So currently rewatching YJ Season One on Netflix. I'm up to "Secrets," and I can't help but wonder... do Martians consider "War of the Worlds" and similar alien-invasion movies and literature to be derogatory and/or racist? If the Martian population hasn't been sufficiently exposed to human culture at the point where the story left off to have an opinion, *would* they eventually take offense to said works? (I have to wonder if they'd wind up seeing Marvin the Martian -- the form Megan takes in this episode, presumably showing that Looney Tunes exist on Earth-16 -- as a sort of Chief Wahoo sort of figure...)
I think that when J'onn sent broadcasts to Mars, he would have definitely sent anything that depicted "Martians," (including what must have been a perplexing "Life on Mars"). Because, after all, wouldn't Martians be very curious about "Martians"?
Way back when he started, I'm sure he would have prefaced his transmissions by reminding his Martian audience that Earthlings have no idea that Martians actually exist. That this was fantasy, much like the way Martians tell stories of evil sentient ma'alefa'aks, knowing that they're really just animals (like the way we talk about the Great Apes in Tarzan).
Given that, I think the Martians would be able to regard the "Martians" of Earth as kitsch.
Of course, as time passes on Earth-16 and Mars-16 (and Martians become aware that Earthlings are aware of the truth and nature of Martian existence), if the depiction of "Martians" didn't change, then the Martians would begin to have issues with those depictions.
But specifically, "War of the Worlds" - having been written over a hundred years before Earthlings knew that Martians did in fact exist - would still fall into the category of quaint.
Also, keep in mind, given the fact that at least three alien races - the Appellaxians, the Kroloteans and the Reach -DID, in fact, attempt invasion, the Martians wouldn't be upset about fictional depictions of OTHER races being demonized. Only if the "demons" were labeled as "Martians".
Fun question, by the way.
It seems like Vandal Savage is the leader of the Light, but I would imagine Klarion is significantly more powerful. As a Lord of Chaos, why does Klarion even bother submitting to Savage's plan, rather than wrecking havoc on his own?
You don't think he's having fun?
In Spectacular Spider-Man, Dock Ock's power source or battery pack or whatever was called the Megalo Pack. What made you guys use that name. Was it something from the Comics?
I don't remember.
I think that when Lorisa214 asked, "1) What Roy Harper had to get a new SIN? - (Social Insurance Number. I'm not sure what it's called in the States. But everyone gets one and it identifies you & only you)" and you replied, "1. Which Roy are we talking about?" that that was her question: which Roy was it that had to get a new SIN? Or Social Security Number, here in the States.
Oh. Hm. Not sure. I'm sure clone Roy would have wanted to give his up. But he's the one with the adult life history that would make changing it difficult. So maybe Original Roy?
Did Jay Garrick when was in his prime did most of his solo crime fighting in Central City or Keystone City?
Are you sure there is a Keystone City?
1. Given that the Third Race apparently knows about King Arthur's burial on Avalon (the Weird Sisters asked "Where's the sleeping king?" during their battle with the Magus in "Avalon, Part 3"), what is the significance of Oberon's referring to Titania as his "Once and Future Queen" in "Ill Met By Moonlight?"
2. On this question http://www.s8.org/gargoyles/askgreg/search.php?qid=1414 Todd Jensen mentioned a little bit about Merlin's life according to legend, including his encounter with King Vortigern. An eighteenth-century forger named William Henry Ireland wrote a play about Vortigern's life that he falsely attributed to William Shakespeare, on the grounds that Vortigern's story was so tragic, Shakespeare ought to have written about it. Given that King Arthur appears to have a prominent role in the Gargoyles Universe, and given also your love of Shakespeare, I'm especially curious to learn what role Vortigern has in the Gargoyles Universe.
By the way, I'm even more eager to learn what Shakespeare's story is in the Gargoyles Universe, than what Titania whispered to Fox.
1. You're assuming Oberon knows the title of the book "Once and Future King"?
2. No Spoilers.

Rain of the Ghosts Typo contest entry.
Chapter One: Drums, Page 3.
Last sentence of the first full paragraph on the page.
"Then in perfect synch, the two teens turned down a dark alley, the bikes at at a forty-five-degree angle."
There shouldn't be a hyphen between forty-five and degrees.
I think that must be a judgement call. I'm not counting that as a mistake. Sorry.
When did Barry Allen first fought Vandal Savage?
Sometime previously. I haven't bothered to nail it down.
Question about Artemis' outfit:
i noticed in one earlier question how you said the writers wanted to make the costumes for the Teams outfits as realistic as they should be - thus why none if the girls had heels or anything. i was wondering why they chose to give artemis a cropped top, or was it just an aesthetic thing? its something ive noticed with a lot of other female superheros and i dont really get it; i would assume it would be colder and make that region slightly more vulnerable.
side note: i think its cool how the team behind young justice to make artemis half asian; its nice to seem more minority representation in superhero shoes, especially as a half asian myself :)
1. You'd have to ask Brandon Vietti and Phil Bourassa. Maybe in-universe it's a freedom of movement thing. But most likely it's an aesthetic choice. Artemis' and/or Brandon's and/or Phil's.
2. It's a priority for us, and for me particularly, to get more diversity in there.
Why can't you accept the public's ideas on their newly created superheroes?
Because I - or the company I work for - could get sued over it. I don't want to take that risk, and the companies I work for FORBID me from taking that risk. For more clarity, check out the introductory page of ASK GREG here:
(I mean it's clear you skipped over it and asked your question without bothering to read it. Because the answer was spelled out right there.)
For the love of all that is mighty please do a season 3 of Young Justice, my 3 year old son and I love that show.
Ciera, why in the world would you think that decision is at all up to me?
Believe me, if it were up to me, we would never have stopped making it. (After all, why would I want to put myself out of work?) If it were up to me, we'd be premiering season seven this month.
Unfortunately, I don't get to make those calls.
1. Was Ra's Al Ghul intially hostile to the idea of working with lex luthor?
2. How long has Belle Revee existed since season 2?
3. What happened to Amanda Waller after she was fired from Belle Revee?
1. No. Why?
2. Huh? It was built before Season One.
3. No Spoilers.
1. What are Black Spider's webs made out of?
2. In universe how did the webs come to be red?
3. In universe who created Black Spider's webs?
1. Snakes and snails and puppy dog tails.
2. Easter egg food coloring.
3. The Easter Spider.
Okay, sorry for the joke answers. But the truth is I don't know.
Who came up with Wally's death?
