1. does dick still have romani heritage in earth sixteen canon? I apologize if that's already been asked.
2. how did arsenal stay fifteen (i believe) for eight years? was there some
kind of anti-aging technology in play when he was on ice?
3. i don't actually have a third question. wait, yes i do. is there a chance the yj original trio will make some sort of appearence, since they're all on the team now? that's a spoiler, though isn't it..
1. No Spoilers.
2. He was frozen.
3. I honestly don't know what you're asking here. But in any case, it would clearly be a spoiler.
The Earth revolves at around 1000 MPH
Why isn't it windy all the time?
You'd have to ask someone who knows, but I'd guess it's because our atmosphere is revolving WITH the Earth.
1. Did the guardians of universe knew of Alan Scott's power ring?
3. Did Alan Scott ever found out about the guardians of the universe?
4. When did the malfunctioning power ring landed on earth?
5. Did the guardians of the universe ever consider taking away Alan Scott's power ring?
1. No Spoilers.
2. There is no question 2.
4. No Spoilers.
5. No Spoilers. (By the way, this is the DEFINITION of an idea masquerading as a question. Please, EVERYONE, do not post ideas masquerading as questions. In the future, they will be deleted, along with any legit questions on the same post. I only let this one stand to make this point.)
Hi. A little while ago I requested a character oriented slant for a hypothetical third season of Young Justice. I want to rescind my request. As I sit here working on my YA novel, I realized that no writer can work that way. He/she can only tell the story she wants to tell and hope other people like it.
What is joker's real name and when did he became Red hood
1. I don't know. And in any case, NO SPOILERS.
2. You're assuming facts not in evidence. And in any case, NO SPOILERS.
1. In "Misplaced" was Icicle Jr. still seventeen or had he already become an adult?
2. What did Icicle Jr. do during the time that the adults and children were separated into two dimensions?
1. Is Icicle Jr. in Misplaced? But in any case, throughout season one, he's 16 or 17.
2. No spoilers.
Good afternoon. My name is Brian Josephs and I'm a reporter working for VICE. I hope this message finds you in good spirits.
I'm writing you because I'm working on an article examining the furry community. A historian told me that Gargoyles has been a point of interest, and the 2014 CONvergence convention honored the 20th anniversary of the show by featuring a panel.
Are you available briefly for a phone conversation tomorrow about the experience? If so, please shoot me an email at email@example.com. Thanks and hope to hear from you soon.
You posted this in March, so I'm assuming that I'm getting to it a bit too late to be of any use. And though I welcome fandom of any fur, I must admit I don't know much about the furry community. CONvergence, for example, is not a specifically furry con. Though I'm sure some furries attend.
If you're still interested in talking with me, shoot me a tweet at @Greg_Weisman, and we'll go from there.
Hello Mr Weissman,
So first of all I would like to congratulate you and thank you for Young Justice. Whilst I am saddened you weren't able to do more with the series, I think what you produced was a great run and a rich, fascinating world which I am sure we would all have loved to see more of. I'll try to avoid ranting against the Powers That Be here, and just say thanks for giving it to us.
Now I have some extremely dorky questions about the background;
1: How much do Kryptonians weigh? You've said their strength and toughness comes from their density, but the fact Superboy can be shot by a tank with no result but to make him angrier seems to suggest he ought to weigh several tons, which would have caused him a few problems. It's possible he's made of some supertough material, but he also pins down an enormous monster in season 2 just by lying on top of its arm, so it looks like it's just his weight that's holding it down, which again would indicate he's REALLY heavy and Flash is presumably tailing him and putting reinforced chairs down whenever he has to sit somewhere :)
2: What kind of working relationship does the League have with mortal law enforcement/intelligence agencies? Have they told Interpol, Europol, the CIA and so forth about the Light (even if they don't want to start accusing Lex Luthor because it might get them sued if they don't have enough proof)?
3: Atlantis isn't part of the UN as per 'Usual Suspects' and even in season 2 little enough is known about it by air-breathers that Godfrey can ask if they're actually aliens. What kind of contact DOES Atlantis have with the surface world besides Aquaman and his sidekicks?
