I'm not exactly sure if this is a spoiler question, but here it goes:
Dick appears to be slowly transitioning into the role of leader of the group, stepping up to lead the team when Aqualad was felled to the "invaders", reassuring Zatanna when she doubted her abilities in "Misplaced", encouraging a fearful Artemis during the bout against Red Volcano. My question is this:

1) The look that Robin gives Aqualad when he vehemently denies that any of his team members are traitors - is that suspicion or shock over his naiveté?

On an unrelated note,

2) In "Misplaced", when Billy utters the name of immortal Shazam, does the plane teleport into another dimension, or is it merely destroyed?

Greg responds...

1. It's the seeds of doubt.

2. Neither, at that moment. He is transported to the adult dimension. The plane stayed right where it was, i.e. moving through the air of the kid dimension.

Hey Greg, I have to admit seeing Billy's uncle a little worried/scared was the best part of Misplaced for me. After seeing him act a little cold towards Billy on Alpha Male, but show that he really cared for Billy, honestly, satisfied me. 1. By the way, why did you guys make Billy "not homeless" anymore? Thanks for your time and keep up the good work.

Greg responds...

I don't know where you got the idea that Dudley was cold to Billy in "Alpha Male". I certainly didn't get that at all.

1. Urchins in the old fashioned sense don't exist. You have to go someplace pretty dark to have a homeless kid on his or her own in today's world. Billy doesn't seem THAT dark to us.

Paraphrased Antiyonder's appeal from the Comment Room:

"The Young Justice Wiki (http://youngjustice.wikia.com) incorporates info from Ask Greg, such as the often repeated age questions. So if you're (just talking to folks in general who tend to do so) going to ask for an age, look at the character articles on the wiki to see if it's there."

Greg responds...

Good plan.

A question about Atlantis:
Have you wondered that in a land with names like Orin, Orm, Mera, Tula, Kaldur'ahm, and Sha'lain'a, the name Garth sticks out like a sore thumb? Unlike any of the former names, it sounds so un-Greek (or un-Atlantean).

PS: I really like this incarnation of Garth. I hope to see more of him in future episodes.

Greg responds...

I don't know what does or doesn't qualify as Atlantean except what I learned MUST qualify based on the sources. Does Garth sound more or less "Atlantean" than Ronal or Blubber or Lori? I guess that's up to the ear of the beholder.

This is an addition to my previous post - I accidentally missed my first paragraph when I copied and pasted it:

To begin, I wanted to say that I really like "Young Justice" and what amazes me about the show in particular is how heavily serialized it is as an animated program. That is to say, very few US animated series attempt the same level of continuity and on-going storytelling. So, my questions here will mostly be about the serialized nature of the show.

Greg responds...

Uh. Okay. Thanks.

First of all, I've noticed that the approach as a whole is to make standalone/arc episodes. In other episodes, nearly every single episode so far has a self-contained storyline that additionally builds on the longer running plotlines.

Why did you choose to approach the series in such a way in particular? Was there perhaps talk that the series might become too complex for audiences to follow?

During the show's development stages, was there ever consideration of making the show a more standalone show in general? Or of making more two-part episodes that tackle a single standalone/arc plotline?

Or conversely, having multiple ongoing plots unfold over the course of one episode without resolution, leading to a cliffhanger ending and necessitating more episodes to bring everything to an end (I think it's referred to as the 'flexi-narrative' structure)?

Has there ever been any pressure (from the network, DC or outside forces) to de-serialize the show and make more standalone episodes that don't connect to the main arc of the season at all?

Do you ever feel that having only 22-minutes to tell a story hurts the quality of an episode, or forces you to rush through material?

Do you know pretty much every major plot beat of the season when you started writing the episodes or are certain key plot points figured out along the way?

Have you ever been in a situation where you decided to take the main story in a bit of different direction and so had to go back you to earlier episodes and re-write them to make sure everything fits together seamlessly?

Given that the first season so far has begun many different plot points, can we expect all of them to be resolved by the end of the first season or will certain threads carry over to next season and beyond? In other words, are the arcs self-contained or will they span multiple seasons?

Greg responds...

In the future, please NUMBER your questions.

1. I think it's the best of both worlds to have coherent stand-alone adventures (great yarns) that still forward an overall arc. That way anyone can enter at any time and pick up what's going on.

1a. I pitch my shows as "Episodic but Sequential" because that's how I prefer to work. No one's forcing me to do it this way.

2. No.

2a. No.

3. No.

4. No.

5. Not to rush, but we almost always feel like we're leaving out things that would add richness to stories and characters. I'd love to do hour episodes, which is NOT the same as doing two-parters.

6. We work it all out in advance.

7. Occasionally, we go back and adjust little details here and there.

8. Almost everything is on-going. But I hope episode 26 left everyone with an appropriate amount of open-ended closure. Also some things will be addressed in our companion comic-book.

Dear Mr. Weisman,

Thank you for all the wonderful work you've done from Gargoyles, to Spiderman, to Young Justice. Been a fan for years.

1) From your experience, what was more enjoyable to work with? Working on a show that was completely yours to control - Gargoyles - from character development, plot, and storyline? Or Spiderman and Young Justice where the basics has already laid out?

2) Was there more pressure to succeed working on Gargoyles because it was original and the creativity was your to control? Or was there more pressure to work on an adaption on Spiderman and Young Justice because the bar has already been set?

