big time fan, love so much about the show. its like the next generation of cartoons. except for one gripe.
the dialogue, after watching spectacular spider-man, where one could actually envision a real person speaking those lines, i saw how a correct balance of realism and fantasy could be blended. Peter Parker would be going through spider-man situations with banter and conversations that outdid the Motion Pictures.
while young justice on the other hand, loses this major component that drew so many to spectacular spider-man, i know its unfair to compare that to anything considering how stand alone it was in the quality department but, i wouldn't if the dialogue in young justice, by consensus, wasn't so noticeable off than your previous efforts.
aqualad, and superboy MIGHT get away with a few natural sounding lines, but everyone recording voices in the main cast BLEW it when establishing their character's voice tone and delivery.
kid flash sounds like a father trying to imitate his son.
miss martian really does sound like an alien, in the sense that the voice actor speaks like she has never heard the English language. that's not a good thing.
robin... i can deal with the pre-puberty angle but for his actor being one of the most high profile on the show... what material are you guys giving him for real. when it comes to robins dialogue, the people who test and feedback on these lines obviously have too much respect for this writing team to break the bad news to them,
The grand scope of this storyline is incredible, the animation is bar none, again, huge fan. But with all of the blood, sweat, and tears that i know have been put into this work of art, how on earth did anyone approve "hello megan?", or robin's 13 year old S.A.T. word of the day (terbed? yall set your self up for all the backlash/insults from that gimic.)
I wish it was just my opinion but you know, the internet these days Greg, if everyone's saying it its fact. I'll watch regardless, please believe that, but just know i'm a die hard, your losing others fast.
Well, obviously it's not "fact". That's just silly.
I get that a percentage of people share your opinion.
But guess what? I do NOT. Not even a little bit. Not even slightly. And this OBNOXIOUS and completely hyperbolic tirade just makes me want to ignore whatever legit concerns you might have.
So congrats. You've insulted a ton of hard-working people and pissed me off AND accomplished NOTHING beyond (maybe) making yourself feel superior at the expense of a show you profess to love and be a big fan of.
Was it your intention or that of the episode writer to put in so many obscure 80s Batman or Denny O Neil references? You have got Infinity Island, Ojo, Sensei, Hook from the Deadman stories and Black Spider, someone has to be a big fan of this material to remember all of this stuff from 30 years ago.
I'm the fan, but I'm not sure it was an "intention" so much as that all that stuff just swirls around my head to pull out as needed. When you start dealing with the League of Shadows (i.e. Assassins), who ELSE would you trot out?
Really enjoying Young Justice so far!
1. One of the things I like most about the show is the attention to detail you've given to the characters and the world. How exactly did you plan out which characters/locations(even peripheral ones) you were going to use for the show? Was it something where you made a list of people/places you wanted to use and how they relate to one another prior to the beginning of production in a "series bible" or does it grow and change from episode to episode?
2. Seeing as how Superman is apparently the first superhero in this universe and has only been active for about 10 years at the start of the series where does that put groups like the JSA or heroes such as Spy Smasher or the Crimson Avenger?
1. Both, really.
2. Supreman's first in the modern era. As you've seen, the JSA pre-dates him and included (at minimum) Jay Garrick/Flash and Kent Nelson/Nabu/Doctor Fate.
I am wondering how many seasons you have planned for "Young Justice"?
Well, we see it as pretty open-ended. We're currently breaking down Season Two, but part of that is wading through the TONS of ideas we have and eliminating those that don't fit the mini-series format of the 10-episode order.
We plan to do a number of these ideas in the companion comic. Others we're saving for an expanded Season Two and/or Season Three. But frankly, I can't see running out of stories to tell for this series, so we'll keep going as long as WB, DC & CN allow us... in whatever medium they allow us.
In episode 7, Denial, I noticed at the beginning Artemis and Miss M were talking about who should go with who. It seemed like they were trying to dump each other with their other teammates. Do they both haave a flair for Superboy ?
Uh... they both have crushes on Superboy, so in a winking way, Artemis was encouraging Miss Martian to date Aqualad instead, so Miss Martian countered (also with a wink) that Artemis date Kid Flash.
where is kid flash going to keep all the souvenirs he finds at the end of each episode?
If he gets one each episode are we going to see them again?
By now, you've hopefully seen he's got a trophy room of sorts. Or, in any case, a bookcase in the Cave where he keeps them.
hey Greg, loving Young justice right now. All the twist and turns are really confusing me.
I got to ask you from watching episode 6 does Artemis have some kind of crush on superboy and Miss Martian is getting jealous or was it a one time thing.
I think Artemis clearly has a crush on Superboy. Initially, Miss Martian was jealous - but made a conscious decision NOT to be that girl.
Will Artemis's Backstory Be On The Show? After Seeing Episode 6 I Think Artemis Has Some Connections To Cheshire And The Light.
Yo Greg, sorry I've kinda fallen behind with these reviews but life sometimes gets in the way. Anyway, I enjoyed this ep a lot. I have to admit I did find Superboy's anger issues a bit one not in "Welcome to Happy Harbor" even though I did understand why it was so. Lets face it, being raised in a tube by psychic goblins is probably going to leave you a little lacking in social skills. But this ep, (and to a certain extent "Drop-Zone") has done a great job of letting us see other sides of his character, as well as exploring the underlying reasons for all that anger.
I particularly liked his exchange with Clark, poor kids practically giving Big Blue puppy dog eyes. Not that I don't sympathise with Clark. Even with the best will in the world, dealing with your own clone/son has got to be a pretty daunting prospect. If I were brutally honest, I'd have to admit Clark is handling this way better then I would be. I know if I met a clone of myself, my first instinct would probably be to reach for a torch and pitch fork. Hardly the rational or ethical response I'll readily admit, but luckily the Man of Steel is a lot more level headed then me.
Loved Peter MacNicol as Professor Ivo, he brought a great sense of humour and menace to the character without making him sound like a clone of Doc Ock. I just dig the idea tha this short skinny middle-aged nerd is able to strike terror into the hearts of the Justice League. I also noticed that his character design has a very similar colour scheme to AMAZO, red hair and green clothes. I loved this because it neatly explains AMAZO's goofy silver design, Ivo designed the android to basically look like and idealised version of himself, brilliant! Hope we see the M.O.N.Q.I.s again. J
Black Canary was pretty cool, it's good to hear Vanessa Marshall again. I've heard she's your favourite DC character so I'm interested to see how you handle her.
All and all another great ep, I'll try and get my "Infiltrator" review up sometime tomorrow.
Vanessa Marshall is indeed my favorite DC character, so she'll be joining the Justice League in Season Two. Since Vanessa will be voicing/playing herself, we'll be recasting Black Canary to avoid confusion. Our leading candidates are all single-named celebrities: Roseanne, Cher, Lindsay, Madonna or Prince.
Oh, and in case it hasn't been clear for this and the last four questions as well: APRIL FOOLS!!!!!!
loving what you're doing with the show and obviously I have some questions
1. Is there any relation between Artemis and Onyx Adams in any way cause I believe that they may have some common past.
2. Is the Superboy/Miss Martian/Kid Flash love triangle last just the first season?
3. I there going to be some sort of love/hate relationship between Artemis and Kid Flash like Miss Martian says in Denial??
It'd be great if you'd answer atleast one without saying no comment.
1. Artemis and Onyx are deeply in love.
2. What love triangle? Miss Martian and Kid Flash have been sleeping together since episode four.
3. Again, I don't know what you're referring to. Artemis and Kid Flash will be revealed to be second cousins. They get along fine.
