A Station Eight Fan Web Site
Hiya, Greg! Just watched "Terrors" for about the fifth time, and am officially declaring it my favorite episode so far of the first season. Kudos on the beyond-awesome representations of Hugo Strange, Icicle Sr., and the Wall herself.
In any event, however, I'd like to take a moment to return to some of your previous work...or rather, something that it has spawned. Over the past several months, fans of your series have used "Religious Studies 101" as a jumping-off point to start a role-playing community on the social networking site Formspring, with each player taking on an account(s) on behalf of a character from one universe or the other and answering questions from other users accordingly.
While I would not advise you to actually take a look at the site itself (as while the community has produced some really great and enjoyable work, it's still fanfiction, if in a rather unconventional format), I couldn't resist using this opportunity to find out a nice little nugget of info from each of your characters: what they all think about YOU.
...Yep, as silly as it seems, I've spent about six months asking each and every player their answer to the query, "What is your opinion on Greg Weisman?" and recording their responses in the S8 Comment Room. And now that every single response is in (and I've edited the list to avoid any responses that might hint at an outside idea), I'm presenting them all to you now.
I hope that you find the whole of them amusing; I know I did. :D
THE CAST OF "GARGOYLES"
Elisa Maza: I loved his work on "Captain Atom."
Okay, I admit it, I love comic books.
Hudson: I prefer Celebrity Hockey.
Brooklyn: "Young Justice" kicks ass. I watch it with Gnash, Broadway, Lex, and Angela every week.
Lexington: I don't know how he put up with so many people asking him about my future mate....
Broadway: He writes some of the best shows on TV!
Angela: Oh, he's a magnificent writer! I love how he brings Shakespeare into every one of his shows in many different ways.
Coldstone: Isn't he responsible for that show that Nashville, Brooklyn, Angela, and Lexington always watch?
Coldfire: I watch some of his shows with Nashville, Brooklyn, Lexington, Angela, and Broadway...I enjoy a storyteller who is respectful towards all religious beliefs.
Katana: I do not know him.
Nashville: He's cool.
Bronx: *BARKS HAPPILY!*
Matt Bluestone: Greg Weisman? Nashville was talking about him just the other day; that and some show called "Young Justice." From what I hear, Weisman is one clever individual.
Officer Morgan Morgan: He's that truck driver Mysterio attacked last year and Spider-man pulled him out of the river, right?
I read about him in the paper...*yawns*
Oh boy...I did NOT get enough sleep last night...
David Xanatos: I would love to acquire him for my Pack Media division.
Owen Burnett: A very talented and creative individual. Mr. Xanatos has charged me with acquiring him for our Pack Media division. Unfortunately, he seems quite personally invested in his current project at Warner Bros. Animation.
Fox: He would have been a great addition to Pack Media Studios.
Alexander Fox Xanatos: Apparently pop was trying to hire him away from Warner Bros. Don't blame him for not leaving, Young Justice is pretty kick-ass. Robin's my fav.
Demona: He is a human.
Thailog: I'm thinking of starting my own studio. I might just hire him.
Shari: Greg Weisman is a storyteller...and a good one. I think we're very much alike. I'd love to meet him and trade stories. Maybe I'll get to meet him if my boss is serious about hiring him to develop a new show.
Brentwood: greg wiseman smart
Doctor Anton Sevarius: The man certainly understands DRAMA!
Sir Peredur fab Ragnal: I like him.
Duval: I don't know him. Edmund Tsabard however, is part of our organization.
Quincy Hemings: I recall ol' Edmund saying a few things 'bout him. He didn't like him much...which means this Greg must be a rather decent guy.
Falstaff: He's a truck driver, right?
Points: My name is Points, he killed my father, prepare to die---Just kidding.
Bardolph: *BREATHS FIRE*
Mistress Quickly: Young Justice is entertaining...I like Kid Flash, he amuses me.
Mistress Doll: Ever met Edmund Tsabard? He's far more fun--and interesting--than that stick-in-the-mud Greg Weisman.
Macbeth: A fine bard and storyteller. My old friend, Will, would take to him instantly.
