With the recent news, the revised list of missing designations, we know of, are
  1. 27
  2. 28
  3. A-08
  4. A-09
  5. B-28
  6. G-01
  7. G-02
  8. Z-01
  9. Z-02
  10. Z-03
  11. Z-04
New characters we know of currently with unrevealed designations
  1. Spoiler
  2. Metamorpho
  3. Geo-Force
  4. Forager
And with the new Z and G designations. My theory of formalizing the squads, Zeta and Gamma -- perhaps then there could be a D designation, Delta. Naturally, if true, that could open a rabbit hole. When it was all hands on deck in "Endgame" - it was 20 squads. Or perhaps with each new season, a new designation or three...
  1. Alpha
  2. Beta
  3. Gamma
  4. Delta
  5. Epsilon
  6. Zeta
  7. Eta
  8. Theta
  9. Iota
  10. Kappa
  11. Lambda
  12. Mu
  13. Nu
  14. Omicron
  15. Pi
  16. Rho
  17. Sigma
  18. Tau
  19. Psi
  20. Omega
I wonder if that means body horror for the experimented people :ack:?
I wonder, with metahuman trafficking being a main issue - nations, corporations, aliens -- perhaps some or all don't share the same degree of sophistication, funding, what not. And we might see some "disfigured" test subject failures that'll make Bizarro look like Miss America.

ComicBook posted a Comic-Con interview (haven't had a chance to watch it yet).
For anyone having trouble getting the clip to play, here are a few notes:

- Weisman says they knew for sure they would return for Season 3 only 10 days before the official announcement was made.
- They are happy it was a reunion of sorts, with Thomasson and Lemelin returning (among others). Baker mentions that a reunion implies it's only the same people returning, but they have a lot of new characters as well this time.
- Lemelin mentions a lot has changed for her in the 5 years gap. She had 3 children and she can't talk much about Artemis' story-line but she kind of hints there are some parallels with the character and she could draw
a lot from her life. All that takes place in one's life as time passes and the different things you go through in relationships at home or at work. They play with all that on the show.
- Weisman jokes that now people will think Artemis has 3 kids and that she moves pretty quick. Lemelin doesn't confirm anything. Baker adds their entire story-line is Schrodinger's cat - it is and isn't everything.
- Lemelin says Artemis is still mourning Wally's loss.
- Weisman says we should definitely watch Seasons 1 & 2 before starting Outsiders since they will be on the streaming service. We scan watch any one episode of any of the 3 Seasons and still get something out of it since it's a good story, but we would benefit from seeing what happened previously.
- Vietti says they were planting seeds for the direction Season 3 is going into (the Apokolips stuff) from the beginning with the tech they introduced before, like the Sphere. They were hinting all along where they were going, and now they're picking those threads up and going further than before.
- They are always planting seeds for future stories. They have some story plans for Season 4, up to a potential Season 7. Weisman jokes he has a pretty good idea for Season 1,000 and Baker adds it will be a little bit of a time-jump.
- Recommended reading are the "Batman & the Outsiders" comics, especially for the first few episodes. They are doing their Earth-16 version of that story. The Earth-16 designation allows them to riff on the comics instead of sticking to them faithfully. They try to pay respect to characters and story-lines so fans can feel that respect, but can also be surprised. New fans would watch their show and then go back and discover the source material.
- Baker talks about his character. He mentions he's pretty well-versed in DC Comics but he apparently wasn't too familiar with Geo-Force. He's not stressed about it since there haven't really been many iterations of the character. Brion was born into aristocracy. The characters introduced before have chosen to become super-heroes, for Brion it's different since he discovers he has a meta-gene and we'll see his arc.
- They're not going to spoil "a little thing" like Wally's return. His presence is still felt even in his absence. We'll see how the others were affected by his loss. In order to keep the show grounded there is a sense of loss. An important texture to the show and something we can relate to in real life.
- Lemelin doesn't want to spoil much but one of the scripts she read made her cry. It affected her deeply. They're not playing around, really draw from real life and says we'll feel all these things when watching Season 3.
- Weisman mentions he tweeted he likes to make fans cry.

I think we can pretty safely assume that Young Justice will be picked up for more seasons now that it is being put on the streaming service. However, we still have a reason to be nervous because revivals have been brought back for 1 season to wrap things up (i.e. Prison Break), but they have also been brought back to play around with new storyboards and cast and crew (i.e. Family Guy, Futurama).

Are we talking about Artemis the character or Stephanie Lemelin? What makes you think she's pregnant?

I guess she could have had a one-night stand with Dick...
Well, Stephanie Lemelin talked about how she had three kids during the gap between the seasons, and how to some degree she can relate to what Artemis is going through during Outsiders, although I don't think it's a one-to-one comparison :sweat:.

Well, canonically Kid Flash does have children. It may be a bit early to do it in Young Justice and the mother of his children is a civilian in the comics, but they could just be changing it to be Artemis in this universe. Or it could just be a way to bring them in from the future, since Impulse is already on the scene.

Well, during Invasion, I saw some parallels like Lemelin did move to LA to start her acting career and Artemis did move from Gotham to Palo Alto with Wally to start college. Kind of a fish out of water theme, adapting to a new city, making new friends, growing up (?) Brucely, and so on. Pregnant didn't dawn on me even though Lemelin mentioned she now has three children. When I was watching these videos, I figured Lemelin drew from the deaths of close relatives in her family to prepare for the arc of Artemis continuing to grieve for Wally and figure out how to move on.

It's also kind of funny how Wonder Girl and Spoiler were found around the same time, given they will probably still have the same voice actress and both might be interested romantically in Robin.

On a side note, it took me a moment to realize Thirteen's designation - I was reading it as 13-B-29, forgetting that was her name. :p
