AQUAMAN - "King of the Seven Seas"
WHY HE'S COOL
Aquaman often gets maligned as the guy who can talk to fish. But let's face it, being able to breath underwater and swim at 100 knots is pretty cool. He's also the king of Atlantis, that's royal with a standing army at his command. So Aquaman isn't lame, he's just massively underestimated.
As the son of a light house keeper and a Princess of Atlantis, Arthur Curry was born a mutant. The crazy royal politics that drove his mother to the surface, also what took her away from him when he was a boy. Aquaman was unaware of his mothers background growing up, but he knew he was different right off the bat. Being extremely capable in bad situations forced him to become a superhero. Aquaman learned everything about his lineage when Atlantis came looking for the next in line for the throne. While not big on being a king, he does take the job very seriously.
With a successful superhero career, Aquaman became a founding member of the Justice League. He took other gifted Atlantians under his wing as crime fighting partners: Aqualad and Aquagirl. He would marry Mera, who is from another race of water breathers. In some stories they had a child, nick named Aquababy, who sadly was killed by the super villain Black Manta. Aquaman also has a jealous half-brother Orm (although through years of rewriting, their specific relationship is unclear). Orm is also the villain Ocean Master.
Aquaman, of course has the ability to communicate with any marine life, and command them to do his bidding. This is often shown as a form of telepathy. Along with swimming superhumanly fast, he has super strength, endurance and agility. He could easily pick-up a car and throw. Small caliber bullets will bounce off his skin.
Currently played by Jason Momoa, in BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE, and JUSTICE LEAGUE, plus an upcoming AQUAMAN movie. So far little is known about Aquaman, except that he looks nothing like his comicbook self.
