Aquaman Movie

So is it ever explained how Arthur and Atlan can talk with fish but no one else can? How does Mera control water and no one else? Can her dad, King Nereus do it? And where did Arthur get his Justice League suit if he’s never been to Atlantis? Vulko?

Good questions, unsure. Maybe, the comics explain. My educated guess, both Atlan and Arthur may have been both half-dwellers. Mera hails from Xebel and her half-sister Siren, if I am not mistaken, has similar abilities, but is an assassin. Arthur may have gotten the suit from Mera after the mother box got stolen. What is your question with Vulko?

Yes Mera has hard water powers b/c of her race (Xebel). However, not everyone who is from Xebel can do it. It was taught only to the royals of Xebel & Mera was the most prolific. She can only do it for short durations as it is very straining on her & drains her of energy.

I didn’t see your 2nd question. Arthur escapes from being hung on a reef as a baby. He’s taken in by Thomas Curry at the lighthouse. After Thomas is killed by Atlanteans, Arthur goes off to the oceans where he eventually finds Atlantis. He’s arrested as a prisoner & given the orange suit along with all Atlantean prisoners. So it’s basically a prison uniform that he keeps & wears as his battle suit if that’s the suit your asking about. It’s barely discussed but it’s in Aquaman ‘89 aka Aquaman special #1. The name Aquaman is a taunt & he keeps it along with the suit to inspire himself.

Oh sorry, no it was his prison suit

I think he is talking about the heavily armored suit from the justice league movie, not the orange one. I which case yeah probably from Vulko or Mera.

Ok I was lost… I just assumed it was about the orange battle armor. My bad, just trying to help out. I apologize if I go overboard. This is my 1st online chat forum I’ve ever been part of so I’m learning on the go. Also, I have extreme ocd & part of it involves over explaining things. I feel uncomfortable unless I cover all bases & I tend to offer a lot of info due to that.

If we’re going by the DCFU- and I hope we are since we’re in the films discussion room- I believe we are to assume that the Justice League Aquaman armor came from Vulko or Mera. Yes that should have been explained a bit more in that film. …Probably was before the siege(Cough- WB execs)…no apology yall got my $75 .
Anyway , That bomb-ass Orange/Gold leaf suit from AQM should be thought to have come from exactly where it was explained. Which as you noted is not exactly canon but remarkably worthy of this big screen iteration no doubt.
