Aquaman throughout the DC Animated Multiverses.

I don't think anything like this was created so I thought it would be cool for something to reference Aquaman's best feats in animated worlds.

@ecstaticgrace: Impressive.. this would help a lot in battle forums. You should also add YJ Aquaman although he has fewer feats in there.

Nice job. Aquaman also avoided lasers in Superman TAS and knocked a small submarine down underwater.

@vinomonster:Glad you like it, yeah I'm trying to find the YJ episode where he helped land the plane as well as dodging the Manta men firing. Earth-16 is the YJ Universe by the way.

@zaied: Glad you like it, I'll try and find that thanks for the mention.

@ecstaticgrace: That's great.

You can also check the DC comics from the TV series, they have many great feats.

From the companion JLU comic, which is canon to that universe.

Is this the Justice League Unlimited comic?

@ecstaticgrace: No prooblem man, it's the one before that called Justice League Adventures.

Here's all the comic books with an animated or video game version of Aquaman for your respect thread.

In the DC Animated universe books you can see Aquaman both at the time of the Justice League Cartoon (the first 3 links under Justice League Animated) and also as an older king of Atlantis in the Beyond books (the last 4 links under Justice League Animated), which are set in the future of the Batman Beyond Cartoon, and his daughter Mareena is a member of the future Justice League)

You can find many great feats in these books (for example in the DC Super friends book he outswimms a Daxamite).

@comicfan11: Thanks for all this, I'm a bit in question to include some of the game feats, though there are some impressive ones like taking on the League and his short brawl against Flash and Shazam. Clash quotes in Injustice are quite interesting as well.

I'll look into the animated comics though.

@ecstaticgrace: Cheers.

In Injustice Comics his two main appearances are in year one vs Wonder Woman and the Justice League and in year four vs The Olympian Gods.

@comicfan11: My Flash and Shazam mention was in reference to the story mode story scenes.

I've read the comics though to my favorite line in all of it "Your entire world is inside mine" pretty intimidating phrase a bit sad it couldn't go the short way I wanted :P

The "I can Match your strength" and "Almost" makes me think the writers knew who they were writing.

Don't forget the old Aquaman animated series from the late 60s. It was part of the Superman/Aquaman Power Hour of Adventure!

You can probably find most of the episodes on youtube these days.

I can't be the only one who remembers this.

@ecstaticgrace:

You should give the show a watch. It was my first exposure to Aquaman and comes from an era where Aquaman was actually popular enough to be DC's second best selling character next to Superman. They chose Aquaman to be the second half of the Superman/Aquaman Power Hour of Adventure because he was doing so well at the time.

It's been ages since I watched it but I distinctly remember Fisherman needing specially designed metal fishing wire to contain Aquaman, and Aquaman summons some hilariously strong sea beasts, including a giant lobster strong enough to crush submarines!

He's also a super scientist and was able to invent a raygun that can make plankton super sized.

Unfortunately Aquaman's popularity fell through the floor once the Superfriends came out shortly after this series ended. They wanted to include Aquaman because of his popularity but obviously had no idea what to do with his character.

So yah. This cartoon is kind of Aquaman's peak of fame right before he got character assassinated in Superfriends and became the butt of every joke.
