So now we know we’re building to an Aquamen ongoing series. That’s a little disappointing for yours truly. I was hoping they were doing something similar to Superman: Son of Kal-El, where the classic hero steps aside so the younger hero takes over. That would give Jackson a nice spotlight for himself. But apparently it’s not to be.

The Atlantis vs. Xebel political side of things isn’t really doing it for me. The more this story zeroes in on its main hero, the better.

Not much happens with Jackson here. In fact, this is actually more of a Mera centered issue. I’m not sure how I feel about that, as this is supposed to be Jackson’s “becoming” after all. Plus, we’ve only got six issues to work with.

As an on-boarding point for the Jackson Hyde character, what we’ve gotten so far works well in terms of establishing who he is, where he comes from, what his status quo is, his supporting characters, etc. I just wish we’d gotten to spent a little more time with him.
