Born in Hawaii, '''Nanaue''' is a humanoid shark. His father is "The King of All Sharks"—also known as the Shark God. Other characters, such as special agent Sam Makoa, have dismissed this as superstition and referred to Nanaue as a "savage mutation" with no mystical nature. Given the reality of magic within the DC Universe, either origin is equally possible. It has also been implied he was one of the "Wild Men", evolved animals based on those in ''Kamandi: The Last Boy on Earth''. The now-ended ''Aquaman: Sword of Atlantis'' series, however, seems to have put an end to the controversy by firmly establishing him as the Shark God's son.

King Shark was responsible for a number of missing persons several years before Superboy arrived in Hawaii. Sam Makoa was responsible for bringing him in and bore the scars to prove it. King Shark is freed by the Silicon Dragons who plan on hiring him.<sup>[1]</sup> Nanaue is not interested and kills his liberators before heading to his mother's house. His mother allows him to bite her arm off to feed. Superboy managed to take him down with his heat vision. When Superboy and Makoa were assigned to the Suicide Squad to destroy the Silicon Dragons, King Shark was forced to help. An explosive belt was strapped to his waist, set to detonate if anything happened to Makoa. Other members of the Squad included Knockout and Squad veterans Deadshot and Captain Boomerang.

* King Shark appears in ''Batman: Assault on Arkham'', voiced by John DiMaggio. He appears as a member of the Suicide Squad. King Shark first appearing in a motel with strung up corpses bathing in a tub of blood and displays human-eating tendencies. He is somehow captured in a raid and forced into the Suicide Squad. In their first meeting, he attempts to eat Killer Frost, but they form a friendship during their assignment. King Shark also hates heights as seen in one scene. He is later killed by Amanda Waller after a failed attempt by Riddler to deactivate a bomb that was surgically implanted in the back of his neck as a failsafe in the event that they abandon the mission (due to Riddler having not considered his thicker skin).