On Earth 16 are both of Katar Hol's parents Thanagarians?
Is it true that is we binje-watch Young justice that it may bring back a season 3 .
It's possible, yes.
In Young Justice: Invasion, why does the Team use the Greek alphabet (Alpha, Beta, Gamma, etc.) instead of the NATO alphabet (Alpha, Bravo, Charlie, etc.) for squad distribution?
Think about who the leader of the Team might have been when the system was installed.
Why is Shayera 11 years old younger than hakwman?
Im just curious behind the decision
"old younger"? I'm not sure what you're asking here.
Hi! I've finsihed YJ and it was so awesome! (Without that Wally died)
But how can I help to make a third season when Netflix don't have the episodes in my country?
Thanks again for the awesome series and #KeepBingingYJ !
I don't know for sure. You can always ask Netflix customer service in your country if they would start carrying it.
If the BluRays are available, purchase those. Or you could purchase the episodes individually on iTunes.
You can also purchase our companion Young Justice comic on iTunes or Comixology.
Earlier you had said the reason Batman told Nightwing and Robin (Tim Drake) to keep their identities a secret from the Team is so that a plausible deduction of his identity would not be made.
If that's the case, would the original members of the Team (plus Kid Flash/Bart Allen and Beast Boy) outside of the "Bat-Family"-16 be able to make a guess at Batman's identity if they haven't already since they know who Nightwing and Robin (Tim Drake) are?
Certain individuals have been let in on the identities of Dick Grayson and Bruce Wayne. No deductions necessary.
Hi again. As long as rules require to group questions by different topics, I've written that as separate questions.
1. If Puck is Oberon's servant, why can he be summoned by Titania's mirror? Not some Oberon's possessions, but Titania's.
2. Does the spell, that Demona used to summon Puck, have any translation? Was it in Latin? I failed to find it on Wiki.
3. Why didn't Oberon just use the mirror as Demona did in order to summon Puck? Was he just in a mood for stroll?
4. In the way I see it, there's kind of tension between Puck and the Weird Sisters, as they say they can hunt him down for Oberon. I mean -Hunt-. Not to bring him, not to call him, not to remind to him. Hunt him down. Why? If this IS a spoiler, please, just forget you've read 2d question. If I just dramatize, feel free to tell it in any form you like.
5. Would - if heard - the ringing of the iron bell be at least painful to ANY one of Oberon's children in their true form? If not to all, then to who will it be?
1. If the spell is powerful enough, he can be summoned by any magic mirror.
2. It's Latin and can be found here: http://gargwiki.net/Summoning_Spell
I don't have the translation here at my Nickelodeon office. But you can probably get it from one of the fans by asking in the S8 Comment Room.
3. Yes. He pretty much says that. (Are you asking these questions from memory without looking back at the episodes? Cuz, if so, you're really waiting a LONG time to get answers you could've gotten yourself.)
4. It's a spoiler.
5. To all.
Hello, Greg! I hope you're doing well.
1. So long after I've seen "The Mirror" episode for the first time, and I'm still deeply curious: what was Xanatos look like as a gargoyle? Preeeeeeetty interested. I know, that this is not the best question to be answered in writing, but if only briefly...
2. Episode "The Edge" starts with a sparring between Xanatos and Owen. And Owen gets the upper hand.
a) Why did Xanatos stopped the following sparring?
b) Was the purpose of sparrings with Owen in training him in hand-to-hand combat?
1. I'll leave this to your imagination.
2a. Didn't he have an appointment?
2b. No, it was to maintain his edge.
Hey Greg big fan of young justice. in season 1 wally cannot vibrate his molecules did he learn to do so by season 2.
No. It's not a question of learning. He's just not that fast.
I haven't received my cds on Rain of the Ghosts part of the Kickstarter project.
We are still gathering signatures. As I've noted through Kickstarter Updates, I'm VERY sorry that this is taking so long - especially since we got the bulk of the actors all in one night - but getting the last few signatures has proven very difficult. We're getting closer now. I hope to update Kickstarter again soon.
Can you please contact Buena Vista Home Entertainment and Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment to ask them to release Gargoyles on Blu Ray?
hi greg!! first i just wanna say, i love young justice and i really hope it can come back one day! i kind of cried when i heard about the netflix thing.
soo, a few questions?!
1. does dick still have romani heritage in earth sixteen canon? I apologize if that's already been asked.
2. how did arsenal stay fifteen (i believe) for eight years? was there some
kind of anti-aging technology in play when he was on ice?
3. i don't actually have a third question. wait, yes i do. is there a chance the yj original trio will make some sort of appearence, since they're all on the team now? that's a spoiler, though isn't it..
1. No Spoilers.
2. He was frozen.
3. I honestly don't know what you're asking here. But in any case, it would clearly be a spoiler.
The Earth revolves at around 1000 MPH
Why isn't it windy all the time?
You'd have to ask someone who knows, but I'd guess it's because our atmosphere is revolving WITH the Earth.
1. Did the guardians of universe knew of Alan Scott's power ring?
3. Did Alan Scott ever found out about the guardians of the universe?
4. When did the malfunctioning power ring landed on earth?
5. Did the guardians of the universe ever consider taking away Alan Scott's power ring?
1. No Spoilers.
2. There is no question 2.
4. No Spoilers.
5. No Spoilers. (By the way, this is the DEFINITION of an idea masquerading as a question. Please, EVERYONE, do not post ideas masquerading as questions. In the future, they will be deleted, along with any legit questions on the same post. I only let this one stand to make this point.)
Hi. A little while ago I requested a character oriented slant for a hypothetical third season of Young Justice. I want to rescind my request. As I sit here working on my YA novel, I realized that no writer can work that way. He/she can only tell the story she wants to tell and hope other people like it.
What is joker's real name and when did he became Red hood
1. I don't know. And in any case, NO SPOILERS.
2. You're assuming facts not in evidence. And in any case, NO SPOILERS.
1. In "Misplaced" was Icicle Jr. still seventeen or had he already become an adult?
2. What did Icicle Jr. do during the time that the adults and children were separated into two dimensions?
1. Is Icicle Jr. in Misplaced? But in any case, throughout season one, he's 16 or 17.
2. No spoilers.
Good afternoon. My name is Brian Josephs and I'm a reporter working for VICE. I hope this message finds you in good spirits.
I'm writing you because I'm working on an article examining the furry community. A historian told me that Gargoyles has been a point of interest, and the 2014 CONvergence convention honored the 20th anniversary of the show by featuring a panel.
