Look, we know more about the surface of the moon than the deep ocean. DC has used this fact to let him pull stunts like the depicted one at least once.

Calling Aquaman lame is something only done by those with no grasp of the natural world at all. 

In order to simply survive at depths he's known to swim (500+ atmospheres of pressure) you'd need to be as tough as Superman. 

And commanding sea life? Forget about Cthulhu for a minute and assume the ocean of DC Earth has only "regular" sea life:

"He could control every creature that lives in the sea. But I don't think either of you know what that really means. Do you know, do you understand, do you have any idea how much life there is in just one single square mile of sea? I don't think you do... and if you multiply that by lots of miles in every direction... I'd never seen anything like it in my whole life... and God as my witness, I hope to never see it again."

He's a force to be reckoned with.

yeah even on dry land away from the water, he's still incredibly strong and a trained fighter.  plus he's the king of Atlantis for good reason.

TV Tropes brought me here.

Also, I appreciate your use of Brave and the Bold Aquaman. The best Aquaman. :D

False. Cthulhu is not a creature of the deep. He only sleeps there.
sstabeler's avatar
maybe not the actual cthulhu, but there's been at least one comic where Aquaman was controlling something that was close enough that it doesn't necessarily matter,

Welp, looks like all of Aquaman's detractors are doomed.

Not very much so, given that you can do, well, *gestures to Cthulhu* THAT.

In theory, it would work on Godzilla too.
