Yes, he looks much more badass. Thor should get his beard back also.

The beard is a part of his character, but I have to say no. He is too young. Let the beard for when the heroes will start aging, if they ever...

Superman would look rediculous with a stuble...He would be "5 o clock in the morning" Superman or "No mirror to shave" Superman :P

@hyperman: Only a little. When pre reboot Aquaman got rid of the beard and longer hair, he looked 30 again.

If any of the big names at DC should have a beard, it's Aquaman imo. Just works.

Older Aquaman yes

Young Aquaman maybe depends on what is going one.

No. Not very formal for someone that's supposed to be a king.

Definitely like the beard I think approaching 30 which I'd assume his age is approaching if he isn't already in 30's is a fine age to have a beard.

I thought his beard during Death of a King looked Majestic and just simply fit. Looked like a reference to Brave and The Bold which I prefer opposed to the Barbarian long hair 90's look. His beard during his water bearer days looked abit ideal as well.

Like someone said if you had to look at any mainstream heroes who should have one he definitely would be a pick.

Why do people think that only old people should have beards?

True. My point is though, Kings and beards go hand in hand. Middle ages?

Aquaman is one of the few characters I like better clean shaven /shrug.

Its a hypocrisy thing with me. Cos I personally rock a beard always :)

Absolutly not. I liked the look of Aquaman in the New 52 especially in the first 12 issues. Clean cut pretty boy.

Yes, I particularly am not a fan of beardless Aquaman. I think that the beard defines him in a way.

He should have a beard in his tougher runs and be clean shaven while we are following his reign with Mera by his side.

Beard and long hair, it makes him look more like a King.
