Jackson Hyde may have been taught by Aquaman himself, but the looming threat of his father, Black Manta, is never far from his mind.
A natural born leader and level-headed team player, Kaldur'ahm is an Atlantean/human hybrid who possesses the power to control and form water into solid constructs. Much like his mentor Aquaman, Kaldur was raised not knowing who his real parents were—something that, it turns out, may have been for the better, considering his biological father is Black Manta, Arthur’s sworn enemy.
Pulled between not only the worlds of land and sea, but between those of good and evil itself, Kaldur, or Jackson Hyde as he's known by his adoptive human parents, has striven to make sure his legacy does not define him. And, though that sometimes pushes him to the very brink of what he believes himself to be capable of, he has proven to be a true superhero time and time again. One who’s more than worthy of carrying the legacy—if not the crown—of Altantis’ mighty king.
