Child of an Atlantean Queen and lighthouse keeper, Aquaman defends two worlds while feeling at home in neither.
Arthur Curry’s life was forever altered when the media discovered an “Aquaman” from Atlantis living in a coastal town in Maine. This news reached the infamous treasure hunter, Black Manta, whose obsession with Atlantean relics eventually led to the death of Arthur’s father. In his grief, Arthur abandoned the surface and claimed his rightful place as King of Atlantis. After years of squabbling and intrigues, Arthur tired of the court and returned to the surface with his love, Mera, where he protects both worlds, yet feeling at home in neither.
Aquaman is a strong duelist who wields the Atlantean King’s Trident to great effect in combat.
