King Shark is a large android shark who was an foe of Superboy, and late joined the Suicide Squad and the Secret Six.


Born in Hawaii, Nanaue is a Humanoid shark, his forefather is “ The King of all Sharks ” — besides known as the Shark God. other characters, such as extra agent Sam Makoa, have dismissed this as superstition and referred to Nanaue as a “ savage mutation ” with no mysterious nature. It has besides been implied he was one of the “ violent serviceman ”, evolved animals based on those Earth-AD .

King Shark was responsible for respective missing persons several years before Superboy arrived in Hawaii. Aided by his family, he had viciously eaten the kidnap persons. Sam Makoa was responsible for bringing him in and bore the scars everlastingly after. According to Makoa, it took a combination of heavy weaponry and swerve luck that his team was able to bring him in ( and several of his companion officers were slain ). Makoa bore a personal stew against King Shark after that. [ 1 ] King Shark was freed by the Silicon Dragons shortly after Superboy arrived at Hawaii. The Dragons planned on hiring him ( possibly to use against Superboy ), but Nanaue was not concern. He killed his liberators before fleeing the prison. [ 2 ] King Shark headed to his mother ‘s house. She sheltered him ( and even allowed him to bite her sleeve off to feed ) and Shark made an abort attempt to snag a swimmer on a beach, but alternatively scared some children out of the water. Superboy, learning Shark ‘s origins from Makoa, insisted on going along with Makoa to apprehend him. Shark ambushed the kid, but Superboy managed to take him down by firing a point blank blast of heat vision from his “ roentgenogram spectacles. ” King Shark was knocked out and taken second into hands. [ 1 ] When Superboy and Makoa were assigned to the Suicide Squad to destroy the Silicon Dragons, King Shark was forced to help by Amanda Waller, given that the base was at the bottomland of the ocean ( and, as Waller put it, in his element ). An explosive belt was strapped to his waist, set to detonate if anything happened to Makoa, or if he got excessively army for the liberation of rwanda from him. other members of the Squad included Knockout, Sidearm, and Squad veterans Deadshot and Captain Boomerang. Nanuae was a crazed fight machine, shredding legions of the Dragons. He toyed with Makoa american samoa much as he could, but besides kept him from damage flush when Makoa was n’t mindful of danger. When Sidearm betrayed the team by trying to cut and run, Nanue casually murdered him by stabbing him in the back. After a long series of running battles, King Shark was purposefully knocked into the reactors of the submerged basis by Knockout, who crushed the belt. The resulting explosion completely destroyed the lair, leaving no trace of either Knockout or King Shark. [ 3 ] After a research team sent to investigate the lair ‘s remains went missing, King Shark was initially suspected ( specially since Knockout had turned up alive and well in Hawaii ), but an investigation by Superboy and Makoa uncovered that it was actually Black Manta who was creditworthy. [ 4 ] King Shark turned up alive and well curtly thereafter, duking it out with Superboy, but he was defeated again and driven out to sea. [ 5 ] King Shark by and by turned up in the Wild Lands ( where the implication that he was actually a Wild man was made ) and contend Superboy and his allies. After a boisterous battle, he was defeated, but no body was recovered. [ 6 ]

King Shark besides appeared as a member of the host of villains prompted by Manchester Black to assault Superman all at once. In this sheath, he turned up in Metropolis and attacked Jimmy Olsen. Superman promptly took him down, knocking most of his teeth out ( although obviously they grew bet on late ). Whereas in all of his former appearances he had only two lines of negotiation, in this issue he was quite chatty ( although that may have plainly been because of Black ‘s influence ). He besides was physically smaller and a farseeing direction from the water system. [ 7 ] King Shark besides made an appearance during the Joker ‘s final Laugh carouse with Orca. King Shark was recruited into Alexander Luthor ‘s Secret Society of Supervillains and was one of the many commit to attack Atlantis. During the struggle he killed Neptune Perkins .
Nanaue has since reappeared in Aquaman, one year after Infinite Crisis, bearing a scratch from a former brush with him. He was less violent and more bigmouthed than in former appearances. His origin has been decidedly given as son of the Shark God, due to the new Aquaman reserve being more magic-based than previous incarnations. It besides appears that he will be a major character from immediately on : in fact, he has presently started acting as an unwilling caretaker for Arthur Joseph Curry. Saved from a gang of marauders by the young valet, he brought him to the mysterious Dweller in the Depths ( the mutated, for stranger reasons, Aquaman ) who gave him the character of assisting the “ new Aquaman ” in filling his function. Though much feigning disrespect and disappearing for a while, King Shark has been helpful in sharing his cognition of the direction of ocean with his young jesus. It is by and by revealed in a flashback sequence that he was asked to do so by his forefather :

“The currents of destiny bend and twist around that young man. For good or ill, he will shape the coming oceanscape. You will protect him. You will be my agent in his camp. Close enough to guard against others who seek to control him. And close enough, when I decide the time is ripe… … to strike, and kill him without warning.”

The following arch tells the first base meet between the original Aquaman and King Shark, which occurred several years ago. It took invest in Reef ‘s end, a small surround town in the Coral Sea, aloof from Atlantis. Orin – who was still the King of Atlantis at this time – fight King Shark because he murdered a priest belong to to the order of the Thorny Crown. In the last six months, King Shark had killed a distribute of other members of this group, obeying his forefather ‘s will. indeed, the Order was associated with an old prophecy :

“When thorned crown lies shattered, she comes. Born of coral, of life-in-death, of long prayer. Shake the sea floor with her power, shall she, shake the destiny of all beneath the waves…”

The Shark God believed that if the Order was destroyed, that would trigger the prophecy, birthing some great power in the serve. however, King Shark was defeated by Aquaman before reaching his don ‘s goal. He then was imprisoned by priests of the Thorny Crown during three years, before achieving escape ; Nanaue mentioned that he was tortured during his captivity.