King Arthur Pendragon: I have not met this man, but I have heard nothing but good things.
Sir Griff: I'm having an existential crisis here.
Merlin: Oh yes...I do believe in God. What was your question again?
Lady Blanchefleur: I've heard all about this 'Edmund Tsabard' character he seems to dislike so much.
John Castaway: I believe that I share a name with his younger brother.
Coldsteel: Why should I care?
Coyote 6.0: I do not know him.
Wolf: Hack writer.
Jackal: His shows are so pretentious.
Hyena: That guy thought he was too good to write for our show. What's wrong with simple plots that are all about punching and kicking things? But no...Mr. Stuck Up there has to have "plot twists" and "character development" and all that other high and mighty crap.
Well, Michael Bay is the king of the box office, and no one gives a crap about...err...anyone who ever wins one of those lame awards. So, shows like ours for the win! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
The Tasmanian Tiger: I hear he sounds just like Osborn's lackey Donald Menken. That could come in handy at some point...
The Director: I am unfamiliar with him. Edmund Tsabard on the other hand is one of our high-priority targets.
Robyn Canmore: His sister has the same name I do.
Dingo: I love that guy!
Matrix: A database search indicates that he is an American Animation Writer. Is often confused for Edmund Tsabard who is wanted by Interpol, and as such Greg Weisman is often detained by airport security.
Yama: He's been to Ishimura once.
Fang: Never met him, but that Edmund Tsabard is a good pal O' mine.
Gunther Sturluson: I don't know any wise man, but a man named Edmund Tsabard passed through here a few years ago. He tried to lock Papa and me in the cave too.
Rory Dugan: Big fan, just wish more of his shows got released on DVD in region 2.
Natsilane: Didn't he live on a street named after our island?
Fara Maku: *Briefly changes back*
I admire my fellow storytellers...
*Transforms back into Panther-Form.*
Travis Marshall: I don't really watch television except for the news.
Doctor Jay Sato: I enjoyed his work on the dub of 3x3 Eyes. I think he's quite talented.
Terry Chung: I love "Young Justice". I hope we get to see more of Hawkgirl; I've always been fond of Hawkgirl.
Amanda Chung: Terry liked...likes Young Justice.
Officer Tri Chung: Used to have a roommate by that name.
Street Thugs: If he comes through our territory, he's going to have to pay the piper.
Talon: He's working with Sevarius!! ARE YOU HELPING HIM?
Delilah: Is this someone I should know about?
Thug: I like him. He's a good guy, and loves his kids.
Erin: I feel like I know him from somewhere... Didn't we meet him at a truck stop one time, Benny?
Benny: Yeah, Erin...I think we did...
Or maybe we just remember his name from the Young Justice credits..
Zafiro: I do not know this Amigo.
Obsidiana: I refer you to my mate's answer.
Kai: I do not know him, but a dishonorable man by the name of Edmund Tsabard passed through Ishimura a few years back, asking about Paris...
Sora: I do not know him either, but as Kai said, Edmund Tsabard passed through Ishimura some time ago...the beast actually had the nerve to ask me to model for him. Yama decided to introduce the pig to his katana.
The man lives...but is forbidden to enter Ishimura again on pain of death.
Una: He is a human. Hopefully NOT a Quarryman.
Leo: Don't care right now...
Constance: Isn't he a writer?
Staghart: He's the bloody Joss Whedon of Animation, what more needs to be said?
Lunette: Got hooked on Young Justice once it got here.
Old Pog: I have no idea who that is, you young whipper-snapper.
Princess Katharine: I dinnae know him. Should I?
Tom: I dinnae know this man...
Gabriel: I have never left this island, so I do not know this "Wise man."
Ophelia: I don't know, who is he?
Boudicca: *Cocks head quizzically, as if to ask..."Who's that?"*
Lord Oberon: A mortal man. Nothing more. Although I did meet him during the 1,001 years. I had a weakness for comics in the 80s and watched him put his own "Thumbprint" on Watchmen.
Not that he knew who I was.
Lady Titania: He is interesting, as far as humans go.
The Puck: Ah, now there's a storyteller who's been accurate about more things than that Shakespeare fellow ever was.
