You made Aquaman.

Way to go.

All the more reason to go to the beach. You can claim your rightful title as King of the Oceans.

And as for these Jocks, declare yourself to them as King of the Oceans. They'll surly by impressed.

Immediately thinking back to your expert knowledge of TV, you predict an imminent toilet bowl dunking and attempt to pre-emtively prevent it. Unfortunately  you are standing outside, nowhere near the toilets. Additionally, in the brief time you've had your powers you haven't yet been able to change the phase of water in any meaningful way.
A hooting jock swings a wet towel at you, which you are unable to dodge, but luckily your hockey pads are easily able to absorb the attack's force. Leaving you merely humiliated.

Stepping back out of towelling range, you clear your throat and make your declaration:

"Back, foolish Jocks! Thou wouldst assail the KING OF THE OCEAN?"

Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Make the water escape their bladders and escape into the night, declaring victory.

You focus your power and concentrate on moving the water out of the bladder of the Head Jock. This feat is the most complex use of your power you have yet attempted, but you are able to send a steady trickle out of his bladder and into his pants.

"What the ****?!" he cries, shooting a hand to his crotch and feeling the warm applejuice seeping through his shorts. He turns around and rushes back into the swimming pool building and runs into the Men's Toilets. His comrades are perplexed, but continue to slowly advance on you until they have you surrounded. A simple escape seems impossible at this juncture.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Declaring your mastery over the inscutable power of the sea you place a hand on the forehead of one of the three attacking Jocks. Unfortunately for you his no-doubt undernourished brain is somehow able to shrug off the debilitating pain, and the merciless towel-whipping continues, with one towel beating you over the head hard enough to cause a painful bruise.
Annoyed, you grab the Jock by the face and score a critical hit, pushing your new power to so far unseen heights and giving his head a 31 alarm icecreaming. The Jock vomits with sudden pain and staggers away from you, cursing. His two friends run after him, considering the risk of cranial discomfort too great to justify a continued session of mirthful whipping.

"Victory is mine curs! The King of the Ocean will not take a towel-whipping so lightly a second time!"

And with that, your first adventure is concluded, and you retreat into the shadows!

Stay tuned for the next installment of John's adventures some time this weekend. In the meantime, work on a fitting Super-Name for our new superhero.

Pretty sure we already now have what amounts to some noteriety as King of the Ocean.  That gets my vote.

You hereby elect to be known as BROSEIDON, KING OF THE OCEAN.


You spend less than five minutes designing your costume in MS Paint. This thing is going to look totally boss once you trawl eBay for materials.



Those aren't stink lines. They're POWER lines.

Issue 2

It is two days after your victory over the jocks. You have decided to patrol the beach because its a warm evening and the old people at the pool creep you out.

Your costume is getting you admiring looks from passersby. Or at least you assume they are admiring looks, you are wearing sunglasses at dusk and its a little hard to make things out.

Suddenly you hear a scream and gunshots offshore. "**** hot!" you cry. A real crime in progress!

You direct your gaze a little way from the beach where a luxury yatch is under attack by what appear to be flamboyant homosexuals in dinghies.

What do you do?
