Artist depicts Aquaman in the tragic light of the BP oil spill.

The Gulf Coast oil spill may have claimed its biggest casualty yet: a superhero.

Comic book bloggers have taken artistic license in reporting the tragedy at the Deepwater Horizon oil rig.

The initial report came from a blogger Jeff Jordan who said that Aquamans body was found washed up on the shore of Mobile, Alabama, covered in oil after a heroic effort to stop the spill.

This prompted the comic site Aquaman Shrine create this mocking cover of the underwater hero, lying in a pool of oil with the BP logo tragically placed across his chest.

No word yet on whether Hydro-Man or Iceman will spring into action.

Meanwhile BP continues efforts to stop the tragic spill after a series of failed attempts.
