So yesterday, I took a brief - about four hours - side trip to an alternate (or parallel) universe. My counterpart in this universe, I assume, changed places with me, as I did not see him there. (And I also didn't see him here when I got back.) As far as I could tell, everything was EXACTLY the same in that universe as in this universe with one exception: the word for "pineapple" over there is "palm-apple". I brought back a 6 oz. can of "Dole's Palm-Apple Juice" as proof of my trip. I noticed no other differences, though of course in only four hours, I hardly had the time for a thorough investigation into every aspect of history, science, entertainment, current events, etc. But if it weren't for the pineapple/palm-apple thing, I'm not sure I would have even noticed the shift.
It makes me wonder if we're shifting all the time. But that the differences between universes are so subtle, we miss it.
Oh, and the juice tasted exactly the same too. And there's no difference visually either. A palm-apple there looks and tastes exactly like a pineapple here. It's just the name.
"Darkest" was some episode. I must say, Dick and Wally'a behaviour during the episode has split the fans' opinion of them into two, with the fans defending one and criticising the other. I must congratulate you for the nature of the argument. Both Wally and Dick had valid points and glaring flaws,which just serves to underline how human they are. In the end, I found it difficult to place the blame entirely to either one of them, especially since it's clear that the stress of keeping the secret is getting to both of them in a very bad way.
Bravo, Greg. I think whoever wrote the episode deserves a pat on the back.
Thanks. And that writer would be my brother Jon Weisman.
Did it amuse you that the main villain in season six of Dexter was named Travis Marshall?
It REALLY did! Or in any case, it freaked me out a little.
1) Did Dick and Rocket date? (Zatanna seemed to suggest this in issue #20.)
2) Why was everyone so surprised that they were kissing?
3) I thought M'Gann covering Beast Boy's eyes was cute. But I was confused by the expression of amusement on Batgirl's face. What's up with that?
4) What is wrong with Nightwing? Zatanna, Raquelle, even Barbara... They're all awesome! Anyone of them would be entirely worthy of a long term committment. (Maybe Barbara is smiling because she knows better than to become another notch in Dick's belt?)
5) Initially, Superboy and Miss Martian had some difficulty separating their personal and professional relationships. During the five year gap, do you imagine that Wally and Artemis were as successful at checking their relationship at the door as Connor and M'Gann?
2. I assume you're talking about the Zatanna/Nightwing kiss, right? The reactions varied. Some were surprised, some were not. As to those that were surprised, you don't know WHAT surprised them, the kiss itself or the timing, placement and intensity of said kiss.
3. Read on.
4. Read on.
5. I'm sure there were bumps in the road. But they managed.
Mr. Greg Weisman,
The second season of Young Justice may either conclude or is close to reaching its conclusion by the time you respond to this, but I wanted to ask you this question.
Considering all the individual events that have been happening through out the second season and their seemingly apparent (and somewhat hinted) connection to that state of the world in 2056, would you say that the way that these events connect to Bart's future is almost like that of a spider's web, kind of like threads?
If you like.
Is Rocket pregnant?
The reason I ask is because I got the vibe that she was having a baby shower before I got any indication that she was having a "bridal shower" (which I, as a guy, know nothing about). I know she's engaged, but is she also pregnant?
I'm not sure where you got BABY shower out of that at all.
As for whether or not she's pregnant, c'mon: HOW COULD THAT BE ANYTHING BUT A SPOILER REQUEST?
I mean it's a perfect example.
Let's say hypothetically that she isn't, and I tell you that she isn't. Then the next time, if someone asks if another character is pregnant, and I refuse to answer, than I've just given away that that other character IS pregnant.
Having said all that, you might check out our companion comic, especially issue #20, for more clues.
Many people in the Yj fandom dislike Lagoon Bpy. While a majority of the dislike is due to the fact that he 'broke up Supermartian' (as untrue as that is) a lot of it is for his cocky-ness. Was this trait something you put into him because you believed he would be trying to outdo all of Aquaman's previous trainees (eg. Aqualad, Aquagirl, maybe Tempest)? Is his desire to be on alpha, take down Nightwing in a spar, be better than superboy, all a ploy because he is filling the shoes of great people?
1. This might be past tense by the time you get to it but: (Do you think it will be / Was it) difficult to give as much character development in Season 2 as you did in Season 1 since there is a much bigger cast?
2. What was the point of the charm allowing Robin, Aqualad, and Kid Flash to see Artemis's original self? I mean, I know it's a common thing to do in shows, but it seems particularly risky in this case (e.g. someone else could have been there, Aqualad might slip and call her blondie, Zantanna figuring it out, etc) and no reward, since they are all there and can see what she looks like with the charm and should have no need to see her original self.
3. Superboy mentioned that he isn't immortal, but doesn't age externally. Does that mean he is aging internally and will eventually have the problems therein, or just that he can be killed but will never die of old age if he isn't?
1. ASKED AND ANSWERED.
2. It is what it is.
3. Watch "Earthlings" again. He states things very clearly.
It's seems that many characters from the first season in Young Justice are becoming the things they didn't want to - ex. Artemis is posing as a villain, Robin is using people, M'gann is losing control. Was this planned (most likely, I'm assuming, with your and Brandon's in-depth writing) or just a coincidetial thing?
Most everything was planned in tremendous detail.
This is a question about the Gargoyles episode "Bushido."
In the episode, Taro had ninjas in his employs. Does this mean that ninja clans of feudal Japan survived to modern times in the Gargoyle universe (instead of being wiped out by Oda Nobunaga)? Or were they just martial artists in ninja costumes?
SPOILER REQUEST. NO COMMENT.
