So we know that Miss Martian came to Earth by stowing away on Martian Manhunter's ship. But there's one thing that I am unsure about.
1. Did she have her parents' permission to leave them to stay with her uncle or did she run away from them for that purpose?
1. She ran away without telling anyone. After J'onn discovered her, he contacted her parents, and they agreed that M'gann could stay on Earth.
Is the character Sha Shan Nguyen based on any pre-existing character in the Spiderman comics?
Yes. She's based on the character Sha Shan, who was Flash's girlfriend for awhile - and then wanted to kill him - and then didn't, and then dumped him cold when he cheated on her - and then pretty much disappeared until I brought her back in an issue of Amazing Spider-Man as his physical therapist. And then... um, I don't think she's appeared since.
Anyway, she was always a favorite of mine. And I always thought that she was THE ONE for Flash.
How would you nominate the Reach's speech pattern? Why do they say "gratitude" and "appologies" instead of "thank you" and "sorry"? It reminds me of Spartacus. What kind of speech pattern is that? Regal?
Anyway, it reminds me of Spartacus too. Probably because I more or less ripped Spartacus off, cuz I thought it was cool.
But in theory, they're just translating their speech patterns from their native language.
Do you remember what the first superhero comic you ever read was?
Nope. It'd be cool if I could though.
Why couldn't Miss Martian remember she could phase through doors in Before the Dawn?
It's not that she couldn't remember. It's that, in general, she was in shock. And she couldn't focus on anything.
Here's hoping you're in a sharing mood. From your timeline, you have revealed the following vague events that line up with a Gathering date and a character played by one of the special guests:
July 19, 1997: Goliath makes a bargain.
August 14, 1998: Vinnie visits family.
June 25, 1999: Lexington goes into business.
June 22, 2001: A crisis brings together representatives of four clans.
June 28, 2002: Vinnie's quest begins.
June 27, 2003: Lexington holds a press conference.
August 6, 2004: Goliath is briefly forced into hiding.
July 29, 2005: Lexington takes a chance and loses.
June 23, 2006: Obsidiana comes to the United States of America.
June 22, 2007: Lexington continues his journey.
We're still missing Gatherings 2000, 2008, and 2009. Any chance that you're in the mood to give us the last three?
August 3, 2000 - Lexington faces an extremely hostile takeover.
June 27, 2008 - Eggs are stolen from the Manhattan rookery.
August 21, 2009 - Thailog attacks.
How old is detective Jim Daniels?
By the end of Season One, Detective Daniels was 34.
In the comic it showed Captain Atom lecturing the team, does he or nightwing still do that with the new recruits?
Cap's been a bit busy recently, but the general policy is training from the top down. If it's stuff that the senior members of the Team can handle, they do. But specialists are still specialists, and Cap has espionage experience that I'm sure he'd still be willing to pass down.
Soo I loved #23! (And I'm totally buying that T-shirt btw) I just had one question about what Batman said to Robin in the issue: "We exist to stand up where and when others can't or won't-not to consider ourselves matchless" ...I don't quite understand what that's supposed to mean...and judging by the art Tim looked annoyed at that but I could be misreading the facial expression. Thanks!
I think you're misreading the expression.
Anyway, Batman means that he and Robin do NOT exist out of some misguided belief that no one else is capable of doing the job.
There are certain characters that were created specifically for Teen Titans. If you wanted to, could you bring those characters into YJ, or are they not up for grabs? Just curious, because I'd love to see your take on characters like Kyd Wykydd and the like. I thought you might be able to, since you sort of adapted TT's Cheshire mask, but I know that's a pretty different situation, as Cheshire's been around much longer than the Teen Titans show. Anyway, let me say that I really appreciate how you read your fans' questions, and I hope you're able to answer mine.
I assume we have access to everything, unless I'm told otherwise.
