Hey Greg got a ? based on who's a main character on young justice and who's not (at least in season 2).
It's based on one of the answers you gave today on who's a main character and who's not in Season 2:
Here's the question: http://s8.org/gargoyles/askgreg/latest.php?qid=17951
"So, I'd say the only true leads for the entire season are probably Aqualad, Artemis, Miss Martian, Nightwing and Blue Beetle."
BUT in an interview back in september 2012 with CBR; you stated something that said otherwise:
here's the interview: http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=41210
"I think for us, from day one, we have six leads. And that's huge enough. Now, there are other characters, even from Season 1, who will be recurring characters that we put a spotlight on and give some screen time. Those are characters like Red Arrow and Zatanna - even Captain Marvel and Red Tornado. I don't want to knock them and say that they're tertiary characters. They're not. They're important to our larger tapestry. But I think it was important from day one all the way through the end of Season 2 that we have six leads. They've been the same six leads from the beginning.
It all began with Robin, Aqualad and Kid Flash. Of course, Robin is now Nightwing. But after that first three, we added in Superboy, and then we added Ms. Martian, and then we added Artemis. And then we stopped. We kept adding characters, but I don't think we kept adding lead characters. We sold the show on those six, and those six are still to us largely the focus of the show.
Now you are right that we've expanded a lot in Season 2. We've added Wonder Girl, Batgirl, Blue Beetle, Beast Boy, Lagoon Boy, the new Robin, Impulse...and we're not done adding characters. Some of them will get a spotlight shown on them briefly. Some of them will get a larger role than even that. It will range. But we haven't lost track of our six leads. They've always been the six leads for this show, and that will continue throughout the rest of the series."
Okay I'm confused, are Superboy and Kid Flash leads this season or not? I realize you retconned to a certain degree with Jamie being added in there, in another interview. But is there a specific reason WHY you would claim Conner and Wally are still among the main characters THIS SEASON, when you clearly knew ahead of time what their role was this season? It's also a little silly to claim that when Wally's been absent for 9 episodes straight (something you also knew ahead of time).
I don't mind you lying by omission. I understand that there are certain things the fandom should know and certain things we/they don't need to know. HOWEVER I do find it slightly annoying that you would tell us one thing, then tell us something completely different.
Example, there's been some fans of Kid Flash that have been highly annoyed by his amount of screen time this season. That annoyance is also added on by because he was a lead last year AND because you claimed in the interview the main six would still be the focus this season. I can definitely understand their frustration, at being told something, when that might not be the truth.
So is there a reason you told us that in the interview when you actually knew ahead of time that that wasn't exactly the case? I don't want to make you feel like your the reach ambassador and I'm Godfrey interviewing you claiming you lied (especially when it could be something as simple as you being misquoted), But I'm getting mixed signals on who you were trying to claim was a main character this season and who wasn't.
You're treating this like it's an exact science, when I specifically said it is not.
Looking at it from one point of view, Superboy and Kid Flash are still leads. We still care about their stories in a fundamental way, and in certain episodes they are very important.
But based on the specific story we were telling and the amount of screentime we had to spare, one could argue that they were "downgraded" to support status. And one could definitely argue that Blue Beetle was raised up to lead.
But the point I was making is that we NEVER lost track of the stories of our six original leads EVER. And I think one can see that is true, certainly by the end of "Endgame".
If screentime is the ONLY criteria, then I suppose I was fudging the truth in that old interview. But it's not. So I wasn't.
Did Wally and Artemis adopt the dog in their apartment together, or is it purely just one of theirs?
They got Bruce together.
I realize the Light is in this for the long haul, and they seem to be patient enough to wait for many of their plans to come to fruition, but it's been six years, and they appear to have abandoned the idea of "recovering" Conner.
If it's okay to ask, what was their original plan for Project Kr? From hearing the Light talk amongst themselves, it doesn't sound like they ever intended for him to join the good guys, even if that's something they felt they could take advantage of. Conner's stated purpose of "destroy and replace Superman" wouldn't quite work, being that he can't age, nor does he have Superman's signature powerset. Besides, they seem to want the League alive (and they were developing Starro-Tech, so they would have been able to control Clark anyway).
