Flashpoint: Emperor Aquaman #3 (Screw you Orm Spoilers)

The lesson is, never trust Ocean Master, he’s a douche whatever the universe (a bit like Jasper Sitwell, but worse). This issue was OK, I feel that Bedard was going for some kind of epic, Shakespearean tragedy where destruction was inevitable, even if Aquaman and Wonder Woman had been manipulated, but it didn’t really work. I did enjoy this mini, but it was kind of infuriating seeing as the whole war was based on a series of stupid misunderstandings. But then that is pretty realistic.

Loved it. Arthur choosing his hate over saving the world is epic. Really wish there was more.

It was all pretty rushed. I wish there was more, too. I feel this way about several of the minis (well, the ones that were good/promising, at least).

It's not surprising that learning the truth didn't stop Arthur. Regardless of what's true, WW killed Mera and was wearing her helm for all to see. I think wearing the helm was her biggest mistake here. Sure, she wanted to use it as a warning to Atlanteans, but once she found out the truth, it became a liability more than anything else. She should have never approached him, expecting rationality, while she was wearing a strident symbol of the pain she has inflicted on him.