4: Does the Justice League own the rights to its logos and does it get royalties from all the superhero logos people presumably put on t-shirts, lunchboxes and so on on Earth 16?
5: Batman describes Bialya as a 'rogue state', but it seems to have some pretty high end military hardware (predator drones which are far more manouvrable than the real ones) and, frankly, I'd question the decision to let Queen Bee on the Light's board of directors if she ran a pariah state. So what is Bialya's standing in the international community, and specifically its relationship with the USA?
1. I'd ask them, but it seems indelicate.
2. I'm sure they've got reciprocal intelligence sharing.
3. Little, at this point.
4. There's a lot of pirating, but yes.
5. It's standing varies from state to state. It's standing with the U.S. is not good.
If you were to play a Nintendo game or two, what would it be and why?
I don't know anything about Nintendo. Couldn't name a single game with confidence.
Recently you implied that if people binge Young Justice it could get revived. While I want that is it possible? A lot of the writers and animators have broken up and are doing other things ex. Kevin is a writer for Star Wars Rebels. I'm not trying to be a cynic its just a huge hurdle that no one seems to be discussing.
Not every single person who EVER worked on the series would be back, certainly, but we'd get the cast back. And Brandon Vietti, Phil Bourassa and myself have all made it clear we'd come back, and I believe we're the three individuals who are truly essential to the show beyond the cast. Kevin isn't on Rebels anymore, but he does have other work. I don't know whether we'd get him back specifically, though I would hope so. But I can guarantee you that the writing would still be top-notch.
To be clear, this is all theoretical. The show isn't back. We simply are hopeful and optimistic.
In your opinion, what are some of the key factors that separate a good story/script from a poor one (especially as it applies to writing in episodic television)?
Story that comes out of character.
Dialogue that sounds like something human beings would actually say.
Some amount of surprise.
And if we're literally talking about the script itself: PROOFREADING!
If you were offered to write a Transformers series, would you be willing to do so?
I have already. Wrote an episode of Transformers Prime and multiple episodes of Transformers Rescue-Bots.
In your opinion what makes Superman such a great character?
Truth, Justice and the American Way. (Though what I consider the American Way and what others consider the American Way may differ.)
Rewatching YJ on Netflix. In The Fix, Kaldur responds to Black Manta's presence after six hours of psychic therapy by M'gaan and Artemis. In Complications, it is revealed that Kaldur is fully healed and is only feigning his catatonia to maintain their cover. This is roughly fifty days (from April 9 to May 27). My question is this: at what point in that period is Kaldur actually healed fully? To put it another way, how long did the three have to keep up the pretense?
On one level or another, the whole time. If you're asking when his healing was "perfected," within that span, I don't know how to answer that. It's not like a switch was flipped. It's a process. He may not be 100% over it even now.
1: Have any of the Justice League gotten into a scuffle: As in the general hero meet and great of fighting with fists and blasts?
2: Do any of the Justice League have statues or museums in honor of them
3: Can Superboy vote?
4: Are the Justice League involved in politics (Do they endorse political candidates or take sides in issues like LGBT marriage or guns?)
1. If I'm understanding you right, then no.
2. Besides the Hall of Justice?
3. Which season are we talking about?
4. No spoilers.
Did Dick ever have romantic feelings for Artemis?
Hello, Greg. Hope you're doing well.
Dropping in with another question. I hope it doesn't go into spoiler territory, but I apologize in advance if it does. I searched the archive and did not see it (then again, the archive is so massive, I may have overlooked it and for that I also apologize in advance).
The question has been bugging me for a while and it's regarding Young Justice: Invasion, particularly the episode "Endgame":
Is Black Beetle (in his original form after his scarab is destroyed via Blue Beetle), that is, is his species from the planet Rimbor or Raan or somewhere else? (I mainly ask because I thought his design was awesome. Phil did a wonderful job!)
Wish you well and I appreciate you taking the time to acknowledge my question (:
He's from the Reach homeworld.
