Aquaman: King of The Seven Seas
Arthur Cury AKA Orin
Aquaman member of the DC comics Justice League of America.
Aquaman being a super hero that most won't admit to liking. He may not be on top of your list of favorite superheroes but an interesting one nonetheless. Aquaman being like Marvel's Namor he is a protector of the water life and King of Atlantis. Unlike Namor the Sub-Mariner Aquaman doesn't restrict himself to protecting only Atlantis.
More to come.
Aquaman has the powers you would expect from a water based superhero."He has the ability to breathe underwater. He possesses superhuman durability high enough to remain unaffected by the immense pressure and the cold temperature of the ocean depths, this also makes him tough enough to be invulnerable to machine gun fire. He also possesses superhuman strength. He can swim at very high speeds, capable of reaching speeds of 10,000 feet per second and can swim up Niagara Falls. He can see in near total darkness and has enhanced hearing granting limited sonar. Although he can remain underwater indefinitely without suffering any ill effects, Aquaman grows weak if he remains on land for extended periods. However, when Batman invented Aquaman's water suit he was able to walk on land for an indefinite amount of time" (Wikipedia)
How does these powers give you the cartoon adaptations like the one below?
New 52 Picture of Aquaman
New Look In New 52
In this particular picture (image to the right) it doesn't look that good. But if you look to the one above it's only decent. They probably could of done a whole lot better with this character's suit.
Like in the Injustice: Gods Among Us game he looked way cooler and a threat to his opponent. Given that these two renditions are from different points in Aquaman's life it's forgiveable. But, still disappointing to not see something new that is significant like Shazam's change of look.
