I've always been a big fan of Babylonian Mythology so I got a big kick out of all the references in Young Justice Legacy, Marduk, Tiamat, the Tablet of Destiny ect...
1) On Earth-16, is Nabu also the Babylonian God of Wisdom of the same name?
2) If so, what was his relationship to Marduk?
1. I'd have to do more research to answer that. (You clearly know more about the Babylonian pantheon than I do.)
2. See the answer to Question 1.
Hi Greg. I've got a question about Spec Spidey.
In a few different responses, you've acknowledged that your Eddie Brock is partly an original creation, with some influence from the Ultimate version. You've said that the show's Eddie Brock is "a little more revisionist" compared to the adaptations of other characters, and when asked if you like Venom, you've said that you "like [Spec Spidey's] Venom."
I find the great difference in the show's Venom is the complete posing of him as a dark mirror to Peter/Spider-Man - as you've put it, Venom has a "dark reaction to the [same] tragedies that Peter faced." Spec Spidey's characterization of Eddie Brock/Venom was the first time Venom worked for me.
Naturally I'm very curious about the show's Venom, as the characterization was unprecedented in some ways. So here comes my question, and I don't mean to ask for spoilers here: Do you see Eddie as a redemptive figure? By that, I'm not hoping to learn whether or not Eddie would have gotten some kind of happy ending. I just wonder if your vision of Eddie is a vision of someone who could have been saved from the darkness. If you'd prefer leaving that to interpretation, that's cool, of course.
Mostly, I'll leave it to your interpretation, but the short answer is that, yes, redemption is at least possible. Doesn't mean it'll happen.
1. Does Gotham Academy have a football team?
2. What are they called?
3. Does Keystone High School have a football team?
4. What are they called?
5. What are Keystone High School's school colors?
2. I feel like we did come up with the mascot name, but I honestly cannot remember.
3. I'm sure they do.
4. I don't think we ever came up with that.
5. No memory of this at all, which may mean we didn't come up with this either.
Wow. I was going to preface this with other questions, but upon searching the unanswered queue, all of the other questions had been asked, one by myself. So, I'm just gonna dive in.
2. Would you please, please, oh great and powerful and wise man (sorry for the terrible pun (wise man, Weisman)) tell us one, some or all of the owners of designations 27, 28, A06, A07, A08, and A09?
... Yeah, I didn't think you would. Thanks anyway. Can't wait to read Spirits of Ash and Foam!
Honestly, I don't remember. And I don't have my YJ files here at Nickelodeon. And, in any case, if I haven't already revealed this, I'm unlikely to now.
But I hope by now, you've read and enjoyed Spirits of Ash and Foam!
At the Blue Mug Convergence 2014 Panel, you have stated that Mac and Demona had lots of sex while they were engaged. Didn't you previously state that "Dominique" had presented herself as a good catholic french girl, presumably to avoid having sex with him?
One of the two was a mistake, you changed your mind, or what?
(By the way, I must admit that, if you did change your mind, I liked the original version more.)
All things are true. Few things are accurate.
Or put another way, don't take a Blue Mug TOO seriously.
I think the original answer is better too.
At CONvergence, you mentioned that you have a written list of things to keep in mind while writing scenes for Rain of the Ghosts: what music Rain is hearing, what's the light source, what's the weather, etc. Would you mind posting the complete list?
The "Cheat Sheet" for Rain of the Ghosts wound up being about 27 pages long, by the time I was done.
In contrast, the "Cheat Sheet" for the third novel in the series, "Masque of Bones" is already 98 pages long, and I've barely scratched the surface in terms of research and planning.
I don't have the Cheat Sheet for Spirits of Ash and Foam handy, but I have a vague memory it was about 180+ pages.
Anyway, I'm not going to post a 27 page document here. But I will cut and paste the first page, which (in extra large font) I kept right in front of me to keep things in mind as I wrote:
What all characters look like:
--Hair length, style and color.
--eye color, eye shape?
--Build, height, weight. Etc.
--CLOTHES -- LOCAL COLOR t-shirt
--Weather or PENDING weather. MOON status.

Why were Artemis and M'gann so much more effective in hurting Black Beetle in any manner in Summit than Wonder Girl and Superboy who both have super strength in Before the Dawn when all they did was hit him with a sword a few times?
Honestly, I'd have to watch the episodes again. But I'm not sure they were effective. They just had more experience by that time and knew how to keep him at bay more effectively.
What year did Aquagirl join the team?
So from a strictly nerd stance, does spidey in your show rely on spider sense to web swing? I ask this because your spider sense abilities were so clearly defined.
I'm not sure I know what you mean by "rely". I'm sure it helps.
Was there ever a Wind Ceremony for the gargoyles at Castle Wyvern?
If you mean the gargoyles massacred there by Hakon, then, no. Sad, right?
