Hey Greg,
Hey Mr. Weisman,

I've got some quick questions about Young Justice. If these questions accidentally expose a potential spoiler, I sincerely apologize.

a. In regards to Wolf's tears and exposed muscles (as a result of being exposed to Kobra Venom), will they eventually heal overtime, or is the damage permanent?

b. In "Failsafe" Superboy expressed shock, and perhaps interest, when he learns about Superman's Fortress of Solitude. In your opinion, do you believe that he will ever get the opportunity to visit it?

c. In the same above mentioned episode, why is Superman wearing a oxygen mask? I could have sworn that recent comics (prior to the DC relaunch) show he was able to breathe in space. With that in mind, what version of the comics is the Young Justice version of Superman based on? (Golden Age? Silver Age?)

d. I understood that the first new series regular was introduced into The Team about halfway through the season (Isn't that about episode 13 or so?), but who is it exactly? If it was Wolf or Sphere, I apologize for not taking either of them into account.

e. Without needing to spoil any identities whatsoever, and in your opinion, what is the maximum number of members of The Team you are trying to aim for? To be more specific, how many males and females are there going to be?

f. The costumes of the characters portrayed thus far seems to appear to be just like those worn by characters prior to DC relaunch. In your opinion, do you think we will be able see any costumes based on those worn by characters since the start of the DC relaunch?

Thanks, and keep those episodes coming!!

a. You're assuming it's damage.


c. Superman of Earth-16 cannot breathe in the vacuum of space. No one can. Some entities may not require oxygen to live. Superman does.

c2. He's not 'based' on any single version of anything.

d. Sphere was introduced in episode 109. Wolf in episode 113. What exactly are you asking? Through episode 118, we still only have the original six regulars on the series.


f. All our character costumes are art directed by Brandon Vietti and redesigned/reconceived by Phil Bourassa based on the needs/tone/etc. of our series with a mind to what is iconic about any individual character's look. That won't change.
