In 2017, Bruce's full name was established as "Bruce Thomas Wayne" in post-Flashpoint DC Comics continuity. Does this full name also apply to the Earth-16 version of the character?
Is the correct way to say the name of Superman's biological mother is "Lara El" (which you mentioned in a previous response) or "Lara-El" (which is how it is stated in the Smallville TV series by Kara to Clark in a Season 7 episode)? Also, please explain why whichever version of the name you choose here is the correct one in the Earth-16 continuity?
I have nothing to do with the choices made on Smallville, and am largely unaware of them. They hold no relevance.
In the Earth-16 continuity, male names are hyphenated. Female names are not. So Jor-El and Lara El. Dru-Zod and Ursa Zod. Unmarried females use their father's full last name as a surname, e.g. Faora Hu-Ul.
These choices - while obviously (and perhaps unfortunately) paternalistic - had the virtue of clarity and consistency for us, on the show, while lining up with tradition from previous comics continuity.
According the the DC Database Wiki:
#1. Bette Kane's full name is Mary Elizabeth "Bette" Kane.
#2. Bette Kane is the daughter of an as-of-yet unnamed man who was born within the Kane family tree. As such, this means that Kate's father (Jacob Kane) and this unnamed man are in fact brothers, and that means Kate and Bette are paternal cousins via their respective fathers.
As such, are these two facts also deemed true within the Earth-16 continuity?
I'm not committing to any of this, beyond the obvious fact that Kate and Bette are related.
I might have made a mistake in a previous question in regards to Bruce Wayne and Kate Kane' relationship. So just for clarification:
1. From Bruce's point of view, Kate is his maternal cousin.
2. From Kate's point of view, Bruce is her paternal cousin.
3. Points #1 and 2 are stated in this manner because Bruce's mother (Martha Wayne) and Kate's father (Jacob Kane) are siblings.
As such, are these three facts correct in the Earth-16 animated universe?
1. Does Jim Harper still work at Cadmus? If not, what does he do now?
2. How big is Willâs business
1a. He works for Bowhunter Security.
2. I'm not sure what you mean by "big". But I think of it currently as small but growing.
1. Since Superboy is apart of the Kent family did he call Jonathan and Martha, Pa and Ma like Clark does?
2. Did Black Canary see Superboy as a protege of sorts since she trained him in combat. It seems they shared a somewhat close relationship in season 1 and did Superboy ever look up to her as a parental figure?
2. I think he sees her as a friend and mentor - but not as a parent.
Why didn't Garfield call Perdita and apologize to her after he end his time taking drugs and ask her to resume their relationship?
You wrote this question back in January before you could have seen how the whole plotline turned out, so I assume by now the answer is moot. But your question seems to assume he stopped taking drugs immediately after she discovered his pill-stash. That wasn't the case.
since technically humans are considered animals, and we saw Garfield in Season 2 living in a form that combines man and monkey elements Can he create other combinations of related species? or add to his human form elements from another animal, like wings?
on the same note why Garfield can not change to a Martian? if humans are part of the animal kingdom shouldn't martian be also a part of it?
sorry for the bad English, not my native language.... hope you still understood the questions
1. In theory, I suppose, it's possible. But that's gotta be much harder. And a human with wings might not be able to fly. In a battle situation, trying something like that might not be smart.
2. It's not impossible, I suppose. But it doesn't come naturally to him.
I am a lifelong fan of all of your work! Especially gargoyles and young justice. I wanted to ask 3 questions that I didnât see waiting to be answered already.
1 did you intentionally include props from gargoyles in young justice season four at the Tower of fate? A.k.a. the Phoenix gate, The eye of Oden, grimorum arcanorum.
2 are there more gargoyles Easter eggs throughout YJ?
3 I have recognized the voices of many of the actors on young Justice, as actors who also voiced characters on gargoyles. Do you like to work a lot with the same people?
I think itâs pretty fantastic, but sometimes when I hear the voices I think of their character from gargoyles instead of who they are in young justice.
1. If I said it was an accident or coincidence would you believe me?
2. Here and there.
3. I do. Very much.
With all due respect, why do you keep dismissing the feedback that there are too many characters? it's probably the biggest criticism i see of the show, even among fans, but the cast has only gotten bigger since season two.
What do you want or expect me to do with that criticism?
I think it's valid in and of itself.
But it assumes something about the show that just isn't true in our minds.
This is the show Brandon and I want to make. A big expansive view of the DC Universe from the point of view of its young - but maturing - heroes. One that moves forward through time and isn't stagnant, which by definition means we're always going to be introducing new young heroes as our original leads continue their growth and maturity.
That's the show. So, again, what would you have me do with this criticism?
Change the show to fit the critics?
I mean, frankly, anyone else could make the sort of small cast show that this critique suggests. And it's been done and will continue to be done over and over again. And that's great. There's absolutely nothing wrong with that approach.
But simply put, that's not OUR show. That's not Young Justice.
So I'm not "dismissing" it, as you say. I'm just shrugging and ignoring it. Cuz it's irrelevant to what we're trying to do.
I don't think there are too many characters per episode or per season. We never attempt to focus on EVERYONE every year.
The real underlying truth behind the criticism, I believe, is that for the critic, we're not focusing enough on the SPECIFIC characters they WANT us to focus on, because we've chosen to focus on other characters instead. So it's less about there even being too many characters than about the choices we make as producers/creators/writers.
I'd wager most everyone's good with us focusing on the original six, but most everyone has at least one or two favorites that they'd specifically like to see us add to that spotlighted group. And odds are good - because overall we indeed do have so many characters - that we're just not putting their specific picks under that spotlight.
Thus, if we just happen to focus on Joe's faves, that means we're not focused on Julie's faves. Etc.
