Why does the Young Justice tie-in comic have lightning for the speedster but the show does not?
It does? Where?
A non Beast Boy question~
Been exploring Earth 16 Atlantis a bit, a few things that seem evident or a bit off.
1. The scene arrangement in Issue 14 seems to allude to the city state origins of several Atlanteans, are these correct allocations:
-Lori Lemaris: Tritonis
-Lagoon Boy: Neptunos
2. Wyynde has similar tattoo markings on his collar/chest to Lagoon Boy in Season Two, is his sorcery specialisation in the same area (puffer/strength)?
Atlantean differences are stated to be due to diverging evolutionary paths. We see multiple "Merfolk" type Atlanteans in addition to others more varied subspecies. Assuming there would be many of each of these subspecies, characters such as the Lagoon Boy would likely not have an unusual appearance when in the area where this subspecies developed/migrated to.
3. However, Lagoon Boy in particular seems to consider himself unusual. Does this line of reasoning not hold for his appearance, or was his strangeness just highlighted for character building purposes as an issue faced by real teenagers frequently and not entirely due to his Atlantean physiology?
1. Lori's definitely from Tritonis. I don't think we established where La'gaan is from, though it's not Posiedonis. M'chiste is from Posiedonis, but Garth is from Crastinus.
2. No. There are subtle differences in their skin-icons.
3. He's not unusual at home among his family. But on the surface world - and during the time of the Purists in Posiedonis - he definitely did not seem to fit in visually.
1a. How old is Deadshot
1b. Is Floyd Lawton his real name?
2. How is the standard living in Bialya compare to Qurac? Do the citizens live in poverty? Do they even have rights?
3. You said that 9/11 happened in Young Justice, and I was wondering if Hurricane Katrina, The 2008 Financial Crisis, and the BP Oil Spill happened as well.
Floyd Lawton was born in 1975.
2. Qurac has a higher standard of living.
2a. Some do in both countries.
2b. Plenty of rights in Qurac. It's a mixed bag in Bialya.
I've noticed this question asked a few times pertaining Gargoyles, but not Young Justice, so here I am. I don't think these count as spoilers since both Season One and Two have ended, but if they are, feel free to ignore them. Anyways:
1. Was Wally a virgin through Season One? If yes, did he lose it to Artemis between the first two seasons?
2. Was M'gann a virgin through Season One? If yes, did she lose it to Conner between the first two seasons?
3. Was Kaldur a virgin through Season One? If yes, did he lose it between the first two seasons?
4. Was Artemis a virgin through Season One? If yes, did she lose it to Wally between the first two seasons?
5. Was Dick a virgin through Season One? If yes, did he lose it to Zatanna between the first two seasons, or was Bette his first on his 19th birthday?
1. Yes. I'm only answering this one, because it seems so damn obvious to me.
1a. No spoilers.
2. No spoilers.
2a. No spoilers.
3. No spoilers.
3a. No spoilers.
4. No spoilers.
4a. No spoilers.
5. No spoilers.
5a. No spoilers.
5b. No, Bette was not his first. (Again, that seems dead obvious to me.)
Hello good day
I have a question
The animated films Justice League: Doom and Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths
Happen in the universe of Young Justice ie are they canon for young justice? That's all greetings and sorry for my english is not my first language
Here's a list of the complete YJ Canon:
YOUNG JUSTICE (Season One) - 26 episodes (101-126)
YOUNG JUSTICE: INVASION (Season Two) - 20 episodes (201-220)
YOUNG JUSTICE LEGACY video game - including Red Arrow's journal
YOUNG JUSTICE compantion comic book series - 27 issues (0-25 plus a free comic book day story)
--All of those issues (except for the free comic book day issue) have been collected in four trade paperbacks:
--*YOUNG JUSTICE, VOLUME ONE (collects 0-6)
--*YOUNG JUSTICE, VOLUME TWO: TRAINING DAY (collects 7-13)
--*YOUNG JUSTICE, VOLUME THREE: CREATURE FEATURES (collects 14-19)
--*YOUNG JUSTICE, VOLUME FOUR: INVASION (collects 20-25)
That's it. Period. Nothing else is canon to our series until Season Three (i.e. YOUNG JUSTICE: OUTSIDERS) hits the air (or until we get more comics).
