A Station Eight Fan Web Site
Hey Greg, longtime Fan here. I watched "Gargoyles" as a Kid. And me and my Brother loved both "Spectacular Spider-Man" & "Young Justice"! I'm so pissed that they both got cancelled before they could get Third Seasons, I have no doubt they would've gotten even better. Nevertheless my most sincere thanks goes out to you and all the very talented people that brought us these shows. Here are a few "Young Justice" Related things that I wanted to bring up.
1. Deathstroke was AWESOME!!! His Design and Wentworth Miller's Performance were both Great.
2. Have you checked out the Game "Injustice: Gods Among Us"? I applaud their decision to hire several Actors from "YJ" to reprise their Roles. Hearing Alan Tudyk and Mark Rolston as Green Arrow & Luthor again, and in a Fighting Game no less, is just great.
3. Keith David as Mongul? Total WIN! I knew you would work him in somehow.
4. I just noticed that "Denial" is a partial "Gargoyles" Reunion! It had Ed Asner(Kent Nelson/Hudson), Jeff Bennett(Brooklyn/Abra Kadabra) & Thom Adcox-Hernandez(Lexington/Klarion)!!! It reminded me I should watch Gargoyles more often nowadays.
5. Last one. Me & my Brother LOVED Guy Gardner's Design in the Show. As usual yall guys tried something new and different and it turned out "Spectacular"!!!(I know, I forced that joke)
P.S. Loved Josh Keaton's Cameo as "Black Spider", brought back great memories!
2. I haven't. I'm really not much of a gamer. (No hand-eye coordination to speak of.) But I'm thrilled they used Alan and Mark.
3. Don't make it sound like I'm doing him a favor. He's doing me one.
4. We all should.
5. Credit Phil Bourassa for nearly all of our fantastic character designs. (Props also to Jerome Moore and in the comics, Chris Jones.)
Hi there Greg!
One thing I've always loved about Gargoyles is that the villains all have certain vulnerabilities and emotional sore spots. Xanatos with his family, and immortality and arrogance. Demona and her loneliness and denial. Etc.
Dr.Sevarius always seemed to be just be outright evil though. No empathy for anything, no emotional vulnerability, just a total mad scientist. In your mind, is there some emotional element to him that was undiscovered, and would you at all share what that may be? Not asking for any sort of story spoilers, just some general character insight!
"Mad"? I think he enjoyed playing the mad scientist, but I wouldn't think that would be a legally defensible position.
He enjoys money, science and drama, not necessarily in that order.
As to emotional elements, I'll leave that either to your interpretation or to future stories. But we've certainly seen his feelings hurt, if that counts.
In Legacy, Tula researches the statue pieces in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Is this the museum in New York, or one in Metropolis?
I believe New York, but I'm not 100% sure.
1.When was Amazo created?
2. How old was Inza Nelson when she dead?
3. How old is Teekl? Is he ageless as Klarion?
1. Amazo was completed just prior to the beginning of the episode.
2. Eighty-two (give or take 11 months)
In Young Justice: Legacy,
1) Who voiced Bumblebee in place of Masasa Moyo?
2) If my previous question(s) didn't answer it, who did Jeff Bennett voice?
2) If my previous question(s) didn't answer it, who did Vanessa Marshall voice?
3) If my previous question(s) didn't answer it, who did Jeff Bennett voice?
4) If my previous question(s) didn't answer it, who did you voice?
5) What's one moderate-major thing you changed in the script?
1-4. Again, I don't have that info with me at the moment. And I don't trust my memory.
5. I don't know that there was anything major in the script. I did a pass on all the dialogue, so that hopefully it sounded spot on to our characters. And Brandon and I both worked the story with Little Orbit before they got to script. We wanted, for example, to make sure that the Light's plan made sense, given their objectives. And, of course, we wanted to make sure that the correct Team members, given the time period, were present or accounted for, and that no one who shouldn't be there was - except as bonus fun DLCs.
In Young Justice: Legacy,
1) Who voiced Batgirl in place of Alyson Stoner?
2) Who voiced Rocket in place of Kittie/Denise Boutte?
