Hey Greg, I noticed that the time difference between episode 8 and 9 of Youn g Justice gave Miss Martian and Superboy plenty of time to form a relationship. I at first noticed this when Miss Martian didn't blush when Superboy held her hand. And when Superboy was concerned about her safety, and that they almost kissed without hestation which most mean they kissed before. You guy will probably show what happened between Superboy and Miss martian while aqualad was in Atlantis in a comic book. But can you at least tell me if i'm right.
1.Will Aqualad be more creative when forming objects out of his water bearers like the Green Laterns Mabye creating a gatling gun.
2.I'm pretty sure we can confirm that Superboy apparantly watch comedies and that Megan copied her looks of the girl from the tv show and that her true form is yet to be revealed. I kind of like this idea because it could mean something with the Superboy and Miss Martian relationship on whether Superboy likes her who she is.
Because her true could be hideuos.
You're right about some things. Wrong about others.
1. Not really his style.
2. I don't think Superboy's watched many or any comedies.
First off, it's been enjoyable reading through your little Q&A's, second off, this little series youâre producing, Young Justice, is incredible. Only nine episodes in and itâs done so much for me, it was really what I needed to finally take a leap into reading comics.
My question is more or less about your personal opinion and how you see your characters rather thanâ¦ what the heck is going to happen. Ha-ha, I think I can wait, save my questions until the first season is out of the way.
Fans have a tendency to sprinkle series with homosexuality, sometimes because it seems like something that could be âin-characterâ, other times because they think itâs something that looks âgoodâ. This has recently been the case with Young Justice, so, I wanted to ask, how do you feel about this? No so much on the level of right verse wrong, but more on level of your general opinion. Is there any character that you can potentially see as homo-, bi-, or âpanâ-sexual in the main cast? Why? Why not?
â¦ Considering the ages of the characters, ha-ha, this is probably a warped question.
Youâre probably asking yourself âdoes this even matter?â
I think of all characters in sexual terms. Not exclusively, of course, but to fully get a character, you need to think about everything major about him, her (or it). And sexuality is too big to ignore, even if it's not directly addressed on screen. And that's particularly true of teenagers.
Having said that, it also wouldn't be too wise of me to express my opinions on such matters with regards to characters in an on-going, in progress series that is owned by a big multi-division corporation.
So, in short, I think it does matter. But I'm not putting anything in writing, I'm afraid. Not at this time.
As for the fans, I say, "Knock yourselves out!"
I have been reading the Captain Atom series and have to say great job for both you and Cary. I absolutely love it. The character is amazing when it comes to Captain Atom's powers and how he handles situations. I do have a few questions though:
1. Why hasn't the series been picked back up?
2. Did you help create the superhero himself? If so, what exactly?
3. Why has Captain Atom been featured in crossovers even though his comic has been cancelled?
4. Do you think Captain Atom would become more known if his series came back?
1. Ask DC. I've offered to do it.
2. Create him? No. Captain Atom was originally a Charlton character that DC purchased along with Blue Beetle, Peacemaker, Nightshade, Peter Cannon, Sarge Steel and the Question. But Cary, myself and artist Pat Broderick redeveloped the character for the DC Universe under the supervision of editor Denny O'Neil.
3. You'd have to ask DC.
4. Well... yeah, of course.
You can watch for a bit more Captain Atom in the new Young Justice companion comic, starting in issue #9.
what can you tell us about Artemis' eyes cause I've been confused about them for awhile them whether they're brown or blue and since I've watched Bereft a million times because I recorded it I think her eyes were brown when Superboy was trashing the tanks and dark blue when she and KF were discussing the ninja boyfriend thing...
and seriously loved loved this episode; current favorite! I could've cried when it ended especialy since there won't be any new episodes for awhile
"ASKED AND ANSWERED."
Hi, loving Young Justice (though I'm still a little sadden that getting this cool show involved the cancellation of the best Spider-Man Adaption EVER! anyway...).
I have three questions (sorry if they've already been asked)
1. was Jay Garrick a member of the justice Society on Earth-16?
2. how old is Jay Garrick?
3. and in what years was the Justice Society active on Earth-16? (I'm presuming it was during WWII).
thanks for your time.
oh, and if you answer "No Comment" I'm going to assume that means "all of this will be answered one way or another at some future point on the show" if that's the case, sorry for wasting your time.
3. 1940-1951. Though from 1941-1945, the Society expanded to become the wartime All-Star Squadron.
my question is in the comics jackson hydes love interest is aquagirl but its lorena vasquez.yet in young justice its tula.i was supprised(yet not dissapointed) at this.im not asking if we will ever see lorena,but why was there a switch up in love interests,though kaldur and jackson have alot of other differences,i was just wondering.
also i was wondering how long the mid season hiatus would be because without yj i might commit suicide (joking)?
finally will there be a yj trading card game?
