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.
In season four, Cheshire mentions that she has been on the League of Shadows's hitlist since betraying them to save Red Arrow. However in Young Justice: Legacy, we see her working with the Shadows in Greece after she helped Red Arrow.
Was the contract only taken out against her later, perhaps for another reason? Or was she able to come to some temporary arrangement with them around the time of Legacy?
After Jade left Roy, she was able to briefly reconcile with the Shadows, who placed her under probation, temporarily suspending the contract on her life. Once she realized she was pregnant, she fled the Shadows again, and the contract was reinstated. But it was an open contract. Not considered a priority. And once she and Roy had reconciled, after she had given birth to Lian, it's unclear whether that now put Cheshire/Jade under the terms of the Light's Nuclear Option. Even Jade herself doesn't really know.
1) Where did the Outsider's mission against Kobra seen in flashback in "Volatile" take place?
2) What date did the flashbacks to Joker's attack on the UN and Barbara's paralysis seen in "The Lady, Or The Tigress?" take place?
1. Near a radio tower.
2. January of Team Year Eight.
My question would be : does Child's pillars of fire have anything to do with the pillars of fire on Apokolips ? Wonderful work on YJ it's the best animated serie I've watched since 15 years ! Thank you Greg :)
1. Why did Jamie keep his Scarab talking to him a secret when he first joined the Team?
2. What kind of wedding were Mâgann and Conner planning on Earth? A Church, Beach?
3. Did Adam Strange and Alanna become a couple at some point between seasons 2-3?
4. Does Wonder Girl know that Zeus is her father?
5. What year exactly did Jade leave Will and Lian?
1. He was afraid of what people would think about it. Plus, he couldn't prove it was really happening.
2. Something along the lines of what they did in 426.
4. No spoilers.
5. I haven't locked that in yet, but it's sometime between late 2016 and early 2018. So 2017 is probably the best bet.
Was ultra humanite giving a huge boost of resources when he became a member of the light?
Hello Mr. Greg Weisman I'm a fan of Young Justice and I have a few questions about the series. First allow me to apologize for my bad English, although it is probably already understandable by the text here I live in a country that English isn't the native language. So I'm want to apologize if something that I'm writing her perceived as disrespectfully or as an unclear way that not the meaning of mine.
1. In season 4. when Lady Shiva (a real name by the Young Justice Wiki Fandom "Sandra Wu-San") said that she can order to kill Barbara Gordon (in Episode 8. of season 4. "I Know Why the Caged Cat Sings") is that was truly an empty threat? I mean Lady Shiva herself kill Ocean-Master (a real name by Young Justice Wiki Fandom Orm) because he tries to do something similar (at Episode 9. of season 3. "Home Fires") but there the people that he chose to target in that house was in most of them a group of a normal people (and kids) that not works as heroes, here Lady Shiva said that she order to kill Barbara Gordon that worked in her past as a hero under the codename Batgirl and still work as one under the codename Oracle is that case also considers as part of the "Nuclear option of the Light" or not? And who exactly the Nuclear option" included the "heroes" family, the "heroes" friends, "heroes that stop works as heroes"? After all the Light attacks and kill "heroes" in the past like Blue Beetle (a real name Ted Kord).
2. What happened to Captain Marvel when he returned to be Billy Batson at Episode 26. of Season 1. ("Auld Acquaintance") it seems like he was free from the "Brainwash" so why did he not say "Shazam" once more return to be Captain Marvel and help the members of the Team to free the others Justice League members from the "Brainwash"?
3. Is the race of the "Forever People" like Moonrider, Metron, and Darkseid are immortals to normal damage (damage that not created by a specific weakness of the race like Kryptonite is for Conner Kent/Superboy) and all the kind can be haled themself imitate like "Halo"/"Violet Harper"/Gabrielle Daou" does. I question that because the question that Forager asks "Halo"/"Violet Harper" after she healed herself from the damage that Sensei give to her in Episode 6. of season 3. "Rescue Op".
