We've all asked who is the fastest runner, Flash or Superman, well then who do you guys think is the fastest swimmer, Aquaman or Superman?
Superman vs. Aquaman
Pre DCnU Aquaman in an issue of Justice League (first series) were together underwater and Superman was helping Aquaman. Aquaman theorised he was faster than Superman underwater, but didn't want to make Superman feel bad. And he had other feats like 20000 feet in a second, etc
He also has tagged and kept up with Flash (and Superman) while he was running (flying for Supes) many times, without any trouble.
New DCU Aquaman has already gone much faster than Hypersonic speed, which is any speed > Mach 5, but we don't know his limits. Still a good indication of his speed.
I don't know who is faster, but is Superman really swimming? Isn't he just flying, without moving a muscle?
Just how fast can Aquaman swim? Because of Superman's sheer strength alone, the density of the water shouldn't be a factor on his end, so I'd imagine that swimming to him is like flying in space or something.
Well water would have more resistance than air or space, not to mention the planets gravity. It would be easier to fly in space without gravity in general. The actual effects on Superman might be negligible though...
Aquaman's the faster swimmer,his body is built for that,but is superman was flying underwater(u get what i mean right) with his hands streched out infront of him fingers pointed out cutting through the water,he wld probably be faster.
Makes sense in theory.

Superman can fly to the sun and back faster than the speed of light. Can Aquaman swim faster than the speed of light?
This. The problem with Supes not clocking in faster than speed of light during the majority of his time on earth is because of his fear of tearing through the structure of our atmosphere.
Superman one shots the mermaid. Heres why, Superman at his peak can destroy planets with single punches and lift planetary weight, while Aquaman can only lift 10000 tons, if he is in water. Not to mention Superman is far far far far far far far faster. Superman and Aquaman in speed comparison is like comparing a rocket to a snail.
one would think supes but if you add that no flight propulsion that he actually has to swim using his own muscles can he out do aquaman , then again its not like supes breathes and if he gets frustrated and is flailing around would he cause a tsunami or a maelstrom or something?
