I see people say he's useless or lame or all he can do is talk to fish all over the internet especially youtube.

I give them a link to show his abilities and powers and tell them is that lame?

Basically if your an aquaman fan and someone says BS about him what do you do?

I tend to just ignore them. I also always ask the same thing, "Have you ever read his book?" and they say "I don't have to." Then I just walk away.

Who still does that? I hear people make fun of Aquaman about as often as I hear people say "for me to poop on" or "all your bases belong to us."

Usually ask why they think he sucks. I normally get the "Cuz all he can do is talk to fish and breath underwater, that's lame" Hearing that, it's obvious they never read a comic of his.

And if they're aware of what he can do, but still says he is lame for shallow reasons, they're usually the sort who are only impressed by things Batman or Superman do.

All in all, let'em be ignorant.

I dealt with enough fan sh!t to just ignore it. If I let every jack a$$ comment towards one of my favorite characters get to me I would have left ages ago.

I used that exact image in defending Aquaman today. I normally just casually mention some of his exploits or abilities. Surprisingly, so far, everyone has responded with a basic "Oh, wow, I did not know that" rather than get defensive.

I respect people may have a favorite character that a majority may think is lame but just roll with it. There's a reason the lame status is there & the more you fight it the more hilarious you look to them.

When you have a Green Lantern, Superman, Batman & then you have a guy who seemingly just talks to fish, just understand where the joke is coming from and roll with it. It is just a comic book character after all.

I tell people that if Aquaman can summon sea creatures then he could have a pretty good chance of summoning Cthulhu. All my friends who bash Aquaman shut up when I tell them that.

I used to be like that, thought Aquaman was a wuss. Then i started to read his comics with the new 52. Now i say to people, i thought like that, but then i read his comic and in my opinion, hes bad-ass

I look at their reasons why. If they're just parroting family guy, I ignore them, not because I think they're not worth talking to, but because I've found these people are rarely looking for a serious (and seriously nerdy) debate about a comic book character. If they seem to know the character and not like him for actual perceived flaws, I'll happily discuss it with them.

Sometimes on top of reminding my friends that Cthulu lives in the ocean, I remind them that Godzilla lives in the ocean as well and Aquaman could easily call them up to kick some ass.

Who started the whole trend of making fun of him in the first place? I feel like Family Guy is the first time I ever heard someone start making fun of him.

XD.

But seriously, I really haven't heard actual comic readers or anyone on the internet bash Aquaman. Like ever.

In fact, the only time I've ever heard any Aquaman bashing is in The Big Bang Theory.

I always try to stay calm. Most of the time people that make fun of Aquaman don't read comics or they don't really care about the character, they only know the character from what people say of him or what they watch on TV. For example in family guy and other comedy based programs Aquaman is used as a joke and that is why they think this hero is lame.

I let it slide. I tried to explain to my little brother that Aquaman's awesome but he always says "He talks to fish". Talking to these people is like talking to a brick wall, they just can't accept the change of something that they thought was lame becoming cool. Peeves me off every time though....
