I have a few questions...

1) How old is Killer Frost?

2) Is Captain Atom composed of living nuclear energy like in the comics or does he have a real flesh and blood body under his containment suit? I only ask because during the Failsafe episode he was depicted wearing an oxygen mask in space like the other JLA heavy hitters, suggesting he needs to breathe and thus must have a corporeal body on Earth 16 unlike in his other cartoon & comic appearances.

3) Is Miss Martian really Martian Manhunter's niece? I'm not curious about her Martian racial background etc (I know there's still some secrecy circulating around her yet to be revealed & I respect that), I'd just like to know if she's really related to the Martian Manhunter, i.e. that part of her origin is officially canon & not a mystery to be unraveled. My apologies in advance if this question counts as spoilers.

Greg responds...

1. Twenty-seven.

2. Captain Atom was NOT composed of living nuclear energy in the comics I wrote with Cary Bates in the eighties and early nineties. (I don't know what they've done since.) We've followed the original template that Cary and I used. There's no containment suit. That's a coating of alien metal covering his flesh and blood body. And, yes, he does need to breathe.

3. According to Red Arrow, who got his information from Black Canary, who in turn got it from Martian Manhunter, she is.
