He's much more of a hero than one might think.
He's also an Atlantean, this makes him more agile, strong, and faster (at both running at swimming), compared to a human being. He's pretty much the Captain America of the Sea for the JLA.
Combine the above with his psychic abilities he's one hell of a hero. He also is the one person who stoped the sorceress from destroying the world during the Obsidian Age.
He's a king and a big authority leader in atlantis, nobody questions his judgment and the only reason why he subjects to the leaders of the surface world is because he can respect other leaders like a true diplomat.
He's most definently not a bitch outside of JLU.
