@phoenixdiamond616: Alot of the earth lifting feats of Pre-Flashpoint Superman and WonderWoman are taken out of context. SA Superman and Post-Flashpoint Superman have feats suggesting they can though consistent. GA Wonder Woman is the only version I know who legitimately has a planet lifting feat and Im not sure if its consistent.

160K is dependent and I wouldn't put an exact number.

But new 52 wonder woman is stronger than another version, because she has accumulated strength when she has her brazalets. Without brazelets she is like a goddess (i think).

@phoenixdiamond616: I thought her bracelets being taken off was some sort of beserker mode not a strength increase.

Regardless I thought the thread was being brought up as in lifting strength which Post-Flashpoint WW doesn't really have any lifting feats and alot of Pre-Flashpoint WW's feats are taken out of context.

100+ class is casual for him. Stopping an attack that originally sank Atlantis puts him waaay above that.

Does Aquaman have the strength of Poseidon now with his trident and powers?

@coolcat4: No I wouldn't say that unless it ever is said. He has borrowed power the extent of the power is still to be determined.

@ecstaticgrace: Ok thanks. i thought he had only the trident and that is where his extra powers came from. But it kept saying that he had the power of a god so i got confused.

@coolcat4: Im not sure what that was implying confused me as well I assume it's the Trident and not Aquaman maybe Poseidon gave him the ability to wield it while others can't like Pre-Flashpoint.

@ecstaticgrace: Ya that would make sense. i like his new powers, but i don't really care for his armor.

He can definitely lift at least 100k short tons.

Tho he is inconsistent as ****

@chimeroid: I'd say Superman and Martian Manhunter are more inconsistent as of Post-Flashpoint.

Post-Flashpoint Aquaman seems pretty on point throughout. Pre-Flashpoint varies due to different writers having different thoughts on where the character stands.

@Coolcat4 Yeah I'm not big on the armor sadly the artist had better designs he passed on for some reason.

Personally would of like to see #5 so I could say Aquamoa appeared in comics it also would of fit in with the on the run theme.

For the armor i have to chip in. New artist is really not that good. I have seen better art from amateurs. It doesnt compare to the last one.

@chimeroid: I want the guy who did the Convergence interiors. Those were sexy as hell.

Manapul is doing Earth-1 Aquaman...that's gonna be amazing too.

@fallschirmjager: The art in that book was awesome it's was pretty unique to the various art forms I've seen in books definitely think it would work well with Aquaman on the main title.

@coolcat4: Glad you agree. @chimeroid: Only time I liked the armor was in the Looney Toons variant I just thought it was drawn well still don't like it on Aquaman though the color is real dull.

Aquaman was strong enough to break Wonder Woman's grip when she was behind him and had leverage holding him in a strangle. His showing against Hercules and grappling with MMH leads me to believes he's actually the physically stronger of the two. Pretty similar at any rate.

@alex_1333: Nothing above what he's been shown capable of doing before Rebirth.

The Trench feat by Johns and Scepter feat seem to remain to be his personal best.

I may be wrong on this but based on the pressure being around 16k pounds per square inch and based on Arthur being 6'1" and 325 lbs it gives him a surface area of around 4365 square inches.

With the being the case then his body pressure wise is enduring around 70 million pounds total when he's at the bottom of the Marianas trench. If this is correct then his body is WAY under the limit of what he should be able to stand.. I would think not just bullets but direct strikes from tank rounds should cause him little to no harm. And considering what strength it must take to throw a submarine from the bottom of the ocean floor to the top AND out of the water would definitely strength wise put him in the category of some of the strongest in DC and even able to give some of the strongest in marvel more than a handful. I can't see Wonder Man or the Thing throwing a sub that far.

@Alex_1333: other than taking on Superman and later on the Shaggy Man one thing he did when fighting the United States Army he asked Mera how far it was to the Potomac River, she said 8 miles he jumps holding her and the White House satellites picked him up two miles short of the river. He jumped 6 miles and even the chief of staff thought he was flying.

he's a casual 300k+ tonner so he's up there I say he's a low top tier in overall power so in supes ww mm class just on the lower end

@vincent1967: Welcome to the vine. Aquaman causing an eruption casually would put his striking at above nuke level ignoring that this was at the bottom of the ocean.

His trench feat should be in the millions of tons to disregarding the fact again he's at the bottom of the ocean.

Sealing the trench implies he covered the entirety of the trench. To prevent an entire race from leaving.

@EcstaticGrace: thank you! Did a little digging on Arthur throwing the submarine from the ocean floor. He told Topo that it was a remodeled Russian Submarine.. I googled Russian Class Subs and found out that the one in the book is a Alpha/Alfa Class sub which is 267 feet long and 2300 tons at the surface BUT 3200 TONS submerged or 6.4 MILLION pounds under water. The maximum depth of the sub is around 1,200 Ft below sea level but with it being redesigned by the Scavenger AND in the background before Aquaman throws it clearly and completely out of the ocean you can see a mountain range in the background PLUS he tells Tula and The Drift to stay on the ocean floor to evade the sonar of the subs. Pushing on a tectonic plate is highly impressive but with the sub it's hard numbers to apply directly to Arthurs strength level.. And since he did it with relatively ease it may be more impressive than lifting the cruise ship because the average depth of the Atlantic is 2.5 miles deep!! Throwing a 6 million pound submarine 2.5 miles from the ocean floor and out, lifting a ocean liner, pushing a tectonic plate with enforce to break it, jumping 6 miles with a single bound, getting in a fight with Superman on several occasions and at least one fight with Wonder Woman and enduring the punishment as well as dishing it out, all out brawl with the Shaggy Man who's literally above Doomsday levels when it comes to power and adaptability. I am really hoping for two things 1. That the Rebirth reboot places Arthur where he belongs.., the top echelon in the DC Universe and Justice League .. Where a KING is supposed to and be and 2. That this new movie next year really helps to elevate Aquaman to also. His power, strength and abilities have been downplayed and badly written for decades and it's time to show that Aquaman is the true King of the Seven Seas!

@vincent1967: The Jeff Parker fight with Aquaman vs Hercules, was pretty impressive to. Hercules flexing out of Aquaman's grip breaking a mountain behind him. Or Aquaman punching Hercules over an island.

The Hercules fight was good.. Especially considering Herc was insane so he wasn't holding back at all and Arthur still defeat him. Another impressive feat was him swimming and through a lava tube and standing motionless in it also after defeating the Dead King. The toughest of his skin needs to be augmented higher than 5.56 or 7.62mm.. He should be able to easily withstand Tank cannon fire or not be penetrated so easily with stabbing weapons. A body that can withstand pressures that submarines can't should be much more durable.

He did sink a submarine with only 1 punch in the very first comic issue that he appeared.

His first appearance did involve him having a super strength.

@stormhawk31 1. Superman can lift way more than 800,000 tons, though he did basically start crying while holding a black hole the size of a spec of dust, for contrast a black hole the size of a soda can weighs trillions of tons, on average Superman has been able to lift planets, 2. Aquaman is not as strong as Namor, Namor has shown to be able to overpower the Hulk while in water which far exceeds anything Aquaman has displayed, though I 100% agree Aquaman is underrated, I believe one time he beat Despero on his own and

Despero was able to take on the entire JL so pretty good, plus just look at him, gotta admit Aquaman does have some style