The Weird Sisters: We will consult the Scrying Cauldron...Double, Double, Toil and Trouble, Fire Burn and Cauldron Bubble!
Ah yes, he is a human bard with great potential.
Anubis: He will die.
Odin: A gifted storyteller, but a mortal one...so like most, inconsequential in the grand scheme of things.
Coyote the Trickster: An excellent Trickster in his own right...
Raven: I know the street he grew up on quite well. An amusing trickster, for a mortal.
Anansi: I love a good storyteller...
The Banshee: I care not about these mortals!
Lady of the Lake: A mortal bard, much in the vein of Malory or Shakespeare.
I liked W.I.T.C.H.
Boreas: I have not met any humans other then Elisa Maza and Terry Chung. I'm afraid I do not know enough of this individual to form an opinion.
Taurus: A human writer who is fond of the bastard murderer Theseus. I do not care for him.
Talos: Records indicate that he is a human writer of some note.
Sphinx: That sounds like a human name. Is that a human name?
Kiron: Who is that?
Helios: Taurus isn't too fond of him.
Ekidna: He is a threat to New Olympus, like all humans.
Proteus: I like all humans...they interest me...
The Stone of Destiny: His Destiny is an interesting one...
The Holy Grail: He is worthy to seek the Grail, should he accept the Quest.
The Phoenix: Tssseeeeeeeeeerrrr!!!!!
THE CAST OF "THE SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN" (AND THE WIDER MARVEL UNIVERSE)
Spider-Man: Didn't he write that song "The Will To Love?" I love that song. Oh, and "Young Justice" kicks ass too.
Peter Parker: "W.I.T.C.H." was pretty awesome and "Young Justice" kicks ass!
Gwen Stacy: I loved "W.I.T.C.H." I even dressed up as Nerissa for Halloween about two years ago.
Harry Osborn: My dad says real men don't watch cartoons.
Mary Jane Watson: I would voice act in one of his animated series any time. I'm actually just a tad jealous of the talented lady voicing Black Canary in "Young Justice."
Flash Thompson: Hmmm... *remembers watching the second season of W.I.T.C.H.* Um, never heard of him.
Sha Shan Nguyen: "W.I.T.C.H." was a lot of fun, and Flash and I have been waiting for new episodes of "Young Justice" for a while now.
Sally Avril: Never heard of him! Is this some kinda geek thing?
Rand Robertson: S'cool. I like his shows. Sally didn't like watching cartoons, so I have some catching up to do on Young Justice, I only caught the pilot cuz' she was out of town that weekend.
J. Jonah Jameson: I HATE TELEVISION! HOW DARE THAT MAN ROT THE MINDS OF OUR NATION'S YOUTH WITH THAT MINDLESS ANIMATED DRIVEL ON TELEVISION!
OUR CHILDREN SHOULD NOT BE WATCHING THE ADVENTURES OF MASKED VIGILANTES! HE'S GLORIFYING THAT BEHAVIOR AND THE LAST THING WE NEED ARE OUR KIDS IMITATING SPIDER-MAN!
Betty Brant: I don't know about Weisman, but Edmund Tsabard came through New York last month and rocked my world.
Ned Lee: I interviewed him about Young Justice once. He kinda reminds me of one of Betty's friends.
May Parker: Oh, he's that nice man that I met at the play the other evening...
Captain George Stacy: I remember sitting down with Gwen to watch the latest episode of W.I.T.C.H. when she was younger. Things seemed a lot simpler back then.
Doctor Ashley Kafka: His characters are always so fascinatingly complex.
The Green Goblin: He writes the best villains in all of animation. HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!
Norman Osborn: I don't think I've ever heard of him.
Emily Osborn: I do not watch cartoons.
Doctor Octopus: An incompetent hack. Now Edmund Tsabard, there's a real writer!
The Vulture: Didn't he tell me that I'm old once?
Electro: "Young Justice" rocks, just wish Red Arrow appeared more. He's cool!
Sandman: Who's that?
The Rhino: Who cares? I just wanna crush that stupid Web-head!
