With the first issue of Emperor Aquaman comes the answer to one of my bigger questions. See, Aquaman is no slouch, but…he lacks the raw power needed to sink a continent. Superman lacks that kind of power, so how did Aquaman get so powerful that he could achieve such a task?
A mutual defense pact turned backstabbing, as Aquaman’s Geo-Pulse is revealed to us. Designed by Vulko, it’s an oversized bomb…with Brion “Geo-Force” Markov being used as an unwilling power source.
All he wanted was to save his people from potential war, but instead he became the weapon of their destruction. Poor Brion.
