Arthur Curry is the Aquaman, the son of Queen Atlanna of Atlantis and the lighthousekeeper Tom Curry. As the first-born son, he has a claim on the throne, though he did not claim it. The throne passed to his half-brother Orm Marius, son of Atlanna's rightful husband Orvax. Knowledge of Arthur's existence came to Atlantis, where he was considered a half-breed and a bastard.

He is a founding member of the Justice League, a team of super-humans who help protect the world from evil.
