In the Earth-16 universe, when did Hawkwman and Hawkwoman first arrived on Earth? Please give an exact date (mm/dd/yyyy), if possible.
Since Saturn Girl, Phantom Girl, and Chameleon Boy were finally able to go home to the 31st century in the Season 4 finale, will the technology from that time period be able to repair the burn damage on Phantom Girl's right hand?

Does yoir answer mean that Jade was still with Roy in YJ Legacy? Because you said that the main reason Jade left him was that she found out she was pregnant and he couldn't focus on them. But here you're saying she fled the Shadows because she realized she was pregnant. Something is not adding up. Does that mean that she left Roy (for whatever reason), joined the Shadows again, AND THEN found out she was pregnant and left them? I apologize if this question comes out as rude. I just want some clarity regarding this topic.
In a flashback, the Outsiders fought against Kobra near a radio tower, but there were no specifics as to where this fight took place on Earth. If this happened somewhere in the United States, can you please give the specific location? Also, can you please tell us what exactly led up to the fight in the first place (because I want to know how the Outsiders found out what Kobra was up to)?
So in a previous response you said "No, there aren't two bodies per character, with one in storage, as in Miracleman. Their bodies are transformed magically when they say, "Shazam!". But when asked about whether he would need to get two cure chips for both Billy and Captain Marvel or just giving Billy one would do the trick, you said "I'm sure they took no chances.". So did the team and justice league give him two cure chips to ensure no possibility of mind control despite only having one would do the trick simply out of paranoia. Can you explain this, I am having a little doubt whether to think of Captain Marvel and Billy as the same physical body or is it more the magical augmentation will also have the control chip in it even after the form disappears. Basically is the health and physical state of Billy Batson(fractures, mind control or just the flu) influence his Captain Marvel form(Captain Marvel having a fracture for instance) and vica versa.
Assuming Jason's personality is the same in the Earth-16 universe as it is in the comics, was he brought into the Team by Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson in the hopes that learning how to be a team player and making friends with others around his age would help get Jason to simmer down on his anger and violent tendencies? Did it actually help Jason to some degree; even though he ultimately died? Also, given his personality, did Black Canary had to talk to Jason a lot in comparison to the other young heroes, and did that frustrate her at times?
If Wonder Girl's father is Zeus in the Earth-16 universe, does that mean all of Zeus' siblings are Wonder Girl's paternal half-aunts and paternal half-uncles, all of Zeus' children are Wonder Girl's paternal half-brothers and paternal half-sisters, and all the children of Zeus' siblings are Wonder Girl's paternal half-cousins?
#1. At the time when he first encountered the Justice Society of America, what was Vandal Savage trying to do, and how did the JSA managed to defeat him?
#2. Aside from Vandal Savage, what other dangerous supervillains did the JSA encountered before they eventually disbanded?
Did Superboy spend much time in Smallville? I got the implication he and the Kents were pretty familiar. Is his connection to Clark as his "brother" known to people outside the team/family?
Arc 3 "Zatanna" ramble
So, this arc is strange to me. In a good way. Lately I've sort of been trying to think of arcs and stories in terms of a core dramatic question. What is the story asking? And what is the answer? Normally to my observation the question is usually asked by the end of the halfway mark of the story, with the answer coming at the end. In some form or another.
This arc is strange because it answers the question before it's even really been properly asked.
So in effect, this story is a Dr. Fate story I think. That was the strongest element to me, that was the most important part, it was certainly the one I actively cared about the most (it's really an arc that's been going on since near the beginning of season 1). The dramatic question as such, is "are Zatanna's students worthy to take up the mantle of Dr. Fate?". But that question isn't *really* asked until the very end of the story after they've dealt with Child. And by that point the question has already, very clearly I'd say, been answered. They are. (except for Mary)
So I really like that element of the story structure, that it sort of works in reverse. Really different.
