"I felt like the New 52 version, rightly or wrongly, was perceived by some people as being too Dr. Manhattan-ish, for lack of a better word. Of course, the irony is that Alan Moore's Dr. Manhattan was his riff on the Charlton Captain Atom. So the characters are inextricably linked. But that said, I think Greg [Weisman] and I both prefer our version from the '80s to some of the things that followed." - Cary Bates

"We felt like the character of Eiling has gotten away from who he was in the '80s, who was this master manipulator. We thought of him as Captain Kirk gone bad. Instead, I feel like he's become this blustering, angry general determined to save the country at all cost. So he'd become more of a Thunderbolt Ross kind of character. And I actually like Thunderbolt Ross in the Hulk, but it wasn't ever who Eiling was. So this allowed us to nuance Eiling back to the kind of character he was." - Greg Weisman

"Back in the '80s, most people don't know this, but the '80s Captain Atom was originally intended to just be a miniseries. They weren't sure about it — they were bringing back some Charlton characters. But sure enough, it got enough of a following that it was ongoing for what? Fifty? Sixty issues? So hopefully it will repeat itself." - Cary Bates

"What Dan DiDio said he was looking for was a way to get the character back to what he called the core concepts of what Greg [Weisman] and I did in the '80s. But it had the stipulation that the starting point had to be the New 52 version of the character." - Cary Bates

"I don't know how politic it is for me to sort of go off on stuff that was done after Cary [Bates] and I left the book, but we were happy to bring him back to the core personality and the core aspects of the character that had made it fun for us, and we think fun for readers way back in those dark ages of the '80s." - Greg Weisman

The Young Justice TV tie in comic was fairly unique insamuch as it works in parallel with the broadcast series. Events from the series were referenced in it and even more unusually plot points from the TV series were revealed or expanded in the comic. (This is probably because the comic was written by Greg Weisman, also the story editor for the series itself and he believes in cross marketing)

Case in point a long time Batman villain who had a new origin, and one which ties into a rather unexpected character; The Daughter of the Demon herself;

"They’re kinda right in my sweet spot. Two guys (best friends) in their late teens with a lot of power and almost zero life experience, trying to find their place in a very real world (in this case college) while simultaneously battling large scale menace. It’s the same kind of themes that interested me in The Spectacular Spider-Man and Young Justice." -- Greg Weisman

'Diversity has always been an important issue to me, going back to "Gargoyles" at least. This is going to be a book with an extremely diverse cast of characters, which is part of the reason I wanted Nightmask to share billing with Starbrand.' -- Greg Weisman

'These are two young men on the cusp of discovering who they are, both as heroes and as human beings. That fits right in with the work I‘ve been doing on [animated] series like “Spectacular Spider-Man” and “Young Justice,” even on “Gargoyles” and “Star Wars Rebels” and “W.I.T.C.H.” It’s just kinda my bread and butter.' -- Greg Weisman

Skipping over number 4, it's a fine issue and you should buy it if you like what you've seen thus far, but I want to get to where the clones finally capture Caleb.

"I want a really long run on this book. There, I said it. Probably jinxed it too. But I'm in it for the long haul, because there's no better way to explore a character." -- Greg Weisman

So since the Mid Season trailer for Rebels came out today I thought we'd come back to our look at the Kanan series.

When last we left off Caleb, as Kanan was known in those days, had just received Obi-wan's message not to return to Coruscant... right as he was emerging from Hyperspace above Coruscant.

The cast of Star Wars Rebels (which is a pretty good show in my estimation), are on their way to pick up supplies for the refugees of Tarkin-town but when Kanan learns the name of the planet they are headed to, Kaller, he has a flashback to the worst day of his life... back when he went under a different name, and was a Jedi Padawan.

This post is serving two purposes

For one thing, it includes the absolute romantic and sexy scene that Dick Grayson has had in a long, long time, so it satisfies the Valentines Day criteria.

And the other reason relates to Young Justice too... sorta )
