Prime Earth
This article contains information from the Prime Earth continuity, which is currently the primary official continuity of DC Comics.

Orm Marius, aka the Ocean Master, is the half-brother of Aquaman plotting to overthrow Aquaman, who is considered the rightful king of Atlantis. Although he is jailed for an attempt on the "surface world" and escapes, he is conflicted between his family rivalry and the safety of Atlantis, the latter being more important to him than the former.[2]


Character's personality[]

Note: The information displayed under are from official sources although are subjected to change.

  • The Ocean Master had no love for airbreathing humanity; although Orm doesn't simply outright hate human, he prefers not to share the planet with them. Though he has passionate inclinations to attack surface dwellers, he is described as a dutiful Atlantean warrior that follows an adamantine code of conduct and suppresses such inclinations.[3]
  • According to Geoff Johns during his writing of the Throne of Atlantis storyline, his characterization and opinion of Orm is of a non-malicious Atlantean with Atlantean pride and culture, having a bizarre perspective of the surface (a sentiment shared by other Atlanteans), and doesn't hate Arthur though questions his decision to live on the surface world.[4]
