BendtheBar 11-29-2012 01:37 PM : AQUAMAN Evolution: From Laughingstock to New 52 Rock Star


Aquaman may be one of DC's best-selling titles, but the character hasn't always been so high-profile.

Although the character has been around since 1941, Aquaman's revival in popularity has been pretty recent in modern-day comics. Before that, he was.... well... less than beloved by most comic fans.

"I've loved Aquaman since I was a kid watching the Superman/Aquaman Adventure Hour," DC writer Tony Bedard told Newsarama. "I just pretty much assumed back then that Aquaman was of the same stature as Superman.

"Flash forward a few years and I find out that to most comics readers, Aquaman is the Rodney Dangerfield of the Justice League," he said.

In fact, on American television, Aquaman has been ridiculed the last few years on shows like Saturday Night Live, Mad and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.

So what made him well known enough to endure on mainstream TV, yet be the butt of every joke?

And how did he evolve in comic books during the last 70-plus years to become the hero he is today?

As DC is shining a spotlight on Aquaman with the Justice League/Aquaman crossover "Throne of Atlantis," Newsarama takes a look at why and how Aquaman has evolved and endured.

Old Arthur has really made a comeback. Good fanboy buddy says his book is the best of the New 52.

BendtheBar 11-30-2012 12:55 PM : Marvel Prepares for the End of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN's Era


***This article contains spoilers for Amazing Spider-Man #698 and beyond.***

Since the dawn of the "Brand New Day" era in 2008, things have gone pretty well for Peter Parker. Sure, there have been notable hiccups along the way, but he's got his dream job at Horizon Labs, saved the world with the Avengers and joined the Fantastic Four's Future Foundation even his Aunt May is now happily married, albeit to J. Jonah Jameson's father.

That changed with last week's Amazing Spider-Man #698, which revealed that one of his oldest enemies, Doctor Octopus, managed to switch bodies meaning that Doc Ock is running around in Peter Parker's healthy, powerful body, and Spidey is as close to death as someone can reasonably be. And no one else knows. This all leads to December's oversized Amazing Spider-Man #700, which promises another major twist, and also ends the long run of that series (for now, at least this is comic books, after all), and paves the way for the debut of Superior Spider-Man in January, a new series starring a new Spider-Man (who might not Doc Ock, but is said to definitely not to be Peter Parker), from current Amazing creators Dan Slott, Humberto Ramos and Giuseppe Camuncoli, with the addition of artist Ryan Stegman, recently of Fantastic Four.

There's a lot going on with Spider-Man, so we talked to the Marvel senior editor that's been in charage of the character and his world for the past few years Stephen Wacker about how long this has all been developing, how this relates to Spidey's 50-year legacy, leaked spoilers, pointed reactions from passionate fans, and more.
