Over at John Byrne’s Forum, the fans have realized what the problem with Aquaman is:
” I just finished reading the Aquaman Showcase book the other day, and I noticed that in 500 pages of comics, Aquaman throws a punch maybe three times. Every so often he’ll kick a weapon out of someone’s hand, but for the most part, he lets his army of ‘finny friends’ do all the dirty work. No wonder folks think he’s lame!”
“At least Namor hits stuff! Viva la Sub-Mariner!”
“One of the reasons I couldn’t like the 90s Fox Spider-Man show. I don’t think he threw one punch the whole time. Not the kinda Spider-Man I want to see.”
That’s the problem with superheroes. Not enough hitting.
