A good superhero is one that saves people from an evil villain. But aquaman outside of the water has no powers and when he is on land where people need to be saved he is barely even a superhero, never mind a good one. If there were more conflicts in the water then you would have a point. They could make a good movie with him featuring aqua aliens that have gills.

Ok, you are really stupid Aquaman can go out of the water first of all look at any comic book that has Aquaman in it. He can control water. He killed superman outside of water. So your argument is invalid. Furthermore, he has killed many and even tricked the justice league many times. He also has some of the largest muscles for the remote justice league

I never said he can't go on land, I just said that when he is on land he sucks. Ok controlling water is such a crappy power, water can't even kill anybody. He has killed many, and he is still a superhero, but in terms of superhero tiers he is middle at best. He is not a better superhero than batman, superman, or wonder woman. (https://assets.ec.quoracdn.net...) Largest muscles doesn't really mean anything when you are dealing with superhumans who can shoot lasers out of their eyes.

I agree that he is not the best superhero, but he still has the capability to kill superman as well as kill many of the justice league. Outside of water doesn't really make him any worse. All of his powers work outside of water just as good as they do in water so being outside of water really doesn't faze him. Also, there is still water circulating around him in the sewers in the water pipes. So that might make him just the slightest bit more powerful. In the comics, he killed superman and so of the other justice league members villains that they were incapable of killing. All in all, he may not be the best superhero, but he is a good one(like the debate states).

The writers have been making a conscious effort as of late to make him more relevant, that I cannot deny, but to classify him as a good superhero is a bit out of line in my opinion. I feel that he is a mediocre superhero because most of the conflicts that superheros have to deal with are on land where he is noticeably weaker, as the picture I inserted from the comic shows. In the comics he did kill superman one time but he also had to get rescued by the justice league because he was too weak. He is not stronger than superman, wonder woman, or batman, therefore I would not classify him as a good superhero. He is not the worst superhero (hawkgirl) but he is not a good one either.

If we were debating whether he is one of the greatest superheroes that would be a completely different story you would beat me hands down, but we are debating whether he is a good superhero or not. So really if DC thought he wasn't worth being in the largest or most powerful justice league then they would not have put him in.

Exactly my point, on land where all of the real action happens he sucks.
