"As new as I am to learning about superheroes, everything that is well known to everyone else — like the fact that Aquaman is regarded as kind of lame — is new and hilarious.

This crazy dude living under the water. Anyway that is the only version of Aquaman that I am really into."
CHORUS: Fish, fish, fish! Fish are really boring! Complain about the weather and they never fall asleep. Fish, fish, fish! Donít have any feelings. They can't turn their heads, won't make eye contact with me, with me. Captain America
is a super soldier, Thor
is a magic Norse god, Wolverine
heals faster than he's injured. I can talk to some fish. Yeah, I'll go have a chat with some fish.
