Whew, finally finished an archive crawl regarding Lex Luthor to make sure this hasn't been asked before...
Anyhow, I know this is toeing the line as far as NO SPOILERS goes, but you answered a similar question regarding Aunt May.
What is the 'core truth' of Lex Luthor, and how did you interpret this in YJ?
I don't know about SPOILERS, but this definitely falls into the category of what's on screen is what you get. But I'll give it a bit of a shot.
This isn't, of course, the Lex Luthor I grew up with. I grew up with something closer to Mad Scientist Lex. But the character has undergone a real sea-change since those days. The newer version (which is at least thirty years old at this point) is a sophisticated and smooth wheeler-dealer. Our version is ALSO a brilliant scientist, but you'd never know it given what we've put on screen. He's also a captain of industry. Very unflappable. He is Man and his resources at a pinnacle as an opposite number to Superman and his powers. He's someone that Superman can't punch, which makes him more dangerous than all of Superman's other opponents put together.
What inspired you to create Young Justice?
Okay, for starters, I didn't 'create' Young Justice.
BRANDON VIETTI and I adapted Young Justice, based on the DC UNIVERSE. The "inspiration" was our boss at Warner Bros Animation, Sam Register, telling us to do it.
Since Demona is still around as of the Gargoyles 2198 spinoff, that means MacBeth is still around as well. I know you won't discuss any actual plans for the character (SPOILERS!), but can you tell us if you had specific plans for him? Or did the outline for 2198 not get that far?
I have plans for everyone and everything.
1. If clone Roy is a stay at home dad, does Jade have a job to provide income for them? 2.Have clone Roy and Jade ever both started to wear glasses (not shades) at any point after the real Roy found?
Hey Greg, How's life?
Anyway, I'm curious to know if any of the team (from YJ) can play any musical instruments? (Any generation of the team).
Thanks for being awesome.
I'm sure a few can. I haven't thought about it.
You once said that M'gann Is not close to any of her siblings.
1)not even with her white brother?
2)that means that she doesn't love them or miss them At all? Does she miss her parents?
3)Did her siblings (or her mother) ever rejected her or they respect each other because they are family?
4)Does her family knows about her status of hero on earth? Are they proud of Her?
Did I say that? I mean, did I say that exactly? Or are you paraphrasing? In any case, everything's relative (pun intended).
1. She is relatively close to him.
2. It doesn't mean that. She loves her siblings - all of them, and her parents. She misses them (or most of them) too. But she feels her life is on Earth. Also, don't assume she hasn't been back to Mars.
3. No spoilers.
4a. Responses vary, but most are proud of her.
Dear Greg, I just wanted to say I'm wishing luck to you and everyone involved with young Justice season 3.
I wanted to ask who are your top 4 favorite robins, and what you like about them.
Geez, top 4 Robins. How many are there? Dick, Jason, Tim, Stephanie, Damien and Carrie, if you count Dark Knight. Harper, if you count Bluebird, right? Throw in a Bat-Girl and some Batgirls, and you've got Bette, Barbara, Cassandra and Stephanie again. Then Batwoman's Kate. Nightwing's Dick again. Bette again with Flamebird. Barbara again with Oracle. Stephanie again with Spoiler. Luke. Batwing. Ace the Bat-hound. Bat-mite. Cassandra's Orphan. Azrael. Even Clayface. Wow, when you count 'em up, Batman's a protogee machine, isn't he?
And I'm sure I'm leaving some out.
I felt sorry for Billy/Captain Marvel in "Secrets." I imagine that being a superhero doesn't leave him a lot of time to have friends his own age. I'd like to know... After the team learned Captain Marvel's true identity, were they more accepting and understanding of Captain Marvel/Billy desire to "hang" with them?
I'd like to think so.
But Billy does have friends of his own, too.
When the Injustice League attacked, what happened to the victims of Joker toxin? Did they die or were they cured? Does an antidote to Joker toxin exist? Who made it?
I'll leave that to your imagination.
What are your thoughts on the return of Samurai Jack?
I'm happy for my buddy Phil LaMarr. But I haven't ever seen the show myself. That's not meant as a comment on it. I just never got around to it.