Are you available briefly for a phone conversation tomorrow about the experience? If so, please shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks and hope to hear from you soon.
You posted this in March, so I'm assuming that I'm getting to it a bit too late to be of any use. And though I welcome fandom of any fur, I must admit I don't know much about the furry community. CONvergence, for example, is not a specifically furry con. Though I'm sure some furries attend.
If you're still interested in talking with me, shoot me a tweet at @Greg_Weisman, and we'll go from there.
Hello Mr Weissman,
So first of all I would like to congratulate you and thank you for Young Justice. Whilst I am saddened you weren't able to do more with the series, I think what you produced was a great run and a rich, fascinating world which I am sure we would all have loved to see more of. I'll try to avoid ranting against the Powers That Be here, and just say thanks for giving it to us.
Now I have some extremely dorky questions about the background;
1: How much do Kryptonians weigh? You've said their strength and toughness comes from their density, but the fact Superboy can be shot by a tank with no result but to make him angrier seems to suggest he ought to weigh several tons, which would have caused him a few problems. It's possible he's made of some supertough material, but he also pins down an enormous monster in season 2 just by lying on top of its arm, so it looks like it's just his weight that's holding it down, which again would indicate he's REALLY heavy and Flash is presumably tailing him and putting reinforced chairs down whenever he has to sit somewhere :)
2: What kind of working relationship does the League have with mortal law enforcement/intelligence agencies? Have they told Interpol, Europol, the CIA and so forth about the Light (even if they don't want to start accusing Lex Luthor because it might get them sued if they don't have enough proof)?
3: Atlantis isn't part of the UN as per 'Usual Suspects' and even in season 2 little enough is known about it by air-breathers that Godfrey can ask if they're actually aliens. What kind of contact DOES Atlantis have with the surface world besides Aquaman and his sidekicks?
4: Does the Justice League own the rights to its logos and does it get royalties from all the superhero logos people presumably put on t-shirts, lunchboxes and so on on Earth 16?
5: Batman describes Bialya as a 'rogue state', but it seems to have some pretty high end military hardware (predator drones which are far more manouvrable than the real ones) and, frankly, I'd question the decision to let Queen Bee on the Light's board of directors if she ran a pariah state. So what is Bialya's standing in the international community, and specifically its relationship with the USA?
1. I'd ask them, but it seems indelicate.
2. I'm sure they've got reciprocal intelligence sharing.
3. Little, at this point.
4. There's a lot of pirating, but yes.
5. It's standing varies from state to state. It's standing with the U.S. is not good.
If you were to play a Nintendo game or two, what would it be and why?
I don't know anything about Nintendo. Couldn't name a single game with confidence.
Recently you implied that if people binge Young Justice it could get revived. While I want that is it possible? A lot of the writers and animators have broken up and are doing other things ex. Kevin is a writer for Star Wars Rebels. I'm not trying to be a cynic its just a huge hurdle that no one seems to be discussing.
Not every single person who EVER worked on the series would be back, certainly, but we'd get the cast back. And Brandon Vietti, Phil Bourassa and myself have all made it clear we'd come back, and I believe we're the three individuals who are truly essential to the show beyond the cast. Kevin isn't on Rebels anymore, but he does have other work. I don't know whether we'd get him back specifically, though I would hope so. But I can guarantee you that the writing would still be top-notch.
To be clear, this is all theoretical. The show isn't back. We simply are hopeful and optimistic.
In your opinion, what are some of the key factors that separate a good story/script from a poor one (especially as it applies to writing in episodic television)?
Story that comes out of character.
Dialogue that sounds like something human beings would actually say.
Some amount of surprise.
And if we're literally talking about the script itself: PROOFREADING!
If you were offered to write a Transformers series, would you be willing to do so?
I have already. Wrote an episode of Transformers Prime and multiple episodes of Transformers Rescue-Bots.
In your opinion what makes Superman such a great character?
Truth, Justice and the American Way. (Though what I consider the American Way and what others consider the American Way may differ.)
Rewatching YJ on Netflix. In The Fix, Kaldur responds to Black Manta's presence after six hours of psychic therapy by M'gaan and Artemis. In Complications, it is revealed that Kaldur is fully healed and is only feigning his catatonia to maintain their cover. This is roughly fifty days (from April 9 to May 27). My question is this: at what point in that period is Kaldur actually healed fully? To put it another way, how long did the three have to keep up the pretense?
On one level or another, the whole time. If you're asking when his healing was "perfected," within that span, I don't know how to answer that. It's not like a switch was flipped. It's a process. He may not be 100% over it even now.
1: Have any of the Justice League gotten into a scuffle: As in the general hero meet and great of fighting with fists and blasts?
2: Do any of the Justice League have statues or museums in honor of them
3: Can Superboy vote?
4: Are the Justice League involved in politics (Do they endorse political candidates or take sides in issues like LGBT marriage or guns?)
1. If I'm understanding you right, then no.
2. Besides the Hall of Justice?
3. Which season are we talking about?
4. No spoilers.
Did Dick ever have romantic feelings for Artemis?
Hello, Greg. Hope you're doing well.
Dropping in with another question. I hope it doesn't go into spoiler territory, but I apologize in advance if it does. I searched the archive and did not see it (then again, the archive is so massive, I may have overlooked it and for that I also apologize in advance).
The question has been bugging me for a while and it's regarding Young Justice: Invasion, particularly the episode "Endgame":
Is Black Beetle (in his original form after his scarab is destroyed via Blue Beetle), that is, is his species from the planet Rimbor or Raan or somewhere else? (I mainly ask because I thought his design was awesome. Phil did a wonderful job!)
Wish you well and I appreciate you taking the time to acknowledge my question (:
He's from the Reach homeworld.
OK, first of all: love YJ and I really hope to see a season 3.
Second: who is your favorite character out of all the villains, heroes and civilians in YJ, like Cat Grant or Green Beetle?
Mine is Blue Beetle and Impulse, they just make the best friends (Kinda ship BluePulse. Definitley see something there other than friendship, but it just might be the fact that Impulse just cares for him in the way that's like 'oh, I don't want you to conquer the Earth, so I'm gonna take care of you' way).
I really like Blue for the fact that he tries so hard not to succumb to the scarab and become super freaking evil. Also, he helps with me get a teensy bit ahead in Spanish. I like Impulse for the fact that he's like me, impulsive (Pun intended), eats a lot of food, is funny, and just tries to keep his friends safe. Thank you so much for the show, it was basically my late childhood and early teenage antidote from school and stuff.
