Just played the YJ Legacy.
Collected 3 Red Arrow journals.
Then a strange question came to me.
As player we can see the journal content by the computer in the Cave.
But in fact, I mean the team's fact, do they really find some Red Arrow's journals and read it?
Or they didn't really got some journal in the missions. The journals can only be seen by Player. As some player reward?
I asked this because that would be a bit weird if the team really read the journals of Red Arrow and still did nothing to help their friend. And also Red Arrow would be careless to put his digital journal every where.
Anyway, I like the idea of Red Arrow Journal.
I would like to get more and more side story about some sub characters in this show, in any way.
I don't think the Team read the Journals. They are a treat for the audience/player. And the entries themselves are canon. But they were never assumed to be read by members of the Team or the League.
But the notion that the Team and League didn't try to help Roy is clearly false. You saw one of their efforts on screen in the series.
Regarding the ending of "Endgame"... Is that the first leave of absence that Dick Grayson has taken from the Team?
Of any significance, yes.
What are Asami's superpowers? I have the hardest time thinking about them. Is it kinetic energy manipulation or wind manipulation or what?
Hey, Greg. I noticed another poster mentioned using YJ for educational purposes. I work as English/ESL teacher. I taught a TOEFL class for a period of time and one of the things I had to do was to introduce my class of Korean teenagers to the concept of an inference. So, I showed them "Infiltrator". "So weak!" and "So stupid!" were one girl's response to Aqualad. (Kaldur does get beat-up quite a bit in this episode.) Anyways, I asked them how Wally and Artemis feel about each other. They drew the conclusion that they don't like each other.
"Oh, really?" I said.
Then, I showed them "Bereft" in which Wally and Artemis meet again for the first time. Then, I showed them how Wally and Artemis's behavior in "Infiltrator" can be construed differently - in other words: it is possible to INFER certain things from their behavior that are not directly stated. Anyways, I think they got the concept of an inference.
More recently, I used "Denial" to demonstrate the hero's journey. Although I did point out that since Wally seems not to have learned anything at the end of the episode that his journey was comic variation of the archetypal hero's journey.
That's all for now.
Okay first: SO COOL!!! That sounds like a very neat lesson.
But second, Wally clearly did learn something by the end of the episode. He just didn't want to admit it to others or to himself.
First of all, Thank you. Young Justice gave me hope that there are still quality "kid's shows" being created. Second, Gargoyles was one of my top five shows as a kid (And I just today learned that you're responsible for both, so thanks for that too).
Now for the main reason I'm questioning you: I've finishing up a Master's degree now and will hopefully be teaching come September. Would it bother you if I made it a goal of mine to use Young Justice in a classroom setting? I feel like the show has so much potential for talking about social justice and frankly teaching analytical skills, prediction, characterization...basically I want to use Young Justice as a teaching tool because it was such a richly created world. And the truth is, I would like your blessing to pursue this goal.
P.S. Your snark, it is amazing.
I actually think Gargoyles might serve your needs better, but YJ would be very cool too.
So you absolutely have my blessing. Keep me posted on how it goes.
1. After Jaime got un-moded but before the finale, did Cassie and Jaime get a chance to really talk? I got the impression they were close from the comics, so I thought Cassie was probably really worried, so I was wondering if they had time to talk that over between the business of missions.
2. Did you ever plan a conversation between Cassie and Jaime that had to get cut? I find it odd that they get a fair amount of time together in the comics, yet don't interact in the show.
3. Was Tim's lack of screentime in comparison to Jaime's the reason that Tim was chosen over Jaime as Cassie's love interest (since Jaime did have "biochemical changes" after all)
4. How long did Cassie have a crush on Tim before getting together with him?
5. Was anyone else (like Dick, Barbara) aware of Cassie or Tim's mutual crush before they became a couple? If so, and you don't mind telling me, who are they?
You rock for this site and everything! Young Justice Forever!
1. In that short window? Not much.
2. Not particularly.
3. I'm sure lots of young men get biochemical changes around Cassie.
4. Some time.
5. I can't imagine Barbara not knowing.
Uhmm, Hi. It's my first time to ask a question so can you please answer this?
What were the spells used by Zatanna in #218/Intervention?
I think they can all be found here: http://youngjustice.wikia.com/wiki/Intervention#Backwards_spells
Chip Coffin and I were having a debate, and I thought you might be able to settle this.
When a spell like the one Demona cast in "City of Stone" is broken, can the spell be used again? In theory, let's say Demona wanted to cast it again, would it work? Would Xanatos need to light the sky on fire again?
In theory… if you still had the pieces to put it all together.
So, I actually have a question about the old SLG comics you did. Was keeping Gargoyles true to it's late 90's setting ever a struggle for you? As in, did you have to make sure you didn't include anything into the story that, while around now (such as, let's just say, an mp3 player), would not have made so much sense for the setting? The other day I was just thinking about how I take it some things for granted like smartphones and mp3 players, even though they are very new things that weren't even around when Gargoyles was.
