1. You've said that you're not a binge watcher. Does that influence your storytelling style in your shows? Also, if a show had a single story that stretched over several episodes like with "Awakening" of Gargoyles, would you watch them in one sitting?
2. Since you prefer more serialized stories (hopefully I'm using the right term), how do you feel when you watch more episodic shows like Justice League/JLU?
3. Somewhat relating to that last question, have you finished JLU and Teen Titans? If so, what are your thoughts on them now?
4. What kind of stories do you prefer to tell? As in, how and when do you decide to make a story out of some heavy subject or theme such as -I don't know- slavery instead of a just a story that moves a character forward? Do you think one is better than the other? How do you feel about "heavy subject" stories in general, or would you say those are almost always present anyways? I hope this last question makes sense.
1. Don't know. Never worked on a show that was specifically designed for binging.
2. I hate to make blanket assessments. But I'm less engaged. Also strictly speaking, I write episodic but sequential stories with serialized elements. Not a straight serial.
4. I believe in organic storytelling. The characters tend to tell me what happens next, to a great extent. Like anyone, sometimes their lives glance over or immerse themselves in so-called "heavy subjects" - and sometimes they don't.
As of Season 2
1. Why does Mal live in the Cave instead of an apartment or house?
2. Why doesn't Lagoon Boy live in the Polis' he's from?
3. Does he split his time between the Team and the Polis he's from?

3. Probably splits time between all three locations.

1. Familiar? No. Aware? Yes.
By the way, I'm more familiar with Cassandra Cain now.
I suppose this is a bit of a nitpick about 20 years too late, but while rewatching the pilot of Gargoyles for the millionth time, I couldn't help but question how Goliath managed to carry all of the Gargoyles from the battle to Castle Wyvern.
One at a time.

I'm sorry. I don't remember. And I don't have my recording script here at my Nickelodeon office to even attempt a guess.
Mister Weisman , I am a boy of 15 years of Argentina,from now excuse me if my English is very low expectation,I wanted to tell you about your tv series called "Young Justice",You and your team did a wonderful job, i love dc universe and everything that includes superheroes but you changed my life, I was a rebellious boy to my task not spend much time in the streets, when I saw the TV series left shocked after I saw his first season change radically thanks to you now consider myself a better person. Thank you so much for doing that, but now I am really sad because the third season of Young Justice will not occur and the truth that can make a lot of money had a very open-ended and all your fans, fans of the series want to Somehow or another they finish making the third season and more seasons if you can, if not enough money to do the show through the internet that much encerio love that series, cried with the death of Wally, cry with death sagebrush and I blame you for that because there was dead lol, I appreciate you have made this series and brother want puedieras continue to produce more this season, and if not well at least answer me. I admire command you health and peace for you and the whole team of "Young Justice"
I'm very gratified that the series meant so much to you. And, if it helps, I think there is a decent chance of getting the series back. We're asking all the fans to binge-watch YOUNG JUSTICE on Netflix. I don't know if you have Netflix in Argentina or if YJ is on it, if you do. But if so, please watch the show over and over. It will really help us get it back.
Have you read the Grimm storyline from Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight #149 - 153?
1. Out of universe was anyone else considered for the position of the enforcer for the Light besides Deathstroke?
2. If so, who?
3. At what point did you know that you wanted to use Deathstroke as the enforcer for the Light in Season 2?
1. You mean besides Sportsmaster? No.
2. See above.
3. 2010, I think.
There is a poster of Aqualad in Gar's room during Image.
1. Since Rocket had debuted in May, was Gar aware that there was a public figure called Rocket before Image?
2. Out of the public figures, Robin, Speedy, Aqualad, Kid Flash, and Rocket, was Aqualad Gar's favorite before Image?
1. I don't know.
2. It seems so. But honestly, I don't even remember the Aqualad poster. I can't confirm it's existence.
Is Eduardo's grandfather his grandfather on his father's side or his mother's?
1. Is Virgil's sister older or younger then he is?
2. Is her name Sharon?
Technically, these are both spoiler requests... but older and yes.
Who is the second in command of the Runaways?
Is there a first in command?
I noticed while watching Young Justice that Roy shoots his bow right-handed but keeps his armguard on his right arm, as if to shoot left-handed. I had originally meant to ask you why that was, but I think I have figured it out: is it because he is skilled enough to not need an armguard for shooting right-handed but has one on his right arm in case circumstances force him to change hands? This presumes that he has less practice overall shooting left-handed, or at least feels less comfortable in his ability to do so safely.
I like your reasoning!

