So despite his top selling book and mega-crossover, DC still continues to undermine the character with little asides like this?

"Does Trevor know?"- clearly they are referring to Steve Trevor, but what popped into my head first was "Does Trevor Von Eeden know why Cyborg got picked over Black Lightning?"

Oh shut up, Justice League Dark. No one reads your crappy book anyways!

Joseph Brian Scott said...

Well, JLD, I'll answer your rhetorical Q: Apparently A LOT of people care. He's the former ruler of a civilization of superhumans that could conquer the surace world, and you don't think he matters? Your dismissive attitude toward Aquaman reflects more poorly on you than it does him.

Outside the comic community Aquaman isn't viewed to highly, so they have taken that approach in the comics. Basically giving him an underdog vibe despite how powerful he is. I have enjoyed it personally. As far as Justice League Dark goes, its actually a popular book and it always gets strong reviews from a lot of sites/readers. This is just stuff that is moving toward trinity war in all likelihood. Like the "have to find booster gold" writing. He's suppose to play a large part in that event.

Guess it didn't post before...

Not too big on the New 52 version of Aquaman, particularly the "let's make Aquaman considered a joke in-universe" approach. (The DCU all liked him fine before, regardless of real-world parodies, etc.) Granted, I'm not too big (to put it very mildly) on the New 52 as a whole, *period*. At least (to my knowledge) Arthur isn't using the phrase "booty call" like his pal Clark just did... *shudder*. (Goes back to reading his old comics...)

Aquaman is getting pretty close to possibly being the only book I read from DC real soon.

He's not viewed as a joke by everyone in the DC universe, but the old version was really just living in the bubble. It didn't address actual perceptions of the character outside of the comic community. It's one of the better books in DC at the moment.
