I see him get mentioned here and there but I haven’t really seen a whole thread dedicated to the King of the Seas.
I personally will admit I didn’t give Aquaman much thought as I was growing up. I mean Batman was on everyday after school when I was growingup and Superman was the big movie star. So Aquaman was just the Fourth Super Friend.
Years later I caught the 1989 miniseries (I loved that first issue cover!)
And the story really kept me interested. (but then Batman took over my brain again with the 89 movie and I never followed up on the next Aquaman series.)
It really wasn’t until The 1994 series by Peter David that I really started reading Aquaman regularly.
Now, I was never one who considered Aquaman to be the lame duck of the DC Roster. I didn’t have much interest in him, but I never regarded him as lame or weak.
(especially after he dropped a Whale on Namor’s head and took out a White Martian just by way of his aquatic telepathy)
Lately, I’ve gone out of my way to defend the King of the Seas. (I just did so on a Godzilla fan club Facebook thread)
So Come one, come all! share your fandom of the Monarch of the Oceans.
tell your Aqua-origin stories. and lets get this party started!
