Born during the war with the surface, Arther Curry was battle hardened from his first breathe. He took the role of Emperor of Atlantis at the age of 21 and in doing so he did something his Empress mother chose not to do, made peace with the surface by joining The League. Flash forward twenty years The Atlantean is the sole surviving member of The League after the Great War between the heroes and the villains of the world. Arthur Curry is left to rebuild The League, while battling any of the evil left in the world.
yeah... the back story is a work in progress, i'll give more details as i flesh out the world, i really should write it down somewhere. Anyways the whole idea for Earth XII, not Earth 12, started when DC announced the reboot/DCnU thing, i said fuck it i'll make my own earth and here we are.
Recipe's a pretty simple one-
Base- DCUC Indigo Tribesmen Atom
Heads- DCUC Dr. Fate(helmet)/ NECA Kratos to which i finished the beard
Boots- HML Ronin
Right Arm- DCUC Copperhead
Weapons- Shortened DCUC wave 2 AM trident so it's more like a battleaxe, and the Anchor weapon is a couple bat grapples and random chains pieced together
First thing i knew i wanted to do when i though about this guy, was a old rusted anchor type weapon, similar to the Blades of Chaos in GoW, and i wanted him to look as badass as possible. Aquaman always gets a bum rep because NO ONE, outside of Morrison, knows how to write him. He's the fucking Ruler of Atlantis, not some speedo wearing seahorse riding bitch, no offense Namor. He should look like a battle hardened warrior who doesn't take lip from anyone, including Batman, while retaining a sense of regalness. I really wanted to do some tattoos like Aqualad's, but i'm going put in some more work before i'm ready to do fine detail work again. Overall I'm very please with how he turned out.
