'Humanity' was phenomenal!
I know you've written a few Young Justice episodes so far, do you have characters you particularly (emphasis on particularly) enjoy writing for (ex. Dialogue)? Or ones you find difficult to write for?
I can honestly say after two seasons that there's no one I dislike writing for.
And I don't generally have favorites, cuz they're all great and fun to write for.
But I have to admit that there's one character who is particularly a gas to write. He's introduced in the first episode of Season Two, so I'm not going to say whom it is now. But if you ask me again after 201 has aired, I'll let you know.
In "Cloud Fathers", Xanatos makes his famous quip to Goliath and Angela about how his acid trap that will spill over them and the Coyote Carving is "my first real stab at cliched villainy".
Recently, I realized that in Xanatos' next appearance in "Gargoyles", "Future Tense" (if that one counts, since the Xanatos in that episode was a deception twice over), he displayed a *lot* of cliched villainy (openly taking over New York, turning most of the population into Mutates, planning world domination, etc.). I don't know if that line in "Cloud Fathers" was intended as a foreshadowing, but it became all the more fun after I thought of it in connection with "Future Tense".
If it's fun... then we all win!
Young Justice is my current obsession! (It feeds my inner comic geek. :)) I can't wait for more episodes!
1.) I believe you've confirmed that Beast Boy will be appearing in Young Justice. Can you disclose his age?
2.) How old is KIller Frost?
3.) How old is Edward Nygma?
4.) In Robin's profile on Cartoon Network they call him "Immature". This confuses me slightly; he's certainly mischievous, but on the other hand he is, arguably, the most intelligent, has the most experience, gets along well with adults, even Batman (Mr. Know it All) respects his opinion. So, is he dubbed "immature" because of his rather impish nature? Or something else I've failed notice?
1. I've confirmed nothing of the sort.
4. I won't take responsibility for promotional materials.
Although I DID write the bios on the back of the Mattel Young Justice Action Figures!!
Love the show. Brilliant writing, plot/character development, animation - probably the number one animated show on TV right now in my opinion.
I also really appreciate that you've made the characters very realistic and relatable - love that you're not ignoring their sexuality and are exploring what that means for the team (i.e. Miss Martian and Superboy). Such a fundamental part of growing up and I always get annoyed when other animated shows pretend that teenagers don't have to deal with those issues. Artemis' line in Humanity about feeling naked and not in a fun way cracked me up. Definitely fit her character (and age) - really glad S&P didn't ask you guys to chuck that one.
On a different note, if Young Justice ended up staying on air for many, many seasons (10, 20, or you know, forever - you have some very dedicated fans, let's make it happen) do you think you'd ever consider exploring what these characters would be like when they finally branch out on their own (i.e. Robin becoming Nightwing, etc...)? Or do you think that would take away from the fundamental aspect(s) of Young Justice? Basically, I'm just curious what kind of reality you see this show existing in. Is it something a la Family Guy/Simpsons (where none of the characters ever really age) or (given enough air time) would we eventually see their pre-established evolution (or any variance you came up with)?
Sorry for the ramble. Thanks for your time and for creating such a kick-butt show!
Time will pass on the series realistically, with characters aging appropriately. BUT...
Keep in mind that the entire first season takes place over a single six month period. (Despite the fact that it will take way longer than that to air.) And Season Two likewise takes place over a six month period.
Timestamps can be used to track how much time has passed in the world of the series. But obviously, you aren't going to see our characters age significantly between, say episode 118 and 119.
Love the work you're doing on Young Justice so far. Really enjoying the detail the animators are putting into the animation (i.e persistent mud on heroes) and your usage of macguffin plot items to damn good effect (Helmet of Fate in Revelations). Seriously, kudos to you for having the heroes actually use the gamebreaking artefact they have stored away in their trophy room. Heaven knows there're enough shows in circulation now which wouldn't dare do the same.
Was the recent reference by Red Volcano to "Meatbags" a HK-47 Star Wars reference or simply a general anti-human robot thing?
I don't know what HK-47 is, so I'm guesing no.
I've seen and enjoyed Star Wars and Empire Strikes Back many times. I probably saw Return of the Jedi twice, maybe three times. I've seen Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones once each. I never did get around to seeing Revenge of the Sith.
Is there any possibility and/or talk of a Young Justice live action movie? (If this has already been asked, I apologize - I searched the archives and did not get any hits.)
Possibility? I suppose. I mean, anything's possible, right? Talk? None that I'm aware of, unless this counts.
How old is Rocket? (Awesome Cameo, BTW. Gotta love the Dakota-verse)
1.) How old is Wendy Harris?
2.) How old is Marvin White?
3.) How old is Karen Beecher?
4.) How old is Snapper Carr?
Love Young Justice!
1. Are the following alias' and real names accurate for Earth-16?:
Wildcat - Ted Grant
Sandman - Wesley Dodds
Green Lantern - Alan Scott
2. How old is Topo and what exactly is his species?
Thanks so much!
2. Topo is thirteen, and he's an Atlantean. For more on that and him, see issues #14 and 15 of the Young Justice companion comic.
Me and my friends have been having gargoyles marathon and I was wondering why the DVDs stop after season 2 volume 1 I mean, I couldn't even purchase a digital file. This is very grievous because I now only own 1 episode with an appearance from Puck, you can see how this is depressing.
I can indeed. But the answer to your question is stated and restated ad nauseum in the ASK GREG ARCHIVES in the "Gargoyles DVD" section. Check there.
