aquaman redesign by katiecandraw aquaman redesign by katiecandraw
most people who know me know that i have no love for aquaman.... but the amazing site project rooftop's newest contest was to design him, and i couldn't resist designing the aquaman from the comic *i'd* read about the fishy lil' guy.

so i've made him a squirrelly lil', young surfer dude. he loves fish (even though sometimes they don't respect him), he's quirky, he can be a little bit of a coward and he has a little goldfish for a sidekick named "koi"... who he carries around at all times when he's on land in a little plastic bag. i imagine a LOT of great gags for when the bag rips in battle... aquaman desperately trying to find new, water-filled vessels for his fishy while still trying to fight the enemy. the book practically writes itself!

Why would Aquaman run from anything? Stronger then Superman, More of a Ninja then Deathstroke, Bulletproof, Cthulhu is his BITCH.

Best Aquaman has to be the Justice League sketch from "The State" where they really don't like him, either.

Nice redesign for the Justice League's resident royal Atlantean! I never really cared for Aquaman, but if a comic had this version, I would definitely check it out =D

Y'know, at best, Aquaman could always carry Koi around in one of those portable fish bowl tubes, like Bill Murray used for his goldfish in "What About Bob?" :XD:

This is adorable! I've never been a huge Aquaman fan either, though my heart will always have a special place for that one version where he's basically a crazy sea hobo with a hook for a hand.

This is FAR superior to any version of Aquaman, ever.

Last I knew, in the official comics Aquaman had just risen from the dead and was moping about because the only fish he could talk to were evil, undead ones. It hardly needs to be said, but your idea is obviously superior in every way.

That is definitely cute. :D

The funny thing is that the fish thing isn't all that far off--back in the golden/silver age, before Aqualad and the like, Aquaman did have an octopus side-kick named Topo.
