    So I just finished Aquaman's mini series from 86, and I'm curious did they ever explain what happened to the costume in story I mean? I mean the added benefits it gave to much to jsut give up. (Blending in to undersea currents) I know the artist said it was to hard to consistently draw, but I'm wondering about any canon explanation.

    I really liked it, much more then the traditional orange and green. And it had the added benefit of giving him an advantage with the stealth. Course maybe I'm biased cause that mini series was amazing overall.  
     
    I just had wondered since they never give a reason of why he reverts back to the old costume.

    I think that this was just retconned out a long time ago so there wasn't really an explanation.

    I never saw this one before. It's good, but it doesn't look like Aquaman to me. Now if Aqualad was wearing it, then it'd look fine.

    @batflasharrow96: I don't believe it was retconned out, he just went back to wearing the Orange and Green which is an Atlantean Politcal Prison uniform so I believe he just went back to it for that reason.
     
    @Gambit1024: Yeah and ultimately Thanatos adapted the look when he copied Aquaman exactly.

    I liked it, too, but I gotta admit I like his classic Orange/golden shirt with green pants look as well.

    Just picked that mini series up from a thrift store, whole thing for 2 dollars. After reading it, I like this look more, but the orange and green look works great too.
