Black Manta's Celebrity Hot Tub is a Young Justice spin-off that series producer, Greg Weisman, and voice actor, Khary Payton, pitched to DC Nation, based on a suggestion by David Wilcox, inspired by a design by Phil Bourassa. Weisman and Payton wrote a script for the first episode titled "Black Beetle, Black Vykin, Black Lightning". Albeit met with some praise, the project was passed on.

Live performance[edit | edit source]

In 2016, Greg Weisman repurposed portions of the original script for a live performance at a CONvergence convention. The radio play, entitled "The Cosmos", involved a non-canonical crossover between Young Justice, Gargoyles, and The Spectacular Spider-Man. The live rendition featured Weisman, Khary Payton, and Christopher Jones, along with a cast of dozens of attendees.[1]
