View full history
Murk took Tula to the Old City to find Swatt in order to enlist him in their mission to free Orm from the surface world because Swatt, who is unable to breathe underwater, spends a lot of time on the surface and knows his way around.
Swatt was created by Aquaman writer Geoff Johns and artist Paul Pelletier. He made his debut in Aquaman #19 (Although he can been seen in Aquaman #18 in a panel without dialogue).
Powers & Abilities
Swatt is an Atlantean and possesses their typical superhuman abilities. However (for reasons unknown so far) he is able to generate electricity but cannot breath underwater (although he can seemingly survive the extreme temperatures and pressure).
Swatt has shown he is strong enough to casually rip open a steel cargo container.
He can function normally underwater and is able to withstand the high pressures and extreme temperatures of the deep, but cannot breath on his own.
Swatt has shown the ability to control and discharge electricity, an ability that no other Atlantean has displayed.
Swatt is a trained Atlantean warrior, seen participating on the Atlantean missions to reclaim their stolen tech. He has also taken on Murk and shown that he is extremely agile (similar to the members of the Drift).
Surface World Knowledge
Swatt is one of the very few (if any outside Aquaman and Vulko) Atlanteans to have explored the surface world. He has collected items from the surface and shows an understanding of surface technology, landscape and rules.
Weaponry & Equipment
Unique Underwater Suit
Swatt wears a specialized unique suit that allows him to breath underwater, even at the depths of Atlantis.