Kraven the Hunter: He would not survive the Hunt...
Mysterio: He creates awesome animated experiences and doesn't afraid of anything.
The Terrible Tinkerer: Met him once, he tried to buy the license to my Homunculi so he could make a cartoon about them.
The Homunculi: MAMA! MAMA!
Venom: We loved the second season of W.I.T.C.H.
Yeah, we like W.I.T.C.H.! Anybody want to make something of it?
Tombstone: I do not concern myself with second-rate writers.
Hammerhead: Never heard o' him.
Shocker: He works for Osborn, doesn't he?
Silver Sable: I had to spend twelve years of my life managing what remained of my father's business... I did not have time to watch cartoons. And with daddy back in jail, I still don't.
Chameleon (in the guise of Norman Osborn): I've already answered this question, so stop wasting my time. I've got a company to run.
Black Cat: I don't know him, but I have modeled for Edmund Tsabard.
Roderick Kingsley: I have no opinion on Weisman. Edmund Tsabard, on the other hand, designed a cologne for us that he promised would be a true aphrodisiac. He was right, but it was so effective that the F.D.A. refused to approve of it.
Tsabard was fired, and the cologne is only available in Thailand now.
The Hobgoblin: What kind of man is too shallow to admit to enjoying a well produced cartoon every now and then? I rather enjoy the subplot in "Young Justice" with the Light. Mysterious individuals hiding their identities and working towards their goals is a concept I find appealing.
Colonel Nick Fury: Never met him, but S.H.I.E.L.D. has been trying to take down Edmund Tsabard for years.
Jessica Drew: Captain Atom was a great comic.
Thor: He would be a worthy addition to the Warriors Three. They would have to change their team name, though. I'm working on a concept I like to call the "Warriors Four".
Loki: I would have loved to see his take on me.
Doctor Doom: He helped create "Max Steel," so Doom will...admit that he is a "cool guy."
General Thunderbolt Ross: He's a fine writer but personally, I prefer that Peter David fella.
Deadpool: Greg Weisman? Didn't I run trucks with him? No, that guy called himself Edmund...or Eddie...or Ed. No, he is vengeance, he is the night, he is GREG WEISMAN! No, he was sent to Earth from his dying world, and under the yellow Sun he has powers beyond any mortal man. No, wait, does he have radioactive blood? Can he swing from a web? He does whatever a spider can. He's Greg Weisman! No, that's not right. Oh wait! He did that show about those guys with wings that saved people! I liked that show...why did they ever cancel it?
RANDOM OTHER PEOPLE WHO DECIDED TO RESPOND TO ME
Montmarte: I have never heard of this Monsieur Weisman.
Montparnasse: Hmmm...I am not certain...the name seems familiar...
Would you pass me that Case of Self-Indulgence please? I think that it would go perfectly in this soup...
Angelique: I do not know many humans...and the last one I met...a man named Edmund Tsabard...made me very uncomfortable...
Left Bank: *HAPPY BARK*!!!
Diabolique: He is a human.
Thomeheb: I prefer Edmund Tsabard...He just has that...Down home touch that reminds me of Gay Paree!
Count Dracula (from Stoker's "Dracula"): Another mortal author who seeks to disseminate my secrets to the masses.
Maleficent (from "Sleeping Beauty"): I like Walt Disney better.
Dr. Facilier (from "The Princess and the Frog"): Man keeps gettin' the shaft.
Don Karnage (from "Tale Spin"): His cartoons are most amusing to me.
Sarah Williams (from "Labyrinth"): I like some of his stuff, moreso when I was younger. I'm more of a Henson girl though.
Jareth the Goblin King (from "Labyrinth"): A decent storyteller, not quite on par with the mortal Jim Henson.
Buffy Summers (from "Buffy the Vampire Slayer"): I did use to watch W.I.T.C.H. with Dawn.
The Doctor (from "Doctor Who"): Never met him personally, but heard good things. If you think what he's done is impressive, you wait until you see what he's going to do.
Kim Possible (from...well, "Kim Possible"): I loved watching W.I.T.C.H.
Avatar Aang (from "Avatar: The Last Airbender"): I've heard good things about him.
