This month in DC History
Jackson Hyde was introduced into the DCU in 2010. He was the son of Black Manta and became Aqualad during the events of Brightest Day. His tenure was cut short due to Flashpoint and the New 52 but he did get some more air time on Young Justice where he went by his Atlantean name Kaldur’ahm. As far as I know, he hasn’t returned in the New 52.
What else happened in 2010?
- Blackest Night ended with several people coming back to life with a purpose. I read it all (in Brightest Day) and don’t remember what that purpose was but I believe it was the fight Swamp Thing. That sounds about right.
- Bruce Wayne returned by traveling through time and being different Batmen. This marked an area where everyone got a Batman, It was like Oprah giving out cars. You get a Batman and you get a Batman.
- Superman and Wonder Woman both had anniversaries. Superman #700 contained three stories written by Dan Jurgens, James Robinson, and J. Michael Straczynski. J. Michael Straczynski also wrote in Wonder Woman #600 with others like Geoff Johns and Gail Simone.
