Well, I can tell by the cover that the writer holds Aquaman in high regard.

I kinda like it. it does resemble a silver-age cover but with a slightly darker twist.

Sea King actually walked into the chamber my himself.
I guess the next hero to be killed will walk into a room where there is a big red button. And press it.

Of course, they'll need to stand on the big red "X" to reach the button.

So... Sea King can't just bust through the chamber with his super strength? Because he's clearly a riff of off Aquaman, and Aquaman has super strength...

Or is this one of those dumbass Badass Normal vs Superhero scenarios where the supes have powers, but a very specific level of power that they're not immune to bullets? Or they can punch through concrete but can't even dent steel plating?

He killed Not-Aquaman with a trap the real Aquaman has escaped dozens of times. That doesn't make the villain start; it makes all the other supervillains look dumb for having never tried this before.

To be fair, he *specifically* could be less powerful, not all versions of Aquaman could just brute force out either.

Yep, I sure can see how this is a serial killer and not a supervillain. If the killer was a supervillain, he'd have put the hero in a death trap and monologued at him exactly how the trap was going to work.

And left an easily deciphered riddle to let the heroes know exactly who he was going after

And now we will see if it turns out that no, the cops interfering in superhero business was a bad idea after all.

Prediction -- it ends with her joining in on the murdering.

Or Bearded Idiot crashes in, and the generic killer escapes because he focuses on getting into a jurisdiction argument with her... or assumes she's the real killer.

Far be it for me to judge, I think hunting serial killers would probably be more comfortable with a bra.

Well, it'd also be more comfortable to take aim with both hands pointing the gun in front of you instead of holding one out perpendicular to your body like you're tossing a frisbee, but then how could see side-boob? Detectives have to think of stuff like that.
