"The crown jewel. Still experimental."
Orm to David Kane[src]

Black Manta's hydro-plasma rifle is one of next-generation Atlantean weaponry given to David Kane by Orm.[1]

History[]

As the treacherous Atlantean king sought to enlist the aide of the pirate whom he'd contacted in order to secure a surface based vessel, Orm would present David with a colorful arsenal of next-generation Atlantean weaponry as a method of enacting revenge for the death of his father. Among the weaponry would be the powerful hydro-pulse rifle, which he would later disassemble and remake into a helmet.[1]

Using his expertise in engineering, Black Manta would study the innermost workings of the rifle. How it worked, power source, the firing mechanism; all of which he would rework into a wearable piece of diving equipment that also functioned as a powerful plasma cannon. One which Manta tested to his hearts content while pursuing Arthur in Venice, Italy, finding it able to badly sear and burn the Aquaman despite his incredible resilience.[1]
