Sunday Trending Topics: What Is Aquaman’s Secret?

Who destroyed Atlantis? What is the secret of Aquaman’s trident? I don’t know the answer to any of these questions, and though I’m just a casual fan, I’ve found myself defending the character quite a bit lately.  He’s one of very few characters to sustain a solid story-starring run from the Golden Age through the 1970s (that’s More Fun 73-107, Adventure Comics 103-284, Showcase #30-32, then Aquaman 1-56, in order, and not counting stuff like Justice League appearances).  Then last month, of course, he outsold every Marvel comic for the month. And now here he is, last but not least, topping BC’s trending topics.  That all adds up to a pretty important character, both historically and currently.
