New-52/Rebirth Aquaman Respect Thread [Updated 2/12/19]

"I was born Arthur Curry of Amnesty Bay, Maine. When I was a teenager, I learned that wasn't entirely true. My father told me my mother was from a mythical city. I was told my mother was the Queen of Atlantis. And that one day I would be the King of Atlantis. That day is today. Today, I am Aquaman--the King of the Seven Seas. King of an underwater society that doesn't exactly trust a leader from the surface world. King of an army that would sooner annihilate those on land than befriend them. King of a culture and a people that are not my own. But what choice do I have? This is my birthright. This is my responsibility. And I will embrace it."

Quotes:

"For years I've tried to fight my birthright. But that's over. My name is Arthur Curry. I am the King of the Seven Seas. I am Aquaman." (Aquaman Issue #17)

"When I was growing up, I didn't feel like I fit in with the people around me. I was always out of place. I didn't understand them. But fear...confusion...the feeling that the world's spinning out of control and all you can do is dig in and hang on...that I get." (Aquaman Issue #41)

"I'm land and sea. I stand guard on the line between the two and watch over both. I protect one from the other. I'm Aquaman."

Bio

(Aquaman Issue #00) Here's a short bio on Aquaman:

Atlantean Trident

No Caption Provided

(Aquaman Issue #00) Aquaman's Atlantean trident is stated to be indestructible. Also shows that Arthur knows where the armory is with the strongest Atlantean artifacts:

Poseidon's Trident

(Aquaman Issue #41) Aquaman's new trident, which can be used as both a short sword and a trident, was granted to him by the god of the sea Poseidon. Along with the new trident, Aquaman was also granted powers to control the wind, rain, lightning, and other elements. When it's in its sword form, Aquaman need only will it to become a trident and it stretches out to become the trident:

Magic Defense

With the blessing he received from Poseidon, Aquaman was granted a degree of defense against magic, most prominently the magic of Thule users. Here, he uses his magic trident to block a large magical blast from three Thule sorcerers:

Elemental Powers

(Aquaman Issue #41) With his new trident, Aquaman can now use elemental powers, seen here using the trident to freeze a room full of thugs in an instant by striking the ground with his weapon:

(Aquaman Issue #44) When Aquaman was attacked by Siren, Mera's sister, he was pinned against a wall by her water manipulation powers. He freed himself though by sticking his trident in sword form into the water, freezing it, as well as igniting and changing it to trident form:

Teleportation

(Aquaman Issue #41) On top of the addition of elemental powers, Aquaman can use his trident to teleport around the world. Here he used it to teleport from Missouri in the United States to the Amazon in South America before Atlantean ships could fire at him:

(Aquaman Issue #44) Aquaman can also teleport to other worlds, doing so here after losing his concentration after only a moment after his short fight with Siren:

Skill

This is going to be an extremely short section because I've only come across two clear-cut showing of skill for Aquaman.

(Aquaman and the Others Issue #10/#11) Aquaman easily disarms Chesire of her two swords and once he admits to not holding back anymore, stomps her in three moves flat. Cheshire is regarded as the most dangerous woman alive by both the Operative (a special agent who's in his sixties and still active) and the narrator, yet Aquaman was holding back so that he wouldn't unintentionally hurt someone "vastly inferior to him":

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3Gallery image 4

(Aquaman Issue #42) Aquaman fights a team of Atlantis's best highly trained warriors and prevents them from capturing him even though he was outnumbered five to one. The team consisted of King Shark, an eating machine turned barbarian; Scylla, an undersea terrorist; Charbydiss, a more dangerous eating machine than King Shark; Ch'Tok, an assassin from the Trench; and another member that Arthur actually didn't know but could tell was dangerous based on his participation in the hit squad:

Strength

(Aquaman Issue #14) Black Manta describes Aquaman as having ten times the muscle density of normal humans and nearly bulletproof skin:

(Aquaman Issue #00) Aquaman stops a speeding boat from crashing into rocks:

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2

(Aquaman Issue #01) Aquaman easily stabs and flips over a speeding van:

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2

(Aquaman Issue #04) With help from Mera, Aquaman pushes a large portion of an ancient Atlantean ship that was holding entrapped humans that were being used as food for the Trenchers. It's an impressive feat because they pushed the section of ship all the way from the bottom of the ocean from where there's no sunlight (anywhere from 1,000 meters or 3,280 feet down or more), as well as pushed it against the pressures of of the deep all the way to the surface. Aquaman is attacked by the Trenchers and left the pushing of the ship to Mera for a bit, but he rejoined her as soon as he closed up the Trench:

No Caption Provided

(Aquaman Issue #04) Aquaman pushes a large section of rock on top of the trench that was housing the Trenchers:

No Caption Provided

(Aquaman Issue #25) Aquaman stops the Dead King from stabbing his scepter into Atlantis in order to use it's power to sink it again. This is coming at most a day after Arthur woke up from being in a coma for six months and only a few moments after he was stabbed in the stomach by his own trident. And since there seems to be many users who think this is a durability feat, claiming Aquaman took the full continent sinking force, the third scan proves that wrong. We can see the energy from the scepter lacing out and striking the nearby buildings, meaning it wasn't all focused into Arthur and he didn't tank a continent busting attack:

They're second form wasn't given a name but they take on the characteristics of an aquatic animal, like an orca, an octupus, a barracuda, and a great white. The Aqua-Marines in their normal human form are already capable of catching a bullet fired from less than ten feet away, yet Arthur was able to fight three of them and defeat their leader:

(Justice League Rebirth Issue #) Aquaman swimming the four corners of the world. He started this about the same time the encounter with the Kindred took off the east coast of Canada and was there to help complete that battle. He also started after Superman was boomtubed into the earth and finished before Superman finished his task. The size of the four corners of the world are given context earlier in the story and included. Aquaman is fast enough for global travel to multiple locations over the course of a single battle. It's questionable how long the battle is but impressive nonetheless. Feat credit to @ashrym:
