I know this is a very odd question and I don't know how much you know about the Young Justice art, but a lot of people have noticed that Robin seems to have monkey ears (I find them cute!). But I just wondered if they are purposelly drawn like that or not?
Thanks so much and I want you to know that this is one of the most amazing cartoons I have ever seen in my 15 years of life :p!
The ears are purposely drawn the way they're drawn, but they've never struck me as being particularly monkeyish. And even after you mention it, I still don't really see it.
Does Plastic Man crack you up?
IN Young Justice, has Garth ever been ostracised due to his purple eyes?
Is Kaldur closer to Garth or Roy?
Garth, ultimately. But he's pretty close to Roy too.
1. How did the Rhino overcome his hydration problem?
2. What are the names of Tombstone's bodyguards?
3. Is Tombstone the Big Man or is it someone else entirely?
1. I don't recall, I'm afraid.
2. I don't think we ever gave them names.
3. Tombstone is the Big Man. (Wasn't that obvious?)
Does the Justice League know about Guardian and Red Arrow being uncle and nephew?
At the time of "Agendas", yes.
Hi, Greg. I realize that this is not a discussion forum, so I will try to phrase this as a question. Another poster asked what Wally and Artemis see in each other. I have to admit that is a pretty good question. Personally, I do feel their relationship is credible, but I also think it would be good if it were spelled out a little more. As a guy, I can imagine what Wally sees in Artemis. She's fun to be around! You never know what she's going to say or do next!
As for what Artemis sees in Wally, I'd like to share with you a quote from Woody Allen's Crimes & Misdemeanors:
"You will notice that what we are aiming at when we fall in love is a very strange paradox. The paradox consists of the fact that, when we fall in love, we are seeking to re-find all or some of the people to whom we were attached as children. On the other hand, we ask our beloved to correct all of the wrongs that these early parents or siblings inflicted upon us. So that love contains in it the contradiction: The attempt to return to the past and the attempt to undo the past."
All of this is to say that Wally is about as far removed from Artemis' dad as you can get. (Those of you who read the comic have a pretty good idea who I'm referring to.) Wally is sweet, funny, and kind. I have been told that what women look for in a partner is someone who makes them feel safe, and I can honestly see why Artemis who was emotionally and perhaps physically abused as a child would feel safe with Wally. The irony is that Artemis is the toughest girl in the world and Wally needs her protection at least as much as she needs his.
My questions are:
1) Do you find my analysis plausible, or is too over-wrought?
2) Do you think we will have a better understanding of what exactly Wally and Artemis see in each other after watching season 2?
Bye, Greg. Thanks for a great season.
Well, first I'd like to comment on this: "Another poster asked what Wally and Artemis see in each other. I have to admit that is a pretty good question. Personally, I do feel their relationship is credible, but I also think it would be good if it were spelled out a little more. "
It's interesting to me, because the previous poster (that I believe you were referring to) felt that we were spelling things out too much. Telling instead of showing. Me, I feel like we hit just the right balance, but obviously I'm biased.
1. Anyway, I think your analysis is very interesting, and yes, plausible. And certainly not 'over-wrought'. As Dick would say, it's just wrought enough. (Although I would take issue with the idea "that Artemis is the toughest girl in the world". Certainly, that's how she'd like to come across. But I think she's very insecure in Season One.
2. I would think so, but I've been wrong before.
Dear Greg I am a little confused after watching Young Justice "Agendas" Because The Justice League is discussing who should have the honor of joining the League. What confuses me isn't that how the show started with was the sidekicks slowly be intuduced has members to the league? Or at least part-time members or something like that?
I'm afraid I'm not clear what you're confused about. The teens were not being inducted as Justice League members in episode one. They were simply being granted a few small privileges, like access to the Hall of Justice's gym and library.
1) Sorry about the last question. I found out that Joker and Captain Colds ages were already given.
2) What is the relationship between Wonder Woman and Batman? She seemed upset that he was keeping a secret from the rest of time, and Batman is very secretive.
1. I think the moderators must have deleted it.
2. They are, at minimum, friends and colleagues, who respect each other enough to talk frankly about things they disagree with.
3. Is your name really "Weisman"? If not, I'd prefer you not use it as a screen name. It could lead to a lot of unfortunate confusion.
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.
