Alongside my redesign for Project:Rooftop, I’d also intended to try a complete conceptual recreation of Aquaman from the ground up. I was considering that we’ve had (depending on how you count them) at least three and as many as five different Aquamen in the character’s seventy years of publishing, and yet they were each basically identical in terms of powers, origin and even costume (and, in fact, were very similar to OTHER undersea superheroes here and there).
So, with that in mind, I decided to go with AQUAMAN, THE LIVING SECRET SEA, elemental titan and King of All the Oceans. A colossus composed of pure water, strange creatures of the depths literally swim in his veins. He is so tremendous that stormclouds form over his body and fall back into him as rain! I don’t know where he got them red pants, but it must have been somewhere awesome.