OK, first of all: love YJ and I really hope to see a season 3.
Second: who is your favorite character out of all the villains, heroes and civilians in YJ, like Cat Grant or Green Beetle?
Mine is Blue Beetle and Impulse, they just make the best friends (Kinda ship BluePulse. Definitley see something there other than friendship, but it just might be the fact that Impulse just cares for him in the way that's like 'oh, I don't want you to conquer the Earth, so I'm gonna take care of you' way).
I really like Blue for the fact that he tries so hard not to succumb to the scarab and become super freaking evil. Also, he helps with me get a teensy bit ahead in Spanish. I like Impulse for the fact that he's like me, impulsive (Pun intended), eats a lot of food, is funny, and just tries to keep his friends safe. Thank you so much for the show, it was basically my late childhood and early teenage antidote from school and stuff.
Really hoping for a season 3!
2. I don't have a single favorite.
Hello Mr. Weisman,
I'm very much a writer like yourself and am trying to break into the animation industry with a story of my own; its tone and maturity much like Young Justice, which I loved by the way (Go Robin!).
My questions are:
1.) How much should I have in my story's portfolio before I pitch my idea to various networks? I already have concept drawings, practice scripts, and I'm having an independent studio make three animated shorts, but what would you suggest?
2.) Who, generally, should I know or get to mentor me in breaking into the industry? I was trained as an Engineer before realizing my true passion for storytelling.
3.) Any other tips I may have missed?
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
1. Less is more. You already have way more product/content than I'd use to pitch an original idea. The thing you may be missing is experience. But you never know. Sometimes they go for it.
2. As many folks as possible. Networking is an important skill.
3. Proofread religiously.
Have you read Buffy the Vampire Slayer Seasons Eight, Nine and Ten?
I read Season Eight, in a very disjointed way. Meant to sit down and read it through with more coherence after the fact, but never got around to it. And haven't yet read - or purchased - seasons nine and ten.
Regarding Justice League designations 27 and 28, were these designations taken by 4th July Team Year Six, or were they only assigned after the end of season 2?
After. The only new designation assigned by July 4th was B-26 for Static.
Is Oberon capable of love? Does he love his wife and biological children? Did he marry Titania for shallow reasons (like her beauty, power, and status)? I get this feeling if his sons were to die, he would not care.
You'd be wrong.
He, of course, loves Titania and his children.
I'm not even sure what you're basing your assumptions on.
Do you remember the Gargoyles board game that came with a VHS back in the 90s? In the beginning of the video, David Xanatos will taunt the players. One part I find humourous is when he laughs maniacally. It seems so out of character for him to do. Did that part bother you? We don't see Xanatos laugh in the show. In the video, he is laughing like a saturday morning cartoon villain.
I remember it fondly. I don't particularly remember that bothering me. (I know I was there for the recording.) I'd have to look at it again to be sure.
I've seen a running theme of father issues: Superboy & Superman (although they resolved that as brothers instead), Artemis & Sportscaster, Aqualad & Black Manta, a little bit of Zatanna & Zatara.
Was it accidental or intentional?
I dunno, honestly.
Many of these issues were built into the comics we were adapting.
Or some of it may come from my own fears as a father.
But there are mother issues too. Artemis & Paula. M'gann & Marie. Etc.
Why did u and brandon choose Wally's death as one of the best choices as a hole for the show....not to mention his relationship with Artemis was my favorite and Wally was also my favorite character. I know that you are not going to change it because it already is as it is...Wally and i connected...i just did not agree with seeing Wally's friends and especially Artemis go through all that pain...i suffered too, he ment a lot to me,.. I would just like to know why please..i feel like Wally was trying to do wright with his buetiful beloved Artemis.I liked the relationship by the way...you r amazing too...really great at what you do....but why did u and ur partner decide to do that.Not asking for your future plans..or Spoilers of course but WHY??...thank u for you time...#ilovewallyandartemis best ever.cant wait for SEASON 3
There are a lot of complicated reasons. But fundamentally, it comes down to this:
Because we knew it would hurt.