Gwen Tennyson (from "Ben 10"): I liked W.I.T.C.H., especially Will.
Aquaman (from "Batman: Brave and the Bold"): Certain projects shall be seen through or the Brothers Warner and I shall have "words".
Death (from Neil Gaiman's "Sandman"): I loved W.I.T.C.H. Too bad it seems that all the shows he does get cancelled too soon. Gives me a bad feeling about Young Justice; I like Miss Martian on that show.
The Spectacular Spider-Pony (SpecSpidey's Peter Parker crossed with a pony from "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic"): My cutie mark is him and Lauren Faust bro-fisting.
Uh, wow. Some of these go over my head, but...
I'm currently attending college to achieve a degree in English. Problem is, I don't know what to do with it apart from the obvious "get a paycheck". I'm a big fan of your work and was wondering if you had any advice, especially on how to get into the entertainment.
Many thanks for all the fond childhood memories (i.e., "Batman: The Animated Series", "Gargoyles", et. al) and please keep up the great work.
I didn't work on Batman: The Animated Series.
As to "how to get into the entertainment". I'd start by proofreading a little better. (Sorry, the English Teacher in me couldn't resist.)
If your serious about it, you need to be someplace where the entertainment is happening. Learn as much as you can and figure out what EXACTLY you want to do. Then go for it.
Love Young Justice -- the show and the tie-in comic! Thanks for the great work.
Speaking of the comic -- are the latest issues revealing information that was supposed to line up with episodes we haven't seen yet (due to an abandoned airing schedule)? I know they take place during episodes we've already seen, but they seem to fill in important holes. Or are they designed to be read at any time during the show's run?
Another question I'm not sure I'm understanding.
You don't need the comic to enjoy the show. But I think it helps.
Hi Mr. Weisman.
I know that part 1 of the first season of Young Justice is out on DVD, but my question is: Will the whole Season 1 be released in a box set after the season is finished airing?
Thanks for an amazing show so far, and I'm glad to finally see it back on the air.
I don't know.
What sparked Superboy's 'Superman hates me' in episode 11? Did Superman give a behind-the-scenes 'no I don't want them on this mission' for whatever reason and Superboy took it as a rejection?
I really don't know what you're talking about.
1.How tall is robin?
2. Are Wally's parents abusive in this universe?
1. He's the shortest on the Team.
Hey greg I love the young justice series awesome work. But I have a few questions:
1. Does robin have any love interests?
2. Will any characters from teen titans make an appearence?
3. How many seasons will there be? I really hope its more than 2.
Well thank for your time an keep it up
1. I think he has a crush on Zatanna, and he and Barbara are close.
2. You mean beyond those that already have? SPOILER REQUEST. NO COMMENT.
3. I hope so too. It's not up to me.
First off i loved how you wrote terrors and please congradulate nolan and danica i loved thier southern accents
1Do any members of the young justice team have any not superpowered talents like being good at art or acting?
2In future dvd releases will we see any orginal designs for the team that didn't make the cute?
3 what are the teams favorite school subjects?
Thanks for taking the time to read the questions.
2. We don't control what goes on the DVDs.
3. Wally likes science.
I am referencing this recent positive reply - http://www.s8.org/gargoyles/askgreg/search.php?qid=13464 - for my questions about the destination choice for travelers.
1. With regards to humanity is Avalon benevolent, ambivalent, or malevolent?
2. With regards to gargoyles is Avalon benevolent, ambivalent, or malevolent?
3. With regards to the 3rd race is Avalon benevolent, ambivalent, or malevolent?
1. I guess it depends on your point of view on humanity.
2. I guess it depends on your point of view on Gargoyles.
3. Benevolent, on the whole.
So pretty much everybody's secret identity is a bit of a loose concept physical-wise for most characters, but what about Superboy? As Conner Kent, he's more obvious than Clark Kent. He changes his clothes and keeps his powers low-scale but everything else stays the same. He's on a covert team, but surely he'd get some exposure to the media, too? So I guess my question is: what was the reason for Conner Kent's civilian appearance?
Superboy has so far avoided ALL media exposure.
