Hi, I love Young Justice, wanted to ask..
1. How do they recruit members for "the team" are there specific standards they hold them to, and if so do they vote like the JL?
2. How many members/past members of the team are LGBTQ if so which ones
3. Are there any costumes you hate or any costumes you wish could be different
1. I don't want to lock anything in on this page, but you've seen the basics in the show and our companion comic. If an underage hero can't be dissuaded from their activities, then someone (over 18) from the League or the Team speaks to the young hero's legal Guardian. Then, assuming they get permission, they approach the hero with an offer. For the covert Team, there's less voting involved, I believe. This is a needed service to young but determined heroes.
2. No spoilers.
3. Brandon and I approve everything. If you saw it on the show, we approved it. I didn't love Deathstroke's second season ponytail, to be honest, but was willing to give it a shot. I also wasn't too fond of Superboy's "Members Only" style jacket back in Season One. But I didn't feel too strongly, or I would have said something. Still, you'll notice we don't use it much anymore.
Q1) If someone was involuntarily turned into an animal for a period of time and it wasn't immediately reversible and they needed to use a Zeta Tube - would they be given a C designation while transformed into an animal? Or would the animal form use the untransformed designation?
Q3) Are Tim Drake and Dinah Drake (Lance) related? I'm assuming no, but you've adjusted other character relations, so worth asking.
Q4) With Helga back in Markovia, is anyone acting as Den Mother in the Outsider's penthouse? No need to name names, a yes or no will do.
Q5) Since you have Batwoman as starting in Team Year 6, is one of the reasons she became Batwoman because Batman was unavailable to fight crime in Gotham due to being on trial in space?
1. There's so much hypothetical thinking in this question, it's impossible to answer. But if this helps, Beast Boy's designation does not change to a C-Designation if he's in animal form. It's not like the computer can only transport animals if they have a C-Designation or vice versa.
2. There was no Q2 for some reason.
3. No spoilers.
4. By now, I assume you've seen that Blue Devil is den mother.
5. No spoilers.
A lot of Beast Boy trauma all began with Queen Bee- killed his mother, and took over his childhood home. From joining the Doom Patrol-The Team- becoming Meta-Human Advocate/Celebrity Actor- and now leader of the Outsiders. Aside from his inspiration to bring justice to the world, is there any personal motivation for bringing justice to Queen Bee for her crimes that motivated Gar to become a hero.
I'll leave that to your interpretation, for now.
Why did Black Manta want to destroy the Earth-Mars communications satellite?
How did Dick get Zatanna to design the Glamour Charm?
1. Isolating Earth from Mars and vice versa was - at least at the time - in the Light's best interest.
2. Just like he said in the episode, he asked her, and she said yes. They have a history. She trusts him.
How difficult is it to create a completely new character for a show based on someone else's intellectual property? Was it hard to get approval for Green Beetle?
1. It hasn't been an issue on YJ. We do it very infrequently, frankly, because there are SO MANY, MANY, MANY existing DC characters that we always lean toward adapting an existing one over creating a new one. But if we have a specific need - and we can't find a character to fit that need, we won't hesitate.
2. Not hard at all.
1) I'm really amazed that Artemis has a genuine interest in literature! She always struck me as the kind of person who would rather kick ass than engage in solitary intellectual pursuits. In season one, she shows little interest in reading. She was enrolled in comparative literature in season 2, but that is a major young people often choose when they have no idea what they want to do with their lives.
1) Was Artemis being a reader something that you had imagined pre-season one or is it something that developed over time?
2) Who are Artemis' five favourite living writers? Of any genre?
3) Who are Artemis' five favourite dead/historical writers? Of any genre?
4) Does Artemis dislike Milton? (I ask because I see him as being too elitist for Artemis' personality.)
5) Does Artemis have a specific field or era of interest? The field of comparative literature is rather large.
1. I find it more telling about you that you are "really amazed Artemis has a genuine interest in literature!" You saw nothing in S1 that justifies the statement "she shows little interest," which implies somehow that we showed other characters showing much interests, which of course, we didn't. There just wasn't the screen time for it. So really what you should be saying is that we showed nothing at all about Artemis' academic interests, which is a fair statement. And again, I find your statement that Comparative Literature is a major chosen by people who have no idea what to do with their lives very judgmental. I majored in English, myself. I'm sure some English majors weren't sure what they were going to do with their lives, but others like myself, did. (I wanted to be a writer, in case that wasn't obvious. I also briefly flirted with the idea of being a professor but decided against it.)
2. I think we always thought she was a reader. But we always thought ALL of our characters were readers. In terms of her specific long-term secret identity career interests, pre-S1 we didn't have that planned out for anyone except Kaldur. But Brandon and I both believed that the Comp Lit track felt right and matched up what we knew about Artemis' character.
3. I'm not playing this game.
4. I like Milton. Not sure why she wouldn't. But I haven't put too much thought into her thoughts on this one specific writer.
5. Her dissertation, which she's still working on as of S4, is on Vietnamese literature and its resonance (or lack thereof) with archetypes in Western Culture. But her interests are wider.
Will Beast Boys bio suit eventually want to leave like the bio ship? Will his clothes just decide to leave in the middle of a fight?
No. The bio-suits are more like plants than animals. They have less of what we would call sentience or sapience. Fair question, though.
Hi Greg, I love YJ and have been watching since it first aired on CN, my question is, why did The Reach only abduct teens and no adults? Wouldnât people be less likely to notice or look for missing adults than teens? Thanks even if you canât answer!
Teen runaways tend to have fewer connections to the world. They are traditionally more vulnerable. This is true with human-trafficking, which meta-human-trafficking was designed to be a metaphor for.
In addition, within the world of the show, an activated meta-human is of more use (and likely to have a longer shelf-life) if it starts out on the younger side.
why has kaldur always been a pretty emotionless character in YJ was this always apart of his arc?
I don't think of him as emotionless at all. I do think of him as stoic. He doesn't reveal as much as some others do. At least not on the surface. He does keep a tighter rein then his fellow heroes.
I don't know that I'd say it's part of his "arc," but it is part of his character. Stay tuned for more in the second half of Season Four, which premieres on March 31st, 2022.
One of my favorite things about YJ is the way Batman was portrayed in S1. I loved how he was a father figure and a mentor - we rarely get to see that side of him in DC media. We didn't see him much in S2, but I felt like he was emotionally closed off when saying bye to his kids before leaving for Rimbor. And by S3, he feels very cold and distant - especially in the way he talked to Tim in Triptych. I'm wondering if this was a deliberate character choice or if this is just the result of the show changing focus after S1?
Mostly, the latter. He just isn't as important to the plotline after S1, and many, many characters are battling it out for screen time.
But I also don't really agree with your assessment (though of course you're entitled to your interpretation). I think Batman is a great father figure and mentor. We've tried to show that consistently in every season, to the extent we've had room for the character (which, again, differs from season to season). He's always used a version of tough love, both with his own proteges and with the Team. And I think that's how we portrayed him in both Invasion and Outsiders.
In the Young Justice Wiki, Gretchen Goode's designation in The Light was confirmed to be L-11. But you've recently said in a response posting that this is now Ultra-Humanite's designation in The Light. Is this actually true, or is Ultra-Humanite's designation is supposed to be L-12 and Zviad Baazovi's designation is supposed to be L-13? The next question I want to ask is why The Brain is no longer a member of The Light? Finally, my last question is why was Black Manta expelled from the Light?
1. The first thing to keep in mind is that the L-Designations for the Light aren't really in-Universe. We needed something to identify members of the Light in the credits during Season One before we revealed their identities. The fans latched onto them, understandably, but I haven't quite tracked them in the same way that I've tracked the heroes' designations. Then there was that goody bag created for SDCC, which seemed to enshrine the L-Designations and/or etch them in stone. But I'm not even certain they were correct on that bag. (I have it in storage somewhere, but I can't get to it this minute.) So let's try to work 'em all out now:
L-1 Vandal Savage
L-2 Ra's al Ghul
L-3 Lex Luthor
L-4 Queen Bee
L-6 The Brain
L-8 Black Manta (replacing Ocean-Master)
L-9-11 Deathstroke (replacing Ra's al Ghul)
L-9-11 Ultra-Humanite (replacing The Brain
L-9-11 Gretchen Goode (replacing Black Manta))
L-12 Zviad Baazovi (replacing Gretchen Goode)
The obvious problem is that Deathstroke, Ultra-Humanite and Gretchen all joined at approximately the same time. And since there's no in-universe L-Designation, any of the three could be L-9, L-10 or L-11 - though Zviad is clearly L-12. I gather from the YJ Wiki that the San Diego bag assigned Deathstroke as L-9 and Gretchen as L-11, but that Ultra-Humanite's L-11 came from a somewhat half-hearted answer here at ASK GREG. So let's, for the hell of it, correct that answer, and make Ultra-Humanite L-10. Cool? So, now...
