BOOTH A31 10:00am - 02:30pm
PANEL: TRIPLE DC ANNIVERSARY: FLASH, BATMAN & WONDER WOMAN 02:30pm - 03:15pm. ROOM 2.
Description: 2016 is a landmark year for three key comics characters. 75 years ago, WONDER WOMAN debuted in 1941, establishing herself as the first important female superhero! 60 years ago, in 1956, the modern FLASH first appeared, starting not only his own career, but ushering in what has come to be known as "The Silver Age of Comics!" And in 1966, 50 years ago, the BATMAN "camp" TV series debuted (starring Adam West and Burt Ward), marking what is seen as both a high and low point in the history of the character! Comics and animation writer/producer Greg Weisman (Young Justice; The Batman) and comics historian Danny Fingeroth (Superman on the Couch; Disguised as Clark Kent) take you on a slideshow-guided tour of the histories of the heroes and the highlights of their careers in comics, on TV and in the movies! Join the celebration! .
Hope to see you there!
Hello, Mr Weisman.
I was playing Lego Batman 3, and one of the story lines was based on the Blue Lantern planet Odym. During this story, the Blue Lanterns were being attacked by The Reach.
I made a connection to Young Justice Invasion, and wondered, did you get the idea of The Reach from the game? An enemy that you were interested in? Or a different reason all together? (if that is the case, could you specify?)
Thank you for your time :)
We got the idea for the Reach from Blue Beetle comic books, after DC's Mike Carlin suggested them.
Hello, Mr. Weisman. Hope this post finds you happy and well. I love and admire all your work (Gargoyles was a huge part of my childhood and still inspires me to this day).
My question is related to Young Justice:
Would you or have you ever considered doing episode rambles on Young Justice one day?
Thank you for your time (:
It's been brought up before. But I don't seem to have the time these days. But someday, maybe...
May I say that your shows are amazing Mr. Greg :) My best friend got introduced to all of them :)
And my question is that in your book series would you like it to be something in the lines of a comic book?
I'd be happy to adapt it to a comic book. But first and foremost it's a series of novels. And an AudioPlay.
1. Assuming you were able to, would you write an episode (or a comic issue) of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic if you were asked?
2. Would you also be a part of the creative team for the show if asked (again, assuming you were able to)? I'd like to think the show would be better with your input.
1. Probably. I'm not particularly familiar with the property. But a paycheck is a paycheck.
2. Sure. Though I somehow doubt they need me.
On Jan. 6th, 2014 you stated that originally you had planned to show a scene where we see a "BLANK" body-suit adapt to match the person it was replacing. But there just wasn't the page space when it came down to scripting the issue.
What episode did you intend this scene to be in?
I don't even know what property you're referring to. It's been two and a half years since that "statement," and it was already one and a half years when you posted your question. Context would have helped.
Oh, wait. I'm guessing you're talking about the Krolotean body-suits. In which case, I would have put it in the companion comic, I think (if I recall correctly) in issue #25. We would have seen Noor Harjavti and Bibbo Bibbowsky duplicated by blank body-suits operated by Kroloteans.
1. As of Endgame who is aware that Megan fried Kaldur's brain?
2. Is the Krolotean Megan interrogates in Alienated in a catatonic state when she finishes?
3. If so, did Martian Manhunter realize this?
1. At minimum, Miss Martian, Aqualad, Superboy, Tigress, Nightwing, Vandal Savage, Psimon, Black Manta, Deathstroke, Cheshire, Sportsmaster, Queen Bee, Ra's al Ghul, Brain, Lex Luthor, the Ambassador and various Manta Troopers.
2. Pretty much.
3. Not immediately.
1. Who is Black Lighting closest to in the Justice League?
2. Who initially nominated Black Lightning for League membership?
1. No Spoilers.
2. No Spoilers.
I was a huge fan of Young Justice when it was on air, and would even manage to wake up for it on Saturdays (Specifically for season 2) despite being a college student who loved to sleep in.
I especially loved Wally's character, and felt that he was the best character (With Robin/Nightwing being not too far behind with his constant prefix questioning)
My question is, which do you think caused the most people to react to Wally's sacrifice at the end of Season 2? The attachment to this specific Wally that you guys built up over two seasons, the fact that your Wally was the only remaining Wally in media at the time (As it would be a while before he was added back into comics), or the end of the show meaning that we might not know if he could ever return.
And heck, I'll add in another question. What was the inspiration for Dick's obsession with prefixes, and why he chose to use the non-prefixed words? Specifically Whelmed because that was always my favorite.
1. I can't speak for the fans. It sounds like all three of your suggestions played a role.
2. As I've stated many times before, Robin's "unwords" were inspired by actual conversations I had with my kids.
This might be a totally silly thing to ask, but it occurred to me today and has been bothering me...
If Nabu refuses to let Zatara remove the helmet of fate because he's afraid that neither Zatara nor anyone else would put it back on again, then how in the world does Zatara eat? There's no way to access his mouth with that helmet on 24/7. Does the host of Nabu no longer need to eat? And I'm not trying to be facetious, I'm 100% serious with this question. Like, in season two, Zatara has been Doctor Fate for over five years. Surely he's eaten something in that time? Or is his body sustained through magical means? Thanks for taking the time to answer all these questions!
Is Zatara still Doctor Fate in Season Two? What's your evidence for this?
In any case, I'm sure magic is useful for eating, bathing, etc.
