Aquaman is a real man's man. He had a awesome beard and Viking like hair. At his peak he had a freaking harpoon for an arm! It's not easy for Namor to compete with that...


This might be the most coherent post the Review Group has ever had.

Didn't he replace the harpoon with a 'magic' water hand? Sure it probably saves on lotion, but it doesn't get much more pansy than a water hand. And his hair wasn't viking, it was Poison road crew circa 1988. PAD's whole run was like a bad Aquanet commercial.

1939? Why did I think it was later .

Thanks to my poll it will soon be well documented who the King of the Seas is--with Aquaman currently being beaten by Stingray and tied for last with the likes of "that guy in the Inhumans with fins on his head".

I didn't get out to the ol' comic shop until today, after all the copies had been sold. Thus, I didn't get my hands on this either.

Why did whoever pick FF#587 this week? Secret Warriors #24 is also out and that looks like a much better book. :smt017

I don't know if you heard, but someone dies in the issue. It's kind of a big deal. :wink:

Even for a death issue, it's very ambiguous when the "final" scene comes, for sure. It's so replete with possibilities to weasel out easily, that's one reason (but only one) I say there was so little emotional resonance. I couldn't even convince myself to believe it was a death issue when it gets right down to it.

I must have missed the AP running stories on this week's issue of Secret Warriors then.

How long ago did they do this with Captain America? And when did he come back? Yeah, it's only a big deal if you don't read comics.
