Happy to see Black Spider back in action in the latest season of Young Justice. Given how his skill set is so different from the comic Black Spider, who's idea was it to make the show's incarnation Peter Parker's evil twin? With how similar Black Spider is to Spectacular Spider-Man, even sharing the same voice actor, did any of the higher ups attempt to stop the character's creation in fear of upsetting some lawyers?

Greg responds...

1. It was my idea, basically. But I disagree that he's that different from the comic Black Spider. Admittedly, there have been multiple interpretations of that character, even multiple individuals who have used that name. But classically, he was always a Spider-Man pastiche.

2. Nope. The existing DC character seems to have given us cover.
