    So these are Aquaman's equivalent world building Rainbow Lanterns then?

    I get the GL model of rebuilding has been successful, but you can go to the well only go often before it runs dry and people are left unsatisfied.

    Enjoying the book. Almost as fun as the Peter David run where the man built quite a nice world around Arthur Curry. Looking foreward to this.

    Nice to see DC is following AIPAC's lead and demonizing/stereotyping Iranians. [rolls eyes]

    How so?

    At this point, it just sounds like this character is a hero/associate from Aquaman's past; nothing more, nothing less...

    I'm becoming confused, is this new arc about "The Other League" or "Who Sunk Atlantis"?

    Same here Aquaman rules.
    To paint comic books as childish and illiterate is lazy. A lot of comic books are very literate - unlike most films.

    I dont see how this is demonizing Iranians since this character is said to be the moral compass of the group. Stereotyping with the attire and sword maybe...but it's seems less stereotype and more cultural basis...just based on the drawing that is.

    I've really enjoyed what Johns' and crew have done so far and look forward to the new arc as well.

    Same here. And these are characters from back in Atlantean history; they aren't characters from modern times in modern attire. These are mythical heroes from ancient times--like when people wore robes and carried swords. Plus, Kahina is "the moral compass" of Aquaman's team.

    How that is misconstrued as anti-Iranian is beyond me.

    Well you know...it's obviously so 90's grim and gritty, I bet there are pouches and shoulder pads under the robes. /sarcasm

    Actually, the "Other League" were heroes 5 years ago. They retired and now are coming back for a reason that's connected to the golden items. I doubt if any of them are Atlantean.
