I got a question.

Show: Young Justice
Episode: Endgame

During the final episodes Black Bettle mentioned that the light distracted him to abandon his post at war world's key chamber.

Question: Given how easily Savage and Klarion defeated Captain Marvel+ Black Canary+ black lighting, was Black Bettle really a concern for the light?

Thank you Greg.

Greg responds...

Short answer: Yes.

Minus the unique capabilities of Jaime and Scarab's unique "teamwork," Black Beetle had proven to be otherwise unstoppable. The one time he seemed to be defeated, in "True Colors," was a fake-out to embed Green Beetle with the Team.

is there still any hope that Spectacular Spider-man could return as a tv show/comic book or movie or is 100% dead?

Greg responds...

I'd never say 100%, but unlike Young Justice, I don't see a path for the return of Spectacular. But I hope I'm wrong.

Hey Greg, in the Young Justice DC Universe, is there an in-universe explanation as to why the humanoid form is a very prevalent anatomical structure in many known sentient alien races? From the Rannians to Kryptonians, Thanagarians, The Reach, Kroloteans, Kylstar, Maxima, and the New Gods. Even the Tribune of Rimbor and Despero's build suggest humanoid appearance.
I hope I don't come off as critical of the show's character designs. Obviously animators and designers can only do so much in artistic license (it'd be a very tedious process to sort through the plethora of different xenobiology suggestions only to animate them for a few minutes). As well as the fact that these alien species have already been designed from the comic source material.
But I'm mainly asking if there happens to be an in-universe speculation/explanation to this humanoid build being common amongst alien species.

Greg responds...

Convergent Evolution.

So the big news:

YOUNG JUSTICE is coming back for a third season! Yes, that's right! Warner Bros. announced it today! It's official. Here are some links to some articles on the subject:


Not too much more to tell. I start back at Warner Bros. on Monday, 11/14/16. Brandon Vietti and I, of course, had plans for Season Three way back when. Now, we'll get the chance to make those plans a reality!!

It's so crash!

Paxton writes...

Was there any actors you considered for Young Justice or any actors that auditioned for main roles that didn't get it?

Greg responds...

You want me to embarrass actors who didn't get cast?

No thanks.

Chris writes...

Hey Greg, big fan of your work and I recently got the Kanan Volume 2 trade and I was wondering what actors do you think best suite the characters in that comic?

Gamut Key

I'd be really interested to reread the two volumes with proper voices in my head.

Greg responds...

I used to do this, but I had to stop. It occurred to me that if I ever had the chance to cast the roles, and if I wound up - for WHATEVER reason - with someone different than the choices I posted here, it would seem like the choices I did get were SECOND choices. That's not fair to those actors.

I do a live radio show here in St. Louis that focuses on pop culture in general and comics, TV shows, movies and video games in particular. I would love to have you on-air with us as a guest sometime. How would I go about making that happen? Thank you!!

Greg responds...

James and I did this interview at the end of September.

I've always wondered, in Young Justice is Plastic Man able to speak, or do his powers leave him mute like Beast Boy's? I love that you don't have Mr. Tawney, Grodd, Wolf, or the Ultra-Humanite speak, by the way!

Greg responds...

Plastic Man can speak. If you've read our companion (in-continuity) comics, you've seen him speak. Ultra-Humanite speaks too, through an electronic box, much like the Brain. Grodd speaks telepathically in the comics. (And hasn't yet appeared in the series.) Tawney and Wolf cannot speak.

Hi there I hope you're well. I am a huge fan of your work and what you do.

I write for a website based in the UK, JumpCutUK.com . I am wondering if you have 15 minutes
for a Skype call or text interview to talk about your work.

I really hope to hear from you.

Kind Regards

Luke Riley

Greg responds...

Hey Luke,
