New York Comic Con Aqua-News!

From the fine folks at CBR, comes this interview with Brightest Day writer Geoff Johns where he talks about Aquaman:
"There are lots of plans for Aquaman post-'Brightest Day,'" Johns said in response to the next question, 'he's going to be bad-ass." Berganza cautioned him it was too early to give more details.

Asked about B-listers he'd like to upgrade, "Nobody's B-list until you write them as B-list--I consider Aquaman A-list," Johns said.

After some prodding (and a fan shouting, "What are they going to do, fire you?"), he decided to share a scene he'd always wanted to write. "Aquaman's just chilling, and Superman and Wonder Woman come up to him say, 'we're rebuilding the Justice League, we really want to you to join.' He says, 'if you need a leader, I'll be there.' 'No, Arthur, we really need you.' 'If you need a leader, I'll be there.' Then you like turn the page, and they're all around the table and Aquaman says, 'I call this meeting to order.'"
I love that he considers Aquaman A-list! (I always have!) I can't wait to see the plans come to fruition for Aquaman, Aqualad, Aquagirl, and Mera after Brightest Day is done!

And also this cute bit...
Johns will be building Aquaman's rogues' gallery "quite a bit." A fan shouted that BP should be a villain.
It does make sense, doesn't it?

And then this?!?
Asked about obscure character Dark Flash Walter West, but Aquaman's sister and other associated characters will be returning.
Never in any incarnation of Aquaman that I've read, has there ever been a sister, that I can recall! Perhaps there's something in one of the Golden Age Aquaman stories? I admit, I haven't read most of those...
