Aqualad by hellcorpceo Aqualad by hellcorpceo
I donít watch Young Justice, but I did happen to catch an episode featuring a character I thought was Black Manta, only to have him take off his helmet and reveal the Hottest Man In The Universe. Who, in turn, was later revealed to be Aqualad. Aqualad. Worst name + worst mentor = coolest guy? I donít know, maybe itís like two negatives making a positive or something.

Aquaman is a great mentor; that whole 'talking to fish' thing was reconted to 'telepathically dominating sea animals to do his bidding'.  He is nearly as strong as Superman, and has the advantage if the battle goes under water.  The King of Atlantis also has access to an arsenal of techno-magical weapons, and an army of soldiers, scientists, and sorcerers.

He's a very misused character.

Kaldor'am (Aqualad) is a pretty cool.  In the first season of Young Justice he was The Team's field leader, but in the second season it's revealed that he's on a deep-cover mission to infiltrate Black Manta's organization, under the justifications that Black Manta was Kaldor's father and that Kaldor's love (Tula/Aqualass) had died on a mission for The Team.

I agree that 'Aqualad' is probably the worst name (outside the Legion of Superheroes' Matter-Eater Boy), and he's outgrown the costume in the series finale, but he's still a pretty cool character.  I would have liked to have seen more of him in Season 3, but, alas, DC Animated and/or Cartoon Network decided to not renew for a third season.

Young Justice was a good show, killed off before it's prime. Great artwork! I love the expression you managed to capture!! You've done "rogue Aqualad" justice. Clap

Aquaman is actually doing surprisingly well in comics these days, but your confusion is still understandable. Young Justice really is one of DC's smartest animated shows ever.

Doesn't Aqualad later become Tempest who goes around kicking ass and taking names. Also, is significantly more powerful than the guy he sidekicks for.

He was still a bit of a pussy in superhero standards. He is badass, but still a lower rank of badass.

whoops sorry late reply i've been on tumblr sorry

anyways he was a bit of a pussy in superfriends and some of silver age, we're not in the 80s anymore friend, ever since then he's been consistently badass
a high ranking badass actually, founding member of the justice league, leader of his own personal league with each member owning some of the most powerful magical artifacts in the world, king of over 71% of Earth's surface, owns an entire army of super-humans with high super strength & durability, also having some of the most advanced technology and many powerful wizards under his influence
don't mess with the King of Atlantis, you'll be facing his entire continent


also he cut off his own hand to save his son in JLA unlimited, like dang man animated Aquaman was metal as fuck you can't deny the high level of badassery there

The son of Black Manta and previous mentor was Aquaman, hence the Aqualad as his code name. His real name is a lot cooler!!
