"Rejoice, my son, for thou hast chosen the Amulet of Right o'er the Sword of Might! Therefore, let there be beauty and strength--power and compassion--honour and humility, mirth and reverence--within you... Be one with thy brothers of the Round Table--with Arthur and Lancelot, Gawain and Galahad, with them all... Be thou what they were--a hero! Strive forever to maintain the rule of right--of law and justice--against those who live and rule by might."
Chris Claremont, "From the Holocaust--A Hero!" Captain Britain No. 2 (20 Oct. 1976)

Return of King Arthur Curry
Arthur Curry, the king of Atlantis best know by his superhero name Aquaman, appears poised to take center stage in the upcoming Brightest Day series--26 biweekly issues--from DC. Curry has been through a number of changes in recent years, but, if the promotional art to Brightest Night No. 2 is any indication, he will soon return to his roots, though it is too early to know if writer Geoff Jones will make any use of Curry's association with the Matter of Britain.
