I was just hoping you could clear something up for me.
1) You previously mentioned that Wally only knew about the plan because Artemis "insisted" he be told. That would seem to suggest that Nightwing approached her and asked her to fake her death and do this mission behind Wally's back, and she put her foot down on that idea. Is that really how it went down?
2) If so, does Wally know that his "best friend" wanted to leave him out of the loop and let him believe she was really dead? If he does know, I don't see how he could ever call Dick his friend or trust him ever again. And even if Dick and Artemis kept the fact that Dick didn't originally want to tell him about the mission from him, I don't see how I could ever buy them as friends anymore. Or even think that they were ever friends in the first place as I see no beneficial reason as to why Dick wouldn't want to tell Wally. I mean, wouldn't it complicate the mission more? I can't believe Wally would be too happy with Kaldur if he thought he killed Artemis for real.
1. I don't want to put it in such black and white terms, but basically: more or less.
2. Wally and Dick were friends to the end. Which is OBVIOUSLY not to say they never argued or disagreed or went through a rough patch. Justify it or be disgusted by it in whatever manner you choose, but their friendship is just a hard fact. For me, loyalty and a certain understanding of the business they're in counts for a lot. A good ultimate result doesn't hurt either.
Dear greg,does artemis want to go back to her life with wally, or she wants to stay as tigress or something like that?
I think at the time of "The Fix" she was conflicted. Now, I think she'd give anything to get Wally back.
Hello, Mr. Greg Weisman,
"The Fix" was a well-done episode and kept me guessing every other moment. Here are my thoughts below.
Topics of Thought on "The Fix":
Reach Apocalypse…Averted?: By the end of this episode, I felt that's what most likely happened. But then again, nothing concrete has been shown to tell the audience that Green Beetle is pure good. What would really shock me is if Green Beetle was actually later shown to be a bad guy; making him a scorpion of sorts. Heck, I'd be surprised if a later episode is called that name…
Artemis' Self-Doubt: Hearing everything she's been thinking to herself, I bet all Artemis fans might be reasonably worried. It would be a shame if she actually decides to become a villain for real. But then again, it would defeat the whole point of what she's been establishing for herself in Season One, and more importantly, Wally would be heart-broken if she defects…
Secrets and Lies = Divided They Fall?: With at least two more members knowing the truth about Aqualad and Artemis as well as the resulting frustration, I fear it might lead to an episode that might actually bear the name. The addition of Miss Martian's life being in jeopardy doesn't help much either.
The Additive: Well-explained… though I thought it would be some kind of mind-control drug to turn the public against the Justice League… I might be wrong, but I'll wait to see what else happens.
Tula, Aqualad's Mental Defense Mechanism? = What the heck was that all about?! I thought that Tula would be shown in some kind of flashback, but that was just crazy beyond belief. On the other hand, Aqualad is on the slow road to recovery; I just hope that as he does, he doesn't accidentally slip about Artemis or himself to his biological father…
Thanks for taking the time to read my thoughts.
You're welcome. Seems like you'd like a gig titling episodes.
What was the creative incentive for writing "The Fix" personally?
I think the curb appeal was going inside Kaldur's devastated mind. Plus, the Artemis internal monologue.
RAIN OF THE GHOSTS, BOOK ONE UPDATE: NICE THINGS FAMOUS PEOPLE HAVE SAID #3
In my on-going shameless attempt to maintain buzz about my new novel, RAIN OF THE GHOSTS, due out in stores and on-line on December 3rd, 2013 (but available for pre-order NOW on Amazon, etc.), I'm going to direct you to Rain's page on Amazon:
They've posted some quotations from a handful of folks, who have already read the book. More often than not, these are merely partial quotes, so I'm going to post the full quotation here over the next few days. Next up:
"A thoroughly entertaining joyride." -Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of Rot and Ruin
I've never met Mr. Mayberry, so this is the first quotation that came from a stranger.
Here's the full quotation:
"RAIN OF THE GHOSTS is quirky, clever and downright creepy. A thoroughly entertaining joyride into the world of the fantastic." -Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of ROT & RUIN and ASSASSIN'S CODE
Salivating yet? (Ugh. That was over the top, huh?)
Does your version of Despro have telepathic powers like in the comics, or can he do anything other than paralize with his third-eye?
If he does have telepathic powers, why didn't he "hear" the conversation between Miss Martian and Guardian?
Was it because he didn't have his third-eye open at the time?
You're assuming that his paralytic power isn't telepathic in nature.
You're assuming that all telepaths operate on the exact same frequency.
Neither of those are safe assumptions.
If each member of the Team on Young Justice were to be replaced with a character from Marvel Comics (regardless of which universe they are from) who would act as their potential equivalents (in terms of similar skills/abilities), who would they be and why (in one sentence per character)?
Why are you asking me this?
If this is an exercise that interests you, go for it. But I have no inside information on something so arbitrary.
Guys, please, I appreciate that you want to have fun with these kinds of things, but that's not what ASK GREG is for. Creating make-work for me - because, I can only assume, you think I'll enjoy it - is not going to get a positive response here. And all it really does is clog the queue.
1. Do the inhibitor collars also take away invulnerability when they are used on individuals with super strength?
2. Does Black Beetle's strength come from the suit or is it a superpower from his own species?
3. Who was the person in the Star Labs coat besides Eduardo Dorado Sr. in Cornered?
4. Is Star Labs a public or private organization?
5. Who storyboard/animated the shot of Deathstroke with his sword between his shoulders in the Fix? I was actually a little intimidated.
1. Depends on the nature and origins of said invunerability.
2. Mostly the scarab/suit. Though he is a fairly large specimen, and he has training.
3. I think you're referring to Dr. David Wilcox.
5. Oh, I'm sorry. I don't recall. It was pretty cool though. Brandon might remember. You could ask him.
Which fandom do you honestly appreciate the most:
1- Gargoyles fans
2- Spectacular Spider-Man fans
3- Young Justice fans
4- Greg Weisman fans
See, now, the Hulk is more powerful because the madder he gets, the stronger he gets. But the Thing can still beat him if he keeps his wits about him.
Were Ivo or Morrow ever members of S.T.A.R. Labs?
Morrow wasn't. Haven't thought about Ivo in that context. Honestly, I haven't given any thought to when S.T.A.R. was founded.
