Aquaman Johngy?

I have to admit I was tempted to grab the Aquaman costume when I saw it just hanging there at the 2012 Motor City Comic Con.  How many chances would I ever get to dress fully as Aquaman?
The costume looked so sad and lonely just hanging there.  Much like the actual Aquaman, the suit needed life breathed into it.  Sure I don't look like the traditional Auaman, but I would bring energy and gusto to the role.  Besides, the writers have changed several things about Aquaman over the years to raise interest.  Why not have a Johngy Aquaman.  I think it would be interesting.
I also have to laugh at the irony of a Robin costume hanging next to it.  Often these two superheroes are listed as the "most useless" superheroes.  I do not agree with that opinion.  Again, I just think Aquaman needs better writers to bring him back to the mainstream audience.
This brings me back to the Johngy Aquaman.  I am ready, willing and able to go anytime.  If the writers are willing to think outside of the box a little (or a lot), I would love to don the orange and green!
