Black Manta is one of Aquaman's greatest villains. His lethal high-tech suit allows him to survive underwater and adapt to any number of situations with an arsenal of destructive weaponry. The motivation for his villainy is a deep-seated hatred for the sea due to strong emotional reasons, and a personal vendetta against Aquaman. He has also been a member of O.G.R.E., the Injustice League, the Secret Society of Super-Villains, the Sinestro Corps and the Suicide Squad. Black Manta was created by Bob Haney and Nick Cardy, first appearing in Aquaman #35. (1967)
