Starting in December with issues 15, JL and Aquaman will begin their “Throne of Atlantis” storyline. The story sees the army of Atlantis, being led by long-time Aquaman villain Ocean Master, attacking the surface world.
“There’s still questions of what Atlantis is like and what they do and what they’re capable of and why they exist and who sank Atlantis,” writer Geoff Johns teased to USA TODAY. “There’s all this mythology behind Atlantis that we’re not really sure of and no one really has any answers, and we’re about to get the answers.”
DC also announced that Ivan Reis the artist behind the Aquaman book will be taking his talents to Justice League as seen in the cover to issue #15. Co-publisher Jim Lee will be stepping down from his art duties on the book. The artist who will be taking over Aquaman has yet to be announced.
The team roster seems to have been tweaked a little as SHAZAM is now part of the group, but noticeably absent are Green Lantern and the Flash. Their whereabouts will be revealed when the story gets underway in December.
