Hila is the sister of Mera and a Xebelian assassin.


  • Amphibian: Though not overtly visible, Hila possesses a set of gills, which allows her to extract oxygen from the surrounding environment enabling her to breathe underwater. Hila can also breathe in an oxygen/nitrogen atmosphere, but only for limited periods of time. Prolonged exposure in an above-water environment will cause Hila to weaken, and ultimately die.
  • Telepathy: Hila possesses a limited degree of telepathy, which allows her to communicate with other Atlantean beings.
  • Hydrokinesis: Hila possesses the ability to increase the density of water within her immediate vicinity for a wide variety of effects. This ability allows her to create "hard water" objects, reshaping volumes of water into simple geometric shapes. Hila commonly uses this power to create water missiles, which she projects towards a selected target.

  • Hila is the younger twin, as Mera directs Hila as her younger sister to Arthur. [1]
