He may be a superhero on the big screen, but in real life Jason Momoa struggles with mechanical failures like the rest of us.

The 38-year-old Aquaman actor was spotted near his home in Topanga Canyon, California on Sunday trying to start his motorcycle in a grocery store parking lot.

An eyewitness told DailyMail.com, 'It was mid-afternoon and over 100-degrees, you could tell he was really annoyed. 

'He would start it up, get his helmet back on and jump on it only to have it conk out. This went on for about 40 minutes before he ultimately got it going.'

The bike itself was nothing to write home about, says our source, 'It was an antique, or something you might have seen in a post apocalyptic movie like Mad Max. God knows where he got this thing.'

In photos obtained by DailyMail.com, Momoa, dressed in a black tank top and red pants, can be seen undoing his hair from his signature 'manbun' in frustration.

'It was like watching one of those commercials where the beautiful woman shakes her hair out in slow motion, but in this case it was Aquaman,' the source added. 

'When he finally got the bike going he chugged off out of the parking lot, taking his time. It seemed like he was an uneasy rider, not fully trusting that it wouldn't break down again.'

A cleaned up and confident Momoa had appeared at Comic-Con in San Diego the day prior to promote his upcoming movie Aquaman, set to hit theaters December 21, 2018.

He was joined by co-stars Amber Heard and Nicole Kidman for the released of the film's trailer - which was the first look at Momoa as Arthur Curry a.k.a. Aquaman since 2017's Justice League.

The clip was full of action as a war brews between Aquaman and his half brother, played by Patrick Wilson.

But what stood out the most is the chemistry between Momoa and Heard, who plays Mera, queen of the sea.    

The actor was also seen walking the red carpet with his stepdaughter, actress Zoe Kravitz, 29. 

Momoa married Kravitz's mother, Cosby Show star Lisa Bonet, 50, last year, but have been together since 2004. The couple has two children.
