    Oh, come on.

    For old time's sake. There will be plenty of "fhtagn" and ritual sacrifice. I swear.

    The last time this came around, Aquaman's showings were deemed sufficient to allow him to use Telepathic Assaults on humans.

    So that issue is the dead horse here.

    Secondly, if one comes onto a debate board and gives an opinion, one shouldn't be surprised if said opinion garners disagreement and even discussion. If one absolutely doesn't want that kind of thing, then this is wrong place to be posting.

    If Aquaman can take hits from beings on his strength level then I wouldn't have a problem with him being more or less bullet proof, but it still could of been SmvsFL I guess. But damn though..even season 1 Smallville Clark doesn't flat out draw blood from getting shot. Worst case scenario he took bruises. Could Aquaman, for instance, shrug off a car bomb or am I overestimating his durability?
    The feat you're quoting is from the Ultramine Corps story arc from JLA. Aquaman takes some sustained fire from a helicopter mounted gatling gun, as I recall, and shrugs it off no problem.

    He's got good crushing depth tolerances - guy went to the bottom of the Mariana Trench and survived. The pressure down there is around a hundred tons of weight on every square foot of his body. Aquaman is hellah strong and durable.

    Actually, that "crushing depth" thing is mostly hooey. It's only crushing if you have a lung full of surface air or something else compressible. But if you are just full of liquid (non-compressible) and breathing through gills like a fish, there's not really much of a problem - you are just part of the column of water in that case.

    I knew I'd seen it somewhere. That arc isn't a non-canon story or anything is it?

    Just want to point out that Aquaman can actually summon stuff out of a giant monster movie. I wasn't joking before.

    No, it's not. It was just a regular story arc. One of the earlier Morrision era JLA.

    It's canon. Well, it was for the Post Crisis. Obviously, it's no longer canon what with the new reboot and all.

    I'm aware that it's some not like that, but they had a whole issue about Aquaman going to these enormous depths and having to physically overcome the pressure.

    Make of it what you will.

    In other words, "lolfiction."

    Nothing really makes sense in the world of fantasy.

    We'll just say: "Comics! Ye and physics shalt ne'er mix!" Or something.
