- Advanced Idea Mechanics
Interesting. I wonder if, had the show gone on uninterrupted back in the early 2010s, it would've altered the plans Beware the Batman had for its own version of the Outsiders. I'm not sure if DC would've allowed two versions of the same team, but I could be wrong.-12:38: Greg confirms generally Outsiders was the season 3 they envisioned from early years. Some details that changed were the refugee crisis, the plan for Beast Boy, and use of social media.
I think it's probably the best of their Young Justice Audio Plays and probably my second favorite overall (first being the Spectacular Spider-Man/Gargoyles crossover). Pretty good for something that had to work with little time and so many limitations.-17:15: The audio play came from a desire to get some new material out there, were initially asked to set it during season 4 to which they declined but felt a prequel to was fair game so they could throw in hints and easter eggs. Contrary to how it's normally done, they had to figure out which actors were available on FanDome then write the lay, started from a list of 14 actors, then broke basics of story with Brandon Vietti, had little time to write it so he stayed up even later than he already does
It was long overdue. Her inviting Roy back into the Team also immediately won me over her leadership.-27:38: Tigress becoming the new leader of the Team felt organic after Batgirl was for a time and after Miss Martian and everyone in the Anti-Light stepping back from being leaders and going back to being soldiers. At this point, Tigress is imminently qualified to be the leader. Artemis is 25 years old in season 4.
