    Titans Academy is a bloated mess so there's definitely no room for him there, either.

Though, Occam's razor tells me that this is probably meant to be how he becomes the Aquaman we see in Future Stste - meaning no confluence . mainly I hope this builds off KSD and Jordan Clark's characterization (that Aqualad was fun and felt interesting to read) and I hope they play to his YJ iteration and give him the name Kaldur'ahm in canon. regardless, i can't wait till we get more details on this, definitely at the top of my most anticipated titles.

    Titans is a team that rotates frequently
    I expect Roy to rejoin eventually and others will leave it

    Not familiar with Olortegui's art, but did a quick Google search. Looks like some Capullo influence with a little Romita, Jr and maybe some Chris Burnham?

    Yeah, I see that as well. It kinda reminds me of Bogdanovic. I'm glad a good artist is on board.

    Yeah, there's no reason why Garth and Roy can't be added to TTA's teaching staff. I think Garth was only excluded because he wasn't a New Teen Titan (he was on the 60s team but not the 80s one) and Roy because the team don't know he's alive.

    It really can't be that hard to just establish he has an honorary Atlantean name.

    you'd think so, yet somehow we're a decade deep since Jackson's been out here and....

    He hasn't had those since his very first appearance, come to think of it.

    His Pre-Flashpoint version had it established Kaldur'ahm was his actual birth name before he was spirited away to the surface and given the name Jackson by his surface Parents (you know sort of a Kal-El, Clark Kent type situation) and I thought that was a good way to reconcile it. But with his Rebirth backstory being pretty different aside from Manta still being his dad they can't go with that (unless they go with Retcon magic of course) but really should at least be an honorary thing.

    Didn't he have Black Hair in the second issue of Future State? And like a mix of Blonde and Black (implying the Blonde is dye) in KSD Aquaman?

    Like how YJ handled Conner/Kon-El.

    Now that you mention it...

    Honestly I can't find myself too excited for this, while I like Jackson, doesn't feel like they've given him anywhere near enough development for him to become Aquaman, in addition in universe he's basically still on his first year.
    It feels too much like they're trying to coast on the popularity of his YJ incarnation despite them being too very different people

    I think maaaaaybe you could still do the honorary name with his mom being Xebellian. Maybe saying it's a name his grandfather had thought of it. Or they could make it a middle name lol.
    I actually never even thought about the dye thing. I definitely want a panel of Jackson coloring his hair now haha.

    I mean between KSD's run and the Future State issues that's really all you need. With KSD he was actively working with Arthur and learning from him, while trying to discover his own brand of heroism. Even had his own solo adventure in trying to rescue. With this being called "The Becoming" he's probably still going to be working to get that mantle and going through more personal stakes. I'm pretty sure by the end it'll all feel extremely natural.
