The Man Who Laughs: I kinda liked the mid-90s Aquaman.  Not enough to buy his books, but I didn't biatch when he showed up in JLA.

But I also thought Kyle Rayner was cool, so I'm in the minority I think.

Kyle may have been cool, but his girlfriend was cooler.

/yes, I went there

the opposite of charity is justice: I find it interesting that Namor is perceived as being somewhat of a decent character while Aquaman is considered a Z-lister.  Whats the diff?  Is it nothing more than Namor has one additional ability, flight (while lacking the telepathic control shtick)?

Does Aquaman simply need to be better portrayed that he is as strong and as tough as he is when a small number of writers remember it?

It helps that Namor is a total asshole who clearly bangs Susan Storm every time Reed Richards isn't looking. Because let's face it, Reed Richards is useless. Namor's the amazing Bro-Mariner.

Namor the Sub-Mariner is better. He's like Aquaman, but powered by douchebaggery and rape.

Great. Just what comic book fandom needed: more biatching about Aquaman. Because just ignoring him isn't good enough.

/neutral on Aquaman.

I don't like Aquaman, don't like tradition for tradition's sake, don't like comic book continanity and I don't like DC much and yet this article is so poorly composed that I found myself rooting for Aquaman. Sterling quality as ever always, Kotaku.

Sorry, I think this article makes for a good counter argument.
