Considering Artemis's hair is blonde, but her eyebrows are black, what color would you suppose her eyelashes are?

Greg responds...

I don't know. Ask a biologist, I guess.

Before I asked why Superboy didn't have any mirrors, to which you said he doesn't want any. So...

Why doesn't Superboy want any mirrors?

Greg responds...

Doesn't care to look into them.

Did Tula ever have feelings for Aqualad before dating Garth?

Greg responds...

Not the kind of feelings that Kaldur might have preferred. Of course, if he had expressed some of his feelings to her BEFORE it was too late, who knows?

I know you've said you can't actually show LGBT characters on the show, but I think I saw you said that there was one who was just closeted. Would you ever "out" this character outside the show itself? Or would you not be allowed to? I think it's pretty horrible that you aren't allowed to have LGBT characters, it's the 21st Century and considering how isolating being young and gay can be, with no role models it can be incredibly difficult! But I understand this is not your fault.

Greg responds...

We show LGBT characters on the show all the time. We just can't acknowledge it. There's a difference. And I never said the LGBT characters on the show were closeted. I never said anything one way or the other about whether or not they were closeted - or at least, I don't remember saying anything about it. A character like Marie Logan can be out as far as she's concerned, without mentioning it out loud on the series.

And, there. I think I've just answered your question. (See also: Lexington.)

Would you ever trade away your writing talents for genuine super powers? Or would that not be a fair trade?

Greg responds...

No. Such as they are, I'll stick with what abilities I've got.

hi, first i wanted to tell you that i love young justice.
but i had a question about the terms meta gene and meta human. i learn greek at school (old greek). and i learned the word μετα (sounds like meta). it means "with" or "before". and i was wondering, does this has to do something with the terms "meta human" and "meta gene" in young justice?

Greg responds...

I honestly don't know. These were both existing DC Universe terms that we brought into the series from the comics. It's a really good question though. When I think of the term meta-fiction, it certainly means something entirely different to me than the way DC (and we) have been using meta. I don't know who came up with the term in the first place, but I wonder if they weren't confusing meta- with mega- or something. But maybe I'm missing something.

YOUNG JUSTICE: INVASION: Episode #218: "Intervention": Credits:

Posting the credits for the latest episode here at ASK GREG to compensate for how minute they are and how quickly they zip by on the air. Please note, that I'm just cutting, pasting and reformatting the final credits from a document. It's possible that as the episode was posted, changes, mistakes, additions, etc. were made for the version that aired...

I was just reading through the recently answered questions, and something struck me as a little odd. You seem to be interested in the specifics of things that are activly shown on-screen (eg. a charactors background in gymnastics as opposed to acrobatics, and how that difference is portrayed), yet there is an "Ask Greg helper" who answers questions for you with your quote "I'm not personally intetested in those type of specifics" which was your answer to a comoletley different kind of question (probably something like "what is Superboy's favorite type of pie")....my question is:
How much discression do you give your helpers to answer questions with responses that a) conveys your personal opinion AND b) you have not already answered and was never revealed in the show?
Specifically, I am refering to a question about how much water Aqualad's pack holds...how does your helper know your not intetested in that? Was there a meeting in which this topic was discussed?
The reason your stories are so good is because you pay so much attention to the details of things on-screen (in my opinion, anyway), and that seemed like a perfectly legitimate question to something regularly appearing on-screen, and given that, would most likley intetest you, at least a little (ie. I would think that you would write Aqualad keeping in mind there cold only possibly be a finite amount of water in his pack).

An Ask Greg Helper responds...

[A NOTE FROM AN ASK GREG HELPER: You are operating under a false assumption. We will only answer a question if Greg has answered that same question in the past. This was the case with the question about Aqualad's Water-Bearers. Here is the full context.]

DC Hero writes...

"How much liter's can Aqualad's water bearers hold."

Greg responds...

"I'm personally not interested in being that specific."

So I've finished outlining the second book in the RAIN OF THE GHOSTS series. Now, I need to start writing Chapter One. So, of course, I'm here at ASK GREG instead, procrastinating. (Hey, that first blank page is VERY intimidating!)

Anyway, as part of my process, I broke the entire book down on index cards: SIX HUNDRED NINETY-THREE index cards to be exact!!! They completely cover a huge six foot tall bulletin board, a decent-sized table and nearly an entire pool table. They're multi-colored. I think they're very pretty.

I've also transcribed those cards into a document, because, frankly, carrying around a bulletin board, a table and a pool table was getting SO unwieldy. This document, which also contains research and other notes, is ONE HUNDRED THIRTY-SEVEN pages long!!

See why I'm intimidated?

YOUNG JUSTICE: INVASION: EPISODE: 218: "Intervention": Premieres!

It's now or never: can the Team rescue and redeem Blue Beetle - over the somewhat impressive objections of Green Beetle and the Reach?!! We're in the home stretch, now, folks. Every episode counts toward the ultimate future of the human race!!

Watch "Intervention" on DC Nation, this coming Saturday, March 2nd, 2013 (and rerunning Sunday, March 3rd, 2013), along with another episode of Green Lantern and more DC Nation Super-Hero shorts. For times, check local listings. But don't miss it!
