Quote from: "Super Monkey"
If this bloke is now Aquaman then what will Aquaman will be called?

How about "King Arthur"?

Quote from: "Super Monkey"
Or the Conan comic he was been writing for a while that he talked about here and was mention a few times in that link I posted to start the thread.

Kurt, do you know if all your Conan work is going to be collected in trade paperbacks?

Ooooh, good point: will ecology be a major theme or plot point in the upcoming AQUAMAN series? It sounds like it, considering part of it will involve corporations and undersea resources and whatnot.

Here's a question for the forum: what characters would work in a Sword & Sorcery context a la SWORD OF ATLANTIS, and which ones would not?

"Ecology" as a theme in most superhero comics means "preachy anti-pollution story," rather than "the way the world works around us affects us."

I don't want to do any of the former, I have some ideas regarding the latter.

yeah, i hate preachy eco guys too.  There's more to Aquaman than that.

I'm thinking motivation here. A is about protecting the sea and the city of Atlantis.  Much like Bats is motivated to protect and clean up his city
gotham city.

I thought it would be cool if Aquaman got drunk sometime too. Who hasn't got drunk at least once in life. He's got enough problems to warrant tossing back a few. But you never see any body but Lobo and Bibbo getting loaded.  He wouldn't have to drink like a fish (ouch!), but at least once he might drink more than he could handle before he has realized he had too much.

Also, Aquaman needs a love interest.  Bats eyes Diana sometimes. Supes has Lois. But poor lonely Aquaman in all alone.

Does Aquaman have to launder his costume?

Well, Aquaman has his Princess Mera. She's more like Aquaman's Hawkgirl than his Lois Lane, and it takes one gutsy writer to give a hero's girlfriend better powers than he does.  Cheesy  She had a fairly neat power that nobody has ever really made use of its full crazy, interesting potential: the ability to create hard water. Like the Asian Dr. Light, there's a neat power there that writers have yet to have them do anything truly cool with.  

Will we see the Elementals from Paul Kupperberg's JLA Atlantis story? (Man, Zatanna was one great JLA chairperson; she can boss around Superman and that's something.)

How about Tier Nan Oge from that eighties miniseries where Aquaman got his Sea World costume?
