No offense, Aquaman...

...but I really don't think you should be able to bring a trident with you into the United Nations. I mean, I trust you with it, but I'm not sure the other representatives would necessarily feel safe with the big guy from Atlantis waving around his deadly three-pronged spear like that.

And what if other countries asked if they could bring in their weapons, you know? Like, "What do you mean I can't bring in my mourning star? It's a ceremonial mourning star, each of its spikes representing one of the virtues of my country. Come on, you let Aquaman bring in a freaking trident!" I really think we're just asking for trouble here.

Like you're going to tell Aquaman he can't carry his trident? I'm surprised he's even in the UN. It's the first time I've seen it.

Also, it's the first time I noticed David Seville is the Ambassador of Armenia. (The original version, not the 80's character model.) That just makes the comic even better than it was.
