Hi Greg! Hope production is going smoothly.
My question concerns a moment from "Triptych," where we see Orphan slice 'Jervis Tetch' in half, who is then revealed to be Clayface. Arrowette responds to these actions with: "Did you know Tetch was really Clayface, or did you just not care?"
I was intrigued by this for a couple of reasons, given the fact that I'm a huge fan of Cass Cain. This scene brought two major elements of her character to mind.
First, the fact that Cass' whole backstory comes from the fact that she was raised to be a weapon in service of the League of Assasins. She wasn't taught to speak or read, just to kill. But when she took her first life, the terror in the man's eyes drove her away from her father David Cain, and eventually into the arms of Batman and her new family. But her dark past meant that Cass would NEVER take another life, and atoned for it every day as Batgirl and later Black Bat (and Orphan, in the new continuity). Because of this, I wondered as to why Arrowette would question Cass' lack of concern for Tetch's life.
But that brings to mind the second thing I thought of. As 'the One who is All,' Cass was raised to read people's actions through microexpressions and such. This means she could've easily recognized that Tetch wasn't who he appeared to be, if these comic book elements of her backstory were canon to Earth-16.
I don't want to ask anything that's too specifically spoilery, so I'll ask only this: when attempting to dig down to the core elements of Orphan's character, were these main values present in your minds, or were you going for a radically different interpretation of the character?
Thanks for your time! Hope to see more of Orphan in Season 4.
In light of the end of "Outsiders", will you update the designations list in light of the new characters? Also, was Metamorpho a member of the Justice League?
how stoked are you that Gargoyles is going to be on Disney+?
Hi Greg Weisman,
First of all I love Young Justice, it's what made me get into animation in the first place. I have a question about one thing. Since that the show is taking some real life views, it made me wonder, did the 9/11 attacks occur in 2001?
I hope that when Season 4 of Young Justice comes around, I hope that Batman will say the following words at least once on the show: "Because I'm Batman."
Please make sure it will happen and I will be forever grateful to you.
Thank you! :)
1. Prior to the modern-day incarnation, how were previous members of Vandal Savage's Light usually chosen?
2. Because Vandal Savage is immortal, could it be assumed that he knows certain truths in human history that no one else even knows about?
During Vandal Savage's time as Genghis Khan, what were the names of his two meta-human sons and what ultimately happened to them?
In regards to Vandal Savage in the Young Justice animated universe:
1. In the time before the meteor arrived on Earth, was he part of a clan or tribe, or did he live his entire life alone.
2. Did he ever called the cave bear who attacked him by name? If so, what was the cave bear's name? Ursus?
3. How and when did he ultimately decided to permanently go by the name Vandal Savage?
4. Did he ever attempted to solve the mystery of the meteor's origins?
In the Young Justice animated universe, is Steel's secret identity John Henry Irons?
Hi Greg! Once again, thanks for the amazing show that is Young Justice. I wanted to ask a few more questions about the show I adore.
1. How old are Traya, Anissa, and Jennifer?
2. Was there any debate between the writers, producers, and actors over how to pronounce Lian? (I know some people including myself pronounced it as LeeAnn, and sometimes say that)
3. If it was Cadmus policy to delete the source material, how come they kept Roy alive and frozen instead?
4. How did Mal and Karen discover Conner's and Megan's real identities, or is that something we might see later?
5. What's your response and feeling when people come up to you and say that the show (or even Gargoyles) helped them during a difficult time, maybe even saved them from suicide?
