Aquaman and Mera Redux

This is  a recolor of a previous wallpaper. I just didn't like the muted colors in the first one and thought I'd give a shot recoloring it! Turned out I like it better than the original! Nobody rocks the orange and green like Aquaman!!

More Aqua-News!

CBR spoke to Brightest Day writer and DC Entertainment's Chief Creative Officer, Geoff Johns about Brightest Day and the Aquawar... here's what he had to say!
Another character that's enjoyed a great amount fanfare with the release of "Brightest Day" is Aquaman. It's been nice to give him a chance to shine, because he's had some lean years of late.

It's great when people say, "I want more Aquaman." When's the last time you heard them say that? I think Aquaman is one of DC's A-List characters, but he's got to be treated like that. He's got to be showcased like that and he's got to kick ass like Green Lantern or Batman or the entire Justice League.

And I know you love writing Mera, too.

Mera is one of the strongest female superheroes in comics, in my opinion. She's regal, powerful, smart, confident and stands on her own. She doesn't need to stand next to Aquaman to be her own character. There are plans for her post-"Brightest Day."

Sticking with the Aqua Family, you have to be pleased with Jackson Hyde, too, the new Aqualad? I loved seeing him in "Young Justice," as well.

If we were going to introduce a new Aqualad, we had to decide that we were all going to do it. It's very hard to launch a new character, so this was our first try using DC in various ways, between the comics, animated series, licensing, everything. Let's showcase him. And he has a great role in "Brightest Day" 16. There's a big revelation about who Aqualad is and where he comes from.

Sage wanted to know about Aquawar. Can you give us any teases of what we'll see and where we'll see it?

It happens in "Brightest Day" 19 and 20. And it's a culmination of what Aquaman is about to go through that results in a pretty stunning revelation for what he'll be doing next and it leads him into the finale of "Brightest Day."

I recently spoke with Alan Ritchson, who plays Aquaman on "Smallville," and he was pretty confident we were going to see an Aquaman movie in the near future. Any news on that front?

I hope we do one day, for sure. But I can't say anything more about that right now. Let the rumors keep flying!

From none other than Geoff Johns! He had this to say in a Newsarama interview:
Nrama: Can you tell us anything that's coming up in the comic?

Johns: Something pretty major happens to Aquaman in Issue 19 that I think is going to raise an eyebrow or two.

Nrama: Fans are very excited about the solicited "Aquawar." And since you confirmed there are plans for all these characters post-Brightest Day, you certainly made it clear in San Diego that you will be working with Aquaman somehow.

Johns: In my opinion, he’s up there with Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, the Flash and Green Lantern.

Nrama: Can you confirm that you will be working with him in a comic in 2011?

Johns: Sure.

That's all I need to know!! Hopefully Geoff means writing a solo Aquaman book, rather than using him as part of another event! I can only hope that Ivan Reis is the artist attached to the book! Brightest Day has spoiled me for primo Aquaman art!

Periodic Table of Swearing

I've saved the best for last! This is obviously of British origins, but the meanings are quite clear!

And here's the death of Supergirl from Crisis on Infinite Earths 7!


Crisis on Infinite Earths

Worlds will live. Worlds will die. Along with a bunch of heroes including Supergirl, Flash, and Aquagirl. Here's the wrap-around cover of the first issue!

And here's the sequence of Aquagirl's death, featuring Aqualad, Mera, and Lori Lemaris.


Periodic Table of Super-Hero Elements

Now here's a Periodic Table I know lots about!! The Sub-Legionic powers are named for the Legion of Substitute-Heroes! They are Porcupine Pete, Fire Lad, Infectious Lass, Color Kid, Stone Boy, Double-Header, and Eyeful Ethel. Giant Turtle is actually a Jimmy Olsen transformation, and Arms-Fall-Off-Boy didn't even make it into The Subs.

Periodic Table of Sci-Fi Film and Television

Now here's a great table! I love that even the Abrams reboot made it into the Star Trek elements! And since this table was created, we've discovered SGU (Stargate Universe)!

Periodic Table of Musical Genres

I really like the formulas on this one! I'd say every genre is there... except for maybe the Theme Song genre.

Periodic Table of Meat

A lot of thought went into creating this Periodic Table! I love that Bacon is the Meat of Life! The Noble Meats gave me a chuckle, as did the Gamey series! I wonder though, why is Fried Chicken, Chili, and Bacon classified as a heart attack? That's really not that bad... Still hilarious though!


Periodic Table of Jazz

I don't know much about Jazz, but the neat thing about a Periodic Table is that I can make sense of it, even without knowing all the musicians listed. Cool!


Periodic Table of Irrational Nonsense

I'm not sure everything in this table necessarily belongs (Ear Candles - I hear they work for people with bad ear wax problems, for example), but most of it I can agree with!

Periodic Table of the Internet

And here's a table we can all relate to...

Not much to say about this one. I like the ranking, although I wonder what this table will look like in 5 years...

First in a Series

Everyone is familiar with the Periodic Table of the Elements, but have you heard of these...?

The Periodic Table of City Planning Elements:

What an interesting idea! The Noble Gases normally occupy the far right dark blue column and in this case this is where planning elements like libraries and hopefully washrooms would be... The table makers also duplicate the Lanthanide and Actinide series (the two rows at the bottom)! I think the formula for a Generic Mall is too funny! I wonder how big West Edmonton Mall's formula would be?

I'll post another table tomorrow!
