“Good luck, Mr. Sisko.”-- Captain Jean-Luc Picard
I’ve loved Star Trek for as long as I can remember. I was a fan of the films (well, the second, third, and fourth anyway) and eagerly embraced TNG when it hit the air. Despite an abiding fandom, I never turned into one of those scary, obsessive fans the franchise is infamous for. Well, not until I saw Deep Space Nine.

Nowadays, comic books and their title characters are getting revamps, remakes, make overs, and reboots out the wazoo. Back in 1986, it was a pretty big deal. DC Comics rocked comic bookdom to its core with a mini-series debuting a brand new set of duds for its king of the sea, Aquaman. It was quite a departure from his original, more well known orange and green wet suit. (At least they kept him platinum for blonde's sake!) I should also note that mini-series weren't as common back then either, because of the newsstand set up situation. Since the sea-faring superhero hadn't had a series in a while and lost some of his luster thanks to his portrayal in the legendary Saturday morning Superfriends cartoon, I assume DC wanted to make some noise while bringing back the nautical hunk.
