What animated appearence is closest to Aquamans portrayal.
Best animated portrayal
@tikhunt: Flashpoint Paradox was spot on presenting Emperor Aquaman, but that's not a regular version of the character. And they also changed the end and made him job to Superman, while in the comics his last act is tackling Superman (without having lost an arm of course).
JL Animated Aquaman was spot on portraying the 90's PAD Aquaman and for my money that's the most faithful adaptation (again concerning the more rugged Aquaman at that moment).
And his small role in JLA Crisis on Two Earths was the one that had the most in common with the current version, although in no way was he as detailed as the current comics Aquaman.
So I'd have to go with the JL Animated version for the time being, but I'm sure when he gets his solo animated film after JL War, that will be the best version.
@justthatkid: But B&B was supposed to be a more comedic show, like the original live action Batman series from the 60s.
Everyone even Batman was portrayed in the same way (Batman had a "my car is better than your" rivalry with Green Arrow and it was hilarious).
In this setting I loved B&B, one of the best superhero cartoons ever IMO, but you have to look at it as a comedy with a lot of action, or action with a lot of comedy. Comedy was central to the show.
Characterization wise, I would say JL animated version. However, no show has shown how strong he really is.
I was astounded when I first saw the JL episode where he is badly wounded by a missile. I mean, I know he isn't like Superman where he can tank a nuke, but at most he should be just bleeding. Aquaman looked liked he was gonna be in a coma lol.
Flashpoint is the only one that's good. DC has treated Aquaman's animated appearances poorly in general afaic
His minor appearance in Crisis of two earths was good to in my opinion though Flashpoint treated him more of a power house and I loved it. I could agree with Comicfan on the getting his arm heat visioned off was bull though. I heard he was in "New Frontier" never got the chance to watch that movie.
@tikhunt: It was nice I guess but I'm still against the jolly holiday spirit acting depiction. I did enjoy the inclusion of his son who is never really shown though. ... This Aquaman sings :/
What did I just watch....this makes me glad I've never seen B:TBATB
xD, Somewhat was however enjoyable to me. Despite the silliness of it, I considered it more entertaining the TT GO!.... :/
I didn't know Aquaman actually had a fan base
And why not exactly? He's one of the most iconic characters in DC and one of the oldest.
And to anyone who's actual read an Aquaman comic he's awesome.
The only people who think otherwise are idiots who think Family Guy and BBT have any merit in their "portrayals"
@modernww2fare: The Superman TAS was a good one to I think they were trying to make the JL like the one in the comics at the time that's why Kyle was shown in Superman TAS and they were possibly thinking of showing Aquaman later on removing his hand in the JL episode "Enemy Below" was it called?.
