I was wondering, do you know of a way I could contact Victor Cook? I know you worked with him on Spectacular Spidey, and I wanted to ask him a question concerning his latest work, Scooby-Doo Mystery Incorporated ( which is a show I highly reccomend should you have time). If you can help, I'd appreciate it.
Well, obviously I know how to contact Vic, but I'm not entirely sure how to put you in touch with him. I also don't want to set a precedent and/or start making a habit of becoming a clearing house for fans to go through me to ask questions of other professionals.
So I think your best bet is to contact him via Warner Bros, where he's working on Mystery Inc.
From here on out, could you post on your Rambles the scripts for foreign languages dialogs and incantations? I would ask every time an episode with such airs, but with the amount of questions slowing down the queue, it would take weeks until we get the scripts after I request them.
Thanks in advance.
That makes sense... but, no. I just don't have time. I allocate a bit of time to answer a few questions on the days I have time. And I make sure to do the credits, but I can't keep track of the rest. Sorry.
I just finished watching Revelation and I gotta say, YJ is outdoing itself with each new episode. I especially loved your take on the Joker. Very Clockwork Orange. All those cameos were terrific as well, and as a big Plastic Man fan, I was psyched to see that he's bouncing around on Earth-16.
1. I gather that you tend to create pretty detailed plans and backstories for your characters. I was just wondering how much you think about one-scene-only guys like Plas and Blue Devil? Do you have their histories mapped out, even superficially? Or is it just a matter of "Icon and Rocket are awesome, let's throw them in!"
2. Would you ever consider posting or publishing the timeline you've created for the show?
Thanks for your time!
1. I have their histories broadly scoped out, without a lot of detail.
2. I'd consider it.
Hey Greg big fan of SpecSpider Man and YJ, you and Brandon are doing a great job!
Anywho the questions
1.What are the birthdates of the Young Justice 6 + Red Arrow?
2.How long have Iris and Barry been married?
3.How long has Mercy been Lex's bodyguard?
4. How did you determine the personalities of each of the characters?(It be cool if you really went in depth with this)
5.Who was a Green Lantern first Guy or John?
6. What is Wally's best field in Science?
7.Are Wally's powers really hard to control or master?
8.Besides being an Acrobat, did Robin learn anything else in the Circus?
9.How long have Rocket and Icon been heroes?
10.Who is the hardest character to write on the show?
11.What subject do each of the kids excel at?
12. Is Robin the most famous sidekick?(being first and all)
13. How come Black Adam, Atomic Skull, and Ultra-Huminite didn't say anything in the episode 14?
Some weird stuff!
1. Fans on the Internet found out that on August 16 "Targets" would air on September 16,some more number 16 weird, eh.
2. In episode 109 Robin noticed it was September and asked "what happen to March." This episode aired in March and we didn't see the next on until September
Thanks for answering my questions and hope you have fun working on the show!
1. I haven't nailed all of them down specifically. Mostly, I just know what years they were born.
2. I haven't nailed that down specifically.
4. Generally, we look at the source material and try to hone down to the most basic core element of his or her personality. Then we build back up/extrapolate from here.
6. Biology, but he's good at chemistry, physics, etc. too.
7. You try it.
9. Since May.
10. No one character is hard to write. What's hard is HOW MANY there are to juggle. (Director Tim Divar just said: "Sphere." But he may have been joking.)
11. Conner - History. Megan - English. Wally - Biology. Dick - Math. Artemis - Spanish. Kaldur - Combat Sorcery.
13. The honest truth is we couldn't AFFORD to have everyone speak. (Actors, strangely, expect payment when they do voices. Who knew?)
Revelation is one of the best episodes so far. Nice to see all of those cameos, and the development of the villains' plans kicking into high gear.
A few questions:
Do heroes outside of the League have their own special designations for getting into Mount Justice and the Satellite?
Captain Atom seemed to strain himself to take in all of that atomic energy. Can his shell be seriously damaged by absorbing too much energy at one time?
I like how Wally's collection of souvenirs is a smaller version of the JL Watchtower's Trophy Room. Can we expect the collection to continue to grow throughout the rest of this season and into the second?
Thanks again for an amazing episode. I haven't looked forward to an animated show like this since Spectacular Spider-Man. Keep up the good work!
1. No. Cuz they can't.
2. Captain Atom does NOT have a shell; he has armored skin. If he absorbs too much energy too quickly, it becomes fuel to thrust him forward in time.
3. There's no Trophy Room in the Watchtower. But, yes, Wally's collection will continue to grow.
First i just want to say that I love this show and as a robin fangirl i can't understand why people keep complaining about his creepy laugh or his butchering of the English language. I think its the funniest thing in the world and all of my friends who watch this show agree... but i have to say Robin has been missing in quite a few episodes and it seems like he has the least character developmental. there's been at least one episode centered around each character, even red arrow got his own episode and he's not even on the team!i was just wondering if you could tell us what episode robin's character will be delved into more, or at the very least will the team know his name by the end of season one?
