I may have mentioned once or a dozen times that my husband is a distance swimmer who successfully crossed the English Channel in 2013 in 10 hours 38 minutes. (shameless bragging 😉 I’m so proud of him.)
He’s been swimming competitively since he was seven years old, and so naturally his favorite super hero is Aquaman. Unfortunately, Aquaman gets a lot of flack for having “lame” super powers. My husband is quite butt-hurt about it.
Personally, I always thought Aquaman was cool. When I was younger, I wanted to be a marine biologist… until I took my first biology class. I guess I just wanted to feed the turtles, swim with sharks and play with the dolphins and seals. I wouldn’t mind having the power to call to marine life, but since my swimming skills lag somewhere just ahead of my science ones, I guess having my husband as a fish will have to suffice.
However, don’t mind me if I’m imagining him more like this version of Aquaman, as played by Jason Momoa, formerly Khal Drogo on Game of Thrones, and soon to debut in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman movie.
