Marineman looks exactly like Aquaman, with some of the same abilities.  Is this a coincidence? I think not! Image Comics got their idea for Marineman from DC Comics! What a Rip Off1 At least the Sub-Mariner has some differences! This on looks like an exact copy.

Who cares? Is it really hurting you? Is Image comics stealing money from you? Are they putting a gun to your head and forcing you to buy it? I believe all the answers are No

And Namor should not be brought into a conversation about a "rip off" of Aquaman when Aquaman is just a "rip off" of Namor.

Fun fact: Namor made his debut in 1939, a couple of years before Aquaman. 

As for the Marineman deal, the character has obvious similarities, but it's a new twist on that type of character.  Comics do this all the time because almost everything you can think of has been done before, so you have to put a twist on something that already exists.

Well that's the point of Marineman, Ian Churchhill if I remember correctly said he drew superheroes as a kid that were basically a direct rip off of famous heroes, marine man is a rip off of Aquaman, want that's part of the fun.

It's a rip off, no need to get upset over it, just look at all of the superman clones out there.

Aquaman ain't a rip off lol. Just cause aquaman and namor are both atlanteans don't mean they're both rip offs.