The Chaos Lord stuff just isn't really my thing, I think is what it comes down to. I like the primordial element, I like the reinterpretation of Klarion, but the body horror and the smug ageless child thing isn't my taste. (It's possible Black Lagoon ruined it for me, though.) But I do really like the mythic elements here, the need for a familiar, the way different familiars manifest. I even sort of like the idea of the Lords of Order and Chaos holding court (sometimes with one another). And I think it's cool that Vandal Savage sort of solved the problem through diplomacy. Though I think his argument was a bit obvious (though I guess it wasn't to the Lords of Chaos).
The mindscape stuff in the middle of the arc was a bit odd to me. Mindscapes have always been a Weisman classic, so I wasn't particularly surprised to see them here. These were pretty effective and at times creepy, but I kind of wish we'd gotten this information in a more traditional way. I think the main thing that threw me off here was the placement of them. They sort of come in the middle of the action, when things are extremely desperate, It's an odd time to take a break to do some character development. In fact the whole pattern of the arc is odd to me. It's almost constant rising of stakes, and then when things are at their most intense, we sort of wander off to focus on some down time. Either meeting Jason Blood, or Dr. Fate, or the stuff with Klarion and the bus.
Then there was the stuff with Zatara. Now, I think partly the purpose of the stuff with Zatara, or my impression of it was to make Zatara less of a prop. Zatara potentially could be nothing more than an objective for Zatanna. She's got to rescue her nice, but unremarkable father from despotic forces. I think that's a good intention, but again came in at an odd time in the story. It also sort of muddled the through line of the storytelling in a way I wasn't the biggest fan of.
Because ultimately, while I think I'd argue it is a Zatanna, Dr. Fate Zatara story, I'm not sure it's important to really understand Zatara beyond the fact that Zatanna cares about him. And I don't really begrudge the storytelling that indulgence, I'm not an essentialist the way some people are, but I just think this story already has so many characters and subplots going on it winds up just being another layer to contextualize and care about and the show is already asking a lot. It didn't need to work this hard to make me care about Zatara, or to explain Zatara. I already care about Zatara and Zatanna.
The religious elements too, I think I'm not sure what to think of. I'm not a religious person, and Christianity in particular makes me very uncomfortable. So the shot of Nabu and Zatara facing off with an Ankh and a cross behind them made me chuckle a bit. Just because it reminded me of a narmy 70s comic cover (was it based on a cover actually?). But I think religion is a *very* big topic, and it's hard to kind of compartmentalize in this sort of story. Like, for me, what's important about Khalid's story isn't his relationship with magic, or with god, but his relationship with his mother. Which there isn't time or space to explore because of how ambitious this arc is. So it kind of just gets boiled down to him feeling pressure to choose something, and him deciding he doesn't have to choose. And I wish we got more context for that. Though there's an obvious irony in him being pressured into becoming a doctor and ending up as doctor fate, obviously. I'm less enamored with that now a few months later than I was when I watched it, but I still appreciate it.
One other thing I wanna comment on, because I've seen this criticism that this isn't really Zatanna's story. Which I suppose is true. I've seen this idea put forth by a lot of youtubes and film critic-type people, the idea of sort of the want/need and the core narrative of a character. Like because Zatanna doesn't transform, or learn something, or realize an unrealized need it's not her story. She knows what she wants at the beginning of the arc, and she knows how she wants to get it. And things just kind of... fall into place after that and she gets what she wants, the story wouldn't really have been that different if Zatanna had just knocked on Dr. Fate's door and had a conversation with him about cycling hosts. Which means perhaps the story is less dynamic and connected than it could be, but I don't think that's a *problem* necessarily.
Because ultimately the transformation is Dr. Fate's. This is a story about Dr. Fate. And I think that's good. Your P.O.V. character or protagonist doesn't necessarily need to be the character to whom things are happening.
It's interesting because I think this is also *very* reflected in Kaldur's arc.
