It looks like Smallville is beginning to spawn off some spin-off television shows... but who gets it?

Aquaman Likes TV

There's some serious buzz down at the WB water towers suggesting the that they are about to introduce another comic-book inspired TV show to their line-up.

"Aquaman" would star Alan Ritchson as the funky-fish Superhero. Like Tom Welling, Alan Ritchson is a former model.

The "Smallville" episode featuring "Aquaman" received an overwhelming response: it averaged a season-high 2.9 rating/8 share in adults 18-49 and 6.4 million viewers overall. So it's no suprise they would consider making the wet-one a permanent member of the WB family.

Aquaman is a DC Comics superhero. Created by Paul Norris and Mort Weisinger, he first appeared in More Fun Comics #73 (1941).

Like Marvel Comics’ Sub-Mariner, Aquaman is an undersea hero originating from the mythical kingdom of Atlantis. In the traditional version of his origin, he was Arthur Curry, the son of Tom Curry, a human lighthouse keeper, and Atlanna, an outcast from Atlantis. Recent comics, however, depict Aquaman as an orphan of purely underwater heritage who was raised for a brief period of time by a lighthouse keeper named Arthur Curry. In either case, Arthur eventually learned about his origins and powers, and vowed to defend the Earth's oceans and its inhabitants.

Aquaman's most noteworthy powers are his ability to breathe underwater, communicate (via telepathy) with all forms of sea life, and swim at fast speeds. In some depictions, Aquaman also possesses limited degrees of superstrength and invulnerability.
