Which is your favorite version of King Shark?

Which version of King Shark do you like best? His original, Great White Shark type appearance or his New 52 Hammerhead Shark appearance? I'm not sure myself, personally I think both looks work well for him, afterall, he is...A SHARK! "gets shot by Deadshot for his awful pun" XD

I like the hammerhead look a lot. The eyestalks let him stand more upright, giving him a more humanoid appearance rather than just being an awkward, hunched shark with crappy arms and legs. I also like the little tendrils he has now.

I'm not a fan of the new version at all...he looked much more deadly and fearsome in his great white form

i agree with this, i prefer him much more as a great white rather than as a hammerhead :P

I'm fine with both; I've been really happy that King Shark is one of the few characters that has kept his personality and place in the DC world after the reboot. Something has felt off about the way Glass has been writing Deadshot, but Sharky is still his good ol' self. :D

I don't mind the hammerhead version. I believe they did this to move away from the Marvel Tiger shark which looks the same as him. I would have rather preferred him to be in great white form and to have a brother/rival who is the hammerhead version. And I think it would be cool to see them fight over who is better. What do you think of my idea?

I like his modern Suicide Squad form more.

I like the hammerhead version, his original made him look human but his new look gives him a kind of creepy alienish look.

I like his original pre Flashpoint app for one reason.

He was a Great White who can be considered the king of sharks (like T-Rex and dinos) and he was the son of a shark god. It make's sense he would be a Great White.

Apart from that minor detail, I really like the new Hammerhead design and the character is still awesome.
