Aquaman (Arthur Curry) is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. Created by Paul Norris and Mort Weisinger, the character debuted in More Fun Comics #73 in 1941. Initially a backup feature in DC's anthology titles, Aquaman later starred in several volumes of a solo comic book series. During the late 1950s and 1960s superhero-revival period known as the Silver Age, he was a founding member of the Justice League. The character's original 1960s animated appearances left a lasting impression, making Aquaman widely recognized in popular culture and one of the world's most recognized superheroes.
In 2016, Aquaman was rebooted along with the entire DC Universe as part of the Rebirth series, which included a relaunch of weekly issues of comics and focused on creating a connected DC Universe. The relaunch also included a refreshed character design for Aquaman, which we see here. This came at the same time that Aquaman (portrayed by Jason Momoa) made his first appearance in the DC film series Justice League.