L-1 Vandal Savage
L-2 Ra's al Ghul
L-3 Lex Luthor
L-4 Queen Bee
L-6 The Brain
L-8 Black Manta (replacing Ocean-Master)
L-9 Deathstroke (replacing Ra's al Ghul)
L-10 Ultra-Humanite (replacing The Brain
L-11 Gretchen Goode (replacing Black Manta))
L-12 Zviad Baazovi (replacing Gretchen Goode)
2. As with Ocean-Master's "unfortunate incarceration," the Brain being in prison (especially a prison like Belle Reve) makes it difficult to serve effectively.
When did Leslie Wills become Livewire?
When did Andie become Mist?
When did Lia Briggs become Looker?
When did Tula become Aquagirl?
When did Cassandra Sandsmark become Wonder Girl?
1. Team Year Seven or Eight.
2. Team Year Seven or Eight.
3. Team Year Nine, when she joined the Outsiders.
4. Team Year One, when she joined the Team.
5. Team Year Five.
1. Was Nightwing aware of the fact that M'gann was putting people in a catatonic state before Conner told him she fried Kaldur's brain? Or was he oblivious to it.
1. Largely oblivious. To be clear, it's not like she was doing it often.
My father and I recently started watching "Young Justice" and are enjoying it greatly.
I have a few questions:
1. I love the realistic depiction of powers; I do, however, have some questions about the Martians. I am a bit confused as to why Ms. Martian doesn't telepathically blast all her enemies at various points in the show--or why she doesn't telekinetically repel or control them all, similarly to how Parasite controlled Superboy. When fighting Slade on the Manta submarine, could she not, regardless of whether or not it would be advantageous, not force him to fall asleep or smash him repeatedly against a wall?
2. On a similar note, how do Rocket's powers exactly work? Could she defeat nearly anyone in a fight by enclosing them in a bubble (Superman, Batman, etc)? Obviously, the trick is to combat her with multiple opponents.
3. Is there a character who is considered the most central to the show; and why was the cast expanded so much in subsequent seasons?
Please continue the good work.
1. I don't know how she could make him fall asleep. She could smash him against the wall repeatedly - assuming he didn't do something to stop her. He's a resourceful guy.
2. Her bubbles aren't completely impenetrable. Kinetic energy fuels them, but other types of energy can dismantle them.
3. Our original leads are central to the show. But we felt strongly that the world should keep moving. And so more characters appear all the time. (And we did quite a bit of expanding in the first season, as well. Keep in mind, we started with only three heroes: Aqualad, Robin and Kid Flash. Everyone else came after.)
1. If Roy asks Ollie to get rid of his goatee, will Ollie do it?
2. Do the members of Arrow family like the chili Ollie make?
3. Are Dinah and Babara good friends?
4. What was Green Arrow doing in Season 3, he let Arrowette work with the Bat Team but what was he doing in the season?
5. In the very first episode, why would Green Arrow tell Red Arrow (still speedy at that time) the Hall of Justice isn't the real base instead the watchtower is?
1. The question feels moot to me because why would Roy do that?
2. Um... sure.
3. I would think so.
4. He was also working with Batman's group. And doing his own thing. And successfully reconciling with Dinah.
5. Information is power. The rest I'll leave to your interpretation.
I have a couple of YJ time travel related questions that may or may not run afoul of being spoilers.
1. When Neutron changed to being healthy and not having a collar at the end of 2x06, did he get the memories that he would have had in the new reality Bart created when he asked why it didn't all change? Or will he get those memories over time?
2. Why was he there in that moment? What reason would he have for being there if him sending Bart back was no longer necessary? Or does time travel work in the sense that it only takes hold from the moment someone travelled back from?
3. Was that new future itself transitive, ie did it result from only what Bart changed so far (as of the end of 2x06) and not take in what Bart would change later in the season? Or was the destroyed Mount Justice a direct sign that it didn't, as that happened later in 2x09?
4. This will probably get no spoilers, but if its the latter from Q3 and the destroyed Mount Justice is from 2x09, then does that mean that Neutron's judgement that nothing else changed could be (not is) wrong?
5. Once again, this will likely get no spoilers, but in the future that Bart is from can we assume the Light lost somehow against the Reach?
Thanks so much
1. Because of his close-proximity exposure to Chronoton radiation, he will have to teach himself what happened. He will never truly experience the revised timeline as memories. In theory.
2. His exposure kept him there. Beyond that, I'm forced to answer No spoilers, for now.
3. It was all-encompassing within that timeline.
4. It was clearly wrong.
5. That's not a safe assumption. The Reach triumphing doesn't mean that the Light lost.
3. I don't know what this extra three was for.
Hi Greg! First of all, I love Young Justice dearly; itâs such a nostalgic show with an incredible rewatch value too. Needless to say, Iâm watching season 4 with the same interest as I did back when I was a kid. Hot me totally hooked up. But I also have 3 questions about the current season:
1. In this weekâs episode, Artemis is in the park waiting for her sis, an Â«international assassinÂ Â» and her boyfriend asks her Â«Â Oh is he a handsome international assassin?Â Â» to which she answers Â«Â Who says itâs an he?Â Â» which is followed up by his Â«Â Strangely, Iâm even more jealous nowÂ Â». Is this some kind of confirmation for a bisexual Artemis?
2. For how long did Dick live with Bruce before leaving and getting his own apartment? And does Bruce send him like... monthly support money too or something?
3. Would you say Jason Toddâs death happened before the Chalant break up or after or is it too spoilery of you to tell?
1. It's not in and of itself, no. Which is not to say she isn't bisexual. Or that she is. The answer to that is NO SPOILERS. But I do think it's a mistake to read too much into a bit of teasing suggestive dialogue between flirtatious significant others.
2. Dick lived at Wayne Manor full-time until he graduated high school. And he still has a bedroom there.
2a. Bruce set up a trust fund for Dick, which he expects Dick to manage.
3. No spoilers.
Hey Greg I'm a big fan of how the Martian race is depicted in YJ that they have a less human looking natural form, that they have less shared powers with Kryptonians and the world building for them.
1) If it's not a spoiler request when between seasons did Conner and Gar first meet M'gann's folks?
2) Did J'onn meet M'aatt before he got sent to Earth or after he first came back to Mars?
3) I couldn't help but notice how excited M'aatt looked when he spoke about building an alter with Conner. Am I right in guessing this was either the first time he got to do so or he didn't get to do this for a lot of his G'arrunn kids?
4)I'm admittedly not the most well read individual but I know enough pop culture to tell you guys drew on a lot of different inspirations for the Martian race and culture. What were the main influences?
5) Did M'gann have any other default forms between seasons before settling on the one in Phantoms?
1. Pretty soon after the end of Season Two.
3. I'm forced to answer No Spoilers to this.
4. There may have been fewer than you think, at least consciously. We made decisions back in Season One about what the Martian powers would be, what the Martian castes were and where Martians lived on Mars. As you noted, some of those decisions were made to differentiate Martians and Kryptonians. Brandon and I felt that when the Manhunter from Mars was first introduced, his species was quite distinctive. But over time - adding things like Martian vision, turning fire into his kryptonite, making him the last surviving Martian, etc. - he became a Superman knock-off. We also weren't fans of the idea that there was an entire Martian race that was just BORN EVIL!! So we made decisions that felt better for us. This season, we then extrapolated off those decisions to bring our version of M'arzz to life. I'm sure there were influences, including from DC Comics and Edgar Rice Burroughs and others, but they were less conscious for us. It was more about pushing forward on decisions we had already made.
5. No spoilers. But the answer is basically no.
Is the Vault the same place that Roy raided in "Satisfaction"?
Hello, first i'd like to say i'm a huge fan. Gargoyles, Spectacular Spider-Man and Young Justice of course lol. On the reddit Q&A someone asked if J'onn knew that M'Gann mind fried the Krolotean he was interrogating, and you answered yes. But i'd like to ask whether or not he said anything to her about what she had done afterwards? because when he left earth for his trial on rimbor all seemed well between them when they said their goodbyes.
Thanks for your time.
I think in the larger sense, all was well between them. But, yes, I think they discussed it.
Is Eduardo Dorado Jr. out to his father? If so, what team year did he come out?
