As I have fallen in love with the Runaways, my questions shall be focused on them.
1) Ethical issues of their treatment at Star Labs- there are consent laws and various other examples of red tape that meant that Star Labs would need parental consent, along with the teens', in order to perform experiments. Was consent given, or did Star Labs keep the teens illegally?
2) How aware was the League/team of what was happening with the teens in Star Labs?
3)Relating to Tye's comment in 'The Hunt' about Nightwing only asking them to join the team then; why didn't Nightwing ask them if they wished to join the team earlier? (I can see some reasons, such as lack of control, but lack of experience shouldn't inhibit them as the team is partly to train teen heroes).
Thank you for your time!
1. Consent was provided by Eduardo Dorado Sr., Shelly Longshadow, Virgil's parents and Nate's foster-parents. Asami refused to provide any information about her background, beyond her name and the obvious fact that she was from Japan.
2. Yes. Keep in mind, the kids were being rigorously tested, but they weren't being tortured or experimented upon. It was far from ideal, but all concerned thought it was a necessary evil.
3. Nightwing may very well have asked them to join the Team as a matter of course, when Wilcox felt he had conducted all the necessary tests to make sure their powers weren't a danger to themselves or others (i.e. outside the kids' own control - as Nate/Neutron's had been).
I loved seeing the closet full of board games at Wayne Manor.
1. Was this in your script, or was it Chris Jones' idea?
2. Did the games belong to Dick, or were they from when Bruce was a kid? Or some combination of the two?
3. Do Bruce, Dick, and Alfred ever have time to play all those board games?
1. It was in my script.
2. Alfred bought them all.
Just a quick Queen Bee/ Bialya question- Bee, of course, presents herself as a monarch and I believe you've previously stated that if asked she'd describe Bialya as a constitutional monarchy (but that just about anyone else would call it a straight-up dictatorship). So is she the actual, hereditary monarch of Bialya, or is that propaganda she uses to make her regime look more legitimate?
A little from column A; a little from column B.
1. Is the reason for Jeff Bennett voicing T.O. Morrow and all his (male) androids a shout out to Star Trek? I know Brent Spiner played Data, his "brothers" and their creator.
2. What made you and your team decide to interpret Mongul and Despero the way they appear in the series? Despero is a galactic gladiator rather than a tyrant and Mongul isn't pure evil or petty as he tends to be portrayed.
1. Not particularly. Although it probably springs from the same impulse.
2. Despero has been so many things over the years, that we felt we had the freedom to make him what we needed. As for Mongul, my first exposure to the character was his original Wein/Starlin appearances. I believe we were consistent with those.
With the appearance of Dr. Cross in the series, I was curious about Dr. Mid-Nite. Does the original Dr. Mid-Nite, Charles McNider, exist in Earth 16? If so, was he ever part of the JSA and All-Star Squadron?.... and how long did he serve?
2. Yes and yes.
3. He joined the All-Star Squadron upon its formation in December of 1941. Then in 1945, when the A-SS disbanded, he joined the Justice Society of America and stayed a member until it disbanded in 1951.
Regarding Dexter, I still think Deb poisoned herself. I think having Hannah admit it was her was the actual red herring.
Hannah took the blame because Dexter had already betrayed her. What's done is done. Dexter wouldn't have believed her even if she said the truth. Why even bring it up?
She was already planning her escape. She doesn't need Dexter's help or acceptance. Now that she escaped, I'm guessing she will get revenge on Dexter, and when Dexter finds out about Deb's deception, it will be a turning point in the 8th season. You think this is plausible or do you think I'm reading too much into it?
P.S. I loved the season, but I would have liked to see a little more development on the fact that Debra helped Dexter kill Jordan Chase. Dexter should have brought it up every time she complained about his killing.
That thought has crossed my mind too.
Hey Greg a timeline question or threerather.
1. You have detailed timelines for Young Justice and Gargoyls, do you do this for everything you do even when you havent built the universe from scratch like in your Captain Atom comics or WITCH?
2. When did you start this trait?
3. You have time and time again noted that YJ has no "canon year" and that 2010 worked for Year Zero as a math thing. So does that mean season two being in 2016 by that reckoning was a coincidence?
1. Not everything, no. I have a Captain Atom timeline from way back, but I'm sure it has no relevance to current DC continuity anymore. I don't think I ever did a WITCH timeline in the strictest sense, but I did make an effort to keep track of the backstories, etc.
2. In elementary school.
3. Heh heh heh.
Peter David was kind enough to forward this link:
#2 out of 25. Not too shabby!
Dear Greg Wesiman,
1. I am a super super fan of most of your shows, only being fourteen my favorite is Young Justice by far it has captivated me into the world of DC Comics (I still like Marvel better :) ) in all seriousness what can we do to stop the Weisman curse, because it is there.
2. This is not really a question but still thank you for all the fan service I really do like Blue Beetle randomly taking off his shirt it makes my Saturday Mornings awesomer.
1. There is no curse. Please DESIST from advancing that rumor. There are specific circumstances behind the success - or lack there of - of every series I've worked on. MOST series don't last forever. I've had good runs of varying length on a number of shows. That's it.
