I absolutely love Young Justice! !! But I was curious if Artemis is supposed to look asian? Because both Jade and Artemis look American to me.
I don't know what "look American" means. Did you mean "caucasian"?
In any case, Jade and Artemis are both the daughters of a caucasian father and a Caucasian/Vietnamese mix mother.
Hi Greg! It`s me again, Austrias biggest Gargoyles and Rain of the ghosts fan! I`m still hoping for more Comics and/or a continuation of the series.
I am deeply fascinated with the subplot about Demona and Macbeth. They are by far my favorites.
There is one thing I don`t understand. According to Gargoyles Timeline Gruoch was about 27-28 when she had to marry Gilcomghain. Judging by medieval standards she was a very old maid. Why wasn`t she married at "the right age" like 15 or so as it was the custom for a gentle woman?
Why didn`t Macbeth and Gruoch marry years before? They grew up in the same castle, were fond of each other, Macbeth was evidently wealthy and of noble birth so why did`t they just get engaged around the age of 18-22 or so when they were of age? What was the problem?
Best wishes for your current projects! Can`t wait to see "Masque of Bones" (P.S. Any news about its publication yet?)
Historically, what happened, happened. We were only able to guess at the reasons.
So, in universe, Macbeth was without a father and had his inheritance ripped away. (So he was no longer wealthy, and he was virtually homeless.) That gave Gruoch's father pause about allowing Gruoch & Macbeth to marry. Gruoch wouldn't marry anyone else, until Macbeth was convinced by Bodhe to reject her.
And they didn't grow up in the same castle. Bodhe and Gruoch were VISITING the night Findlaech was killed. And that was the first time Macbeth and Gruoch met. They fell in love then and thereafter, but by that time Macbeth was S.O.L.
As for Masque of Bones, I haven't written it yet, because I've been writing World of Warcraft: Traveler novels for Blizzard and Scholastic.

I am not asking for information that is to come on a show...as there is no show anymore.
I come as a Dad--I have a lasso in hand, and the moon in sight...my task: impossible; my course--but to try.
My six year old daughter, on a day when the TV went out, found my (now grown and moved away) son's collection of 'Roughneck: Starship Troopers Chronicles' DVD's. I said if she was interested she could watch them, but warned that the series was canceled before it was finished; so there would be no ending.
Okay, so maybe you can see where this is going, I was aware they had scripted the concluding episodes (my son was always sure they would get made), but I never realized that, after all these years, some transcripted form of the teleplay wasn't readily available on the Internet. Until now.
So...I have a daughter who is only a few weeks out from finishing the produced show, who has that dreamy attachment that I've seen before with Pokémon, and My Little Pony--and, as I continually try to ease her towards the fact that there will be no ending, I have to listen to her reassure me that, "Don't worry, dada, we will just have to read what happens in the ending; no big deal. We'll find the story in a book, or on the Internet." But I've looked, and I haven't found it.
MY QUESTION: Is it out there somewhere...?
Being a Dad is tough, but when you're on the line and you've got your orders, you charge the bugs. Moon or not, my lasso is up and away...live forever, apes!
I sympathize. Honestly. But I don't think I'm going to be able to provide those for you.
The main reason is that I don't own them.
But a secondary reason is that ASK GREG is not a good forum for posting teleplays. The formatting goes to hell, and it takes me a long time to go through them to make them even legible. And they're still badly formatted.
Finally, I don't have them here at my Nickelodeon office. So even if I was so inclined, I don't have them to post.
In summary, the Hawaiian battle continues. There's a big pit. A lot of bugs. Humanity triumphs.
I don't know if you'll ever get around to reading this but i just want you to know that i highly respect your work in animation. Young Justice was amazing and got me through some tough weeks at high school. whenever i was down in the dumps i'd just smash on a episode of the old YJ and it would give me a nice "Homey" feeling. i especially enjoyed the Wally/Artemis spitfire.
I think i type in "Young Justice" into google once a day to see if any news has come up about it, and i try as much as i can to help the show out. buying DVD and following on Facebook etc.
Do you think that WB studios or Cartoon Network studios even mention young justice anymore in their meetings, as to bring it back for season 3. or do you think it's in the past and they are not interested anymore.
it was an amazing 2 years with the show and i try and watch both season at least once a year. thank you very much for the show.
yours sincerely, a humble fan.
I think there's a decent chance of the show coming back. Not a guarantee, mind you, but a solid decent chance. I don't say that lightly either.
In "Rock of Ages" the Stone of Destiny is seen talking to David Xanatos in Leith and King Arthur in the Lantern of the Abbey at the exact same time November 15, 1:06 PM GMT. Then on the next page, the time it's talking to Arthur changes to 1:07 AM GMT, twelve hours earlier. Was the first one a mistake or was it meant to drive home the point that the spirit of destiny can inhabit any vessel, even a supposedly fake one?