I hope this made sense, what I was trying to ask.
It wasn't a challenge, probably because I'm such a technological moron myself. It doesn't occur to me to put those kinds of things in.
Another Flash related question I have been pondering for a while now...
1. Why is Flash's (and Kid Flash's) lightning bolt insignia/logo/symbol different from the one in the original comics? In Young Justice it is only one line that switches back, but in the comics it is two (as I'm sure you know, being so knowledgeable in comics and such). I know Bruce Timm did it in the DCAU as well, and it was one of the reasons I had such a hard time (which in the long run I considered fun) finding out and realizing the differences between Flashes. I was just curious. Does it have anything to do with that the logo can't be the same due to copyright? Is it just easier to draw? Was it your preference?
2. Is there more cut material from episodes that you are willing to share?
3. I thought the Arsenal spin-off would have been a great idea! Along with the other items you pitched for Earth-16...here's hoping we'll see some soon!
1. You'd have to ask Phil Bourassa and/or Brandon Vietti. For me, it was just Phil and Brandon saying, "What do you think?" And me going, "Cool." I don't know what their thought processes were.
2. I think I've shared all there is.
3. Me too.
So... Weird question rewatching the Hunt.
How does Tye get sensory input when he is using his big yellow avatar? I ask because he always has his eyes closed. Does he have some kind of sixth sense?
He's connected to the Longshadow.
In Invasion, Artemis fakes her death to go under cover, but now that the mission is over is she somehow going to be able to go back to her old life as Artemis or will she get a new identity?
1. WHERE is the exact place that Vandal Savage was born on Earth-16?
2. Given Vandal Savage lived for over 50,000 years, would he actually be considered to be a Cro-Magnon (which is an informal name for the first early modern humans)?
3. Would Vandal Savage be comparable in some ways to the Marvel Comics villain known as Romulus (one of Wolverine's enemies)?
1. What do you want, like coordinates?
2. I knew this. Can't remember now.
3. I have no idea. But if he's Wolverine's enemy, than it sounds like Savage came way first.
I have some Jaime-related questions......
1) Does Milagro Reyes exist on Earth-16?
2) Can you give us any idea of what Bart and Jaime's friendship was like during the two month period Jaime was on mode? They didn't really talk to each other or interact in War.
3) Post-Endgame, who does Jaime consider his best friend?
4) Would you have found it irrelevant for the scarab to name himself (Khaji Da) or did you just not have time to include it in the script?
5) Was there any relevance to moded Jaime hitting Bart first in War, other than that he was simply the closest one (same with moving to kill Bart first, rather than Barbara in Intervention)?
I hope you can answer these, thanks!
1. SPOILER REQUEST.
2. What you see is largely what you get. Just more of the same.
3. I assume you mean among the Team, in which case, Bart.
5. More that he was the fastest one. If he had hit anyone else first, dealing with Bart would be difficult.
1: Queen Perdita, is she still in power in 2016?
2: Does she have feelings for Wally
3: What kind of Nation is Vlatava
1. SPOILER REQUEST.
2. SPOILER REQUEST.
3. A constitutional monarchy.
Pressed the m button there when I was going for the comma, sorry about that! I do have two more questions though:
1) In "Endgame", how did the Justice League get back to Earth so quickly after being cleared of the charges? And whichever method they used for their return to Earth, why didn't they use that means when they were leaving Earth in "Alienated"?
2a) I was thinking about Vandal Savage threatening Rimbor with the Warworld earlier in the episode... Why didn't he carry out that threat?
2b) Why didn't Savage want the League to return to Earth? Did he not want them to help drive the Reach off-world?
1. They used the same method to go and to return, i.e. they flew in a Green Lantern generated starship.
2a. Why would he? The threat was he'd attack if they attacked Earth. They didn't.
2b. He didn't need them for that. He wanted them convicted. Whether or not they returned to Earth didn't matter as much to him.
Hi Gregm just a quick question: Whose call was it that Aqualad and Tempest didn't pair up when the heroes were splitting into pairs in "Endgame"? Did Kaldur and Garth not want to pair up?
Nothing like that. But Kaldur did want to pair up with La'gaan and needed to.
I was just wondering: what were your reasons for making Nightwing a far more serious character in YJ season 2 than the more light-hearted Nightwing of the comics? Was it the leadership role in season 2 that was weighing him down (I noticed that he seemed a little more light-hearted at the end of Summit when he'd relinquished leadership to Aqualad)? Or did something happen during the five year gap that affected him so much that he became more like the Bat (Jason's death, perhaps?)?