3) Who voiced Killer Frost in place of Sarah Shahi?
4) Who voiced Bane in place of Danny Trejo?
5) Who voiced Psimon in place of Alan Tudyk?
I'm afraid I don't remember, and I don't have the information with me at this moment.
Although, I thought Alyson did voice Batgirl. Hmmm....
I've noticed you've refused (repeatedly) to confirm or deny whether Cletus Kasady would have eventually become Carnage in The Spectacular Spider-Man, but can you reveal what he was talking about during his cameo in the group therapy in "Reinforcement"?
Probably his desire to kill.
You had mentioned that you negotiated with Jeffrey Katzenberg to get the publishing rights for Rain of the Ghosts. Did you attempt to acquire the rights to any other property you developed while at Dreamworks?
I have turnaround rights to pitch a couple of other properties that I developed there.
Hello, Greg! Super-excited to get my hands on Rain of the Ghosts and ready to come to you for questions but first, a question about the London Clan:
Since the clan runs the shop Into the Mystic, does that mean that they have to pay taxes on it? If so, how are they registered in the system? Do they have aliases, or do they have the human employees do all the work?
Thank you very much, and I hope Rain of the Ghosts sells a kajillion copies!
They pay taxes. They're in the system. But there's some subterfuge involving tax attorneys (solicitors?) who have never met their clients in person.
And I hope you're right about RAIN!!!
a while ago I asked how Superman kept his identity as Clark Kent a secret if the only "disguise" is a pair of glasses, to which you conceeded did in fact provide the minor disguise of subduing his eye color, but your main reasoning was that few people know both Superman and Clark Kent, so that there was little chance of the general public realizing they look identical...but, to me, and maby I am way over-thinking this, there seems to be a flaw in this logic.
Ill explain...youve said before that superheroes were Earth-16's version of super-star celebrities...now, im not a fan of Tom Cruise in thr least, but ive seen his face enough to recognize him at the local store if the only thing he did to disguse himself was put on glasses and slick his hair back. Addionaly, since Clark Kent is (im assuming) well known journalist, whose pictures regularly appear next to articals, at least in a lot of newspapers ive read, it seems to me there is a HUGE portion of Metropolis, if not all America, that could put 2 & 2 together at any time without ever having met either Superman or Clark Kent.
I appologize if Im being nit-pickey, but this has always kind of bugged me about Superman (and I hate explainations like "super hypnotism") so sinve you tend to write stories with a sence of realism, I was just wondering if you have any further thoughts on this.
Thank you for your time.
1. I'll grant that Superman's face is famous, but not Clark's. (Not all papers use pictures of their reporters.) I don't know where you live or what the policies of your local newspaper are, but I'd still lay odds you wouldn't recognize 98% of its reporters, even if you saw them face to face.
2. Plus, you're assuming anyone thinks Superman HAS a secret identity. Everyone knows Batman has one, because, well, he wears a mask. But Superman is an alien from another world who seems to fly all over the place, saving space shuttles and kittens, etc. And he wears no mask. So no one thinks he has another identity. Thus it's not like folks are walking around trying to figure out who Superman REALLY is. If it doesn't occur to you that Superman has another identity, your mind isn't even going to go there when you see Clark.
3. I think Christopher Reeve proved that Clark and Superman can look dramatically different in one specific scene of the 1978 film Superman. Watch it (again or for the first time). You can't miss it. Clark is about to reveal his identity to Lois but chickens out. I clearly remember seeing that scene for the first time - and for the first time truly believing that folks wouldn't realize that Clark and Superman were the same person.
4. Finally, you need to suspend some disbelief here, my friend. I like some realism injected into my stories too. But ultimately, I'm not sure if I met Spider-Man in real life, full mask and all that I wouldn't recognize him as Peter Parker, if I already knew Pete. I REALLY doubt Batman would fool anyone who truly knew Bruce Wayne. But the fictional conceit is that a mask works. If you buy that. Then it's not that large a leap, given all the above, that Clark's identity is largely under the radar.
5. No Super-Hypnotism on Earth-16.