2. I haven't thought about that, honestly.
1. How old is Hart?
2. How old is Hauser?
3. How old is Jeremiah?
4. How old is John Smith?
5. How old is Karen?
1. Hart was born in 1985.
2. Hauser was born in 1974.
3. Jeremiah was born in 1990.
4. I'm not sure how to answer this one. Red Tornado was first built in 1948. The android John Smith body was first constructed - as you saw - in Team Year Zero. If you're asking how old John appears to be, I suppose the answer is subject to interpretation, but I'd say about 35.
5. Which Karen? Karen Beecher and Karen Conlin were both born in 1995. Karen, the genomorph-troll was born in 2009.
1: was henry heywood high school named after a former hero?
1b: what was his codename if thats the case?
2: Did the original roy never meet his fellow sidekicks before being taken by the light? THe timeline in the young justice wiki said they all debut besides robin after he was taken
3: Why did you decide to have artemis and her family live in gotham? im pretty sure they don't have any gotham tiies in the comics.
4: Dd you decide to make artemis asian before or after you decide chesire was her sister? How did you come up with the idea of them being related?
5: Does kon-el have a meaning in krypton's langue? or is it a translation of connor?
5b: What does it mean if it does have a meaning
1. It was named after Henry Heywood.
1b. No spoilers. Although, really, you can look this up. We're not being THAT cagey.
2. As stated in the show, he had not met Robin, Aqualad or Kid Flash before he was abducted.
3. They do, actually. But mostly, that's what worked for our needs way back in Season One.
4. We combined two families, making Paula Asian, with two bi-racial daughters.
5. It does have a meaning in Kryptonian.
5b. No spoilers. That is, "Kon" means "Spoilers". "-el" means "No." Kidding, kidding.
1 Did the light pick ultra humanite because he worked with the Brain before and had similar abilities
2 Does the light currently have candidates in place if one of their members gets captured or leaves?
3 Are the heroes aware that the light knows (at least some) of the heroes secret identities
4 Do ultra humanite and deathstroke genuinely agree with the light goals or did they only join for the power and influence they would get from it
5 During young justice season 3 episode 15 when Artemis scanned task force x one of the things that was shown was that black manta was the strategist for the light. Was this an actual role he had when he was still with the light?
1. I'm sure that was all part of the equation.
2. I'm sure everyone has ideas.
3. Yes. For example, Batman is aware that Ra's knows his identity, and has to assume that the Light now knows, as well.
4. Those aren't mutually exclusive considerations.
5. Is that what it said? I don't recall that.
1:You made clear in the past how you feel about the Speed Force, what is your personal opinion on other cosmic sources of power like the Emotional Electromagnetic Spectrum, or Elemental Forces such as the Green or the Red? Obviously I am not asking about their status on Earth 16.
2:Can Beast Boy transform into animals not native to the planet he is on? As in could he turn into something like a monkey on Mars or into a Ma'alefa'ak on Earth?
1. I think it behooves me to keep my thoughts to myself. Despite your caveat, my words would inevitably be taken out of context and dispersed.
2. A monkey wouldn't survive long on M'arzz. So the answer is, yes, theoretically, but no, pragmatically. You've already seen him transform into a Ma'alefa'ak on Earth.
Is there a reason people wear the same civilian clothes every day? (I know this is for budgetary reasons for most animation but considering how much thought goes into this world, I figured I'd if there's an in-universe reason)
Are people actually wearing the same clothes every day? Or are we, the audience, just seeing a false version of their clothing? If they are wearing the same clothes every day, do they have multiple identical articles of clothing?
Regardless of all of the above, how many Superman t-shirts does Conner have? If it's just the one, how many times a week does he wash it?
If you'd read our companion comics, you'd know Conner bought many of the exact same black S-Shield t-shirt at Forever Sixteen ten years ago.
Otherwise, no. In theory, people are not wearing the exact same thing every day, sequentially. Ultimately, we just don't have the person-hours to constantly design new civilian clothes for everybody.
Was Garfield Logan at Rita's wedding to Steve and if not why not in timeline of young justice ?
Who thought of Psimon and Devastation?
Um... Psimon was the creation of Marv Wolfman and George Perez. And I just looked it up, and Devastation seems to have been created by Eric Luke. But really you don't need to ask that here. You can look that stuff up as easily as I can.
How old are Don and Dawn Allen?
Why did Chad Lowe replace his brother as the voice of Captain Marvel?
Why did the Ocean-Master attack Aquaman in the flashback in Downtime and what happened to him after he was defeated?
When did Guy Gardner join the Justice League?
1. They were born in September of Team Year Six.
2. Rob was no longer available. We offered the part to Chad. He got his brother's blessing and took over.
3. They were enemies.
3a. He got away.
4. Team Year Two.
When did David Reid become Magog?
When did Magog join the Justice League?
What was Robin doing with Batman in Insecurity?
How does Klarion know the four sorcerers in his "old band"?
1. Team Year Six.
2. Team Year Seven.
3. No spoilers.
4. Recorder Club.
Summit is easily one of my favourite episodes of Young Justice's second season, in part because it shows perhaps the single most unambiguous victory by the Team over the Light. Even Vandal Savage admits it is the biggest blow to his plans in his long lifetime.
However, now having seen Season 3, it is somewhat unclear how much of a real impact that victory actually had. The Light wanted a way to weaponise and exploit the metagene, and they got it. They got control of the Warworld. They were already (secretly) acting against the Reach, indicating that their partnership would be short-lived even without the Team's interference. Some members of the Light were apprehended, but the remaing members carried on and replaced them.
I was wondering if you could perhaps say a little about what the Light lost as a result of the Team's actions. Was there more they wanted from the Reach that they did not get?
The short answer is yes.
Hi Greg, I'm not anticipating a lot of Wonder focus this season given the arc structure, so thought this would be the best batch to try for now in a way that shouldn't spoil anything upcoming by the time things get answered.
1) Youâve said that Amazons donât age while theyâre on Themyscira before, https://www.s8.org/gargoyles/askgreg/search.php?qid=17241 would this apply to non-Amazon women who live there as well?
2) You have given a chronological and biological age for Troia, but only an unspecified (but presumably chronological) age for Diana as of S1 and for Devastation. I was curious if you would give biological ages for Diana and Devastation for the two.
3) You have stated that a part of the reason for the Amazons enhanced abilities (in general, not for the Special Ones), is partly due to the Purple Healing Ray. I was curious if it was technological or mystical in nature?
4) Themyscira is represented as an entity by the UN - but we also see that Atlantis which we know to be composed of several kingdoms/city states and described as a continent is represented as an (apparently) single seat. I was wondering if Themyscira; as represented by the UN, composed of additional islands or settles, and if so if the protection from aging extends to these islands.
Two of those sort of push the limit of being one question, so I'll refrain from asking a fifth. I find the differences that exist within Earth-16s portrayal of its entities (even those not in focus) to be fascinating and was just hoping for a few additional details that I don't think would constitute a spoiler so much as logistics. Thankyou very much for a beautiful world beyond the show.
1. No spoilers.
2. At the start of Team Year Ten, Diana is biologically 39 (more or less).
2a. At the start of Team Year, Devastation is biologically 28 (more or less).
3. Have I? Well, in any case, No spoilers.
4. No spoilers.
So, just because we're not likely to get to something this season, doesn't mean the questions aren't still spoiler requests.
1. When did Barbara Gordon debut as Batgirl?
2. When did Karen Beecher debut as Bumblebee?
3. When did La'gaan debut as Lagoon Boy?
4. When did Garfield Logan debut as Beast Boy?
I really feel like I've answered at least some of these before, but...
1. Team Year Three.
2. Team Year Four.
3. Team Year Four.
4. Team Year Two.
1. When did Batgirl join the Team?
2. When did Bumblebee join the Team?
3. When did Lagoon Boy join the Team?
4. When did Beast Boy join the Team?
1. Team Year Four.
2. Team Year Four.
3. Team Year Four.
4. Team Year Five.
We know Barbara was in love Dick since se was 13 or maybe even before lol.
But when did Dick feel in love with Barbara?
I mean probably not in season 1 since he only had eyes for Zatanna at that time.
And not in season 2 neither since he barely had any interaction with Barbara in that season.
So I guess it was during the 2 years time skip between season 2 and season 3.
Am I right ?
We didn't show you much downtime for either Barbara or Dick in Season Two. (I mean you literally didn't get to see Dick out of his Nightwing costume at all, right?) So I wouldn't take too much for granted.
