In 1985, Atlanna washed up on the shore of Amnesty Bay during Hurricane Gloria, wounded and unconscious. Thomas Curry carried her to the Lighthouse and nursed her back to health, and they eventually developed a relationship that resulted in the birth of Arthur Curry.
However, a few years later, some Atlantean soldiers ordered her to return to Atlantis at once to face judgment for birthing a half breed child. She engaged in a fight against the Men and Wear and took them out, but knew she had to return to Atlantis. Atlanna bade farewell to Thomas and Arthur before promising that she would return one day.
In 2018, as Arthur and his father were driving home, a tidal wave sent by Orm Marius and the Atlanteans hit Amnesty Bay, submerging a large portion of it and drowning Thomas, although he was resurrected by Mera. By the morning, Amnesty Bay was damaged by the tidal wave, with marine trash and several warships floating in the shallow waters.
Behind the scenes
- In DC Comics, Amnesty Bay was originally set in Maine. However, recent comics including The New 52 have placed the town in Massachusetts. The aquarium Arthur Curry visits with his school is also in Massachusetts.
