Whenever people talk about rebooting superheroes, the most obvious one never comes up: Aquaman. He’s become a long running joke on Entourage as a fictional film directed by James Cameron, but there may now be a serious effort underway to revive Aquaman, and why not?
Reports are circulating about what the heroes in the Justice League may be like.
Last month we saw an unprecedented marketing move from DC Comics. They relaunched and renumbered all of their superhero lines at once, revamping and reconfiguring almost every title.
Aquaman is part of DC’s New 52 relaunch, and it seems like they felt safe reengineering the character a bit more than the others.
This week, during SDCC, DC released a whole slew of interior images from their new 52 event, in which all 52 of their comics lines will be starting anew at issue #1.
Aquaman has long been a laughable superhero, but DC plans to change that with their new take on the character.