I'm looking at the issue now.
It appears there is a typo for Arthur. He should be A.M. on both pages. It's very frustrating that I missed correcting that.
But there were no fake vessels. A rock is a rock. So that is part of the point - not of the error - but of the story.
In Gargoyles, did you have any other Disney characters make any cameos?
Well, there was Donald Duck. And of course, Elisa likes to dress as Disney Princess's on Halloween. She was Belle one year on the show, and Jasmine in the comics.
Nothing else pops to mind.
which person you would like to talk too, for one day what would you talk about with that person?
As frequent readers of this site know, I'm not big on hypotheticals or on lists that rank things. It's just not how my brain works. So picking out my number one hypothetical person to talk to, and then figuring out what we'd talk about is (a) not too interesting to me and (b) incredibly difficult for me to get my head around. Sorry.
I wondered this a while ago but only remembered to ask just now.
Being what seems like one of the few fans who enjoys both Gargoyles and Power Rangers (it's never seemed too contradictory to me to enjoy both a fun, Shakespearean adventure romp and a serialized MST3K movie), it's always felt rather bittersweet that one of my childhood loves contributed to the downfall of another. I can't blame your, heavily implied if not often directly stated, reservations about the show.
But I don't really want to confront you about that as much as I wanted to ask: given the history, it really stuck out to me that Aicaya was directly described in Spirits of Ash and Foam as a "Mighty Morphin' manatee." It's not jarring in the book's isolated context, but does seem odd coming from you. Not bad, exactly, quite the opposite: I thought it was amusing that Opie would adopt something like Power Rangers into his shorthand and was a really fun instance of characterization.
But because I feel like asking questions only I could reasonably care about,
1. Does Opie like Power Rangers, or was his word choice based more on the influence that might come from reading the thoughts of Rain, Charlie, et al.?
2. If he does, what about it do you think appealed to Opie?
3. Was Maq's Batman joke an intentional correlation to Opie's reference, them sharing some shared affection for superheroes as some characterization point, or were they both just coincidental larks?
1. I think it would amuse him.
2. The goofiness.
3. Two separate references.
Hey Greg. First off, thanks for answering my Oberon and Dr. Fate question (And for using a superhero analogy, to).
I just had a few questions regarding magic in Young Justice (Sorry for any spoiler-questions):
1. Do supernatural creatures (Like vampires)exist, or is what we see what we get in regards to magical beings?
2. Do you regard Young Justice's magic as following the same "rules" as Gargoyles's, or did you right it differently?
3. Is magic known to the public or government, or is its knowledge restricted to practitioners and associates?
1. What you see is what you get until or unless you see something more. Which is a fancy way of saying: NO SPOILERS.
2. More or less.
3. Everyone knows about magic. Whether they believe is another story.
I'll try and keep this short, as I'm sure your busy and having things to do, but basically I would like your honest opinion on something. And no, don't worry, it's not about ideas for any of the things you've worked on, nor anything that I or others have written.
Anyway, I'm an aspiring writer who wants to make his own series, and there's an aspect of storytelling that I can't seem to decide on. You see, I have always felt that there are, primarily, two types of villains:
1. The kind who do bad things and don't care
2. The kind who believe that their actions are justified
Summarily, I can't seem to decide which one is worse, as it could really be argued either way. I've asked some friends what they think, and have gotten back different answers.
Admittedly, the self-justifying villain tends to fall under a trope that I have a disliking towards:
Knight Templar - a villain who is convinced that he/she is the hero.
And, after thinking about it, there is at least one thing to appreciate about the "bad and don't care" villains; at least they have no illusions about what they want or what they're doing. Plus, we've seen a lot of the self-justifying villains in recent years, to the point where I think it might be overused. Which is why I think a balance between the two needs to be met, as too much of one can get old fast.
But anyway, I mainly just wanted to ask which type of villain you think is worse; the "bad and don't care" kind, or the self-justifying kind?
I take some issue with the reductive nature of your question. And so I think you're going about things the wrong way. It's not about which is worse. It's about what fits your character. Take, as an obvious example for this website, GARGOYLES.
We have two rather unique and memorable lead villains, DEMONA and XANATOS. I suppose you could reduce Xanatos to your definition of a type one villain. And I suppose you could reduce Demona to your type two. But there are moments when Xanatos thinks what he does is justified, and moments when Demona does a bad thing and just doesn't care. There are also moments when each has done truly heroic things.
The point I'm making is that a great villain is nothing more or less than a great CHARACTER. Write a character with consistency, backed by consistent motivation and history and I don't really care if he or she is type one, type two or type three. (Because, among other things, I doubt that there are truly only two types.)