Really hoping for a season 3!
2. I don't have a single favorite.
Hello Mr. Weisman,
I'm very much a writer like yourself and am trying to break into the animation industry with a story of my own; its tone and maturity much like Young Justice, which I loved by the way (Go Robin!).
My questions are:
1.) How much should I have in my story's portfolio before I pitch my idea to various networks? I already have concept drawings, practice scripts, and I'm having an independent studio make three animated shorts, but what would you suggest?
2.) Who, generally, should I know or get to mentor me in breaking into the industry? I was trained as an Engineer before realizing my true passion for storytelling.
3.) Any other tips I may have missed?
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
1. Less is more. You already have way more product/content than I'd use to pitch an original idea. The thing you may be missing is experience. But you never know. Sometimes they go for it.
2. As many folks as possible. Networking is an important skill.
3. Proofread religiously.
Have you read Buffy the Vampire Slayer Seasons Eight, Nine and Ten?
I read Season Eight, in a very disjointed way. Meant to sit down and read it through with more coherence after the fact, but never got around to it. And haven't yet read - or purchased - seasons nine and ten.
Regarding Justice League designations 27 and 28, were these designations taken by 4th July Team Year Six, or were they only assigned after the end of season 2?
After. The only new designation assigned by July 4th was B-26 for Static.
Is Oberon capable of love? Does he love his wife and biological children? Did he marry Titania for shallow reasons (like her beauty, power, and status)? I get this feeling if his sons were to die, he would not care.
You'd be wrong.
He, of course, loves Titania and his children.
I'm not even sure what you're basing your assumptions on.
Do you remember the Gargoyles board game that came with a VHS back in the 90s? In the beginning of the video, David Xanatos will taunt the players. One part I find humourous is when he laughs maniacally. It seems so out of character for him to do. Did that part bother you? We don't see Xanatos laugh in the show. In the video, he is laughing like a saturday morning cartoon villain.
I remember it fondly. I don't particularly remember that bothering me. (I know I was there for the recording.) I'd have to look at it again to be sure.
I've seen a running theme of father issues: Superboy & Superman (although they resolved that as brothers instead), Artemis & Sportscaster, Aqualad & Black Manta, a little bit of Zatanna & Zatara.
Was it accidental or intentional?
I dunno, honestly.
Many of these issues were built into the comics we were adapting.
Or some of it may come from my own fears as a father.
But there are mother issues too. Artemis & Paula. M'gann & Marie. Etc.
Why did u and brandon choose Wally's death as one of the best choices as a hole for the show....not to mention his relationship with Artemis was my favorite and Wally was also my favorite character. I know that you are not going to change it because it already is as it is...Wally and i connected...i just did not agree with seeing Wally's friends and especially Artemis go through all that pain...i suffered too, he ment a lot to me,.. I would just like to know why please..i feel like Wally was trying to do wright with his buetiful beloved Artemis.I liked the relationship by the way...you r amazing too...really great at what you do....but why did u and ur partner decide to do that.Not asking for your future plans..or Spoilers of course but WHY??...thank u for you time...#ilovewallyandartemis best ever.cant wait for SEASON 3
There are a lot of complicated reasons. But fundamentally, it comes down to this:
Because we knew it would hurt.
Hello, thank you for your time:
1. What does Icicle Sr's costume look like?
2. Is Killer Frost a scientist or a person in the wrong place and wrong time?
3. Who is Icicle Jr's mother?
1. We've never designed it, so I don't know.
2. No spoilers.
3. No spoilers.
How old was Thom Adcox-Hernandez when you asked him to do the voice of Lexington for Walt Disney's Gargoyles in 1994?
That would depend on how old he was in 1994.
1) Who originally designed the inhibitors collars? Star labs? Wayne Industry? Lex corp?
2)Are the collars used in other prisons aside from Belle Reve, like say Arkham?
3 What year were they first invented?
4) Is there a limit to how many powers the collars can inhibit? With Megan we see her collar took her three main powers. Shapeshifting, telepathy and telekinesis. For someone like Superman, who, as far as I'm aware, has at least four non related abilities( Strength, speed, flight and heat visions) can the collar inhibit all abilities or can someone just have too many powers for it to be able to cover?
5) The collars are set to negate the wearers specific power. How does this work? Is there a list of say standard powers like strength, speed, heat vision etc, and the collars are merely configured to whatever one is needed? I have to imagine that there must be at least some cases where an individual has a power unique enough that it hasn't been commonly seen or categorized. For the ice villains, they're mostly vague enough that you can just say "negate cryokinesis" but for someone with a more obscure ability, like say "can turn there body into smoke", do they have to look for some kind of common classification in order for it to work, e.g. "negate molecule manipulation"?

What are your thoughts on The Incredibles, and the fact that a sequel is in the works?
I loved The Incredibles, and I have high hopes of loving any sequel.
Have you locked down in your own mind the reason for Troia's departure from the Team? And Tempest's and Sergeant Marvel's?
1) I remember reading ages ago that you had a Zatanna arc, a Marvel Family arc and a Red Tornado arc planned for season 2, all of which had to be shelved because there wasn't enough room for them. Am I right in thinking that you wanted to include these stories - and would have included them - had season 2 been 26 episodes rather than 20?
2) Why didn't you have the Team meet Sgt. Marvel and Lt. Marvel in season 1? They weren't off-limits to you like Troia was (unless they were and you haven't said) and it strikes me that having the Team meet Mary and Freddy might have been a fitting climax to Captain Marvel's season 1 arc. Obviously you had a story in mind since you were going to do a Marvel Family adventure in the comic before you were asked to bring the comic into the season 2 era. So yeah, just wondering why you opted to leave Mary and Freddy out of season 1?
1. Most likely, yes. Either there or in our companion comic series.
2. We opted to leave a TON of characters out of Season One. What would you have taken out of that season to make room for them? (Don't answer that. I don't actually want to know.) We made the season (in both seasons) that we wanted to make, taking our best shot, given the number of episodes in the order. As I've said before, we wanted to put both Troia and Sgt. Marvel in Season Two, but there wasn't time to get them designed.
Hi Greg, a simple yes, no, or maybe would suffice for this question. Is there a closeted (or possibly outed) gay/lesbian couple in the Young Justice team?
I won't give you a yes, no or a maybe. Just a NO SPOILERS.
Hello there Greg!
1. I just wanted to know if the young justice team in the show ever came up with a team name for themselves? The show itself Is called young Justice but Dick, kaldur etc refer to it only as the team. So did they just call it a team or give themselves the NAME young justice?
