Hi Greg, I love YJ and have been watching since it first aired on CN, my question is, why did The Reach only abduct teens and no adults? Wouldn’t people be less likely to notice or look for missing adults than teens? Thanks even if you can’t answer!

Greg responds...

Teen runaways tend to have fewer connections to the world. They are traditionally more vulnerable. This is true with human-trafficking, which meta-human-trafficking was designed to be a metaphor for.

In addition, within the world of the show, an activated meta-human is of more use (and likely to have a longer shelf-life) if it starts out on the younger side.
