Thanks for taking the time for our questions! I was just watching "The New Olympians" episode of Gargoyles and as the camera pans the city there is a satellite dish on one of the buildings. I understand if you don't have an answer, but are they receiving signals from our (human's) satellites or do they have one of their own?
I don't recall. Sorry.
While I was watching "Image," my jaw dropped. Over a week later, and I have yet to pick it up off the floor. I'd like to chime in with the other commenters on how well this episode works as a metaphor for being a trans person, and the fears and issues that anyone who is in the closet about their gender, identity, sexuality, etc, has to face and work through. That alone has bumped this episode up to second place on my favorites list. (With Bereft still holding the number one spot!) And has also solidified why M'gann is my favorite character in the series.
I love how M'gann's white martian form looks like an actual alien, and isn't sexualized (or even all that humanoid!) in the slightest. I love that her natural form defies the usual science fiction convention of green skinned space babes, and lacks any female characteristics. While I like the reptilian, xenomorph-ish design in the comics, I'd have to say this version wins out.
How on earth did you and the art team come up with such a great design that doesn't look like it's from earth?
I give full credit to Phil Bourassa and Brandon Vietti on this. I'm just the dopey writer who gets to be impressed by these guys' work all the time.
One more question. In Agendas, Batman said he knew that Captain Marvel was actually a kid. Was that because Billy told him or because Batman investigated Marvel?
The latter. Billy/CM didn't know Batman knew.
Why does Zatara have to be Dr. Fate all of the time? Couldn't Zatara and Nabu come to a time-sharing arrangement? Shouldn't Nabu be able to trust that Zatara would regularly don the helmet of Fate? Zatara has, after all, kept his word to Nabu so far.
SPOILER REQUEST. NO COMMENT.
I fully enjoy each and every episode of YJ, "Agendas" having just aired yesterday.
It did prompt a question or two which I hope do not qualify as spoilers.
1. Given that Batman is "The World's Greatest Detective," and claims he knew about Captain Marvel's secret Identity the whole time (I have no reason to believe he didn't, he is that good after all), Are there other members of the league (or other superheros on the level of the league) who have not shared their secret identity, but Batman already knows their secret. (I am only hoping for a yes or no and would not ask you to provide a list.)
2. From what we saw for the JL's membership procedures, it seems to be almost completely democratic (I hope I did not misinterpret). Each member gets to vote on each issue, each potential member/member under review, etc, even those issues where a member is concerned (IE renewing Dr. Fate and Captain Marvel's membership status). My question is: when Batman was elected as head of the JL, did he vote for himself, or not?
Thank you for taking the time to Answer the questions you do.
1. Yes, Batman knows the secret identities of everyone in the League. They do not all know that he knows.
2. I'm sure he would have. Though I'm not sure there was a formal vote for individual members when it came to the seven founders.
How is Kaldur's relationship with his parents?
Is Kaldur'am a momma's boy?
Is there anyone in Atlantis who crush on Kaldur?
Is Kaldur a ladies' man?
I ask this because he has a lot of female fans.
1. During Season One, quite solid. During Season Two, they're estranged - to protect them.
2. Not particularly.
3. Probably there was, before he (seemingly) betrayed the kingdom.
4. Not particularly.
Oh no! Not only was Superman dna stolen...but by Lex Luthor!!!!! And there is more than one clone! Poor Superman. It is awful when you think about it.People keep giving him a hard time but this was almost like rape.He is by far the victim in all this. I hope this is not used as a plot device for Superboy story but acknowledged and handled sensitively for Superman's sake and the sake on any person who has been violated. And it must be me, but Captain Marvel in the JL disturbs me. He IS a kid in a man's body. I cannot see how Batman can find no issues with it. Are they really going to have him sitting there while they could be discussing things that are not age appropriate? Interesting Batman can just wave his hand at everybody and tell them how right he is and how wrong they are to question him.
I wouldn't say that Batman is doing that at all. Clearly, he'd personally vote to keep Cap in the League. But he's not even advocating that the others agree with him, and I don't know where you get the idea that he's being superior about it. I think that must be baggage you're bringing to the scene, cuz there's nothing there to justify what you're suggesting in the actual episode.
Since, by this time, we know Cap stayed with the League, a majority must have voted for him to stay.
Hi! Just saw Agendas, great episode! Loved our first glimpse at the Watchtower.
Did Luthor say "Red SUN" at the end...or "Red SON"?
What powers does Captain MArvel Have? are they his usual s.h.a.z.a.m. ones? Also, will Captain Atom ever get any speaking lines, or is he mostly a background charater and/or can't talk? If he does have future lines, who is his voice actor?
1. Basic SHAZAM powers, yeah.
2. By now, you've hopefully seen that Michael T. Weiss is the voice of Captain Atom.
1.Why was Miss Martian disguised as Black Canary when she was making out with Superboy?
2.Is Superboy ever going to be able to fly and use heat vision without the use of those shields?
1. It's a game on Mars. Role playing can be fun.
2. No. We like him at 1938 level powers.
