GM: I was most surprised by how much of the book Dwayne McDuffie managed to condense into animated feature length. If I'd written the screenplay, I'd have probably missed out half the material he found room for, so I was quite delighted when characters like Samson and Atlas showed up. As for elements of my own work, Dwayne used quite a lot of dialogue directly from the book, and it was fascinating to hear it read. I like to write superhero stories with non-naturalistic, composed or heightened dialogue, and I haven't really heard any of my lines spoken by actors since I was writing plays. I wasn't sure how it would sound but was very happy with the result.
