Huge Fan of YJ.
1. Now that Red Arrow has his issues (Speedy) resolved, will he and Cheshire patch thing up?
2. Does Sportsmaster know that Red Arrow is his son-in-law and if so what's his opinion on their relationship?
3. What does Sportsmaster think about his granddaughter Lian? Would his relationship with her be similar or different than how he treats his daughters?
1. No spoilers.
2. I think you can assume he knows Red Arrow fathered his granddaughter. As for his reaction/opinion, unless or until we address it, I'll leave that to your imagination.
3. See the answer to #2.
This is going to sound like an odd question. What New York congressional district would the Manhattan Clan live in??? I know this is an odd question but I was just wondering. After having done research on it, I still don't have the answer. Thank you
Well, I guess it depends if you were talking about the Clock Tower or the Eyrie Building.
Or maybe it doesn't. I'd have to do research, and I haven't.
What is the limit of constructs that a scarab's armor can generate? Is is as far as imagination can go, vis-à-vis a GL Power ring?
In Young Justice how long has Megan Morse been Garfield Logon's guardian?
How different was writing Young Justice: Legacy compared to writing for animation/comics?
I didn't write YJL. I made suggestions on the story, a few course corrections and edited the dialogue.
Hi, Mr. Weisman. Fan of YJ. Hope we get a 3th season one day.
1. Has Batman ever hit any of his protégés?
2. Who trained Sportsmaster?
3. Was Jason Todd a natural redhead?
1. He's trained with them. So if you're counting them sparring together, than I guess so. But he's never hit one in anger or been abusive.
3. I'm not giving out any info on Jason or anyone that isn't obvious from what's already aired or been in the comics.
*I don't know who trained Sportsmaster. But if I knew, I wouldn't tell you. Cuz that would be a spoiler.
Since Goliath and Demona are the same age roughly in 994 what would happen when Goliath became to old to lead the clan and stepped down? Wouldn't Demona also be too old?
Yes, it would have been a concern eventually. But they were both young at that stage, and the bigger concern at that time was death by violence, not by old age.
Hello, Weisman. Me again. Hope you're doing well and all of your projects are successful.
I was re-watching Gargoyles again and I was watching the "Hunter's Moon" three-parter and I was curious about something about Jason Canmore:
I noticed something in Part Two, when Robyn is talking to Jason and John about Demona being able to walk around in daylight and how the siblings were debating about whether she'd "share this sorcery with the others," and Jason says, "we'd never know" if she had.
My question is, did he suspect (albeit fleetingly) that Elisa might be a gargoyle in disguise (who was able to use magic to shape-shift at will) thanks to Demona or was he just overthinking the discussion, on top of suspecting that she was hiding something in general? That's the vibe I was getting from the exchange, at least.
Thank you for your time and for answering my question (:
I don't think he ever thought Elisa was a gargoyle.
Hey Mr. Weisman, a few random questions about Spectacular Spider-Man (even though it's been a while)
1) Did Gwen ever meet Harry's parents? (I ask because she has a way different reaction than Peter about them in Final Curtain, leading me to wonder)
2) I noticed when watching that Norman Osborn's treatment of Harry has multiple signs of emotional abuse (and of course, was revealed to have physically hurt his son in the s2 finale). Was this something intentional/clear, or just 'let's make Norman Osborn's relationship with his son like this' without thinking 'we want to make Norman explicitly emotionally abusive'?
I just want to say, thank you for creating a lot of wonderful characters, and doing them justice. Harry Osborn has always been one of my favorite, and I feel like not everyone appreciates the complexity of his characterization/does it well. (Though this is probably true of many characters that pass from writer to writer)
Also, since I know you like to include a level of real science (a level since sci-fi and fantasy inherently require breaks from science), 3) Did you ever read up on epi-genetics? It's really cool!
1. Yeah, she's met them.
2. Like somehow we didn't NOTICE that he was abusive? No.
3. I haven't. At least not yet.
Simple question what are you currently working on as it is hard to follow sometimes and if you can talk or more specifically write about it what will you be working on that you know? Ohh and where can we watch it , or if read it when is it coming out or where can we find it I know you were writing a comic for Marvel I could never find it in several comic book stores.
Right now, I am working on two things. The third season of YOUNG JUSTICE and the second novel in the WORLD OF WARCRAFT: TRAVELER series.
We don't yet know where Season Three of YJ will air, but you can view Seasons One and Two on Netflix, on iTunes or on DVD or BluRay.
The second WARCRAFT book should come out in bookstores (including online bookstores) next November.
Prior to that, I was working on the second and third seasons of SHIMMER AND SHINE. Season Two is currently airing on Nick Jr.
I also wrote the first book in the WORLD OF WARCRAFT: TRAVELER series, which is currently available at bookstores (and online bookstores).
There's also my two novels RAIN OF THE GHOSTS and SPIRITS OF ASH AND FOAM, both of which are currently available at bookstores and online bookstores.
Then there's the AudioPlay version of RAIN OF THE GHOSTS, which is currently available for download at Gumroad.com/RainoftheGhosts.
I recently co-plotted a CAPTAIN ATOM miniseries with Cary Bates, illustrated by Will Conrad. It will be available this January, 2017 from anyplace that sells comic books, including the DC Comics App, Comixology and iTunes.
Last year, I wrote the twelve issue STAR WARS KANAN series for Lucasfilm and Marvel. Those are available either as single issues, as two trades (STAR WARS KANAN: THE LAST PADAWAN and STAR WARS KANAN: FIRST BLOOD) or as an omnibus, again at Bookstores, online Bookstores, comic book stores and from the Marvel Comics App, Comixology or iTunes.