Beyond that, the obvious answer to your question is... NO SPOILERS.
During the times Rita did not let Garfield go on missions with doom patrol did he stay by himself or was he with most of the times with Miss Martian ?
It depends. He definitely visited M'gann/Megan. But some missions take days. Others take an hour.
Was Eddie Corliss the kid with a mouche among the kidnapped teens in "Before the Dawn"?
Was Stephanie captured by the Reach because she ran away from her villainous father?
1. I'm not sure what a mouche is in this context, but no. Eddie was in Violet, Fred and Harper's class at Happy Harbor High.
Will was wearing his Red Arrow costume in episode 5 of Phantoms. Was that a one time thing again like in "Private Security" or is he fully back as RA?
Occasionally, he's back as Red Arrow. But not often.
1: Is Zviad Baazovi from markovia? He was a soviet originally in the comics.
2: How many lords of chaos and order are there usually at a time?
3: Why did Wonder Woman return to man's world after returning home following world war 2?
4: Was John smith/red tornado Connor's legal guardian? I remember seeing that here but i couldn't find it in the archives
4b: Did anyone else took over for torando like ma and pa kent?
5: If Tornado was Connor's legal guardian, does Connor view as a father and by extension Traya as a sister?
1. He's Markovian in YJ.
2. I've never counted.
3. No spoilers.
4. I seem to recall that as well.
4b. Eventually, yes.
5. They're not quite that close. But they are fairly close.
FYI, Conner is spelled with an o and an e.
1. Is Roy Harper a descendant of Vandal Savage in YJ?
2. Does the Light still have the remains of his right arm?
3. Does Roy have a favourite clone?
4. Has he forgiven Ollie for leaving him on ice for 8 years?
5. Does Roy still use his bow and arrow?
1. No spoilers.
2. No spoilers.
3. Do you mean does he prefer Jim to Will or vice versa? Well, if he does, I'm sure he's not going to tell anyone that. He's not that insensitive.
4. Most days, yes.
5. He thinks of himself as a living arsenal, so he'll use whatever weapon is convenient for the moment. But a bow and quiver are bulky items, so they aren't a part of his regular weaponry.
1. Does Barbara know that Dick and Zee were together ?
2. If the answer to the first question is yes, how did she react when she learned it ?
3. Had Dick ever sleep with Zee ?
4. Are you ever going to give us a reason to why did Dick and Zee broke up ? Because the majority of the fandom has been wondering it since season 2 .
Hope youâre doing well and thanks for your time and answers.
1. Yes. That's clear in issue #20 of the comic.
2. No spoilers.
3. No spoilers.
4. Ever? Sure. Given enough episodes or issues or whatever. Eventually.
1. When did Barbara joined the Team ?
2. When she joined, were Dick and Zatanna still together ?
3. Did Barbara and Zatanna already happened to team up ( like just the two of them ) ?
4. How did Zatanna and Barbara meet ?
5. Would you say that they (Zatanna and Barbara) are good friends, very good friends or just friends ?
1. I feel like I've answered this before, but okay: Team Year Four.
2. No spoilers.
3. No spoilers.
4. No spoilers.
5. I'll leave that to your interpretation.
Why was Ted Kord's memorial hologram in the Cave Grotto rather than on the Watchtower?
At the time, there was no memorial grotto in the Watchtower. That changed after Mount Justice was destroyed.
Hey man been a big fan of Young Justice since high school and spent a nice chunk of those teenager years helping build the wiki and I just want to say thanks for helping me find a passion in storytelling and Iâm curious to see where you take the story and Iâm happy itâs back.
My question is: Do Roy and Jim consider Lian as a niece (considering theyâve meet her at all) since the Harper trio essentially have a brotherly relationship with each other?
They absolutely do. And she sees them as her uncles.
1: Was Barbara Gordan named after her mother or did her mom have a different name?
2: Was Mist's father a villain named mist too?
3: Is Luis Garcia a character from the comics?
4: Did the other Babylon/Mesopotamian gods exist as Vandal's children?
5: Does Vandal all ways kill his elderly children?
1. No spoilers.
2. No spoilers.
3. Yes. Although he may be something of a composite.
4. No spoilers.
5. Not necessarily.
1: What year was Orm sent to prison in Atlantis?
2: Does the atlantean family have a surename or house name?
3: Do atlanteans not usually have last names?
4:What city is Tula from?
5: What year did FIre debut as a hero? Was she a teenager like Ice?
1. Well, we know he wasn't in prison in September of Team Year Zero. We know he served six years. We know he was out of prison by September of Team Year Eight. So that puts the start of his prison stay between September of Team Year Zero and September of Team Year Two.
2. If you mean Orin and Orm, no. Orin sometimes uses Curry.
3. Some do, some don't.
5. Beatriz da Costa debuted as a hero in Team Year Six. She may have just barely been a teen when she debuted, as I haven't set a specific date of birth for her. But she was twenty years old by the end of that year.
Hi this is just confirmation for the YJ wiki but Bart Allen/Impulse was A014 right? And I was wondering if there was any discontinued designations that current individuals affiliated with our heroes have that you could confirm since it is implausible that they will be revealed naturally if that makes sense? I agree that having it revealed naturally is the best way so just trying to get the ones that don't have a real chance to get revealed if that makes sense?
Bart was A-14. (There's no zero in there.)
I basically agree with you. If a designation is outdated - or as you put it "discontinued" - I don't have a problem revealing it here. I DO have a problem revealing which designations are outdated/discontinued before it becomes obvious. So folks here are going to have to ask on a case by case basis, after the BASIS for the question has been revealed in canon.
How many leaders have the Team had over the past 10 years and can you tell us how long they were in charge. For example when did Miss Martian become leader of the Team and how long was she in charge before stepping down.
Not a lot, surprisingly. Aqualad gave over to Nightwing, who then turned it back over to Aqualad, until he joined the League as Aquaman, at which point Miss Martian took over until she resigned, at which point Tigress took over.
Why does the jersey Artemis wear have the number 13 on it? Kinda seems like the perfect opportunity for a 16 easter egg, was wondering if there was any reason it /wasnât/ 16
I think the main reason was that the artist designed it with a 13, and no one caught it until it was too late to change. I've thought about changing it since, but continuity is continuity.
Hello again, I have a few new questions!
1) will you guys bring back the tie in comics?
2) Has Beast Boy turned into other alien animals besides the ones we've seen so far? Do zoos exist on Mars?
1. I'd love to. It's not up to me.
2. No spoilers.
I have a few questions about Season 2 of Young Justice.
1. How did the team explain Miss Martian's absence from Ivy University when she was kidnapped?
2. During the weeks in captivity, did M'gann ever discuss her and Conner's relationship?
1. Did they explain it?
2. With whom?
In season one and two, the timestampshowed single digit days (from 1 to 9) just with one digit (July 4), but since season 3 they have a zero in those cases (July 04). Why?
For legal reasons, we had to change fonts between season two and season three. I felt, with the new font, it looked better and made more sense for the show to use that place-holding "0" digit when appropriate.
Some Justice League membership timeline questions

3. When (in Team Years) did Guy Gardner join the Justice League?
4. When (in Team Years) did Blue Devil join the Justice League?
5. When (in Team Years) did Magog join the Justice League?
1. Team Year Two.
2. Team Year Two.
3. Team Year Two.
4. Team Year Seven.
5. Team Year Seven.
1: Does Kate know that bruce is her cousin and batman?
2: Did spoiler start off as in independent hero? Did she get any training from batman or another bat family member?
3: Was damian Waynethe product of a consensual sex with talia and Bruce? I've always hated the retcon it into being Talia raping Bruce.
4: Is there a reason that so many aliens look so much like humans on earth 16? I've always hated comics making aliens looks so human looking
5: When did Red tornado officially started using his John Smith body?
1. No spoilers. But, yes.
2 No spoilers.
2a. No spoilers, but of course.
3. No spoilers.
4. Other than Kryptonians, who looks human? Icon? He was organically reengineered to look human. John Jones and Megan Morse? They're shapeshifters. Hawkman and Hawkwoman? Those wings aren't accessories. They are winged humanoids.
5. Sometime after Season One.
1 How well did Jason Todd get along with the team?
2 More specifically, how well did Jason Todd get along with nightwing?
1. No spoilers.
2. No spoilers.
1: Is a child of a B'lahdenn still treated as a Noble if they come out white or green?
2: Are all martians born with the psychic powers and the ability to shape-shifting? Are the ones born without discriminated or treated negatively?
