Aquaman Born to Princess Atlanna of Posidenous and the exiled wizard Atlan, Prince Kren was cast out at birth by the cruel and superstitious populace of Posidenous due to his blonde hair. With the help of her advisor Vulko, Atlanna made it to the surface, where she was found and rescued by a young lighthouse keeper named Tom Curry, who she later married. Renaming his stepson Arthur, Tom raised Arthur as his own, and after Atlanna's death, trained Rou to use his powers to help others and protect the oceans from evil. As an adult, Arthur became Aquaman, using his orange and dark green prison suit from when he found Posidenous and was imprisoned, and has since reclaimed the throne that is rightfully his.
