Creator Profile: Greg Weisman by Jerry Whitworth
An editor, producer, and writer, Greg Weisman has worked in what seems like almost every area of animation save drawing it himself. Weisman has even found time while taking animation by storm to work in the comic book industry, having penned Captain Atom and Young Justice and developed series for Red Tornado and Black Canary that would later be adapted in other ways. It’s hard to say what exactly Weisman is best known for: likely most of his career could be pointed towards his cult-followed Disney’s Gargoyles run, but in recent years he’s also worked to much acclaim on the series Spectacular Spider-Man and Young Justice (not to, of course, discount his input for W.I.T.C.H., Max Steel, and various other programs). One thing is clear, when Weisman creates a show, he doesn’t make it for children; no, he makes a show for all-ages, something many equate to be one and the same. But, if the results Weisman and company have achieved are any indication, it’s that making a show either an adult or child can enjoy watching is not only possible, but it can be done time and again.Read More
Young Justice: Who is the Traitor?
by Jerry Whitworth
One of the major plot points of the first season of Young Justice has been who on the Team is the traitor. It’s brought to the attention of the audience every few episodes and lengths have been taken to cast doubt on several members of the group. But, who is it? Well, time will reveal the truth, but lets see if we can’t sort through the facts. It should be noted, the addition of members like Zatanna, Sphere/Super-Cycle, Wolf, and Red Arrow largely identify they can’t be the traitors because they came on the Team after the reveal of a traitor.
ARTEMIS: Daughter of super-villains Sportsmaster and Huntress, her father and sister Cheshire are both part of the League of Shadows, assassins working for Ra’s al Ghul of the season’s primary antagonists the Light. Considering her lineage, it’s a given she’s the spy. And yet, for this reason, she can’t be; too obvious. In the episode “Insecurity” it’s all but confirmed she’s not the traitor as her father tries to convince her to work with him. ODDS: 100-1.Read More
