Did Demona remember, when she saw the Magus, Katharine, and Tom taking the eggs out of the rookery, that she had laid one of those eggs?
Of course. But she also regarded ALL of those eggs as her rookery children. She could not have singled out the one egg she personally laid from all the others if she tried.
Why are you so awesome?
What's your secret?
1. I'm not. I just play someone awesome on podcasts and at conventions.
Thank you for answering questions, I really appreciate it.
I loved EVERYTHING about Young Justice.
But I have 2 questions:
1. Did Dick Grayson date Raquel after or before she gave birth to Amistad?
2. How old was Raquel when she got pregnant?

This question's been bugging me for years. How did norman osborn survive at the end of 'final curtain'? I'd hate for that cliffhanger to be left unresolved!
Does the HOW really matter? If it does, make something up. That's all I'd be doing. Cuz the how doesn't really interest me too much.
In any case, I'm not sure what the how has to do with resolving the "cliffhanger". And that's on top of the fact THAT THERE WAS NO CLIFFHANGER.
It's become one of my pet peeves, but the definition of a cliffhanger has been stretched beyond recognition to include any plot thread left unresolved or any little mystery left unexplained. But that is NOT the meaning of cliffhanger.
At the end of Season Two of The Spectacular Spider-Man, no hero was left in jeopardy so there was no cliffhanger. Period.
But again, I don't see how knowing how he survived would resolve anything about the threads we intentionally left hanging. The one thing has nothing at all to do with the other.
Would you be able and willing to post your script for the pilot of Roswell Conspiracies? Every now and then, I give the bible a read and marvel at what a great show we missed out on. I'd understand if not, but given the years that've passed and the fact the full bible's still on the site, it seemed worth asking about.
Um... I'd have to think about it. I often use it as a writing sample, which is neither an argument for or against posting it.
We did it as a RadioPlay at one of the Gatherings once, which again isn't an argument pro or con.
In any case, I don't have it here at my Nickelodeon office. But I'll give it serious thought.
What was the full roster of the All-Star Squadron?
Dear Mr. Weisman I have a question about the Awakening episodes. Did you and your team want the audience to figure out Xanatos and Demona were the bad guys before Goliath found out? In the third part there is a scene where Xanatos says that everything is going just as planned which gives it away. And in the fourth episode there is that extreme close up on Demona's face when she and Goliath meet again and she smiles like a villain. If you did not wish for the audience to figure it out then why were these shots not cut? You could have kept the pretense going until the fifth part.
Obviously, we wanted to let the audience know something was up, without letting them know exactly what.
I know W.I.T.C.H must feel like forever ago for you now, but I want to say I really loved watching that show over and over again. It's really wonderful. I especially loved the whole Elyon story.
That being said, do you ever think W.I.T.C.H will see the light of day with a nice dvd release? Maybe you could nudge someone at Disney with a nice email asking about your other (less known) baby?
I don't know. It'd be great. I no longer even have a contact at Disney Home Entertainment, I'm afraid. But fans can make requests as easily as I can.
Hi, Greg, hope the tour's going well. Hope you have fun!
I've got a question about gargoyle eggs and customs. Does rookery parentage apply to every gargoyle in a generation of the right age to reproduce? For example, would Iago/Coldsteel be considered one of Angela's rookery fathers despite the fact that he never mated or had any involvement with producing eggs?
To some extent, it's up to the individual. One doesn't have to be a biological parent within an appropriate generation to participate in the raising of hatchlings. (It takes a clan, afterall.) But if one in essence opts out of the responsibility, that's considered a bit odd, but allowed.

I saw you at Denver Comic Con on June 13-15 this year, and would like to thank you for answering the questions I asked you concerning Spectacular Spider-Man. I didn't go to your Gargoyles panel, since I hadn't seen the show for ages, but have recently gotten into it. Hopefully you and the crew will be back for the 21st anniversary ;).
Anyhow, after searching the archives, I saw you comment that you didn't want to give your opinion on Spider-Man 3, because you were working with Sony. However, since you are not working with Sony, would you be willing to let us know what you think of the Sam Raimi Spider-man films, both as Spider-Man adaptations and as films on their own? I noticed that in Spectacular Spider-Man there were many references and homages to Spider-man 1, 2, & 3.
Your opinion on the reboot series would also be appreciated, although I haven't seen Amazing Spider-Man 2 due to the bad reviews and being unimpressed by Amazing Spider-Man 1. Plus I'm disappointed that Sony is trying to copy Marvel by making an expanded universe with a Sinister Six and Black Cat movie instead of focusing on Spidey.
There was tons to admire in Spider-Man 1 and 2. They got a lot right, as far as I'm concerned and even improved things here and there. I didn't love every single creative decision made, but they were both thumbs up movies to me.
I wasn't as enamored of Spider-Man 3.
I was okay with Amazing Spider-Man, but I thought it was a mistake to do his origin over yet again and so soon.
I haven't seen Amazing Spider-Man 2.
What are your thoughts about JJ Abrams taking over the Mission Impossible film series since Number 3?
I have no thoughts. I haven't seen those films.

2. No Spoilers.
3. No Spoilers.
4. There hasn't been any impetus to change it up to this point.

Sensing a trend?
I mean, seriously, if you've read Ask Greg at all in the last decade, you had to have known I wouldn't answer these.
In the Mirror Episode, When the humans (including Elisa Maza) turned into gargoyles, did that include Elisa's Family Xanotos, Fox, the cops, and the parents of Xanotos and fox? Or is it just the minor characters and Elisa?
Everyone on the island.
1. Would Lieutenant Marvel's costume have been a blue version of Captain Marvel's?