I don't think his laugh is creepy, and I don't think he's butchering the English language. So I'm glad that stuff doesn't bother you, but I wish you wouldn't characterize it that way.
Robin had a focus episode already, and will continue to get more development as the series progresses. And his name was revealed in episode 112, which you should have seen even by the time you posted.
On the subject of young justice, I was watching the Bialya episode and i saw when the people said "The queen wants him alive," I noticed it was a him or i think it was a him. Any way i was wondering since they were only fighting robin did they just want Robin or did they want the whole team.
The second subject is still on young justice and my second question. Will Deathstroke or Slade appear in this series?
1. They'd take as many members of the Team alive as they could get without risking their other objectives.
2. ASKED AND ANSWERED NOW MULTIPLE TIMES WITH THE FOLLOWING: NO COMMENT.
About that response you made about Jonathan and Martha Kent not existing in Earth-16 and Jor-El and Lara coming with Superman and being found by the U.S. government, which situated them in Smallville in this post: http://www.s8.org/gargoyles/askgreg/search.php?qid=13173, were you actually serious or was that just a joke that you made up so that you could avoid answering Trevor Doyle's question? 'Cause for me and possibly for a lot of DC fans out there, Jonathan and Martha Kent not raising Superman is like Batman's parents never being murdered. They would have never assumed their respective identities if those two things never happened.
Note the date I posted that: it was an April Fool's Day joke, as I revealed just a few posts later.
Hey Greg! I don't have a specific question, but I did want to email and comment on episode 114: Revelation. In my opinion, it is easily the best Young Justice episode so far, and one of the best animated episodes of anything set in the DC universe. The action sequences were intense and I think you really showed villain teamwork the way it should be - not just the members of the team fighting together, but combining their strengths to make something even more powerful than they are; casting Brent Spiner as the Joker just sealed the deal that this version of the Secret Society / Injustice League was a force to be reckoned with. Thank you so much for making this show (I look forward to it every Friday and I hope it will keep running for years), and keep up the good work!
I first of all wanted to say how much I love YJ so far. I was sooooo excited to see the reveal of the other members of the light and was very content with them. I do have a question, though. Who are the current Justice League members (that you can tell us without it being a spoiler)? If there are any you want to keep secret, how many secret members are there? Thank you and keep making cool TV. :D
The entire Justice League was revealed in episode 102.
In alphabetical order they are:
so for the past four weeks i have been trying to figure out what year Robin was born. its really been bothering me :( i figured that robin could have turned 13 this year and posibly could of been moved up to grade 9 or theres a grade 8 in high school in america (sorry im canadian we dont have middle school here so i am all jumbled up when it comes to schools there) or Robins turning 14 in the next coming months (since its like october in the show) you help me out please? thanks :)
ASKED AND ANSWERED.
Hi Greg. I love Young Justice and the show is really getting better and better after the hiatus!
Alongside with "Homefront", "Revelations" was great! I love to see Joler and Ivy on the show^^
I got a lot of questions, I donÂ´t know wher to beggin!
I wanna know the reason of why to choose Alyssa Milano for Poison IvyÂ´s voice?
Will be more episodes focus on Artemis past and life? I really her :)
Will Icicle Jr. and Artemis even meet in the show?
Artemis and Icicle Jr. are married in the comics.....Will you use that for some sort of plot in the show? I really would like to see them imteract^^
Also I like Artemis and Wally together, will their relationship grow? And I mean as more than friend.
Do you think the mole will be revealed in season 1?
Im interested in the episode called "Coldhearted" Actually Im interested in all the episodes :) But if itÂ´s ot to much information....could you tell, who will be the main character in that?
Thats all for now^^
Congrats for the show Greg, itÂ´s really cool!!

Hey! I saw the Young Justice production updates and it got me thinking...
Season 2 is 'Young Justice: Invasion' and only 20 episodes. Does that mean that there won't be a season 3? Because I am in love with this show and I don't want to see it with such a short run.
PS: 'Homefront' was AMAZING! Favorite Episode :D
Too soon to say whether they'll be a third season, but the title and/or number of episodes for Season 2 has no baring on the decision on Season Three. Now the ratings and toy sales, on the other hand...
Just finished watching Revelation and I must say you guys really outdid yourselves with this one. Definitely my favorite episode so far. Intimidating bug name villain, Awesome cameos by JL members,cool moments for the entire JL team, and the revelation of The Light's identities! What more could a DC fan ask for?
Enough praise. On to my questions:
1. Now that the identities of the Light have been revealed can you say how long they've been a group relative to the JL?
2. Has Wally discussed his meeting Kent Nelson with Jay Garrick at all? I assume the two Golden Age heroes would have known one another personally or at the very least had knowledge of the others' presence in the super hero field.