This is a long shot but- Earlier in December 2016, you asked fans to buy more Young Justice comic books so the publishers will green light a new Comic book series on Young Justice.
Can we expect new Young Justice comics this year? or is DC at least considering a new series?
If the moderators decide to show you this, thanks for reading and much thanks for Young Justice.
DC is, I think, considering it. But I've got no news yet. So keep buying those comics!!!
I noticed someone else asked a question about doing YJ stories that require a more mature rating. In this case, the poster wanted more brutal fight scenes. I don't have much sympathy with his desire for more violence, but it did make me wonder about something else: are there specific instances in which you would have liked to have told on YJ but couldn't because of the limitations of the target audience?
For example, I thought it was rather clever what you did in "Disordered." Personally, as a 49 year old, I wouldn't have minded an entire episode of them talking to Black Canary in therapy, but the reality is that your target audience wouldn't have much patience for that, and you probably couldn't have sold the idea to Cartoon Network either. You came up with an intelligent compromise of having the team's therapy sessions inter-cut with Superboy's adventures with the Forever People.
1) Are there other instances in which you had to come up with creative solutions to making an otherwise unpalatable story palatable to your intended audience? Can you think of some examples and what the work-arounds might have been?
2) And, are there still other stories that you wanted to tell but couldn't at all because of the network or because they wouldn't have interested your audience? For example, you probably couldn't produce an episode that was entirely a slice-of-life episode without an action element because that's your audience tunes in for. Have you ever wanted to do an episode like that on YJ?
3) Will the third season have the same content restrictions placed upon it as previous seasons? Or, will you have more liberty with your creative choices?
I wouldn't say the "limitations of the target audience" but I would say the limitations of those who are nervous in seats of power.
But your example doesn't hold water for me. "Disordered" was told the way Brandon and I wanted to tell it. There was no compromise for our audience.
1. Your question is based on a faulty premise. I'm not really sure how to address it.
I suppose we hinted at Red Arrow's heroin addiction, as opposed to depicting it. Added in a metaphorical layer about his addiction to searching for the Original Roy, without negating the possibility that over that time he had also slipped into substance abuse.
On another completely different topic, we were aware that we could not depict LGBTQ relationships either. But that doesn't mean we don't have LGBTQ characters. You strive to write with consistency even toward those elements that you're not allowed to discuss.
2. 100% slice of life? No. I like the mix and the counterpoint.
3. I'm not commenting on the third season at all.
I know you said that there were no paperback copies left for the Young Justice series. Is there a possibility that some more might be made in the future?
First, I'm beyond excited about Season Three! Congrats!
Second, while reading the comics, something very much didn't sit right with me -- Red Torpedo/Jim Lockhart. Robots don't eat, sleep (theoretically), or need to use the bathroom. So, did Jim just not do any of that? Also, whenever he changed clothes, wouldn't he have noticed something missing down there? (Unless, T.O. Morrow added that in, I guess...) It just confused me greatly and I'd really appreciate you clearing the subject up. :)
He's anatomically correct. He can eat and that product goes through him. It doesn't provide anything, but it allows him to mimic being human. He's also programmed to ignore any discrepancies.
I recently watched the first two season of YJ and purchased the first 2 collections of the YJ comics. I really loved them, good luck on season 3, and if the sales are good enough on the continuation of YJ comic series.
But I have some questions too:
1.) One of my friends told me that he once read an issue called "Face your Fears". But I'm unable to find it anywhere, and it's not part of the collections. Is it still available somewhere? Is that a canon issue too?
2.) We know that both Jay and KF were slower than Barry.. but who is the faster one between Jay and KF? (Jay'speed in his prime, and Wally's speed as of Season 2)
Thank you for your time
1. That was a giveaway. I think it was written to be canon, but I don't have a copy of it either, which makes it tough for me to include it as canon sometimes... mostly because I keep forgetting that it existed.
2. They were close to even, but I'd tend to give Wally the edge because of modern training methods.
