Default Comic Book Urban Legends reveals PAD's original plan for the future of Aquaman

I wish we still had an Aquaman forum!

CBR's Urban Legends column looks at Peter David's original plans for the future of Aquaman before he left the book.

Article here, its the second item in the column: http://goodcomics.comicbookresources...-revealed-169/

The juicy stuff being:

It all came to a head with a story David had set up to lead into the 50th issue of the book. In the storyline, Aquaman would take on Triton, God of the Seas and die defending Poseidonis (capitol of Atlantis).

Garth would then take over the ruling of Atlantis, but, after some time being “dead,” Aquaman would return as the new DC water elemental, as a being made out of water.

Ultimately, David’s plan was to have him returned back to human via the intervention of Mera, complete with his hand back. Garth would stay in charge of Atlantis, though, and Aquaman would travel the world as a sort of ambassador to Atlantis.

Reactions?

It sounded like a pretty good storyline to me and under Peter David would probably have been really good.

Shame editorial got in the way (it always seems to be editorial interference that cause the most problems with books). DC's execution of similar ideas later on though were less successfull.

Peter David is a legend and I'd love to see him come back to DC, I would want him involved with Green lantern and JSA with Geoff johns and peter Tomasi,

Triangle era for the Green lantern books,

This sounds excellent! I wish DC would have stuck with it.

Sounds great, I'd be up for the last idea.

More Aquaman & PAD related news in this week's column too!

Here: http://goodcomics.comicbookresources...-revealed-170/

So... Peter David had originally hoped to write Aquaman much sooner!

Interesting stuff!