3: Are some A'ashenn grey or all of them white? This is inspired by your latest answer and your wish that you made the (A'ashenn all grey.
4: Did any martians travel to earth before
J'onn J'onzz? Did they inspire earth's myths of the Greys and little green men or other alien tales.
5: Did J'onn J'onzz always present as a black man? What was his decision for doing so?
5b: Does J'onn have multiple identities that he uses?
1. In depends how conservative one's family is. If it's very conservative, the act of marrying a G'arrunn or an A'ashenn would disqualify you from still being considered a true B'lahdenn. An extremely liberal family wouldn't, in theory, care about caste at all. But, if we're speaking generally, then I suppose the answer is no. If you're visibly A'ashenn or G'arrunn, you're not B'lahdenn.
2a. I don't know if there are any without, but you can imagine if there were what kind of reception they'd get.
3. Uh... I guess they're all white. (Or maybe it depends on the lighting or the filter on your camera.)
4. No spoilers.
5. No spoilers.
5b. I'm not saying he's NEVER used another identity, but he's fundamentally stuck with John Jones.
1: Roy harper has been raised on a native american/Indian reservation in multiple several of his backstories, it was really central to his character post crisis where he even got a Traditional tribal tattoo. So I was wondering if that's the case on Eartg 16? Just to clarify Roy isn't ethnically Native in the comics, he was just raised near by and then on the reservation following his dad's death before he enter Olllie's
2: Speaking of which what year did Roy become Ollie's ward/enter his care?
3: Did either Black canary have any kid of connection to the justice society like being trained by wildcat? Hopefully you can answer, I think it's not too spoiler.
4: Was there any superhero teams that debuted in between the justice society and the justice league?
5: Was there any names that Will harper thought of using when before he decides on Will?
5b: Did he go with will since it was easier and his middle name?
1. No spoilers. To clarify policy here, if the answer to a question in essence requires me to tell a story, then that's a story to be told (in flashback, in this case), and I'm not going to spoil that story here, even if I have no IMMEDIATE plans to tell that story.
3. No spoilers. See above for why.
4. No spoilers.
5. Not really. Going with his middle name just made sense.
Since Garfield needed a Martian animal form to survive the atmosphere, how did he deal with the specifics of acquiring a Martian animal form during his first trip?
Was he stuck inside Bio-Ship until Mâgann brought him a Maâarzuu Beast or something else to observe, or some other solution? Iâm just legitimately curious about the logistics of that first trip and shift,
The short answer is #NoSpoilers, cuz it's part of an untold story. But I think your basically on the right track.
Why didnât Gar meet Em'ree on his last trip to Mars like he did Mâcomm?
Em'ree and M'gann weren't close. Gar didn't meet most of M'gann's siblings.
I have a question about Superboy and the Kents.
1. Is John Smith aka Red Tornado still listed as Superboy's legal guardian.
2. Have Jonathan and Martha Kent adopted Superboy?
3. What kind of relationship does Superboy have with his adopted family?
2. I haven't given any thought to whether or not they officially went through that process. Probably. But in any case, if one assumes he was "written down" as 16 in Team Year One, by Team Year Ten he was over the age of consent and had or needed no legal adult guardian.
3. A good one.
A) Does Roy Harper suffer from chronic phantom limb pain?
B) Is he going to college?
C) Does have a father-son relationship with Ollie?
A. I don't know. I believe I'd have to do some research to answer that.
B. No spoilers.
C. Basically. Whereas, say, Clark and Conner really settled on a fraternal bond. And Bruce has a clear paternal bond with Dick. Ollie and Roy are somewhere in the middle.
Hi Greg, hope your doing well.
1.Has Zatanna ever dated someone else after breaking up with Dick ?
2. Has Dick dated someone else after breaking up with Zatanna and before dating Barbara ?
3. Had Dick and Zatanna ever wondered to set back together after breaking up ?
4. Had they ever regret they break up ?
Thanks for your time !
1. Technically, that's a spoiler request, but the obvious answer is yes. So... yes.
2. Dick's dated a lot of people. Some of whom he's had more than one go 'round with. So that just becomes a complicated question to answer while still avoiding spoilers.
3. There's clearly at least one typo in here, and maybe two. So I'm not exactly sure what you're asking. But if you're asking whether or not the THOUGHT has eve crossed their minds, I think the answer must be yes.
4. Depends what you mean by regret. Regret with a capital R? No. With a lower-case r? Sure. We all have moments of regret.
Who created those speakers that Gar uses when he is in beast form? How do they work? What is their name?
1. Well, if you're asking who created the core technology that they utilize, the answer is the Brain.
2. They translate mental speech impulses into a synthesized voice.
3. We call them "the little speakers on Beast Boy's collar."
Dear Mr Weisman i have some Young justice related questions for you 1. Does Mrs M'orzz watch hallmark movies on a frequent basis as she was more familiar with the purpose a wedding ring then Mr M'orzz was? 2 Are any of Miss Martian sibling's (Em'ree and M'comm aside) members of the yellow Martian order? 3. what does Black canary do for a living?
1. Only ones starring Danica McKellar or Lacey Chabert.
2. No spoilers.
3. She's a therapist, and she also owns a flower shop.
Thank you for clearing the queue and reopening the questions! I did a rewatch of Young Justice in preparation for the new season, and have these questions:
1. How was Vandal Savage able to solo Black Canary, Black Lightning, and Captain Shazam in 4 minutes at the end of Young Justice season 2 episode, "Summit"? I understand that Black Canary and Black Lightning aren't tanky, but surely Captain Shazam would be very hard to knock out?
2. Why did Vandal Savage immediately depart with the Warworld, instead of obliterating the Reach fleet at the end of "Summit"? Wasn't he leaving a lot to chance, given that the Earth could really have been destroyed by the MFDs?
3. Since Vandal Savage has been shown to regenerate from fatal wounds, why don't his facial scars heal?
4. Why did Lobo kill little Lobo at the end of Young Justice season 3, going as far as to burn the corpse? Did he really wait all that time for it to gestate?
5. Given Black Manta bristles at being enslaved by the Reach, why was he so docile towards Amanda Waller, unlike Captain Boomerang?
1. I'll leave that to your imagination.
2. I'm not sure he knew about the MFDs, or - since they were already deployed - that he had anything on Warworld that could have stopped them without also destroying the planet. Warworld is a doomsday device. It's a blunt instrument, not a surgical one.
3. Those scars pre-date his exposure to the meteor.
4. He doesn't want a second Lobo out there. As for the timing, I can see all sorts of possible explanations. I'll leave you to choose your own.
5. He has a bomb in his brain.
1- Does Roy Harper (the original) still have romantic feelings towards Cassie ?
2- Does Cassie still have feelings for him ?
3- How did Roy reacted when he learned about Tim and Cassieâs relationship ?
1. Who said he ever did? She kissed him once on the cheek, and he reacted predictably for a teenage guy. I'm not saying he doesn't but I wouldn't read too much into what you've seen.
2. See above.
3. No spoilers.
Why did Dick and Zatanna break up ?
Do Eduardo Dorado Jr, Tye and Sam count as original characters for the show? I ask because of Eduardo being called El Dorado and El Dorado is a character from Super Friends. I'm guessing it works like Kaldur/Aqualad
There's ORIGINAL, and there's original. Just as Eduardo Jr. is El Dorado and inspired (very loosely) on the El Dorado of Super Friends. Tye and Sam are inspired loosely on the Super Friends Apache Chief and Samurai, respectively.
I think we came up with original takes on these characters, that transcend what previously existed.
Hello! I've seen the last three episodes of Young Justice: Phantoms and I'm eagerly awaiting the fourth. The relationship dynamic between M'gann and her family (especially M'comm) is rivaling Artemis's in terms of pure curiosity and intrigue. I love it and I want to know everything! And given what was shown in the trailer, it looks like even more of Artemis's family dynamics are going to be explored, which is fantastic. I think this is going to be something they'll bond over this season. But who knows! Anyways, on to the questions:
01. You mentioned in a recent Tweet that âCatwoman: Huntedâ is, like your Green Arrow short, a story that also occurs similarly on Earth-16. Given that information, is it safe to assume Catwoman exists on Earth-16?
02. Are Lucas Carr and Bethany Lee alumni of Happy Harbor High School, or did they graduate elsewhere? Given that Snapper was at least living in Happy Harbor as a teenager, I assume he attended the public high school. The same can be said for Bethany, if her backstory from the comics as the daughter of Happy Harborâs police chief before becoming one herself is largely unchanged.
