This is a composite respect thread for Arthur Curry commonly known as Aquaman, containing feats from the Pre-Flashpoint/Post-Flashpoint Era. Specifically Post-Crisis to the Post-Flashpoint. Detroit Era feats suggested to be in between Pre and Post Crisis. Some Pre-Crisis Feats might be included as well to round out Pre-Flashpoint as a whole, wheras the Trident is a amalgam of various continuities and representations of versions of Aquaman and his trident. Some feats might repeat themselves in different categories if they cover different areas. Feel free to use any scans in this thread to your pleasure as I hope this is of use.

Strength

Being Atlantean Royalty Aquaman tends to possess strength above that of a human or Atlantean. His strength has been shown to exceed the thousand ton range. Another reason Aquaman and Atlanteans are very strong and durable is because of their adaption to underwater living making them very strong on land.

Physical Power: Stronger on land.

Striking

On top of having massive physical strength the King of Atlantis tends to pack a punch, having harmed Metas, Machines and Gods with his physical might.

Durability

One of the King of Atlantis many attributes, is having nearly bulletproof skin, able to survive attacks capable of destroying cities casually and can free fall from Orbit and be fine. Note: Aquaman's skin is near bulletproof but his bones and muscle are completely bulletproof. "You want to know what makes Aquaman tough"

Healing

Aquaman has a pretty impressive healing factor whether on land or sea. He's been stabbed clean through and healed as well as been blasted a hole through and healed in the next panel. Talk about a Super Amphibian.

No Caption Provided

Speed

Fun Fact: Water is on avg. 832 times more dense then air, so when Aquaman's on dry land he can travel faster, and has been shown to react and perceive things at super speed both above and beneath the waves. Faster on land. Look at TOA as an instance where he tends to Super charge a couple times.

Senses

Not everyone has enough sense or some don't have it at all, but Aquaman doesn't seem to have that problem in his case he has super senses. The King of Atlantis is capable of hearing from miles away as well as seeing in near complete darkness.

AquaTelepathy

"I don't talk to Fish" Whether he talks to fish or not, Aquaman's most iconic ability seems to be his command over the denizens of the deep. Whether that include Dolphins, Sea Birds, or Zombie Sharks.

Telepathy

Did you know Aquaman was a legit telepath for a very long time? Well now you do. Aquaman's tp has been a pretty extreme ability in his comic history. Out of all the characters to have telepathy Aquaman is one of or maybe even the one to use it in a form that comes off as hax. Basal Ganglia anyone?

Composite Trident

Whether it be his own trident, your mom's trident or Poseidon's Trident. Aquaman has shown the ability to wield the trident very proficiently over various different time lines, on top of that he's had a couple tridents with pretty sweet abilities. No matter the trident the one thing that always remains definite is the fact it's Indestructible.

Superman 50 gave a nod to Aquaman. Vandal Savage has a simulation of what the future can be and included those whom Savage considers to be the strongest for his clan.

@ashrym: Yeah I saw that as well, it's a cool mention but I'm curious to what sense Vandal meant strongest, we already get a mention in Forever Evil that Aquaman is one of the strongest people on the planet, but I think Vandal meant it in the sense of strong being those who could stand over those Vandal considered weak.

Personally was hoping they didn't touch Aquaman again in a Superman title I didn't like the Braniac thing and the Pak issue with Aquaman telling Superman to take a fall was horrible in terms of characterization let alone fight.

I liked the Beer issue and the lunch scene in SM/WW though and this wasn't bad either, I'd like to see more team ups with Arthur and Clark there's stroies with the two I liked Pre-Flashpoint and they have alot in common that never seems to be brought up.

I'll add this here since I already pulled images a few today. These are from Aquaman 50 and Justice League of America 8 so don't read them if you don't want spoilers. I'm trying not to give out too much either way.

From JLA8

No Caption Provided

Impaling Rao with a trident. It's always nice to see Aquaman lay down some Kryptonian smack.

