Background Information


In the Comics

Aqualad is the son of King Thar and Queen Berra of Tritonis, the sister city of Aquaman's home Poseidonis from the continent of Atlantis.

When Thar's brother, Zath, led a revolt with his followers, the Idyllists, Thar was killed, and Berra was banished to Poseidonis. When Garth (Aqualad's real name) was born, he was left to die because of his purple eyes, which was seen as a sign of genetic inferiority. However, he was saved by Aquaman's biological father, Atlan, who raised him as his own. After leaving Atlan, Aqualad met Atlan's son, Aquaman, whom he rescued from certain death. Grateful for what he had done, Aquaman made Aqualad his sidekick.[1]
