I love the new Aquaman series. It's been my favorite of the DC Comics relaunch. It's one of the things Geoff Johns is doing right. It made Aquaman an awesome character for the first time in a while. Issue #9 came out not too long ago and has re-imagined the relationship between Arthur and Manta. SPOILER ALERT if you haven't read it. Take the jump to read more.
So as soon as I read that, my thoughts instantly went to, "That's not the original Black Manta from old continuity." During the "Brightest Day" event, DC introduced the new Aqualad, Jackson Hyde to coincide with Young Justice on Cartoon network.