I've rewritten this like 4 times to try and make it sound as constructive and not negative as possible, and I think I failed miserably at that, but there *is* a lot I liked about this arc. It's generally stuff that's just... always good, though. The characters are well drawn out, the conflicts are endearing, the story's creative, the global scope was impressive. It wasn't petty, it felt like everything was consequential. I still love this show's take on doctor fate *a lot*. I liked that we got a resolution to the Dr. Fate arc that started so many years ago.
So... yeah, I liked it. The Kaldur arc was my favourite of the season, though, so I'm looking forward to writing that ramble.
Spectacular Spider-Man is one of my most favourite shows and it sucks it only got 2 seasons. I read online that you wanted it to have 5 seasons so how come it got cancelled and is there any hope of it getting at least 1 more season ?
1) Does the supervillain named Metallo exist in Earth-16?
2) Does the female supervillain named Giganta exist in Earth-16?
3) Does the alien supervillain named Sinestro exist in Earth-16 and was a former member of the Green Lantern Corps who went rogue and became one of their enemies?
4) Does the supervillain named Solomon Grundy exist in Earth-16?
5) Does the supervillain named Tar Pit (Joey Monteleone) exist in Earth-16?
6) Does the Supervillain Team called the Royal Flush Gang exist in Earth-16?
Going through the "Unanswered Questions," I noticed that there are a few people who are getting things mixed up with the possible relationships between Bruce Wayne and his other family members in the Kane family tree in Earth-16 universe. To settle the matter once and for all, can you please confirm if the following information below is correct?
#1. From Bruce Wayne's point of view, his maternal cousins are Kate Kane, Beth Kane, and Bette Kane. His maternal uncles would therefore be Jacob Kane (Kate's and Beth's father) and Bette's unnamed father.
#2. From Kate Kane's and Beth Kane's point of view, their paternal cousins are Bruce Wayne and Bette Kane. Their paternal aunt would therefore be Martha Wayne (Bruce's mother), and their paternal uncle would therefore be Bette's unnamed father.
#3. From Bette Kane's point of view, her paternal cousins are Kate Kane, Beth Kane, and Bruce Wayne. Her paternal aunt would therefore be Martha Wayne (Bruce's mother), and her paternal uncle would therefore be Jacob Kane (Kate's and Beth's father).
I have a question about Young Justice's "Endgame."
1. Why didn't Hawkman say something to defend Shayera? Idk it just seems kind of out of character for him not to say anything at all.
Does superboy feel responisble for garfield's beakup with up with queen perditia after all garfield believe he cause conner to die ?
This isn't really a serious question and I hope this wouldn't be something too spoiler-y, but since returning to 1997, have Brooklyn and/or Gnash ever sat down whenever a new show/episode comes on for the first time saying that it's a classic much to Lex and Broadway's confusion like the Marty McFly meme?
I remember the statement that Mars has an overpopulation issue. Approximately how big is the Martian population in 2020(a.k.a. Team Year Ten)?

Hey Mr. Weisman.
I just wanted to let you know that I am going to keep on giving my support to save Young Justice.
Is Nightwing related to the Crownes on Earth-16?
Hi, Greg. I'm from Brazil, so, sorry for any misspelling (English is still my second language and i speak, listen and read more than I write). A few questions after watching season 4 of Young Justice:
1- Tim and Steph looked very cudly on the wedding scene. Was that an indication that they're together now?
2- If Ollie is broke since season 1, how did he still used all those trick arrows? The League? Bruce? I'm considering its something expensive and that i can't just buy on a regular sporting goods shop
3- I remember Rocket talking about Orion as Darkseid's child. Since there wasn't any (at least seen) conflict between the heroes and Darkseid, do they know about him because of the conflict at the orphanage? They've been doing some digging? Reports from the GL Corps? I assume they know everything about Granny Goodness, at least, and there was that conflict in Season 1 involving Desaad, but i could be forgetting something and don't believe any Darkseid loyalist would rat on him
Those were the questions. Thank u for your time. Hoping for a season 5 and, if not, that whatever new product you develop be as awesome as spectacular spidey, gargoyles and YJ (just need to finish gargoyles on Disney Plus)
1. In the House of El family tree, Kal-El and Kara Zor-El would be PATERNAL cousins because their respective fathers, Jor-El and Zor-El, are brothers. However, what would be Kara's exact relationship with both Kon-El and Johnny Kent; even though they are also likely PATERNAL?
