Here’s the official synopsis:

A founding member of the Justice League, Aquaman’s most widely recognized power is the telepathic ability to communicate with marine life, which he can summon from great distances.

He also possesses superhuman strength, can swim at very high speeds and is capable of seeing near total darkness. Aquaman’s trident is indestructible and can cut the flesh of Superman.
