The The Trench, Conclusion wiki last edited by KingOrin67 on 04/07/14 11:05PM View full history

There are parts of the ocean even Aquaman should not enter. Now Aquaman and Mera must descend into uncharted territory: the smoky black crevice at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean, home of the cannibalistic creatures known only as the Trench. One last secret behind these loathsome creatures will be revealed as "The Trench" thunders toward its bloodcurdling conclusion!

In order to seal the Trench to stop them from invading the surface world again, Aquaman triggers a volcanic eruption. The queen of these subterranean beings dies in the process. Back at Amnesty Bay, Aquaman helps the people who were trapped in the cocoons the Trench made to preserve their "food". A boy comes up to the Sea King and tells him that

Aquaman is his favorite super hero, bringing a smile to both him and Mera. Later at the Curry Lighthouse, deputy Wilson arrives to thank Aquaman and Mera for their help and to apologize for the action of some of his colleagues. Someone else wanted to say thank you and it was the dog that Aquaman rescued. The aqua duo decide to keep the dog and realized he needed a name. Deputy Wilson suggested Aquadog. The story ends with Mera saying they will have to teach their new pet to swim.

There is an Epilogue to the next story line that shows the continent of Atlantis being sunk in one day. Aquaman will begin a quest to solve the mystery.

All-in-all, Aquaman...

A spoonful of camp helps the genocide go down 0

Ever since I heard Geoff Johns was doing the new Aquaman title, I got pumped, and for the past 3 issues my excitement was rewarded handsomely. Rather than resorting to making him grim and gritty like previous attempts at making him relevant, John's gave us some self-referential, humorous moments that served as a counterpoint to him staring down puny surface dwellers who don't know their place as he slaughters horrors from the murky depths. That being said, while issue 4 was a fantastic installme...

Risen from the depths 0

Aquaman is proving to be DC's most successful relaunch. Not only in terms of revamping a joke character into a relatable, capable, and badass superhero but also in completing its beginning story arc in less than a year. What this means is that Geoff Johns already had a plan for Aquaman and how his world fits into the bigger picture long before the other books in the New 52. While other books are only now getting on track, Aquaman is already looking ahead.While Justic League is basically a Hollyw...