2. In the Kane family tree, Bruce Wayne would the MATERNAL cousin of Kate Kane and Bette Kane; while Kate Kane and Bette Kane would be the PATERNAL cousins of Bruce Wayne. Both cases are because Bruce's mother, Kate's father, and Bette's father are siblings. However, what would be Kate's and Bette's exact relationship with Bruce's and Talia's son, Damian?
PS. I understand if you might get put off with questions associated with PATERNAL and MATERNAL relationships, but I'm just trying to make sure of the accuracy of such familial relationships in the Earth-16 universe; in comparison to the character's counterparts in the mainstream DC Universe (New Earth/Prime Earth).
Will we ever see the Earth-16 version of the location known as Skartaris (a hollow world inhabited by various prehistoric creatures and mythical creatures)?
What would've happened if the Rimbor 6 remembered what they did?

Imagine if one of The Simpsons' future Treehouse of Horror specials were to have a segment that's a parody of Young Justice (TV Series) do you and Brandon think that would be interesting?
How did garfield logan travel to the location were the doom patrol members died when he finds out they have died? How soon after the doom patrol members died did Garfield start living with miss martian at mount justice?
I've just checked the Archives and I couldn't find the answer to this question... Which year did Steve Dayton take custody of Garfield Logan and cause him to leave the Team? Was it Team Year Six, or Team Year Seven?
I have read on the internet that you also want a fifth season of "Young Justice" and you are encouraging the fans to rally in order to save the show. However, what if that is NOT enough? Let me give you two examples of similar situations:
Example #1: Ruby Rose, who portrayed Kate Kane in the now-canceled CW TV series, "Batwoman," left the show after its first season. Caroline Dries, the showrunner, initially wanted to recast the character, but then she decided NOT to after she received some advice from Greg Berlanti. Fans demanded that Kate Kane be recasted, and then they became upset when Kate Kane was replaced by an original character named Ryan Wilder. This action caused Kate Kane fans to believe that Caroline Dries was disrespecting the Batwoman source material. Kate Kane would eventually revealed to be recast midway through the show's second season, but by the end of the second season finale, she left again; much to the disappointment of the Kate Kane fans. Essentially, had Caroline Dries listened to the fans and recast Kate Kane right away (as opposed to replacing her with an original character), the show would not have been so terrible and would not have ended up being canceled after its third season.
Example #2. After Chadwick Boseman died in 2020, Kevin Feige announced that he would NOT recast T'Challa in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Those who wanted the character recast started an online petition which gathered a very large number of signatures. However, when the first trailer and the movie synopsis for "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever" came out during Comic-Con 2022, it was revealed that T'Challa was permanently killed off. I have seen some very angry reactions on Twitter as a result of this. The idea of T'Challa being killed off in the MCU is utterly ridiculous/disgraceful because it robs us of watching his further character development and the relationships/connections that he made with the other characters in the MCU.
The point of me addressing these examples to you is to clearly show that ever since COVID-19 hit the United States, I have observed that people in the movie and television industries do NOT appear to listen to the comic book fans at all; since they cannot go outside and publicly protest on things such as this. These days, such people appear to stick by their decisions and don't seem to care what other people think. As such, I fear that HBO Max will be just the same, and "Young Justice" will likely be officially canceled; despite the efforts of the fans.
Quick question regarding the Genomorphs: I know Superboy, Red Arrow, and Guardian were created using the DNA of Superman and Speedy respectively, but what DNA was used to make the other six Genomorph types, such as the G-Goblins, G-Gnomes, G-Trolls, G-Elves, G-Dwarves, and G-Sprites?
