Ed's Notes: So kind of a Golden Age, WWII era Aquaman. Except he gets it kind of worse than Aquaman.  He can talk to Dolphins and Whales only, can't summon or control them (or marine life in general) and has to stay in the water (or die) but can't BREATHE underwater, OR swim any better than an athletic human! No Swimming Power?! Also, while there is no time limit included on his Fatal Vulnerability, I'm going to assume it's after 1 hour (like Aquaman's) rather than the moment he leaves the water.
