The fun continues as Andy Kubert gives us Flashpoint Aquaman's character design!
The second character design of the day gives us some inside details on Flashpoint's version of Aquaman. Andy Kubert fills us in on his thought process for the character, courtesy of DC's Blog:
"What you're looking at is probably my very first drawing of Aquaman. For Flashpoint, he's military, tough and rugged with a scar on his face. You can see a lot of Sgt. Rock in his look...but that's probably in my genes! I gave him the buzzcut to help with his background and decided to keep the trident like the original one...why mess with a good thing? The fins on his boots in this sketch didn't make the final cut for the series. I like the take no prisoner attitude that he portrays since that's his character. Someday, I'd love to take a crack at a hard-hitting mini-series with him. There's so much visual that can be done with underwater techniques."
And here's the design:

SuperginraiX is the biggest sap on The Outhousers' payroll (wait, we get paid?). He reads every issue of every crappy Marvel crossover so you don't have to. Whats worse is that he pays for his books, thus condoning Marvel's behavior. If The Outhouse cared for his well being at all, they'd try and get him into some sort of rehab center. But, alas, none of us even know how to say his name. For a good time, ask Super why Captian America jumped off the Helicarrier in Fear Itself. Super lives in the frozen wastland that is Minnesota with 15% of the state's population living under his roof: a wife he makes wear an Optimus Prime mask, two gremlins, and his mother-in-law.
