Veteran animation producer Boyd Kirkland has died. According to his son Kyle, Kirkland passed away two days ago while waiting for a new lung at UCLA Medical Center.

Kirkland has dozens of animation credits dating back to 1978. For the past decade, he worked consistently with Marvel Animation as a producer, writer and director.

He was one of the guiding forces for X-Men: Evolution on Kids' WB! and returned to the X-Men franchise for Nicktoons' Wolverine and the X-Men.

"I first met Boyd when I joined X-Men: Evolution in its first season," said animation writer/producer Greg Johnson. "We immediately realized we shared the same vision for the series, and were soon hosting weekly creative meetings to break the stories together, which is why you see a lot of 'Story By Boyd Kirkland & Greg Johnson' credits on the episodes. I worked with him again doing some joint development on Ben 10, as well as translating the story for Ultimate Avengers from the comics, along with Craig Kyle.

"Then when he came aboard Wolverine and the X-Men, it was wonderful to be mapping X-Men sagas with him again. We've shared many hours of fun collaboration together, and through the process had become good friends. I will miss him tremendously."

Before X-Men, Kirkland worked on such Marvel shows as Spider-Man, Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends, Fantastic Four and The Incredible Hulk.

He was also a director on Batman: The Animated series and wrote, directed and produced the SubZero movie featuring Mr. Freeze.

Services have been scheduled for Tuesday.

NBC has released a description for "The Lich, Part 1," the Monday, Feb. 14 episode of The Cape.

Here's how the network describes the episode:

"Orphaned since birth, Conrad Chandler (guest star Glenn Fitzgerald), the heir of one of Palm City's founders, exacts revenge on the public and threatens to paralyze and control the city. The Cape (David Lyons) and Max (Keith David) alert Marty (Dorian Missick) of the impending danger to the city, which backfires on The Cape.

"Meanwhile, the Secretary of Prisons, Patrick Portman (guest star Richard Schiff), aids Orwell (Summer Glau) in her search for the lone heir. Orwell locates Conrad through Netta (guest star Illeana Douglas), his mysterious caretaker, but soon discovers his deeply disturbing past and finds herself in danger. Elsewhere, Dana (Jennifer Ferrin) becomes increasingly uncomfortable with her new social life."
