Prisoner of War was created by Geoff Johns and Ivan Reis.
Powers & Abilities
Prisoner seems to have the ability to channel the skills of soldiers who have died around him. Not only does he share their skills but apparently he shares their memories and emotions. It is still unknown if he is acting as a conduit for these ghosts, as the family of one of his ghosts were able to recognize the deceased soldier in place of the Prisoner. After the events of Aquaman #13, Prisoner was able to make peace with his ghosts as he gives closure to their families.
In Aquman #20, it was revealed that the Prisoner also had the ability to summon a "Ghost Patrol" to aid him. These ghosts are those of the soldiers he fought with in the past.
It is still not known how he came upon his powers or who is eligible to become part of his set of ghosts.
Weaponry & Equipment
The Manacles are one of the seven Atlantean relics crafted by the first king of Atlantis. It is potentially indestructible, like all the other relics, and it has the ability to create a force field large enough to shield a small town. The exact limits of the size of the force field are yet to be revealed but Prisoner has mentioned that he cannot extend his field beyond the small town (Aquaman #8). The field is also strong enough to allow them to survive a cave in.
