...ained a bad rap throughout the years. Throughout the 80s he 'hero' status was without a doubt diminished and downplayed. People tend to forget that he is a king and all of the ocean's life bend to his will... he is often forgotten because his kingdom is under water, but he has always fought for land walkers and sea dwellers. Even though his origin has been changed throughout the years, he still remains part of the Justice League. He has a combination of abilities found in very very few other superheroes, superior hearing, smell and vision, amphibious breathing, not to mention his super-strength. He has advanced stamina and physiology. He has telepathic communication abilities with sea life. His Atlantean genetics his atlanta engine minutes also get him enhanced reflexes and speed. I really hope they don't give him that damaged harpoon hand. If they insist on that I hope they go with the hand that he can manipulate. Lastly, I am extremely happy that he is getting a piece of the cinematic pie... and I look forward to seeing the level of creative expression the writers are given with my favorite superhero of all times.