1. Kaldur was created before Jackson. Our plans never changed. But since Tula is long dead in the comics, one can see why that pairing didn't work for the folks at DC.
2. Don't know.
3. Don't know.
A question about Young Justice,does Black Manta know that Kaldur is his son? There was was a hint during the fight scene in "Downtime" but I'am not sure.
Why are we having a repeat of young justice for two weeks?? It makes me sad :(
Scheduling is not my department.
1.In the episode Bereft why did that sphere thing help Superboy?
2.Will you tell me about the relationship between Superboy and Miss Martian?
3.Are Superboy and Miss Martian going to kiss in Young Justice?
1. They bonded over being tortured together.
2. What needs telling?
3. "SPOILER REQUEST. NO RESPONSE."
1) Is the sphere suppose to be the Super-Cycle from Peter David's run of YJ?
If yes, is the Supercycle, which had some sort of animal like intelligence in the comic, suppose to be the last of the YJ ongoing cast to be introduced?
2) Is this version of the Queen Bee human or alien?
1. "SPOILER REQUEST. NO RESPONSE."
1a. "SPOILER REQUEST. NO RESPONSE."
Will there be more shirtless Superboy scenes? Please say yes. :)
"SPOILER REQUEST. NO RESPONSE."
I just finished watching "Bereft". Another great episode by the way.
1. But when Miss Martian restores Superboy's memory there is a flash of her as a human in a cheerleading uniform. I've seen every episode of the season so far, and that never happened. So I was just wondering if there is an explination for Superboy remembering something that hasnt happened, or if there was something I missed?
2. When Kid Flash falls into the pool in the episode "Infiltrator" the side of the pool says "3.0m" or three meters. Was this intentional, or is it simply because the country that handles the animation uses the metrix system? (Just thought I'd ask cause I wasn't sure if I was the only person who noticed)
1. <sigh> And we were doing so well... "ASKED AND ANSWERED."
2. Well, I didn't notice. Or at least I didn't focus on it.
Okay, this was what J. Michael Straczynski coined "a wham episode." At first glance, the entire cast getting amnesia is an old idea, but we got perhaps my favorite single episode of the series to date out of it. Revelations and teases ran wild in this episode.
Let's start with Artemis. It's safe to say that her father is a supervillain. And she was training under him relatively recently. In fact, she immediately assumed she was supposed to kill Wally. This certainly makes her more ominous, especially after her tense conversation with Cheshire in "Infiltrator." So what are Artemis and her mother doing living in a low rent apartment in Gotham when daddy is a supervillain, and Cheshire is a member of the League of Shadows? Curious.
And while I'm on the subject of Artemis, I absolutely love that when Wally doesn't remember her, or his biases against her, he hits on her. Often.
We also learn a lot about Miss Martian. I theorized last week that she learned about Earth from watching sitcoms, and it looks like I was right. Beyond that, she seems to have taken her human name, and her human appearance from a sitcom called "Hello Megan." And what seemed for weeks like a very, very, very annoying line and quirk is suddenly a plot point. It also lines up with Martian Manhunter learning about humans from watching cop shows. Although I am beginning to wonder if she actually is J'onn's niece.
But that lines up with something I've been enjoying about this show. In most team shows like this, only one character has a big secret that is damaging to the team. In "Justice League" it was Hawkgirl. In "Wolverine and the X-Men" it was Emma Frost. In "Young Justice" there may be more than one. Artemis has her secrets. There are definitely secrets about Superboy. Miss Martian seems to have her secrets. So far, Robin, Kid Flash, and Aqualad seem to be on the level. The only secret Robin seems to have is his secret identity.
So, in this episode, the team is assigned by Batman to locate alien technology that appeared in Bialya. Bialya is a rogue state ruled by a dictator calling herself Queen Bee. Well, she must be ruthless and dangerous to be a woman who has managed to rise to power in Africa or the Middle East. On that note, I find the timing of this episode's broadcast hilarious considering that Bialya is a near-anagram for Libya, especially considering the revolution that's taking place over there, which we all hope will be result in the toppling of Muammar Gaddafi's regime. But, I suspect Queen Bee will be far more than Muammar Gaddafi with boobs. But I'll get back to her in a moment.
Psimon made for a fun and creepy villain. I loved the psionic battle between him and Miss Martian. I love how this show makes minor villains feel like a dangerous threat. It happened with Lord Kobra and Sportsmaster. It happened with Black Manta and Professor Ivo. Now Psimon.
