Aquaman's powers have varied over the years; in all incarnations, he is mainly known for his ability to breathe underwater, swim at high speeds and communicate with sea life. As of TheNewTens [[MakingASplash Hydrokinesis]] is increasingly common as well. He also often has something to do with Franchise/TheDCU's version of {{Atlantis}}.

* AbortedArc: Geff Johns' run ended with setting up another crossover between ''Justice League'' and ''Aquaman'' about Nereus trying to unite the Seven Seas. The crossover never came during Johns' tenure as writer of ''Justice League''. Averted once ''ComicBook/DCRebirth'' was announced, wherein Johns has said it's one of his planned projects.

In the SilverAge, Aquaman's origins were revamped; now, he was a HalfHumanHybrid of [[{{Atlantis}} Atlantean]] and surface human, raised by his father, a lighthouse-keeper, and unaware of his royal heritage until recently. He was super-strong and tough because his body was "adapted to the sea's depths", and he could [[PsychicPowers telepathically]] control anything that lived on or near the sea. However, he was also given a KryptoniteFactor of sorts; he could only spend [[HourOfPower one hour]] out of the water before succumbing to potentially fatal weakness. Aquaman's career was, like Superman's, also retroactively extended back into his childhood as "Aquaboy," ComicBook/{{Superboy}}'s sole contemporary hero. (This idea of the son of a light-house keeper and a merwoman may be inspired by the old song [[http://www.contemplator.com/sea/edlight.html "My Father Was the Keeper of the Eddystone Light"]].)

** This is played straight with Kordax (Atlanteans refer to blond hair as the "Curse of Kordax") and Atlan (Aquaman's father, PostCrisis).

* GenreShift: The ''Sword Of Atlantis'' storyline was an attempt at this; dropping most of the superhero Tropes and instead framing the book as a sword-and-fantasy tale, with the new Aquaman facing mystical threats and themes.