Greg responds...

1. They're different. Gargoyles is my baby. But in terms of the actual work, I don't think I had any more or less fun working on SpecSpidey, W.I.T.C.H. or YJ.

2. I think the pressure rises with each series, but I blame the internet more than anything inherent in the series. (I blame the internet for a lot, which is not to say I could go back to living without it.)

I have a few questions pertaining to Roy Harper.
1. Since he's 18, is he a high school senior? Or a college student?
2. What languages can he speak?
3. You metioned earlier that out of the orginal sidekicks, Roy was closest to Kaldur. What is his relationship with Robin and Kid Flash like?
4. This is more of a confirmation, actually: Artemis can speak Vietnamese, French and knows high school Spanish. Correct?

Greg responds...

1. He graduated high school and is now taking a year off.

2. English, obviously. Otherwise, I'm not sure.

3. Cordial and friendly. Even fraternal.

4. ASKED AND ANSWERED.

Hey Greg, so I was up late watching Conan (This is going somewhere I promise) and I saw that he had gone to the studios to make himself into a superhero and then he was put into the show as a little parody. Did you have anything to do with that? It was very good humor.

Greg responds...

I had just a TINY bit to do with it. I kibbitzed. That's all.

Hello,

1. My first question: How old is Zat-

Just kidding

2. My real question: In the episode Alpha Male, The Brain makes a comment about Captain Marvel having Achilles' courage, and states that it would have been better if he had his invulnerability instead. Was this a reference to the "Trials of Shazam" mini-series, where Achilles' courage was in fact swapped with his near invulnerability?

Thanks for your time!

Greg responds...

1. Why, you little-- Oh. Never mind.

2. Nope. Haven't read that one. But it is something that struck me years ago.

Hello Greg! Thanks so much for the great show! It's currently my favorite on tv and solely responsible for getting me back into comics again so DC should give you guys a cut of all those DC comics I buy now. Homefront has been my favorite episode but loved Schooled (for rewatchability) and all the rest too. Anyway a few questions!

1. I think the motorcycle Zatanna rode in Secrets (that was consequently blown up)was Robin's. A. Can you confirm this? B. Did she ask permission? C. Does Robin know it's fate? D. Will this be addressed in the comic or mentioned later? (I thought it would be mentioned in Misplaced, that's why I waited before asking this.)

2.A. Do you guys have any plans to attend New York Comic Con this year? B. If so, will there be a Young Justice panel? (I want to go to one and live on the East Coast so entirely selfish!)

3.A. Do you have any say or input on the type of merchandise that gets put out? B. If we fans have requests or suggestions is there someone/somewhere you can point us? (I want something other than Action figures. A mug, keychains, or a magnet set would be nice...heck! Even t-shirts!)

4. Are Superman and Batman best friends in this universe? (Sorry if this one is already answered, I did go to the archives but only got so far!)

That's all I can think of while I got you! Thanks for your time and great show~! I totally love Robin, Wally, and their bromance and look forward to more with them along with the rest of this great cast I fall more and more in love with! Billy! Zatanna! NUUU!

Oh, also wanted to mention I'd totally throw my excitement behind any podcast, youtube vids, or commentary you happened to do for the episodes!

Thanks again!
Summer

Greg responds...

1a. I honestly don't remember.

1b. I'd think she'd ask permission, but she is a bit mischievous.

1c. You're assuming it's his bike. I'm not confirming that.

1d. No, I have no plans to address this. Our guys live dangerous lives and do dangerous work. Batman supplies the bikes. I'm sure he knows that a little property damage is part of the gig. A bike is replaceable. Lives are not.

2a. Not that I know of. If that changes, I'll announce it here.

2b. Don't know.

3a. Say? No. Input? Yes.

3b. I wouldn't even know whom to point you to. Maybe Warner Bros. Consumer Products?

4. They're good friends. I don't know about best friends.

Hi Greg, just watched "Misplaced." I thought it was a great episode!

1. Why were the faces of The Light not "lighted-out" at the end of the episode, the way they were in their first appearances?
2. Was Sportsmaster's getaway driver the Riddler?
3. Do the five evil wizards featured in "Misplaced" all have different specialties and, if so, what are they?
4. It seemed like Zatara was unaware that Billy Batson was Captain Marvel. Is this true, and if so, did anyone else on the League know about Captain Marvel's secret identity prior to the events of this episode?
5. The Team didn't send out a signal asking other under-18 heroes to join them. Are they aware of other young heroes, specifically Rocket? Is the Justice League? (Seems like if the Justice League knows Icon, they probably know of Rocket)

Anyway, thanks so much for a great and for taking time to answer fans questions.

Greg responds...

1. They were communicating with people who already knew their identities.

2. No, but Riddler's getaway driver was Sportsmaster.

3. I'm sure to some degree they do, but I haven't worked them all out. But Blackbriar Thorn is a druid. Felix Faust is an alchemist. Wotan is an immortal Viking sorcerer (at least in his latest incarnation. Klarion is a Lord of Chaos. Wizard is a wizard.

4. Only Batman.

5. I'd guess they were aware of Rocket's existence. But Rocket and the Atlantean heroes were also busy. They were on their own. (The rest you probably know by now.)

2) Don't you think Donna should have a spot on the team instead? She's been benched since about 2008, while Cassie is included in the reboot and all.

