Is that a Yellow Tang? I really want it to be a Yellow Tang because I love those fish, but I think maybe the dorsal fin isn’t shaped quite right… Dangit, now I’m gonna spend the day wondering what kind of fish that is.
None of my fish were ever sympathic about my problems, either. Serves ‘em right that they all died.
Finally, Aquaman phones DC Comics Editor in Chief Dan Didio: “Listen man, you gotta give me a new name and a better set of powers. I’m tired of all the other JLA members snickering whenever I enter the room, calling me ‘Fish Head’ and putting hooks in my food. Even those kids Wendy and Marvin from the seventies got more respect than I do, and they didn’t even have any powers.”
Things could be worse than having the name Aquaman. There’s a comic (from DC, no less) titled Seaguy. Or the Native American name, Talks With Fish. And even his sidekick is better off named Aqualad than if he were dubbed Water Boy.
