Theme Thursday - WATER
Being the fan that I am, there was only one way for me to go with this week's theme:
Aquaman has always been my favorite super-hero. He is perennially the easiest for people to joke about, but this stems mainly from a general ignorance as to what he is truly capable of. Not only can he breathe underwater and 'talk' to sea life, but he is also super-humanly strong, amazingly fast and the King of Atlantis - heck, the King of the Seven Seas!
His origin has gone through many changes over the years, as has his temperament, his costume and his ability to sell comics. But he has maintained a popularity over more than six decades, through many rises and falls in the comic book industry.
I became a fan when I was a kid through the Saturday morning cartoon "The Super-Friends". Later, I was reintroduced to the character through comic books, and have been a fan ever since. I can't say I am happy with how DC Comics has treated the character as of late, but I am hopeful we will see a return, one day, to the Aquaman we know and love. And there are hundreds of comics, dozens of shows and tons of merchandise to enjoy until then!
Here are some great links concerning the King of the Seven Seas, swim over and check them out!
The Unofficial Aquaman Website - Laura runs an awesome, extensive site with everything you needed to know about Aquaman!
The Aquaman Shrine - Rob runs another great site, with everything and anything pertaining to Aquaman. My own "Aquaman Shrine" is one of the many Rob has posted on his site.
