Cartoon Network's DC Nation block uses the Young Justice art designs for the Justice League as well as Young Justice designs, info, and even clips in some of its "Secret Files" for Blue-Beetle, Impulse, etc. Do you know if the ending of Young Justice as well as Dc Nation consisting only of Beware the Batman and Teen Titans GO! for now on will affect this?

Greg responds...

I don't know.

Props to GLTAS

I just want to extend my congratulations to a great season of Green Lantern The Animated Series.

I had no involvement in it, other than as a fan. I watched it every week on DC Nation, and really enjoyed it. And I think their last episode was just killer. I've been really impressed with the work that Jim, Giancarlo, Bruce and the rest of the crew has done all year, and with a core voice cast of Josh Keaton, Kevin Michael Richardson, Jason Spisak and Grey Delisle, it just doesn't get any better.

Obviously, I wish they were making more, but that doesn't change the fact that what they already accomplished was stellar!

Well, I've finally caught up and cleaned out the ASK GREG queue. We'll plan to reopen the site- at least briefly - when Young Justice: Invasion #23 hits the stands later this month. Then again, when DC Nation starts up with new Young Justice: Invasion episodes on January 5th, 2013.

I'm looking forward to reading your responses to the new issues and episodes - and to Black Manta's Celebrity Hot Tub. (If there seems to be a demand, I might be tempted to write more of the latter for this site.)

But right now... I'm going to take a short break.

Mr. Greg Weisman,

I don't know if you sometimes surf around the internet during your free time, but I wanted to let you know that it's been crazy since DC Nation was pulled off of Cartoon network without warning.

Here are a at least two things that I know that have been happening:

A. A Petition to Bring DC Nation Back A.S.A.P. - Apparently, someone started an online petition sometime after the announcement that DC Nation was coming back in January 2013. It seems that that the massive negative response to this announcement is what prompted the petition in the first place. From what I understand, the petition is trying to go for at least 10,000 people to sign this petition online. I believe you can find on Young Justice Wiki and from what I've read around the internet, I think that the people who doing this petition find it extremely beneficial if you and your co-workers gave your signatures to this petition. The fans are angry, and that's understandable.... since the press release info for the latest Young Justice DVD DID SAY that Season Two would be all done by December.. I guess the loyal fans of the show just want to see everything run the way that they are originally supposed to be...

B. Theories going about on why DC Nation was removed - This was the most insane part of it. On Young Justice Wiki there was a blog that mentioned three theories about what happened. Of the three, the most ridiculous two that I've read are about the possibility that DC Comics lost its rights to Milestone-related Characters (like Static) and that the presence of Stephanie Brown on your show had something to do with DC Nation being temporarily removed from Cartoon Network. This appears to be ridiculous, and I'm sure you'll agree with me on this. Considering the genius of you and your co-workers into putting this parallel DC universe together and how you plan things WAY in advance, there is no way theories like these would be true.

Thanks for hearing me out. I just wanted to let you know what's been going on.


Greg responds...

Uh... thanks for the update.

A. No comment.

B - Yes, theories about any particular characters - all already approved - being the reason why DC Nation (i.e. both YJ and Green Lantern) were pulled are ridiculous.

regarding your post about not owning a smartphone... i saw you playing on your phone one year at sdcc. i think it was way old school, with the green screen and all. haha. :)

anyway, my question is: are the yj stories in the dc nation magazine new stories, and are they canon? (trying to decide whether i need to pick it up.)

Greg responds...

Ah, those were the days...

To be fair, it didn't have a green screen but it was tiny and it wasn't a smartphone. I held onto that phone until it flat out stopped working. Then I had it fixed three times, but it kept dying. So, finally, just this past September, I broke down and bought an iPhone. But I still mostly ONLY use it as a cellphone. I don't check e-mail or the internet on it. I do not WANT to be that connected.

I'm not sure I've seen the DC Nation Magazine, so I'm not sure.

It has been confirmed for a very long time that next year there will be a new batman series for DC nation. But recent information says there will also be a new Teen Titans go series[which is supposed to be comedy heavy..not sure how I feel about that. And it looks like its animation went very down]

Anyway my point is next year 2013 if those two shows will be on DC nation block what does that mean for Young Justice? Will DC nation be extended to two hours. Or maybe every week they will switch up the shows?

Greg responds...

I can't comment on this.

Which of the DC Nation shorts are you enjoying the most?

Greg responds...

SBFF and Animal Man are both fun little series. Some of the Mad shorts are pretty funny, and some of the Teen Titans shorts too.
