Who's Who: Dolphin

After recording the latest episode of our Who's Who: The Definitive Podcast of the DC Universe, it occurred to me that, in all the years the Shrine has been running, we've never devoted a post to this *gorgeous* Dolphin entry by the late, great Dave Stevens!

This was the kind of entry that really made Who's Who something special: using an artist you rarely, if ever, saw in a DC comic, paired with an obscure character, making them seem about the coolest thing ever. This one meets both that criteria.

Of course, Dolphin wasn't introduced or used as an Aquaman supporting character, but over the years she's been drafted into the Aqua-Universe, having had relationships with both Aquaman and Aqualad, and showing up alongside the former in Kingdom Come.

If you want to see a bigger scan of this and other Who's Who pages, check out the Fire and Water Podcast tumblr!

In reference to the expression of the diver behind her: My sentiments exactly, sir.
