Superman FanAdded by Superman Fan

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.[2]

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).[3] 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.[4]

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.[5]

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.[6]

Personal life

Not much is known about Aquaman's personal life, but he seems to have a special friendship with Wonder Woman, and he may even be in a romantic relationship with her, as he is constantly seen with her in her Invisible jet. Despite rumors that they may be in a relationship, Aquaman is married to Mera. Aquaman is apparently a fan of The Beatles, and he really likes their song With a Little Help from My Friends. He plays mentor to Aqualad in his hometown of Poseidonis.
