Aquaman on Storm

Aquaman is an aquatic superhero with the ability to breathe underwater, super strength, and the ability to communicate with marine life. Aquaman is the King of the undersea city of Atlantis. He is a founding member of the SuperFriends. He occasionally uses a large seahorse named Storm for transportation.

Background Information

On the parallel-universe of Earth-One, Aquaman's real name was Arthur Curry, the son of Tom Curry, a lighthouse keeper, and Atlanna, a water-breathing outcast from the lost, underwater city of Atlantis. Due to his heritage, Aquaman discovered as a youth that he possessed various superhuman abilities, including the powers of surviving underwater, communication with sea life, and tremendous swimming prowess.[5]

Eventually, Arthur decided to use his talents to become the defender of the Earth's oceans and its inhabitants, starting a career as "Aquaboy." As Aquaboy, he eventually met Superboy (Earth's only other super-powered superhero at the time).[6] Eventually, Arthur grew up and changed his name to "Aquaman." He soon became included in the newly formed Justice League of America team, joining them on their very first adventure.[7]

Around this time, Aquaman also began gaining his familiar cast of allies and enemies, which introduced Aqualad, an outcast orphan from Tritonis, a another lost city from Atlantis whom Aquaman takes in.[8]

Sadly years later, Black Manta, as part of a trap, abducts Mera and Aquaman's infant son, leading to the death of Aquaman's boy.[9]

Personal life

Not much is known about Aquaman's personal life, but he seems to have a special friendship with Wonder Woman, as he is constantly seen with her in her Invisible jet. He is married to Mera and is a mentor to Aqualad in his hometown of Poseidonis. He is also apparently a fan of The Beatles in particular their song: With a Little Help from My Friends.

Aquaman's popular catchphrases

Powers and Abilities



Using Aquapathy

  • Atlantean Physiology: The Atlanteans are offshoots of humanity that are biologically adapted to the deep ocean environment. All their abilities are by-products of their bodies being adapted to survive unprotected in the tremendous pressures of the ocean depths.
    • Enhanced Physiology: His bloodstream is filled with an amino acid that keeps his body from freezing in the ocean depths, although his own temperature is naturally quite high, allowing his muscles the heat they need to swim at such high speeds. This amphibious physiology / hybrid physiology means he can survive indefinitely underwater or on land (though he would still need occasional contact with water to survive) this length can be prolonged by the humidity in the air.
    • Superhuman Strength: He can lift approximately 8 tons.
    • Superhuman Stamina
    • Superhuman Speed: Aquaman can swim at superhuman speed.
    • Superhuman Durability: He can survive at depths of up to 3,400 feet below surface level. His body contains fluids that adjust to give him buoyancy at varying depths. His body also produces gases that push out against the ocean pressures as heavily as they push in, preventing him from being crushed at great depths. His body is also highly impervious to physical injury.
    • Aquatic telepathy: He has the ability to telepathically communicate with sea creatures
    • Animal Control: He can control the minds of virtually any marine creature, forcing them to do his will.
    • Hydrokinesis / Water Control: He inherited the ability to mystically control water and water-based solutions for a variety of effects. He can manipulate water currents, create whirlpools and boil or freeze vast bodies of water.
    • Superhuman Agility
    • Superhuman Reflexes
    • Enhanced Senses: Aquaman has sonar hearing, allowing him to zero in on submarines and anything else in the dark watery deep. He also has the ability to see in the murky depths of the ocean allows him exceptional night vision while on land. Tempest has excellent close range vision and he can see particularly well in low light. He is partially color blind, almost unable to distinguish between black, green, and blue.



  • Water Deprivation: If Aquaman stays out of the water for an hour or so, he will start to weaken, and eventually die.
