Hey Greg! Can I ask the age of:
2. Blue Devil?
As of the end of Season One:
Wildcat is 91.
Blue Devil is 25.
When were Mal Duncan and Zatanna born?
I dunno. Probably Happy Harbor and New York City, respectively, but I won't be held to that.
Wow! I can't believe I finally got in at the right time! I live in Australia, so I can never post a question...unless it is at a time like this...when our two times just happen to be perfect!
First off, I would just like to say; I love Young Justice. I know you must get that a lot, but I truly am obsessed! So obsessed, I have even managed to obsess several of my friends! To the point of obsession, that my parents worry, and that's saying something.
The long awaited episode 19 was remarkable! I loved the story line/plot, and everything was just great! As usual, of course! :)
I don't want to trigger spoilers of anything of the sort, and I've scoured the archive sin search of my questions...but, hopefully this question hasn't been asked.
1. When will Wally West get his cast off? I aplogize if this is a spoiler, but It was just a wonder.
2. In the comics, don't the Flashes all pretty much have super healing? If so...why doesn't Wally in the show? If he did, wouldn't his cast be off already?
3. I read the summary for Episode 20. And. WALLY WEST (my fave character) IS GONNA BE 16...which means...he'll be just that more awesome. Really, trying to get to the point, what will the date for his birthday be? The last episode finished sometime in November (though i forget when *face-palm*). Or is this one of these obviously, wait and see questions?
4. I read that the last episode of Season 1 (Auld Acquaintance) will have the date of December 31st! Is this true?
5. What style of art is the show drawn in? Or, how would you describe the style of art?
I seriously, have like a list of a hundred things I'd like to ask you...but, you're a busy man! So i'll let you move on! Maybe next time?
I understand If you can't answer the questions. I would hate for the show to be spoilt too! One of the pluses of living down under- it takes hours to find out info about the show- most of which Is from random sites and is never true! Its one huge, randomistic (? I am aware this isn't a word) adventure!
Thank you for even taking the time to read this.
p.s Maybe you are, or are not aware- but, THEY HAVE STARTED AIRING YOUNG JUSTICE IN AUSTRALIA! Which means...I can re-watch all the episodes for the ump-teenth (? typo) time!
I'm not sure what your timezone has to do with posting here, since when ASK GREG is open, it's open 24/7.
1. Well, Sophie, of course it WAS a spoiler. And by now, you probably know that it came off in episode 120, "Coldhearted". I don't mean to single you out, but this is a perfect example of a question that didn't need asking, as the episodes themselves answered it LONG before it reached me in the massive queue. In fact, nearly ALL your questions fall into that category.
2. As stated many times before, just because it's true in the - since rebooted - mainstream DC Universe, you cannot assume it's true on the series. Base your assumptions on what you see ON THE SERIES. Not on past interpretations.
3. Yeah, it is. A little patience - given our timestamps - would have OBVIOUSLY provided this info. (November 11.)
4. Ditto. (Are we sensing a theme here.)
5. Phil's style.
Dear sir, I love the interactions between the characters and the friendship that the team displays. I especially love Dick and Wally's chemistry, they were my favourite characters in the old comics, and their friendship has transcended many decades, reboots and adaptions. Dick and Wally haven't been seen together much in animated adaptions so it's great to see them as best buds again in YJ.
What I'd like to know, is if maybe an episode or tie-in comic issue will tell the story in detail of Wally, Dick, Kaldur and Roy's meeting eachother, and how they became friends?
Thanks for your time, and for considering my questions.
Given enough episodes and issues, I'll cover everything.
Dear Mr Weisman, first I'd like to congratulate you on creating such a fine piece of DC universe history. Young Justice is the finest cartoon I've seen in years, and the best DC Comics adaptation I've ever seen. I'd also like to thank you on having something like this Ask section. Few creators are patient enough and willing to deal with things like fan questions, especially when not all askers are pleasant people.
I'd like to ask a few questions. I hope the subject doesn't bother you.
1. Do Michael Jon Carter and Ted Kord exist in this universe?
2. If so, are we going to see them, even briefly as a cameo in the same way we saw Plastic Man and Guy Gardener?
3. If they exist, is Ted Kord still alive?
Thank you for taking the time to read my queries, sir.
1. SPOILER REQUEST. NO COMMENT.
What's was the budget for the first season of young justice
Ps big fan of just about all our work
That's proprietary information.

Plus, hey, Vic Cook!! The SpecSpidey partners together again!
Hope to see you there!
Hey greg what's up I would love to ask you a questions regarding your story telling techniques
You have said in the past that you could go be telling stories forever if you wanted and in fact sometimes not even the tv show is enough for them hence the comics.
But have you ever considered in giving your characters and stories a Grand finale?.
I think something that has made me a bit sad is that in your past shows you have been cut short due to executive decitions out of your control and we have been unable to get anything resembling an ending that actually gives closure (w.i.t.c.h,Spectacular spiderman, gargoyles etc)
However it is always nice when a tv show character directly says goodbye to te audience(like batman the brave and the bold) or when every major plot point is solved at the end.
A big trait of western media in it's majority like tv shows and specially comics is that the characters "are frozen in time".
Spiderman for instance will always be a young man that fights crime and the story won't go beyond that,same for superman and batman. When the story gets after a certain point we as fans tend to get reboots reapeaing the smae story.
I would like to ask you if given the chance will you give us a finale to your works like gargoyles.
Will we ever see the closure of them?
Do you believe in "grand finales"?
Or do you want simply to never give them a real ending o your shows and simply give the idea that the story will be around forever?
Yeah, I'm not so much into Grand Finales. Probably why I'm more of a television or comic book guy than a movie or graphic novel guy. I believe (whole-heartedly) in the on-going story. That's what LIFE feels like to me.
Gargoyles is a perfect example. Characters come; characters go and some even die, but the world goes on. I even know (but don't ask) how Goliath dies, but I don't see it as the end of that world. It's only A FINALE, because there is no THE FINALE.
I suppose if one was writing a story with a single lead, a la Spider-Man, and either (a) one killed him off or (b) one really ran out of stories to tell, then I could see staging that big Grand F before you waved goodbye forever. But that assumes there isn't a new Spider-Man waiting in the wings and/or that a guy like me would actually run out of stories. And that hasn't happened to me, at least not yet.
Is the recent "Justice League: Doom" movie set in the same universe as "Young Justice"?
Nope. I haven't even had the chance to see it.
Mr. Weisman, you've explained your rationale about Zatanna, but why is Barbara Gordon so young? In the original comics, she was in her twenties while Dick was a teenager. She was old enough to work as a librarian, a job which usually requires a college degree, and she was living independently. If nothing else, the fact that she was eventually elected to Congress demonstrates that she was at least twenty-five, since that's the Constitutional requirement for members of the House of Representatives. Is there a reason why she's so young in Earth-16?
In the ORIGINAL COMICS, Dick was Robin for decades before Barbara Gordon came on the scene. DECADES. Putting her ahead of him, age-wise, never made much sense to me. They feel like contemporaries. (Even the original Bat-Girl, Betty Kane, was Robin's contemporary.) Brandon and the folks at DC agreed, so that's what we did. The age disparity is preserved a bit in her relationship to Tim in YJ:I. And that feels more natural to me.
As for her being a congresswoman when she gets older - nothing precludes that. If we ever get that far. (Maybe we'll do a time skip.) :)
