A Station Eight Fan Web Site
I am a big fan of the Gargoyle cartoon (havenÂ´t read the comics though, just read about some of the things that happens in them online, but I really donÂ´t know much about them, beside the whole time-dancer plot)and I admirer your imagination for creating them.
I got some question about the trio
1. How many gargoyles were hatched in their rookery, and did some leave the clan before the masqare?
2.How close were they to their other rookery siblings?
3.How bad was the masqare effect them and how much do they miss the ones who are dead
4. How much do they miss Scotland and the 10. century (I know itÂ´s clear that theyÂ´ve adjusted well to Manhattan and the 20. century, but still)
5. How close were they to anyone outside of their own rookery
6.How close are they to the mutants and Matt Bluestone.
1a. Don't remember the exact number off the top of my head. And I don't have my Gargoyles notebooks here at my WB office.
2. Close to some.
3. I'll let you use your imagination for this one.
4. Sometimes more than others.
5. Close to some.
6. Mutates? It's a mix. As for Matt, Broadway's probably closest to him. But they all get along.
Did Hudson influence Goliath's decision at all as to who should've been Goliath's second in command?
If something had happened to Goliath before he had chosen a second in command, I would assume that Hudson would've become leader at first, but then would choose someone else to lead since he's older and believes that a younger leader would be best (which is indicated in the episode Upgrade). If this was the case, who would Hudson have considered becoming the new leader of the clan? Would he have based his decision along the same lines as Goliath, or would he have looked for other qualifications?
Thank you for your time and all that you do,
Hudson and Goliath are two different guys... but I still think Hudson would have ended up choosing Brooklyn.
Any characters you were surprised to see becoming popular? The ensemble darkhorse in other words.
What series are we talking about here?
I guess I'll assume we're talking Gargoyles. And, no, not really. Perhaps I underestimated the Trio's popularity a bit, but I never thought they'd be UNpopular. But we can pretty much see who's popping as we're making the series.
Have Angela, the Trio, and Bronx ever killed someone? I don't mean like in the show, but back in the 10th Century? With Hudson, Goliath, and Demona being as battle hardened as they are it's sort of obvious they've done the deed, but I've always been curious to the younger members of the clan.
Well, not Angela. But I think it's very possible that Bronx and/or the Trio might have. And almost definite that Brooklyn did at Rathveramoen.
I've noticed that in Gargoyles, Lexington is much smaller and much more naive than all of the other characters. Is he any younger than the others, or is this simply his design/nature?
I don't think he is more naive. He's not any younger than Broadway. He is smaller.
G2009 Radio Play - Act Three
Norman Osborn was a fool. So obsessed with the power of science, he kept the Crown of Thorns in this vault as if it was just another souvenir – albeit an expensive one – to hang upon his wall. But with the Crown and the Spear of Destiny together, I now have the power to force all of humanity to its knees.
These are Christian icons, Demona. Not every human being is a Christian.
Not every human being speaks Latin, but that didn't stop me from using a Latin spell to turn a city-full of humans to stone. The magic I wield is potent beyond measure. Mine is the Kingdom and the Power and the Glory. No human may resist. No human will be spared. None will be spared who oppose me. Just look at this fool…
Her name is Obsidiana.
Of course it is. For she wears the mystic Obsidian pendant fashioned by human sorcerers. Even that is enough to put her in my thrall. She has relinquished her gargoyle birthright.
I have relinquished nothing.
Demona waves the Spear of Destiny, and Electro rises and blasts Goliath back into the wall.
Yes, I'm surprised you're unaffected… since you reek of humanity. The stink of your human whore is in your hair, on your lips, everywhere. And nothing in this world will give me more pleasure, Goliath, than watching your detective on her knees to me, as she draws her service revolver and thanks me with tears of joy in her eyes… before gratefully blowing out her own brains.
That will never be.
No? My power expands with every second. I doubt she's far away.
You will not harm Elisa.
Goliath advances on Demona. Electro blasts away, but Goliath will not be stopped…
No one ever said you weren't persistent, Goliath. But what do you hope to gain?
(through gritted teeth)
I will turn these forces back upon you.