So for Julie... the problem can't be that her favorite character doesn't merit the spotlight right now, doesn't fit with the goals of the season. It must be that all the other over-abundance of characters are forcing her favorite OUT of the spotlight. Then THAT must be the problem: Too many characters!
Meanwhile, the series may - quite legitimately - not be everyone's cup of tea. I can accept that. But for the most part, I think our fans like the show we're giving them - which NOT incidentally is the show we want to make.
We're passionate about it, and hopefully that passion shines through and makes the fandom passionate about it, too.
Even with 777 characters and counting...
I have some Young justice questions for you Mr Weisman 1. Zatanna once told the team that ''All magic requires energy which usually comes from within'' Does this same principle apply with Martian magic as well? 2.Besides weddings, and entertainment purposes, What else does the yellow Martian order use there magic for? 3. Does Black canary ever wear a baseball cap or newsboy cap when not in costume ?
2. All sorts of stuff, I suppose.
3. EVER? Sure. I guess. Why not?
You've mentioned that Batman was raised as a Protestant Christian as a child. Does he still believe in God after his parents' died or did he, like his comics version, become atheist after their deaths. I guess I could also ask the same about Nightwing.
I don't feel the need to lock this in for either character. I'm guessing it's not as simplistic an answer as flipping a switch.
When the team was captured and held hostage on the War World in Invasion, did they come up with a cover story to explain their disappearance to their schools and friends? And for the ones that were minors, what dd Dick tell their parents?
Parents or guardians were all told the truth - or as much of it as was known at that time.
And, yes, cover stories were created to protect their secret identities, as needed.
When joining the Justice League, is a requirement to have at least two aliases (civilian and hero names)? I think everyone on the current League does but I might be missing someoneâ¦
No. There's no requirement for any aliases.
Could you confirm the names of the two great leaders mentioned in Involuntary please?
The subtitles call them King Ma'arrun and Queen Sykara, but I'm sure I hear something more like King Ma'arell and Queen Jakara. I'm also suspicious about the lack of an apostrophe in Sykara.
M'aarell and J'karaa.
Hey Greg!, so i love kaldur, hands down my favorite character!
you have mentioned that kaldur dosent really idetify with surface sexuality tags, does atlantis have any sexuality tags that he does identify with??
Kaldur believes in loving whomever he loves.
In Cornered what else did M'gann and Conner talk about? Aside from telling him she brain fried Kaldur, did she tell him about the deep cover mission? that Artemis was still alive? or did they talk more about their relationship?
Mostly they talked about her feelings of guilt.
Is Dick's apartment seen in issues 20 & 25 above the same warehouse used as the Team's temporary base from Cornered onwards?
Is this the same warehouse Dick, Kaldur, Artemis and Wally meet in at the end of Depths?
1. No. Although it's not far away.
2. Hm. Maybe. I'd have to look again to see if that fits.
How is Vandal keeping Leaguers busy on Appellaxia?
What happened to Bear and Dreamer's relationship?
Loved M'comm's view of the Greens as "a superstitious and cowardly lot," by the way.
1. No spoilers.
2. It's progressing slowly.
Thanks. That was fun for us, too.
How did you choose the Injustice League members? Were you working from a huge list of supervillains?
I had compiled a large list of super-villains for the Light. After we made those seven picks, we returned to that same list for the Injustice League. Ultra-Humanite and Wotan had been major candidates for the Light, for example, before we settled on Brain and Klarion.
In "Eminent Threat", was Artemis' refer to Superboy as "Super-Friend" a nod to the Super Friends series?
1. When did Ed and his boyfriend start dating?
2. How did Ed and his boyfriend get to know each other?
3. What was Ed and his boyfriend's first date?
4. Did Ed ask out his boyfriend first, or was it the other way around?
5. Why do Ed and his boyfriend work as a couple?
6. Did Ed and his boyfriend know they were gay before meeting each other?
1. I haven't locked in a date for that.
2. Seriously, are you TRYING to get me in trouble? They had mutual friends and mutual experiences.
3. No spoilers.
4. No spoilers.
5. Do they?
1) How come Tye and Asami weren't invited to the Harvest Festival that was being held at the Meta-Human Youth Center during the episode "Illusion of Control"?
2) Are those two still good friends with Arsenal (Roy Harper), Static (Virgil Hawkins) and El Dorado (Eduardo Dorado Jr.) ever since the events of YJ Season 2?
3) Is Maurice Bodaway (a.k.a. Shelly Longshadow's bad-tempered Ex-boyfriend) still in Jail were her belongs?
1. They were invited. It's interesting to me that you ask why they weren't invited, rather than asking why didn't they attend. That choice feels vaguely hostile to me. But maybe I'm reading into it. Out of Universe, the original plan was for them to attend. But it was decided that for production purposes, we just couldn't handle adding two more characters to an already crowded field.
2. I don't know how close they ever were with Roy. But, yes, they're still good friends with Virgil and Ed, and Jaime and Traci and Bart, as well.
3. No spoilers.
Considering that the YJ versions of Wonder Girl, Artemis, Zatanna, and Miss Martian appear in "Scooby-Doo! WrestleMania Mystery", does that mean that it's canon to the YJ universe or is it just fun cameos?
Just fun cameos. At least for now...
Which of these two would you rather do?
A Spectacular Spider-Man Season 3 or writing the next Spider-Man trilogy for the MCU?
(I mainly ask this because I think you'd be the best choice for writing the next Spider-Man films)
The hypotheticals attached to these questions are so vast as to make it impossible to answer. I'd love to do additional seasons of Spectacular. And I certainly wouldn't say no to writing anything for the MCU, let alone three Spider-Man films.
