Atlantis

The location of Atlantis, as seen on a map in the Aquacave.[1]

Atlantis was a large continent or land mass that sunk below the sea many thousands of years ago.


There are at least four known Atlantean cities that have been found since the destruction of the continent.

Poseidonis

One city still exists under the Atlantic Ocean, ruled by Aquaman. It is protected by a large dome. The city is called Poseidonis.[2]

Ocina's Atlantean city

Another surviving Atlantean city is ruled by Queen Ocina, who commands an all-female army. Their goal is to conquer mankind. This Atlantean island is able to move about throughout the oceans like a submarine, thanks to the technological wonders of the Atlanteans.[3]

Un-named Atlantean city

The ruins of an Atlantean city were found through a sea fissure, deep in the Earth's core.[4]

Tritonis

Aqualad is from the Atlantean city, Tritonis.

It is unknown if any other Atlantean cities had survived the destruction of Atlantis.

Natives

Oceana

Oceana is the 'forgotten' sister city to Atlantis.

In the comics

  • Atlantis first appeared in the comic books, in Adventure Comics vol. 1, #260[8] (May 1959) and was created by Robert Bernstein and Ramona Fradon.
  • It was meant to be the Atlantis from mythology (the mythical island of Atlantis first mentioned in Plato's initial dialogue the Timaeus, written circa 360 BC).
  • The DC Comics mini-series The Atlantis Chronicles[9] details its' rich history much greater. But the history shown in this mini-series does not necessarily reflect the history of Atlantis in the Superfriends universe, since it is of another universe.

  4. The actual coordinates of these Atlantean ruins in the center of the earth is unknown. The fissure that led there was located 721 miles northeast of Honolulu, but the Atlantean ruins were located much farther...deep beneath the earth's crust. And possibly no where near those coordinates. Wonder Woman suspected that it must have fallen through a sea fissure and ended up there. These ruins are seen in the new SuperFriends (1978) episode: Battle at the Earth's Core.