"But as I've said to others who already asked the same basic question, I think you're viewing what happened in terms too black and white. I do NOT think that Superman is behaving out of character. He's been violated and is having problems dealing with it, getting his head around it. He's found a rationale in his head to justify his behavior toward Superboy, that for now at least, is working for him. I'm not going to defend his actions, nor will I be unsympathetic to them. It is, by design, a complex problem.

And no real human being has perfect empathy. And Superman is nothing if he's not thoroughly human.

In any case, I doubt I'm going to convince you, so we'll just have to agree to disagree for now. Perhaps, if you stay tuned and see how this thread plays out, you'll appreciate it more. Or perhaps not."

1) Why have Miss Martian and Superboy been trying to keep their relationship a secret? They've kept their displays of affection as private as possible and they switched to private telepathic communication in "Alpha Male" when there were tensions in their relationship that needed to be addressed.

2) Why didn't M'gann tell Wally that she's been seeing Conner? Was it a case of her enjoying the attention he was giving her, or was it because she simply couldn't be bothered to set the record straight? (Either way, she was allowing him to make a fool of himself.)

"I think the main problem that these two have is that M'gann thinks its so obvious that Wally's not in the running that she hasn't bothered to tell him. She assumes he knows. But he's too dense to see the obvious. I'm not blaming her or him. It's just a disconnect . And disconnects are where drama, conflict and, yes, even comedy comes from."

Supermans other powers like heat vision and flight?

Greg responds...

1. Yes.

2. I don't know. English, I'd guess, just because he'd be VERY good at the others due to his G-Gnome education. But I don't actually think he's bad at English either.

3. He won't, but that's because of his human DNA.

Dear Mr Weisman,
Let me first say that I'm big Young Justice fan. I love the the character development seen in the show. I do have a few questions, though:
1. Will Laura Bailey or Troy Baker be voicing any character in the show?
2. Are Tula and Garth acquainted with Kaldur's mother (you know, seeing how close they were in Atlantis)?
3. I'm itching to ask if we get to see any Mathlete action from Robin/Dick in the show. But since that's probably a spoiler request, you can ignore the point. I just HAD to type it out.
4. Is Iris related to Wally's dad or his mother? Her maiden name name is West, which would mean she's Rudy's sister. However, she and Mary look so ridiculously alike that I had to ask this.
5. Wikipedia says that Logan Grove will be voicing Beast Boy in the show. Can you confirm or deny this?
To conclude, I'd like to thank you for the stellar voice cast you've put together for the show. Props to you, Brandon and Jamie Thomason!

Greg responds...

1. I'm afraid I'm unfamiliar with those names.

2. They've met.

3. Okay.

4. I don't see any particular resemblance between Mary and Iris. As you noted, Iris is Rudy's younger sister.

4. Well, he's voicing Garfield Logan. Beyond that, you can do the math.

Before I ask a question I just really wanted to say I really appreciate all the work you and all the other writers, voice actors, animators, etc. have been doing on the show Young Justice. I really loved W.I.T.C.H. when I was little, but by far young justice has been one of the best shows I've seen in years. My comic book knowledge is pretty limited, but I love this show and all the characters in it. Thank you for all the work you've done, the fans of your shows really appreciate it.
I was really sad when young justice went on break, but the new episode Misplaced did not disappoint despite the wait. I only have one question that I had not seen in the unanswered questions or archieves yet, but if I missed it I owe you a thousand apologies.
1. When Billy Batson first switched over to the adult dimension by becoming captain marvel, why did the plane disappear? It seemed slightly bizarre since all the other cars seemed to exist in both dimensions, so I was wondering if there was any specific reason for its disappearance?
Thank you for taking the time to answer all the questions on Ask Greg, and I cant wait to see young justice next week!

Greg responds...

1. The plane only disappeared from Billy/Cap's perspective. From the perspective of Adultworld, it didn't disappear; it was right where it always was, i.e. back in the hangar in Fawcett City.

Harlan Phoenix writes...

What were the creative reasons that lead you to choose to write "Misplaced" personally/

Greg responds...

Oh, a few things.

1. The complexity of it made it challenging for me - which is something I look for - but also would have made it difficult for a freelancer to take on and nail the vision I had in my head. So in a way it saved time to write it myself.

Plus there were a number of specific aspects that interested me, including:

2. The "death" of Zatara and its effect on Zatanna.

3. The advancement of the Wally/Artemis relationship.

4. The fact that the kids on Kidworld were actually handling the crisis better than the adults on Adultworld.

5. The advancement of Billy's storyline.

6. The visual of Batman talking to Aqualad 'directly' despite the fact that the audience knows that Billy/Cap is being used as a go between. I like that arty stuff.

7. The mix of humor, action and tragedy is always fun to write.

8. The fact that Baa Baa Black Sheep, Twinkle Twinkle and ABC have the same tune.

9. I'm fascinated with mob mentalities and demagogs. So, for example, if you've read or seen Castaway's speech to the Quarrymen recruits in "Nightwatch/The Journey" you'll recognize a similar technique in Crusher's rants at STAR LABS here.

10. The timeline: telling a story. Starting over and telling it again from another perspective and then merging it.

11. The dual world idea.

12. And ultimately, not just because it was a classic Young Justice story to adapt, but because it's SUCH a perfect story for a show about teen heroes, I couldn't resist.

There's probably more, but a dozen reasons will do for now.

