What if Aquaman could fly?

Bypassing the obvious comparisson with Namor... 
 
What if Mr. Johns decided to do something (actually) interesting with the King of the Seas and give him the power of flight?
 
 
Would it be cool? Would it be wierd? How would your opinion about him change?

how would making him fly be interesting...there are like a billion comic characters who can fly...what would make a flying Aquaman interesting?

Yeah, I see nothing interesting about giving Aquaman the power of flight.

But he's from the sea... he should have water-based powers, flying is the opposite of that, which is why I think that Namor having the ability to fly is both stupid (for lack of a better or more appropriate word) and redundant.

  So he'll be a flying fish- man?  Congratulations, more stuff for Family Guy to make fun of.

I think that it'd be interesting, but not really necessary. 
Aquaman is such a misunderstood character, having him be able to fly might at least give him more visibility and "wow" factor, but I like what they're currently doing with him on Brightest Day.

Then he'd be like Namor?

Nah.. he doesn't need to fly. They just need to capitalize in the powers he already has, which are very vast. The only thing that would make sense is him having Hydrokinesis or increasing his telepathy, although he can already take out almost anyone with it. He should also use Poseidon's Trident more.

He doesn't need to fly. That's for Namor. What he needs is writers who will help make him a more respected character in the comic book community.
