You know who'll cap your *** without batting an eyelash?
O.G. Aquaman, that's who. Golden Age Aquaman would just as soon kill you as look at you.
Between this and Batman snapping a Cossack's neck, I'm beginning to think the Golden Age was not a place for the faint of heart.
I kind of appreciate how far out of its way the caption goes to avoid saying that Aquaman shot someone. He pulls the trigger, sure, but who are we to say that the bang or the scream are necessarily results. Correlation isn't always causation.It's harder to appreciate the use of a gun, when there are so many more creative ways that a man who can tear apart a submarine with his bare hands can kill someone. Talk about lazy...

This was before Aquaman discovered the joys of capturing his foes in humiliating ways, and making sure their fellow prisoners know all about it.
"He pulls the trigger, sure, but who are we to say that the bang or the scream are necessarily results."And, in fact, Aquaman is not shooting anyone; it's just a typical Golden Age trick.
