Hi Greg. I have some questions about Rocket/Raquel if you don't mind me asking. Forgive me if any are "spoiler-ish"

1) Did you ever have plans to explore Rocket and Icon's differing economic/social beliefs in future seasons/comics? I understand that it would've probably been difficult since those are potentially controversial topics for a children's network, but I feel like you're savvy enough to have explored it discretely.
2)What team member would you say Raquel was closest to after joining the team? I always subconsciously imagined Artemis since to me they seem to have similar personalities and economic backgrounds. But then she's also in the "new girl" boat with Zatanna
3)When first joining the team, did Raquel have trouble adjusting? Seeing as she joined at the height of activity with the Light and dynamics within the team were already established, it seems like it would be easy to feel a little like the odd man out if I were her.
4)I try not to assume that everything canon in DC comics is automatically canon in the show, so I was wondering if Virgil and Raquel actually knew each other before his abduction? Did you ever have plans for them to interact in season 2 before the episodes got cut to 20?

Thanks loads for answering our questions and creating Young Justice in the first place. I'm rewatching it on Netflix for the millionth time and buying comics and dvds when I can, just 'cause I like it that much. And good luck with your books!

Greg responds...

1. Given enough issues and/or episodes, sure. But it wasn't a priority. (Though it interests me a lot.)

2. I'll leave that to your imagination, based on the little bits of evidence you have. But I think its clear that she and Zatanna wound up being close. And she was clearly interested in Aqualad.

3. Again, you saw how she was adjusting. She was definitely playing catch-up, but she seemed to fit in pretty well and integrated pretty darn quickly.

4. They're both from Dakota City. I'm not going to reveal whether they knew each other. There were no specific plans to have them interact in season two.
