Aquaman // artwork by Ivan Reis and Joe Prado (2011)
People always dismiss Aquaman as a joke, the guy you can mock in the DC universe because he has the most useless powers on the JLA, I blame Cartoon Network and the old Superfriends cartoon of this, hell even shows like Bing Bang Theroy dismiss the guy like if he was nothing!.
Maybe the new series by the main man Geoff Jhons will make people remember that this guy is a powerhouse in the DC Universe for a reason. Aquaman, very much like Marvel’s Namor The Submariner is royalty. He is the King to all Atlanteans and lord of the seven seas in the DC universe, this guy may not fly but he can swim in 70% of the planet like nobody’s business, he commands all sea life with a though (alive or dead), and in land he can use his telepathy to hurt whoever the hell he wants, this guy skin is as thick as Superman’s and he has almost the same strength of his JLA partner. He also can stand the deepest pressures of the ocean with no need for special equipment, plus he carries around a big golden trident to kick your ass and look good doing it! Let’s give the king some respect!