Also from JLA8

No Caption Provided

He also casually tosses Rao over to Wonder Woman as he checks on Superman. This reminded me a bit of Shazam's rescue in Justice. I also like the Wonder Woman reaction and kept it in the image. As a side note, Aquaman also used lighting from the trident later in the comic so I'll give that a small inclusion.

No Caption Provided

One more from JLA8

No Caption Provided

Aquaman was an active participant in forcing Rao through Cyborg's boom tube while Superman has broken ribs, ruptured liver, etc.

All in all, Aquaman had a couple of good badass moments in Justice League of America 8

The images from Aquaman 50 aren't quite as butt kicking, but they did add a couple of layers to his abilities.

Communing with water by focusing through his trident.

No Caption Provided

Detects nanoscopic traces in the water, and then also calls out to Deadwater, who later is shown to be extra dimensional.

No Caption Provided

These next images are more of a teaser. Deadwater did answer Aquaman's telepathic call. The fight started at this pool, which is from a penthouse on top of a skyscraper in Albany, NY, so it does show some decent fighting outside of water. The fight didn't stay there.

@ashrym:Appreciate it man. Is Aquaman still using the Trident Wonder Woman tossed to him or did he put it down, I really couldn't tell when reading it. Hoping he put it down and decided to stick with his original :P

I also wonder how big a drop that could of been not that he hasn't free fell from higher distances like Orbit and The Stratosphere but it's cool to think about also Arthur seems to have blurred a bit in the last image when falling the tridents end size can't be seen and his legs look longer then what they are sized to be.

The Water telepathy thing is really interesting.

Anyways great stuff thanks for adding them.

@ashrym: In Aquaman 50 he also shown some resistance to Otherness. Not sure if it was reality manipulation since it did transmute the other guy. So this might be his reality manipulation resistance feat, or at least transmutation resistance:

@chimeroid: I didn't really put much thought into that, nice man.

I wonder why it didnt change Aquaman his physiology, does he still have magic in veins maybe? Hoping this is expanded on on but I'd probably classify it as some sore of transmutation though it seems to warp the mind as well.

Well, Aquaman always had a strong mind. It is the fact that he was not transformed that surprised me. It is a nice feat. Probably low resistance

@chimeroid: @blackwind: With Arthur's description of it, it almost reminds me of the secret sea from the Volume 6 run with the water hand.

It wasn't really water by his definition or not directly water it was suggested to be "a new water" He described it as resonating with Thought which reminds me of the Secret Sea. Later which it actually was drowning Aquaman which you could probably say by that its not really water but he seemed to beat it or Resist it.

Here's why it reminds me of the Secret Sea though.

I'm wishing they made that reference like Aquaman saying "it's like some sort of Secret Sea that's twisted and dark in nature" something like that. If this wasn't where the idea came from I'd be a bit sad as I'm wanting to see "Sub-Diego" happen in some form again.

I also want to applaud Abnett for using a villain for at most 1 issue with a fight, and 2 if we include the introduction. Instead of giving us an entire arc with a new villain that were not really sure about yet like testing the waters so to speak. I'm curios about "The Otherness" and hope it's not something that's never brought up again in the mythos

@ashrym: That's a good one as well, I'm going to have to show have @TheVivas this stuff.

I want to add in the fact that if you see Aquaman devolving The Shark in his feats.

That The Shark is a Green Lantern rogue the reason he gives GL a hard time is he can Telepathically induce fear into ones brain. So resisting his TP and making him beg is a good feat.

Post-Crisis feat on the Shark though.

#28 Posted by EcstaticGrace (7143 posts) - - Show Bio

@chimeroid: Your probably right but I think it would be cool if there was some connection maybe "The Otherness" can spawn The Thirst and "The Secret Sea" is to "The Otherness" as Light is to Day. To be honest I'd be surprised if The Otherness is even brought up again 10 issues onwards. Some interesting stuff that's been introduced in previous runs have yet to be addressed. Like that Pit Hercules was put in would make a great torture prison for Aquaman rogues :P I'd also like to see Aquaman wield all of the Atlantean relics for an arc I think that could of been a cool direction instead of borrowed powered in the Thule arc not that the Poseidon stuff wasn't cool though.

