Hi Greg!I have only one question.
1. How Artemis and Wally separate their household duties?
With egalitarian finesse.
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 saw that you said you're more familiar with Cassandra Cain now :D Were you able to read her Pre-nu52 run as batgirl ?
Regarding Young Justice:
Is there any significance to the order in which the Justice League members are sitting at the League meeting in the episode "Agendas"? Even if there isn't a larger reason for the seating order in general, are there any smaller decisions you made beyond the Hawks or the Green Lanterns sitting together?
I don't recall. Sorry. If I had to guess, I'd say storyboarding defined most of it. Who was talking with whom to make shots, i.e. camera angles, easy to manage.
Hey Greg, theres something I would like to ask your opinion about.
You see comics have been notorious for being hard on average people to get into. You should know that your cartoons have been much more influential than whatever it's publised on printed form.
For millions of people when they think Young Justice they think of earth 16 and when they think of spiderman they think of spectacular.
Say Teen Titans Tv show' has Starfire as a cute alien and naive girl wich is among the best female characters ever in my opinion. While on comics she is a dumb bimbo with hardly more personalitybthan a brick
Comics on the other hand are harder to get into and well you might jot agree but the quality is much better in cartoons such as yours. I would rather watch young justice that get into the continuity mess that comics are.
It would seem that every continiuity reboot that tries to make things simpler just makes things worse.
In your experience what would you do to make comics as approachable as tv shows are?
Well, I'm going to start - without going point by point - by NOT agreeing with everything you've stated above. Some comics have issues. Some are both accessible and very well-done. In general, I'm really liking DC's REBIRTH, for example. I'm reading all of it - trying to keep up. I don't love every series, let alone every issue, but generally, I think they're doing a pretty darn good job. I'd particularly recommend Wonder Woman.
And I think there are plenty of crap television series, as well.
It's all about execution. Plenty of good comics series. Plenty of good television series. Plenty of lousy examples of both. But I'm glad you like YJ and Spectacular.
I have questions regarding adapting DC comics.
You see there is certain fan adaptation running around on the net( I won't mention it for obvious reasons) , and to be honest all the changes seem silly, cringe inducing and fanfic like.
Yet all your changes seem logical. I mean replacing Aqualad with Kalduram or Cassie as Wondergirl would be controversial but it's logical and I like it. You even improved on many characters like from the source material like Artemis and Sportsmaster.
Most of the changes you have done are like apple products they just work.
So my question is How do you make earth 17 feel so cohesive and faithful despite doing some heavy changes to the source material?
Well, for starters, it's Earth-16.
But otherwise the goal is to get down to the core of every character that you're adapting and be true to that. Not all the details matter, proven out by the fact that over 75 years of comics history, a lot of the details about any given character keep changing. But who the character is at her or his core does matter.
All this is influenced by what we've already done in a universe that we're trying to keep cohesive and coherent, so we think about how any new character would fit into that schema. Or if they'll fit. Things like scope effect us too. For example, we talked about including Supergirl in both Season One and Season Two, but her story was too big to fit in either season without derailing our main overall plot or skimping on her story. We'll get to her eventually - no promises as to when - but it'll have to be when we could do justice (YOUNG justice) to her story.
Look Greg I am a huge YJ fan more than you could know I live in abq USA I am a 12 year old girl.i thought every day how would it be like to bust and see you ask you in person some questions.i always thought what it would be like to play on young justice meeting all the voices and being one of them that always comes up in my mind I watched young justice over and over making sure I know everything they say and my best friend marlee she hated young justice until she watched it we now love it we talk all the time we always say stay whelmed to each other if you do get this please text me back firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm sorry, Ivana, but it wouldn't be responsible for me to text a twelve-year-old girl, specifically, or for me to break precedent and begin texting individual fans. I don't have time to have that kind of personal communication with everyone, and it wouldn't be fair for me to play favorites.
On top of that, I'm very nervous about you posting your information here. I wouldn't recommend anyone do that - especially a twelve-year-old. Please know that if anyone texts you and claims to be me, IT IS NOT ME.
If you have questions, you can always reach me here at ASK GREG. I know there's a delay to my responding - I'm currently four and half months behind. But most things can keep that long.

I'm currently taking a break from social media, but I tweet on rare occasions, and I'll probably come back eventually.
did wally get rid of the tracer after artemis told her secret
I'm sure it was dealt with.
Hi Greg! First, I just want to say that I am so excited for Young Justice season 3! I can't wait to see what you have in store for us. :-) I just had a few questions about Bart Allen, if that's okay, since I saw you explain in a response that he does not have the same hyper-active metabolism that Wally does & doesn't have to eat/keep food handy like him:
1.) Does he still have to eat/drink more/more often than a non-speedster would, or would he dehydrate/be affected by hunger more quickly?
2.) Do illnesses, medicines, sedatives, poisons, etc. affect him differently? Like, do they have little to no effect, the effects not last very long, or something else?
3.) Similarly, does he have any accelerated healing? For example, would a broken bone heal much more quickly for him (though posibly incorrectly if not set right) or a cut not last very long?
Thank you for taking the time to read this!
1. He's hungry a lot. Whether that's a speedster-metabolism thing or a teenager-metabolism thing, I'll leave to your discernment.
2. We'll have to address that on a case by case basis.
3. I would think so.
How did the Light get inside Cadmus in episode 126? Did they walk through the front door or teleported?
They came in through the kitchen. ;)
