Aquaman swims with the fishes. He also talks to the fishes. Some even say he parties hearty with the fishes, but that’s a story for another time. Now, however, he’s getting a little damp competition from a new wet hero in town – Waterguy.
Aquaman Is Waterguy
“We wanted a hero to be noble. Our developers also wanted a wet hero. Let’s say we wanted a guy who was all wet. Now, after much thought, we have him – Waterguy!”
This was the opening statement of Waterguy’s creators, after we questioned them to what the hell was going on with their character. Here is our chat with Waterguy’s creators.
LT: Appreciate the sit down chat. Waterguy? Really?
WGC: Sure. Why not. He’s all wet. Isn’t that also what’s up with Aquaman?
LT: He’s a complex DC Comics character, an icon. He’s the all mighty ruler of the Earth’s oceans. He’s royalty.
WGC: Yeah. He’s a watery dude. The dude is always damp. Our Waterguy is even more wet.
LT: OK….. This is getting kinda weird. Let’s get to the name – why not. Did that come easily to you guy?
WGC: We were going to go with Waterdude or Waterman. Wetguy and Wetman were also on the table. Right up to the end, we were going to name him Dampdude.
LT: Fascinating. And his power is similar to Aquaman’s?
WGC: Kinda sorta. He doesn’t talk to fish like Aquaman. He talks to the water.
LT: Waterguy chats with – water?
WGC: Isn’t that too cool?
LT: (whispers WTF) Wow. OK. Thanks for the chat, it was liquid for sure.
