The Origin of Aquaman

Jason Momoa Aquaman | Warner Bros

The character of Aquaman is played by Jason Momoa, an actor who has played in films Wolves. Aquaman has a real name Arthur Curry, he is half human and half Atlantean.

His mother was the queen of Atlantis named Atlanna, while his father was a lighthouse keeper named Thomas Curry. Aquaman’s parents fall in love with each other after Atlanna saves Thomas from a storm at sea.

Unfortunately, the relationship between the two is not approved, resulting in Atlanna being a prisoner of Atlantis. Until then, Atlanna managed to escape and gave birth to a baby boy on the mainland, the baby named Arthur Curry.

For the good of Thomas and his son, Atlanna was forced to leave the two of them and return to Atlantis again. Little Aquaman was only raised by his father, without a mother figure beside him.