Impossible. I am the last true gargoyle left on this world. The Crown's magicks cannot touch me.
So you believe. But I am not the only one who reeks of humanity. Am I… Dominique?!
Goliath grasps the crown. The thorns bite into his hands, drawing blood. They struggle for control of the immense power…
691. GOLIATH, DEMONA
<roaring to the heavens>
Goliath's intervention – and his complete immunity to the Crown's effects – creates the smallest of fluctuation in Demona's control. In a haze, Spider-Man lifts his arm…
He shoots off a web, yanking the bloody crown from Demona's head.
There is a massive explosion of mystic energy and light! Demona, Goliath and Electro collapse.
The Spear… the Crown…
Gone. I think they… blew up. Calypso's gone too. But I'm betting that's just a talent of hers. And I'd guess she's taken Kraven and the pussycat with her.
But the Big Bad's still here…
Leaving behind, as always, nothing but a handful of thorns…
Goliath, Spider-Man and Demona sit. Jonah, Elisa, Matt and George STAND.
While Goliath helps Obsidiana, Spidey webs up Demona, Electro and Ock. In the outer vault, Zafiro and the Trio recover, finding only an unconscious and de-venomed Eddie Brock. Outside, the bad guys have all been beaten. Goblin and Vulture, their tech badly damaged, barely manage to fly away. Carnage and Jupiter are once again Cletus and John.
I'm here, Johnny. Your old Pop's here…
Call an ambulance, Elisa. Old Man Dracon said something about seeing a light. Then he collapsed. A stroke or something. I've been giving him C.P.R.
Matt… Matt! You can stop. Stop. He's gone.
You're gargoyles are flying off, Detective.
Really? Not sure I see 'em myself. But is that Spidey web-slinging away?
You think? I must have missed him?
Are you all blind?! They're right over there!
714. GEORGE, MATT, ELISA (UNISON)
Oh, give it a rest, Margot…
Elisa, Matt, George, Margot and Jonah sit. Peter, May, Harry and Gwen STAND.
Back at the bus…
I'm back. And not a single decent picture to show for my efforts.
Well, you tried your best, Peter. I'm sure Mr. Jameson will appreciate that.
Oh, yeah. He's a sweetheart that way.
Emily Osborn watches as her son finally emerges from the bathroom.
Hey, Gwen. I feel much better.
Harry, Gwen, Peter and May sit. Jonah and Robbie STAND.
Later that night, at The Bugle…
Whaddayou mean I can't publish it?! How else can I make them all pay for what they did to Johnny!
You can't publish because the authorities refuse to comment. We have no pictures or statements to corroborate a story that includes gargoyles, a dead Green Goblin and everything except the kitchen sink. No one will believe it. I was there, and I don't believe it! Print this, Jonah, and The Bugle becomes the next Daily Tattler.
Ms. Brant, call the bomb squad. BECAUSE I'M ABOUT TO EXPLODE!!
Jonah and Robbie sit. Gwen, Peter, Kong, Curt, Harry, EMILY OSBORN and Mary Jane STAND.
Later still, aboard OsCorp's private jet en route to Miami…
I still can't believe we ran into you in the airport parking lot, Doctor Connors.
Yeah, and we're so sorry you got mugged.
Dude, they took your shoes?! That's hilarious! <laughs>
Yes, well, I just really appreciate the ride back to Florida…
Anytime, Doctor C. Anytime.
Harry, could I have a moment… in your father's office?
Uh, sure, Mom.
Curt, Kong and Gwen sit.
734. MARY JANE
736. MARY JANE
Tiny. Cute enough, but it's like talking to a tree stump.
Tried to warn you.
738. MARY JANE
Just say we'll spend the week as a threesome, okay, Tiger.
740. MARY JANE
Not that kind of threesome.
Mary Jane and Peter sit.
Meanwhile, Harry follows his mother Emily into the jet's private office.
I know you were playing at being the Goblin, Harry.
What?! Mom, that's crazy! I was in the bathroom…
Don't lie to me, baby. You hired the worst chauffer in the city to delay our progress. You had a secret hatch installed in the bus bathroom, so you could slip in and out undetected. And you left a pre-recorded "vomit tape" with voice recognition software. All very impressive for a sixteen-year-old. But you need to understand… the Green Goblin is not what your father wanted for you.
