Aquaman #16 SPOILER REVIEW

Writer: Dan Abnett
Penciller: Brad Walker
Inker: Andrew Hennessy
Color: Gabe Taeb
Cover Price- $2.99





The War is Coming


We start out in a random Lab in New York. We have a guy that is really struggling to control his own actions and we see this scribble from an unknown character. We can only assume that there is some telepathy mind control going on. The guy eventually shoots himself and we then see the perpetrator with glowing eyes, watching the news about Aquaman bringing Atlantis and the World together. We then cut back to Aquaman who is now cleaning up the aftermath starting in his hometown. Some of his local friends are with him like Erika, and he's got some Atlantean folks including Mera. We also notice that Aquaman has some telepathic interception that he can't locate the origin from. He continues on anyway. Him and Mera have a small conversation about the Widowhood, and now Arthur wants to visit them with Mera. Mera says it won't make a difference and that she probably will never become his wife because of the prophecy. Eventually he is found by a hoard of fans and Erika rushes him off. Her and Arthur have this intimate little discussion, and Erika reveals she had a crush on Arthur. This may seem unimportant but I think with the situation with Mera we may see some sort of triangle forming here. Cue another telepathic interception and we cut back to the scary lab. The newest bad
guy is mind controlling a few more what look to be scientists. Eventually they agree to help this guy control Aquaman but more importantly we learn the the bad guy is also Warhead.




Confessional


If Warhead is the Warhead I am thinking of I am actually kind of excited for this. It seems to be a different version of the old Wonder Woman villain but hey this is a rebirth right? Either way this guy seems pretty cool. I think it's going to be a perfect pick up after the Deluge. I'm also anxious to see what happens with Mera. She is such an awesome character and now writers are throwing Erika in the mix; I sense a little triangle about to happen. Who knows, either way I am excited for the next issue. The art again didn't disappoint. I love the green and blue tones and how we are sticking to the traditional Aquaman. This rebirth is honestly one of the best and I can't wait to see where it all goes.

Salvation: ★★★★★★★★★✩
