The creature known as the Trench Queen, was the den-mother and supreme ruler of the Trench, an animalistic former kingdom of Atlantis. When the Trench started to die out due to inbreeding and other problems, she sent the Trench led by the Trench King to find more food. This led to Aquaman attacking the den in order to save the people they captured. She was killed when Aquaman threw his trident at a volcanic fissure under her during a chase, which exploded, immediately killing her.[1]


  • Trench Physiology: Like their sibling species, the Trench adapted to life on the ocean floor much like all the other Atlantean cultures. Hence their monstrous appearance which gives them the visage of vicious angler fish.
  • Toxikinesis: The Trench have the ability to spit a chemical from their mouth that can cause paralysis.[1]
  • Bioluminescence: The Trench possess a natural ability to generate a personal light source from their own bodies.
  • Razor-Sharp Teeth: The teeth of the Trench are powerful enough to bite through flesh and bone.
  • Needle Point Nails: The Trench have incredibly sharp talons capable of cutting and rending tempred steel with ease. Those of the Trench leader were potent enough to rend even Arthur Curry's dense skin.[1]
