Fighting Speed & Fighting skills

Aquaman is faster and casually defeats 2 Talons, superhuman assassins (that posses superhuman speed, strength and a healing factor) while casually having a funny conversation with GL

Leaping & Fighting

Aquaman take's down a Parademon during Apocolypse's first invasion.

Leaping, Fighting & Trident's power

Aquaman leaps and stabs Darkseid. He was the ONLY Leaguer to draw blood from Darkseid.

where are these scans from?

@comicfan11: but in the comic wonder woman was able to stab him in one of the eyes,aquaman took out the other one

@cameron83: Aquaman was the only Leaguer to draw blood from Darkseid's body (chest). Both AQ and WW took out his eyes, but only AQ had an effect on Darkseid's "armor"

Super Strength : Aquaman punches through a collapsed island (You can see the size of the wall on the first scan)  
 

Super Speed / Leaping : Aquaman leaps from the ocean and takes the artifact right from Manta's hands, before Manta and the Atlanteans can react.
 

Telepathy : Aquaman uses telepathy on some marine life and sends it to Atlantis. Long distance and duration effects.

Aquaman is the only thing about new 52 that I respect. The.....only......thing!

#165 Edited by comicfan11 (740 posts) - - Show Bio

 
Super Strength / Durability : Aquaman smashes through a boat and takes out Scarecrow's henchmen. Minor but nicely illustrated feat.   


Super Speed & Leaping : Aquaman streaks through Gotham to save Gordon and Bullock & then leaps to a close building carrying them
 

Superh Speed, Leaping & Reflexes : Aquaman (on the background of the first panel, the distance is evident) manages to jump and catch a falling Mera and land on a rooftop again.
 

Bad@ssery & Fighting Speed  (?) / Skill  (?) : The Justice League don't trust Aquaman enough (they act like jerks) and so Aquaman decides to solve the Atlantean matter his way. That means going up against the JL. We see him casually grab Batman by the throat (before any member of the JL can react) as the battle is ready to begin. If you wondered why Batman's voice sounds like he is choking all the time (think Nolan's Batman), you have your answer here courtesy of the King of the Seas.

Great scans. I feel this story will show that Atlantis could crush the surface anytime they wanted to.

I'm feeling Mera's new outfit. The sleeves needd to go. Also, I notice she is bleeding once she overexerts herself, just like in Brightest Day. Glad Johns remembered that.

Man, Aquaman is a boss!

I'm also loving the sick trident action, however I do have one question that's been bugging me; how exactly does his trident stay on his back? It always seems to be resting across his back but there doesn't appear to be any strap or holster. I mean, surely somebody at DC has thought this through. Well if anybody knows, please clue me in.

The trident obviously just knows better.

Pretty good Super Strength (punching Superman, tackling and holding Diana) and Durability (tanking the Bat-fire, tanking a punch from Wonder Woman and then crashing through a ship) but I'm more impressed with the showing of Super Speed (when he tackles Wonder Woman).
 
Aquaman's speed out of water is clearly established as superhuman.
Great feats all around

Didn't he survive Orm's lightning as well?

@BlackWind: Yeah you are right. But it knocked him out along with Wonder Woman and Superman. Still it was a powerful attack.

@matchesmalone21: Nice! Again AQ is a beast physically.

I especially like these 2 that show his agility, superstrength and superspeed (when he tackles WW through the port and later Orm through the bus) and this one

where the ground is broken and the other Atlanteans are tossed aside by the force of the strike, nice superleaping and superstrength

@comicfan11:I loved this issue,because show why Aquaman has to be a JL member and one of he most important characters..not mention that finally I saw Batman fight!!!! Aquaman 17is awesome too,I saw one of his most impressive feat.

a telepathic feat

#178 Edited by comicfan11 (740 posts) - - Show Bio

@matchesmalone21: Agreed! This is quite possibly the most high profile storyline Aquaman ever had as the main character. And I also liked that everyone got their moments in this issue. I really like the panel where Bats traps a Trench with his cape and burns some others. Finally JL is what it should be with Reis on the team.

And yeah the feat in AQ 17 is his best telepathy feat so far. Almost capsizing the ship by jumping is also really impressive.

#179 Posted by matchesmalone21 (8425 posts) - - Show Bio

@comicfan11: Let's see what the future holds for JL and Aquaman,with the next issues..another thing that I love is how Batman and Aquaman see each other, their interaction,because in the previous Universe this was nearly absent.

#180 Posted by comicfan11 (740 posts) - - Show Bio

@matchesmalone21: There are some instances even preboot where AQ and Bats have their moments. Like Gotham Knight 18 and Aquaman (by Pfeifer) 21-22. But yeah I really like their interactions.

#181 Posted by matchesmalone21 (8425 posts) - - Show Bio

@comicfan11: I remember those comics and are great. I don't know,but heir interaction seems more intensive than before and in certain ways they are relatable to each other

F*ck yeah! This is what I needed. Being the King of Atlantis and King of the Seven Seas are not the same. But those panels sre what make Aquaman the latter, busting heads of people who f*ck around on his goddamn ocean.

Also, is Arthur not speaking English?

I respect him! Saving the man, who once tried to betray him!!

Arthur learning of his telepathic skills at a remarkably young age
Aquaman's blunt force and power, as well as his tough durability tanking multiple high-caliber bullets
Again, expressing great durability, being able to withstand the pressure of 10+ tons of weight crushing on him
Aquaman depicting great superhuman strength lifting a huge pillar (10+ tons) and eating up couple close-range gunfire
Aquaman and Mera lifting up a rock wall, evidently weighing over 1o0 tons easy.
