"Wait, you're AGREEING with me?"

Aqualad is a sidekick of Aquaman.



Aqualad aka Garth is an Atlantean orphaned at birth. 4000 years ago, the Idylists, a sect of Atlantean pacifists, relocated and founded the Shayeris colony located in the Hidden Valley. Due to their heritage, they were avid architects and artisans. The Idylists also were practitioners of magic.

After a violent coup, a pregnant Queen Berra was banished to Atlantis. Those who were born with purple eyes were immediately killed as it was a sign that marked the potential for mastery of magic. Garth was born and was mysteriously spared and thrived on his own until a fateful encounter with Aquaman. The pair immediately bonded. Garth took the codename Aqualad and became the sidekick of Aquaman. However, they parted ways when Aqualad yearned to be a hero on his own.

Over time, Aqualad began to resent not being given credit by his mentor on adventures and developed an argumentative relationship with Robin. Years later, they finally both agreed with Speedy's suggestion to short circuit the firing mechanism on Ra's Al Ghul's Chlorocannon. A short time later, Aqualad and the rest of Atlantis were overwhelmed by Faceless Hunter and dozens of Starro clones.


Aqualad and Aquaman.


Garth possesses superhuman strength, allowing him to lift about 8 tons on dry land. He can survive at depths of up to 3,400 feet below surface level. His body contains fluids that adjust to give him buoyancy at varying depths. His body also produces gases that push out against the ocean pressures as heavily as they push in, preventing him from being crushed at great depths. His body is also highly impervious to physical injury. His bloodstream is filled with an amino acid that keeps his body from freezing in the ocean depths, although his own temperature is naturally quite high, allowing his muscles the heat they need to swim at such high speeds. Tempest can swim at speeds of 73.86 knots (or 85 MPH or even 136.79 km/h). Tempest has excellent close range vision and he can see particularly well in low light. He is partially color blind, almost unable to distinguish between black, green, and blue. His sense of hearing is particularly acute, although, because the rate sound travels on dry land is different than beneath the water, his hearing is directly linked to his vision. He also has a powerful sense of smell. Tempest is amphibious and is able to breathe under water by extracting oxygen from the water through tiny pores in his skin.