4. I see that question on the page of Young Justice Headscratchers in "TV Tropes" and I was wondering about it by myself why the Meta-Human Youth Center uses Inhibitor Collar could they not find something else more comfortable like a bracelet or at least change the design so it was not so big?
5. How many people in the Team/Bat Family/Justice League know about the identity of Orphan and the details about her like her past, being the daughter of Lady Shiva (Sandra Wu-San), that she can't talk, that she was involved to what happened to Barbara Gordon and the reason (if even have one) that even the leader of the Team Tigress (Artemis Lian Croc) don't know about of this.
Have a nice day. And my apologies again if something that I write here was unclear.
1. It's iffy whether or not Barbara would fall under the Nuclear Option. That tends to be reserved for non-combatant relatives of the heroes. Oracle would be on the bubble. But it was - largely - an empty threat. Shiva would probably need approval up the ladder for that kind of assassination. It's considered "fair game" to kill the heroes in combat. But to assassinate them - even if they don't fall under the Nuclear Option restriction - is another ball of wax.
2. That's a good question. Maybe he did. But all those actions scenes were taking place simultaneously. By the time he got involved, it might have all been over. Or perhaps he didn't want to risk changing back and maybe still be under Klarion's control.
3. Forever People isn't the name of a race. They are a group - like the Team or the Outsiders - who have banded together for adventures. Moonrider is a member of the Forever People. But he's a New Genesian. Metron is a New Genesian, as well, but he's not a member of the Forever People. Darkseid is an Apokoliptan, and obviously isn't one of the Forever People team. All three are New Gods. Strictly speaking, New Gods are not immortal. They age - VERY SLOWLY - and will eventually die. They can also be killed. But that's not easy. They can take a lot of punishment. And they have Motherboxes or Fatherboxes, which can also heal them. I'm not sure if that answers your question. But I hope so.
4. No. Or at least not easily. The collar, in essence, interacts with the spine or the brain. And it has to work on all sorts of different powers. It's big and clumsy, and thems just the breaks.
5. They all know she can't speak. Most know she was involved in Barbara's injury. Most DON'T know she's the daughter of Lady Shiva. Although word of that is gonna spread now.
What does Dick for a living or does he need a job since he is Bruce Wayne's foster son? Also what does Kaldur do for a living or is his job as Aquaman his full time job?
Dick sometimes works as Dan Danger at Haly Circus. Other times, well.... no spoilers.
Kaldur is the Atlantean Minister of Justice, when he's not being Aquaman.
In Volatile Miss Martian shifted to her natural Martian form while still wearing her engagement ring. Did Superboy get some kind of special material so the ring can be accustomed to her shape shifting to prevent it from being destroyed or falling off?
No, it's normal ring material. She must have adjusted her shape-shifting enough so that it would all be copacetic. Typically, I don't think she'd wear it on most missions, from this point on.
Hi Young Justice fan here
Just want to know that even though the Martian race survives in the cartoon is J'onn still a widower or was he never married?
As an aspiring writer myself, I always have some characters that I prefer to work with more than others, I was wondering which of the YJ characters is the most fun for you?
The most fun to write dialogue for is G. Gordon Godfrey.
Beyond that, there really isn't a character I don't enjoy writing in the series.
Thank you for Young Justice: Phantoms! I've been really enjoying this season! A couple questions I've come up with:
1. Not sure how much you've thought about this but what was the in-universe reason for the change in Wonder Woman's costume? (Or for that matter, any of the League's in between seasons 2 and 3 if you've thought about them.)
2. This is a logistics-y question. Was the fact that you had a character model of a (blue) Isis from 2.18 (Intervention) inform your decision to use a (living) version of her in 4.13?
Thank you! As ever, I appreciate this deeply nerdy place!
1. Having gotten past fitting into the super-hero aesthetic, Diana decided to wear something that better reflected her roots.
