New Aqualad to debut in Brightest Day, Young Justice cartoon

Back in April DC announced a new Young Justice cartoon starring Superboy, Robin and several other young heroes, including a Black Aqualad. "...a lot of people asked who the new Aqualad was," DC CCO Geoff Johns wrote on the Source blog today. "And a lot of people thought they’d have to wait for the show to start. But you won’t."

Turns out the new Aqualad will debut in comic book form as well; witness the cover to Brightest Day #10:

"Aqualad’s story actually begins in a few short weeks in BRIGHTEST DAY #4," Johns said. "I won’t tell you much yet, but I will tell you – he has no idea he’s about to become Aqualad. In fact, he lives in one of the driest places in America – Silver City, New Mexico."

(And yes, I'm purposely not going with the obvious joke here ... I'll leave that for the comments section.)