Dear Greg,
Congrats on the return of Young Justice! And damn, what a return! First off, thank you for adapting the first story of the original YJ! And it was damn good! Thank you, thank you. Now for other things I liked about it, I loved the design on the Riddler, very classy. Also, appearances by Blackbriar, Faust, Wizard, all cool. And Zatara, holy crap that was awesome! Now onto a few random questions;
1-One thing I enjoyed about the original World Without Grown-Ups was the teen ehroes dealing with kids who went crazy. Had you more time in the episode, would you have shown some clips of kids doing stupid stuff?
2-How did you guys approach the deisgn for Riddler? Cause again it was an awesome deisgn.

Greg responds...

1. We did, actually. There's a scene that we even animated where two tweens are joyriding in a speedboat and nearly get themselves killed, but Aqualad saves their bacon. (It's part of the sequence where Superboy saves the toddler from a crashed car and Miss Martian scares off the taggers. But it got cut for time.

2. I give full credit to Phil and Brandon on this. My main role was to walk in and fawn over it after it was done.

The split worlds was a nice idea but I was wondering just how did it work when they re-merged?

For example if a car was destroyed in one world and not in the other what would happen to the car when the worlds were merged again?

Had one of the adults worn the Helmet of Fate during the battle with the Sorcerors what would've happened after the worlds re-merged? Would there have been two Dr. Fate's or would one of the host's been chosen at random to keep the helmet suddenly?

We've just seen "Misplaced", and it was absolutely fantastic. I'll admit, I was worried about the "no adults theme", but I think it was a very original take on what some might call an overused trope. It was brilliant, original, and exciting, so kudos to you!

Another thing, congratulations on answering all your Ask Greg questions prior to March 3rd, and good luck with all the rest! Also, congratulations on Young Justice: Legacy! It's great to see Young Justice's success, you and the rest of the cast and crew definitely deserve it! It's a fantastic show.

On to a couple of questions;

1) The credits at the end of the episode appear to be incorrect, and are that of a future one. Would you be able to post the proper credits? I'd love to see who voiced Gordon, as well as Billy Batson.

2) The opening titles have been replaced with a single titlecard reading "Young Justice". Was this a decision made purely by yourself/crew, or did the change come around as a result of the DC Nation programming block?

Thanks very much for creating such a fantastic show, and I hope Cartoon Network has the sense to continue asking you for new seasons, because Young Justice - very honestly - is the best animated television series Cartoon Network has ever had. In fact, it's the only reason I watch CN! Thanks again. :)

I have questions about Atlanteans.

1) Do Atlanteans eat their seafood raw? I don't see fires being lit underwater unless they have a special way of cooking food underwater.

2) Do all Atlanteans have a set of gills and a pair of lungs to breathe underwater and above the surface?

3) How was Kaldur's first experience breathing surface air? Did he choke/gasp or did he transition smoothly?

Greg responds...

1. I would think for the most part, raw. But they have means of cooking should they want to. (Hot spring type things.)

2. Most do.

3. I'm sure it was a shock to the system, at least a little.

Greg ive liked yourself since I was a kid Gargoyles, as a teen Spectacular Spider Man and now with Young Justice. I know you did a lot of stuff in between but those really stick out to me.

Anyway on to the questions and I'm trying to be careful to avoid any spoilers.

1. Youve said before that you have access to every DC character, does this also include Wildstorm characters?
2. Like on land would it be correct to assume that are different kinds of ethnic groups that occupy the population of Atlantis specifically the group that looks most human?
3. What did most Atlanteans evolve from or is magic involved?
4. Icon and Rocket operate on a global scale or are they mostly stick to the US and Dakota?
5. What is the Guardians of the Universe policy for how many GLs are needed for each sector?
6. Between the time of the JSA and the start of the JL were there any other active public superhero groups?
7. On the team right now who is the best hand to hand fighter?
8. Since Kaldur left before he could graduate magic school does that mean that since Zatanna joined the team she is the better magic user?
9. Speaking of Kaldur since he is Aquaman's lad does that mean that if Aquaman retires than Aqualad will become the new Aquaman, but not the new King of Atlantis?
10. What does being Aquaman mean anyway or how much overlap and what are the differences between being king of Atlantis and being Aquaman?
11. Do Bruce Wayne and Lex Luthor operate in the same social circles?
12. In this continuity does Luciuos Fox know Batman's secret id?
13. Does Wonder Woman have a secret id?
14. Would it be safe to assume that other than Conner Kent no other hero has used the name Superboy?
15. Artemis grandparents were they good people or were they similar to her parents?
16. Back when the team was in Biyala the Light mentioned they had a new partner does this mean their new partner was joining the group of seven or did it mean they have a new business associate

Greg responds...

Okay, again. TOO MANY QUESTIONS ON ONE POST.

TO THE MODERATORS: Feel free to delete any post that has more than five questions, give or take. I don't want to be anal about this. If a sixth question really is just an extension of question five, than we can be lenient. But the opposite is also true. If folks are cheating by asking a question 1 and then 1a and then 1b and then Ic, etc. so that it only APPEARS that they've asked five questions or fewer than delete.

I hate to do this, but I'm running out of options. As long as people continue to disregard the posted rules and guidelines, the queue will never shrink. And I feel like every time I sort of shrug and let it slide, I'm only making the situation worse. So I'm going to have to be tougher and make the moderators be tougher as well.

