* Where did Black Manta's manta men come from if he's just a human mercenary in a swimsuit? I've seen those manta creatures on the 1960s Aquaman cartoon. I'm not sure if they appeared in the comics.

** He's good at getting people to work for him, though they're more hired mercenaries rather than just thugs. Back in the day, he even lied and manipulated black men, under the illusion that Black Manta would create a homeland for blacks to live in safety and peace. And he's a very successful submarine pirate, so he can probably afford to pay them.

** Pn ''Series/{{Smallville}}'' they implied that he chose the colors because, at least in that incarnation of the character, he was attending college at the University of Miami, where the school colors are orange and green.

** Here's a headscratcher...why poke fun of a guy who can easily snap our bodies like a twig? That's like picking on a 6 foot tall, 300 pound wrestler who can crush you with his bare hands. Think about it, a human saying a super human is useless, and a joke. Does anyone see the problem with this? Aquaman could clobber us easily.
*** In universe? People probably don't realise that. In real life? Um...I guess because he's fictional?

** Out of Universe The StreisandEffect has also contributed in that the more people complain about Aquaman not being taken seriously the less seriously a lot of people are determined to take him. Badass Aquaman has essentially become a ForcedMeme that is being rebelled against.

** Also, on {{Smallville}} they implied that he chose the colors because, at least in that incarnation of the character, he was attending college at the University of Miami, where the school colors are orange and green.
** Also, during the 2011 he describes his skirt as ''chain mail''. So, it can be easily some sort of utilitarian Atlantean chain mail armor, used in prisons or for infantry troops that Aquaman used for added protection.
