I just recently watched all of Young Justice on a friend's recommendation and I am so enamoured with the world and the characters you and the rest of the YJ team developed, so thank you for that. I especially loved Artemis and her family, so I wanted to ask you a few questions about them:

1. What kind of mother is Paula? Obviously, after serving her sentence she's retired from crime and is a good parent to Artemis, but before her jail time, was she much the same or more like Sportsmaster? Did she also train Artemis and Jade to fight or do crime, or did she try to leave them out of it?

2. Were Artemis and Jade close before the year their mother was arrested and Jade left?

3. While she was in prison, did Paula keep in contact with Artemis or anyone else (through letters or visits)?

4. Did she already know any of the Leaguers when they approached her about Artemis from her villain days?

5. After season 2, does she see Artemis and Jade (and Roy) regularly? What about Sportsmaster?

Thanks for answering fan questions like this. It's a really cool thing to do.

1. Mostly, I want to answer this with a NO SPOILERS statement. But I'm in the mood, so I will say that Paula was less emotionally abusive but had no problem with Crusher's desire to train the girls for combat, and in fact participated in that training.

2. Yes and no. Artemis was close to Jade. Jade pretended she wasn't close to Artemis, which meant to a large degree, she wasn't.

3. Yes.

4. Those she had fought, yes.
