 This just annoys me. This is the funeral of martian manhunter in final crisis. See Aquaman over there next to green arrow on the right? HE WAS DEAD THEN! HE SHOULDN'T HAVE APPEARED THERE! AND NO IT ISN'T THE NEW AQUAMAN CAUSE HE HAS LONG HAIR AND A DIFFERENT COSTUME! What the hell? Does this annoy anyone else?

By the way, if you're wondering when he died, it was in issue 50 of Aquaman: Sword of Atlantis back in 2007.

LOL At worst it's just an art mix up, and at best it's an Easter egg. No need to get worked up about it. As much as I don't like Tomasi, he was an editor for a long time, and I doubt he'd make such a massive mistake.

@AtPhantom: Yeah, actually I forgot that this could have been drawn before he actually died.

No way. Final Crisis: Requiem was released nearly a year and a half after Aquaman's death. That's way too much time between drawing and releasing an issue. I doubt they even had Martian Manhunter's death in plan at that point. And even if that was true, Aquaman didn't look like that for more than a year already. It was most likely artist just throwing characters in to fill up the panel, and he didn't notice that one of them was actually dead. I'm sure it has happened before.

I can see how this could happen being as so few people give a crap about Aquaman he's easily overlooked