2. It didn't hurt.
Simple yes or no question with no spoilers. Was Liz going to remain part of The Spectacular Spider-Man series as an important character alongside the likes of Flash? Not saying they would be a major focus, but in terms of character development and the brilliance of the series getting side characters involved with the plot, was she going to get her redemption in season 3 onwards and played a vital role? I liked the way you altered the comic book version by changing a few things (again no spoiler) and bringing a refreshing look to the character. It would be nice if you give a response that is more than just a yes or no to understand your answer, but itâs ok if you choose not to.
Josh, I like how you preface this with "Simple yes or no question" and then end with "give a response that is more than just a yes or no."
Anyway, we had no plan to drop Liz Allen from the cast of Spectacular. Everyone was still going to the same high school, and no one was disappearing. Screen time always dictates that Peter/Spidey comes first, but we loved our cast and wanted to continue to explore them all. Beyond that, I won't give any details.
A few questions about Mary Bromfield:
1) I know she was just an illusion in this scene, but what was the biological equivalent age of the little Mary that we saw in "Teg Ydaer!"?
2) I noticed that little Mary was wearing a white dress, and then when she transformed into Sergeant, she was also wearing white. This reminded me of how Billy wore red (with blue) and that his Captain Marvel colors are/were predominantly red. Are the Marvels' color schemes specifically based on what they like to wear when they first transform at a young age or is this just a co-incidence?
3) Obviously the marionettes we saw in Thirteen's scenes were exaggerated versions of those characters (Zatanna, Blue Beetle and Beast Boy) with all three of them sounding a bit different and far more chirpy (Beast Boy even sounded like he did in the original Teen Titans cartoon) so it's fair to say that those were NOT accurate depictions of those characters. They were exaggerations and reflections of how Thirteen viewed them. Therefore, is it fair to say that the very pushy little Mary Bromfield and the super angry Sergeant Marvel were NOT accurate depictions of how little Mary and Sergeant typically behaved? Would it be right, instead, to say that what we saw of little Mary and Sergeant was some sort of extreme exaggeration, based on how Mary of Team Year Ten thinks of those versions of herself when looking back?
4) Possible spoiler request here, but I would like to ask anyway while I'm here: has Mary Bromfield been raised by a wealthy family in Young Justice, like she was in the original comics?
2. I tend to think it's not a coincidence, but I don't want to lock myself in to anything yet.
3. Yes, that's fair to say.
4. I guess it depends on how you define wealthy. The Bromfields aren't on the Wayne or Luthor level. But they are well off. Upper middle class, I'd say.
Between Young Justice Seasons 2-3 during the two year time skip, Karen Beecher and Mal Duncan left the Team. But why did they decide to leave the Team? Did they both decide to take a break from the hero life due to Karen being pregnant or because they wanted to retire from the hero life like how Artemis and Wally once did after the events of Young Justice: Legacy?
Without going into spoilerish details, I just think they felt it was time. Karen wanted to focus on her studies and research. They wanted to get married and start a family. Mal was ready to try something new.
Hey, love the show, here's hoping for season 5.
In Og Htrof Dna Reuqnoc!, Mary references the destruction Child could do to New York and El Paso to Khalid and Traci, supposedly referencing their homes.
My questions are:
1) Is Traci from/lives in El Paso?
2) Is Khalid from/lives in New York?
1. Traci wasn't born in El Paso, but, yes, that's where she's lived for the last few years.
2. Yes. Khalid is a born and bred New Yorker and still lives there.
Why did you not let Perdita get Garfield to Liston to her to save their relationship ang help with his drug problem in the 13 episode of the four season of young justice? Because that is what most fans wanted to happen.
Strangely, I'm not here to give fans what they (think they) want. I'm here to tell a good story that respects character. Hopefully, by now you've seen how the whole thing plays out.
Hey Greg ! First, I wanted to thank you and Brandon for this show, its writing is a-m-a-z-i-n-g ! Hope you'll get season 5 !
