Actually, the new Aqualad is a creation of DC, and was intro'd in Brightest Day. (I guess... I mean, I don't actually really read comics.)

I believe Garth will make an appearance in the show (his existence was mentioned at last year's SDCC), but much like Speedy, won't be part of the team. (The Arrow carrier role will instead be going to Artemis, Green Arrow's niece.)

From this released clip, it looks like Speedy/Red Arrow, will be around, but a bit of a loner.

Sure, this show isn't slavish to the comics, but that's reason for the whole Earth-16 excuse. It isn't the same universe as the comics, so the writers are free to do whatever they please. That by no means makes it a bad show, just not a continuation of Justice League: Unlimited (if that was what you were hoping for).

Actually I did learn that the new Aqualad was intro'd (yes I'm stealing that actually) in Brightest Day. What is totally hilarious is that his father is Aquaman's nemesis, Black Manta. And just in case you thought the name was a coincidence



Hey also will someone please explain to me how Superman and Martian Manhunter both have nieces or little sisters or whatever? Like seriously what are the odds that two men from dead worlds would BOTH stumble upon a distant relative?

EDIT: Ok so no I'm not against them taking their own spin around the DCU per se... Bruce Timm's/ Paul Dini's productions weren't 100% accurate either. But even though I overall enjoyed it, the opener wasn't especially brilliant and just had me kind of bored right from the start (boo hoo hoo, the justice league won't let us into their moon base. i thought they trusted us! et al, more pouting, etc etc...). I can see these characters actually getting a little better in an episodic format though. However, bringing in the new Aqualad 'Jackson Hyde' is another fairly transparent attempt at making a show ethnically diverse. Which I guess I'm fine with if it's meaningful - Jon Stewart as a Green Latern actually worked for me although his original comic book story was basically the same thing where it was all about Hal Jordan learning how not to say things like 'you people'

But also I just think the Aqualad role is extremely 3rd tier in a way that none of the other characters even approach, and I kind of liked the idea of DC just accepting that they created a terrible character in the original Aqualad and sticking with it.

Ignoring all THAT,

I hope "The Cape" is powerful itself as opposed to it giving him un-cape related powers.

If the cape can turn into wings and be used as a shield and as a bag of holding and such, cool, if the cape gives him super-strength for some dumb-ass reason, bleh.

This might disappoint you but from what I've seen and heard, its just a cape. Just a cape that some random dude has "mastered."

Well at one point he used the cape as like a tentacle to grab a weapon out of a guy's hand. I thought it was magical though, like it would move and block bullets. This "mastering the art of the cape" is kind of stupid.

At least this show isn't like "superheroes...IN THE REAL WORLD!!!" like Heroes, though, it's very much "superhero in superhero world and there are like 1000 super villains" or what have you.

I have very little TV exposure to any DC hero besides Batman and a little Superman, so this might seem ignorant xP

By day he is a superhero, by night, he's the host of the Daily Show.

EDIT: I'm not so much bothered about Aqualad cause like... fuck Aqualad.