And in 1966, 50 years ago, the BATMAN "camp" TV series debuted (starring Adam West and Burt Ward), marking what is seen as both a high and low point in the history of the character! Comics and animation writer/producer Greg Weisman (Young Justice; The Batman) and comics historian Danny Fingeroth (Superman on the Couch; Disguised as Clark Kent) take you on a slideshow-guided tour of the histories of the heroes and the highlights of their careers in comics, on TV and in the movies! Join the celebration! .
Hope to see you there!
Hello, Mr Weisman.
I was playing Lego Batman 3, and one of the story lines was based on the Blue Lantern planet Odym. During this story, the Blue Lanterns were being attacked by The Reach.
I made a connection to Young Justice Invasion, and wondered, did you get the idea of The Reach from the game? An enemy that you were interested in? Or a different reason all together? (if that is the case, could you specify?)
Thank you for your time :)
We got the idea for the Reach from Blue Beetle comic books, after DC's Mike Carlin suggested them.
Hello, Mr. Weisman. Hope this post finds you happy and well. I love and admire all your work (Gargoyles was a huge part of my childhood and still inspires me to this day).
My question is related to Young Justice:
Would you or have you ever considered doing episode rambles on Young Justice one day?
Thank you for your time (:
It's been brought up before. But I don't seem to have the time these days. But someday, maybe...
May I say that your shows are amazing Mr. Greg :) My best friend got introduced to all of them :)
And my question is that in your book series would you like it to be something in the lines of a comic book?
I'd be happy to adapt it to a comic book. But first and foremost it's a series of novels. And an AudioPlay.
1. Assuming you were able to, would you write an episode (or a comic issue) of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic if you were asked?
2. Would you also be a part of the creative team for the show if asked (again, assuming you were able to)? I'd like to think the show would be better with your input.
1. Probably. I'm not particularly familiar with the property. But a paycheck is a paycheck.
2. Sure. Though I somehow doubt they need me.
On Jan. 6th, 2014 you stated that originally you had planned to show a scene where we see a "BLANK" body-suit adapt to match the person it was replacing. But there just wasn't the page space when it came down to scripting the issue.
What episode did you intend this scene to be in?
I don't even know what property you're referring to. It's been two and a half years since that "statement," and it was already one and a half years when you posted your question. Context would have helped.
Oh, wait. I'm guessing you're talking about the Krolotean body-suits. In which case, I would have put it in the companion comic, I think (if I recall correctly) in issue #25. We would have seen Noor Harjavti and Bibbo Bibbowsky duplicated by blank body-suits operated by Kroloteans.
1. As of Endgame who is aware that Megan fried Kaldur's brain?
2. Is the Krolotean Megan interrogates in Alienated in a catatonic state when she finishes?
3. If so, did Martian Manhunter realize this?
1. At minimum, Miss Martian, Aqualad, Superboy, Tigress, Nightwing, Vandal Savage, Psimon, Black Manta, Deathstroke, Cheshire, Sportsmaster, Queen Bee, Ra's al Ghul, Brain, Lex Luthor, the Ambassador and various Manta Troopers.
2. Pretty much.
3. Not immediately.
1. Who is Black Lighting closest to in the Justice League?
2. Who initially nominated Black Lightning for League membership?
1. No Spoilers.
2. No Spoilers.
I was a huge fan of Young Justice when it was on air, and would even manage to wake up for it on Saturdays (Specifically for season 2) despite being a college student who loved to sleep in.
I especially loved Wally's character, and felt that he was the best character (With Robin/Nightwing being not too far behind with his constant prefix questioning)
My question is, which do you think caused the most people to react to Wally's sacrifice at the end of Season 2? The attachment to this specific Wally that you guys built up over two seasons, the fact that your Wally was the only remaining Wally in media at the time (As it would be a while before he was added back into comics), or the end of the show meaning that we might not know if he could ever return.
And heck, I'll add in another question. What was the inspiration for Dick's obsession with prefixes, and why he chose to use the non-prefixed words? Specifically Whelmed because that was always my favorite.
1. I can't speak for the fans. It sounds like all three of your suggestions played a role.
2. As I've stated many times before, Robin's "unwords" were inspired by actual conversations I had with my kids.
This might be a totally silly thing to ask, but it occurred to me today and has been bothering me...
If Nabu refuses to let Zatara remove the helmet of fate because he's afraid that neither Zatara nor anyone else would put it back on again, then how in the world does Zatara eat? There's no way to access his mouth with that helmet on 24/7. Does the host of Nabu no longer need to eat? And I'm not trying to be facetious, I'm 100% serious with this question. Like, in season two, Zatara has been Doctor Fate for over five years. Surely he's eaten something in that time? Or is his body sustained through magical means? Thanks for taking the time to answer all these questions!
Is Zatara still Doctor Fate in Season Two? What's your evidence for this?
In any case, I'm sure magic is useful for eating, bathing, etc.
Out of universe explanation for
1. Why was Hal used as one of the original seven members of the Justice League instead of John?
2. Why was Ray Palmer used as the Atom instead of Ryan Choi?
Beth Chapel is a skilled surgeon.
3. Why was Pieter Cross used instead of Beth Chapel?
1. Because, not counting Alan Scott, he was the first Green Lantern.
2. Because, not counting Al Pratt, he was the first Atom.
3. I honestly don't remember.
Who gets clothes and other things for Garfield when he was living at the cave? Who pays for Garfield's schooling at the cave?
His guardian is Megan Morse. But I imagine the League pays for his schooling.
Does John Stewart have a mentor within the Green Lantern Corps?
Probably more than one.
1. Does Cassie know what Robin's secret identity is Tim Drake?
2. If so, who told her?
3. Are Cassie Sandsmark and Tim Drake dating publicly?
4. Is the media aware?
5. Has Cassie been to a Wayne Foundation event with Tim?
1. No Spoilers.
2. See above.
3. Define publicly.
5. No Spoilers.
1. Does Dr. Mattie Harcourt live in Boston?
2. What type of medical doctor is she?
2. I'm guessing thorasic surgeon, but I'd have to do research to confirm that.
1. Is Holling Tye's grandfather on his father's side or his mother's?
2. Is Holling's wife alive or deceased?
3. Did Tye's father die before or after he was born?
4. How long has Tye's family, on both sides, lived in El Paso?
2. No spoilers.
4. I honestly haven't thought this through.
In Young Justice #14 Wyynde wears a golden diadem. A diadem is a crown worn by a king or queen as a symbol of royalty.
1. Is Wyynde royalty?
2. What Polis is he from?
Sorry, but no spoilers.