Of course, at the end, he reports to the Light. Specifically, he reports to L-4, voiced by Demona herself, Marina Sirtis. Hmm... Marina said a year ago that she was playing Queen Bee on this show. Queen Bee was mentioned by Batman as the ruler of Bialya, and now we hear Marina's voice behind a Light silhouette. Yeah, I think it's safe to say we've got definite confirmation on L-4's identity. Nice to see Marina Sirtis isn't being wasted on a one-shot villain, but being used as one of the Big Bads.
But the real surprise was the ending. Was that a Boom Tube? L-4 mentioned a new partner, and his delivery system. Alien technology was being delivered to the Light through this Boom Tube. I think it's more than safe to say that the Light has allied itself with Darkseid. The stakes have just risen exponentially.
Yes, a definite wham episode.
I'm not sure how you're defining "minor villain"...
When I said "Should they consider making another Buzz Lightyear movie?" in the last question, I wasn't referring to Toy Story 3. I actually meant "In your opinion, do you think Tad Stones, Bob Schooley and Mark McCorkle should consider reuniting and make another DTV Buzz Lightyear of Star Command movie?" Sorry if I didn't asked the last question clearly. BTW I still remembered The Adventure Begins movie.
I'm fairly sure it's not up to Tad, Bob and Mark, but of course, it's not for me to speak for them.
Since Starro couldn't have fought JL because he was just recently dicovered what was the reason that JL was formed or will it be shown on the show?
It will eventually be revealed. (But when was Starro ever the reason the League formed?)
i really just wanted to thank you for not spoiling every single detail of what you and your team have spent so much time creating. i like the way things have played out so far and i look forward to seeing what's in store for us viewers. one of the things i personally enjoy the most is how each week i find things i do and do not like about each of the show's main characters. i feel it's much more realistic to see them grow and change during the course of the series. i really admire that quality about this show. thanks again. :]
1.What can you tell me about the relationship between Superboy and Miss Martian?
2.In the episode Bereft when Miss Martian was restoring Superboy's memory's in one of the images she was in a cheerleader uniform in a place that looked like the locker room of a school. Where did Superboy get that image from?
2b.Was it a dream Superboy had about her?
3.Why does Miss Martian like Superboy?
1. I think it mostly speaks for itself. Or will, as episodes air.
2. That was from her memory. They were melding, as she removed the blockage that Psimon had placed there.
3. Beyond what I've already said, I'll leave that for the viewer to interpret.
I'm really intrigued by the budding relationship between Miss Martian and Superboy. Their attraction to each other seemed pretty immediate, particularly from Megan's end. Is it merely physical? Or do you think these two have a deeper connection they haven't quite figured out yet? In any case, can you please give us a little more insight on what compelled you guys to pair these two particular characters together?
I think it began with a physical attraction, but I believe it's deepened since.
As for why, it felt right, and some of the why will become clearer as the season progresses...
I've been stalking you...err.. I mean.. I've been stalking your work ever since Gargoyles (which clearly, in my opinion, was an excellent series - it had lots of little writing and directing type decisions that I always appreciate in a show.. the key of which being continuity to plot, previous episodes, character actions/decisions, etc all staying true to how it's been developing/evolving.).
Heck, I come to ask greg on a weekly basis just to see what sort of neat little insights get tossed around in your answers regarding various projects you've been involved in.
And these days I find myself enjoying YJ as one of the more quality shows (animated or otherwise) that's on right now. It's fun not just seeing what happens, but how and why it happens, and then the story/character evolution that happens thereafter.
So I just wanted to take a moment and (on behalf of myself and anyone else who thinks like me) say thanks for another quality show!!
((Sorry, I don't have a question. I know you so desperately wanted on. But, alas, this is just a compliment and thanks, so you'll have to deal with it :) ))
Hey, I'll take praise anywhere I can get it. Thanks.
Dear Mr. Weisman, my question is simple, are you doing, or are planing to do more work on gargoyles comics?
If given the opportunity. I need a publisher who has the license from Disney.
Hey Greg, I have been enjoying "Young Justice so far. The Light (who are Project Cadmus' Board of Directors) seem to be the main villains so far orchestrating some of the villains on their side to carry out missions for their research. When on Cartoon Network Video and/or your recent responses, they had revealed the voice actors for the as-yet-unidentified members of the Light. It was stated by both you and the credits that Miguel Ferrer voices L-1, Oded Fehr voices L-2, Mark Rolston voices L-3, Roger Craig Smith voices L-5, and Nolan North voices L-6. That leaves the voice work for L-4 and L-7 in the upcoming episodes. One of the latter two sounded like a female when Psimon was reporting to them at the end of "Bereft."
