The New 52 Aquaman series has been a surprise hit with fans and critics alike. Rather than simply retelling the origin story of the King of the Seven Seas, dwelling on the underwater politics and obscure aquatic villains of the past, Johns and Reis have instead brought forth a more purposeful Aquaman with depth of character and an already developed past involving a secret league of super-powered individuals called ‘The Others.’
Using ancient Atlantean artifacts, the Others have unusual abilities but are still prey to the treasure hunter Black Manta who seeks to dredge up the mysteries of the past in order to create his own kingdom. It has been a major thrill ride so far and the conclusion looks to be a real blockbuster!
