Lori Lemaris hails from the Atlantean city of Tritonis, a sect of undersea humans whom adapted to have fish like tails. They are the source for all myths about mermaids. When Lori was injured she was healed by a young physician Ronal, who used magic to heal her.[1] Eventually, they married, but his dabbling with dark magic eventually drove him mad. Ronal attacked the other merfolk with his form-altering power, including Lori. She sought out assistance from Superman, who ultimately stopped Ronal and his mutated sea creatures. When Superman destroyed Ronal's staff, the wizard was apparently turned to stone.[2]




  • Asphyxiation: Atlanteans can only exist outside of water for a limited period of time or else they will dehydrate, asphyxiate and ultimately die.

  • Following the events of Infinite Crisis and the creation of New Earth, this incarnation of Lori Lemaris was brought into existence.
