Arthur Curry was born to a human father and a princess of Atlantis. Both his parents died when he was young, leaving him to find out about his true heritage when in his teens. Gradually needing contact with water more often, Curry now has to be submerged once an hour or he will weaken and die. Taking the name Aquaman, he fights crime with the help of his finny friends. Aquaman has telepathic abilities with the creatures of the sea and is aided by his young Atlantean friends Aqualad and Aquagirl.
Aquaman comes with a Trident that signifies his royal oceanic lineage and does a nifty little swimming kick when his arms are squeezed together.
From the fins on his boots to the scales on his tunic, Aquaman is the spitting image of his comic book counterpart. No hook-handed, long-haired, scraggly-bearded loner of the seas here.
