Aquaman doesn’t get much respect in the pantheon of superheroes, his super power being the ability to politely request assistance from otherwise normal wild animals. But Lake Superior has its own Aquaman, in the form of Duluth’s Jim Richardson. WDIO had the story last night.
Nutshell: Richardson dresses like Aquaman and dives underwater to pick up litter, mostly beer bottles. He records his exploits, and he’s on the news.
At one point Lake Superior Aquaman deadpans to the camera that he’ll summon a giant catfish to eat litterers. One of my sons was watching and thought he wasn’t kidding. I have to admit, that was cool.
