Scott Lobdell Answers Your Questions: 10/5/12

The answers you've been waiting for are finally here.

Last month, Scott Lobdell asked for your questions. Questions were chosen and they were answered. He mentioned he would answer five. Seven were actually selected and six were actually answered. But when you watch Scott's video response, you'll notice the discrepancy in number. Let's just say Scott sort of said a couple things he shouldn't say just yet. DC asked for them to be removed and of course we'll all cooperate.

It's a shame those two questions were cut. They were juicy ones too. Maybe next time.

Do you want to see more of Scott answering your questions?

Fav author, due to the fact that of the three comics i first got: JL1, TT1 and Static1, Teen Titans stuck out the most to me. It also helps my comic book store was behind on JL comics.

Love Lobdell his run with the X men was awesome, Loved Generation X it was my favorite title of all time. I read Red Hood just because of him, so im strongly considering picking up Superman and Teen Titans because of him'

@Scott_Lobdell: and if this is the real lobdell you should send an angry letter over to Marvel about how piss poorly they used your gen X kids (esp since half of them are dead now :'( )

BB, The world is full of cheaters! McKlayn, I haven't kept up, but they are all Marvel's characters and they should always feel free to write the best stories possible!

Wow, Epic beard, @Scott_Lobdell: !

I'd love to see this happen again and hopefully more questions can be answered next time.

2013, Year of the Dustin!

Thanks, Scott!

I'm curious as to what he said that DC didn't approve of...

Awesome background to where he was sitting

Posted by Jonny_Anonymous

Ha cool vid

Posted by notarandomguy

This would make an awesome new segment !! he kinda reminds me of Tony at some points :p

Posted by cbishop

@G-Man: This is what you need to do with the "Ask & Ye Shall Receive...Answers" segments. Put the name in print at the bottom, then show the question... and edit out the parts where you ramble. You could fit so many more questions in each installment that way. (he says greedily) :)

Posted by TheMess1428

What were the 2 questions?

Posted by CitizenJP

RESIDUAL RESIDUALNESS is all I needed to hear. Thanks, Scott.

Posted by Supes1903

Thanks for the video Scott, I'd love to see something like this become a regular thing! Also, keep up the good work on Superman! I'm really digging it so far and Kenneth's art is pure eye-candy.

Posted by Ulfghuld

Awesome! I want more of these!!! :)

Posted by UrbanChill

i would love to hear more from scott ! might as well give him a job haha

Posted by danhimself

Posted by Scott757

I liked that video, keep them up Tony & Babs!!!

Posted by JairamGanpat

This guy's pretty cool. Down to earth too. :)

Posted by CookieVonDoom

More of these videos I say!

@Scott_Lobdell: It's really cool of you to take your time for us fans by answering questions and giving some of your thought on it all!

Posted by G-Man

@cbishop: That would make editing even longer. 40 minutes is a lot to edit.

@TheMess1428: They were really epic ones. It's a shame they had to be cut.

Posted by Cavemold

Thanks for doing this lobdell. What Ive learned from this is , No new Gods in superman arc , I think that would been great way bring this book back to revelance . Maybe making lex jokerish will work. You will not explain Jason Todd death and resurrection in anymore detail. . I think that's a good idea for everyone invovled.. I'm glad louis will be involved with Clark and not superman.Anyways best of luck to you.

So we'll never know what they were regardless of the answers?

Posted by GothamRed

Finally, Dustin has been a major question for me since RHaTO 1

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

This is great! I like the answering in video format. Great job!

Posted by ALittleTooRaph

My favorite comics writers since I was a kid in the 90's! He always seems like such a cool dude.

Posted by Slugg22

Thanks Scott!

Posted by Bestostero

can we at least know what the questions was about that were removed? lol

Posted by TitanTempest

@Scott_Lobdell: haha "Like"

Posted by GaryTitan


Posted by StarKiller809

He didn't answer my question! I need to know if the Hel on Earth story will be self contained or not! 

Posted by Mbecks14

Well I was excited about his answer regarding Lois until he said there'd be a dramatic change in the dynamic to intentionally be different. I like new and fresh but change for change's sake is tricky, especially when it's not well done. Now I'm just nervous.

Posted by hunterscarlet

Thank you Scott for choosing my question. Im a huge fan and i am looking forward to continuing reading your books.

yups. a lil disappointed that we couldn't view the other 2 questions.

Posted by darth_jones

Disappointed in the softballish questions. I understand he was limited in what he was allowed to say but I'd like to see some response to the Tim Drake issues. Satisfied with the open endedness of the Red Hood origin though.

Posted by Blood1991

It is so weird seeing a character with my name O_O and a writer saying it.

Posted by Zeeguy91

He's actually kinda funny

Posted by sesquipedalophobe

Lobdell didn't answer my question because he couldn't pronounce my ridiculously stupid nickname.

Posted by Scott_Lobdell

I think the G-MAN is teasing you a little -- I don't think the answers were THAT epic! LOL

I just got a little spoilery with my answers and when they were sent in for fact-checking we were asked to omit them. (We had even planned to go with a black tape edited over my mouth but it would have taken too much time.)

The good news is, we got to do the answers on video -- the bad news is, once they were edited it didn't make sense to go in and record more. (Next time I'll tape ten answers so we have more choices in the final edit!

Also, keep in mind: I didn't chose the questions - they were chosen for me by the G-Man (Lest it appear I was shying away from tough questions.)

Regarding "softball questions" -- I have actually already given a pretty detailed answering of thought process on Teen Titans #0 and Tim Drake.

You can find it here:

Edited by SmoothJammin

Even though I've dropped Teen Titans due to Tim becoming a typical Mary Sue and now adding gymnastics to his flawless repertoire I'm poised to tackle some of Scott's other work and RHATO has otherwise been on point.

Posted by bladewolf

That was pretty good! I really wish we could've seen what else he said, but maybe CV will post it after NYCC this coming weekend.