Finally, I also wrote the six issue STARBRAND AND NIGHTMASK for Marvel Comics, available as single issues or as one trade (STARBRAND AND NIGHTMASK: ETERNITY'S CHILDREN [Attend University]), which AGAIN is available at bookstores, online bookstores, comic book stores, the Marvel Comics App, Comixology or iTunes.
Whew! I think that's it! Thanks for asking!
Why was Jaime's cellphone volume all maxed out in Runaways?
I remember there was a reason, but I forget what it was. I'd have to watch the episode again.
What spell did Zatara use in Failsafe?
I've posted all these already. Check the archives. Or check the YJ Wiki: http://youngjustice.wikia.com/wiki/Failsafe
I have really enjoyed the Rain of the Ghosts series and I anxiously await for Book 3 to come out. My question for you though is this: As you write the Rain of the Ghosts series, do you already have an idea of how you want the series to ultimately end, or is the story more fluid with ideas coming to you as you write?
I try to keep myself open to ideas that come to me or to characters who assert themselves, like Renée and Cash did in SPIRITS. But I know pretty much exactly where the story is going.
Mr.Greg do you know Kolchak: The Night Stalker tv show
Yep. Haven't seen it since it aired first run, but I saw all the episodes way back when.
How does Nepture's beard translate into Atlantian? I understand Lagoon Boy says Poseidon something...
Hello Greg, and greetings from Finland! :-)
I have noticed recently that I have started to get VERY interested in "Gargoyles". Haven't seen much of the series yet, but from what I have seen and heard, it looks awesome.
There is a problem though. I have no idea if the DVD's have ever been released outside US. If there was an European release, I would probably had already got it. I would import if it was a possibility; however, I strongly suspect that the DVD's are region locked and won't work on European DVD players.
Who could be an appropriate person to ask about this? I know you aren't directly working as a Disney representative, but I thought you could possibly know some contact to ask about this.
Also, do you know if the series is watchable on some video-on-demand service? I would really love to see more about the series.
Thank you already for your time.
I'd love to be able to help you, but I don't know who to contact specifically, aside from just reaching out to Walt Disney Home Entertainment.
And I don't know of any streaming service, etc., that has the series. Wish I did.
How do the members of The Light contact each other, aside from the conference calls? Cell phones, comlinks?
Carrier pigeon. You name it.
I've noticed that there seemed to be an underlying theme of issues with fathers/paternal figures: Superboy with Superman, Artemis with Sportscaster in S1. Aqualad with Black Manta and Artemis again. Is that deliberate?
It comes out of character, but we don't avoid it.
Why didn't SpecSpidey or YJ have "Previously On" segments? Was it a network or production decision?
I'm vehemently against using them. I learned painfully from Gargoyles that they actually have the opposite effect then one would think.
Instead of acting as small reminders or hints, they convince people that they've missed too much to join the series now. They were never necessary. Everything you truly NEED to know to enjoy a given episode is spelled out in one way or another within the episode itself.
How many pouches can Batman and Robin's utility belts carry?
1- You've said that Wotan's blotting out of the sun was a distraction to lure the League AWAY from Cadmus, at the Light's behest. But what was his "cover story"? That is, what was the reason he gave the League to do so, if he gave one at all.
2- Was Robin, Aqualad and KF's dna REALLY destroyed in "Fireworks"?
3- What do the Forever People shout to transform into Infinity Man and what does it mean?
1. Does he really need to cooperate?
2. Why would you think otherwise?
3. "Tarru!" It's a New Genesian word that means, "It's time to change into Infinity-Man." ;) Seriously, that's from the comics. I never thought to ask what it means, so I guess I don't know.
1. Billy Batson's Zeta-Tube override code is H-O-J. What does it stand for?
2. Can Queen Be enthral Devastation?
3. How far can the batrope extend?
4. Can you tell us what would be Icon's role in the YJ Invasion comic arc if he hadn't been pulled?
1. Hall Of Justice.
2. No spoilers.
3. Not all the way to Mars.
4. He was one of Kylstar's abductees.
Hi Greg. I asked this question before but you never really answered it. In "Alienated", M'gann tears information from a krolotean prisoner's brain and leaves him in a catatonic state. She does this in front of Martian Manhunter and Batman. I am just wondering why there wasn't some kind of a response from them. Didn't they realize what happened? And, if not, why not? Or, if they did, why didn't they confront M'gann about it? Batman and Martian Manhunter's acting like nothing unusual had happened seems odd to me. What am I missing?
The reason I am bringing this up again is that someone I was talking to pointed this scene as an instance of the "idiot ball" trope. So, I thought I would try to get to the bottom of this. Thanks.
I don't know what the "idiot ball" trope means, so I have no idea if it's an instance of it or not. Nor do I recall what I did or did not answer before. It would seem to me that I'm hardly likely to give more information now than I was then.
But the short answer is that they did not fully understand what she had done to the Krolotean, keeping in mind that the Krolotean's mind was SO alien, that J'onn was having trouble reading it at all.
On Earth 16 who founded S.T.A.R. Labs?
In "Welcome to Happy Harbor", Superboy asks why the JL left the Cave for the Hall, even though he "witnessed" the incident that Aqualad mentions as the reason for the change in issues 1 and 2. Didn't he simply "make the connection", like when he didn't recognize Snapper Carr, or is this one of those "what-happens-in-the-comics-is-"cannon"-but-none-of-it-is-ever-mentioned-or-acknowledged-in-the-show-because-the-comics-were-retroactively-written-AFTER-the-episodes" cases?
He didn't make the connection. There was nothing in his vision that indicated the League was going to leave the cave.
The comics are fully integrated into the series and vice versa.
