titles such as Icon and Hardware. Wayne also wrote several titles, including the series Shadow Cabinet and Heroes.

After Milestone ceased publishing monthly comics in 1997, Wayne wrote for DC Comics.


Wayne credits his friend Richard Pursel for helping him get his first job writing in television for the animated series Poochini.[2] His friendship and past work with Dwayne McDuffie led to other television writing work, including Static Shock, What's New, Scooby-Doo?, Danny Phantom, Tom and Jerry Tales, Krypto the Superdog, and Storm Hawks.

Wayne was hired to write several episodes of the animated series Justice League Unlimited and was eventually promoted to story editor. Continuing his work on animated projects based on popular comic books, he also wrote several episodes of the Legion of Super Heroes and the Spectacular Spider-Man.

Wayne also wrote the screenplay for the animated film, Hellboy Animated: Sword of Storms.