Now there are a bunch of really good questions up there, J-GL/Dattaboy, so I hope you repost them again - in three or more posts of REASONABLE LENGTH.

I wish some fans would stop dissing Talia and Catwoman...they are strong independent complex women and Batman is not cup of tea either. He has a history of jerkish behavior and commitment and intimacy issues. In your series he seems more approachable and kinder and I think that makes him even better for anti-heroines like Talia and Selina. And it's not like he has lacked for many so called "good" women. Some of those other women thrown at him are not even workable and therefore that is why we always go back to Talia and Selina. Yeah, I'm rambling but I think Talia and or Selina fit in Batman's world and the fact they have painful pasts make them more able to share and even understand Bruce's painful past. And in any case...it's your show/verse to explore. And I like it. Um, would be nice to see the awesome Damien Wayne debut on YJ.:)

Greg responds...

Well, I'm particularly fond of the Selina Kyle that I grew up with - which may or may not match up with more recent interpretations. Talia interests me too. We'll (eventually) be seeing more of her in the comics. (Beware the "Serpent", I always say.)

Hey Mr. Greg Weisman,

It's me again. I know it's only been a couple of hours since my last posting, but I just watch "Misplaced," and I got to say what was done to Zatara, and forcing him become Doctor Fate, was very cruel. Who would have thought that the Helmet of Nabu was such a selfish entity, to take Zatanna's father away from her. So, now that Zatara is Doctor Fate, does that mean we'll never see him (as Zatara) again? I hope that, somehow, Zatanna will get her father back. Also, do you think the fallout of this Doctor Fate situation will somehow develop into its own story arc within the show? I have a strange feeling that my second question is somehow going to be right.

Thanks for taking the time to read my post.

Hi Greg! First of all, congratulations on the Young Justice video game! Can't wait for its release! I've just got one question, which I've been wondering about for a while:
1. When you use cultural references in the show (like Wally's Planet of the Apes reference in Alpha Male, or his 'Dumbledore' line in Denial) do you have to ask permission to include them in the script, or do you guys have pretty much free access to all Warner Brothers material?

Great job on the show! Its easily my favourite TV show right now- there's clearly a lot of talent and effort that goes into it, and it really pays off! Keeping my fingers crossed for a season 3!

Greg responds...

1. It depends on HOW we use it. A mention like that is what's known as "de minimus". That's a legal term which basically means it's of little significance. And that's okay. Parody is also okay, though the definition of parody can be tricky. Obviously, a bigger use like our Marvin the Martian visual would have taken permission if not for the fact, that, yes, Young Justice and the Looney Toons characters are all part of the larger WB family.

Hi Greg, I'm a big fan of your work, especially Young Justice and Spectacular Spider-Man. So what is your opinion on the Young Justice Wiki?

I haven't really had time to explore it much, though I've visited. My only real experience with wikis (other than wikipedia itself) is the Gargoyles Wiki. And the technology seems different on the YJ wiki, so I'm not as adept at navigating it.

Having given all those caveats, however, it seems great! There's a lot of incomplete articles - even in terms of what's already aired and/or been published in the comics - but I assume fans will fill that stuff in as time allows.

Since Starro's leg was moved in the adult dimension but not the kid dimension, yet The Light still had it when the worlds merged back together, then does that mean the adult dimension was the "real" world while the kids were sent to a pocket dimension, rather then things just being split? So the airplane is still uncrashed?

Greg responds...

No. It means that whatever was ACTED upon takes precedent over what was not acted upon. So the Helmet of Fate stayed in Roanoke. The piece of the creature stayed with Riddler. And Amber's plane crashed.

YJ question:

Let's assume for the sake of argument that the mole, whoever he/she might be, knows he/she is the mole. Why doesn't M'gann read everybody's mind and find the mole? And for that matter, why doesn't J'onn do that?

Greg responds...

We've tried to establish - in this Universe-16 - that telepathy isn't as foolproof as all that. That (a) you can't invade someone's mind without leaving a trace or being detected and (b) it's not hard for anyone trained to foil an attempt at mind reading. Even Bane, who in our universe is still relatively new at facing super-powered opponents was able to thwart Miss Martian.

All this, of course, is moot, however, since the RECENTLY REVEALED MOLE, Red Arrow, had no idea he was the mole.

YJ UPDATE

It's been a bit of a while, so I thought I'd post a production update on Young Justice:

SEASON ONE
101-125 have all aired.
126 airs this coming Saturday and Sunday on Cartoon Network. (Check local listings and cable guides.) It's our big finale. You REALLY don't want to miss it.

SEASON TWO
201-206 are all in the can, and currently scheduled to begin airing one week after our Season One Finale. (Which makes me happy.)
207 - We previewed the music score today and we're mixing it on Thursday. If all goes well, it should be in the can by Tuesday at the latest.
208 - We spotted the music today. And should be in the can one week after 207.
209 comes back from overseas tomorrow for retakes and editing.
210-211 should arrive on the heals of 209. We still need to pick up one actor (who was unavailable at the time of the original recording) for these two shows in ADR, but that'll take about an hour or two for both episodes. It won't cause any delays.
212-216 are all overseas being animated.
217 ships today.
218 is in storyboard revision.
219 is waiting for Brandon and I to give notes on the storyboard.
220 - The board is being cleaned up now for notes.