2. It has come to my knowledge that the YJ comic and tv show are drastically different. Is there any kind of reason you didn't want to follow the comics specifically or just had a better story?
3. Not sure if this counts as a spoiler but did Bart KNOW and had met anyone if his timeline that was apaprt of the old yj team or the justice league itself or did he just hear stories from civilians? How did he come to know his family heritage and who his grandfather was?
1. They're the Team. Honestly, I'm surprised people keep asking this question. (Not just you. I get this all the time. Especially on Twitter.) There are 46 episodes and 26 comic book issues out there and in NONE of them do the characters ever refer to the Team by any other name. Why would one think there's any other name? And why would you need any other name for a COVERT unit?
2. It depends WHICH YJ comic you're referring to. The 90s YJ comic was part of the continuity of that day. We weren't adapting any one comic or any one continuity. We were doing an adaptation of the ENTIRE DC Universe's 75 years of continuity through the prism of its young heroes. On the other hand, if you're referring to the Young Justice companion comic that we did while the show was on the air, then ALL the stories in that book are in continuity and canon to the series.
3. No spoilers. Though clearly, he knew Nathaniel Tryon, at minimum.
1) When did G Gordon first arrive on Earth, assuming of course he is indeed from Apokolips?
2) What year did he begin his talk show?
3) Does Gordon have any actual super powers in any shape or form? Is his ability to sway the public just simply showmanship tactics, or does he posses some limited hypnosis or mind control abilities similar to Queen Bee
1. I'm not going to confirm or deny or explain or spoil anything.
2. I haven't broken that down.
3. No spoilers.
Hi, Greg! Back in 2012, in response to a question about Queen Bee's real name, you asked: "What makes you think her name isn't Bee?"
From what I can tell by poking around with Arabic phonology and Google Translate, it wouldn't make much sense for her personal name to be "Bee" - that sound in Arabic, usually Romanised as "bi", means "my" in English, apparently. I am, of course, assuming that Bialyans on Earth-16 speak Arabic, given the country's geographical location and some of the established placenames.
But of course, she could easily be named something like Nihla, which means "bee". "Malikat Alnnahl" is "Queen Bee" in Arabic, and you can (I think) see where "nihla" becomes "nahl" in that phrase, with the "al" prefix meaning "of" that should be familiar to all of us from Ra's al Ghul, "Demon's Head" or "Head of the Demon", as well as lots and lots of placenames. I assume the extra N comes from how you conjoin syllables in Arabic, but that's purely a guess.
Hopefully you found that interesting. Anyway: without asking you to confirm or deny anything specific, like "Yes, her name is Nihla", would you say it's fair to assume that "Bee" is more of an English *translation* of her personal name, rather than a transliteration of the sound of her personal name into Roman characters?
I found it very interesting. And your explanation seems likely. But I couldn't commit to anything one way or another, without doing my own research.
In the episode "Homefront" and "Infiltrated" Robin/Dick Grayson uses a WayneTech override code "RG4". Does the RG stand for Richard Grayson? Also do the other members of the Bat Family have similar override codes (e.g. AP# BW# TD#)?
Yes, "RG" stands for Richard Grayson. Other codes for other individuals logically exist, though I won't go into specifics.
Hello! I was just wondering, in the episode Revelation (season 1 episode 14) of Young Justice, why did Batman wait nearly eleven hours before combating the giant plant?
Thank you for your time, and I hope you have a lovely day!
That doesn't sound right.
On YA was it someone specific or collaboration to use or create a new Aqualad and make him the team leader?
By "YA," I assume you mean YJ.
In any case, the creation of Kaldur'ahm was a team effort between Phil Bourassa, Brandon Vietti and myself. As for making him the leader of the Team, it just felt right.
Rewatching Salvage in season 2 of Young Justice. Question came to me.
How did the League figure out the crystal Appellaxian could redirect sonic attacks? Among the original seven (Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Hal Jordan, Flash, Aquaman, and Manhunter) there is no one with sound-based powers. If Black Canary had been part of the original team, maybe, but how else?
Not trying to be confrontational, just curious. Thank you for your time.
Batman tried to shatter it with his bat-horn (which is like a bullhorn, but bat-themed). Boy, was he sorry he tried that. Could be why we haven't seen him use it since!
Alex Hirsch used to respond when people asked him about Gravity Falls merchandise that Disney actually kept track of every time someone went into a Disney store and asked for merch from a specific brand. Do you think it would be worth a shot to try asking for Gargoyles merch this way to show Disney that there's still interest in the brand?
Hi, Greg! It's been several years since I've posted, but these questions came to me while I was getting ready for work this morning and I wasn't sure if you'd ever commented on them before. In Eye of the Beholder, Goliath says that he has no love for Fox. Does this feeling change at all upon him learning that Fox is Halcyon Rendard's daughter? I'm not saying that I think this would make Goliath start liking her more, but I would think there might be a change of feeling/heart since Goliath regards Renard as a close friend (so instead of seeing Fox as someone he doesn't care about at all, he might see her in a different light due to Renard being her father). So this leads me to the following two questions:
1) If there was a change of feeling, what was that change? (How does he feel about her once he learns she is Rendard's daughter?)
2) If his new feelings were more positive towards Fox (if his feelings did change), then did those positive feelings have anything to do with Goliath's decision to stay at the Eyrie Building? Of course when Xanatos offered Goliath and his clan a ride back to the Eyrie Building to get away from the police, he took the ride to save the clan. But when they got to the Eyrie Building he had to make the decision of whether to stay there or not. I'm sure there were several reasons for them to stay, but was Fox having Renard as her father one of those reasons?
Thank you for your answer and your time, I know it's precious.
I think you're overthinking Goliath's statement about Fox in Eye of the Beholder. Taking it too literally. But...
1. More than anything, it's probably just a reminder to him that life is full of nuances. There's very little black and white.
1. Is Nguyen Lian's middle name or is it a part of her last name? (Nguyen-Harper).
2. Does Jade ever go by Jade Harper?
As always, thank you for doing this!
1. It's part of her hyphenated last name.
2. No. Long ago, she went by Jade Crock. But not in years.
Hey Greg! I'm a huge fan of your work and hope to see what you'll do in the future
Here's my question: If you were given the chance to revamp or handle writing an anime which one would it be?
