There Is No Unseeing This

I asked about this on Facebook last night, just to determine if a.) I was crazy, or if b.) other people saw it too, and the consensus seemed to be that a.) yes, others saw the same thing, and b.) yes, I'm crazy, and c.) thanks sooo much for bringing this up, the whole thing was kind of a wash. Anyway, it's continued to haunt me, and I feel like the World Must Know...

So...Aquaman's new costume:

Is it just me, or does this look like an upskirt shot featuring his piscine-green penis and scrotum? I mean, it's just... right there, and now that I've seen it, it's never gonna go away. So is it just me?

It's not just me.  Is it?

It is not just you.

The Angelfish love it.

More like algae-green.

Not just you, nope.

Thanks, by the way.

Oh, it's there. It's as subtle as Gilbert Gottfried telling the Aristocrats joke through a bullhorn.

Um, it's not only there, Scott, it appears to be, um, in there, too. Aquaman appears to now be in possession of a somewhat angular, but conveniently placed hoohah.
Also too, THOOOOOOOM!...? Is the ghost of Don Martin writing Aquaman now?

Thank you so very much, Scott, for adding to an already copious store of images I wish I could forget.

Although, considering his main superpower is the ability to coerce fish into doing his dirty work for him, I can understand Aquaman's desire for a more (ahem) intimidating display. But ... holy hoppin' jalapenos! That's one costuming decision that screams feelings of inadequacy.

And I had the same thought as you, Meanie, angular polished gold ladyparts-wise.

As for the sound effect, it could be an homage to Jack Kirby. But if characters sporting hinged feet and names like Bestertester and Fonebone start cropping up in the series, you could be on to something.

sporting hinged feet

Call them that if you like, but to me they will always be "perpetual orgasm toes".

Not coercion as such, it is just that fish are easily persuadable after a few drinks.

You know, if I were a comix character designer, and had an idea like that, I would discard it immediately on the assumption that the Front Editorial Office would never allow it, you should excuse the expression, out of the gate. But I guess I live in a fantasyland of restraint and good taste and subtle design sense?

BTW, Smut, Martin's beings had perpetual orgasm fingers too, didn't they?