I have no idea what Dad wanted for me…
Then let him tell you…
She slips a DVD into the computer and Norman Osborn appears on screen…
NORMAN OSBORN STANDS.
Harry, my son. If you are watching this, then I am dead. And I have instructions…
Norman, Emily and Harry sit. Big Man, Blackie and SHARI STAND.
Meanwhile at the Big Man's office, he and Blackie Gaxton are visited by Shari, a young woman wearing a pendant depicting an eye atop a pyramid…
750. BIG MAN
Nine. Any problems?
753. BIG MAN
Not particularly. Ms. Destine was ready to believe I could find Dracon and the others useful.
And that faux Goblin was happy to believe I'd been fooled into thinking he was the real thing.
Blackie removes his false face, revealing that he is actually the Chameleon in disguise.
Just as he was happy to believe I was the real Blackie Gaxton. But I'm still not sure why the Society wanted all this…?
Isn't it enough to know the Illuminati appreciates your efforts?
CHAMELEON and Big Man sit. THAILOG, BRENTWOOD, Homunculus #1, Homunculus #2 And Homunculus #3 STAND.
Shari leaves Lincoln's office and pulls out her cellphone…
Dial Nightstone Unlimited.
The Spear? The Crown?
Waiting for you to send to Duval.
Brentwood capture little robot. Use it to control other little robots. When bright light shine, robots take spear and crown.
What should we do with the Homunculi?
Set them free. Maybe they'll get their own series some day.
767. HOMUNCULUS #1
Free, free, set them free…
768. HOMUNCULUS #2
On basic cable and DVD…
769. HOMUNCULUS #3
Homunculus #3, Homunculus #2, Homunculus #1, Shari, Thailog and Brentwood sit. Elisa and Goliath STAND.
At the castle, Elisa's cell rings.
Maza… Yeah, Captain Stacy said you might call. Sure, he's right here.
She hands the phone to Goliath, who doesn't quite know how to hold it. She takes it back and puts the call on speaker.
Hey, Goliath. It's your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man.
You protect your… neighborhood.
Just like you do the super-hero thing without the tights.
Spider-Man, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
Hey, I was just gonna say that. You saw that movie too?
God, I love you… <kiss>
Elisa, Goliath and Spider-Man sit. Kafka STANDS.
And finally – yes, finally – we end where we began. In the offices of Dr. Ashley Kafka at Ravencroft. She's on the phone to her Board of Directors.
After all that tsuris, little has changed. Otto and Eddie are still disassociative. Max still needs a cure, and John still wants power. Cletus? He just keeps repeating, "I got a taste now," over and over. Yes, we lost Dominic, I'm afraid. But we do have a new patient…
783. KAFKA (CONT)
Just wait until the sun goes down…
Dominique and Kafka sit.
NEXT: I finally get back to answering questions...
Hudson has or had a biological child in Goliath's generation, the Trio's generation, and Bronx's generation. That means that Goliath and the Trio would have considered him one of their rookery fathers and Hudson regards them as his rookery children. (I'm guessing he regards Bronx somewhat differently, though correct me if I'm wrong.) So why do we never hear Goliath or any of the Trio calling Hudson "father" or him referring to any of them as "son"?
Their relationships are MORE specific than that. When you have a LOT of fathers (back in the day), many different varieties of relationships develop in addition to the paternal-filial. That doesn't mean they don't consider Hudson a rookery father, but it's not how they define him.
can you tell us what lex and broadways reactions to brooklyn having a fammily will you make them jealouse
Time will tell.
This is more of a Wyvern Clan culture question than a hypothetical one.
After Goliath sends the Trio and Bronx to the rookery and Demona questions his decision to punish them (out of their earshot like a good second, as you noted in the commentary), Goliath tells her that he will make it up to them somehow. If the Wyvern Massacre hadn't intervened, what are some things Goliath might have done to make it up to the Trio and Bronx?
I'm not sure he even knew. Probably a heart-to-heart and a little winging.
is eliza like a surrogate mother to the trio?
More like a big sister.
