Controling the weather (lighting) happened during the current arc because he is currently wielding Poseidon's Trident.

IRRC he had hyrdokenesis during the time he had the water hand.

Aquaman has no natural ability to control elements. The current trident he has is from Poseidon which allows him to channel his power.

I think there might be an argument that he can. It's a pretty weak argument, tbf, because he's always portrayed using the trident when controlling elements, but Poseidon gave him the weapons, and powers, of a god; and Wonder Woman stated he was wielding the power of Poseidon as an example of the terminology being used. The entire run has been vague on whether it's him or the trident when it's been mentioned so I've been entertaining the idea that he might still have some ability even without the trident. I could see the writers allowing him to manifest powers and requiring a focus, and continuing with some abilities going back to his previous trident.

I expect you are correct. I just see the other concept as a possibility so far.

@ashrym: I think the Poseidon blessing just gives him the ability to weild the trident like activate it's power, but you'd right his powers are pretty vague and need more in depth explanation like how they work for one.

It does more than that. The otherworldly banefield, for example, burned Aquaman's flesh before Poseidon's blessings but those blessings protected him from that same effect later.

@ashrym: Yeah that was interesting. Hoping it gets touched upon I still think the elemental stuff is being done with the trident maybe being channeled by Arthur.
