“DROWNED EARTH” finale! Aquaman faces the truth behind Atlantis’ past and must find a way to reclaim the power of his birthright or watch the floodwaters drown everything he has ever loved! With the world at stake and the Justice League on their last sea legs in their battle against the Ocean Lords, Arthur makes the ultimate sacrifice to return balance to land and sea!
Derek: While the finale didn’t quite live up to the promising start, I don’t think we are left with nothing. Although it doesn’t pay off as a complete story in itself, it does give a promising starting point for the forthcoming new direction for Aquaman. I am cautiously optimistic that the new team will use this to break the endless repetitive cycle the character seems stuck in and actually do something fresh with the character.
