  THIS is the action figure that started it all for me...!


AQUAMAN - circa 1976


This Pocket Action Hero didn't leave my pocket for YEARS...

(Correction: tis truly a Comic Action Hero, aye!)

He went with me everywhere I went;

to PORTUGAL, when I finally visited my grand-mother there

and threaded upon the land of my hot-tempered ancestors!

He went with me all over North America -

spent summers swimming in the pool with me -

and, of course, he would also wage battle against villainy

while I was simply soaking in the bath tub!

And then came a somber day

when it was all just too much for the Pocket Action Hero...

Some wear and tear on his plastic constitution

-along with the simple fact that he was NOT supposed to

go everywhere the "actual Aquaman" would easily access-

made the toy unravel before my very eyes!

In the midst of battle, as I recall...

I was heartbroken.

My Pocket Action Hero - my favorite -

was totally and irremediably out of commission.

In fact, he was incapacitated for good.

I had lost my best childhood playmate - ever!

(Because other kids were annoying sometimes -
the Aquaman here pictured above never was!
The best playmate is the one that never annoys!
A playmate that battled evil wherever I'd tell him to
and ran afoul of the same crap as I did -
which, in those days, were simply instances
when my bedtime came too early
or the dessert wasn't ice cream! *lol*)

Over the years, I acquired other Aquamen of fortune -

there were many throughout the years too:

the MEGO original, the Super Powers classic,

the Pocket Super Hero that is pictured below...

None would ever replace, in my heart, my first hero!
Not even the super-hero character himself,
in whatever media he's appeared in since!

Name:

Born in the Age of Aquarius, destined to seek out truths in many an art form, trained as a historian and a journalist but truly a prose-lover... Luciano is out to dispel any clich├ęs and reinvent them all both to the tune of a little something called the truth as also to his own image - being old-fashioned, he does not mind that distinction one infinitesimal tiny bit at all...! "There are two ways to spread the light; be the candle... or the mirror that reflects It." I have chosen to be the latter... okay? ~*~ "To be not only a seeker of light... but a dream weaver of light" ~*~ For as surely as the moon reflects the light from the sun, you and I can reflect the Light from Above - and be, indeed, the light of this world! ~*~*~*~
