How old was Jason Todd in the hologram/picture that was shown in Depths?
Why did you decided to include Jason in Young Justice instead of skipping over him like in Batman the animated series?
1. Not sure about the exact date on the hologram.
2. We're not basing our decisions on OTHER adaptations.
1) Reading the Stargate bible, have ever considered a Star Trek animated series? I know Paramount is very strict on that property.
2) Will you ever do another series of your own creation?
Thank you very much. Have a HAPPY NEW YEAR!
1. I'd love to do one, but no one's asked me. (Keep in mind, I was asked to develop Stargate. I don't just go out and independently develop series based on properties that somebody else owns.)
2. Again, I'd love to, but no one's bought anything original that I've pitched in a VERY long time.
1. How old is Brucely?
2. I think he was confirmed to be Artemis' dog - did she pick him out or was he a gift from Wally?
3. Has Brucely met other members of the Team?
1. I think you'd need to ask Stephanie.
2. SPOILER REQUEST. NO COMMENT.
3. I'm sure he has.
Looking more and more forward to the tail end of this season based on the new trailer. Love Cap'n Marvel! LOVE STATIC! (If that's who he is of course) wink wink
1) About the storytelling of the series. I don't know if this was mentioned before, but I enjoy eps that are based on source material. Be it homage or adaptation similar to the Secrets and Disordered eps, I've looked at season two. My first discovery was the subtitle of the season possibly being influenced by a dc comics crossover event (that I believe you were involved with) called Invasion. There's also an ep about the Flash family introducing Impulse, a homage to another dc crossover event called Bloodlines, which did introduce new heroes and dealt with an alien invasion. So, were these intentional? Are there any other homages other than I guess Rimbor?
2) I noticed that Vandal Savage seems to be dressed in a uniform that looks similar to a Civil War Confederate uniform, is this your or Brandon's or Phil's idea?
3) In the episode Revelation, it seemed Joker knew at the very least something of the Light's plans leading to the events of Season two. Were these villains brainwashed through the Starro chips as well? Also, why were the heroes unable to find out anything from the captured villains?
1. Some are intentional. Some are just sitting in the background radiation of our brains. Some may be coincidences. But the whole thing is an adaptation, so it's hard to separate what's what - and when you ask if there are others, the answer is, of course, yes.
2. The clothing choices were mostly Phil, I'd think. He may have discussed it with Brandon.
3. I think the premise of your question assumes facts not in evidence.
3a. No. Starro-Tech hadn't even been created yet, and in any case, why would they need it?
3b. Why WOULD they be able to find out much of anything?
I have questions about Performance. I really, really liked this episode-- it seems like every Robin adaption has to do a circus episode, but I liked that YJ's version wasn't a rehash of his origin. It's detailed in the comics and hinted at here, and I think that worked out really well.
1. From the context (i.e., "You guys are not on a mission" vs. "Batman's sending us..."), I'm guessing Robin lied to Artemis, Conner, M'gann, and Roy about having League sanction to pursue who was framing Mr. Haly. Is that true?
2. If it is true, did the others ever find out? Were there any repercussions for Dick?
Also, on a tangent: I really love the friendship between Wally and Dick. It's by far my favorite aspect of YJ, and I really enjoyed their dialogue in Darkest. I hope to see more of it!
1. That's pretty much STATED in the episode, yes.
2. SPOILER REQUEST. NO COMMENT.
Hi Greg, I have a question that's been plaguing me and I would love if you could shed some light:
You've previously said that Beast Boy needs to touch or see an animal in order to become it [ergo why he can't become a dinosaur, etc]. So my question is, how does he turn into that monkey-human hybrid? From what I can tell it's not a real animal, and seeing that he can turn into a human, and therefore it's not this form he has no control over, how does he transform into that hybrid?
He evolved it himself.
I only have two questions, hopefully they're not spoiler requests and I'm apologize in advance if they are.
1) Was Black Manta holding back against Kaldur in Downtime?
2) If not, what was his reasoning behind allowing Kaldur to know that he (Manta) knew it was him?
Thanks for answering our questions, I loved Black Manta's Celebrity Hot Tub and I hope you can write more of them in the future. :)
1. Depends what you mean. He wasn't trying to kill him.
2. As opposed to what?
Hey, Greg. Thanks for answering all our insane questions.
Thinking specifically about Young Justice, were there any characters that you meant to be... not very likeable? I mean, obviously the villains are the ones we love to hate, but of the Team or JLA? Like, hypothetically, did you (or anyone else) ever say, 'Ya know what? Lets make [insert character's name here] a complete jerk.'
I'm not looking for validation for people to hate on any one character. I'm just womdering if it was ever part of the thought process in the show.
Thanks a lot!
Not unlikeable, no, but there were characters that we wanted NOT to mesh with the others quite so well. We wanted things like anger-management issues, jealousy issues, insecurity issues, etc. There are, I believe, non-positive qualities to nearly every major character on the show. Hopefully, the audience finds the characters real, and perhaps likes them more for their faults...
1) Did Artemis' poor relationship with her father make her leery of men at all? If so, did this cause her to have a difficult time trusting Wally early in their relationship and/or cause any strain in their relationship early on?
2) You stated that they had ups and downs during their relationship over the 5 year gap. Could you specify a bit? Were there large confrontations or temporary breakups? Or were they just typically small arguments, petty jealousy and/or similar situations?
3) Do Wally's parents know of Artemis' background and are they at all bothered by the fact that she comes from a criminal family?
Thank you so much for taking the time to answer these!
2. I could, but I'm not going to. It's a SPOILER REQUEST.
3a. Not particularly.
Greg, you've mentioned several times here and elsewhere that Wally was a very insecure person during the first season, but I never got that feeling from watching the show. I don't deny that he seemed to be overcompensating for something at times, but I never understood why he felt the need to. In comparison, I thought the show did a great job with Artemis as we saw her tough girl facade crack a few times, and got a good feeling for why she put up that facade.
So my question is; did the show actually explore Wally's insecurities as a person during the first season? And if not, what exactly was he insecure about and why did he feel that way?
He's my favorite character on the show, and I just feel like I missed something somewhere along the way. Thanks!
1. I think we explored it, but whether we succeeded is not for me alone to judge.
2. I think, during Season One, he's insecure about his speed relative to the Flash. He's insecure about the fact that Flash didn't initially want him as a sidekick/protege. He's insecure with girls/women. Etc.
