Trivia / Aquaman

  • Fan Nickname: "The Savage Sword of Aquaman", for the Conan the Barbarian-influenced Peter David era.
  • What Could Have Been: Shaun McLaughlin, who wrote Aquaman for a while, wanted to do a four-issue series which would retell the Post-Crisis origin. It would bring back the Silver Age tale of Aquaman being the son of Tom Curry and Atlanna. It would also add that Atlan (Aquaman's father, Post-Crisis) had manipulated them to be together. Captain Storm of the Losers (the DC squad, not the Vertigo squad) would be revealed to be Tom Curry's black-sheep brother.
