Regarding the ending of "Endgame"... Is that the first leave of absence that Dick Grayson has taken from the Team?
Of any significance, yes.
What are Asami's superpowers? I have the hardest time thinking about them. Is it kinetic energy manipulation or wind manipulation or what?
Hey, Greg. I noticed another poster mentioned using YJ for educational purposes. I work as English/ESL teacher. I taught a TOEFL class for a period of time and one of the things I had to do was to introduce my class of Korean teenagers to the concept of an inference. So, I showed them "Infiltrator". "So weak!" and "So stupid!" were one girl's response to Aqualad. (Kaldur does get beat-up quite a bit in this episode.) Anyways, I asked them how Wally and Artemis feel about each other. They drew the conclusion that they don't like each other.
"Oh, really?" I said.
Then, I showed them "Bereft" in which Wally and Artemis meet again for the first time. Then, I showed them how Wally and Artemis's behavior in "Infiltrator" can be construed differently - in other words: it is possible to INFER certain things from their behavior that are not directly stated. Anyways, I think they got the concept of an inference.
More recently, I used "Denial" to demonstrate the hero's journey. Although I did point out that since Wally seems not to have learned anything at the end of the episode that his journey was comic variation of the archetypal hero's journey.
That's all for now.
Okay first: SO COOL!!! That sounds like a very neat lesson.
But second, Wally clearly did learn something by the end of the episode. He just didn't want to admit it to others or to himself.
First of all, Thank you. Young Justice gave me hope that there are still quality "kid's shows" being created. Second, Gargoyles was one of my top five shows as a kid (And I just today learned that you're responsible for both, so thanks for that too).
Now for the main reason I'm questioning you: I've finishing up a Master's degree now and will hopefully be teaching come September. Would it bother you if I made it a goal of mine to use Young Justice in a classroom setting? I feel like the show has so much potential for talking about social justice and frankly teaching analytical skills, prediction, characterization...basically I want to use Young Justice as a teaching tool because it was such a richly created world. And the truth is, I would like your blessing to pursue this goal.
P.S. Your snark, it is amazing.
I actually think Gargoyles might serve your needs better, but YJ would be very cool too.
So you absolutely have my blessing. Keep me posted on how it goes.
1. After Jaime got un-moded but before the finale, did Cassie and Jaime get a chance to really talk? I got the impression they were close from the comics, so I thought Cassie was probably really worried, so I was wondering if they had time to talk that over between the business of missions.
2. Did you ever plan a conversation between Cassie and Jaime that had to get cut? I find it odd that they get a fair amount of time together in the comics, yet don't interact in the show.
3. Was Tim's lack of screentime in comparison to Jaime's the reason that Tim was chosen over Jaime as Cassie's love interest (since Jaime did have "biochemical changes" after all)
4. How long did Cassie have a crush on Tim before getting together with him?
5. Was anyone else (like Dick, Barbara) aware of Cassie or Tim's mutual crush before they became a couple? If so, and you don't mind telling me, who are they?
You rock for this site and everything! Young Justice Forever!
1. In that short window? Not much.
2. Not particularly.
3. I'm sure lots of young men get biochemical changes around Cassie.
4. Some time.
5. I can't imagine Barbara not knowing.
Uhmm, Hi. It's my first time to ask a question so can you please answer this?
What were the spells used by Zatanna in #218/Intervention?
I think they can all be found here: http://youngjustice.wikia.com/wiki/Intervention#Backwards_spells
Chip Coffin and I were having a debate, and I thought you might be able to settle this.
When a spell like the one Demona cast in "City of Stone" is broken, can the spell be used again? In theory, let's say Demona wanted to cast it again, would it work? Would Xanatos need to light the sky on fire again?
In theory… if you still had the pieces to put it all together.
So, I actually have a question about the old SLG comics you did. Was keeping Gargoyles true to it's late 90's setting ever a struggle for you? As in, did you have to make sure you didn't include anything into the story that, while around now (such as, let's just say, an mp3 player), would not have made so much sense for the setting? The other day I was just thinking about how I take it some things for granted like smartphones and mp3 players, even though they are very new things that weren't even around when Gargoyles was.
I hope this made sense, what I was trying to ask.
It wasn't a challenge, probably because I'm such a technological moron myself. It doesn't occur to me to put those kinds of things in.
Another Flash related question I have been pondering for a while now...
1. Why is Flash's (and Kid Flash's) lightning bolt insignia/logo/symbol different from the one in the original comics? In Young Justice it is only one line that switches back, but in the comics it is two (as I'm sure you know, being so knowledgeable in comics and such). I know Bruce Timm did it in the DCAU as well, and it was one of the reasons I had such a hard time (which in the long run I considered fun) finding out and realizing the differences between Flashes. I was just curious. Does it have anything to do with that the logo can't be the same due to copyright? Is it just easier to draw? Was it your preference?
2. Is there more cut material from episodes that you are willing to share?
3. I thought the Arsenal spin-off would have been a great idea! Along with the other items you pitched for Earth-16...here's hoping we'll see some soon!
1. You'd have to ask Phil Bourassa and/or Brandon Vietti. For me, it was just Phil and Brandon saying, "What do you think?" And me going, "Cool." I don't know what their thought processes were.
2. I think I've shared all there is.
3. Me too.
So... Weird question rewatching the Hunt.
How does Tye get sensory input when he is using his big yellow avatar? I ask because he always has his eyes closed. Does he have some kind of sixth sense?
He's connected to the Longshadow.