But thank you I'm glad you like the thread, I plan on continously updating and feel free to post stuff I tend to miss things first read. Hoping this thread can give a good idea what a Composite Aquaman with and without a Composite Trident is capable of.

I updated and thought you guys might be interested in seeing the update. More trident feats are referenced among other things in some of the physical categories. I also included Respect as a category in order to give links to specific versions, other affiliated characters and etc. I'll probably be editing from now on every 5 issues or so or whenever I find the time mainly for the really big showings that come in though since this has a lot of continuities in general. Thanks for admiration of the thread and some support with showings.

The feat with Aquaman against the Eel, Aquaman revealed that his telepathy effects even the very smallest, most miniscule sea life, and used it to invade Eel's body was probably one of the most creative thing that I've ever seen him deal with his telepathy. It also means that if he's in the water with someone, he doesn't just need to fight with something big.

And for the first scan. In the aftermath of that battle Justice League was knocked out except for him (superman was not in that fight). But he and WW tanked the same blast. He withstood it.

@chimeroid: Trident vs Imperiex Probe. The first one I'm not sure though it looks like he dodged it and I don't know how fast the blast are either.

Avatar image for chimeroid
#40 Edited by Chimeroid (9241 posts) - - Show Bio

@ecstaticgrace: If he dodged it it could be equally impressive, imperiex probes have pretty good shooting feats. and, since the imperiex probe exploded when he pierced it with his trident and he survived it he still has a good durability showing.

Also, it is a strength showing since he blocked Probe's swing

#43 Edited by EcstaticGrace (7143 posts) - - Show Bio

@blackwind: Ironic thing is you have had powerhouses hurt by far less but it doesn't damage their cred, Wonder Woman has been fatally shot doesn't make her any less a powerhouse, Black Bolt has had arrows embedded in himself and Despero has been pierced clean through with a rod, so it's not like there arent characters who've had problems with the Piercing side of durability but have excellent durability to blunt force or other forms of durability like energy attacks.

Ironically Aquaman's faired better to Piercing attacks given high caliber fire can only go pass the skin and not any further. The Thing is completely bulletproof hell same with Black Panther but when it comes to blunt force I'm confident Aquaman and the other powerhouses can take more then the bulletproof characters mentioned in my post.

@farkam: @chimeroid: @blackwind: @ashrym: @metaljimmor: @kcomicfan: @vinomonster: From this weeks JL issue.

New52 Mammoth seems like a beast durability wise. The only time I can recall seeing him knocked out is when Superman, Wonder Woman and Magog triple punched him as well as when Tempest and Troia double punched him. So he's not really a one on one opponent it seems.

No Caption Provided

I'm not sure if I'll add this to the thread, since opinion wise the damage looks generic compared to lets say making Mammoth bleed or knocking him out. Though I will add Mammoth was going blow for blow with Superman who didnt do any better and Aquaman atleast Pushes him back with the backend of the trident like "Not today"

The feat that stood out the most in the title though was this if you pay attention to context. Might be downplayed but keep in mind that these were suggested fast and actually showed the ability to dodge Flash. Practically shows Timing > Faster oponent.

"They're fast, Don't look where they are..."

@chimeroid: Its actually a pretty good feat. Batman explains why he was able to tag them. It's kind of similar to aim dodging but on a higher note.

I wouldn't discount it because Batman did it regardless, Batman when amount the JL has some of the most high class feats.

@farkam: I didn't get an opinion either way. Comparable via physical strikes seem more accurate since at best both were only shown pushing Mammoth back. Mammoth even took a punch straight in the gut from Superman and didn't get pushed back just proceeded to slam Superman into a building.

Page 15, Aquaman rocks Mammoth back with his tridents' backend to the skull.

Page 16, Superman speedblitz punches Mammoth in the face rocking him

Page 17, Mammoth takes a punch straight in the abdomen from Superman and doesn't even flinch. Different body part but it atleast tells us he isn't easy to move.

Page 19, Aquaman punches Mammoth in the face rocking him.

Hell Aquamans' trident rocked Mammoth back as much as a speedblitz punch did.

Not that much of an outlier considering
