I don’t really understand what you mean by “the point” of Aquaman, he’s a superhero in comic books, but what I can do is tell you about him and all of his badassery.
First off, his physique. His powers are directly affected by water: while submerged he is at his most powerful and bone dry he’s at his weakest, but on land soaking wet he is capable of lifting over 10,000 tons, he’s bulletproof, has reflexes 15x faster than a normal human, can swim over 1,000 knots and is extremely resistant to energy blasts. Couple that with his expert fighting skills and you have one badass dude. here he is tossing Wonder Woman around in Flashpoint Paradox:
Also, he’s king of the ocean. Meaning 71% of the Earth is under his rule. He often reminds humans that the Earth is more his than theirs. And being ruler of the ocean gives him command over its creatures. All of them, from whales to plankton. And sharks:
Not only can he command sea creatures, but Aquaman is also a fully functioning telepath, capable of mind to mind communication, mind probes, mental domination, mental attacks, and controlling land animals as well:
He often wields the Trident of Neptune. It can manipulate and conjure water, blast energy bolts, create force fields, command the sea (making tidal waves or whirlpools or even making columns of water to stand on), control the weather, unleash blasts of lightning, and transform living creatures into other forms. It’s also useful for stabbing Darkseid in the face:
His influence over the majority of the Earth, his vast strength and command of the sea make him invaluable to the Justice League, and his no-nonsense and arrogant attitude make him feared and respected.
thanks for asking!