Since Conner still had some powers left on Mars, why didn't his cut heal ? I mean, he still had some healing powers, right ? So a little cut wasn't a big deal...
It would've healed over time.
In the comics, Detective Chimp tries to put on the Helmet of Fate but it doesn't fit him. In Young Justice, it's said the Helmet needs a Human host. I have a few questions about how Nabu would vet the viability of a host.
1. Does this mean that a Martian or a Kryptonian could never become Doctor Fate?
2. What about a human/alien hybrid like Conner or Gar?
2.(b) If Beast Boy could put it on, could he shapeshift? The idea of an animal Fate is amusing though I imagine Nabu would not agree.
3. What if one of the Red Androids that attacked Mount Justice or Red Tornado had tried to put it on?
4. Would Violet or Vic's relationship with Father or Motherbox disqualify them from the Helmet?
I'm not too big on hypotheticals. So I'm just going to say, NO SPOILERS, and - for now - leave this to your imagination.
It seems like every time the League has a mystic problem, they need to enlist Zatanna because they can't find Doctor Fate. Where does he disappear to for so long that no one can ever find him? Is he truly that busy all the time or are there some people who still have a bitter taste in their mouth about how Nabu acquired a host that they'd prefer to not even see Fate?
We don't see that many League missions - and fewer still that require a mystic solution, but I guess my answer to (the way you put) your question is ALL OF THE ABOVE.
Doctor Fate is pretty busy, in my mind, handling mystic problems that the general public - and even the League - never learn about. Case in point, our brief glimpse of Fate in Young Justice: Targets.
But I'm sure there are plenty of Leaguers who don't care for Fate or the way he hijacked Zatara. Plus Nabu doesn't exactly go out of his way to be endearing.
a) When did Arsenal (Roy Harper) know/heard about the Outsiders?
b) How come Arsenal never thought of joining the Outsiders? I bet Static (Virgil Hawkins) and El Dorado (Eduardo Dorado Jr.) would've loved to have him join.
c) Does Arrowette (Cissie King-Jones) dislike Arsenal for any reason?
a. Shortly after it was announced. It was a pretty splashy announcement. Hard to miss.
b. Roy was kind of doing his own thing until Artemis asked him to rejoin the Team.
c. No. Why?
1 Rephrasing an earlier question I asked you. What does ultra humanite think of dr jaceâs unhealthy obsession with turning random kids with a metagene into metahumans and thinking they are her children?
2 Did she already have this obsession before ultra humanite mentored her?
1. I'll leave that to your imagination/interpretation.
2. No spoilers.
I know Young Justice Phantoms focuses on the core characters of Season 1, but how come Roy isn't even a main character in Phantoms? He also played a significant role, just like the other characters (except Rocket).
Ultimately, we only have so much screen time allotted to us. And Will (I assume you were referring to our current Will Harper when you said Roy) isn't really doing the super-hero thing right now. So if we had had, say four more episodes, I suppose we might have done an arc focusing on Bowhunter Security. But we didn't. Still, you got at least a bit of that in the first issue of Young Justice: Targets.
why dont why see the mentors and protÃ©gÃ©s interact like we used to? that was one of the best things about the show imo, i know the second season took the seniors and freshman angle with the team but it wasnt explored with the same depth and then it was cast aside the next season.
It wasn't really cast aside. You specifically saw Nightwing, Superboy and Tigress mentoring Geo-Force, Halo and Forager over and over, in Season Three. Then in Season Four, you saw Superboy and Miss Martian mentoring Beast Boy and J'emm; Tigress mentoring Orphan, Onyx and Cassandra Savage; Zatanna mentoring Thirteen, Khalid and Mary.
It's one of our themes, and we have been fairly darn consistent about it.
Is Steel a fan of Superman? It would seem so based on his red cape and S-shield.
Why did Ocean-Master want to rob Queen Mera of her powers?
I assume you mean int the companion comics, right? The short answer is he wanted to kill her, and if he could kill her AND absorb her magic, then: BONUS!
