Some new characters were revealed on Playing Cards given out at comicon, can we take this as confirmation they'll be on the show?
Dear Mr. Weisman,
I just have a few questions regarding Mars in Young Justice.
1.) What is the average lifespan of a Martian?
2a.) Is there any form of diplomatic representation between Earth and Mars?
2b.) If so, do the actions of the Martian Manhunter cause any problems?
Now for some questions not revolving around Mars.
3.) Are there other superhero groups active in the Earth-16?
4.) Following the Infinite Crisis and 52 crossovers, Earth-1 featured the Freedom of Power treaty, barring the intervention of foreign metahumans in the signatory nations. Does there exist something similar in Young Justice that factored into the decision to form "The Team" or did it have more to do with concerns about public reaction towards the Justice League engaging in these kinds of missions?
Thank you for your time and consideration.
1. About 200 Earth years.
2a. Not at the moment.
2b. In what sense?
3. SPOILER REQUEST. NO COMMENT.
First of all let me express how happy I am that the show is back. Young Justice has been my favorite since the day it aired. It's awesome.
I am asuming that when this question is answered Humanity will already have aired so this won't be a spoiler anymore(or a question and in that case sorry for taking your time) so, how old is Zatanna in Earth-156?
I don't know about Earth-156, but on Earth-16, she's fourteen.
I'd like to start off by saying I am a huge fan of your work, especially Gargoyles, and I have lately gotten into Young Justice thanks to my four year old(soon to be five) nephew asking to watch it one day while going through the cartoons OnDemand. I was pleasantly surprised to see your name, and definitely was not surprised by the quality of the writing. I really like this show, even though I've always been more of a Marvel girl(with the exception of Batman, who imo is the most awesome super-hero hands down, because instead of powers, he has those awesome toys)
Anyways, on the most recent episode of Young Justice, Miss Martian and Superboy go under-cover into the prison to find out what the Ice villians who were captured in the pilot were up to. There was one thing that left my scratching my head- how did they change Superboy's appearance? That was never really explained.
They dyed his hair and gave him a haircut. What more explanation do you need?
Hello Mr. Weisman. Greatly enjoying the Young Justice show, thanks for your efforts on that and the time you take answering folks' questions.
1. In "Targets", were Cheshire or Sportsmaster ever briefed on the scheme or were the assassination attempts completely serious the entire time?
2. In "Terrors" was Superman able to hear Superboy's "...that's more quality time than he's ever given me" line via his super hearing, or was he too far away?
3. For how long was Amanda Waller the warden of Belle Reve? What was her job before holding that position?
4. From whom did Black Canary learn martial arts in the Young Justice/Earth-16 universe?
1. Completely serious.
2. Distance or selective hearing could account for him not hearing it. (He can't be hearing everything at all times. One must sort, mustn't one?) But I'm not confirming or denying whether or not he heard it at all.
3. Probably Assistant Warden. Before that, I like to think she was a C.O.
4. Various friends of her mother.
Did Robin really not know the watchtower was in space? I feel (based upon nothing) that Batman would have told him.
Thanks for taking the time to answer our questions!
If you're talking about episode one, he did not know the Watchtower existed at all, let alone in space.
Hi! Sorry, I know you get a ton of comments/questions. :) I just wanted to give some positive feedback since people seem to be very rude!
I absolutely love all your work! And YJ kicks ass. I hope it never ends. Seriously, lol. If it's not a lot of trouble, tell all your co-workers they are VERY much appreciated!
I hope you have a great day!
Thank you very much. I definitely feel like the rudeness has toned WAY down with this round of questions. Knock wood.
Before I start asking questions, let me just say: big fan. Anyway...
1) We know the designations of Batman, Green Arrow, Red Tornado, Flash, Aquaman, and Martian Manhunter. Mind telling us everyone else's numbers?
2) I'm curious about your choices for the members of the Justice League. For example, why John Stewart and Hawkwoman? Is it to reference the Justice League animated series? Is there any character you put on the League simply because you were a fan?
3) How far along were you in production before the DC reboot was announced to you? And do you plan on having the reboot influence YJ season 2? (for example, new costumes?)
4) Were there any characters you really wanted to add to the series but couldn't besides Wonder Girl? And were there any you couldn't add for reasons other than legal issues (ex: Zsasz for being too violent, the Endless because Neil Gaiman doesn't like other people using them, Batwoman because she's a lesbian)?
5) Are Black Canary and Green Arrow dating, despite the age difference?
6) Finally, I know you said that if you added a gay character, you would have to be subtle and very sneaky. So, is any already introduced character gay?
1. Yes, I mind.
2a We tried to put together a League that felt classic and EXTREMELY powerful. So two Green Lanterns, two Hawks, Captains Marvel and Atom, etc. We wanted them to feel like the gods coming down from Olympus at the end of episode 102.
2b. There's no one we put on SIMPLY because I was a fan, but there's no one on the League that I'm NOT a fan of either. I love all these characters. Obviously, I have a special affinity for Captain Atom, Red Tornado, Green Arrow and Black Canary, but that's not why they were included.
3a. I don't remember, but a while.
3b. No, we were way too far along for it to have any effect at all.
4. ASKED AND ANSWERED.
5. It's not THAT big an age difference, but, yes. Their relationship will be further explored in both the series and the comic book.
6. I'm not sure "sneaky" is a word I used. But in any case, I'm not going to respond to this, for what I think are obvious reasons.
Okay, first of all I just want to say that I am a huge fan of Young Justice. My favorite episode so far would have to be "Terrors". I laughed so hard at Jr. saying, "Dude, that's your sister!".
Anyway, I have a couple questions to ask.
1. What happened to Icicle Jr. after Terrors? I mean, I know that he was put back in jail, but, what happened between him and the other prisoners?
2. Okay, please don't laugh at this question, even though it sounds stupid and possibly like I'm mocking you, because I'm not. Anyway, Does Superboy like pie? I ask this because Superman seems to like pie and... okay, next question!
3. This is another terrors question, what happened to the real Terror Twins after they were arrested?
4. As I was typing this, I realized that spell check recognized Superman as a real word, but not Superboy. Would Conner be mad at this fact?
Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions. Bye!
1. Nothing pleasant.
2. I don't even know if he's tried pie.
3. Eventually, they were taken to Belle Reve while awaiting trial.
4. Life is short.
Hi Greg! Just wanted to say that I really adored both Target and Terrors. The missions they're being put on really promote an international strike force feeling. I wasn't expecting that when Young Justice started, but I can see that Batman's quote in the beginning about them operating in a very low-profile manner wasn't an exaggeration, and I can't think of any other work quite like it.
For whatever reason, I'm also ADORING the News Report openers. You don't see much of that in other hero shows, and it really stresses the idea that their actions have fallout to others, that they're extraordinary to everyone else (which got a little diminished in Justice League for example, where you only focused on the powered people), and that there's just more going on in the world than these characters. Can't wait for more!
