Seriously, is there anyone out there who thought "So, that 52 thing... I bet that Aquaman is going to be the best thing to come out of it"? I did not expect to care about it and yet, it is my favorite 52 title at the moment.

Here are a few pages from Aquaman 2 to show you why I love it so much:

Predatory sea creatures attack (read: EAT) a small town and a single police officer seeks out Aquaman's help to deal with that

The creatures attack again while Aquman is in the town

So what we have here is:
- Arthur and Mera being a loving, caring couple
- we still get the "LOL, Aquaman, WTF, ROFLOLCOPTER" attitude of the majority and Aquaman showing them he's awesome by being awesome
- we have people who respect Aquaman
- in one issue I went from not caring in the slightest about Mera, to kinda being a bit gay for her. And when I say "a bit" I mean " a lot"
- Namor is no longer my favorite ruler of Atlantis, hence him being so annoyed on my icon. Tough luck, bb.

Did she ever?
Wasn't it simply because she looks like a female Aquaman, "Gee, she must be called Aquawoman then" :P

If she'd worn a matching outfit, I'd see that as a possibility.

If she'd even worked as a publicly known hero a lot with Aquaman a lot I might see it, but...

And people in Gotham probably think Batwoman is Batman's wife as well :P

The civilians of the DCU (and Marvel U too for that matter) have never ever been shown to be that smart anyway!...
