Hi Greg. I've been a big fan since the first episode of Gargoyles. :)

I have a couple of questions regarding your wonderful version of the Martians.

1) Do your Martians lay eggs? I remember they did in the Barsoom stories,and their rather reptilian appearance and large families makes me wonder.

2) My second question about identity politics and cultural norms on Mars-16. How common is it for denizens of Mars-16 to adopt a single non-default form as the primary expression of their identity, as M'gann has?

J'onn and B'arzz O'oomm seemed nonplussed by M'gann's choice of form (aside from B'arzz's comment about her passing as Green), so I got the impression that it isn't something that's violating some great taboo. But is such individual self-determination considered odd?

Thank you.

1. No spoilers.

2. It's not unheard of, but fairly uncommon, since their psychic abilities render any false physical form obvious.