2. You're welcome, I guess.
Hello Mr. Greg Weisman,
"The Hunt" was a good episode. Here are my thoughts about the episode and a an unrelated question
Thought #1 - I was happy that the Reach were seemingly exposed for their true intentions. Still, with Godfrey, I 'm still a little unsure. I'd imagine that Godfrey is probably some undercover agent working for Apokolips, but I'm going to wait and see.
Thought #2 - Thanks to Arsenal's behavior, he's off the Team and with the Runaways. I suppose the only good thing he's done is tell the Runaways about what Lex did to him and the true purpose of the rescue mission. I hope he doesn't do anything crazy…
Thought #3 - I'm glad that Nightwing and Miss Martian are dealing with their mistakes and I'm glad that Miss Martian is not angry at Nightwing about the whole undercover assignment that Kaldur and Artemis are doing. Still, I wonder how everyone might react if Nightwing eventually confesses the truth to everyone?
My question - Which possible character(s) from Marvel Comics would be similar (in terms of background, abilities, etc.) to your interpretation of Arsenal (the real Roy Harper) and why?
Thanks for taking the time to read this posting.
Though I'm happy to read your responses to our episodes, and I don't mind answering questions, PLEASE, PLEASE stop giving me essay assignments.
Why would I be able to answer this any better than you?
Artemis seems a little unhappy with her false death, the disguise and all the situation she is in, mainly because she liked the life she had with Wally. Then, if she is so unsatisfied, why did she accept this mission and put all her happiness of a normal life in risk?
I am not complaining. I am loving the episodes, but I wanted to know what she had in mind when she accepted the mission.
I think she STATES her reasons at various moments in the series. At one point, you literally get to hear her thoughts on the subject. I don't know what else I could add to that.
Hi Greg! I was wondering, does the fact that Red Arrow's house (that we see in 'Salvage') looks a lot alike Red Hood's in "Batman: Under the Red Hood" hold any significance, was it a coincidence or is it spoiler territory? Thanks!
Do you mean Red Arrow's Washington D.C. apartment, which was the same one he was using in "Auld Acquaintance"?
I don't recall if it was reused or not, but if so, I'm sure it was done to save manhours.
Were there other superheroes that existed in the Spectacular Spider-Man universe? Like, Avengers, Fantastic Four, X-Men etc.
In theory, yes.
Not the Avengers, not yet. (If you mean as a team. Some of the individual members existed.)
The Fantastic Four were in business.
The X-Men had also not yet been formalized as a team. Though Professor X had recently opened his school.
I've answered this in more detail previously. Check the archives.
I loved The Hunt! It was so good to see the runaways again, and Arsenal was awesome throughout the episode... though I do have a small problem with the scene with him and Nightwing...
I'm not saying Dick was wrong to take him off the the Team- he and Karen had good points. As much as I love the character, Roy doesn't always hold the Team's best interests at heart, and would have probably been a huge liability if he'd been allowed to stay on the Team in his current mental condition. My problem, however, was with how Dick decided to handle the issue- in front of potential teammates and allies (he ended up alienating the runaways) and basically letting a loose cannon with severe PTSD walk about in the open. Arsenal has serious issues and needs help, and isolation probably isn't going to do him any good. Pardon my rudeness when I say this, but did no one think of giving him counselling or something of the like before letting him join the Team?
You're assuming that no one thought to counsel him beforehand, but I've already addressed that. Check the archives.
As to Nightwing's timing, I think it's clear he made a mistake. It happens. He's under a lot of pressure, and sometimes people under pressure make the wrong call.
where did Demona's tiara come from?
SPOILER REQUEST. NO COMMENT.
I just recently became aware you worked on the series 'Disney's Bonkers', which I spent many teenage afternoons watching. First off thank you for whatever contribution you made, I enjoyed that show. I haven't seen the showing years, but knowing your love of Shakespeare, I'm kinda surprised you didn't have a character called off. Dogberry. ;)
I helped develop Bonkers in my role as Director of Development at Walt Disney Television Animation. That is, I helped develop the original Bonkers/Miranda series, i.e. the episodes that wound up airing last, after the Bonkers/Piquel episodes. But I wasn't the producer or even a writer on the series, so I didn't name any characters.
In the comic issue #7 Artemis tries to be a hero on her own
1.Why is it that before Artemis became Green Arrows protege her costume matched his?
2.Is it just a coincident that she choose green?
1. ASKED AND ANSWERED.
1) Did La'gaan know Jason Todd?
2) Did La'gaan date anyone before M'gann?
3) How did he come up with the name Lagoon Boy?
4) In the comic, YJ#14, Aqualad said that La'gaan, Blubber, etc. were former classmates. But they were a wide range of ages. La'gaan was 12 at the time, was he at the same learning level as Kaldur? Basically what I'm wondering here is if they were actually in the same class or Kaldur just meant they were fellow pupils at the Conservatory.