In "Downtime," the beginning of the episode featured a simulation between Young Justice and Clayface with Batman jumping in to taser Clayface. Unfortunately, it wasn't stated which version of Clayface was used. I don't think it's the 3rd Clayface or the 4th Clayface. Do you know which version it was?
I recall that in the comics, Superman's DNA wasn't the only DNA used to create Superboy. It was mentioned that the other person whose DNA was used to create Superboy was Lex Luthor. Will there be any mentionings and/or discoveries of this in later episodes?
L-4 is Marina Sirtis.
That wasn't a simulation with Clayface. That was an actual battle. And it's Hagen.
Okay, I just want to say that I never watched Gargoyles as a kid. I was a baby when it came out so I never even heard about it until I was a teenager. But after hearing about it, I wanted to watch it right away. Eventually I became a huge fan and devoured the entire first two seasons in a relatively short period of time. Afetr watching the first episode of Young Justice, I was hooked, and then I found out that who was working on it but none other than Greg Weisman himself, creator of the series I fell in love with not a month prior. I honestly love Young Justice, the darkness, the way it takes it's audience seriously even though they're children and don't try to dumb things down or make everybody speak english even though they're foreign.I love the characters and really get a kick out of seeing them interact with one another and I absolutely love the acting. I have just one problem with the show. "Hello Megan!"...I hate this. Despite other annoying bits that I can ignore, this makes me absolutely HATE Megan. I realized after thinking about it that I really do like things about her personality and she's smart and useful, and she and Superboy are cute together so I don't have a problem with that. It's just that ONE thing that makes me hate her and hope she's the one that dies this season. If it were not for that little quirk she has, I would probably love her, but everytime she does something cool and I think "She's not so bad", she just HAS to say it and kill my respect for her all over again. Just, please, I know you're not the overlord of the writing staff,(Then again, what do I know? For all I know you could be the supreme ruler of penguins and I would be none the wiser.)but can you PLEASE realize how much this one little sentance fragment makes my sister(and fellow fan) and I become filled with rage towards this otherwise sweet girl. I really don't like that I hate such a nice character but whenever she opens her mouth and spews out that catch phrase, I just can't help it.
Actually, I am pretty much the "overlord of the writing staff". ;)
But (a) all the scripts are already written and recorded, so it's too late and (b) I flat out don't care that you don't like it. I like it. Some fans agree with me. Some fans agree with you. But "WE LIKE OUR SHOW." And we have our reasons for it being there.
And now - I'm DONE TALKING ABOUT THIS. I've gotten the message. I'VE GOTTEN THE MESSAGE! A very vocal group of fans hate the catch phrase. I don't. And I'm not going to suddenly change my mind about this. And -- even if I did -- it's TOO LATE TO CHANGE THINGS. Beating me up about it won't help you and will only annoy me. (I mean, did you really not see that like 20 people had addressed this ahead of you?)
So live with it or don't. I'm not asking you to like it. But stop asking me to respond to any critique of it.
"ASKED AND ANSWERED."

"ASKED AND ANSWERED."
First off, I LOVED "Bereft"; probably my favorite episode so far. I have to give a special thanks for the innuendos and whatnot, I was scared this show would get castrated by censors or something.
Anyway, I happened to notice that when M'gann restored Superboy's memory, she conveniently left out the part where he hates telepathy and having other people in his head, which was biggest mental obstacle between them. To make this even more disconcerting is that Superboy will never know it because he only remembers what she wants him to.
So... will this ever be addressed? M'gann has so much potential as a character since we now see she bases herself completely off of a television cheerleader. The implications are interesting, since we all know that people in tv are unrealistic and wouldn't exist in real life. Will M'gann ever learn to become her own person?
Please. It's NOT like you saw EVERY IMAGE from Superboy's memory. So why assume that just because we didn't show THAT scene that it wasn't restored.
Besides, you seem to be assuming that she PUT those memories back in his head. She didn't. She just removed the blockage that Psimon had put in. Memories came flooding back for both of them, and that's what you saw. But again, we'd have been there for hours if we showed ALL his memories.
Don't twist things to make this nefarious.
As for M'gann - "SPOILER REQUEST. NO COMMENT."
Which episode is timedancer?
I don't understand the question. Check the FAQ. That might help clarify things for you, and if you're still unclear than you can repost the question offering more clarity for me.
I was just wondering, how does the team feel about Robin keeping his identity secret from them even though they are open about theirs? And how does Robin feel about keeping it from them? Also, does Wally know Robin's identity? I just got that vibe that he knows, plus Robin was okay with mentioning that the Amazo parts were heading towards his school to him in "Schooled".
1. I think they're fine with it generally.
2. Basically fine. It's like a game to him, mostly.
