While I'm not much of a DC Comics reader (my taste in comics runs more towards Carl Barks and Don Rosa's "Donald Duck" stories, "Peanuts", "Prince Valiant", and the "Doctor Who" comics put out by first IDW, then Titan Books, than conventional super-hero comics), I recently discovered, and rather like, the "Gotham Academy" series. And I wondered yesterday whether its characters might show up in Season Three of "Young Justice", now that we know it's going to be made.

I do know that Greg Weisman hasn't read it (because somebody asked him about it at "Ask Greg"), and it seems to have come out after "Young Justice" ended (temporarily), so it wouldn't have featured in the brainstorming plans he and the rest of the production team might have had about Season Three before they learned that the show wouldn't be renewed after Season Two - and I doubt that those would have changed much. Which makes it less likely that elements from "Gotham Academy" will have a prominent role in the third season.

I certainly don't see Olive, Maps, and the rest becoming members of the Team, even without those factors. But I wonder if it's possible that they could wind up making cameos, like Wendy and Marvin in the first season of "Young Justice". (Just don't ask Greg about it; I'm sure it violates the "no ideas masquerading as questions" rule.)

Oh man, three years of guessing and speculation. I can only imagine what we've got ahead of us and what got right or wrong.

One thing which we'll probably see in Season Three - and which I suspect a lot of people will be looking forward to: as I recall, the end of the second season of "Young Justice" revealed that the Light and Darkseid had teamed up. I'd be surprised if that wasn't a major element of the third season.

It's been a while since I post, but the occasion calls for it! CONGRATULATIONS! "YOUNG JUSTICE" HAS BEEN RENEWED FOR A SEASON 3! :D :D :D

Man, I'm really happy, but a little sad, too. :( Don't me wrong, though, I'm so happy that YJ got renewed, but I'm sad, that despite so many years has passed since "Gargoyles" ended (TV and canon comics), it still hasn't been picked up. I really hope we can "Gargoyles" on television again, and in comic book format, too. Maybe, one day, hopefully soon.

Well, I really look forward to watching YJ again in the near future! :)


I'm happy for Greg (and Brandon and all the fans). Congratulations!

Like Matt, Young Justice wasn't my thing (#MakeMineMarvel), but every cancelled show that gets revived gives me hope, as does every success for Greg W. Maybe someday we'll see new original Gargoyles stories again. Joe Books?

Don't let up, folks! #KeepBingingYJ for Season 4!
I am longing to be with you, and by the sea, where we can talk together freely and build our castles in the air.

To be honest, I really didn't see it returning, because it seemed unrealistic, but the campaigning proved triumphant.

The fans deserve a big share of the credit too with pushing the binge campaign on Netflix. It's nice to see a fan-driven TV series resurrection that doesn't rely on Kickstarter. WB is confidently putting the production money up front.

It is absolutely impossible to render my reaction into words.

But it would involve a whole lot of expletives shouted joyously at the top of my god**** lungs.

Greg. Brandon. The rest of the cast and crew who are ready and raring to reassemble.

Congratulations. And THANK YOU.

Never The End!!! :D

I'm very happy right now, so much so I feel a great sense content. Like a little bit of Nirvana just came down graced me.

Wow. I'm not the biggest Young Justice fan. I enjoyed all the episodes (particularly the second season) and rewatched them all again on Netflix, but I wasn't one of those begging for a third season.

That said, I'm really happy for Greg and the rest of the cast and crew and especially for the diehard fans. This must be very exciting for them!

I'll be sure to watch what happens next. Now, if we can just have Netflix take a look at Gargoyles...

NEILL> Sorry for not waiting til the end of the countdown but...

Unfortunately, thanks to having been unable to get an Arizona identification card when I moved to Phoenix from St. Louis last year (the one time I went down to the offices to get one, I turned out to have brought the wrong version of my birth certificate with me, and I never managed to make another trip - it doesn't help that the offices are outside walking distance and I don't have a car), I'm afraid that I won't be able to vote in this year's general election. I truly regret that, and hope that next election, I'll have managed to straighten things out.

Less than FOURty-eight hours to go...we're almost through this. (And hopefully will never have to go through anything like it again.)

I'm rather tempted to make a crack about voting THIRD-party after that, Masterdramon...but I shall refrain.

My state's looking like it's gonna be a fight.

TWO days (well, one day and change) until what is quite possibly the most important election in modern American history.

To all my fellow American citizens: whatever your political stripe or affiliation, whether you're keyed into every new development in the news cycle or normally couldn't care less...

Please, for the love of all that is holy and unholy, turn out on Tuesday and vote.

We've only got one shot at this.

Well, well looks like I'm FIRST.
