Arthur and Mera attack a boat full of child slavers.

He calls up a shark to defend himself. The shark is also dead.

What I find more interesting is not that he's able to control dead aquatic animals, but that he seems to have lost the ability to call live ones.

Have Atlanteans always been bullet proof?

From: [personal profile] theanswer
They're not really bullet proof. They draw blood as you can see on his head when he is struck. If they were bullet proof there wouldn't be a reason for him to protect Mera.

Their resistance to deep sea pressures makes their bodies very durable and dense.

Dunno about to this extent, but their tissues are dense enough (ocean depths and all) you definitely couldn't count on bullets stopping them. "Bullet resistant" at the least.

Looks like their outfits are partially responsible too.

Question! That scene with the dead sharks: Sharks don't have bones right? But they drew the sharks with bones or is that how cartilage looks and I haven't watched enough discovery channel?

From: [personal profile] theanswer
Their skeletons are made of cartilage, but they still look like bones.

People always give Aquaman shit for his fish-summoning powers, but some sea-critters are the stuff of freaking nightmares. Especially the ones that live near the bottom.

And I've also always been a fan of the idea that, if he wanted, he could ring up Cthulhu to do his work for him. XD

From: [personal profile] flidgetjerome
The thing about deep-water fish is is their bodies aren't designed for low-pressure environments, which is why giant squid that come to the surface never stay alive for very long.

So, sure, he could summon up some Abyssal Nightmare but only against a threat that it could deal with in 10 minutes.

And then put up with Atlantian News Sources criticising him for leading his troops into death, again.

Only for the criminals to be assailed with a hail of battered haddock and cod.

To be fair, some Somali pirates in a craft one step up from a rowboat fired on a 400+ foot US Navy frigate not that long ago, so it's not as if tactical blunders of that magnitude don't occur in the real world too...

Awesome: Mera's ability to Summon Water Weird. White Plume Mountain? Anyone? Bueller?
Awful: Bullets bounce off Atlanteans. Super strength, good, invulnerability also is too much.
Headdesk: Concentric circles from Arthur's forehead. Vuu vuu vuu is so lame.

I'm trying to get a good look at Mera's feet, whether she still has flippers. Not too important, but I kind of like the idea that Merpeople have a look that's a little alien.

The bullets bounced off the costume; you didn't notice that one of them drew blood from his forehead? (granted, it didn't impede him, but still...)

I love Mera's "oh shit" expression on the last page of this section (which isn't posted).

"We rule these seas!" Wow, stupid thug. You, a slaver on a crappy boat versus an actual king who can command the creatures of the sea.

Denial isn't just a river in egypt, it's a river that Aquaman fucking owns. (Read that how you will.)

I'm suddenly reminded of JLU scene when the Wonder Twins... I mean Downpour and Shifter fought Aquaman. Aquaman defeated a T-Rex underwater, and then Downpour unleashed his fury upon him, only to have Aquaman shrug it off like it was nothing.

"King of the Seas, remember?"

Squids are, like, 95% soft tissue. Being attacked by a dead squid would be like being attacked by wet toilet paper.

Isn't it amazing how bad guys can always shoot accurately when the target is bulletproof? Most pirates would switch to full-auto and miss most of their shots. There's be ricochets bouncing around.
