It's No Mystery, Aquaman

Many people have wrung their hands trying to find reasons why Aquaman became regarded as something of a joke.

It's the fault of the way he was portrayed on Super-Friends!! No, it's the fault of the muggle media, mocking him when they should be admiring his awesomeness!!

Well, folks, I'm here to tell you this:

When your "deadliest battle" is against a guy with a fishing pole, you've done a pretty good job of establishing you own lameness, thank you. No need to blame outsiders.

Even Jim Aparo couldn't make the cover to Aquaman #58 (1977) look not lame. And before you get all uppity, I have some much nicer things to say about Aquaman next week...
