Is Talia al'Ghul on Earth-16 multiracial (Arabic/Chinese on both her parents' sides) like in the comics (at least pre-Flashpoint)?

Greg responds...

Talia is biracial or multi-ethnic or something. (I'm not trying to be dismissive, but I'm honestly not sure of the appropriate term these days.)

Ra's is Arabic. Melisande is European.

But where are you getting Chinese? (And, no, Sensei is NOT Ra's father on Earth-16.) There's a SPOILER, I guess.

Hi Greg!
1. Does Sportsmaster realize he is bad (not good/perfect) father?
2. Does he care?

Greg responds...

1. I'm sure he doesn't think he was perfect.

2. I'll leave that to your interpretation.

Was Marie Logan's death reported on the news?

Greg responds...

Yep. As a car accident.

Hi!!!!!! Huge fan of your show and quick question. In young justice comic issue 7, Artemis is waiting for her mother at a bus stop, and her mother asks if her father is coming. Does this mean that her father left her alone at a young age, and if he did what age was she when he left?

Greg responds...

I'm not even sure I understand the premise of your question. Artemis was living with her father, who came home later that night (in that very issue) and only departed after Paula gave him an ultimatum.

Good day Mr. Weisman
I'm a big fan of Dick Grayson, and as such I've read most of the Titans and Nightwing trades, but my interest in the character was sparked by watching Young Justice, so thanks for that. I was wondering: how would you describe him as a character? There have been varying depictions in the comics so I was wondering how you think of him. In YJ Season 2 he was very serious which reminded me of Nightwing from the Wolfman/Perez era. Anyway, I just wanted to know your thoughts. Sorry for the length of this, thanks for your time, and I hope you have a wonderful day!

Greg responds...

I could probably write a dissertation on Dick, but I'm not going to do that here. For the most part, I like to let the episodes and issues speak for themselves. I don't want to sound like I'm trying to justify anything.

But basically, I think Dick was a fun-loving kid who experienced a horrible tragedy, but had two adult male role (Bruce and Alfred) models who stepped up and gave him a way to work through his anger and grief and reclaim the fun-loving kid that he was

Dick is, to my mind, extremely competent, which was born out in both the Teen Titans series of the 60s & 70s and the New Teen Titans series of the 80s. And so with that competence, and with the hard-earned knowledge of the responsibilities of leadership learned as early as "Drop-Zone" and "Failsafe", comes the serious-minded Nightwing that we often see in Season Two.

But I don't think that's his natural disposition. Instead, I look to the Robin of the 40s and 50s. Dick is the acrobat. The trapeze artist. The performer. Dick is the kid who learned to disappear like Batman but finds it so funny, he can't stop himself from laughing. That's the real Dick Grayson. A kid/teen/young adult that is so winning and naturally guileless and honest that even his ex-girlfriends still love him. (That is his super-power, after all.) He knows how to do the other thing - and he's actually scary good at it. But he kinda hates that too.

Hi Greg
will the Young Justice Comics (2011-2013) be re-printed because of Young Justice season 3 coming out?

Greg responds...

I doubt it. But it's all available at Comixology and on the DC App.

Why does the Young Justice tie-in comic have lightning for the speedster but the show does not?

Greg responds...

It does? Where?

A non Beast Boy question~

Been exploring Earth 16 Atlantis a bit, a few things that seem evident or a bit off.

1. The scene arrangement in Issue 14 seems to allude to the city state origins of several Atlanteans, are these correct allocations:

-Lori Lemaris: Tritonis
-Lagoon Boy: Neptunos
-M'Chiste: Crastinus

2. Wyynde has similar tattoo markings on his collar/chest to Lagoon Boy in Season Two, is his sorcery specialisation in the same area (puffer/strength)?

Atlantean differences are stated to be due to diverging evolutionary paths. We see multiple "Merfolk" type Atlanteans in addition to others more varied subspecies. Assuming there would be many of each of these subspecies, characters such as the Lagoon Boy would likely not have an unusual appearance when in the area where this subspecies developed/migrated to.

3. However, Lagoon Boy in particular seems to consider himself unusual. Does this line of reasoning not hold for his appearance, or was his strangeness just highlighted for character building purposes as an issue faced by real teenagers frequently and not entirely due to his Atlantean physiology?

Greg responds...

1. Lori's definitely from Tritonis. I don't think we established where La'gaan is from, though it's not Posiedonis. M'chiste is from Posiedonis, but Garth is from Crastinus.

2. No. There are subtle differences in their skin-icons.

3. He's not unusual at home among his family. But on the surface world - and during the time of the Purists in Posiedonis - he definitely did not seem to fit in visually.

1a. How old is Deadshot
1b. Is Floyd Lawton his real name?

2. How is the standard living in Bialya compare to Qurac? Do the citizens live in poverty? Do they even have rights?

3. You said that 9/11 happened in Young Justice, and I was wondering if Hurricane Katrina, The 2008 Financial Crisis, and the BP Oil Spill happened as well.

Greg responds...

Floyd Lawton was born in 1975.

2. Qurac has a higher standard of living.

2a. Some do in both countries.

2b. Plenty of rights in Qurac. It's a mixed bag in Bialya.

3. Yes.

I've noticed this question asked a few times pertaining Gargoyles, but not Young Justice, so here I am. I don't think these count as spoilers since both Season One and Two have ended, but if they are, feel free to ignore them. Anyways:

1. Was Wally a virgin through Season One? If yes, did he lose it to Artemis between the first two seasons?
2. Was M'gann a virgin through Season One? If yes, did she lose it to Conner between the first two seasons?
3. Was Kaldur a virgin through Season One? If yes, did he lose it between the first two seasons?
4. Was Artemis a virgin through Season One? If yes, did she lose it to Wally between the first two seasons?
5. Was Dick a virgin through Season One? If yes, did he lose it to Zatanna between the first two seasons, or was Bette his first on his 19th birthday?

Greg responds...

1. Yes. I'm only answering this one, because it seems so damn obvious to me.

1a. No spoilers.

2. No spoilers.

2a. No spoilers.

3. No spoilers.

3a. No spoilers.

4. No spoilers.

4a. No spoilers.

5. No spoilers.

5a. No spoilers.

5b. No, Bette was not his first. (Again, that seems dead obvious to me.)
