Oceanus is a native of Dimension Aqua, when Mera went into self-exile he followed her. He was infatuated with her and used his powers to create a new kingdom for his "love", Atlantis.


Oceanus used a weapon to remove most of Mera's powers. He used his hard-water powers to conquer Atlantis and turn Aquaman and Aqualad into mere servants. Mera agreed to become his Queen and they reigned together for a period.

Mera earned his trust enough to take his weapon in her hands and then turned on him. Oceanus was able to bargain his escape at the cost of never returning to Atlantis. His powers remained intact.
