“What do you think of our setting, The Ninth Tride?”
It’s a cool setting, definitely helps flesh out the world of Atlantis. Two things bug me about it, though.
I keep wanting to say/read Ninth Tribe, because that just sounds more like a real word to me.
You would think that if this area was here this whole time, and that there were mutants that were being persecuted long before Rath became King, that Arthur would have known more about them and done more to help them.
“What was your favorite moment?”
I would go with the moment where Dolphin convinces Arthur to fight alongside the resistance, even though he is reluctant and burned out from being the King before. It really showcases both Arthur and Dolphin’s character.
“Who was your favorite character?”
Dolphin, without question. She’s just a cool character who is introduced in the best way, with a great look, power-set, and fits perfectly with this different kind of story they’re telling. I’m also glad that they didn’t take the easy route for drama and make her a potential romantic interest for Arthur, especially since they initially had a connection back in Pre-Flashpoint continuity (though she did eventually marry and have kids with Garth instead). Arthur and Dolphin had this great, platonic, but strong bonding together through the course of these six issues, that I really hope that she continues to be a presence in this series.
