View full history
Noble was created by Erik Larsen and Eric Battle. He made his debut in Aquaman #50, where he served as a ally to the Atlanteans and a rival to Aquaman for the affections of Mera.
Noble is the king of the Lurkers, an ancient underwater race who lived beneath the seafloor. They were eventually brought up by the noise cause by the citizens of Poseidonis in their celebration attacking and destroying the dome around the city. He then came to battle Aquaman and his troops with Aquaman and Noble squaring off one on one until Aquaman got the better of him with electricity. He quickly recovered and then saved an Atlantean child from death, which drew the attention of Queen Mera. However as they attempted to speak Aquaman attacked him with a whale and then managed to defeat by bringing him to the surface causing gases to build in his body to the point where he was about to pop however Aquaman spared his life.
Aquaman then gave him a translating device and he became second in command of the Atlantean cities, placing him in charge of defending them. The three then return to Noble's city where Noble and Mera grow closer due to her feeling he reminds her of Aquaman before all the tragedies changed him. However she is shortly captured and at Aquaman's insistence Noble accompanies him to save her despite his great fear of the RockCreatures. He then follows and is faced by the Lava Lord. Aquaman defeats the monster and gains the Lurker's safety while afterwards Mera remains to explore the city with Noble while Aquaman returns home.
Noble takes part in the battle to defend Atlantis during the events of Day of Judgment where he is injured by a blast of hellfire by a escaped demon.He is then forced out of the battle, where Mera has Vulko has several tests run where they learn he secretes pheromones with have been reacting strongly with her alien physiology. Following his injury at the demon's hands he leaves his kingdom to be ruled by his cousin, Virtue as he begins a search for the lost cities of the Lurkers so he can fully unite his people.
