For The Spectacular Spider-Man, did you have any specific spin-offs in mind or ideas for other series set in its version of the Marvel Universe, and, if so, what were they?
Well, it was less about spin-offs and more about occasional guest stars. Then if someone (in authority) had said, "HEY, DO THAT!" we would have.
I think I've mentioned we wanted to use Johnny Storm, so that could have led to a theoretical Fantastic Four spin-off.
We wanted to use Beast, Cyclops and Professor X, which could have lead to a theoretical X-Men spin-off.
We wanted to use both Hulk and Captain America, which could have lead to theoretical spin-offs for either and/or for the Avengers.
Oh, and I did have one other spin-off idea that really was a spin-off coming out of Season Three or Four, that would have largely featured characters that had already appeared in the series by that point, including (but not limited to) Flint, Hobie and Felicia.
Absolutely loved Young Justice. And I think your work is awesome! First time asking here.
1. I was looking up Klarion the Witch Boy on the Young Justice Wikipedia and it said that his age was ageless. I compared Klarion's age to Doctor Fate/Nabu's, and it said Nabu's age was eternal. What's the difference?
2. Does their age difference have anything to do with them being opposite species, for instance, are all lords of order's ages eternal, and all lords of chaos ageless?
3. Is either Klarion or Nabu older than the other? If so, which one was born first?
4. What were the other reasons Klarion joined the Light?
5. At what point did he join the Light?
2. You're quibbling over synonyms. I'm not sure how to respond.
1. In Young Justice, what are Superman's religious beliefs? Does he follow Rao, the Abrahamic god, or another Terran/Kryptonian faith?
2. The wiki mentioned Martian reverence of sorcerer priests. Does this mean that magic was/is commonplace in their society?
3. What was first contact like between Earth and Mars?
Thank you for your consideration.
1. I haven't thought about it. He probably conflated Rao in with the Christian Trinity.
2. Not commonplace. But, it clearly exists. Anything beyond that is a spoiler.
3. Ask J'onn J'onzz and Professor Erdel. Beyond that, SPOILER!
I searched the archives and I noticed that Troia's age has repeatedly come up as a spoiler. We know the ages of other members of the Team.
Why is Troia's age a spoiler?
Because you haven't even laid eyes on her.
If you've seen Jaime Reyes, and I confirm his exact age, that's not much of a spoiler, because you could basically guess for yourself and be correct within a year or two.
But with Troia, you don't know if she's ten years old or twenty. And I'm not spoiling that.
Hey Greg, long time fan here, first time asking a question here.
Gargoyles was one of those shows I really enjoy watching with my Mom, and we both enjoy it (as do we love Star Trek: The Next Generation, amusingly enough). I've already pre-ordered Season Two Part Two so we can rewatch the whole show together, but enjoying the comic together is a little tricky (she's not much of a reader).
I had wondered this for a long time anyways, but have there been any considerations (official or otherwise) of doing an audiobook or something akin to it (maybe a voiced motion comic?) for the Gargoyles SLG comic with the original voice cast? I can easily hear their voices in my head, but it would be a whole other experience to have them do it in the modern day.
Thanks for your time Greg, and I hope my asking this isn't a bother. I'll continue to support this series I love, and anything you do (as I always end up enjoying your work)!
I'd love to do those stories as AudioPlays, and the subject has come up on occasion. I wouldn't rule out the possibility, but there are no current plans.
I'm pleased that I can finally announce one of the main things that I've been working on for most of the last year of my life.
In addition to working on Shimmer & Shine AND producing the Rain of the Ghosts AudioPlay (now available for download at www.gumroad.com/RainoftheGhosts), I have been writing a novel for Blizzard and Scholastic based on World of Warcraft. It's called Traveler, and I'm thrilled with how it's turning out.
