1. I've been wondering...Earth has several cultures, so are there any other planets with multiple cultures?

Are Ben and Julie truly over? (I was rather disappointed with their "break-up" -- getting Julie, who had put up with Ben's ego and flings, out of the way for more romantic interests. Sort of like Gwen Stacy's death in the Spiderman comics, to make room for Mary Jane. It takes Ben all but five seconds to get over it and start flirting with Ester LOL.) 

Anyway I loved Julie, hopefully this won't be the last we see of the Japanese-American.

at the end credits of AF/UA there are usually 3 storyboard artists credited, does that mean each artist was assigned 1 act or are they assigned specific scenes?

2. Can Will Harangue blackmail people?

Why are the quotes messed up? The stuff below is me (Matt):


1. I think I've said elsewhere that "What Are Little Girls Made Of?" is a favorite, although I thought "Store 23" was great. My least favorite was probably "Kevin's Big Score," not because of the end result--it's a really good episode--but because I had to redo the first act to make the action more to the point.

2. Sure. He's on TV, that's a big lever.

1. No, I went form Dwayne's edit of the outline.

2. Juliet Landau made Gwen's mom much more unhappy than she was written (I just wrote her as a hard-ass). It's brilliant, and really paints a picture of Gwen's home life.

3. Marty wrote a great one-off that will air several episodes from now. No idea if that's soon.

4. We care about the millions of casual viewers more than the thousands diehard fans. That's TV for you. But we do like to foil expectations for both.

5. Noted.




mace23 wrote:Did you need a story meeting to write "Good Copy, Bad Copy" or did you just run with it based on the outline?

Were there any noticeable differences between how your AF episodes came out versus your UA episodes(such as the directors surprising you, voicing)?

Is Marty Isenberg just reserved to write the finales or is he going to write a one off episode soon?

How important is it to give the fanbase what they don't want or except?

This is just my opinion, but I find OV too linear and tell all, like I know too much about the aliens rather then imagining what I don't know, there's not much mystery in world or stories from the episodes I did see.


Also, thank you for all the questions you have answered, don't feel like I've said this enough, you've been very generous with your time

I don't know what to say. Your state of mind should not depend on internet rumors about a TV show. Even a great one.

And Dwayne wasn't fixated on Charmcaster's redemption, either. He liked the idea of villains with human foibles. As do we all.

That said, I'm sure we'll be discussing this again very soon!



FutureFighter wrote:Mr. Wayne, I heard you and the other writers finally found a way to incorporate Charmcaster in to Omniverse.  Derrick Wyatt seems to claim that her backstory and motives that Dwayne established for her will be "ignored" and yet not erased, while a tweet by Khary Payton indicates she's "crazy" now.  

So my question is will she be still kept a gray-shaded, developing character with a story arc, with her being crazy treated sympathetically, and with an endgame for her in mind....or are you going to throw all that out and make this another black-and-white kiddie show issue and have her as a 1-note psycho villain to get beat up by the heroes, with no help from any of them in getting back to sanity (some heroes!) and no hope of a better future despite her freaking name being Hope?  

I really hope it's not the latter, or you'll have officially written "Where the Magic Happens" for nothing and destroyed Dwayne's favorite character, not to mention written what amounts to an innocent child growing up experiencing parental death, loss of home, guardian abuse, emotional turmoil, and being used for a one-night stand, then being blamed for it all when she snaps. I don't know about you, but I don't find that fun.  I find it depressing.  I don't watch cartoons for that. Sad

Yes, there are certainly planets with more than one sentient species, and we have seen subcultures as well (Merks and Perks, for instance.)

Never say never, but not for a while. He's sixteen; it's a bit early to meet the love of his life.

Usually, it's one storyboard artist assigned to each act, with the teaser tacked onto the shortest act. But who gets what and even how many artists are boarding a show vary a lot depending on schedule, the scale of the show and the tastes of the director.

Was your work on Superhero Squad done before being asked to work on UA ?

When writing your episode of Scooby Doo, were you working with George Doty IV or Jim Kreig?

Any chance you'll be writing for Beware The Batman?

Favorite season of Cheers and MASH?

1. No, "Where the Magic Happens" and "It's Not Easy Being Gwen" were both written while I was editing SHS season 2.

2. Jim Krieg had left the show but recommended me to Ed Scharlach, who was co-story editing with George Doty.

3. If Ben 10 ever ended, I'd inquire.

4. Three in both cases. In many sitcoms, the third season is the best written. By then, the key writers have hit their stride, but haven't yet been lured away to new shows.

How do you feel about flashbacks in Ben 10 canon? I believe it's a mistake to reconcile any of the continuities, it doesn't satisfy any fanbase, same goes for the cameos

How do you feel generally about the flashbacks done so far in Ben 10 canon (ex Solitary Alignment, Ben 10,000 Returns, Vendetta)?

Have you ever seen The Batman ? if so your opinion on it

Favorite Looney Tunes short?

Is story editing OV a comparable to your experience story editing SHS, considering your aiming for a similar demographic?

Did you ever ask Dwayne to take a crack at writing Superhero Squad?

AF/UA had a couple of weird Scooby Doo references, the Meddling Kids line, The abandoned circus and scattered appearances of background characters that look suspiciously like Shaggy and Scooby throughout the show, was this an in joke by the crew or is it just me thinking too hard?

1. I'm fine with flashbacks. We don't do them to satisfy the fans or reconcile the continuities, we do them when we think they tell the story we want to tell in that episode.

2. Just fine. Moonstruck too.

3. Yes, and I like it quite a bit. I first became aware of Michael Jelenic on that show, he's one of the best writers out there.

4. Probably Rabbit Fire, but I'm not the Chuck Jones fan I was once. I've seen a lot of the Chuck Jones Tom and Jerry shorts now, and seeing his style misfire so much makes me more aware of it when it works. I'm kind of surprised these days at my affection for the Friz Freleng Bugs/Yosemite Sam shorts, Knighty Knight Bugs and the Revolutionary War one.

5. Not at all. I feel that SHS was a bunch of people with different agendas making the best show they could as they saw it. On Ben 10 we're all pulling in similar directions.

6. (1 beyond the new limit) We talked about it, but Ben always got renewed and he never needed the work.

7. (2 beyond the new limit) Both, actually. The Scooby references will only get more obvious in coming months. But you are giving the subject more thought then I'd expect.

2. I didn't mention Moonstruck because it answered a question I don't think most fans would normally cared to wondered or asked about, stuff like Kevin's past and the creation of the omnitrix are such easy targets that fans want answered. Moonstruck felt unique in that respect

4. Surprised you didn't say What's Opera Doc, that's always on top of most people's list, even CN aired it as #1 in a marathon a few years ago, I'd probably go with Ali Baba Bunny it's such a memorable one since I was a kid

7. Is it wrong for me to also notice the similar color scheme and some similarities between Kevin's Car and The Mystery Machine, Team Ben and The Scooby Gang both travel at night in places they shouldn't, Freddy and Daphne = Kevin and Gwen, okay the last one is DEFINITELY overthinking
