Hi Greg, big fan of your work, and i think Spectacular Spiderman and Young Justice are some of the finest superhero shows ever made. I have 2 questions regarding the light if you would indulge me. I know if its too spoilerish, that you won't say, and i understand that. Still, any kind of clue that you can give would satisfy me ^^

1) Was the light created by L-1 aka Vandal Savage? If you cant say, could at least say if it was one of member (you don't have to tell me which ^^) that did? Or if it was a coincidence? Or a series of events that lead to their evil unions? To me at least, Savage seems to be in charge, whether officially the leader or not. So i'm thinking he might have recruited the other 6, as they definitively come from such diverse backgrounds and styles. Which by the way, is that what i love about the group. That diversity and the possibilities they have as a team, which i think you showcased very well with the Injustice League too. To quote Count Vertigo: "stunning, what our little teamwork can accomplish."
2) Was the decision to give Vandal Savage his face scars, a nod to your Gargoyle fans (if so, VERY cool), or is there more behind it? A plot twist or maybe just some cool backstory? Either way, it's a nice touch.

Greg responds...

1. I like to think it began with a conversation between old friends Savage and al Ghul. I have no idea what you mean by "a coincidence". Like the seven of them happened to walk into the same super-villain hide-out on the same day?

2. Cave bear. (And, no, it has nothing to do with Gargoyles. It was Phil Bourassa's idea.)
