Belle Rave's Wall made from Krytonite &/or Lead

Greg responds...

No Kryptonite. There may be lead mixed into the steel alloy. I don't know.

1.) How well known are Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson? To clarify, would they be easily recognized if someone happened to pass them on the street or are they mostly out of the limelight?
2.) Was Bruce Wayne's adoption of Dick Grayson well-publicized?
3.) What is Bruce Wayne's position in Wayne Enterprises? Does he have controlling stock?

Greg responds...

1. Bruce Wayne is a public figure - though hardly a Hollywood star type. Dick is pretty much unknown.

2. Not particularly.

3. He's CEO, but not COO. And, I'd think so.

Hey Greg Why are you trying Kid Flash with Artemis since we all know who she really is it more likey end up with Icicle Jr?

Greg responds...

You seem to be assuming that what took place in the main DCU is a lock for Earth-16. And that's just not so. Heck, it doesn't even seem to be the case for the new 52 Universe.

Hello, Mr. Weisman.

My questions today are more closely related to television programming. So here goes.

1. Have you viewed the new ThunderCats on Cartoon Network that debuted last year? Assuming so, what did you think of it?

2. Have you viewed any of the original episodes of the ThunderCats cartoon? Assuming so, what is your opinion of the old show, and how do you think it compares to the latest incarnation?

3.The original ThunderCats cartoon met the 65 mark episode needed to go into syndication, and produced episodes beyond it. While many of the new episodes were entertaining, I could not help but notice, in my opinion, a decline in certain qualities of the show. One of the areas hit hardest, in my opinion, was the writing in the episodes. This seemed to manifest itself in terms of more predictable scenarios occurring, less creative solutions to the problems that arose and eventually lackluster storylines. ThunderCats wasn’t the only show to suffer from this though. Cartoons like Captain Planets, which also surpassed the 65-episode mark, began to experience a bit of a lag, and lost many of the original voice actors/actresses who made their characters so exceptional.
4. So my question is what exactly happens to a show behind the scenes after moving beyond syndication? Is a show’s storyline only plotted out for 65 episodes and not expected to pass it? Or does the writing team have to brainstorm an entirely new set of ideas for episodes beyond? Are new writers assigned to the program or the old ones retained? Are the initial voice actors/actresses replaced with new people, choose not to renew their contract or different causes altogether?

Thanks for the time.

Greg responds...

1. I haven't had time to see it, but I really like the people involved with it.

2. I did a long time ago, when I was working on a single script for a different reboot that didn't see the light of day. But you need to understand that I never saw it when it first came on, so I have no nostalgia for it.

3. I just have no opinion on this. I only saw a handful of episodes.

4. Every case is different. And obviously, I have no idea what went on with ThunderCats.

and another comment about "misplaced". that scene where zatanna/nabu says "no" to zatara's request to release her... it's been a long time since any animated show has made me go "wow". who storyboarded that shot of her? it was perfect from the tilt of her head to her stone cold eyes.

Greg responds...

There's just no way for me to remember specifically, I'm afraid. But the credited board artists for 119 were: Charles E. Drost, III, Paul Harmon and Jeff Johnson, and the credited revisionist was Owen Sullivan. Throw in director MIchael Chang and Producer Brandon Vietti, and the odds are that one of those six talented people (plus the animators) gave you your "wow"!

I was just reading the Toonzone interview with the late Dwayne McDuffie (http://www.toonzone.net/news/articles/36545/toonzone-presents-an-interviewtribute-to-dwayne-mcduffie) and he describes the difference between Story By credits and Teleplay By credits on Justice League, and how there may be a lot more writing done by uncredited main writers on the show. Is this similar to how you work on your shows?

Greg responds...

Yeah, more or less.

I hate to post twice in a row, but this question *definitly* can't be included with the last one, and I don't trust myself to remember this another day.

I know you've been reading the "Buffy" season 8 comics. Do you have any plans on ever updating your "Buffyverse Geek-Out" to reflect any changes that have occurred since season 7?

Greg responds...

No. One of these days, time allowing, I'd love to sit down and read all of Season Eight in one sitting. But it's not a high priority, I'm afraid.