COMIC BOOK
Issues 0-14 have all hit the stands and are available at stores or on-line.
Issue 15 concludes our Atlantis two-parter hits the stands this week.
Issue 16 is at the printers.
Issue 17 is being pencilled.
Issue 18 is scripted and waiting its turn.
Issue 19 is plotted and is being scripted now.
Issues 20-22 have been pretty much locked down story-wise, i.e. I know exactly what stories we're telling in these issues.
Issues 23 and Beyond - I've already got a fairly clear idea of where we're going and what stories we're going to tell. Not locked in, but I'm pretty clear.

Mr. Weisman, my question pertains to Talia al Ghul. Namely, that fact that, while I can ascertain that she's intended (not just in Earth-16, but generally) to be a sympathetic villain, I have never been able to muster up any sympathy for her whatsoever. I mean, I'm a fan of, and greatly respect, the work of Neal Adams and Dennis O'Neil, but, where Talia's concerned, they weren't trying very hard. In her original appearances, she doesn't have much of a personality to speak of, she's just a clich-ridden knock-off of similar characters like Fah Lo Suee (i.e., the exotically beautiful daughter of the "Yellow Peril/Fu Manchu" mastermind who's loyal to her father, but feels torn by her attraction to her father's nemesis). I never got why she was in love with Batman. She'd met him once, she can't've possibly known him very well. Plus, from Batman's point of view, here's this woman he barely knows. Her clearly mentally unbalanced Father shows up, offers her to him, and she's calling him "Beloved" and trying to get him to marry her. Most men would flee from that, as if pursued by hounds. Sure she's beautiful, but this is a comic book universe. Gorgeous women are the rule, it's not even exceptional. She seemed more like a crazy stalker than a geniune suitor. Why would he have feelings for her? I actually prefer her in more recent comics, were she's been more like her Father, a villain (or, at leat, a well-intentioned extremist). At least she has a personality that way.
On Earth-16, when we first meet her, she's actively helping her Father in his efforts to murder billions of people. This kind of limits the sympathy I can feel for her. The fact that she claims to have misgivings means exactly nothing. Her misgivings aren't going to make any of the people she kills any less dead. She doesn't shoot Batman because of her attraction to him, not because she realizes that what she's doing is wrong. Then she gets into a huff because her Father and Batman's lives don't revolve around her and I'm forced to agree with Alfred: she's a crazy stalker with Daddy issues and an international terrorist. Who cares what she thinks? Then we find out about what she did to Matt Hagen. Batman sensibly tells her they can't be together while she's trying to murder billions of people, and she acts like the victim. Like her Father and his insane "compromise," she thinks he's being unreasonable. She gets a new boy toy, one whom she believes is beneath her, because he seems to fit into the immature fantasy she has about the love life she thinks she needs, then effects what she believes to be a slow,lingering death when she becomes convinced that he was just using her to get access to the Lazarus Pit in order to cure his terminal cancer. She comes across as immature and more in love with the idea of being in love than actually being in love with someone.
As I said, I've never really grasped why Talia was supposed to be sympathetic. At best, I see her as more of a tragic character (although I guess I may be splitting hairs). It's kind of like Demona, she's a tragic character, but much of that tragedy has been driven by her own actions, and it does nothing to change the fact that she must be opposed when her actions threaten lives.
In a larger sense, I've never understood why some fans get all bent out of shape whenever anyone comes up with the idea of exploring the idea that Batman could be paired up with a woman who isn't either terrorist stalker or a selfish, amoral thief. Someone with whom he could actually have a relationship with. Someone who isn't obviously wrong for him. Why are we locked down to Catwoman or Talia, when it couldn't be more obvious that it can't work out? I'm sorry if I'm rambling, but I just don't get it.
Thank you for your time.

Greg responds...

Well, we do ramble here. So you came to the right place, I suppose.

I don't necessarily disagree with you - though I believe I'd nuance my interpretation a bit more. Talia has sympathetic moments - as does Demona, I suppose - but that doesn't make either character sympathetic. And I certainly wasn't looking to make Talia sympathetic here in any overall sense. "Tragic" works too, to a degree. But even that's not the word I'd chose.

But also keep in mind, that you don't know HOW Talia and Batman met on Earth-16 or how their relationship might have developed. You only know how it ENDED. (Let alone what relationship, if any, Batman might have with Selina Kyle.) I also think it's part of who Batman is that he's ATTRACTED to darkness and the hope of redemption, but that he's too rational to allow that attraction to win him over for more than a moment. (Defining "moment" loosely.)

Hello Mr Weisman,

In the recent Young Justice episode Misplaced I was just curious as to why Red Tornado was not in both universes/worlds/realms. Since he is not a flesh and blood person like all the other heroes. And all the other objects and appliances seemed to be unaffected by Klarion's spell and inhabit both realms, for example Dr. Fate's helmet. So I guess my question is, why was Red Tornado in the world with all the people over 18 years of age and not in the universe with the individuals under the age of 18?

Greg responds...

Perception.

Hi Greg, first off I want to say thanks to you and the talented team you work with for making YJ such a good show.

I have a couple questions pertaining to Robin that I hope you can answer.
1. As the show progresses and the characters get older, being the youngest on the team, can we expect Robin to go through any noticeable height changes or for his voice to get deeper? I would imagine he's getting hit by puberty a little bit harder than the others right now.
2. In the comics, Dick is known as something of a playboy with the ladies, or at very least a pretty boy. Will the YJ version have anything in common with the comics in that regard as the show goes on?

