if you were in the position of malcolm, is it good to exalt vengeance to anyone who offended you,why?
I'm not sure I understand the question. But I don't think it's ever good to "exalt vengeance".
Do you have any news regarding Young Justice? Also, please give us an alternative for Netflix in India. We don't use Netflix here. Would really like to contribute.
The news - which by now is probably old news - is that we have begun work on Season Three of Young Justice.
I don't know what to tell you about Netflix in India. Can you buy them on iTunes? Are the BluRays or DVDs on sale in India? Can you get the YJ companion comics on Comixology, the DC App or iTunes?
I have read that outside of the mating season, it was incredibly rare for a couple to conceive a gargoyle child, my question is this, is there any stigma that the clans put on such a unlikely birth? Or would the clan accept such an occurrence?
I'm sorry, WHERE did you read this? Cuz I don't think I EVER said rare. Never is the word I'd use. Or as close to never as you can get.
hi Greg i love young justice and i love what you did with certain characters and i wanted to ask you about beast boy
1) did he get his powers from miss martian? if so who does he only have the power of transforming into animals and not anything else and why doesn't he have any other powers?
2) if he did get his powers from miss martian why is he green? since she is actually a white martian?
3) and basically overall where does he get his powers from?
1. What you saw is what you saw. Anything beyond that would be a spoiler.
1a. No spoilers.
1b. No spoilers.
2. She was posing as green at the time, and her shape-shifting takes place at the cellular level.
3. You saw what you saw. Beyond that, no spoilers.

Hello Mr. Weisman!
Thank you so much for taking your time and giving us Fans the opportunity to ask questions:
Since rain of the Ghosts and Gargoyles include Supernatural Elements, I wondered: are YOU a believer of the Supernatural?
Yes and no.
I do believe in it, but I also believe its better to live and behave in this world as if none of that exists.
This is more an observation than a question, but I decided it was time to share it with you.
We've discussed before the truth of Goliath's saying in "M. I. A." how "human problems become gargoyle problems" - which certainly showed itself several times in the series, such as the struggles over the Scottish throne in the 10th and 11th century affecting the Scottish gargoyles. But more recently, it occurred to me that human conflicts and their consequences, even when they didn't directly involve gargoyles, could impact them.
The example I noted was the struggle over the Roman world between Julius Caesar's assassination in 44 B.C. and the fall of Egypt in 30 B.C., ending with Caesar Augustus firmly in control of Rome. Its outcome definitely affected the gargoyles; I can't imagine Mark Antony and Cleopatra being as shocked by gargoyles waking up from their stone sleep without clothes as Augustus was, certainly not enough to order the Roman Magus to cast the Spell of Humility over them.
I appreciate your answer to my first question posted here regarding my thoughts toward the nature of antagonists in stories. However, bear in mind that it had been months since I asked that question, and my thoughts and feelings on the subject had already changed by the time you answered. I realize that I could've thought it out better, as well as have applied better wording regarding how I asked the question. What I SHOULD'VE said in describing the types was this:
1. The kind who are selfish and just in it for themselves, not caring who gets hurt in the process.
2. The kind who believe they fight for a great cause and the betterment of others, but more often than not create a lot of damage and destruction to those around them, believing that it's for the greater good.
However, I can see why you would consider this type of thinking reductive, as it doesn't allow much room for complexity, and characters and people are not that simple. I do realize that everyone think's that they are justified in some capacity or another in their actions, and that they can still do bad things and not care as well. There are multiple kinds of villains, and they can have varying shades of the two kinds I mentioned.
The thing is, when I asked, I was still trying to get an idea of how to go about doing things, and I'd previously asked some writer friends what they thought on the matter, and they went along with the same line of thinking, leaning towards one type or the other.
Not to mention, because of a lot of things, including, but not limited to, my 900-MPH autistic brain, I end up having to rethink ideas over and over again in terms of what I'd like to do and what I don't want to do with the story. And as a result, I'm stuck working and reworking on a story that keeps changing. Regardless, my autism is not an excuse, but I hope it helps to explain things.
Anyway, I only wanted to apologize for upsetting you with the way my question was worded, and my line of thinking at the time. I didn't think it through fully, and you delivered some deserved-flack my way for it. It wasn't my intent to upset you the way I did, and I wholeheartedly regret doing so. My words were short-sighted and not well-thought out.
I'm trying to do better about the way characters should be, and I'm aware of what to keep my mind open about.
Here's the ugly truth. I don't remember our previous exchange. I can't search user names here, so I tried searching "antagonist," but nothing came up for that under RexBlazer1.
So I have no memory of what you suggested. And no memory of how I responded. I kinda doubt I was "upset". I rarely get upset here. I do get annoyed fairly often, so maybe I was annoyed. But I can't say for sure.
Everything you wrote this time sounds pretty good to me, however.
Why did Diane react to the gargoyles the way she did in Nigeria? ("Elisa you know these monsters?!?!") By this time she had already learned what happened to Derek/Talon. Wouldn't she just assume the gargoyles were other innocent victims of Sevarius's experiments?
If you say so. But obviously, we didn't see it that way.
What was the policy regarding drugs, guns and alcohol when making Young Justice? I remember Luthor and Ra's al Ghul making a toast with some liquor, but could you show an adult hero drinking beer? Could you show one of the kids in the Team using a gun?
Thank you for your time.
I don't know. Neither of those examples (or anything remotely like them) were things we asked to do or tried to do. Basically, however, we just did what we wanted and were offered no resistance. The glaring exception was that we were told we couldn't depict an openly homosexual relationship back then, which was extremely frustrating. This was a question I asked in a vacuum, by the way. We didn't attach the question to any two specific characters.
