Aquaman : The end of an era ?

Posted by Hiddensix (44 posts) - - Show Bio

after more than 50 years of being called the lamest hero ever, Aquaman gained many fans due to the efforts of the allstar "Green Lantern" Team : Geoff Johns and Ivan Reis . however , since Reis has finally left the creative team . would the series still remain one of the best of the new 52 ?

P.S I Like Wood's work on Aquaman 14 but can Pelletier still make the series shine ?

state your opinions pls .

The Geoff Johns Aquaman will go the way of the old Geoff Johns Hawkman and Booster Gold. The current version of Aquaman is still pretty useless compared to Superman.

Pelletier can do the job.

Aquaman will be alright as far a art goes.

@colonyofcells Who isn't useless compared to Supes, really? I'm hoping they can maintain the quality of this previous team because this book made me look at Aquaman differently.

Aquaman has been solid since the 90s with Peter David. The new 52 isn't making him cool, he already was.

As long as Aquaman is paired next to Batman & Superman, he's going to be a joke to the mainstream.

Dc needs to allow Aquaman, Martian, Wonder Woman, and others a chance to beat Superman so other super heroes can shine also. Unfortunately, the origins tend to be very similar. Superman is from krypton, Aquaman from Atlantis, Martian from Mars, WW from Paradise Island. Dc needs to work harder to make each super hero useful and unique. Currently, WW is using greek mythology to differentiate with Superman. Aquaman and Atlantis need more revamps to be interesting. I would like to see Aquaman become as useful as Superman both in land and space. If Thor can be useful everywhere in the universe, I think Aquaman can also.

I think Pelletier is a great artist, so yeah, I think the book is in good hands.

My guess is dc does not want to invest in Aquaman too much anymore. Aquaman don't have much future in tv or the movies. The Justice league movie probably won't have Aquaman.

As much as I love Aquaman, he isn't a space guy. He works fine on land, so long as he isn't in a desert, really.

Are you saying that other DC heroes need to literally beat Superman in a fight... I sure hope not.

@juandicimo_magnifico45: I don't see the problem in that. Superman may be the most powerful person in the DC, but other DC characters have different abilities they can use to defeat Supes. Batman: Being paranoid and planning a way to kill everyone of the JLA if they went rogue. Aquaman: Summoning a shark. Martian Manhunter: Using his abilities to pass through solid objects on Superman. He can just stick his hand through Superman. Wonder Woman: She has some of the gods on her side. Flash: Running around to create a tornado to go after Supes. Green Lantern: Using his ring to make a shield or fight against Supes. Captain Marvel: Magic. Spectre: Really?. Atom: Become small sneak into his ear and then become large of again. Shatter Superman's body. Sure it will be bloody, but hey a win for Ray Palmer. Hawkman: Going Hawkman on him. Green Arrow: Kryptinite arrow.
