Happy Birthday, Aquaman!
I have no idea why I like Aquaman. I already tried here to explain why I like him, but I just can't. He isn't one of the Biggies, and I've always supported the underdogs (not *that* Underdog....). Be that as it may, after I got back to the US after spending 14 years in Japan, I found it easy to claim Aquaman as "mine." Everybody knew Batman, Superman, Spiderman, and the X-Men, but the blonde guy in orange and green was mostly off the Pop Culture stage in the late 90s and 2000s. So I bought and wore t-shirts, I talked him up to people, and now, at my current job as interpreter/administrator for an R&D facility, the guys in my department help me celebrate Aquaman's birthday!