Check out a little hype on it here:
1) At the end of "Usual Suspects", Vandal Savage takes a Zeta Tube to the Watchtower. The control panel indicated he came from Central City. Was this scripted or was the departure supposed to be from somewhere else and this is likely recycled art since it matches the screen seen back in "Infiltrator" when Wally West goes to the Cave in his beach gear?
For 2-4, I previously tried to ask you on Twitter if these Beast Boy and Wonder Girl biographies on a DC Nation supplement were canon but you viewed it on your phone and the writing wasn't legible. I noticed the profile also shows up in the Young Justice Volume 2 Training Day trade paperback so I took close-up photos. Hopefully, this time you will able to make it out.

Just in case:
The Wonder Girl profile reads "Cassie Sandsmark is the daughter of an archaeologist... and the Greek god Zeus! After Wonder Woman discovered the amazing powers of Cassie's birthright, she granted her new protege the name Wonder Girl."
The Beast Boy profile reads "After a Martian blood transfusion and a green monkey bite, Garfield Logan gained the power to transform into any animal he encounters. Calling himself, Beast Boy, he's morphing right into the Team"
2) I only ask because a lot of these DC Nation profiles for individual characters from Young Justice have been incorrect with certain details in the past. Are these two profiles canon?
3) Is it canon Cassie Sandsmark's father is Zeus and that Wonder Woman was the one who discovered she had super powers?
4) Is it canon that Garfield Logan's powers manifested fully once he received a green monkey bite?
5) For Young Justice: Legacy, Vanessa Marshall once commented she did voice some lines for Black Canary. In the final product, Black Canary had no lines. What were her lines or in general what were they about?
For reference, her tweet: https://twitter.com/vanmarshall/status/432776173114757120
1. I honestly don't recall.
2. Both are correct as far as they go. I don't want to label ANYTHING canon that isn't in the show or the comic or Legacy (and even Legacy has caveats), but these are not incorrect.
3a. Yes. 3b. No one said she discovered them first.
4. I don't want to confirm or deny cause and effect here. That would be a spoiler. But it's true that he was bitten by a green monkey. (Actually, more than once.)
5. I don't remember, and I don't have that information here at my Nickelodeon office.
Did league and the team know that the blood tranfusion was canging Garfield's dna before he get his power?
If you could be any type of tree, what tree would you be and why?
A mystery. So I wouldn't have to change at all.
Hey, I just started watching Young Justice and I absolutely LOVED it. Thank you so much for that. I just have one question.
1. My question regards one of the minor villains named Klarion. If he was the all-powerful lord of chaos, why does he need the light? Couldn't he easily obliterate the Justice League if he's immortal?
Who said a Lord of Chaos is all-powerful? Is Doctor Fate/Nabu, who is a Lord of Order, all-powerful?
Hello, Greg. I'm a huge fan of yours. I'm really interested in animation, and storytelling and writing- and would eventually like to have my own show at some point. And I'm a big fan of superheroes and comics, especially DC ones. So- Young Justice had a huge impact on me. Anyway I wanted to know-
1)What advice do you have for young aspiring writers?
2)What are the people in the industry/companies looking for, when they're hiring?(I would love your insight)
3)What's the first step one needs to take, in order to get into the TV animation field and break through?
4)What sort of educational background is preferred in the industry, or proves helpful/useful in it?
The last question, I wanna know specifically as I think that'll help me determine what I wanna take for my University course. I love storytelling, always have and I would love for you to share your knowledge of the industry, and insights of writing. :)
1. Look through the "WRITING" and "WRITING TIPS" archives here at Ask Greg.
2. Good writers with good sample scripts.
3. Write scripts. Rewrite scripts. Rewrite some more. Get an agent.
4. No one cares. Seriously. Personally, I'm big on education, and I think it'll make you a better writer if you have a strong liberal arts background (even if you majored in the sciences or whatever), but no one looks at a resume and says, "Oh, no, he didn't go to Harvard! We can't hire him!"
Did Jason Todd die before Batgirl join the team?