Thanks for taking the time to read and hopefully answer these.

Greg responds...

1. Guess that would depend on how long we're on the air, wouldn't you think? RIght now, we've only covered less than six months of his life.

2. SPOILER REQUEST. NO COMMENT.

I don't mind Superman avoiding Superboy and get why he feels violated. It's great seeing Superman face something his strength and charm can't deal with. The way it has been shown has resulted in Superman coming across as unfeeling though. Even more so when other members of the League have accepted the boy. If being one sided was to generate debate, then you got what you desired. It has caused a lot of debate and Superman sure gets a lot of heat for it. We get to see Batman's perspective on stuff, might have helped see one little scene with Superman even expressing to someone he feels close to and has to keep no secrets from (I am guessing Wonder Woman or Martian Manhunter would fit that role best)why he can't offer the boy what he needs. Unless there is something else going on ...I get it but wondering if the payoff would be worth it? ie It has dragged on so long it would lose the emotional resonance? The long breaks has not helped, I guess. But many people who are rooting for Superboy want to see that resolved and in a way I almost feel like if I were Conner when Superman comes I would feel so angry I would not want to listen to what he has to say. Does that make sense?

Where has Wonder Woman been in all this? Is she an Ambassador or does she have the secret ID?

Greg responds...

1. If it makes sense to you, who am I to disagree. Otherwise, all I can say is wait and see. This will OBVIOUSLY be addressed in both the television series and the comic book.

2. In all what?

2a. SPOILER REQUEST. NO COMMENT.

Barbara Gordon aka "Babs" questions ( The last question is NOT a YJ question because I want to joke around.)

1. In YJ how long has Barbara lived in Gotham City or was she born in Gotham?

2. In YJ for the record, was Barbara born with blue eyes or was she wearing blue contact lenses and that she was born with green eyes?

3. In YJ, when did Barbara start wearing earrings?

4. Would you say that Barbara Gordon is "the Kim Possible of DC Comics"?, even though Christy Carlson Romano has never voiced her. I'm going to be very very honest with you Greg, if it wasn't for "KP", "Babs" here would never have been one of my most favourite DC heroines in the first place!

Greg responds...

1. Born there.

2. I don't know.

3. I don't know.

4. Uh... I have no response to this.

Hi Greg

I've been looking forward to new episodes for months and loved Misplaced this morning. It's amazing how you make some episodes feel like mini-movies. Fitting both a compact story AND characterization for so many characters on screen is no easy task, but you guys pull it off wonderfully.

I wanted to ask you if were able to fill in the blanks for some characters who did not have credited voice actors?

1x09 - Bereft
- Scientist #1 (moustache and glasses)
- Scientist #2 (beard and glasses)

1x11 - Terrors
- Belle Reve Guard Hart
- Belle Reve Guard Cooper

1x13 - Alpha Male
- Hunter (who hunts with Mayor Hill)

1x17 - Disorder
- Norman
- Norman's Mother

1x18 - Secrets
- Museum Curator

1x19
- Commissioner Gordon (I think it was him who spoke to the adult crowd)
- Amber
These might be too minor to have a credited actor
- Girl on street who lost her mom who was sitting on the stairs
- Man in car who lost his son
- Man who yelled at man above
- Kid who said Artemis sang the wrong song

Thanks again for your help on these and for such an awesome show. Not since Avatar The Last Airbender have I looked forward to a new episode in a series as much as I do for YJ. I also hope the quality in animation never changes. To me, the overall quality (esp. character shadings) was better than the recent Justice League Doom, which used the same designs by Phil Bourassa.

Greg responds...

According to my my notes - which were accurate per the day of the recording, but may not reflect with perfect accuracy the final product - here's what I've got:

109
Scientist #1 - Nolan North
Scientist #2 - Marina Sirtis (Looks like we changed this to a guy.)

111
Guards in the script were NOT identified by name.
Prison Guard #1 was James Remar. (I think his lines got divided up among a number of different guards.)
Prison Matron #1 was Masasa Moyo.

113
Hunter #1 - Nolan North.
Hunter #2 - Bruce Greenwood

117
Thug #1 (Norman) - Nolan North.
Old Woman (Norman's Mother) - Grey Delisle.

118
Museum Curator - Crispin Freeman.

119
Okay, clearly here, you were just impatient and not prepared to wait to see who played Gordon and Amber. Both names appeared in the credits, which were eventually reposted here. So I'm not going to reward your impatience by reposting those answers here.
Kid #1 - Dee Bradley Baker
Kid #2 - Lacey Chabert
Mother - Masasa Moyo
Father - Khary Payton
Driver - Kevin Michael Richardson
The children in the gym aren't identified separately in my notes.

Mr. Weisman, in reading some of your answers here, I've gathered that, on Earth-16, Martians call their planet "M'arzz." However, I've long since understood it to be that the Martians call it "Ma'aleca'andra," in an obvious homage to the classic sci-fi novel Out of the Silent Planet by Clive Staples Lewis, were they called it Malacandra (http://www.martianmanhunter.wikia.com/wiki/Ma'aleca'andra). Did you go your own way deliberately, or were you unaware that this had been established (I'll admit that I don't know when).

Greg responds...

I was unaware. Maybe M'arzz is short for Ma'aleca'andra, or it's an alternate name, or one is more current: like Earth = Gaea = Terra.

(All things are true. Few things are accurate.)

