1. Assuming Nightwing's acrobatic abilities are the same in this as they are in the comics, is he capable of the Quadruple sommersault?
2. Has Superboy developed anymore Kryptonian powers, or is he still limited by his human DNA?
3. Who is faster, Impulse or Kid Flash?
1. I don't know. But I wouldn't assume anything of the sort.
2. What you see is what you get.
3. Impulse. (Haven't we CLEARLY established this - even back when you posted this question?)
Does Wonder Woman's Lasso have its truth powers in your version? I'm guessing Wonder Girl's doesn't have its Zeus' lightning powers or she would have used it by now...?
1. Honestly, I haven't decided. I'm leaning toward a version of it. You can't lie when tied up by it, but you can't be compelled to tell the truth either - or compelled to do anything. And, of course, lying isn't the same as being wrong. So untruths can be told, if the teller believes them.
2. No lightning powers.
I was wondering if you read Hellboy at all? It just occurred to me recently that the use of folklore and mythology in the series is kind of in the same vein as Gargoyles!
I've read some Hellboy and seen both movies. I see some overlap, though we did Gargoyles long before I read any Hellboy.
If you were given the opportunity to write a comic based on one of the young heroes that you have used, who would it be?
I'm writing a comic. It's called Young Justice. Check it our.
To start, I want to let you know that YJ is currently my favorite show, and I can't wait to see it each week.
My question is about Kyle Rayner. I remember hearing that in the past on multiple DC shows, certain characters (notably Nightwing in JLU and Donna Troy/Wonder Girl in almost ANYTHING) were off limits due to licensing issues (or something to that effect, I was never great at the legalese). I also noted that Kyle Rayner's only appearances as a Green Lantern were in Superman: TAS (where they made him into Hal Jordan with a different name) and briefly in JLU (where he had very little characterization). In many other shows and movies based off DC lore, when Kyle is supposed to be the Green Lantern in question (Justice League: Doom), or at the very least, could exist as one, he is passed over, more frequently than any of the other Lanterns in 2814. Is this a licensing issue, or is it something else entirely? From what I've read, Kyle isn't an unpopular character.
It is not - as far as I know - a legal issue. No one has told me he's off limits. But I can't speak for what the situation was on past series.
I have some questios regarding Lex Luthor.
Do you think he would get along with Xanatos?
Is He as smart as Xanatos?
Would David Xanatos be a member of the light if he lived in earth 16?
I know it is never going happen becuase one is from DC and one is from Disney/Marvel. But I would love to see the two of them interacting.
How would you do an episode with Lex and Xanatos?.(I don't consider this one a spoiler or an original idea becuase copyright will never allow this to ever happen).
2. See, now, the Hulk is more powerful because the madder he gets, the stronger he gets. But the Thing can still beat him if he keeps his wits about him.
3. I'm not interested in those kind of hypotheticals.
4. I wouldn't.
Hello Greg I just wanted to apologize for my superman complaining and ask some questions regarding him.
As a fan I am a bit tired of writers using him just to make batman look cool.I think he is a great character, that few people are actually able to write well (many writers complain that he is too powerful).
When I saw him treating superboy as a brother. I regretted every word I said. You gave is a flawed yet true to the character that is Superman.
On to my questions!
1.-Do you think it is possible to write a superman show as great as past batman shows have been?
2.-Have you considered a superman show?
3.- How has superman survived against lex Luthor. I know superman is the super powered one... But he is too nice and naive while Lex is perhaps as smart as Xanatos.
Thank you for your time!
2. Not specifically, since I don't own Superman, it's not up to me. But I'd be game to try.
3. Observe for yourself.
Hi the awesome job with the show.
My favorite new character is wonder girl!. I would like to ask about wonder girl's powers and origin.
I think you have hinted that she isn't an amazon.
In the show Wonder woman said that she "would tell her mother" and you said that her religion was Christianity with a "new found respect on pagan"
1.-was she ever a normal human or is she an amazon?
2.-How did she gained her powers? (genetics?)
1. Depends what you mean by 'normal', I guess - but the short answer is NEITHER.
2. SPOILER REQUEST. NO COMMENT.
When the Magus handed over the Grimorum to Mary and Finella after casting the "teleport to Avalon" spell, why didn't he tear out and destroy the page with the teleportation spell? He had seen Hakon tear out and destroy another of the Grimorum's pages, so he knew that it could be done; and it would prevent Constantine from pursuing them to Avalon even if he did obtain the Grimorum.
The book was so holy to him, I don't think the thought occured. I mean, why not destroy the entire thing? It just wasn't the way he was trained.
What spell was cast by Zatanna in "Satisfaction"?
Brag su rof elttab!
Aside from Batman, does Dick Grayson idolize a particular hero?
I think he likes them all, but might be particularly impressed with Superman and Black Canary.
On another post you said that the pentagram's symbols in "Misplaced" had been inspired by My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. Was that a joke or were you being serious? None of the cuttie marks resemble any of those symbols.
If you were kidding, then where did you base those symbols on?
I was kidding.
And I have no idea what - if ANYTHING - the symbols were based on.
Why is Batman the only one who cares so strongly about his and Robin's secret identities? I mean, why were Kid Flash and Speedy allowed to tell everyone their names but not Dick?
