    I don't read DC superheroes, so I may be misremembering, but doesn't Aquaman have a pirate hook?

    • Marc Alan Fishman says:

      He had a hook at the same time he grew out a beard, and ditched the orange shirt for some metal bands. Then he gave up the hook, got his orange shirt back, shaved, and got a hand made out of mystic healing water. Then he became an octupus. Then he died. Currently, he's a Black Lantern.

  2. Brian Sokol says:

    Aquaman is probably the least exciting thing about Brightest Day.

  3. RD Francis says:

    TO be pedantic: It's a bi-weekly, not bi-monthly (or, in all likelihood, even semi-monthly) series.

    I love the idea of Arthur coming back, but the fact that he's coming back in the pages of a Green Lantern event rather than having his own AQUAMAN: REBIRTH mini tells me that DC still isn't confident about the character. I think we need to collect some of the best Aquaman stories and put them out in trades. Make the great tales of this character readily available so people can read and WANT this hero back. And since the Infinite Crisis re-altered his history again, bringing back some of the silver age elements, let's firmly establish his origin and why he belongs in the DCUniverse.When Marv Wolfman wrote his HISTORY OF THE DCU years back, he treated the third member of DC's trinity not as Wonder Woman but as Aquaman. I always found that interesting and would like to see that aspect played up.(And if anyone at DC is reading, I would love to write AQUAMAN SECRET ORIGIN. I would make it swashbuckling, Shakespearean and epic. And Phil Jimenez or Darick Robertson should draw it. Just saying.)

    • Marc Alan Fishman says:

      I agree, that they need a "Secret" (or not so secret, really) Origin for Arthur. I think you'd be a fine choice Alan. But I'd love to see someone like Mike Norton take the reigns.

    I'll take "Mid-Life Crisis" for $400, Alex. I agree with Brandon, poor Aquaman. Kid's dead and wifey is a Red Lantern.

    Are they going to tell him to use a bulb wrench again? I mean, thats what we do use to change a light bulb, right? Poor Captain Fishstick. Can never catch a break. He's about as popular as Underwater Spock.
