Aquaman - Silver Age.

Aquaman (nicknamed the King of the Seven Seas) is a fictional character and superhero who stars in many comic book titles by DC Comics. Created by Paul Norris and Mort Weisinger, the character debuted in More Fun Comics #73 (September 1941). Initially a backup feature in DC's anthology titles, Aquaman later starred in several volumes of a solo title. During the late 1950s and 1960s superhero-revival period known as the Silver Age, he was a founding member of the Justice League of America. In the 1990s Modern Age, Aquaman's character became more serious than in most previous interpretations, with story lines depicting the weight of his role as king of Atlantis. Later accounts reconciled both facets of the character, casting Aquaman as serious and broody, saddled with an ill reputation and struggling to find a true role and purpose beyond his public side as a deposed king and a fallen hero.


Aquaman has been portrayed by various actors in film and television media, both animated and live-action. Most recently, the character was portrayed by actor Jason Momoa in the DC Extended Universe films Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Justice League, and Aquaman, where he was reimagined as a gruff, "bad-ass" man of Polynesian descent, with long dark hair, a full beard, and extensive tattoos (as opposed to his classic portrayal as a blonde-haired white man).


In "The Robotic Manipulation", Raj wonders where Aquaman poops.

In "The Justice League Recombination", Raj dresses as Aquaman and grumbles about it throughout the episode, both because he thinks that "Aquaman sucks" and because the design of the costume makes it impossible for him to sit down.

In "The Deception Verification", Stuart tricks Sheldon into buying an Aquaman statue for $1200. This statue reappears in "The Spock Resonance", where it's revealed to have a hidden camera.

In "The Comic-Con Conundrum," Raj wears his Aquaman costume again while working as a sign twirler in order to make money for a Comic-Con ticket.

In "The Celebration Reverberation," Sheldon expresses a desire to start reading Aquaman comic books, saying that he wants to be able to tell people that he was reading them before it was cool to do so (possibly due to the positive reception of Jason Momoa's on-screen portrayal of the character). Leonard, however, thinks that the idea is dumb.
