Hey Greg, I watched the episode "Secrets" and I wanted to know why Robin had that look on his face at the end of the scene? Was he frustrated or is that a wait-and-see thing?
I think he was disturbed.
I've got important questions I need ask you about the Young Justice version of Superboy, as well as other Superman-related topics. I apologize in advance if any of your guidelines are broken or if spoiler alerts are triggered.
The first question is a three-parter. How did you determine which powers Superboy were allowed to have during this first season? Why were his remaining powers left out to remain inaccessible to him? With the nature of Superboy starting with fewer powers instead of getting all of his powers at once, was your decision to make this move for the character inspired by watching The CW network show "Smallville"?
The second question is a two-part question about the powers Superboy does not have yet. In your opinion, do you and your team have a basic idea about which order these inaccessible powers will appear? Also, do you also have an idea about the type of situations Superboy has to be in so he will be able to trigger these powers?
The third question is about Superboy's clothing/costume. In your opinion, have you and your team considered the possibility of giving Superboy changes in his costume in future seasons in the show? There is a very specific reason I am asking. Based on what I have seen thus far, my assumption is that your team's character development for Superboy seems to parallel to that of Clark Kent/Superman as interpreted in "Smallville," especially since that show established the strict rule of "No tights, no flight." Can we safely assume that as future seasons of Young Justice go by, Superboy will be undergoing several costume changes similar to that of Clark Kent/Superman of "Smallville"?
The fourth question is about the location Smallville in the Young Justice universe. In the episode, "Failsafe" the location had a brief cameo as part of the mental simulation. In your opinion, will we be able to see the actual Smallville on the show, as well as its well-known residents (the Kents, Lana Lang, Pete Ross, etc)?
The fifth question is about the Fortress of Solitude. The only appearance of the fortress was the front door with the House of El symbol (Was that really a door? There's no keyhole). If the Fortress of Solitude appears again, will we see it in better detail (both inside and outside)? What exactly is the Young Justice version of the Fortress of Solitude based on (from other Superman-related shows to be exact)?
Thank you for taking the time to read my questions. I hope to hear your responses soon!
1a. We based it on what we believed a super boy could do: enhanced strength, vision, hearing, endurance, etc. But none of Superman's more fantastic powers, such as flight or heat-vision or even X-Ray vision. And no super-cold-breath EVER.
1b. Didn't seem realistic for the way we were interpreting the character.
1c. I can't speak for Brandon, but I'd say we were way more influenced by Superman's original 1938 power level.
2a. SPOILER REQUEST. NO COMMENT.
2b. SPOILER REQUEST. NO COMMENT.
3. I'm not all that familiar with Smallville. I only saw a handful of episodes, but I thought Clark just wore normal clothes in that show. I didn't think he had 'costumes'. As to what our Superboy will be wearing: SPOILER REQUEST. NO COMMENT.
4. SPOILER REQUEST. NO COMMENT.
5. SPOILER REQUEST. NO COMMENT.
1: How old was Secret when she died?
2: Is Miss Martian really the Martian Manhunter's niece?
3: Will we ever see Wonder Woman talk?
4: Will we see Rose Wilson on the show?

For the GargWiki's timeline, I was wondering if you would share the dates and descriptions from your timeline of the events from #10, #11, ans #12 of "Gargoyles."
Time-Dancing Brooklyn arrives and immediately encounters King Constantine, MaÃl Brigti, Gillecomgain and Brother Valmont. He rescues Mary and Finella (and the Grimorum Arcanorum) from villagers, who believe the two women are witches. He gains a sword in the process. Maol Chalvim, Findlaech, Kenneth III (a.k.a. The Grim) and Bodhe discuss how to topple Constantine, perhaps by allying with gargoyles. Constantine and Gillecomgain destroy a cell of gargoyles at Sruighlea, and Demona finds the rubble. (âThe Gateâ) Brooklyn, Mary and Finella journey to Wyvern but are unable to acquire Goliathâs piece of the Phoenix Gate. Constantine shaves his head. Demona tells her cell of gargoyles, including Second, Sacrifice, Brooksbro, Schnozz, Kermit, True, Chomp and Chaw about the dead Sruighlea gargoyles. Brooklyn, Mary and Finella make contact with Grim, and Brooklyn tracks down Demona to get her help. (âTyrantsâ)
Hunterâs Moon, 997
All combatants and their armies converge at Rathveramoen. Valmont takes the Grimorum. (âTyrantsâ) Valmont uses the Grimorum to rain arrows from heaven. Sacrifice, MaÃl Brigti and the old nag Magus are killed. Demona ends the spell. Brooklyn returns the Grimorum to Finella. Constantine III is killed at age @26 at the Battle of Rathveramoen by the popular Kenneth III (Katharineâs cousin, the son of Duff). The Phoenix returns and Brooklyn, Finella and Mary leave this time period with the Grimorum. (âPhoenixâ)
Saturday, January 10th, 1997
Brooklyn is accidentally sent dancing through time by the Phoenix that was inside the Phoenix Gate. (âThe Gateâ) He returns to the present mere seconds after he departed. But for him, forty years have passed, and he has not come back alone. Brooklyn brings along his mate Katana, their son Nashville, the gargoyle beast Fu-Dog and an unhatched gargoyle egg, nicknamed Egwardo. (âPhoenixâ)
So if Superboy has a birthday (er...release-from-pod day) of July 4th, what are the rest of the Team's birthdays?
