In the late 1940s, writer Mort Weisinger and artist Paul Norris, created Aquaman. Some say the "Sovereign of the Seas was merely DC's answer to the popular Timely Comics (later Marvel Comics) character Namor: the Submariner. But the A-man had a style, and following, all his own.. According to Wikipedia:
"In his early Golden Age appearances you find out right away that he has the ability to breathe underwater and superhuman strength enabling him to swim at high speeds. He was also shown to have the ability to communicate with sea-life and have them do his bidding. Initially, he was depicted as speaking to sea creatures "in their own language," and only when they were close enough to hear him rather than being telepathic in nature. While he was often described as the "sovereign of the sea," with the waters of the entire globe his "domain," and almost every sea creature his "loyal subject," the title was never an official one.

Art by Paul Norris.

Aquaman's adventures took place all across the world, and the only base he appeared to have was "an ancient temple of lost Atlantis, kept underwater," in which he kept a solitary throne.There was also a structure called the "Aquacave", a dry series of caves in which he kept the "Atlantis Chronicles", although it is unclear if this is distinct from the ancient temple, or the same location.

During his wartime adventures, most of Aquaman's foes were Nazi U-boat commanders and various Axis villains. The rest of his adventures in the 1940s and 1950s had him dealing with various sea-based criminals, including modern-day pirates such as his longtime archenemy Black Jack, as well as various threats to aquatic life, shipping lanes, and sailors."


The model I've designed is patterned directly from the art above featuring Aquaman's 1st appearance. I've included glove, boot and belt variations so that you can create the Golden Age or Silver Age version of the Undersea King.

Happy Modeling!!