I have a few questions regarding Clark and Loisâ relationship:
1. When did they first meet?
2. When did Lois learn Clark was Superman?
3. When did they get married?
4. When they got married, is Loisâ surname Lane, Kent, or Lane-Kent?

Why is it that Miss Martian's bridesmaids dresses are all red but yet they aren't wearing the same kind of dress compared to Superboy's groomsmen who are all wearing identical suits to that of the grooms? Is it to kinda represent the bride and groom in a way, considering how Conner doesn't wear anything else besides his usual clothes and almost nothing else?
I only recently noticed the tag necklace around Tye Longshadowâs neck. Does it have any significance and if so, where did Tye get them from?
Hi Greg !
1. Has Shiva ever tried to kill Barbara, or hurt her in any way for taking her daughter away from her ?

How long on average is the script for an episode of Young Justice (in pages)? Also, out of curiosity, how long was the script for an average episode of Gargoyles?
Since YJ is cancelled can you reveal all the designations?
So I'm hearing that HBO Max NOT having any plans for a fifth season of "Young Justice does NOT necessary means that the show has been canceled. However, in my honest opinion, I feel that this is HBO Max's cowardly attempt to refuse to admit the truth about the show's cancellation. If true, it would not be the first time something like this has happened. Back in 2020, The CW did a backdoor pilot for "Green Arrow and the Canaries," which was supposed to be a spin-off of "Arrow." During that year, I occasionally read on the internet that a decision was still being made. Then, in January 2021, it was announced that "Green Arrow and the Canaries" was not picked up by the CW. It was later revealed that month that the spin-off was decided not to be picked up the moment that COVID-19 hit the United States. Essentially, The CW had LIED to its viewers and hid the truth for a full year. So, if HBO Max won't admit the truth that "Young Justice" is cancelled, it probably won't end up well for the fanbase if the truth ultimately comes out months or a year later, and that would make HBO Max just as bad as The CW. I truly hope you have a contingency plan to save "Young Justice" if this ends up being true.
What happened to Hawkman and Hawkwoman's wing colors? They both turned grey after season 2.
I just had a question regarding Meta-humans. Is the term meta-human reserved only for those who carry the meta-gene or is it used for anyone who manages to gain superpowers?

How old is Forager during Team Year Ten?
How old is Green Lantern Forager during Team Year Ten?
First off I want to thank you for creating this amazing show called Gargoyles it was a big part of my childhood watched it a lot an are currently binge watching it on Disney Plus but I know you donât own it anymore but I wanted to get your thoughts on how awesome it would be to see this show become a live action film or show? I think it would be badass but if not I would still like to see the cartoon show start back up I just think with Disney doing all these live action movies to add Gargoyles to that would be amazing and do really well it has a great story amazing characters who wouldnât want to see that come to life in a major motion picture! I know I would only if it was done right a kept the same storyline start off in Middle Ages tell their story there then bring them to the city Iâve been thinking about it a lot lol but just wanted to get your thoughts since you created it!
1) Does Green Lantern Forager have a designation, since she was on the Watchtower in "Zenith and Abyss"?
2) Does the Kaizer-Thrall/Danny Chase have a designation, since he was on the Watchtower in "Zenith and Abyss"? He is sentient (and this was known to GL Forager before she brought him to the Watchtower) so I wonder whether he was given a designation when he arrived on the Watchtower, despite appearing to be a floating box to those who did not know him.
3) If Green Lantern Forager and/or Kaizer Thrall/Danny Chase were given designations on this occasion, what are their designations (if you would not mind revealing them, please)? We know that the next designations were A-50 (J'emm J'axx) and A-51 (Phantom Girl), so it seems likely that one or both of the preceding designations (A-48 and A-49) went to GL Forager and/or KT/Danny Chase if they were given Zeta access. Of course, I can't be sure of this since access may have been overriden for them as it was for Cheshire in "Artemis Through the Looking Glass". But I thought this might be worth asking about! :)
What was the inspiration behind Hawkwoman and Hawkman's accents?
