A while back one of the concept artists on the show posted some concept art of catherine Cobert (from the old Justice League Europe series, I believe), and mentioned that at some point she was meant to have been in the pilot episode as some sort of tour guide or liason at the Hall of Justice.
So do you know if she made it into the script only to be cut out due to budget stuff, or was the character dropped at an earlier point in the production cycle?
Either way, hope you and the rest of your team keep up the good work.
She was in the script I wrote and we recorded her (with Stephanie Lemalin playing Catherine) but her part/scene was cut for time at the storyboard stage. Catherine survives in the show in a way, as she is still the voice of the League's computer. In my mind, she's still the League's public affairs officer, but we just haven't had the opportunity to show her yet. (It's a dense, crowded show.)
I couldn't help but notice the choice of villians in this week's episode. Considering the name of the episode that Artemis appears, might this have been a hint to her identity? It's something i've considered for a while after you explained in interviews who she isn't...
Also, apologies about being so vague. But I figured it was the best way to put it in case I cracked the clues and you didn't want to spoil anything directly.
You're so vague, I don't even know what you're asking.
I have a question on the western animation process in general (with special regard to YJ), if this is too complex to explain here or not the appropriate place for the question please ignore.
1. I think you mentioned that the inbetweens are done in South Korea. So is it fair to assume the key frames are done in house?
2. Using episode 2 "Fireworks" as an example how does an episode get made?
Does it start with you writing and onto the storyboard and to the animation team? (Sorry this part of the question was a bit vague)
3. At what point of the process does the Director of the episode come into play and what are his contributions?
4. What are the producers contribution to the process and how much weight does their word carry as opposed to the directors if a disagreement should arise?
Thanks. Also I did catch Scooby-Doo after hearing Victor Cook had a hand in it and it was a nice nostalgia trip, a bit weird like how real nostalgia is but nice nonetheless. Ermm thanks again I guess.
1. No. Key frames are done in Korea too. Boarding is done here in the states for the most part.
2. Writing, recording, boards and design, color, shipping, animation, post-production.
3. At all points. And his or her contributions are omniverous.
4. Producers trump directors, and Brandon and I are very involved at every stage.
Hey again Greg
Just had a couple of questions about "Drop-Zone" that I wanted to post seperatly from my review. At the end of the episode we see Sportsmaster being debriefed by the Light. Two of the Light members had speaking roles, L-1 played by Miguel Ferrer and another member who seems to have a very thick French accent. At least it sounded Freanch, feel free to correct me if I'm wrong
1) Who played the seemingly French Light memeber?
2) What was his number designation? We know Ferrer is L-1, Mark Ralston plays L-3
3) How many members of the Light are there in total?
1. Nolan North did to save some money.

âYoung Justice: Drop-Zoneâ review
Really great episode all round, I think this is what most of us have been waiting for since âIndependence Dayâ first aired back in November.
First off, I know a lot of folks thought Desmondâs transformation into Blockbuster was pretty disturbing but damn, Mammoth just took it to a whole new level of nightmare fuel. Not only do we get his skin ripping of but exposed muscle tissue and everything. You guys must have the most laid back S&P exec in history.
Back to the actual plot, this episode really sells the idea of Young Justice as the Leagueâs covert-ops team. I especially liked how the team still hasnât completely gelled yet, as befits their first official mission. Everyoneâs unsure of their roles and they donât even have a leader yet. Robinâs got a lot of natural talent and heâs probably the best suited for covert work, but he lacks the necessary maturity. I like the idea of Kaldur taking on the âburden of leadershipâ until Robinâs ready. I got to say Kaldurâs my favourite character so far and Iâm looking forward to seeing how he grows as a leader in the future.
Iâm a big supervillain geek, so this episode had a lot for me to like. Bane was very cool, a lot of writers forget Baneâs supposed to be a strategist as well as a brawler, so it was refreshing to see him playing the YJers and the Kubra Cult against each other. I also enjoyed Lord Kobra, any dude created by Jack Kirby is automatically worth looking into for me but I loved what Arnold Vosloo did with the character, supremely arrogant yet very cold and understated. Itâs easy to see how a cult of personality formed around this guy.
Sportsmaster seemed pretty left field but interesting. Iâm familiar with the character from âBatman: The Brave & The Boldâ but never expected to see him in a show like this. Still, I liked the way you guys re-imagined him as more of a mercenary then weirdo with a gimmick.
It was also very cool to see the Light again, Iâve been looking forward to seeing these guys again and it looks like their conspiracy seems to stretch across the super-criminal community. Project Cadmus, the Kobra Cult and even Professor Morrow and Mr. Twister, they seem to have their fingers in many dubious pies.
Like I said great episode that just makes my hungry for more, canât wait to see where you guys are going with this.
We're going somewhere GREAT!!
In my opinion, anyway.
I just re watched City of Stone, and in part 4 MacBeth "dies" for the first time. His wife convinces him to leave Scotland, citing that his subjects would no longer accept him as King if they knew of his magical bond with Demona. My question is, who has to know that he died? The only people who saw him killed were his family and the Hunter...and who of MacBeth's subjects would believe the Hunter over the Royal Family? Granted, after long enough his people would notice him not aging, but during that war and with his family so vulnerable, it seems like a terrible time to fade into the wind.
Thank you so much for creating what I and many people consider the most intellegent and literally epic animated series ever, and for staying connected with your tireless fanbase.
By the time Macbeth and Gruoch could have/would have gotten to them, Bodhe and Luach would have announced Macbeth's death.
Almost every show seems to do a Christmas themed episode at some point down the line. Any chance there can ever be a Chanukka themed episode in YJ at some point. (Though I don't know how you'd make it work considering none of the main characters are Jewish, but it's just a thought. The last cartoon to have a chanukka themed episode was Rugrats, I think.)
Anywho, Love the show, keep up the good work!
All the best,
Hi, Greg! I did a search but I couldn't find where it was answered in full, so about how old are the Justice League in Young Justice? The ki -- young adults are well known, but the adults seem considerably vaguer. Thank you for your time and the answer (hopefully).
I've listed some of them already. Check the Young Justice archives here at ASK GREG.
Does Lois Lane know Clark Kent is Superman in Young Justice?
