Love argoyles and now Young Justice. Thank you for your sophisticated art and storytelling. A question regarding Young Justice:
1. Will Ra's al Ghul or Talia at anytime be featured
Argoyles! The best dressed monsters in tartan plaids and kilts!
(Sorry. But great typo, dude!)
1. No comment.
AND it seems time to reiterate AGAIN, once more for this additional time: I will NOT be scooping my own show by revealing spoilers. And of course, if I told you who WASN'T appearing, it would de facto reveal who WAS. So any questions like this will only get a NO COMMENT!
this may seem like a strange question, but I was wondering about the character designs, more specifically in their civvies. At the end of "Independence Day Part 2" before Miss M comes, you see the four guys. With the exception of Superboy, they're all wearing long sleves, Aqualad shown in a sweater and Robin in a sweatshirt AND a coat. While the designs look good, it seems a bit excessive to be wearing so many layers in the middle of the summer. Was this just a decision made by the character designers and animators? Or is the Secret Sanctuary/Happy Harbor just in a colder location?
Thanks for your time!
Aqualad wears long sleeves to hide his extremely identifiable tattoos. (But it's not a sweater. It's a light jacket.)
I don't have as good a justification for Robin or Kid Flash. Maybe it gets cold at night in Rhode Island?
I have two questions on Green Arrow in Young Justice:
1, I noticed that you went with the Green Arrow look with the hood from the Mike Grell series. I always liked that look . I also believe he was using a long bow. What made you decide on the hooded look?
2, I've recently read Green Arrow: The Long Bow Hunters and the first for issues of GA's first series. Have you read Mike Grell's GA comics and what did you think of them?
1. It looked cool and provided us with a nice contrast from Speedy's hat.
2. I didn't read them. I'm sure it sounds petty, but Grell's G.A. was the reason my Black Canary mini-series never went forward. So there seemed no upside to me reading them. If they were great, I'd be envious. If they were awful, I'd be frustrated. (Yes, I'm a heavily flawed individual, but at least I admit it.)
I have a question about Young Justice. In the YJ univese, does the origial Justice Society or any other DC golden age heros exist?
1.Are we going to see Superboy's room in the cave?
2.Does all of Young Justice live in the cave?
3.Where Does Miss Martian live?
3. In the Cave.
Hey, Greg, if this has been asked before, I apologize, but I was wondering, if you were to start up Gargoyles again, how do you think would be the best way to do so?
You've said yourself that The Goliath Chronicles isn't canon, so starting where you left off (before The Goliath Chronicles, and the end of Hunter's Moon, I believe) might leave a bit of confusion in the franchise. The series is also relatively old, a 90s series from what I know of, so there lies route to restarting it from scratch.
This has been asked before... so check the archives.
While I'm going down memory lane, I wanted to tell you my first impression of Macbeth. I don't know if you intended to use skillful misdirection, but when Macbeth first came on the show, I just thought he was a regular, albeit really athletic, guy whose shtick was call himself "Macbeth." Like how Batman villain Maxie Zeus dresses up like Zeus or the Mad Hatter who models himself on an Alice in Wonderland character. When Brooklyn and Lexington brought up Shakespeare's play, I was like, "That's it. He's just a big fan of the play taking it too far."
Later when I saw City of Stone, I was like "He doesn't think he's Macbeth. He is Macbeth!" Even in "Lighthouse", I still thought he was just an eccentric, especially when he used the alias Lennox Macduff.
Was I dim or should I have realized he really is Macbeth before "City of Stone?"
No, you weren't dim. We were looking for that ambiguity.
When Gargoyles first came on, I was in elementary school (4th grade), but I knew who the main actors on Gargoyles were and I knew a lot of them were in Star Trek. When I went to see Star Trek: First Contact in 5th grade, (that's how I "reckon time" as Titania would say) I noticed that Jonathan Frakes was the director and I knew he was one of the stars, along with Marina Sirtis. I don't think I knew at the time that Michael Dorn or Brent Spiner were Gargoyles/Star Trek actors, but let's move on.
Right about the time ST:FC came out, it was about the time The World Tour episodes were on TV and I noticed that Demona and Xanatos were in less episodes. I wondered then if Frakes and Sirtis' commitment to that film was one of the reasons for the World Tour episodes, since their availability might have decreased.
I know now from reading the archives that the in show reason was to open up the Gargoyles Universe, but my inner child still wants to know if his theory has any weight.
Nope, no weight. We didn't base our creative decisions on actor availability.
I strongly support Young Justice and am eagerly awaiting more. I just have a small question which I hope is not too imposing and I don't mind if you are unable to answer. The cast you have chosen are beautiful and seem to be very promising simply from the first two episodes, I just have one question that is important to me and as a very big fan of alot of female super heroines with Black Canary actually being my third most loved(just as a sidenote) I would just like to ask if the main cast of characters will include a couple more girls as prominent regulars, as you have stated before that the main cast will expand, because honestly I love Miss Martian and Artemis and would love to see a few more prominent girls on the team. This is by no means a dig at any of the boys and nothing to do with inequality or what not I just simply have an affinity to the ladies of DC.
Thankyou for your time and I look forward to your response.
I love Young Justice so far. The first two episodes were great. But I do have a question.
What made you decide to make Aqualad the leader instead of Robin?
Hopefully by now, you've seen episode 4 and it's all clear...
