Garn Daanuth is the eldest twin son of two Atlantean gods and brother to Arion. A powerful sorcerer with mastery of the dark arts, he is also an agent for the Lords of Chaos who tried to destroy his home, Atlantis.

Son of adversarial Atlantean mages Calculha and Majistra, Garn Daanuth was a master of dark magics whose skin was drained of color when he tried to help his mother destroy Atlantis many millennia ago. Thwarted by his brother Arion, Garn blamed him for Majistra's demise, sparking a family feud lasting for over 100,000 years of magical clashes between the siblings.

Garn claimed to have emerged from suspended animation in modern times, but seemingly died when the Justice League of America stopped him from raising Atlantis.

    • Power Absorption: Like Arion, Garn's mystic abilities is stem from pulling a source of power to energize his own spells-castingzz such as using mystic charms.[5]



  • Dependency: Like other fellow Atlantean gods, his power is dependent on the state of Darkworld and is powerless save for his immortality when Darkworld disappeared. Furthermore, his use in Atlantean white magic, like his brother, shares the same weakness in requiring a solar source to use.[12]
