Hey, again, Greg!
So, I recall you saying somewhere (I think on the Season Set) that the reason you redesigned the Vulture was because you didn't want too many green villains....
So, and I'm not sure if you can say this, but I don't really see it as a spoiler, when you guys design Scorpion, do you want to use his blue suit? Or have you not yet decided yet?
Thanks Greg! Good luck tomorrow! (I'm writing this the day before the finale airs - you'll be able to tell me how it went by the time you get this!)
I think Hasbro didn't want too many green villains. We didn't mind, but I do think our version of Vulture turned out very cool. And he's still a bit green (what appears mostly black is really very dark green, I think).
But Scorpion's design is a bit moot now.
I have to ask, are Dragons real life creatures in the world of Gargoyles? And if they are, do they get the 'Gargoyle Treatment', like they are/were noble creatures or were they chaotic evil creatures?
And what would said dragons look like? European, Chinese, Japanese?
Well, we saw a dragon in the "Pendragon" episode. And one is visible in the Dark Ages pitch.
How did Demona learn so much about human technology over the centuries? It couldn't have been easy.
She made it her business to learn what she needed to know.
Who's remains did Goliath confuse for Demona's when he returned to Castle Wyvern?
A gargoyle without a name.
Why was the appearance of the mutates changed between metamorphosis and the cage? And why were their tails removed?
This has been answered before. Please check the archives under "Mutates, The".
Skimming through the archives, I saw the question asked: "... Both Fox and David Xanatos have been to prison.. does this mean that neither of them can vote?"
You had replied: "Honestly, I'd have to research that."
Curious, I used my powers Google-fu and found that the answer is...
"In New York, individuals who have been convicted of a felony cannot vote while incarcerated or on parole. Once an individual has completed his or her sentence, the right to vote is automatically restored, but it is up to the individual to re-register with their county board of elections. Individuals on probation retain the right to vote."
So I guess the real question becomes: Are either Xanatos or Fox on parole?
I realize by the time you see this it'll have been a few months since the original question, but I just thought I'd pass along what I learned. :)
As of January 4th, 1995, David began serving his probation.
As of September 6th, 1995, Fox was released on parole.
As of October 31st, 1997, David's probation ends.
I don't know when Fox's parole ends. I'd have to research that too.
At one point, L.A. D.D.A. Tuppence Macintyre told me the difference between parole and probation, but I can no longer remember exactly what those differences are (beyond what you wrote above) or why David was on probation and Fox was on parole.

Sorry. It was blocked when I tried to watch it.
For the 3rd season of SSM, in response to many questions about plans regarding existing characters, you have answered that you have big plans for the character in question. You have even written that you have plans for all your characters. I suspect that the last statement is hyperbole (though you certainly are economical with your characters). Should a 3rd season be a go, given that there are a limited number of minutes in the season and the introduction of new characters, there must be a reduction in screen time for existing characters. While I'll refrain from asking for spoilers by asking which characters would see such a reduction, I'll ask the more general question of: is there a point in which you feel a character has nothing more to add to the planned storylines and if so, when in the story planning process does it occur?
Well, it's all moot now regarding Spidey, but as a general rule, I rarely feel a character has lost all potential. We fit in as much as we can, which tends to be a lot. In the case of SpecSpidey, decisions as to who would have screen time or how much were made relative to the life of Pete.
This is something I've been pondering for a while. And since, considering the timeline, it will be a very long time before you get to this point, if ever, I hope you don't mind me asking about this.
We know that Alex eventually becomes Secretary General of the United Nations. He's the son of two of the most brilliant people on the planet. He's going to grow up fabulously wealthy. And he's got a lot of power, being Titania's grandson. Not to mention living with gargoyles, this isn't going to be a typical kid.
So, I am curious. What are Alex's teenage years going to be like? I mean, we have this highly intelligent kid, born into lots of money, and packing supernatural powers... is he going to go through a rebellious phase? Is he going to be an obedient son?
I think back to my own teen years (and yes, I got into plenty of trouble then), and I can't help but wonder about Alex's.
I know this is way down the line, but have you given it any thought?
I've given it a ton of thought, but I'm not sure what kind of answer you really expected in this forum.
Greg-Spetacular Spider-Man is a great show! I hope it has been renewed by the time you read this. Anyways my question is why did Pete try to destroy the symbiote by freezing it when it came from the vacuum of space? How could anything on Earth top the cold of space?
Thanks to you and all your staff and actors for the best Spider-Man adaption ever.
Very good point. I think at the very least he hoped to contain it.
