Power Action Deep Sea Kick

About This Vintage Toy

Paul Norris and Mort Weisinger created the Aquaman comic book character in the early 1940s. Aquaman’s character first debuted in the issue of More Fun Comics #73 in November of 1941. During the late 1960s, Aquaman became a founding member of the Justice League, teaming up with Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman to form the most powerful team of superheroes in the DC catalog, inevitably paving the way to 1984 launch of the Super Powers Collection toy series. Aquaman is also known Arthur Curry, a half-human, half-Atlantean that possesses various powers, including superhuman strength telepathic control over marine life. His amphibious body chemistry allows him to survive on land or sea, providing added value and expertise to his justice league companions in specific marine-based regions of the globe.


The Aquaman action figure offered a mechanical “Power Action Deep Sea Kick” feature that activated simulated underwater swimming kicking movement when both arms were squeezed inward. The sculpting of the action figure was highly detailed for the time and very reminiscent of any expectations based upon the previous comic books and animated programs. The Aquaman action figure included a traditional Atlantean trident typically held by the throne of the royal family of Atlantis.

The Aquaman action figure offered 7 points of articulation with the hips, knees, shoulders, and neck. The innovative mechanical “Super Power Action” often created loose joints and limbs over time, making some action figures challenging to stand an offer possibility. Finding an action figure with a perfect “Super Power Action” functionality along with mint condition paint and accessories can fetch a much higher value on the current collectors market.
