‘Aquaman: The Becoming’ to Feature Status Shift For LGBTQ Character

After appearing in the DC Pride special on June 8, Jackson Hyde, AKA Aqualad, will undergo a name change in the DC Comics miniseries, Aquaman: The Becoming coming in the fall.

The character made his in-continuity debut in the fourth issue of the event comic Brightest Day in August 2010 and was featured prominently in the animated series, Young Justice, which followed the adventures of the sidekicks/ proteges of heroes like Batman, The Flash, and Aquaman.

Over the course of the Young Justice series, it is revealed the Aqualad, who also goes by the name Kaldur’ahm, is bisexual.

The comic version of Aqualad is revealed to be, at first, straight but after a shift in the DC Comics continuity, Jackson is written as gay. The character also got his own graphic novel last summer which focused on his origin and coming out story.

In Aquaman: The Becoming, Jackson will take up the title of Aquaman. Though Aqualad became Aquaman in the third season of Young Justice and took up the mantle in the DC Comics event Future State, the six-part miniseries will be where Jackson actually takes over being Aquaman.
