REVIEW: Aquaman, Vol. 1: The Trench by Geoff Johns

0474

*No Spoilers*

The reader follows Aquaman as he tries to live with the humans. However, he and his wife Mera face harassment and prejudice from the humans. He doesn’t want to be the ruler of the Atlantis because of the fact that he’s half human and half Atlantian. The people of Atlantis won’t accept him as their ruler.

Things go awry when these unknown creatures arise from the trench and start feeding on the human fisherman. So, it’s up to Aquaman to save the day for the tiny fishing island. To unravel the mystery of what these creatures are and how to stop them from attacking humans ever again.

I think people have this idea of Aquaman as a lame superhero. Thinking him as useless to the Justice League, and the DC comic universe as a whole. However, he keeps the waters safe for both the sea life and the humans.

I thought the conflicts within Aquaman that occur throughout this story made him feel like a fully fleshed character. He and Mera just want to live a quiet life amongst humans, but the prejudices and jokes can make people unbearable.