03. Given you are a Stanford alumni and have thought about what dorms Wally and Artemis spent their Freshman years in, did you give any thought into who their respective roommates were? Not asking for spoilers about who they were, just merely if you guys ever bothered to come up with them.
04. Is Batwoman Jewish on Earth-16 like she is in the comics? If so, wouldnât that make Batman (by proxy, if not in practice) Jewish as well, at least on his motherâs side?
05. This is a long one! I know birthdays aren't something you come up with unless the story needs it, but do you have the same line of thinking with babies born during the story? Artur, for example, was born on February 1st, 2011 (according to the YJ wiki, which got the date from Legacy). For Lian, however, we only know she was born in September 2015. Do you have a birthdate in mind for her, or just the month? For Don and Dawn Allen, you answered in an ask that their due date was sometime in the September following Invasion. Iâm not asking if that due date was accurate or when, if you know it, their actual birthday(s) are, but merely the concept as a whole. Was Artur the only one assigned a birthdate in-story because the diary entry needed a timestamp? Since then, a whole bunch of other super-kids (Anissa and Jennifer, Jonny, Traya, Amistad, and most recently Rhea) have been introduced, with Rhea being (according to Unknown Factors) born on January 21, 2019. While Rheaâs birthday is obviously a byproduct of the story and thus laying credence to your stance on only assigning birthdays when needed, she was also the only one explicitly shown. I guess this whole question can be summed up to: do children (emphasis on children somehow connected to the main cast) born DURING the story get assigned birthdays even if the story doesnât necessarily showcase/reference their birth outright? If not birthdays, then just birth-months? Or is that only come up with when needed as well?
1. Yes, in some form.
3. I actually did give a little thought to Wally's roommate. I have a notion, but I'm not locking it in unless or until a story requires it.
4a. I think it must be true that Martha Kane Wayne was Jewish. That means by Jewish tradition, Bruce Wayne is also Jewish. But I think it's also clear that he was raised as a Protestant Christian. Beyond that, again, I'm not going to go into details until or unless a story requires it.
5. Just birth years, unless the story indicates an obvious (thus necessary) birth month. And just birth months unless the story requires or dictates a birthdate.
1) When (in terms of which Team Year) did Lieutenant Marvel leave the Team?
2) When (in terms of which Team Year) did Sergeant Marvel leave the Team?
1. Team Year Five.
2. Team Year Five.
In what year did garfield logan's skin turn green in young justice timeline ?
I recently rewatched Young Justice: Invasion, and noticed that Sportsmaster calls Deathstroke by his real name, Slade; how widely known is Deathstroke's real name? Is it just a criminal underworld thing, or is it just a blondes thing (since the only other person I can recall using Deathstroke's real name is Terra)?
It's not just a blondes thing.
It's all case by case. So... not widely known. But not completely unknown either.
Some people know. There was a time - as when they killed Ted Kord together - when Sportsmaster and Deathstroke were occasional partners.
As a Canadian, the only way I can support season 4 right now is to binge seasons one and two on Netflix over and over again. Does this actually do any good in regards to getting a season 5?
I honestly don't know, but it might help, and it certainly doesn't hurt.
Hello Mr. Weisman! I hope you and the team working on YJ are doing well!
1. In episode 6 of season 2 "Bloodlines" where Bart first appears we see that in almost nothing in the future has changed after his departure (except for Neutron). Does this imply that the future is going to look that moded?
2. At the end of a Young Justice comic collection you wrote that you made a list of about 100 young heroes as potential main characters for the series. Are you ever going to publish this list?
3. If you were allowed to publish Young Justice comics again, when would the play? Before, during oder after season 3? (Assuming you already know what you want to publish).
4. Will you and your team keep on making these entertaining (and well-written) credits for following seasons when YJ gets a go from HBO Max? (I will riot if HBO Max cancels this show #keepbingingyj)
5. What do you keep from your interactions with your fans?
You heard that probably a lot, but I just want to let you know that your show got me through 2020 and I am really thankful for you, your team and the fanbase not giving up on this amazing show!
1. You should look again. The ash has stopped falling. Mount Justice is still destroyed, but that's about as far as you can see. So you don't know from the visual what has and hasn't changed.
2. Probably not.
3. No Spoilers.
4. Our goal is to continue to stuff as much entertainment value and content in as possible.
5. Mostly good stuff.
Thanks. I'm not sure how much help we were in 2020, but I'm hoping we've helped with the back quarter of 2021!
Well, as I tweeted today, YOUNG JUSTICE: PHANTOMS is complete, with all 26 episodes in the can. I've also updated all my various reference documents to include everything from Season Four (not to mention Seasons 1-3, our various comic books, the AudioPlay and the video game). And since statistics kinda fascinate me - and since maybe they might fascinate you as well - here are a few.
The Young Justice Timeline is currently 718 pages long. In the past, I've reported that the length of the timeline mysteriously differed between my laptop and my desktop computers, but during the pandemic, my (relatively) ancient desktop finally bit the dust. So now the laptop page count triumphs.
There are 759 characters confirmed - one way or another - to be in the Earth-16 Universe. Some have only been mentioned or referenced briefly. Others, obviously, have had entire arcs dedicated to them. Calling some of them "characters" might also be a bit of a stretch, but I have reasons for including every single one. And - anal individual that I am - I have actually ranked them all in order of their importance to the series. This is something I once did as a hobby for the Buffyverse (which you can find in the ASK GREG archives under the heading of "Buffyverse Geek-Out"), and I've been perfecting my ranking system ever since. The idea is to attempt to make an incredibly subjective thing as objective as possible, based on things like screen time and amount of dialogue and the amount of times other characters reference them, etc. It's still not perfect because I do wind up with point scores, and especially with the lower ranking characters, I wind up with a number of ties. Thus, in order to break any tie, I'm forced to apply more subjective criteria.I was thinking about listing them a few per week, starting with 759 and working my way backwards toward number one. But some of the names haven't been intro'd yet. So it occurs to me that I need to wait until the Phantoms' season finishes airing.
Across four seasons (98 episodes) an AudioPlay and a video game, we've used 128 actors, a phenomenally talented group if ever there was one. Some have only voiced one character. Others have voiced over a dozen. I'm honored to be included among them - even if hiring myself is a rather dubious way to earn this distinction.
There's probably more, but this will do for now.
Just a little peek into my weird brain. Hope you enjoyed it. And I hope you enjoy the show.
I dare say that Jade and Will's relationship is one of the best in the entire show. You, Brandon and the writers have managed to develop something that feels so true and pure without showing much on screen. But If ever you had the chance, would you write a story about their relationship?
I feel like we have. But if you're asking if we'd be interested in exploring it further, the answer is clearly yes.
1. To clarify a previous question about actions that Kaldur and Artemis took while undercover, I was particularly thinking about Kaldur setting off the bomb and killing a lot of Kroloteans and destroying the satellite and and both of them generally assisting in kidnapping and complicity in what happened to the kids while in Reach custody.
2. You've previously confirmed that several of the group (Mera, Artur) that appeared in "Home Fires" have designations are there any adults or kids of that group that don't?
3. Has some or all of the group met before?
4. When did John Smith take in Traya?
1. I'm sorry, what was the question?
2. No spoilers.
3. The "Home Fires" group? Yes. All of them, for the most part. That wasn't the first playdate ever.
4. No spoilers.
Does Black Canary have formal training in psychology?
Yes. (Or, at least, the Earth-16 version does.)
Did Impulse erase his own timeline with the changes he made? Also, it seemed in his original timeline Barry died and not Wally, was that so?
1. He did as far as he was concerned, yes.
2. Barry died. Whether or not Wally also died is unknown.
Why doesn't Breast Boy turn into Extinct animals or dinosaurs on Young Justice?
Gar's never met any extinct animals (including dinosaurs) to bond with and learn from. Also, it's Beast Boy, not Breast Boy. That's a very different character, whose activities we do NOT approve of.
a) Who was Roy Harper living with post season 2?
b) Is Royâs arm removable?
c) How hasnât he grown out of his prosthetic?
d) Does he have spare prosthetics?
e) Does he write with this left hand now?
a. Immediately? Ollie.
c. Um... it was pretty large to begin with? And/or, Hardware has been helpful keeping the fit. Yeah. Some combo of those two things.
d. Probably. Not cybernetic spares, but more down-to-earth ones.
e. Did he write with his right hand before?

