Everybody:WOW, AN AQUAMAN THAT I CAN ACTUALLY CARE ABOUT!! HE'S FINALLY HARDCORE AND NOT USELESS!! WHAT A DREAM BOAT!! OHH!! AAHH!! HE'S SO NOT LAME AND SO IS A BEEF CAKE!! Xoxox
Me:wtf are you talking about? Aquaman has always been hardcore. He's one of the most powerful Justice League members. He's a king with his own army/navy (not even Wonder Woman has access to that, unless she smooths things over with Themyscira first, or in dire circumstances). He's ruler of 70% of the world and has had nuclear technology for centuries. He is essentially bullet-proof because Atlantean skin has to be super dense in order to deal with the crushing depths of the sea. HIS FUCKING WIFE IS BEAST MODE AF. There was the time he asked Superman to throw him into the atmosphere so that Aquaman could fall down, trident first, like an ICBM into the skull of a giant monster that was attacking a city AND HE JUST SHRUGGED IT OFF LIKE IT WAS NOTHING. Plus there was the time HE CUT OFF HIS OWN HAND TO SAVE THE WORLD. Did he get it replaced using Atlantean technology? Sure, he could have, but he wanted a harpoon hook instead, because why not? Oh, wait, I know why... BECAUSE HE HAS ALWAYS BEEN HARDCORE. Like Batman, he tends to be a lone wolf, because unless it is going to kill the oceans, HE LITERALLY DOESN'T CARE. He'll even fight the entire Justice League if he feels that it is best for the oceans. He has done this several times. LITERALLY the ONLY thing that keeps Aquaman from taking over the surface world is the fact that he PROMISED the Justice League he wouldn't do it. He's been known to be fickle. So, yeah, Idk what all y'all are going on about, Aquaman has always been the hardest of cores.
