Death Battle Fanon Wiki

I couldn't turn my back on the world -- I was a super-hero long before I was a king.
~ Aquaman - Adventure Comics #444 (April, 1976)

That's right, Manta, tell us all about costs -- and payments! Like the payment you owe me for my son's life!
~ Aquaman - Aquaman #57 (September, 1977)

I know there are certain benighted souls who think I'm some kind of third-rate hero, Scavenger -- but I'd think that you of all people -- would know better! But since you seem a bit confused -- let me make this perfectly clear... I was in the world-saving game when people like Firestorm and Black Lightning were still in diapers... I've worked hard to earn the respect and trust of every living creature beneath the waves -- and I take my job very seriously... so get this through your head, punk... I'm Aquaman, King of the Seven Seas... and I'm the BEST!
~ Aquaman - Adventure Comics #475 (September, 1980)

I'm buried under people's expectations of me. People see in me only what they need -- only what they want to see. It's up to me who I really am.
~ Aquaman - Aquaman Vol. 4 #4 (March, 1992)