1. No Spoilers.
2. I'm not confirming or denying that Shazam exists.
I loved season 1 of Young Justice, and was looking forward to watching season 2, until I saw that Artemis and Wally, my two favorite characters, lived together in season 2.
I hope I don't come across as rude, I'm not trying to be. I'm concerned and curious.
1.Why did you have Wally and Artemis live together in season 2 of Young Justice? (I didn't expect something like that in a PG-rated superhero cartoon, that attracts a young audience.).
I am honestly concerned. Kids shouldn't be shown this as something to be handled lightly. Scientific studies have confirmed that cohabitation is not a good idea, it has negative affects on a couple's relationship, and on society. Young kids are not experienced or aware of the consequences of some actions. They learn and distinguish what is right and wrong from what they see others do(And, who doesn't look up to superheroes?).
2. When you decided to make this a part of the story, did you consider the affect it could have on young kids?
3. Are you concerned about the influence it has on them?
1. Okay, I'm going to start by challenging your statement that "Scientific studies have confirmed that cohabitation is not a good idea, it has negative affects on a couple's relationship, and on society." I don't believe that for a second.
This is anecdotal and happily reveals my own bias, but I "cohabited" with my current wife for years before we got married, and I don't think it harmed our relationship, our eventual marriage, our children (or any one's children) or (for God's sake) society. So, if that makes me biased, fine. But we've been together since 1988 and happily married since 1991, and I resent the hell out of anyone who tries to tell me that was a mistake.
But beyond my own personal experience, I truly don't believe that scientific studies have demonstrated what you claim. My guess is that if you actually have read those studies - and I'm not sure I believe that either, because it's an easy thing to say to justify pre-existing opinions - then I'd lay odds that when I looked at who performed and/or commissioned those studies that I'd find a CLEAR bias in one or both of them. And/or that the studies you're referring to are so ancient that the bias was pre-existing.
As for us handling Wally and Artemis' cohabitation lightly, I don't think we did that at all. For starters, all you KNOW is that they were sharing an apartment as many college students do. You have no idea how many bedrooms that apartment had. Personally, I think it was a two bedroom apartment and they each had their own bedroom. And there's nothing in the show that would indicate anything else. All you ever saw was the living room/kitchen. If you're also saying that college age boys and girls can't share housing, I'd respond by saying there's hardly a university in this country that agrees with that assessment.
Now, I'm not trying to be coy. I ALSO think they had sexual relations. (Though that's merely my interpretation; your mileage may vary.) But I don't think there's anything wrong with that either. This was clearly a committed relationship. They'd been a couple for five years. They had a dog together. Long term, I believe the clear plan was to marry and have kids.
So I'm absolutely 100% fine with viewing Wally and Artemis as roll models in this scenario. If you don't agree, that's okay too. Don't let your kids watch the show.
3. Sure. But I think it's a positive influence.
Question 1 What did Garfied do at the cave and happy harbor before he got his power? Question 2 the members of the team take Garfield on missions after before offically join the team ather he got his power?
1. I'm not going to confirm or deny that he did anything at the cave before getting his power.
2. You're making a lot of assumptions here. In any case, the basic answer to your questions is probably just NO SPOILERS, anyway.
You have stated that to do Dr. Fate's voice Kevin Michel Richardson (the voice of Nabu) and whomever is playing the host (Jason Spisak/Kid Flash, Khary Payton/Aqualad, Lacey Chabert/Zatanna, or Nolan North/Zatara) are recorded saying the same lines. Then in post production, the voices are double-tracked, so the audience hears two voices.
1. What is the process step by step in order to be able to double-track?
2. Is double-tracking something that requires a studio in order to be able to do or could it be done from a smart phone?
1. Um, it's pretty much what you listed above. It didn't really matter who we recorded first, so that was based on scheduling. If Kevin was in the recording booth first, we'd record Nabu first. If the host body actor was there first, we'd record him or her first. If they were both there, it was sort of Voice Director's choice. We then played the take from whomever recorded first for the second actor, who attempted to match the basic cadence and tempo. But we consciously chose NOT to have the second actor try to match the first exactly. We like those moments when they aren't perfectly aligned. Then during my attended edit of the dialogue, we'd lay those tracks over each other for storyboarding and animation purposes. (It helps that the Helmet of Fate doesn't reveal any lip movements, that might cause confusion between which track to animate.) Finally, in post-production, specifically at the mix session, we'd mix the tracks so that you can hear at least a taste of both flavors.
2. Uh... I don't know enough about smartphones to answer that question. I wouldn't know how to record one track on my smartphone, let alone two, let alone know whether or not I could double track 'em onto a single track.
Hello I have a few questions.
1. Has wonder girls birthday pass yet in young justice invasion making her 15? I know you stated before the second season on December 31st (2015) she was 14 which would mean that she would be aging another year 2016 making her going on 15.
2. Is tim drake the same age as wonder girl, making him also going on 15, and if so when?
3. What grade is wonder girl in? 9th going to 10th or already 10th?
1. I haven't set a specific birthDATE for her as yet. And I'm afraid my memory isn't sufficient to even confirm what you've written here, since I don't have my YJ timeline here at my Nick office.
2. Ditto. But I believe they are the same basic age.
3. Haven't thought about it.

I can't give a blanket confirmation that everything on it at any given moment is correct, but generally it gets things right.
