Aquaman is definatley not the same superhero I grew up watching and reading about. He seems to have undergone a change from his mild mannered full bodied self to a somewhat darker and more disturbed long haired character with a prosthetic left hand. Aquaman Wiki says some bad guy named Charybdis fed Aquaman's hand to piranha. Which comic book or animated TV episode or Movie first told the tale?

New Aquaman

Not the mild mannered Aquaman I remember.

Aquaman made the mistake of thinking a swimming Vietnamese Pot-bellied Pig was an aquatic animal. This also explains why he flies into a rage every time reruns of Green Acres is on basic cable. –  John O Nov 25 '12 at 6:56
