The title of this article is conjectural as this subject has no known canonical name in the DCEU.

The Manta-Sub is a highly advanced prototype stealth submersible that was originally owned by the Navy, but was stolen and captained by Jesse Kane and his son, David.

The Manta-Sub is first seen prior to the hijacking of a Russian nuclear submarine. As it docks on top, the crew board and attack the sub's crew. Following Aquaman's intervention, it would seem that David Kane is the only user of the sub now.[1]

Sometime later, in the North Sea, David Kane sits atop the sub whilst waiting for Orm to show up. When his subordinates arrive, they attempt to give Kane his payment for accomplishing his task; but he refuses, demanding that Aquaman be brought to him (as punishment for killing Kane's father).[1]


  • Armaments: The Manta-Sub is well-equipped for any imaginable conflict scenario, and features a "not-so-silent" gatling gun.
  • Speed: The Manta-Sub is incredibly fast and swift.
  • Stealth: The Manta-Sub features cutting-edge stealth armor to avoid sonar arrays and silent turbine engines.
