What did you think of the latest season of Dexter ? Did you enjoy it? [Spoiler]Unfortunately, I read an online review after the first episode aired where the reviewer suggested that the Dr. Geller wasn't alive so that ruined the big reveal later in the season.[/Spoiler] I wish I was able to watch the show not knowing what I had read. I might have enjoyed the season more if I had figured it out on my own.
I was happy that they were tackling Dexter's issue with religion and I thought that the character of Brother Sam was a good method to do it since the show kept me guessing whether he was a good or bad. I didn't enjoy the whole Doomsday killer due to being spoiled, but I did like that his name was Travis Marshall. (I like Gargoyle's Travis Marshall better.)
I read that a lot of people were bothered by the way that Debra/Dexter were handled this season. I didn't mind it, but I don't think it was needed. Will her "increased" feelings really be a factor proceeding the events of the finale? I look forward to finding out.
Good luck with rest of Season 1 and Season 2 of Young Justice. I'll be watching. Take care.

I did kinda feel like the Debra thing came out of left field for me a bit. But I think they played it fairly well, and Erin and I mostly really enjoyed the Season.
In âTargetsâ the peace conferences or negotiations between North and South Rhelasia were being held in Taipei. However, few countries â"and no countries in Asia- have diplomatic relations with Taiwan (the Republic of China) due to pressure from mainland China (the Peopleâs Republic of China). And since Iâm pretty sure the Rhelasias would have to have diplomatic relations with the ROC in order to hold the talks there, I was wondering if this was accounted for while writing the episode. Were these politics considered?
Of course, this isnât really important to the episode and you can always just say that on Earth 16 the ROC has wide diplomatic recognition.
I also noticed that Taipei has been used for several scenes since "Targets," most recently in "Misplaced" when the team is broadcasting a message to the children of the world. Was Taipei used again to create a sense of resonance between episodes? Was it so you could reuse some material -such as a background- to keep the budget down? Or for a different reason entirely?
Matt - No. I'm not sure I follow your logic either. What the Rhelasians required was neutral turf. Taipei provided that. If we got the politics wrong, I'll take responsibility - but also run right over and say the politics of Earth-16 may be different from what you're used to.
As for its reuse, it's a combination of both your stated reasons, with perhaps a slight emphasis on budget.
Klarion, Brain, Luthor and Ra's have an episode to themselves. Apparantly Queen Bee's is coming soon. I bet Vandal Savage is saved for last. But what about Aquaman's main enemy; Ocean Master? Apart from hiring Black Manta, he hasn't had a major episode yet. I was wondering when he'll show up!
He's appeared in 108 in "Downtime" and he had a two-parter in our companion comic book, i.e. issues 14 and 15. Beyond that, it's a SPOILER REQUEST. NO COMMENT.
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.