Hello, Mr. Greg Weisman,

I am a big fan of Young Justice and I have watched every episode up to the date of this posting. I have enjoyed each episode and I look forward to the rest of them. This is my first time asking questions to you. I deeply apologize if any of my questions accidentally break your guidelines. Please understand that it is not my intention to upset you if that ends up to be the case, because I believe you are a reasonable person.

It is only fair that I tell you that I may ask questions on this posting (and possibly others in the future) about topics/events that have occurred prior to the events of Season One. If I do ask such questions, they would be based on my personal assumptions:

a. I am assuming that Young Justice MAY continue BEYOND Season Two. I'm praying (every night!) that Cartoon Network will allow the renewal for more seasons.
b. I am assuming that information regarding events that took place prior to the show might NOT ever be revealed/discussed within the Earth-16 continuity (on the show or in the comics). This is because you've made it clear that the teenage superheroes are the main focus, and not their mentors.
c. I am assuming that you are probably more comfortable about answering questions about past and present events rather than future events because asking what will happen in the future instantly result in a spoiler request or no comment, and like I said, you'd probably get extremely upset. Also because this is the past we're talking about, I'm guessing anything is bound to have happened.

My questions are listed below. Starting with this posting, and in future postings, the maximum number of questions I'll probably give you is five. Hopefully, it will make things easier for you.

1. I've read one of your responses to a posting which states that the founding members of the Justice League did meet individually prior to 2003, the year in which they all came together. So, since you've proven that this fact is true, is it possible you can tell specifically which members met, when (Month/Day/Year)it happened, and what was the circumstances involved that caused them to meet? Given there are only seven founding members, I personally doubt there were many individual encounters prior to the big team-up.

2. Aside from the fact that the Justice League came together to fight a common foe in 2003 and the fact that Joker discovered the original secret sanctuary of the Justice League in 2006, is there any other major events that took place before the series that we, the fans of the show, need to be aware of? After all, a lot most likely happened in the span of just seven years before the events of the Season One, agreed?

3. You've confirmed that Green Arrow had lost his fortune under unknown circumstances. So, since this is obviously a serious issue for Oliver, what happened to his company, Queen Industries, as a result? Also, has he been spending any time fighting to try getting his fortune back?

4. Your responses to other people's postings confirm that Wonder Woman is 85 years old, Vandal Savage is around 50,000 years old, and Ra's al Ghul is around 600-700 years old. I pretty much understand what the circumstances behind why their ages are as they were described to be, but it does bring up an interesting question: If you could identify the ages of these three characters based ONLY by their physical appearances, how old would they be? For example, would Wonder Woman's physical appearance make her appear as though she was a woman in her late 20s or early 30s? I hope to hear your response to this particular question because I'm quite interested.

5. You are probably most likely aware there are a number of different interpretations of how Krypton was destroyed. I myself know at least three of them: the one in the movies, the one in Superman: The Animated Series, and the one in CW's Smallville. Out of sheer curiosity, what is your team's interpretation of Krypton's destruction in the Earth-16 universe (assuming it's an original interpretation and not one that draws inspiration from other interpretations of the Superman mythology)? I am interested to know as to what exactly happened, please understand that.

Thank you for taking the time to read my first set of questions. I apologize if my first posting seems longer that it should be. If for any reason I have UNINTENTIONALLY broken you guidelines, I am TRULY sorry, and you have my word that I will try to be more careful in the future. Anyway, keep up the good work! I will keep praying to God that, somehow, Cartoon Network will allow the renewal of more seasons for the show.

Greg responds...

1. I haven't tracked this with the kind of specificity you're asking for.

2. I'm sure a lot happened. If it's major, it's a SPOILER REQUEST. If it's not, I haven't tracked it.

3. I'm not confirming or denying the name of his company or what happened to it. I will say - again - that Ollie has decided that he's legitimately happier without his fortune. Whether he's kidding himself is another story.

4. I'm not sure why you can't observe this on the show and decide for yourself.

5. I'm not familiar with Smallville's version, and it's been SO long since I saw the animated version, I don't pretend to remember that one clearly either. I'd certainly borrow elements from the Superman movie, but I'm an old school guy, and would probably be heavily influenced by the pre-Crisis on Infinite Earths comics I read as a kid.

Must See Episode of Young Justice

So, I know I'm biased, but this Saturday's penultimate episode of YOUNG JUSTICE's first season really is a MUST SEE for the series: "Usual Suspects" brings all sorts of plotlines to a head, with large measures of action, humor and even romance. If you like the show at all, you'll want to see this one. (And if you haven't seen it in English, you'll want to watch it in its native tongue.) As per usual, it's airing as part of DC NATION on Cartoon Network on Saturday with a rerun Sunday. Check local listings.

I have a Young Justice question:
It seems like everyone got a centric episode except Robin. Kaldur got 'Downtime', Wally got 'Denial', Artemis got 'Homefront' and Conner and M'gann got 'Terrors', 'Disordered', 'Welcome to Happy Harbor'. Robin might have featured more in 'Homefront' and a few others, but none of them are Robin-centric. Is this intentional? Was it done for creative reasons? Is it because everyone knows Dick/Robin from previous shows?

"Off-screen for the most part.

Probably with the kids. Though Wolf is borderline."

During the episode "Misplaced" Klarion casts a spell on Zatanna. Is it a spell that you can understand if you don't say it backwards? If so could you tell me what he said?
