Doctor Deering was an enemy of Aquaman.


Doctor Deering was a scientist working on a method allowing normal humans to breath underwater, the method worked on himself. The downside being unable to live on the surface. He snapped and turned to crime.

Deering could not accept the idea of living alone under the sea. He vowed to make the oceans fit for human habitation. His method involved using machinery to steal skyscrapers and building himself an undersea metropolis. He planned to populate with abducted ship crews, properly mutated by his machinery.

When his mutation proved temporary, Deering seemed to regain his sanity. Aquaman and Aqualad tried to help him deal with the effects of his previous rampage
