Geoff Johns, writer for both titles, told USA:
“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,” Johns says. “There’s all this mythology behind Atlantis that were not really sure of and no one really has any answers, and we’re about to get the answers.”
Reis and Prado are working on designing Atlantis and the Atlanteans, and they’ve also created a new look for Ocean Master, the old Aquaman villain who’s also the hero’s brother and the leader of the Atlanteans’ world-spanning assault.
“Ocean Master’s an interesting character,” Johns says. “He doesn’t dislike his brother — he just thinks his brother is incapable of leading Atlantis and he’s proven over and over he can’t. He thinks his brother’s a little naïve on how it works.
“And if he’s in his way, he’s in his way.”