1. Can Jaime's scarab translate non-verbal languages, like American Sign Language, Japanese Sign Language, etc?
2. And what about village sign languages, like Inuit and Hausa sign language?
3. Can the scarab translate ancient and dead languages too?
Thanks for answering!
1. Once the scarab's learned them.
2. Again, not without learning them, but once he has, then translation's fairly instantaneous.
3. See above.
I know you've said on multiple occasions that your favorite stand-alone episode of "Gargoyles" is "The Mirror" and that you are also fond of the multi-parters. Was there a particular multi-parter arc that you have as a favorite or are they all about even? Thanks in advance.
They're all pretty close to even. Of course, there's no show without "Awakening," so...
For fans of THE SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN, I've been doing a podcast where we go through the series, episode by episode, with guest starts including Josh Keaton (Peter/Spidey), Ben Diskin (Eddie/Venom), Supervising Director Vic Cook and others. The entire first season of "SPECTACULAR RADIO" is up now, here:
Plus, check out Spidey-Dude.com, which also does the podcasts Mayday Mondays (based on Spider-Girl) and Clone Saga Chronicles!
I've been wondering for some time: how do yo feel about the new direction that DC Animated Movies have taken (that is, releasing two movies a year that are a part of a shared continuity and releasing one that isn't)? I know that your style of storytelling seems to be telling incredibly intricately done and well-researched, linear stories. And I also know that, given your status as a hungry writer and sometimes employee of DC Animation, even if you didn't care for the new movies, you'd probably be obligated to find at least something positive to say about them. But I'm speaking from more of a storytelling perspective (i.e. execution of ideas) versus whether or not you like the movies, in and of themselves.
In general, I tend to think that they've released some good offerings, with some (Justice League: War, Batman vs. Robin, Batman: Bad Blood), of course, being better than others (Justice League: Throne of Atlantis, Son of Batman). I also, however, think that the crew behind those movies often fall prey to two problems.
The first problem is the short runtime. I feel like many of those movies start out with or build up to excellent premises or ideas, but because they're only 72 minutes long, an amazing plot will be shoehorned to conclusion in ten to fifteen minutes and the resolution will feel rushed or forced. Characters, both on the side of good and evil, will make major, nonsensical, life altering or, indeed, life ending decisions with next to zero provocation, next to zero buildup, next to zero forethought, and, thus, next to zero payoff in terms of emotional reactions from the audience.
The second problem is that, in my estimation, the producers and writers don't seem to be crafting a linear narrative or working from a single, coherent production bible. The goal seems to be more about putting out two movies while only having a broad idea of what they should include, with no real fine-tuning. I think that that's a problem when addressing what's supposed to be a single continuity of films and it leads to unnecessary and (eventually) gaping plot holes, etc. I digress. I understand that Warner Brothers, Cartoon Network, etc. supposedly doesn't like linear stories, right now. (Even Paul Dini once said something to that effect, arguing that executives feel that linear stories draw in too many girl viewers, versus boys who will purchase toys.) So, perhaps, that's why even with in-continuity movies, there isn't a heavy amount of connective tissue.
I haven't seen them.
Hey Mr Greg, just recently discovered gargoyles, great show.
Ok pointless question, but how do you think the Manhattan Clan is doing now after living in, Well Manhattan for 22 years?
Hey Mr.Weisman just have a few comments. First off you're one of the greatest creative producers/showrunners in animation and I don't mean to kiss up or anything; but your shows have consistently been quality work. Spectacular Spider-Man in particular is perhaps my favorite comic adaption.And speaking of Marvel I heard that you was writing some comic book series for their All New Marvel lineup but I can't pinpoint what it is but anyways keep up the good work!
It was STARBRAND & NIGHTMASK. I'm very proud of it, but unfortunately, the book was cancelled before the first issue ever hit the stands. We did produce six issues, which are available as individual issues and as a trade paperback on Comixology.
hey greg :)
i wanted to know:
if Miss Martian did have a cloak to make her invisible, why did she get seen in so many episodes?
She doesn't have a cloak to make her invisible; she's using her natural camouflage power (and psychically controlling her bio-suit so that it will also use its camouflage power). And it's CAMOUFLAGE, not invisibility. So she's hard but not impossible to see, especially when she's moving.
This is the Farano Enterprises that ND was asking what they specialize in and you thought he or she might be talking about Xanatos Enterprises: http://youngjustice.wikia.com/wiki/Farano_Enterprises
What does Farano specialize in?
I don't know. Since I didn't write that issue of the comic, I don't know where Art & Franco got the idea for Farano. It IS in continuity. But I've never given it any thought.
Thanks for clearing up my confusion.
How does martian's camouflage works.
Camouflage: Is a power that Martians can master, a specific usage of their shape-shifting abilities. It allows them to blend into the background by bending thelight around them. That's how martian's Camouflage it works?.
They are NOT bending the light around them. They are matching the colors of their bodies to the colors of the background. It's difficult and imperfect. But it's fairly effective if they are standing still. Less effective while they are in motion.
Hello, Greg! I love Young Justice, and I have done everything that I could think of to support and promote it. It is an understatement to say that I really want a third season, and I know so many other fans who want the same. I know you need funding in order to make another season, so may I suggest that the fans of Young Justice send their receipts to you? The receipts showing that they have bought the Young Justice seasons, merchandise, video games, etc? It would persuade more fans to buy Young Justice merchandise and will hopefully put the amazing show more in demand. Maybe you or I could make a website where we show/post all our receipts? Or an email you have access to? If you answer yes I will share this over social media websites in the hopes to get Young Justice more marketing. Please consider my request, thank you Greg.
I appreciate your enthusiasm, but there's literally no point in sending me receipts.
You see, I'm not the one to whom fans need to prove their purchasing power. That would be Time-Warner. And Time-Warner doesn't need the receipts either, because they'll get the actual money from the purchases.
And I REALLY don't see how posting other people's receipts (which, btw, often contain confidential info) would get other fans to buy more. I just don't see the connection there at all.
Hi greg :)
1.In young justice Martians have density shifting so they can move through solid objects but, can they increase their density to become more durable and difficult the damage?.
2.You said than Martians are stronger than humans but how much.is their strength similar or equal to Captain marvel's strength or aquaman's strength?.
1. In theory, by reducing their volume. It's an advanced technique.
2. I'm not big on these kinds of comparisons. So much is situational.
In Young Justice, when are Don and Dawn Allen born?
Team Year Six.
In Young Justice/Earth 16, when specifically, did Wonder Woman come back to Themyscira after World War 2?
Did you ever have any plans for Artemis Crock for your planned run on Green Arrow back in the 80s when you were at DC?
