Green Lantern

  • What does a mythical, mystical, undersea world need with missiles? [pauses] And I so dare you to say that five times fast.


  • Arthur Curry: We weren't done talking.
  • Lois Lane: (about Wonder Woman) I would not want to be on her bad side.
  • Hal Jordan: I'm gonna disembowel you, Barry.
  • Shazam: (to Cyborg after they find Superman and Wonder Woman together) Are they on a date?
  • Diana Prince: (to Lois) No, it's a date.


Green Lantern: I'll tell you, Flash-Man, I have seen my share of weirdo crapola in this job. But Atlantis? Come on.
Flash: But you're good with the intergalactic cops, aliens, and the cybernetic human?
Green Lantern: What can I say? Magic gives me the heebie jeebies.

(Ocean Master is close to killing Arthur until Cyborg displays a holographic footage of Orm's confession)
Mera in Footage: You killed her!
Ocean Master in Footage: I did.
Ocean Master: What is this?!
Ocean Master in Footage: I ran the sword through her myself as she mewled for peace. You can count yourself fortunate, bastard. At least our mother won't be the impediment to your life that she was to mine.
(footage plays again)
Atlantean Soldier: Orm killed our Queen?! We are betrayed! (the Atlanteans turn against Orm)
Ocean Master: No. Wait. This deception is their surface magic!
Mera: Liar! I was there when Orm boasted of the murder of our queen. It was as you see.
Ocean Master: I am your king. I did this for you!
(Arthur then punches Orm in the face, breaking half of his mask and bleeding his nose)
Aquaman: Is this the king you want, Atlanteans? A coward who lies to you? You need a light to guide you in the darkness, people of Atlantis. My people.
Mera: What are you doing?
Aquaman: Becoming a beacon. I was born of two worlds. Atlantean by birth. Human by instinct. Join me and we will bridge those worlds in peace.

(Arthur joins the Justice League)
Cyborg: He needs a codename.
Shazam: Yeah? Well, online, they're calling him "Aquaman".
Aquaman: Hate that.
Green Lantern: Aquaman it is!
