You've said that 179 DC characters will appear by the end of season one of Young Justice, and I have some questions regarding the character count.

1) Is Doctor Fate counted separately from Kent Nelson and Nabu since he's a merger of the two characters.

2) Were two of the reporters seen outside the Hall of Justice in "Independence Day" Lois Lane and Jimmy Olsen?

3) There's a character countdown list on the toonzone forums http://www.toonzone.net/forums/showthread.php?276163-quot-Young-Justice-quot-Character-Countdown-%28Spoilers%29. Would you mind revealing if anyone is missing from the countdown, or if someone's real name is misidentified?

1. I've got Fate, Nabu and Kent listed as three separate characters, because for legal reasons relative to DC Comics, they are separate. On the other hand, Batman and Bruce Wayne are considered one character, so the Fate thing is a special case, and not indicative of how secret identities were quantified.

2. I don't think so.

3. Sorry, but I'm not going to go to a separate website and vet that. I just don't have the time.
