Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to answer some questions. How did Batman/Aliens come to be, considering it is a crossover with DC and Dark Horse? How do you prepare yourself when taking on a project like this compared to something like Endless Winter or Green Lantern?

Once again, thank you for joining us on DC Universe Infinite!

Thanks for being here, Mr. Marz. You took on the task of turning one of the original Silver Age heroes evil in Emerald Twilight. How did you feel about that going into it? Looking back, do you think you accomplished what you wanted to with the story? Anything you might have done differently?

Sir, another question. You’ve had the longevity on Witchblade that’s very difficult to get at the larger companies. Does that impact your writing in anyway?

That is seriously one of my favorite runs in comics, EVER!

First off, considering one of your latest projects was the DC mini-event “Endless Winter,” how does it feel to foresee the future? :sweat_smile:

Second, since the House of Horror is covering the Batman/Aliens storyline, I wonder what it was it was like to work with the legendary Bernie Wrightson?

Out of any superhero in the DCU (who hasn’t already been a Green Lantern), who do you think should become a member of the Green Lantern Corps?

First, thanks not only for all the amazing stories, but for also being so cool on Twitter. You’ve already answered so many of my best (and dumbest) questions there, but I think what I still wanna know most is:

if you could write another DC/Marvel crossover with complete creative control, who would be the main characters, and which artists would you want to work with?

What are the similarities and differences between Kyle Rayner and Superman?

Ron, you set up several villains as the opposite of Kyle, Effigy, Nero, and parallax. Did you have one in particular you considered Kyle’s arch nemesis?

When creating and writing Kyle Rayner, how did you come about making him an artist, and making it such a big part of him as a character. Also, what do you think are the main differences between Kyle and the other Green Lanterns.
