I was thinking, since Batman has Damian, Superman has Jon.. we all knew this is coming, Arthur and Mera is getting married. Do you want a "Prince of Atlantis" to join the Aquaman Family ala Jon and Damian? Since DC is going a more hopeful/ optimistic universe, do you think this kind of story might work?

Wouldn't mind it, I liked seeing their son in Batman the Brave and the Bold and they could always adapt the Thanatos storyline. Also the son of both Xebel and Poseidonis thing would be cool Hydrokinetic/Telepathic powerhouse.

They could always plot twist it to for story sake and make it be the son of Aquaman and Siren because of that one event. Not sure how that would be accepted.

Regardless if they get an heir I'd say to wait a year or 2 before anything is done with said character. Maybe twins Boy/Girl, Two boys to continue the curse?

No and I think they should take away Jon while putting Damian in an out of canon universe. If they did do it maybe a daughter would be better to mix it up.

@ecstaticgrace: A twin is good twist, I can see it having a good storyline especially if done right.

@vinomonster: The idea behind it was Pre-Flashpoint their was this recurring element in the Aquaman mythos that he was destined to be enemies with Orm because they're brothers. That there's a curse that Atlantis will always have two heirs to the throne, Brothers fighting for the crown. I think that would be an interesting element brought back.

@ecstaticgrace: Sounds really interesting, I hope to see that in the future. Your thoughts on this one?

I think they redefining the Aquaman mythos if this goes well, I think the idea of a future Twin heir and a story ala game of thrones will be a good story to tell.

@vinomonster: Can't really say I'd rather have confirmation from Johns that he's still personally doing Rise of the Seven Seas. People are starting to suggest it will be a Hitch/Abnett one or the other or maybe both doing the event, but again not sure about the confirmation on that.

Pass. I don't think I would be interested in Arthur having anymore children. Just not into it right now.

@ecstaticgrace: Do you think its cool if ever the son of Arthur and Mera's power set mirrors the power set of Water Hand?

@vinomonster: Ironically I was hoping Joseph Curry "Arthur Joseph Curry" was the long lost son of Aquaman and Mera. Pre-Flashpoint he was to have a portion of the Waterhand inside him because his father Phillip Curry used it to save his life.

I personally wanted the Waterhand to be a missing relic I think it would be cool if it was a glove you put on. I wouldn't mind A.J. or Joseph or whatever Aquaman/Meras' son is named to have the WH it differs a lot in power and the only similarity it has to other characters is its hydrokinetic abilities.

Regardless I think it would be fitting for a king and queen to have an heir to the throne so I'd like to see one.

I will never understand why people are so obsessed with the water hand...
