It’s a bird, it’s a plane… No, it’s the hot guy who played Aquaman in ‘Smallville.’

You’ve probably seen Alan Ritchson somewhere, whether in an underwear ad or on TV. He just doesn’t go away, but we’re not complaining. Any excuse to stare at his abs is completely acceptable.

Before his superhero days, Ritchson spent his time modeling for the Abercrombie & Fitch catalog, International Jock‘s line of underwear and N2N Bodywear. His football-player physique also got picked up by Spike TV for the show ‘Blue Mountain State,’ where he plays heart-throb linebacker Thad Castle.