Young Justice Questions for Greg Weisman:
1. Are Superman and Lois Lane currently married, and if so, for how long?
2. When Orm's identity as Ocean-Master, how did Arthur Curry and Mera react to this revelation?
3. After Lady Shiva killed Ocean-Master, where was his body taken to after she quickly cleaned out the house?
4. As of Young Justice Season 4, who is the current leader of the Justice League?
5. Within The Light, what are the designation numbers for Ultra-Humanite and Zviad Baazovi?
1a. No spoilers.
2. How do you think?
3. No spoilers.
4. It's still Black Lightning. He offered to continue on to follow through on some initiatives he had started. And the membership of the League voted him a second term.
5. The Light doesn't really have in-universe designation numbers. But I guess their out of universe designations are L-11 and L-12, respectively.
There is something that I find interesting at the end of season 2 Aqualad and the team derailed Vandal's plan or rather it went slightly of course now reach had hidden bombs on earth, Now while Light and Lex had the foresight to develop anti reach software was the light aware of the final disruptor in the top North Magnetic Pole, cause it seems just too big of a gamble to rely on 3 flashes one of them who is from the future to stop this disruptor. Does that mean if the Flashes hadn't stopped the disruptor the earth would have been destroyed and Light would have failed or did they have a backup plan in case of heroes failing too. So basically what I am asking light does not have backup plans for every scenario or not. Cause if this is so then Vandal and the Light nearly lost because of their overconfidence in not estimating the threat that the heroes pose.
The Light was not aware of it, no. And, no, the Light can't possibly anticipate EVERY possible contingency. I'm sure they had some kind of emergency procedure if they believed Earth flat out couldn't be saved, but that's a last resort of course.
Hope you've been well and I'm really enjoying S4 so far. I've watched the first two episodes like 8 times. So I know La'gaan left the team at some point in between seasons. But we know he's still helping when needed. So I'm wondering if you feel like Conner and La'gaan's relationship improved at all before he decided to head out?

So, Iâm trying to understand something about Batman Incorporated. The League is sanctioned under the UN, so they operate, more or less, within the law, but the UN can limit what they do publicly.
The Team is not something the public or the UN is aware of, so they are off the books. Iâm guessing the League consider the Team to be largely an internal matter amongst themselves and donât want to drag the UN into it, since most of them as their own protÃ©gÃ© they are training, and others are young heroes they want to help mentor. But by the end of Season 2, the League recognize the Team as equals and allow them to plan their own missions. Of course, they still work together, but the League no longer claims to be an authority figure over the Team. But does that mean the Team is no longer monitored by the League? And if so, that means they are not bound by the UN and they donât seem to be during Season 3.
This brings up the issue with Batman Incorporated. Batman and other Leaguers decide to quit and continue to work together in secret since the UN is blocking them thanks to Luthor. Jefferson is not pleased by this or the fact they were still working with the League behind the scenes. But how is this any different than what the Team was doing? They go on covert missions and help the League behind the scenes, while the public is unaware of what they do, and they donât have permission from the UN. A good example would be in Season 1, when they go on a mission to Bialya, where the League is not allowed to go. So, the League were already working around the UN by using the Team. So, why would it be an issue for the League to use Batman Incorporated in what is largely the same manner? What was the difference in Batman, Katana and Metamorpho infiltrating Santa Prisca for intel, when the Team did that very same thing as well?
Yes, there is the argument that they are being no better than the Light be adopting their methods, but wasnât this part of the reason the Team was created in the first place? After Cadmus, they realized the bad guys are getting smarter on how they operate, so the Team would help level that playing field. And yes, Jefferson has a point when he says they shouldnât be keeping secrets. But the League was also doing this when it kept the Watchtower hidden.
And minor thing, but didnât the Reach Ambassador expose the Team to Secretary Tseng during the conversation with Captain Atom? And if he didnât, why didnât Lex expose them to further his antihero campaign?
Also, are the Team, well-known among, I guess I would say, the villain community? Black Manta obviously knows them and told Captain Boomerang. But the Team has been going nearly 10 years now. Wouldnât some word of mouth have gotten around about their exploits?
1. The Team is still monitored by the League. But they leave much of the running of it to the Team's older members. They aren't bound by U.N. restrictions but should be. It's a cheat because the U.N. as an organization is not officially aware of the Team's existence. The members of the U.N. who are, keep the secret for their own reasons.
2. In a way, it's not. One of the things that upsets Jeff is that nearly everyone was in the dark. Another is that Batman Inc. (which was never really their name - though Jeff's repetition of it started to stick) wasn't simply going on covert missions but was manipulating people and events. It's not the Santa Prisca mission that upsets Jeff. But the Brooklyn manipulations are an entire other story.
As Jeff stated, he sees a value in the Team's covert existence and missions - not for the sake of them being covert - but because it allowed the young heroes to learn and grow outside the spotlight.
As for how prominent the Team is within the super-villain community, it's a mixed bag.
Providing there was a sizable amount of the population who didn't care for mango (and strawberry) and peach flavored Reach, did the Reach and Lexcorp plan to make other flavors of the drink?
I know that I would be subjugated if they had say blue raspberry.
The rollout of blue raspberry is on its way...
1. Is Dreamer the New God a more powerful psychic that can get information that normal telepaths can't at least without harming them like she did in her first appearance?
2. What were the Lightâs traditions that Ultra Humanite was referring too?
3. Why didnât the Light dispose of Speedy when they were okay with it for the other sidekicks when they were captured in Cadmus?
4. What was the official reason/cover story that Lex Luthor had held Speedy captive for so long?
5. Could martians have children with humans or atlanteans or
even other aliens?
1. "More powerful" than whom? I'm not too big on power comparisons. Her powers are different but overlap with other psychics we have in the series.
2. I think he states it fairly clearly in the episode.
3. They thought he might be useful, and by that time there was no fear that his existence would out their clone.
4. I don't understand this question. Cover story for whom?
5. It's a good question... that I'm not going to answer, as any answer could constitute a potential spoiler.
What is your favorite episode of each (complete) season of Young Justice so far? Which ones do you think are objectively the best of each season?
I don't have conclusive or definitive feelings about them in the way you seem to be implying.
I am very fond of Independence Day, Misplaced, Summit, Endgame, Evolution and Overwhelmed. But I honestly love every episode (like a proud papa).
Okay so my question requires a bit of background:
All three of the Harper boys (Will: B06, Roy: B25, Jim: A45) have different designations yet are identical as they are clones. So, why does the Zeta Tech not view them all as one person?
In S2, the eye scanner at the Arrow Cave viewed both Roy and Will as the same person. When it scanned Will's eyes it recognized him as Roy, who was already inside, then the alarm went off. I am supposing the technology must be different and I am guessing the Zeta tech is more advanced. But then how does it function? WHAT differentiates them?
The only two things I could think were age and physical attributes. All three Harpers are different ages (technically with Jim being the eldest and Roy being the youngest due to time spent on ice) and have differing physical attributes (hair, facial hair, muscle mass, height, limbs in Roy's case.)
My main question is: how does the zeta tube recognize people? Is it through blood, through DNA, through physical attributes? And how can it tell the Harper boys apart?
Thank you so much and really enjoying S4 thus far! :)
Captain Marvel and Billy Batson were genetically identical, but the Zeta Tube didn't recognize them as the same person. You're assuming that the Zeta Tube is genetically testing potential travelers. And it clearly isn't. I mean how do you genetically test Red Tornado to identify him? Or Sphere?
a) What is Ollieâs relationship with Roy and Will like right now?
b) Did Roy join school after he left the team?
c) Is Roy Native American in YJ as well?
a. Pretty solid.
b. You're the second person today to ask me that. I haven't thought about it, strangely.
c. He might have some Native American ancestry, but generally, he's a white guy.
Hi Greg! So happy for season four!
A few questions:
You said here you didn't remember confirming if Bruce was Tim's legal guardian here (https://www.s8.org/gargoyles/askgreg/search.php?qid=24832). But you kinda did earlier in this reply (https://www.s8.org/gargoyles/askgreg/search.php?qid=17071). Any clarifications?
In reply to this question you state that Paula is half-Vietnamese, which would make Artemis and Jade a quarter Vietnamese (https://www.s8.org/gargoyles/askgreg/search.php?qid=21311). In pretty much every other questions, you've stated that Artemis and Jade are a half-Vietnamese, which would mean that Paula isn't mixed. Any clarifications on that front?
In True Heroes, it was stated that Tara was 15. In your reply in to this question (https://www.s8.org/gargoyles/askgreg/search.php?qid=24377), however, you stated that she was 16. Can we take we to mean she turned 16 sometime during the story?
