Production background 

  • Tommy and Tuppence Terror are named after the characters Tommy and Tuppence, a couple of married detectives created by Agatha Christie. The name is also a nod to Greg Weisman's friend Tuppence Macintyre, who had previously helped him research Scottish history for the television series Gargoyles.[9]Greg had previously created another character based on Tuppence Macintyre while writing Captain Atom: Plastique's lawyer, Tuppence Macrae.[10]
  • In Young Justice #0, Tuppence had short hair. In the comic, she was drawn by Mike Norton based on a rough design (concept art) by Phil Bourassa. For the show, director Jay Oliva wanted her to more resemble Gwen Stefani, partly to differentiate her from Shimmer, so she was redesigned by Phil Bourassa
