Listen, if you watched the solo Aquaman movie or Justice League, it will come as no surprise to you that Aquaman is a jerk. That is his whole persona, the likeable jerk who talks to fish. That Theorists, is not what this episode is about. We are not here to critique his attitude. We are here to give you the evidence you need to convince you the Aquaman is NO ONE'S hero! In fact, this guy is damaging the one thing he's supposed to hold dear and protect - the ocean! Strap on your SCUBA gear and get ready to dive in!

    I liked aqua man but two things. 1 the cliches were a bit overdone. They can work, but no like that. 2 his suit. I really dislike how it looks. If they were going to have it then couldn't they have made it look like some mail armor. It needs a rework in my opinion.

    Pretty sure the Justice League would save all the humans from the tsunami lol. And maybe Aquaman didn't know he would cause a tsunami by doing that. I sure didn't think about that. The American scho system sucks

    1:52 thats an atlantian wepon, the previous one was a regular sword It's a war, with the fate of the entire earth hanging in the balance, when the union decimated the ranks of the confederates at gettysburg, did there general belive that the conscripted congederate masses where sub human, no they where the enemy, in war, you do what is nessicary to defeat your enemy, while yes the karethin was very tough, if the atlantians got wise enough to fire on arthur instead, he cant take that much punishmen, and the jerathin would run. Your point about the brine was true though, and your point about the Kerathins apperance, does prove aquamans irresponseability.