Nope. I think Roy Thomas created the character a year or two after I submitted my G.A. proposal.
I have a comment, and a question.
1. I hope you never have trouble finding work, your writing is quite inspiring. I just rewatched and, with great difficulty, reread the comics (hard to find them without paying a month's rent). It's nice to remember why I loved it so much as a kid, and find a lot more to fall in love with, like how I -never- even noticed 'David and Goliath' before.
2. Would you ever consider Kickstarter or Fig in order to get fundage to be able to work on Gargoyles more in some way?
1. Thank you. I have had trouble finding work at times, but that's the business I chose.
2. I can't crowd-fund something I don't own. And I don't own Gargoyles.
Since from what you've said it sounds like Banshee wouldn't have been the villain of the piece in Heroes of Ulster, would you please shed some light on who or what the antagonists/challenges would have been?
No spoilers. Sorry.
Hi Greg! This isn't so much a question as it is a statement (I don't have any questions that don't fall into "spoiler" territory and I live in eternal hope that there will be more Young Justice to come, so I wouldn't dream of bothering you with spoilery-questions).
I just wanted to say -- I watched Young Justice devotedly from it's premiere through second season finale, and -- although almost three years have passed since "Endgame" premiered, YJ is still one of my utmost favorite shows. Your characterization and inclusion of some of my most-loved DC characters excited me then, and still excites me now. YJ-canon is, actually, my favorite (and IMO the most logical) canon for the DC Universe.
No matter how many times I rewatch it (repeatedly and often, as I own the bluray), it still captivates and draws in new viewers. Just this previous month I got my boss and his daughter hooked! I'm hoping Cartoon Network (or, well, any network or streaming service with the ability to produce new seasons) notices that after nearly three years without new episodes, the fandom is still devoted and growing. Here's to hoping they get their act together and let you make a third season (sooner, rather than later).
Anywhos, that became a bit long-winded, but I wanted to thank you for gifting us with this wonderful series and wish you well. I hope you had a fantastic holiday! :)
Thanks, Julie. I do think there's a decent chance of it coming back.
Did Earth-16 Robin ever think that the opposite of deterred should be "terred", then change his mind as soon as he heard himself say it?
Uh... sure. If that makes you happy.
Biologically speaking, how old are Ra's and Savage.
51 and 44.
I've asked before about a matter concerning storytelling in a general sense, and now I'd like to ask about a more specific one. Namely about the symbiote in "Spectacular Spider-Man." What I'm going to ask is not really spoiler-ish, I think, but is more of an issue that I didn't think about until recent months. And, to be honest, it's one that I don't see a lot of people noticing.
Simply put, why does the Symbiote costume look the way it does when Spidey first dons it in the show? The audience recognizes it because of how iconic it is, but what's the in-universe reason for its overall appearance? Admittedly, I may've missed something when I first watched the show, and it could be that I'm not thinking of any reason due to not having seen the full show in a while, but it's a question that I think needs answering. Plus, it's something that wasn't addressed in the 90s animated series either.
In the original comics where the Symbiote first appeared, the "Secret Wars" miniseries, the story did give an in-universe reason for the way Spidey's black costume appeared. The heroes had an alien machine that would repair their outfits or give them new ones. When it was Spidey's turn, he was subconsciously thinking about Spider-Woman's (Julia Carpenter's) outfit, which was mostly black and had the classic white spider symbol. There, it made sense.
Now, obviously, you guys couldn't do the Secret Wars stuff within "Spectacular Spider-Man," but in doing the Symbiote storyline, I respectfully don't think you explained its appearance. It just appears and almost instantly becomes a black suit not long after. Sure, the characters acknowledge the different outfit on Spidey, but, again, there wasn't any apparent reason for the costume's design to look the way it did, aside from it just being iconic to the audience.
So, again, I ask you; was there an in-universe reason within the "Spectacular Spider-Man" show for the Symbiote's costume look to appear the way it did?
It was a black symbiotic, so it was a black costume. I think maybe you're overthinking it. Also, notice how it evolved over the four episodes it appeared in.
Sorry if this is not the right place for the question but i would like to ask if you are able to come on the podcast that i co host it's the glen and dean show. If you are interested please email me at glenlongwell@Gmail.com
By now, of course, I've already been on the podcast. But if other podcasts are interested in contacting me - and getting a faster-than-nine-months response, find me on Twitter @Greg_Weisman.
My name is Mexi Gremillion and I am going to be writing for film and television when I finish college in May. I was wondering if I could ask you a few questions possibly about your experience as a creator and writer of fantastic television series like Gargoyles and Young Justice via email if possible, but it is totally fine if I ask you publicly on this sort of forum. I love your work and it's totally fine if you don't answer this, but I hope you do. Thank you so much for your time.
I'd prefer to keep things in this forum. I know you asked this question nine months ago, so if you're still checking this, I'd recommend that you look at the Ask Greg archives under WRITING and/or WRITING TIPS. See if your questions were asked and answered already. If you still have more questions, post them here.
Long time fan, occasional asker here. I've loved all your work on Spectacular Spider-Man, Young Justice, Gargoyles, and now Star Wars Rebels. (Hearing that you were going to be working on Rebels about a year and a half ago is actually what got me to start looking at the greater Star Wars universe and become a huge fan, so I also have to thank you for getting me into a wonderful fandom!)
I am curious though about your work on the Kanan comic.
1) Was it something you asked to do or were asked to do? (I guess I'm curious if you went and said 'I have a great idea for a comic' or if someone came up to you and said 'So we have a comic idea we want you for...')
2) Kanan's traits of curiosity; I find it interesting that the fact he asks questions a lot was something prominent as a child, but seems very muted as an adult. Did he stop asking questions a lot due to trauma, or was it a natural result of growing up on the run?
I want to thank you for taking the time to answer these questions, and have a wonderful day!
1. I was asked and jumped at the chance.
2. All of the above.
You know, I've thinking/remembering about something lately. Back in 2014, there was an April Fools' joke where can article spring up about a Gargoyles movie in the works. A lot of people believed it. In 2012, Cartoon. Network played a practical joke where it revived the Toonami block for that single night. The feedback it received, after it's cancellation in 2008, were amazing! Anyone looking it up on Wikipedia and who helped with it's revival knew what an impact it made with CN.
So, I thought, "Hey, if something that can happen on CN, where they continue to show really old animes and other cartoons, then why can't Disney stop being such money-grubbers for a single day and do something similar? Like in 2014, pull an "April Fools' joke with Gargoyles and air a few episodes. See what happens, can't hurt, right?"
