Aqualad, like Robin, was a sidekick created to connect with a younger audience/reader. He fit the sidekick bill to a tie...rescued by his mentor, used silly expressions like "Suffering Sardines", and wore short pants with bare legs. Over the years Aqualad suffered, like most sidekicks, at the hands of comic book writers who used him up for story fodder.
