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.
I was just re-reading some of the JLA and Teen Titans comics and was once again impressed by Nightwing's leadership skills. In most comics he's portrayed as being the ultimate leader, surpassing even Batman because of his excellent interpersonal skills.
My question is:
What was the reasoning behind making Nightwing only temporary team leader in YJ season 2? In season 1 Kaldur said Dick was born to lead the team, but to be perfectly honest, I haven't seen much evidence of that. It seemed to me he still had a lot to learn about what it means to be a leader. Was this your goal? To show that the road to becoming a good leader is a rocky one?
I'm a bit confused by elements of your question, frankly. Nightwing wasn't temporary Team leader in Season Two. He WAS Team Leader. Then he stepped down at the end of the season for reasons that I think are quite understandable. I think he did a great job as a leader. If you didn't see evidence of that, we'll just have to agree to disagree.
But yes, the road to becoming a good leader is rocky.
The fans have spoken!
This crowdfunding in opposition to TimeWarner was never going to happen.
I was on wikipedia(yeah I ), but anyways I was reading about the actor/actresses of Gargoyles, and I found that a lot of them worked with you on Young Justice too, such as Thom Adcox-Hernandez as Lexington and Klarion the witchboy, and Ed Asner as Hudson, and Dr. Kent!! I love that some of these people worked with you again!! So I have a question
1. Ed Asner's filmography on wikipedia, stats on that on Young Justice he voices Doctor Fate, and Granny Goodness, so my question is did I miss Granny Goodness being in young justice or was that a mistake?
2. What was like working with the old cast members of Gargoyles?
I really enjoyed both shows and since you had Josh Keith voice Black Spider as a nod to your series Spiderman, it was refreshing to hear that you also had a nod to Gargoyles with them voicing some of the characters of Young Justice, oh and I have one more question containing endgame
3. Was Wally's death a nod to Barry Allen's death in infinite crises?
This is all, I love your work and I look forward to your book series!!!
1. A mistake. I believe Ed voiced Granny Goodness in Justice League and/or Justice League Unlimited.
2. It's always fun. Like old home week.
3. Not particularly.
I have two unrelated questions.
1) Had Kaldur anticipated his and Artemis's cover being blown during Summit? Because it seems as though he had. Did he anticipate someone recognizing the glamor charm?
2) Did Klarion help Savage take out the three leaguers on Warworld? I ask because the three of them seem to be a bit much for Savage to handle on his own.
1. He recognized the potential that something could go wrong.
2. Maybe you underestimate Savage.
hey Greg, long time fan of the show, i started watching it when i was 11 yrs old, i'm 27 now. here's my question: in the episode High Noon just before the sun rises, what was Goliath looking at before he took his position since he shifts his head to the left (our right, his left)
I'm sorry. I can't remember. I'd have to rewatch that specific scene.
is black lightning is now the mentor of static?
Now that Bart is Kid Flash. Is his designation still B23? Or he now uses Wally's B03?
Designations don't change in that way. They remain attached to the individual. Tim Drake didn't take over Dick Grayson's old designation when he became Robin. Nightwing kept it.
On TSSM Doc Ock represented the top of the super villain chain, Tombstone the mobsters and Venom was the personal nemesis. Naturally Green Gosborn combined all these elements and worked within them, is that he was the Biggest Bad?
I'm not exactly sure what you're asking here. But I don't feel the need to rank things arbitrarily. GG is certainly Big Bad enough.
Hey Greg: I just wanted to say "thanks", for such a wonderful TV series in both "Young Justice" and "YJ: Invasion". I watched everything YJ-related for 2+ years now, and it was my first introduction into anything related to you (I watched Gargoyles rarely back in the day). YJ was (is) an amazing drama, albeit animation. I loved the character development of M'gann this year, and I loved the evolution of the series. I am sorry to hear it is likely over now, but I appreciate it (and you) for what it is -- a kickass TV show, juggling multiple characters with a complex but mostly resolved storyline. Thanks for the memories, and I hope to see you again soon. -Brent
Thanks for the kind words. If you want more YJ, check out our comics and the YJ Legacy video game. All are CANON.
Hi Greg! In season 1 of Young Justice Aquaman and Mera announce they're going to have a child but there is no mention of that ever again. Did Manta kill Aquababy like in the comics or is he still alive during season 2?
Check out Young Justice Legacy for more information on this.
Otherwise, SPOILER REQUEST. NO COMMENT.
