Brief description from dc.fandom.com: The Others were a small group of individuals that discovered, and subsequently protected the Dead King’s Atlantean Weapons.

Now that that’s over with, here are some discussion questions:

  1. A few members within the team are romantically involved (ie. Aquaman and Mera, Sky Alchesay and Aaron Cole, Ya’Wara and Kahina (kinda), etc.). How do you think these internal relationships affected the team’s dynamic?
  2. Why do you think Aaron Cole never officially joins The Others?
  3. If you had to look after any of the Atlantean artifacts, which would you choose? Why?
  4. What was your favorite part of the series? Why?
  5. The official team name is “The Others,” so why do you think the series is called “Aquaman and the Others?”
