It's interesting that you went with Sergeant Marvel for Mary instead of Mary Marvel, and likewise with Lieutenant Marvel for Captain Marvel Jr. In Mary's case, was this change made to protect her secret identity? I know that Artemis had no qualms with going by her own name, but with Mary we're talking about a kid who's six years younger than Artemis... So maybe it was thought best to go the extra mile not to announce her name to villains, especially since she wouldn't have been wearing a mask (if the Young Justice Mary takes after Earth-16 Captain Marvel and/or her comic book counterpart in not wearing a mask)?
It has nothing to do with secret identity and everything to do with internal consistency.
I recently got Spirits of Ash and Foam and ALL of the Gargoyles DVDs. All of it was perfection. Thank you for being awesome.
While combing through the archives, I discovered the names of some of the gargoyles of the Avalon Clan: Archangel, Azrael, Michael, Raphael, and Uriel. What I could not find was a reference as to what name went with which gargoyle. So my question is this: are any of the names assigned to a particular garg from Avalon? Or were these just names chosen without a face?
PS. It hits me now that I'm proofreading that it sounds like I'm trying to get on your good side before I asked my question. Not my intent. But whatever.
But I'm glad you liked the stuff, especially Spirits.
Did Miss Martian not know how Marie die before she read Garfield's mine in episode Earthlings?
1. What/Who were the aliens from "Failsafe"? Their ships bare resemblance to M'gann's bio-ship, though I doubt they were Martians.
CAUTION: This is a question for Greg Vietti.
2. What is Grany Smith's recipe from episode 17 of "Hello Megan!"?
3. Why was Hello Megan! cancelled?
4. Why did Artemis, M'gann and Kaldur cut their hair before Team year 5?
5. Can Kaldur close his gills so he seems human?
1. J'onn made them up, interpolating things from many sources.
2. You'll have to ask Brandon Weisman.
3. Mediocre ratings.
4. Artemis for practicality. M'gann for a change of pace. Kaldur - I'm thinking he wanted to look badass.
5. You've seen them closed. They're still visible if his neck is bare.
Well it's been nearly a year (I think more) since YJ stopped airing. I recently just re-watched the entire series except for the last two episodes mainly because I really despise the feeling that after those two it'll be over again and all that there is to do is watch from the beginning.
Not really a question, just wanted to let you know that even with two seasons it was amazing (ik you've written that the show just isn't picked up and not cancelled)
What country did Kraven and Calypso live in before they came to New York?
I don't remember.
I just wanted to say thanks so much for taking your time to give me some writing advice at Magic City Comic Con and that I really enjoyed the Batman Writer's panel. Just started Rain of the Ghosts! Best wishes,
Thanks! Let me know what you think!
Did Superboy ever know that he was Artemis' "White Rabbit" and do they ever have some sort of friendship because I noticed in the show that they hardly spoken to one another.
In fact can you just define the whole Team's friendship/relationships to each other. Especially Rocket I wanted more airtime for her and see her with the Team.
Besides that I love your show! I wish it would come on again.
P.S. I'm starting to get addicted to Gargoyles.
Conner and Artemis are definitely friends. I wouldn't say they're the closest on the Team, but that should not be mistaken as distanced.
I doubt, however, that she revealed the whole White Rabbit thing. Unless maybe it came up after she and Wally were firmly locked in as a couple.
But, no, I'm not going to create some kind of relationship chart that lays out how every character feels about every other character. Mostly, I think that can be left to your imagination.
Since Conner does not like monkey. How did Conner fell about Garfield start using that half monkey form?
Not a question, so I apologize.
I recently purchased Gargoyles Season 2 Volume 2 from Amazon and all I can say is "thank you" to your former crew and cast for these episodes...for this series.
My family contains many different races; most predominant are Piscataway Native American and African American. To see my family…to see ME represented in animation was more than just enjoyable. It felt like a statement that we mattered…that we were worth watching as fictional characters…that we were more than just a series of catch phrases and racial quotas.
And as for the Gargoyles themselves…well…my parents and grandparents would tell me stories of their lives pre-civil rights movement and it was horrifying to hear that just because they may have been good people, did not mean others would still not vilify and dehumanize them. And, although you exhibited racial injustice in your program, you did not take the easy way out and show that all the characters were unaffected by this. You displayed that some characters harbored deep resentment, others carried life-long suspicion and the rest, had an ever-present optimism.
I watched the series on their original airdates as a tween and honestly thought it would lose some emotional impact as a thirty-something, but it definitely has not. So, again, thank you. Some may dismiss your work as just another silly cartoon, but you are showing kids across the country that just because someone does not look like you, does not mean that he or she does not have the same dreams, aspirations and desires for love like you.
Wow. Thank YOU! This really made my day. We strove on Gargoyles to do all the things you cite above. I'm glad we succeeded.
Hi Mr. Weisman.
1) How do you feel about fans putting names to the pairings?
2) Usually pairing names are a mix of the two characters' names. But Spitfire (Wally / Artemis) and Chalant (Dick / Zatanna) aren't, what do you think about that?
Thank you for your time
1. I'm fine with it.
2. I'm fine with it.
