I hope this isn't taken as an insult...but I really appreciate how the women are designed in Young Justice so that they're not all "flawless" looking. The reason I can't get more of my girl friends into comic stuff is because they feel like they objectify women by making it all about their appearances and not about their strength as heroes. However, in Young Justice, the characters are still beautiful but in their own individual ways and not the cookie cutter fan boy fantasy way. Was that a conscious effort?

Greg responds...

To the extent we've been successful at this, I'm going to say yes. But not just with the female characters. With the male characters too. And to be fair to most comics, I think the cookie cutter works both ways there too. Women aren't the ONLY characters being idealized.