That's not Superboy's birthday, even as he counts it.
Some of the birthdays of the Team are SPOILER REQUESTS. Others I just haven't needed to figure out yet.
I have a few questions for you regarding Young Justice
Are you able to post the air-dates for the remaining Young Justice episodes, if so what are they?
Also what is the age of Captain Cold?
Lastly, about episode 18, Secrets and the sword of Beowulf, which sword specifically was it? I ask this because as far as I can remember the magical-crafted by giants sword he used to kill Grendel's mother melted away (or something to that effect) and he was left only with the hilt. Then again there is artistic license, but I just wanted to be sure.
Thank you for your time,
1. Episode 119 airs on March 3, 2012 as part of DC NATION. That's all I know for sure, but I'm hopeful they at least finish out the first season on consecutive weeks and then launch right into Season Two.
3. Honestly, I should know this, but it's just been too long since I read Beowulf to remember.
1) Are Beast Boy, Bat-Mite, Mirror Master, the Crime Syndicate of Amerika, Erica Alexandra del Potenza, Deathstroke the Terminator, Rose Wilson, Wintergreen, Calvin Durham, Sha'lain'a, Deadshot, Ubu, Talia, Deadman, Dr. Mid-Nite, Atom-Smasher, Hourman II, Starman II, Stargirl, Sand, Etrigan the Demon/Jason Blood and Wonder Girl the next characters to appear?
2) Is Paula Crock re-married to Paul Kirk, Jr.?
3) How old is Klarion?
4) How old is Joar Mahkent?
5) How old is Zatanna?
6) How old is Barbara Gordon?
and 7) How many years did Joar spent prison?
1. Sha'lain'a and Calvin Durham will appear in issue #14 of the comic. Ubu's already appeared (in issues 11 and 12). The rest are all SPOILER REQUESTS. NO COMMENT.
2. She's not married.
3. ASKED AND ANSWERED.
4. ASKED AND ANSWERED.
5. ASKED AND ANSWERED LIKE FIFTY TIMES, DUDE!
6. ASKED AND ANSWERED.
7. I haven't done that math.
Why was Miss Martian still green in that restaurant in issue 10 of young justice? Why was she a martian in public? She did not disguise herself. And no one thought it was weird.
ASKED AND ANSWERED.
Hi Greg, big fan of your work, and i think Spectacular Spiderman and Young Justice are some of the finest superhero shows ever made. I have 2 questions regarding the light if you would indulge me. I know if its too spoilerish, that you won't say, and i understand that. Still, any kind of clue that you can give would satisfy me ^^
1) Was the light created by L-1 aka Vandal Savage? If you cant say, could at least say if it was one of member (you don't have to tell me which ^^) that did? Or if it was a coincidence? Or a series of events that lead to their evil unions? To me at least, Savage seems to be in charge, whether officially the leader or not. So i'm thinking he might have recruited the other 6, as they definitively come from such diverse backgrounds and styles. Which by the way, is that what i love about the group. That diversity and the possibilities they have as a team, which i think you showcased very well with the Injustice League too. To quote Count Vertigo: "stunning, what our little teamwork can accomplish."
2) Was the decision to give Vandal Savage his face scars, a nod to your Gargoyle fans (if so, VERY cool), or is there more behind it? A plot twist or maybe just some cool backstory? Either way, it's a nice touch.
1. I like to think it began with a conversation between old friends Savage and al Ghul. I have no idea what you mean by "a coincidence". Like the seven of them happened to walk into the same super-villain hide-out on the same day?
2. Cave bear. (And, no, it has nothing to do with Gargoyles. It was Phil Bourassa's idea.)
1. I was wondering if Young Justice is going to turn into, for lack of a better word, a love fest. It seems all of the members are getting paired up? (While I'm shipping for a pairing I know you won't make canon, I still find it a bit irritating to see a show about super powered teenagers in love, it's been done before and that's not what I was expecting from the show)
2. I was also wondering if there might be other episodes similar to Downtime but involving other characters? I'd love to explore their backgrounds a bit more.
1. I can't address your expectations. The show is the show. And the show is about teenagers. And teenagers have a lot of hormones. I'm sorry if that's not your thing, but we feel it's honest.
2. SPOILER REQUEST. NO COMMENT.