Having recently purchased Gargoyles Season 2 vol. 2, I just wanted to say I'm very pleased to have the opportunity to revisit the series from beginning to end (and finally "retire" my bootleg copy of these episodes).
I'm nearly through the season 2 vol. 1 set and am really enjoying your intros for each episode and commentary for city of stone. I was disappointed (but not surprised) to see that none of these features exist for the recently released vol. 2 set.
My question is, have you ever considered recording commentaries/intros for this set, (i.e. audio recordings/podcasts) and posting them online for listening alongside viewing?
Your insight and commentary provides so much additional richness to what already is a series rich in depth, lore and multi-layers.
While I doubt you have the time nor inclination to do so, as fan of the series since it aired 20 years ago, I am once again enjoying it (likely even more so now) and look forward to introducing Gargoyles to a new, young generation of future Gargoyle fans.
Thanks and gratitude!
I don't have the technical know-how or capability to do that.
Are the alternate costumes as seen in Young Justice Legacy canon?
In Secrets three freshman attempt to leave the Halloween party, only to be told to go back inside by Marvin. The freashman are dressed as Captain Atom, Aquaman, and Wonder Girl. As seen here
1. Is the Wonder Girl costume a tribute or shout out to Donna Troy?
2. Is that costume what Donna would have worn at some point?
1. That's a Wonder WOMAN costume. Not Wonder Girl.
2. No Spoilers. But no. Donna was never Wonder Girl. She was Troia.
I read in the guidelines to submit different posts involving different subjects, so I have another question, one that isn't as, for lack of better terms, serious as the other!
Throughout the Young Justice series, I was always wondering why you had the Kid Flash and Artemis pairing as opposed to the Kid Flash and Linda Park one. I honestly enjoy the 'Spitfire' pairing more (actually, I LOVE this pairing. I'm going down with this ship, Mr. Weisman xD), so I'm definitely not complaining that Linda wasn't added to the cast. I was just curious as to why you chose to add a Wally and Artemis pairing.
We worked with the group we had. Linda didn't fit our plans.
I have a question: What does John Lasseter think of Gargoyles?
How would I know? Wouldn't it make more sense to ask him?
Quick question that I've been wondering about for a while - were Wonder Girl and Robin friends before they started dating? Based on them being in the background quite a bit together, and M'gann's comment on Wonder Girl "finally getting the courage to kiss him" and all, I just wondered.
Hey Greg! I want to thank you gain for your awesome career. Basically every single show that you have ever worked on in some capacity has been awesome, which is a track record that should get you plenty of work in the future.
My question is sort of a roundabout one. You did a Google hangout talk with a few of the popular YouTube reviewers of Young Justice over the summer, and something came up that piqued my interest. One of the topics was going to be what a potential season 3 might look like, what kinds of storylines that we could expect to see (or want to see). You stopped the discussions before it could start because of legal reasons, so I was wondering what that entails.
Is it the same rule that makes you incapable of reading fanfiction if you wanted? Like, if I or someone else were to ask a question regarding a list of what storylines we wanted to see, would you be incapable of even acknowledging said list? Would you just give a usual response of a spoiler request if you did acknowledge it? Would that list then make you incapable of using any of those storylines if you answered the question? Does it all fall under the same legal umbrella?
(I apologize if that isn't very clear)
Were they asking me what we had planned or TELLING me what they'd like to see? (I can't remember.)
In any case, I always try to discourage folks from telling me their ideas. It does put me at a legal risk, in that if we used an idea - that we came up with on our own - that is in anyway similar to an idea that I was exposed to, that person might decide to sue.
Beyond that... I DON'T TAKE REQUESTS. And I don't give out spoilers.
In Young Justice #15 Ronal creates a fish when battling Ocean Master. During the battle his tattoos, or skin icons are visible. As shown here
Kaldur's tattoos, or skin icons are eels.
What type of tattoos, or skin icons does Ronal have?
I think it's a barracuda, but my memory is not reliable, and I don't have the materials here to double check.
