Hi Greg! First, I just want to say that I am so excited for Young Justice season 3! I can't wait to see what you have in store for us. :-) I just had a few questions about Bart Allen, if that's okay, since I saw you explain in a response that he does not have the same hyper-active metabolism that Wally does & doesn't have to eat/keep food handy like him:

1.) Does he still have to eat/drink more/more often than a non-speedster would, or would he dehydrate/be affected by hunger more quickly?

2.) Do illnesses, medicines, sedatives, poisons, etc. affect him differently? Like, do they have little to no effect, the effects not last very long, or something else?

3.) Similarly, does he have any accelerated healing? For example, would a broken bone heal much more quickly for him (though posibly incorrectly if not set right) or a cut not last very long?

Thank you for taking the time to read this!

1. He's hungry a lot. Whether that's a speedster-metabolism thing or a teenager-metabolism thing, I'll leave to your discernment.

2. We'll have to address that on a case by case basis.

3. I would think so.