Flash doesn't feel as strongly about it.
Mr. Greg Weisman,
In the Season One finale, Superman had told Superboy of his own secret identity as Clark Kent. When Superboy reacted to this revelation, was his reaction based mostly towards the fact because he now realized that they shared the same last name in the episode, or mostly towards the fact because Conner had met Clark Kent in Young Justice issue #20 (as indicated by the flashbacks) and not realizing at the time that Clark was actually Superman?
Hi Greg, I just saw the newest episode of Young Justice,of March since comic wise one of Dick Grayson's birthdays is listed as March 21 or the first day of Spring. Was this intentional or not? It's pretty funny since Wally got November 11, and now Conner has March 21. Was this just another coincidence or what?
Thank you a good episode, can't wait for the next one. :)
I'm sorry, I don't really understand what you're asking. Was what a coincidence?
Mostly, March 21st was chosen as Conner's 'birthday' because (a) the timing made sense vis-a-vis what we already know, and (b) it's my son Benny's birthday.
Back again! Hopefully you didn't have to go through all the lists that were ahead of me when I posted this, but if you did I pray for your sanity. Anyways, thanks for the answers you gave me last time. Here's a few more questions:
1) I love how you've fleshed out the Martians in this universe (Hope to see some Red Martians in the comic or on the show), but I wanted a clarification on their weakness: Is their weakness to fire purely based around heat, or is it more of an innate psychological fear of fire?
2) In "Earthlings", it's mentioned that the word "Krolotean" might as well mean "thief", indicating they are basically a race of criminals. So are Kroloteans supposed to be GOOD at what they do (tech thievery, infiltration, etc), or are they sort of a bargain basement criminal enterprise? Just wondering if the Light took the lowest bidder when it came to planning an alien invasion.
3) We know Earth has three Green Lanterns, but traditionally there are only two per sector. Are there different rules for the YJ Green Lantern Corps, or is one of them part of the Green Lantern Honor Guard (Elite Lanterns who are not bound by individual sectors)? If the latter, is it Guy Gardner? If not, WHY is he not when he is obviously superior to the others?
4) Conner is now attending Ivy University, judging by "Satisfaction". What's his major and is Ivy Town as crazy as it is in the comics? Oh, and nice job sneaking in "The Mysteries of Udolpho" in a second time.
5) I know that the production team was always planning on a 5-year timeskip. Was the idea of doing this inspired by the Legion of Superheroes' "5 Years Later" skip, or is that complete coincidence?
Thanks again for your time!
2. They have their skills.
3. The rules are slightly different in Milky Way-16.
4. History, I'd think.
4a. Ivy Town's no crazier than anywhere on Earth-16.
5. Coincidence - if it even rises to the level of coincidence.
Can you explain how Wally is Bart's first cousin once removed? Thank you :)
Wally is first cousin to Bart's father.
Does Red Arrow have the same fingerprints as the original Roy Harper/Arsenal?
I would think so, but I have to admit, I don't know for certain how fingerprints are formed.
Concerning the titles of the next two episodes in Young Justice Invasion ("Darkest" and "Before the Dawn"), I was wondering if they were a reference to the song Shake It Out by Florence and the Machine or if that was just a pure coincidence?
"It's always darkest before the dawn." is a very old phrase that pre-dates both our series and the birth of Florence or the Machine.
Do Miss Martian's Green siblings get looked down on or discriminated against for having a White father even though they aren't White themselves?
1. In season 2 of young justice, is the hologram of the dead Robin in episode 8 satisfaction, Jason Todd or a brand new robin invented for the show based on Jason?
2. When the original Roy Harper fired a Rocket Launcher at a building, was that a reference to Batman: Under the Red Hood?
3. Was it always planned from season one of young justice to have two Roy Harpers, each of them becoming or about to become in original Roys case, one of the two identities, Red Arrow and Arsenal?
1. Jason Todd.
2. Hmm. Not consciously...
Hello once again, Mr. Weisman.
I've read in the archives that, for the Gargoyles comics, you mentally cast actors for characters who didn't appear/speak in the original series, as well as imagining the voices of the original actors for pre-existing characters. Do you do the same for the Young Justice comics?
Thank you for taking the time to answer my question.
Why did Nightwing say, "We're crash" in Bloodlines?
He was quoting Impulse.
According to one of your earlier answers, Wonder Woman is 90 years old as of Invasion. How exactly is she so long lived? Is it an Amazon thing, do they only age to a certain point?
They don't age on Themyscira.
I would love to say thank you for providing us with shows like young justice and spectacular spiderman with all the twists and turns in the story line.
For spectacular spiderman, i was fooled that harry was the green goblin when it actually norman. Just when i thought i had the Green Goblin so played out (making the harry seem so obvious) and yet so deviated (making it Harry instead of the traditional Norman), I was wrong.
I loved how the show kept with the original story of the Green Goblin AND found a surprising and original way to tell it. That's what i call killing 2 birds with stone.
Same goes for young justice, how Red Arrow accuses Miss martian, Artemis and Superboy of being the mole when it was Roy. I admit myself i thought it would be artemis which roy was suspicious and when i found out he was the mole, i thought to myself hypocrite but when i found out he was a clone and a sleeper agent?! Oh my....
I love surprises like these keep it up!
