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!
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.
1. Were Wally and Artemis sexually active with each other in season 2?
2. Did they retired before or after start to live together?
3. Did Artemis used to forget Valentine's Day like Wally?
2. No spoilers.
3. Not so much.
Hi. I'm sure this question has been asked before. It might even be me who ask it, but for the life of me I can't find it anywhere no matter how hard I search.
Why wasn't Wonder Girl abducted by Kylstar? Was it because he didn't consider her strong enough? Or, was it because that as a relative newb she was unknown to him? Or, was it because of some other reason?
Basically, he didn't think she was mathematically strong enough.
will the Young Justice Comics (2011-2013) be re-printed because of Young Justice season 3 coming out?
I doubt it. But it's all available at Comixology and on the DC App.
During their time at Gotham Academy, were Dick and Barbara in the same grade? Or was one of them in the grade below?
Same grade, though she's a year younger. (She skipped a grade.)
Hey Greg. Today Is The Day!
Yeah these are gonna be Young Justice Question(s). Here are my Questions:
1.Why did, After Red Arrow and Green Arrow had to stop him from Killing Lex Luthor, they place Arsenal on the team when it was clear to the human eye that he was suffering from some form of Mental Instability?
2.Was Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Hawkgirl And Martian Manhunter going to court on Rimbor really Necessary? The League knew there was something going on with The Light and sending their big guns off world would severely limit their chances of trying to prevent The Reach from taking over the world.
Yeah these are the Questions me and my friend were discussing last night. We felt as though they were some big gaping plot holes in our opinion.
1. When did they stop Roy from killing Lex? That's not how I remember things going. Maybe you should watch it again.
2. For starters, they didn't know about the Reach when they left. Besides, there was a need to clear their names. I guess "necessary" is in the eye of the beholder.
1: Did Amanda Waller know that Superboy and Ms. Martian were replacing the Terror Twins and that the actual twins were to be swapped back in later?
2: What sort of crimes did Plastic Man commit before he became a hero? Any reason it took him 7 years to become a JL member?
3: Does Eel O Brien/Plastic Man retain his cold weaknesses from main comic world?
4: Do the villains on Earth 16 generally stick to a single city like normal continuity or are they more multi-city
5: Do any real life nations in the YJ earth not allow the Justice League in their borders the same way Biyalia doesn't.
2. No spoilers.
3. It depends how cold we're talkin'?
4. Every individual villain has his or her own M.O.