What do you think? Think something like that could ever happen?
I don't see any need to tie this to April Fools Day. If they want to test it they can. It's their show to test or not to test. At the moment, they don't seem interested.
And I don't have a clue as to what any of this has to do with Disney being or not being "money-grubbers." That seems beside the point. Like you just want to use every opportunity to take a shot at Disney wanting to turn a profit, which is - frankly - silly. If Disney didn't want to turn a profit, you'd have NEVER gotten Gargoyles in the first place. Do you think they put that show on the air thinking, "Well, we'll lose money on this one..."? Cuz, NO. They thought the show would earn money for the company. And it did. And then they thought they'd have a better chance to earn more money with something else. And we were off the air. It's ALWAYS been that way. Sometimes, that helps us. Sometimes, it doesn't.
Hi, Greg. Gotta question for you: Since Disney cancelled the release of season 2 part 2 due to low sales back in day, and as fans, we openly support the release of the DVD when it finally came out in 2013 to show how popular and profitable Gargoyles is and can be, I'm curious to know know how the sales went.
As Disney only cares for profit nowadays, then it stands to reason that they be considering Gargs for a reboot or SOMETHING is the sales are a bit hit, right? Do you think it's possible for you learn how the sales went, just to see the level of interest for your own show, financially-wise? I got my copies as soon it wasn't in the $100s after its release.
I don't know how the sales went. I don't work at Disney, and that's not information they share with me. You're as likely to be able to obtain that info, as I am.
When you say, "As Disney only cares for profit NOWADAYS...", I balk. Disney the company only EVER cared about profits, at least since they became a publicly held company (before I was born). But various talented people at Disney - then and now - have always cared about more than that. It's no different now then it has been for DECADES.
And, to be clear, I don't want a reboot. I want to do more of what we were doing. I don't want to start it over, which is what a reboot would be.
Hello! Big Gargoyles fan here! I want to ask about Katana, Nashville, and Fu-Dog! This is probably be too spoiler-y, but I'm gonna give it a shot.
1.) We don't much about Katana as a character. Are there details you can give to the fans about her personality, her interests, her quirks, etc.? You described Brooklyn and Katana's relationship as a Sam-Diane, Bertrand-Beatrice thing, so I imagine Katana being a lot of more serious than the wise-cracking Brooklyn, which probably why the had conflict. Being raised in the way of Bushido, I also imagine she's honorable and from what we've seen from her appearance in the comics, she's very protective over Egwardo (Taichi).
2.) Nashville is about 10 in human years, and 20 in gargoyle years, right? He's really young, though, no matter how you look at it. I find it a little hard to imagine Brooklyn and Katana allowing him on dangerous missions. I think he is quite skilled, but are there any limitations they set for their son?
3.) Katana and Gnash are both bilingual. What's their speech pattern like? Gnash seems more like Brooklyn in personality, so his way of speaking is probably similar to his father. I imagine Katana being more formal with her words. When they speak, do they string English and Japanese words in a sentence? Does Katana speak solely in Japanese sometimes when speaking to Gnash?
3.) Fu-Dog is Brooklyn's first companion in his TimeDancer adventures. What kind of personality does he have, besides being fiercely loyal to Brooklyn? Is he similar to Bronx or dissimilar?
1. I think you mean Beatrice-Benedick. But beyond that, I'm not saying anything. You'll have to wait to see her in execution, hopefully in future comics.
2. When we first meet Nashville, he's 19-years-old chronologically. Ten-years old biologically. I'm sure B&K set limitations for their son, but by necessity, since they didn't want to risk leaving him behind while TimeDancing, they kept him close, even if close meant he was occasionally in danger.
3. Again, this is about execution. I'm not going to preempt myself.
4. No spoilers.
Hello! Will you be posting the script for the 2014 CONvergence Radio Play, "Recruits", here on the site like you did with the previous one? :)
No. Or at any rate, not now.
But you can watch it on YouTube, I believe.
What do you think about the Genesis Gargoyles game
I'm not a gamer, so I've never played it.
Around the 2nd season of Gargoyles when The Pack was in Egypt, were Hyena and Jackal spies for Preston Vogel?
1) Why did Artemis and Wally adopted Brucely/why did they wanted a dog? (I love that they have a dog together, specially a pit bull, even more if it is based on Stephanie's pup!)
2) Who's idea was in the first place to have a dog?
1. Why does anyone want a dog?
2. Brandon Vietti.
It's such an honor to be able to write to you through this site. Thank you so much for replying to your fans questions. Not many cartoon creators do that and I think is a big shame... Then again, I understand it can be hard to deal with unwanted questions too. Anyways; I'm a huge fan of Young Justice and its second season. I can't say enough how much I love everything about this show. From the characters, to the action, to the plots, to the drama, to the voice cast, to the comedy, to the animation and effects, etc. Everything about YJ says awesomeness. Needless to say I am one more of those fans who would die to have a third season :'( I really miss this series and in just the past four days I have rewatched the whole show again. I love this show and I really miss it on the air D:
Ok, to the questions (hope you'll be helpful, please) Regarding the so devastating Endgame episode and my #1 couple on the show, Artemis and Wally. When everything was over and Barry and Bart stopped running, Artemis was obviously sad and worried searching and asking for Wally. She doesn't start crying until Barry let her know that Wally loved her:
1) Were Wally's words a surprise to Artemis?
2) In all those years together. Did Wally ever told Artemis to her face that he loved her?
3) The same for Artemis. Did she ever told Wally to his face that she loved him?
I think is pretty obvious these two really loved each other, is just that Artemis' loss of Wally felt so deep... Wally's death was a huge sacrifice to save the world, and it really showed what a great hero and man he was. And Artemis breaking down in tears and when her and the Wests are comforting each other are scene that break my heart whenever I see them. I am sad for everyone who lost Wally. And I am sad that Wally can't be with his family, friends, and love of his life anymore. But that doesn't take away what a well done and dramatic finale Endgame is. Thank you for creating this show, which is one of the best shows I have ever watched (I grew up watching Gargoyles and Justice League, just so you can imagine how old I am) and though it might sound crazy, I don't lose hope it might get a new season some day.
Thank you for your time.
1. I think she knew that Wally loved her. I also think she knew that if Barry was leading with that, it meant Wally was dead.
Thanks for the kind words, and I wouldn't lose hope. I think there's a better than decent chance that YJ might come back.
