He fights criminals along with his family and sidekicks. His powers include telepathy, mastery of sea creatures, unbelievable strength and the ability to survive on land and underwater at great depths.
Aquaman’s abilities make him a very good fit in Justice League with the rest of the League’s superheroes.
