What do you do if someone makes fun of aquaman.

#1 Posted by RoyHarperBLOW (1495 posts) - - Show Bio

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?

#2 Posted by Suprman (442 posts) - - Show Bio

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."

You do absolutely nothing. If they wanna be stupid let them.

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.

@RoyHarperBLOW: If someone is making fun of Aquaman, I would say they are FISHING for a responce.

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.

Ignorance is bliss. Leave them to it.

If is funny I laugh then inform them that he is actually a cool character

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.

Forcibly hold their head under water while asking if they still think his super powers are lame.

#28 Posted by nerd217 (80 posts) - - Show Bio

Laugh along too! Joking. He is actually a lot cooler than people make out though I prefer Namor.

#29 Posted by Black_Claw (2997 posts) - - Show Bio

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.

#36 Posted by Black_Claw (2997 posts) - - Show Bio

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.

#37 Posted by GunGunW (996 posts) - - Show Bio

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.

#41 Posted by frostphoenix (40 posts) - - Show Bio

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....
