Aquaman: The Becoming #1 is in stores from DC Comics on Tuesday, kicking off a mini-series that will see Jackson Hyde promoted to co-Aquaman alongside his mentor, the other Aquaman, Aquaman. It leaves open important questions, such as who the fish will listen to when two Aquamen are talking to them. But before Hyde can assume his new role, he must first overcome being framed for a domestic terrorism attack on the Atlantean royal palace by a group called The Deluge. Yes, that's right, just because his dad is notorious villain Black Manta, Atlanteans are claiming Aqua-9/11 was an inside job… and Jackson Hyde is behind it all! Check out a preview of the issue below.

Jackson Hyde finally has it all. Mentors who support him, a community that loves him, an honest relationship with his mother, a cute new guy in Amnesty Bay who's caught his eye, and access to Aquaman's private training facility in Atlantis. Well, he had it all—until that training facility and half of the Atlantean palace got blown to kingdom come with Jackson in them. Now Jackson stands accused of wrecking the life he worked so hard to build. Aqualad's going to need all of his skills, wit, and cunning just to prove his own innocence, let alone graduate from sidekick to Aquaman!
