Many people don’t know much about Aquaman except how the media portrays him; the joke of the superhero community. I, on the other hand know better.
Aquaman is a superhero appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. Created by Paul Norris and Mort Weisinger, the character debuted in More Fun Comics #73 (November 1941). Initially a backup feature in DC’s anthology titles, Aquaman later starred in several volumes of a solo title. During the late 1950s and 1960s superhero-revival period known as the Silver Age, he was a founding member of the Justice League of America. In the 1990s Modern Age, Aquaman’s character became more serious than in most previous interpretations, with storylines depicting the weight of his role as king of Atlantis
Aquaman (Arther Curry) is one of DC’s greatest superheroes. He is the King of Atlantis, founding member of the Justice League and the third most powerful member of the league in terms of strength; falling behind only Superman and Wonder Woman.
Aquaman has superhuman strength, near invulnerability, he can see in pure darkness, he can swim over 1,000 knots per hour, he could compel the actions of any sea life, he has superhuman speed and reflexes and of course could breath under water.
His current run is Aquaman Vol. 7 and it is probably his best series yet.
