Best : Introduction in the New 52
Worst : The period between Superfriends and New 52
who agrees ?
Aquaman's best moments were the PAD years beginning with Atlantis chronicles and then continuing to Aquaman: Time and Tide and the PAD Aquaman series, his best and longest running by far. At the same time Aquaman was also a founding member of the Grant Morrison JLA, where he was written extremely well.
But the storyline that Geof Johns began in Blackest Night through Brightest Day and Flashpoint and finally to the New 52 is his best time period ever.
Aquaman became again one of the best characters in the DCU.
His worst period was the Super Friends era.
when he acts like a total badass
worst: when people think he is not a total badass and the lack of 4th wall breaking abilities impossibilitates Aquaman from teaching them better
but seriously, that moment in the JL animated series where he rips his hand off to save his son? dude, I'd like to see anyone else try being as badasss

I like Pre New 52 Aquaman more than New 52 version. Mostly because the Pre New 52 version wasn't always trying to prove how "badass" he was.
I get what you mean. I feel like Johns is the one trying to prove how badass he is (and doing a damn good job),while in-universe Arthur really doesn't have much to prove. He just is badass, and they haven't mentioned the in-universe/metaversal disrespect shown in the first issue. At least not recently.
@Decoy Elite: You'd be surprised how many people think Aquaman was trying to be hardcore like Namor in the 90s. As if all the traumatising sh*t he went through didn't warrant a man to have some problems afterwards.
