Ye Olde Aquaman
Viking Aquaman by Arlen.
David J. Cutler
-Aquagent, the Aquaman of Victorian England! I love Aquaman and I figured the easiest way to make him seem more formidable was to take him back to a time before man could fly, when the waterways and trade routes were extremely important and constantly under siege by pirates and bandits and what have you. Aquagent protects the ships on the oceans as well as guarding the lost city of Atlantis--a drowned city rich in treasure and destructive magics--from his half brother, the rogue admiral Ocean Master, and the mad-inventor turned deep sea plunderer Black Manta. I spent way too much time thinking this out.
This is a picture of the 1900th century French explore turned environmentalist; Antoine Curie.
Born to the king of Atlantis and a polynesian mother the young aquaman spent his early childhood beneath the surface in Atlantis. Then a freak tragedy orchestrated by an enemy of the royal family wrecked h is home and separated him from his family. Stranded, he floated to the surface and found himself among his mother's family who recognized him and took him in. As he grew people were a bit weary of the pale skin he inherited from his Atlantean father but the young Aquaman proved to be a formidable warrior among his people and as an adult seeks to overthrow the usurper in his kingdom beneath the waves while he balances living in the surface and undersea worlds.

The next theme will be posted soon! Thanks again for your participation!
