How do you think NRS should handle Aquaman?

Aquaman is a tricky character to pull off as serious to the public.
How should NRS do Aquaman in a way that no one would think he's lame?

I think that he should have a trident for a weapon like this

His appearance shouldn't be lighthearted. He shouldn't be smiling a whole lot like this or this

He should look serious, like he's not fucking around like this and this minus the hook hand ofcourse.

He should also have his water hand to implement water moves and do crazy stuff like here

In terms of marketing. NRS should hype up a new trailer that'l blow our minds away like Noob Saibot's did. Something like that to get us super hyped about Aquaman.

What else do you think NRS should incorporate into Aquaman?

I think they should dull down the brightness of the Orange and green for starters, I think he will definately get a more "armoured" costume like the Flash and bats have.

I agree with what you said about the Trident and water hand I think that would be cool.

I don't think his "Power of sealife" thing should be explored in his moveset (but if the game has a storymode it should!) I think most of his specials should stem from his water hand, and his combos could feature the trident somewhat similar to Jades fighting style in this game, but more aggressive and less flashy.

He could indeed get the Noob Saibot treatment. Maybe at the expense of someone popular.

Hopefully they don't go with that ridiculous 90s anti-hero Aquaman. I imagine that they could do some Rain-ish things with him.

Im enjoying the New 52 Aquaman. NRS should follow that template and just add the "MK" spice. Armor, darker color scheme, trident, water special moves.

After that, Aquaman should be good to go. Its not tricky at all. Just don't copy the dumb crap thats been done in the past - simple.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think the new 52 Aquaman can create water. Aquaman would be tough to pull off in this game....but I think he'll make it. He's powers center around controlling sea life.

I really see nothing wrong with the 90's version. Long hair, beard, no orange, hook hand, badass demeanor. All pluses in my book.

With a hook hand, he could be a grapple type of character, similar to Scorpion. Alternatively, he could have his magic water hand to manipulate water from the moisture in the air (a la anywhere). Least of all, he could just be equipped with his trident.

I feel like Aquaman, if done right, could be the Ermac of Injustice: Gods Among Us.

Rain with a sort of Shao Kahn complex.

He'd have strong moves like throwing the trident (like shao kahn throws his spear)...but maybe it's made of water or something so that he's not carrying the thing all the time.

There's plenty of things to do with any of the elements though, including water. Just watch the Avatar Last Airbender (or, Avatar: Legend of Korra), or Naruto series, etc.

There's no excuse to botch a character like Aquaman. Just don't screw up his costume(s) and he'll be awesome. Aquaman is one I expect to surprise everyone.

I'm glad to see everyones positive for Aquaman, I've already said a few times I'm excited for him the most.

He's going to be the Stryker for Injustice actually :)

I'll be honest, but I like Aquaman even if he's considered a huge joke my most people. Also I might catch hell for this, but I really enjoy Aquaman from Batman Brave and the Bold.

I can see him on specific stages: Watchtower's Aquarium and Atlantis Stages could support some big interactions: call on sea life there, tsunami attack, and waterspouts.

He should definitely utilize the trident and the water hand. I think he should have his shorter haircut.

I really enjoy Aquaman from Batman Brave and the Bold.
OUTRAGEOUS

But in all seriousness if Aquaman does make it in he has to have the orange and green color scheme. It's just his colors. It'd be like putting Wonder Woman in a pink skirt or something to take him out of his uniform.

Also anyone that's paid attention to DC in the past five years knows that Aquaman is squarely in the badass range of characters. In general the atlanteans have be badass for awhile now.

They most likely will darken the colors.

I've already came up with a Super Move idea for Aquaman.

Aquaman takes his trident and hits them in the face with the blunt end then stabs them in the foot which makes them fall down. He grabs them with his water hand. The opponent is caughing and gagging before he hurls them into the air. The water hand elongates as he throws them. He jumps up and stabs them in the stomach with the trident spins around 1 time and throws them into the ground. This makes them bounce up allowing for juggle combos.

I kind of don't want Aquaman to use the trident. He should be a power character and just beat the snot out of you.
I kind of hate Wonder Woman using weapons as well.

I hope they have been reading the his current series. That is definitely the way I think NRS should handle him.
