In every mission in Young Justice Legacy, each character who leads a three-member group is canon while the other two that follows the group leader are technically not because they are determined by the player. If the game had instead been an animated movie, which two characters would have canonically went with each group leader during each mission...?

Greg responds...

I don't know. I'd have to sit down and work that out for each mission, and I don't really have the incentive to do that right now. Or probably ever.

In regards to "Young Justice: Legacy," why was it decided that it would be a video game, as opposed to an animated film...?

Greg responds...

Where did this notion of it being an animated film come from?

WB was approached by Little Orbit, who wanted to make a YJ video game. So Brandon and I worked with Little Orbit to make the game as significant and substantial and as true to the series as possible.

No one ever approached us and said "Make a YJ movie," let alone approached us and said, "Would you rather make a movie or a video game?"

And while I'm at it, let me dispel another myth about the game. Folks - including folks I respect - have speculated that the delays in the game caused it to come out after season two, when they thought it was clearly designed to come out between the first two seasons, simply because it was SET between the first two seasons. This is flat-out not true. It was designed to fill in blanks. But we never would have approved the story in Legacy if we thought for a moment it might come out before ALL of season two had aired. It would have messed up nearly all of our mysteries and reveals.

The game was delayed, coming out far later after season two than we would have hoped. But it was NEVER supposed to come out before Season Two. Never.

Had Beast Boy been on missions before the young justice legacy events happen?

Greg responds...

At least one.

Hello good day
I have a question

The animated films Justice League: Doom and Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths
Happen in the universe of Young Justice ie are they canon for young justice? That's all greetings and sorry for my english is not my first language

Greg responds...


Here's a list of the complete YJ Canon:

YOUNG JUSTICE (Season One) - 26 episodes (101-126)

YOUNG JUSTICE: INVASION (Season Two) - 20 episodes (201-220)

YOUNG JUSTICE LEGACY video game - including Red Arrow's journal

YOUNG JUSTICE compantion comic book series - 27 issues (0-25 plus a free comic book day story)
--All of those issues (except for the free comic book day issue) have been collected in four trade paperbacks:
--*YOUNG JUSTICE, VOLUME ONE (collects 0-6)

That's it. Period. Nothing else is canon to our series until Season Three (i.e. YOUNG JUSTICE: OUTSIDERS) hits the air (or until we get more comics).

Hey, following up from a question from years ago. Someone mentioned that you said Starfire was a character that you were thinking about for season 3 and you replied asking when you ever said that. You said it in this interview with GamerFitNation at the 8:24 mark https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=YQnptAVvcVs

Greg responds...

Starfire has always been on our list. Raven too. Cyborg. Etc. All the obvious teen heroes. Given enough time and episodes/issues, etc., we'll get to literally all of them in one way or another. No promises of when or in what season.

Hi Greg, hope your day is going well, just wanted to say thanks for creating and producing all of these great shows, comics, and novels, and thank you very much for taking time out of your probably busy schedule to answer fan's questions.
1. How long does it take to make an episode of an animated series, like Spectacular Spider-Man or Young Justice?
2. Is Aquaman's son really named Artur, or was that just a typo in the video game?
3. What would it take to relaunch the Young Justice comic book series?
And I know these are probably spoilery, so I won't ask, but Zatanna and Rocket were some of my favorite characters in season one. Really hoping you guys get enough episodes to bring a resolution to the Zatanna/Zatara/Dr.Fate storyline, and we can finally find out who Rocket'a husband is! But if neither of these end up happening, I'm sure we'll get a fantastic Season 3 story from you guys no matter what. Ecstatic that YJ is back!

Greg responds...

1. Depends what you mean. You see, no one makes a SINGLE episode. From coming up with the springboard for the story, all the way through post-production, until it's in the can, it takes somewhere from between ten and thirteen months, depending on the schedule.

2. Artur is correct.

3. It would help if a lot of people bought electronic versions of the issues already published, either on the DC App, Comixology or iTunes.

How different was writing Young Justice: Legacy compared to writing for animation/comics?

Greg responds...

I didn't write YJL. I made suggestions on the story, a few course corrections and edited the dialogue.

I think someone asked a question similar to this, but I just wanted to ask about something specific in case it doesn't get answered there:
1) You've recommended buying Young Justice DVDs and comics to help show continued fan interest, so will buying the Young Justice: Legacy video game help as well?
2) If yes, where would you recommend purchasing it? I assume it would be best to buy digitally, but is there a place where the royalties would go to WB?

Greg responds...

1. It would have way back when. I honestly don't know if it would still help now. It can't hurt. And it's got a great canon story.

2. I don't know enough about video games to answer. Just be sure you're not buying it second hand, I guess.

1). You say to fans a good way of showing they want Young Justice to return, is to buy the comics, DVDs, and the game (and the toys still?), but how much would fans have to buy for this to happen? Is there a goal to reach maybe or perhaps just enough to get noticed by DC/WB that it's still something that people want more of?

I would think they'd be more interested in what was selling when the show was still on the air, because that's obviously what Mattel was looking at for it to pull its funding.

2). If by miracle, YJ does get brought back by Netflix, where would the funding come from? Having Mattel as a backer makes it look like it couldn't be made without it. Not every Warner Bros. Animation show has a backer (unless there's a silent contributer), and most of the Netflix shows have a backer (helped by broadcasters who air it around the world), so what would happen with YJ? Would it just be supported by Warner (and DC), itself? And I guess, Netflix.

Greg responds...

Well, this is all largely moot now, but...

1. I never had a NUMBER or AMOUNT. It takes more to get a company's attention after a show is off the air, then it takes to keep a show on the air. The other thing to keep in mind is that buying toys (or whatever) second-hand does nothing to get a company's attention. So, for example, I was not advocating buying YJ toys this year, because those toys were off the market. Any purchases were second sales and does nothing for Mattel or WB or DC's bottom line.

2. So YJ's coming back, but I don't know where it will air. The term "backer" doesn't really fit, either. It's about MONEY. Money to produce the first two seasons of YJ came from Mattel and Cartoon Network. (Mostly from Mattel.) When Mattel pulled out, the money from CN wasn't enough to produce the series. Period. For season three, Warner Bros itself is paying for it, for now. They have confidence, I guess, that wherever it winds up and whatever merchandise they may or may not eventually release or license, they'll still make a profit. That's based on what the fans proved over the last few years.
