JLU Aquaman Paperweight

Here is the Justice League Unlimited version of the harpoon-for-a-hand Aquaman. The animated series was called Justice League (retitled Justice League Unlimited in Season 3), and featured this version of Aquaman. The show lasted five seasons and it also featured appearances from almost every hero in the DC Universe!

In the DC Universe, Aquaman is one of the big seven... Meaning he was one of the founders of the Justice League. The founders also include Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, The Flash and The Martian Manhunter, in addition to Aquaman. When the Justice League series first started, people were upset Hawkgirl got a regular spot as part of the big seven in place of Aquaman, but at least he appeared in a number of episodes. The show was well-crafted and a fine successor to the Batman and Superman animated series that came before.

This is the only collectible I have (so far) of the harpoon-for-a-hand Aquaman. Recently added to my collection for a very reasonable price, as the harpoon was broken. I read online that all the Aquaman paperweights had the same damage, which occurred during transport. I was able to repair it and save myself some coin!