Nothing is canon, including what I write here, unless or until that it appears in canon media (episode, comics, video game, audio play). So, as for Tim: no spoilers. And as for Paula, at some point, I clearly had a reason to state that she was biracial. I honestly don't remember why, but I reserve the right to remember again at a later date.
Season Three began in Team Year Eight and ended in Team Year Nine. So, in True Heroes, she's 15. By the END of Team Year Nine, as clearly stated in the answer cited above, she's 16. But Season Three ended in February of Team Year Nine. All I'm saying is that she turned 16 by December of that year. I'm not saying which month her birthday is in.
1. When exactly was Beast Boy's last trip to Mars, because he mentions having been there before at some point prior to M'comm taking on his Ma'alefa'ak persona, but it wasn't brought up previously.
2. Was the plot of "The Prize" based around who was available at the time to do the recording, or was it always planned to feature those characters specifically?
3. In-universe, why did Waller only send Tuppence on the mission to abduct Clayface rather than both her and Tommy?
4. Why are Martians shapeshifting into noted alien-hater G. Gordon Godfrey like they are the Outsiders? Do they just find his endless stream of hatred funny or is it to mock him?
1. On screen, Aqualad assigned Beast Boy, Miss Martian and Superboy on a mission to Mars immediately after the end of Season Two.
2. Brandon and I came up with the basic story in advance. We asked a quantity of specific actors, and most - but not quite all - were available. So I cut those few unavailable actors' characters, which we had been planning to use, out of the script, as I was writing it. It was a very fast turnaround.
4. I'll leave that to your interpretation. But maybe different Martians have different reasons?
In Bloodlines, Bart and Jay ended up in the cave at the end of the episode. Bart escaped the cave earlier on because Mal opened the hatch. And we know Jay received an A designation at some point between then and when he helped in Endgame. My question is did Bart and Jay receives A designations in that episode to get into the cave. Or did someone just open the hatch again?
They were granted A-Designations.
Hello Greg! After just watching the first two episodes of YJ Phantoms on HBO Max, I just want to say that I thoroughly enjoyed it! I'm so excited to see where the Mars storyline takes us, and meeting M'gann's family has been quite the surreal experience. M'gann's attitude and confidence was a sight to behold whenever she (unfortunately) had to deal with the Green Martians' prejudice and outright assault. I love to see it! Anyways, here are some questions:
01 | Did Roy go back to school after being rescued from the Light? It's assumed that Will was the one that finished his education in Roy's place, so was Roy homeschooled after the fact or did he go back to attending public/private school? Was he not schooled at all? Or was Roy (pre-frozen) homeschooled from the get-go and, as such, so was Will?
02 | In the tie-in comics, it's apparent that Dick and Bette hooked up on the eve of his birthday. Given the retcon (if that's the appropriate word) of the Wayne/Kane family relations in the comics, as well as on the show (with the addition of Batwoman and your confirmation that Bette and Martha Wayne are related), would it be safe to say that neither Dick nor Bette knew that they were distant cousins to some degree?
03 | While I assume it was for budgetary reasons, was there a specific reason you guys chose to use Talia's whitewashed design with the same overtly sensualized/sexualized outfit from the recent DC Animated Movies instead of the more appropriately Arabic and regal design Christopher Jones gave her in the tie-in comics?
04 | A lot of stuff has changed very recently in the comics regarding character sexuality, what with Tim Drake and Jon Kent both being confirmed bisexual (though, as of this writing, I don't think Tim's put a label on it one way or another). Whether or not you were privy to such a development isn't what I'm asking about, per say, but you've stated in earlier posts that you'd never take away an LGBTQ+ character's sexuality away (the question was in reference to Renee Montoya's sexuality in the show), so even though I highly doubt it would effect S4 at all, would the change be taken into consideration in later seasons? I'm not asking about Tim and/or Jon specifically, by the way, just the notion itself. Would a previously perceived straight character getting recently confirmed/retconned as another sexuality impact your interpretation of that character? Just for example, Alan Scott has been gay in the comics for quite a few years now, same with Wonder Woman and her bisexuality. Given that you make histories and timelines regarding most of the characters on your shows, I assume you've done the same with these two back in S1 when they were first introduced, but back when in the comics they were straight. Has the retcon changed things for you guys, or is it largely a non-issue?
05 | Not really a question, just more love for Phantoms! The poster alone was phenomenal, and I'm so stoked for what's to come, especially given the trailer, the first two episodes, and the new opening! I'm so glad Raquel is (seemingly) taking a bigger spotlight this season, hopefully we can finally find out who she married!
1. I honestly haven't thought about these issues.
2. Dick's not blood-related to Bette, either way.
3. She's still Arabic in my mind. Phil chose which design to use, but I don't believe we colored her white.
4. As a rule, I wouldn't change an LGBTQ+ character into a heteronormative character. But being with a partner of one sex doesn't preclude someone being bi, obviously. And even, say, with a character like Alan Scott, given the environment and era he grew up in, he could be gay - not bi - and still have been with women in his past. I have contemporaries much younger than Alan who didn't self-acknowledge their sexuality until long after they were adults in adult relationships with members of the opposite sex.
5. I LOVE those posters! All props to Brandon, Chris and Jason for their work on them.
Today, I just saw the first two episodes of Young Justice: Phantoms on HBO Max and I have to say, I am completely blown away by the animation quality of this season! Studio Mir really nailed it with this season and the animation is on par with the first two seasons (not to say the animation companies who did Outsiders was bad but still could've been better) and I'm looking forward to the rest of the season and pray that Warner Bros. Animation or HBO Max renews the show for a fifth season.
Now, when I was rewatching the show a few weeks ago in preparations for its fourth season's debut this year, something interesting popped up in my mind while I was watching the first three seasons:
1. In the first episode of Season 2, John Stewart/Green Lantern explained to the Justice League and The Team that Kroloteans's culture revolves around stolen alien tech. If this species is so involved in stealing technology from other alien races, how were they even able to travel outside their home planet in the first place? Were they originally an intelligent race like the Rannians and the Kryptonians that successfully managed to travel outside their homeworld and establish first contact but eventually became jealous of other alien species advanced technology so much so that eventually caused them to cease all homemade Krolotean tech and resorted to stealing alien technology for themselves?
2. A decade ago when the first season of Young Justice was going strong on Cartoon Network, you responded to a question stating that New Gods are ageless beings. What does this mean exactly? Are they immune to the effects of aging and disease and can potentially live forever? The reason I'm asking is because Dreamer stated to Superboy that fellow New God Serifan grew up watching Earth Western movies on New Genesis. Does this mean that New Gods like Serifan are born similar to Humans and age like them but at some point in their lives, they hit a certain milestone and effectively stopped aging like regular Humans and become Ageless beings?
3. Regarding Lords of Order and Chaos. In Season 3's episode Evolution, it showed that Nabu/Doctor Fate was originally a human but after he died, he somehow ascended to become a Lord of Order. How is it possible that Nabu became a Lord of Order in the first place? Are certain humans capable of becoming a Lord of Order after death? Can this also apply to Lords of Chaos like Klarion? Was Klarion originally born a human like Nabu but became a Lord of Chaos after his death?
4. You mention that everything that has happened in real life has also happened in Young Justice like 9/11, Hurricane Katrina, the 2008 Financial Crisis, and the COVID-19 Pandemic. I guess this means that certain Islamic terrorist groups like Al-Qaeda, ISIS, Boko Haram, and Hezbollah also exist in Young Justice? How do these groups react to groups like the Justice League and certain events on Earth like the Reach Invasion and Meta-Human Trafficking? Do they believe these events shook their faith in their religion and their supporters in the Middle East? Or do they use them to their advantage to bolster their plans against the West and the rest of the world?
5. How does a Lord of Chaos like Klarion view the state of Earth it is in? I can imagine that he must be thrilled with events like the Syrian Civil War and the collapse of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan in 2021 since they bring Chaos to the world. Has he secretly pulled strings behind the scenes to bring Chaos to Earth or does he let events transpire on its own without getting involved?
1. I can think of a couple of possible scenarios, but I'm not going to tell a story here at ASK GREG. As always, NO SPOILERS.
2. Did I really say "Ageless beings"? Well, that doesn't make much sense to me now, assuming it ever did. Some New Gods are clearly older than others. Relative to Earthlings, they may SEEM ageless, though.
3. No spoilers.
4. I'll leave that to your interpretation. As for Covid, our show was too far into production to be able to incorporate Covid into our storytelling. So maybe on Earth-16, the pandemic hit a year later. Maybe.
5. Again, I'm not telling stories here. I'll leave that to your interpretation.
