I have to say I was quite disappointed with the season 2 finale and season 2 in general. I thought season 1 was outstanding. But season 2 was far too up and down to be particularly good. Also, I must say, as a major Wally fan I was extremely disappointed. You gave us so little of the character throughout season 2 and when you brought him back, you promptly killed him off. And that too because of the fact that he was too slow. Its almost as if you were saying that the character wasn't a good enough Flash and so you removed him from the show. Worst, we didn't even see the team members grieve. Not even some of his oldest friends. I thought it was poorly handled. A character like Wally deserved better. So what was the point of it? I know you say that you don't follow the new 52 but this seemed like you were trying to get to the new 52 Flash and Kid Flash with Barry and Bart. In my heart I hope that there would be a possibility of a Wally return because I find it hard to believe that Artemis, Wally's parents, and Barry would ever be able to move on from Wally's death. Anyways, even beside that I felt the finale was rushed. Black Beetle was defeated too easily for someone who was shown to be so powerful throughout the season. And his plot for destroying the earth came out of nowhere. I think a two episode finale would have handled both the Wally death and the final threat in a better manner.
Rant aside, I would like to like to congratulate you for your two seasons on this show. This is the only animated show that I have watched from the first episode to its current last episode live. Hopefully, somewhere down the line you will be able to make a season 3. If not, I hope you can share details on what you planned for season 3 because I know YJ buffs would love to know what you had in mind.
I don't think we ever even implied that Wally/Kid Flash wasn't good enough. QUITE the reverse. Nightwing doesn't have super-strength, but that doesn't make him any less of a hero than Superboy. In fact, one could argue it makes him MORE of a hero. So the fact that Kid Flash isn't as fast as Barry or Bart hardly makes him any less the hero.
Having said that, if you didn't like the season or the season finale, then I'm sorry about that. You wanted a two-part finale, but where would that second part have come from? Which episode would you cut for that? (Maybe you could name one, but not one that Brandon and I would agree to cut.)
There's no doubt that we'd have ALL liked more screen time for the finale, for Wally, for grieving, for everything. But we did the best we could with what we had. And I don't have any regrets. Wouldn't do anything different.
So, now that you released the double ups, I'm very curious. At the end of season two are Zatanna and Barbara friends? Or are they just tolerant of each other?
The "double ups"?
How is it possible that Impulse is still present in the 2016 timeline? he time-travelled to achieve an objective (i.e. stop the reach apocalypse) and with that objective achieved there wouldn't have been a reason for him to time-travel in the first place, thereby creating a paradox which would have erased impulse from the 2016 time line and placed him back in his own 'altered' timeline (where the reach apocalypse was prevented). Time travelling gives me a headache :(
Me too sometimes. But this is basically ASKED AND ANSWERED already. Check the archives under Young Justice Invasion or Time Travel.
Batgirl and Aqualad joined in the justice league?
Hi Greg, I was wondering, was the apocalyptic setting shown in the final moments of "Bloodlines" (when Nathaniel Tryon was saying, "The mode should have crashed, should have all crashed...") averted?
The so-called Reach Apocalypse was averted.
First of all thanks for giving us such a great and unique DC series after such a long time. Even though I was devastated by the finale, there is no doubt YJ was a great series and I really hope you get to make more of it(and hopefully Wally West gets to return from the dead). Actually YJ got me back into reading comics and watching cartoons after quite a along time and thanks for that.
Anyway I would like to ask you a different question. Do you have any plans of reusing the spitfire pairing in any of your foreseeable future projects. I hope you do because growing up Wally was my favorite dc character but his relation with Linda never intrigued me(plus it was the reporter superhero combo once again). The spitfire pairing was rather unique and I think the fans really loved it. I really hope you get to use it again given that the DC higher ups gets over their current Wallyphoebia.
Anyway best of luck for all your future endeavors.
It's not up to me. I don't control the DC characters. Be happy to, though.
First off thank you for having brought such an amazing series to life. After having endured the aftermath of Endgame, I believe there's still a question on everyone's mind, if matter can't be created nor destroyed then how was it there were no ashes left after Wally "ceased"? Also the scarabs words used were "ceased" instead of say dead, why? Finally as you've mentioned before there is no speed-force in Earth-16, so could there be other parallel Earth's?
ASKED AND ANSWERED.
Hi again! Sorry for annoying you with my questions but I just remembered the ones I've been meaning to ask/find for a while now.
1) When exactly did Red Arrow and Jade get married?
2) What happened to the real Jim Harper? Did her die or just hasn't been found yet?
1. SPOILER REQUEST. NO COMMENT.
2. Which real Jim Harper?
First of all, a big thank you for making this show. Outside of the Batmanverse, I have always ignored the other mainline DC comics like Superman and Flash. This show has introduced me to the entire DC Multiverse. And I'm heartbroken that it got cancelled when you were about to delve into one of the most intriguing events of the DC World. Hoping for a return to this world in animated form, either as a TV series or as a Movie series.
I would like to get some clarity on some points.
1.Did Luthor admit to being the member of the Light on camera in front of an UN member? Given the information obtained by Kaldur, won't that make him look like a traitor to the Earth?
2.With Guy Gardner(my favourite GL!)finally getting some airtime again, I would like to know who is the assigned GL of the Earth sector and what are the designations of the other two in the Corps?
3.Why was Jay not included in the final race to stop the 21st MFD?
And finally, I see the rationale behind why Wally had to be the one to *die*, and while Wally's absence in the major portion of the season did dampen it a little, I wholly support it. But actually, who took the call to *kill* Wally in the planning stages for this episode?
1. Luthor didn't "admit" to anything. He deflected. Watch the scene again.
2. I'm not sure what you mean by "designations". And I'm not going to get into the rules of the Universe-16 GLC, as that would be a SPOILER REQUEST for something specific we have planned.
3. ASKED AND ANSWERED.
4. "took the call"?
Just saw the stuff cut for time for Endgame.
So many potential plot and content in there! It's fun to read. and a pity we cannot see them on the screen.
Is there stuff cut for every Episode? I guess yes, the time is too limited and the plot is just too many to handle.
So, would it be possible to post the stuff cut of every episode in Greg's Ramblings? Like one week for one episode? it would be interesting to see them and review the episode again.
Not every episode, no. In fact, not for most of them. I think I've posted all the significant cuts here already.