If they didn't know about Conner's unique traits (forever young/no flight), what would they have done with him once they found out?
Would it be safe to assume that Project Kr wasn't THAT integral to their plans, given that things seem to be running smoothly for them?
You seem to be under the assumption that their plan for Project Kr has changed. It hasn't, not fundamentally. Only the details have changed. Adapt or die, and all that.
Also, I don't think the no-visible-aging thing was part of their plan. That was an accidental side effect of a combination of their growth acceleration process and his Kryptonian DNA.
And, as stated many times before, I'm not interested in hypotheticals.
Finally, no single thread unravels ALL their plans.
Okay so first off- I LOVE YJ! I won't go into details but the past year I spent as an invalid in bed- the first time I smiled after that was because of YJ. It's the best thing that's happened to me in the longest time. Secondly, (as random as this may sound) Tula is my favorite YJ character. In fact, I love her so much that in [the] Instagram [app] I RP as her in a DCRP group. Okay here are my 3 questions:
1.) If you were to pick a word to describe Tula's personality- what word would it be. (Ex. bubbly, smart, wise, ect.)
2.) After Tula joined the Team, did she have any best friends, (besides Kaldur and Garth). Perhaps she and Artemis were close? [In my head, they are, but- being a hopeless rabid fangirl my mind is not (if ever) close to canon… So, would you consider them close? If so, how close? (Sisters, BFFs?)
3.) Will the details of Tula's death be revealed; if the series ends before the details are- will you tell us anyway because we (the YJ fandom) are just that obsessed? Or will you not specify and make us wait…. (Why??? *starts to sink with her fangirl feels*)
THANK U!!! (P.S- I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE YOUNG JUSTICE!!!)
1. Um, my mind doesn't really work that way. It feels very reductive. Competent, maybe? (Competence to me is very sexy.)
2. SPOILER REQUEST. NO COMMENT.
3. SPOILER REQUEST. NO COMMENT.
I will say that Tula does have an important role in YOUNG JUSTICE LEGACY, so you're definitely going to want to pick that up in September.
Hey, Greg. Just saw an answer to a question I asked.
"Why was there a men's room in Project Cadmus? We only saw Desmond, Guardian, and Spence working at Cadmus. Unless the genomorphs gotta go too."
To which you responded: "There were also guards. But that's beside the point. Why wouldn't there be a Men's Room? And a Woman's Room? I mean, you, yourself listed two men above. I seriously don't understand this question. Who builds a facility without facilities?"
I suppose what I meant to ask was why the bathroom was so LARGE. There were probably ten stalls, but we only saw the two guys (Guardian and Desmond.) The guards answers this... But where were said guards? We ONLY saw Guardian and Desmond. Guardian used genomorphs as a security force. So... Where were the guards?
They're in a scene that was cut for time from the DC Nation version of the series. But that's all immaterial. You build restrooms that match the size of the facility (which was huge). Whether or not the company than populates its building with enough people to use the restrooms to the fullest extent of their potential has nothing to do with what the architect and city regulations dictate.
Heck, even if you're Cadmus, wouldn't you want options?
Besides, what makes you think the genomorphs weren't using the restrooms.
(Are we really still talking about this? Seriously?)
Did dick grayson date Rocket?
No. He dated Raquel Ervin, though.
Queen Bee's pheremone control...can someone with a particularly strong will overcome it?
Also, seeing as Marie Logan was affected, does that make her Bisexual or a Lesbian...and is Queen Bee Bisexual? Or is she like Marvel's Daken, a asexual sadist?
1. I'm not going to set hard and fast rules for something like this.
2a. I think you answered your own question.
2b. SPOILER REQUEST. NO COMMENT.
2c. I'm not familiar with Daken.
How long was Wally and Artemis living together before her undercover op.
Since the start of Sophomore year.
Were was Wally and Artemis after their New Years eve kiss?
Sorry, what's the question? Where were they? In the Watchtower.
What happened to Aquaman and Mera's baby?
Is he/her alive?
What's his/her name?
SPOILER REQUEST. NO COMMENT.
