In the past, Scott Lobdell has answered your questions. He loves doing it. He loved it so much that it started taking him away from actually writing. We can't have that. We're going to do this again.

Starting right now, for the next 24 hours, you can ask questions about the zero issues, Superman, Tim Drake, Jason Todd, Teen Titans, Death of the Family, etc. But there's a catch.

Scott will only be answering FIVE QUESTIONS. Also, his mother will be choosing the questions, so let's keep them civil. You can only ask ONE QUESTION per post. No two-part questions.

Questions can be submitted for the next 24 hours, until Saturday, September 22 at 10 a.m. PT. The questions will be selected and Scott will answer them first thing next week.

If all goes well, we just might make this a regular weekly feature.

What was the reasoning behind retconning Beast Boy's history with the Doom Patrol/his contracting of Sakutia and turning green?

Since superboy prime from what we know does not exist in the new52, what in your eyes was the cause of Jason coming back from the grave? I love how you kept it kinda open ended in Redhood and the outlaws but is there a definitive answer? Thank you for keeping comics not only fresh but just plain fun to read. I find myself laughing and smiling when I read your stuff which I feel is what comics should do.

In the simplest phrase, what is Superman? To us the readers, to the people of the world and to the people in metropolis? What is he viewed as?

Where do you draw the inspiration for the characters you write (as they vary quite a bit and come with a lot of canon)?

First of all, Scott, thanks for all of the great Teen Titans, RHATO and Superboy stories you've given us for the last year and I'm extremely excited for your run on Superman, it's gonna be great!

My question:

How do you get how so many brilliant but extremely different characters think and speak in your head when you're writing them in your great stories month after month? E.G. Roy Harper to Zaniel Templar.

@theTimeStreamer: his debut on superman is next week..... i don't understand your question

Anyway, there are so many questions I can ask; I finally settled on this:

How would the currents events of Justice League reflect in your Superman run, if at all?

Do you or the DC higher-ups have any plans for other Metropolis characters like Steel and his niece?

I noticed in the solicitations that he will appear in an upcoming issue of Animal Man. Weird book for Steel, I thought.

Thanks for a reply (if I get one, lol).

As a big fan of Lois Lane, I was wondering if you could share your thoughts on the character, in general, and any details about what I could expect to see develop in her personal and professional life during your upcoming arc. Thanks!

Will we ever see actual closure between Jason Todd and Batman, or is the story just going to be "well, Jason just forgave him eventually."

With all the new DC shows coming out like Arrow and possibly Wonder Woman, do you think a show based off of Redhood and the Outlaws could be made?

We saw that Jason Todd's mother was pregnant when his father was arrested. What were you thinking when you wrote that? Any implications for the future of the Todd family?

1) Will we get any resolution for the underlying Daemonite storyline lampshaded in several New 52 titles, including Superman, hopefully within six months?

2) Same question for the Harvest/Culling storyline. Needless to say, we have basically learnt nothing of the guy's motivations and goals.

3) Will be more characters joining Red Hood's team in RHatO? Sure are there several pre-existing and new characters in stock who would fit into the groups profile? Crux for instance seemed to have a lot of potential, if space for character development is ensured.

4) Will we see Superboy interact more with Caitlin Fairchild? Honestly, I loved how their relationship was portrayed in the first few issues, and I'm not expecting a romance or something. It's like it was Conner who brought out Caitlin's empathic, motherly side in the first place, while she challenged Conner's views regarding one's place in the world if they were changed or even designed for other people's purposes.

5) Any updates on your creator owned title, Awesome? I remember some interviews from the time of last year's San Diego Comic Con, but nothing since then. Even the website seems to be dead at the moment.

I would ask are we going to see what the new 52 Superman can really do anytime soon because it seems they are making him weaker than almost everyone so far. lol

Since you've mentioned we were going to see a lot of Krypton's background, is there a chance we will see any mention of/or the connection between Rao and the earthly pantheon of gods?

That sounds like more of a question for editoral and Howard Mackie, and I think it was to connect him with The Red from Animal Man.

There was a recent news story about the content of a Teen Titans trade (that you wrote) being changed to remove the notion that Tim Drake had ever been Robin. Late changes like these are giving the impression that DC has not mapped out their new "five year" chronology and personally it's really confusing me. What's the level of communication between DC editorial and the writers on matters of continuity and are you finding the changing continuity problematic yourself when it comes to plotting your titles?

First off I have to thank you for writing Teen Titans. The title hasn't been this good since Johns' Run. Also My wallet would like to thank you for leaving Superboy. Now my Question: Are there any plans for Static to join the Teen Titans? or for their to be any new additions to the Titans or the Outlaws?

Hey Scott,

Hey I was wondering if the Outlaws will be recruiting any new members into this group of misfits? I really enjoy reading the Red Hood and the Outlaws. It is such an awesome book. I also hope this isn't the last see of Crux or Isabel again. I think they are great characters and I hope they are seen again in the DCU. Anyway props again with the great job you have done.

1. Is there any talk of a Dick/Kori reunion during "Death of the Family"?

2. Will Jason be the crowbar-swinging hero who lays a karmic save-the-day smackdown on Joker and earn the grudging respect and acceptance of the Bat-Family once again?

Seeing as Superman is the DC character traditionally linked with the New Gods and since they're showing up in Wonder Woman and Wonder Woman and Superman are romantically involved will we be seeing the New Gods anytime in the future?
