The Topo wiki last edited by Darkside_of_the_Sun on 09/30/13 03:01PM View full history

Origin

While octopuses are generally pretty smart, Topo has proven to be quite exceptional. Born near the undersea continent of Atlantis, he has assisted Aquaman in many adventures and appeared assisting other heroes as well. He was supposedly taught archery by Green Arrow, understands basic construction, is a trapeze artist, and knows how to play (at least) 5 different musical instruments simultaneously. His touch is sensitive enough to know when a person is lying.

Creation

Topo was created by Ramona Fradon and first appeared in Adventure Comics #229 in October 1956.

Character Evolution

After Infinite Crisis, Topo appeared as a humanoid/octopoid character in Aquaman: Sword of Atlantis. His name was a tribute to the original Topo. They are not the same character.

Powers & Abilities

Topo has demonstrated some telepathic abilities himself; being able to communicate with other sea creatures and even to receive thoughts from other people, such as Green Arrow while Aquaman is not present. As a aquatic sea life, Topo is extremely talented, displaying his remarkable intelligence and problem solving skills. He is shown to have been trained in archery and can play multiple musical instrumentals simultaneously.

Other Media

Young Justice

Topo appears in the Young Justice Animated Series episode "Downtime" which is a screenplay revolving around Aquaman: Sword of Atlantis.
