V'lana was an insurgent Queen of Dimension Aqua and enemy of Queen Mera.


  • Alien Physiology
    • Amphibian: Though not overtly visible, V'lana possesses a set of gills, which allows her to extract oxygen from the surrounding environment enabling her to breathe underwater. V'lana can also breathe in an oxygen/nitrogen atmosphere, but only for limited periods of time. Prolonged exposure in an above-water environment will cause V'lana to weaken, and ultimately die.
    • Telepathy: V'lana's telepathy operates at a higher degree then the typical for her people. In addition to telepathically communicating with other aquatic peoples, she can also telepathically command at least one other person to do her bidding (she held Mera under her complete control for weeks). Shortly before her death, her telepathy was technologically enhanced so she could communicate with and control sea creatures.
    • Hydrokinesis: V'lana 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. V'lana commonly uses this power to create water missiles, which she projects towards a selected target.
    • Enhanced Durability: In addition to her ability to perpetually exist underwater, V'lana also possesses enhanced density and muscle mass, allowing her to survive at ocean depths that would prove unsafe for normal humans.
    • Enhanced Strength: Because of her powerful physiology her strength far exceeds that of humans allowing her to utilize this strength above water to topple obstacles and opponents.


  • Vulnerability to Lead: Like all residents of Dimension Aqua, exposure to lead will rob V'lana of her hard-water powers.

  • Although this character was originally introduced during DC's Earth-One era of publication, their existence following the events of the 1985–86 limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths remains intact. However, some elements of the character's Pre-Crisis history may have been altered or removed for Post-Crisis New Earth continuity, and should be considered apocryphal.
