Hating on Aquaman based solely on his sh*tness on Super Friends makes as much sense as hating on Batman for Adam West's corny TV Batman or Joel Schumacher's lousy Batman films.

The character has made huge improvements since the early 90's and the Aquaman on Batman: The Brave and The Bold was 12 levels of awesome. Same with the Aquaman in Justice League and JL Unlimited.

It helps that Namor is a total asshole who clearly bangs Susan Storm every time Reed Richards isn't looking. Because let's face it, Reed Richards is useless. Namor's the amazing Bro-Mariner.

Reed Richards?  Mr. Fantastic?   Mr 10000000 sex toys at once?    Can penetrate an entire city block simultaneously unassisted?      Susan chooses Reed every time.    How could she not?    And yes, every girl is and should be jealous.   Susan laughs at porn because "that's supposed to be big?"

Namor is lucky Richards is a one woman man or all the women of Atlantis would be worshiping at his feet.

All well and good on a country with coastline, but let's see him try to do damage to Germany.


You're kidding, right?

The Man Who Laughs: I kinda liked the mid-90s Aquaman.  Not enough to buy his books, but I didn't biatch when he showed up in JLA.

But I also thought Kyle Rayner was cool, so I'm in the minority I think.


Kyle may have been cool, but his girlfriend was cooler.

/yes, I went there

Hobodeluxe: Reed has a penis that can be as big as it needs to be. Why would Sue want someone who smells like tuna?


Because Reed is in his lab all day and has nearly killed the FF with his inventions several times. If I were Sue I would divorce Reed and take up with Submariner. Reed is probably masturbating with a computer as I type this.

JLU succeeded in making Aquaman a badass.


Just like Young Justice actually makes freakin' Sportsmaster seem like a guy you would not want to fark with.

Hobodeluxe: Bloody William: the opposite of charity is justice: I find it interesting that Namor is perceived as being somewhat of a decent character while Aquaman is considered a Z-lister.  Whats the diff?  Is it nothing more than Namor has one additional ability, flight (while lacking the telepathic control shtick)?

Does Aquaman simply need to be better portrayed that he is as strong and as tough as he is when a small number of writers remember it?

Reed also has the sex drive of Stephen Hawking. Not exactly the most attentive husband.

Hell, the guy is king of a super-advanced society that covers ~75% of the planet, can telepathically control any-and-everything living in the oceans (including the local Cthulhu knockoff), is super fast, durable and strong (semi-comparable to Superman, as I recall), and depending on the incarnation, has a badass trident hand.

But nope! Because of that idiotic Superfriends cartoon, Aquaman is "the guy who talks to fish" in the public consciousness. God, that era of cartoons sucked.

I just bought Peter David's Aquaman run.

Even though Aquaman is traditionally a shiatty character, I was willing to blow the cash on the book, because you really can't go wrong with a Peter David book.

/Will Pfeiffer's Sub Diego run from the mid-2000s was pretty good, too.

//and Aquaman's 60s stories, reprinted in the one Aquaman Archives volume, were wonderfully stupid. There was one 6 page story about the time Aquaman built an underwater hospital for sea creatures. There were enough ideas in those 6 pages to give Brian Michael Bendis 18 issues and a major crossover event, with a page of nine panels of a static shot of a fish going "glub... er... uh... glub."