1. NO COMMENT.
2. I'm sure he has.
I'm a big fan of your cartoon shows(Gargoyles,Spectacular Spiderman,and Young Justice)
My question is who voiced Wotan in Revelation
Hi Greg, 'Revelation' was brilliant! It was an epic.
I want to ask some questions of Young Justice.
1) In "Independence Day" Why did Wotan want to blot out the sun?
2) Is Blockbuster's mutation irreversible? Is Mammoth's mutation irreversible?
3) Why did T. O. Morrow want to reprogram Red Tornado?
4) Why is the Light (via Sportsmaster) procuring means to go "mano-a-mano" with the Justice League?
5) Why was Professor Ivo thought to be dead? Why did Professor Ivo create Amazo? Was Professor Ivo working alone or was he in cahoots with someone else?
6) Why is Paula Crock in a wheelchair?
7) In "Bereft" When Miss Martian restored Superboy's memories, why was there a glimpse of a White Martian?
8) Where did the Sphere come from?
9) In "Targets" Why does Cheshire and Sportsmaster seem to dislike each other?
10) In "Terrors" Is the Riddler as inept as regarded? How did the Riddler manage to escape? If only one convict escaped, then how were "the main objectives all reached"? What were the main objectives of the break out?
11) In "Homefront" Who created Red Torpedo and Red Inferno? What happened to Red Tornado when he touched Red Inferno? Is Red Tornado the mole?
12) In "Alpha Male" What happened to the Brain and Monsieur Mallah in the end? Why is Artemis so vehement that Aqualad cannot trust Sportsmaster?
13) Are Blue Devil, Guy Gardner, Plastic Man, Rocket and Icon members of the Justice League?
14) Where did Vandal Savage get his scar?
1. You're making an assumption here that I think the evidence belies.
2. Doesn't seem to be.
3. By now, you know.
4. Take a guess.
5. There seemed to be evidence supporting that assumption.

Besides Kim Possible have you worked with Christy Carlson Romano in any other cartoons? She's a great voice actress but very very underused. I hope you'll be able to work with her again.
I've never worked with Christy. Though I freelanced a couple of Kim scripts, I didn't attend the recordings.
After watching the recent episode of "Young Justice" - "Revelations", I was to be 6/7 correct about the members of the Light. I also glad that you chosed Vandal Savage to be "L-1", bout time he took command. I was just amaazed that you chose Klarion the Witch-boy to be a member.
What made you chose him instead of someone like Felix Faust?
Watch and see...
1. In Revelation, was that Icon??? If so, wow, what a treat.
Revelation was a blast. Guy Gardner made me laugh out loud. Thank you some more for this quality show.
1. ASKED AND ANSWERED.
I really enjoyed "Revelation." I'm curious about the show's take on the Joker. I can see the influence from Heath Ledger's portrayal, but I was wondering what else influenced the overall design and characterization of your version.
I think we were probably less influenced by Ledger's Joker than you might think - which is not to say it might not be in the mix somewhere and/or that I wasn't impressed with Ledger, because of course I was.
But we're all just retreating to common sources anyway.
Anyway, I can't speak to what influenced Phil and/or Brandon and/or Brent, but I mostly go back to old comics of my childhood for inspiration.
1.How did Robin and Aqualad find out M'gann and Conner are dating?
By paying attention.
Why did you let Steve Blum reprise his role as Count Vertigo from the Green Arrow DC Showcase onto YJ?
Why did I "let" him? What an odd way to put it.
I thought Steve was great; Brandon and Jamie agreed, so we cast him in the role again.
'Revelation' was brilliant!
1. Is the following list of names and aliases correct in Earth-16?
Captain Atom - Nathaniel Adam
Plastic Man - Patrick O'Brian
Blue Devil - Daniel Cassidy
Icon - Augustus Freeman
Rocket - Raquel Ervin
Hawkman - Carter Hall
Hawkwoman - Shayera Hol
The Joker - Jack Napier
Poison Ivy - Pamela Isley
Ocean Master - Orm Marius
Black Adam - Teth-Adam
Zatara - Giovanni "John" Zatara
Ultra-Humanite - Gerard Shrugel
2. What color are Wonder Woman's eyes?
1. Some are correct, some are not.
2. Wonder Woman's eyes are blue.
(What's with this sudden obsession with eye color?)
1. How old is Guy Gardner?
2. What color are Guy's eyes?
3. How old is Vandal Savage?
1. Guy is 33.
2. Guy has green eyes. (So does Joker, btw, though his are a more yellowy green.)
3. Vandal is over 50,000 years old.
Hi, I have to questions.
1-Will Dick get older on season 2? Given the case, how old?
2-If Starfire ever shows up (even as a cameo) how old would she be?
