Synopsis for "Aquarium"Edit

  • Synopsis not yet written.


  • Issue includes part one of a four-part editorial on the history of Aquaman by Mark Waid.
  • Aquaman chronologically appeared last in Invasion! #2.
  • Issue includes flashbacks of events that took place in Atlantis during the time that Aquaman was gone.
  • The female Atlantean doctor seen in this issue is identified as Doctor Diade in Aquaman Vol 4 #2.


  • The Giant Jellyfish from this issue are likened to that of Adolph Hitler. They preach the values of racial purity and even refer to their invasion as a "final solution".
  • The name of the Atlantean hospital center, AHARD-1, is a rather obvious sexual innuendo. Whether it was the intention of the writers to invoke such a double entendre is unclear.