1. SPOILER REQUEST. NO COMMENT.
3. His own real first name inspired it. Plus he saw Creature from the Black Lagoon.
4. Fellow pupils, though they may have had a class or two in common.
Hi there! Greg I have a little request more than a question for you...and since you could easily answer me that you could but won't do it, I would like you to see it as a challenge;
Could you describe how would it be the last scene of the last episode of Hello, Megan? Please??? And thank you :)
No, I'm sorry. But I don't know it off the top of my head. So I'd have to figure it out, and I don't figure out that kind of stuff lightly. So it would take time. And I don't have that time. And, as I've said here before, I'm not looking for Ask Greg posters to come up with CHALLENGES for me. It's incredibly presumptuous, for starters, and it puts me in the awkward position of having to write up something like THIS, which makes me look like a jerk for not rising to your challenge. Thanks.
I'd like to congratulate you on finding a publisher for "Rain of the Ghosts" and getting a publishing date established. I'll be looking out for it in the bookstores come early December.
I remember hearing that that story was a radio play at one of the past Gatherings; presumably it was something you conceived of on your own rather than something you were put in charge of, like "Gargoyles" by Disney, since you're able to submit it to publication.
I wish you all the better since I've written a fantasy story that I'm hoping to find a publisher for (I found once a few years ago, but it didn't work out); alas, I can't recommend it to you when I do get it published, since the Arthurian legend (and other legends, such as Norse mythology) plays a major role in it, and I remember you said that you're keeping away from modern treatments of that so that they won't contaminate your vision. But it definitely makes me appreciate your joy in getting your story published all the more.
Rain of the Ghosts was originally created (by me) when I was in development at DreamWorks Televsion Animation. The series was developed with a team of great individuals, including John Skeel, Lydia Marano and Jon Weisman. We sold it to Nick, and I wrote an hour pilot. (And it was that pilot that we did as a radio play at the second Gathering.) Then the deal with Nick fell through, and Rain sat on the shelf for a while.
But I couldn't get it out of my head, so I went to Jeffrey Katzenberg, and he agreed to let me have the publishing rights. And I wrote a novel. And I tried to sell it. And I failed.
About a decade plus passes, and I was done with Young Justice, and I decided to revisit Rain. So I did a rewrite and sent it out again to my managers and to an acquaintance who is an editor at St. Martin's Press. Three weeks later, they bought it, as well as the second book in the nine-book series. It's very exciting. And I'm just having a blast writing the second book.
Hello Mr. Weisman,
Sorry to hear about Young Justice not being renewed for a third season. I really enjoyed its entire run, just as I enjoyed the two seasons your previous shows were given. I look forward to the next two we get as well.
I'm kidding, of course; I certainly hope you get more than two seasons in whatever project you work on next. It is frustrating, however, that shows of the caliber that you produce are consistently robbed of a longer run. No matter what happens in the future, I know your fans can rely on you to give us some quality entertainment.
On that note, consider your book bought, by the way. I very much look forward to reading it.
My question to you is this: Have you gotten a chance to see the film Cloud Atlas? I ask mainly because Keith David has a few supporting roles in it, which i found very enjoyable. From my own family and friends' reactions to it, I'd say it is rather a "hate-it-or-love-it" film, but I liked it, and I'd think you might, too.
Thank you, and good luck.
I didn't see it. I did read the book some time ago. There was a lot I loved about it, but a few things I had problems with. Enough that I didn't run out to see the movie.
Why was Mal living in the Cave? Doesn't he have his own place?
He didn't at the time Mount Justice was destroyed.
As for why... how about FREE RENT and NO COMMUTE.
Jaime's house looks like it's from a nice upper middle class neighborhood. Does his dad still own an auto repair place on earth-16? What does Mrs. Reyes do? Does Milagro exist on earth-16?
I also noticed that Tye lives in an area almost opposite of where Jaime lives. Was this contrast made on purpose?
I'm not going to go into details about characters we have not yet been introduced to. Let alone whether or not they exist on Earth-16. It's all SPOILER REQUESTS. NO COMMENT.
We did want to contrast Tye and Jaime.
Was that a Stephanie Brown missing poster in #25?
Maybe. You might have to ask Chris Jones.
Hi Greg, I'll get to the point. I was re-watching 'Depths' and wondered:
1-When Superboy told M'gann he didn't tell the League about her abusing her powers because he thought he mattered enought to her to make her stop, and she clearly didn't stop untill what happend to Aqualad. Does it mean she doesn't care that much for him?
1a-Regarding her relationship with Lagoon Boy and her ended relationship with Superboy, I can get that she loves them both but whom is she in-love with?
2-At the end of the episode, when Artemis asked Nightwing about he got the Glamour Charm from Zatanna he answered 'We have a history'...my question, and considering there's only 4 eps left to air (at least while I'm asking this questions) is that ALL that will be told about Dick and Zatanna's relationship during the 5 years gasp?
Last but not least, and I bet you get this one alot (apologies for that) How do you feel about the cancelaton of the show? It's certainly one of the very few good showzs on CN (in my opinion) I can't believe it won't get a 3th Season!
Thanks for your time.
1a. I think it's clear she's not "in love" with La'gaan.
2. There's a touch more in the comics, but, yes.
3. Not cancelled. Just not picked up. But obviously, I'm not thrilled. Would have loved to have done more.
