With all of the 'New 52' talk, it's easy to overlook how long some of the DC Comics characters have been around. Last week Supergirl celebrated her birthday and Sunday, September 24, Aquaman is celebrating his 70th birthday.

It was AquamanShrine.com that brought this to our attention. On September 25, 1941, More Fun Comics #73 went on sale and introduced the world to Aquaman (actually it was also the first appearance of Green Arrow as well).

To honor Aquaman's big day, the Aquaman Shrine will be throwing a 'party' to mark the special day with Dan Abnett, Tony Bedard, Kurt Busiek, Nick Cardy, J.M. DeMatteis, Ramona Fradon, Patrick Gleason, Dan Jurgens, Paul Levitz and Joe Prado sharing their unique perspectives with fans, friends and family of Arthur Curry.

The Aquaman Shrine will also follow up the big 70th birthday party with exclusive content from Aquaman artist Ivan Reis everyday leading up to the release of Aquaman #1 (written by Geoff Johns) on September 28.

So what do you get the master of the oceans for his birthday?

Road trip?

Aquaman doesn't need anything for his birthday - he's technically king of the planet.

Apparently you ignore it completely. Is that 3 of DC's characters who have birthdays this year that they're just ignoring for the reboot? Yeah... not cool.

A prosthetic hand because God knows, he'll probably need yet another one someday.

I was actually thinking the exact same thing when I saw the article title lol.

Umm... how about some superpowers that don't suck or don't mimic a much better aquatic hero (once a great villain)

OR a super strength cyanide pill (tell him it's aspirin) and then we can start all over with a better character who doesn't require a bazillion rewrites and much back pedaling to make him seem cool?

My gift is me buying his comic and showing my support! lol :)

Cannot wait for AQUAMAN #1 next week, like Geoff Johns said, "Aquaman is awesome. Deal with it."

A few costume tips from Namor would be a perfect gift for Aquaman.

Doesn't that make it Green Arrow's 70th birthday as well?

While aren't' we talking about him?

#27 Edited by BatUniverse (111 posts) - - Show Bio

I will give him a weird oceanic plant species, wich power could make him control all the oceanic plants in the Sea!

Also with a cost of $50, if he wants....

you could give him back his son, but that might be a cop-out, so I'd say bring back Tempest

#39 Posted by Larkin1388 (1760 posts) - - Show Bio

I'd get him a Decorative Castle that he can swim through and hide in.

#40 Posted by MatKrenz (1230 posts) - - Show Bio

Question, where is Peter David ? You know the guy who wrote him getting his hand cut off in the 90's and thats the version people know from the Justice League cartoon. 
 
But happy birthday Aquaman and as a present I would force DC to put PAD's run in trade. As well as his Supergirl and Young Justice, and not the 100 page special things, actual trade.

Nothing is more fashionable than a perfect body and the confidence to show it off -- and Namor has both. :p

But if you are speaking of surface fashions, than you two clearly have not read any of the Namor's golden age stories or the John Bryne 90s stories. Namor dresses to the nines and very fashionably, when he feels so inclined.