I was just curious as Dick Grayson/Nightwing in the comics has pretty consistently been portrayed as an eternal optimist and having an actual sense of humour, even when he was Batman. He overcame the darkness of his mentor and retained an utterly joyful attitude towards life. So what made you decide to make Dick/Nightwing in Young Justice more like Batman?
I'm not criticizing! Just genuinely curious.
1. All of the above. But he also still had his moments of fun. And I don't think personality-wise he was ever anything like the Batman in our show. Not really.
Hi Mr Weisman
i was wondering do you feel any anger towards the shows you work on get canceled before you can finish all the plot lines
also what do you plan to do now that young justice is cancelled
Anger isn't the right word. Frustration, certainly. Sadness. Melancholy. Resignation. It's not a happy feeling, but there's nothing and no one to be angry about.
By now, you probably know that I'm one of the Executive Producers of the new STAR WARS REBELS animated series, which premieres in 2014 and that I've written two novels: RAIN OF THE GHOSTS and SPIRITS OF ASH AND FOAM.
Oh my gosh, you did work on Starship Troopers Roughnecks? Thats one of my favorite series and something I watched avidly during my childhood~
What work did you do on it exactly?
I story edited two of the arcs: the five episode Tesca Nemerosa jungle arc, and the final arc set on Earth (beginning with the funeral of Razak). The latter was a set of five episodes that were all written and recorded, but the last three episodes (the conclusion of the entire series) were never produced, which was frustrating.
I also personally wrote two episodes, the one where Rico flashes back to joining the service, and the Razak funeral episode.
I also participated in the post production of the seven episodes that I story edited and which got produced.
I just watched Enter Macbeth and I have a question about why he went to Xanatos with his offer. How did Macbeth know that there were gargoyles living modern Castle Wyvern in the first place?
He had seen them.
Well , sad to see the end of what was an overall great series. I do wish it could have gotten another season. So many dangling threads/plots. But you guys know that.
I saw the finale and gotta say this was the weakest episode of the entire series. I know there was rush to try to give some resolution but it felt meh. It was rushed and many things shoe horned. It fell flat for a finale. You seemed to want to do fan service too but again some things fell short and were baffling.
The killing of Wally...okay he might not be dead knowing you...but still the best couple in the show end up torn asunder.
The worse couple took up precious time that could have been used to do something else and that is Superboy and Miss Martian. Them being lawyers to get the JL off was really lame. So Icon could not have done that? Superboy suffered in season two. What great development we could have had with him was stunted and he simply became the sad whipped pining boyfriend of a girl who frankly did not deserve to get him back. I don't think that relationship did much for Superboy.
The Tim/Cassie reveal was the most baffling move. This show seems to do a lot of shipping but at least I would understand if there was some hint or chemisty. Cassie and Jaime were the most obvious pair up. Diverse guys can't get the cute alpha girl no more than 'ugly' ones like Lagaan is the unfortunate message I see here. For a show aimed at kids I would have preferred if we could have pushed some forward thinking ground.
The Lex virus was way too convenient and the JL just being off world seemed such a waste of time. Why have a JL though if these kids can do everything? The show did pander at times to the young team.
Kaldur I must say was one of the best characters and you did his arc well. His tie up could have been the finale...how better it was done than End Game. Artemis was another character as Jaime who were well developed. I liked the younger kids but they seemed to just take a lot of time away from the team. It just at times seem too packed and too expansive for such a short time. I know it is a chance to let others shine but the pacing suffered. Your villains were all great but best villain has to be Black Beetle. Seriously sir. Well done. I dread when this guy is around. I hope DC does more with him.
Anyway overall a big A. But C for the finale.
Sorry the finale didn't work for you.
1.Are Lords of Chaos/Order an earth phenomenon (explaining why Klarion is humanoid if it needs explaining). I know they are timeless, but are they also all permeating?
2.Does wearing the helmet prevent death? If his human body had a heart attack or aneurysm would he be able to negate it, would the helmet remove itself, etc.
1. They're not restricted to Earth.
2. Not ultimately, no.
Hi there I was wondering
1a. Are Artemis and Zatanna still close, 5 years later? I know they were somewhat best friends in the first season of Young Justice.
1b. Do they still hang out and have their 'girls night outs'?
2. If they aren't close, how come they drifted apart if they did drift apart?
1b. I'd think so.
2. See above.
1) What was the reason the Light needed the league alive for the next phase of their plan (as stated in Auld Acquaintance)? Was it so the League would be there to drive the Reach off Earth when the time was right?
2) Why did Savage want the Rimbor 6 convicted? Didn't he need those particular leaguers available as well? How could they have contributed to the Light's plans from prison?
1. In part. And for them to be the villains of Rimbor.
2. He had all sorts of contingencies, but as you saw, they weren't necessary to save the Earth that time. And it's nice knowing where to find them. Plus if they were convicted and decided not to serve their time, that would work in his favor too.
