Captain Murk was a captain of the Men-of-War, the royal guard of Atlantis. He served under King Orm Marius, and was one of his most loyal supporters.

He was part of the ambush of Arthur Curry, Mera, and Nuidis Vulko when they "intruded" on Atlantis, and Murk was able to subdue and knock out Arthur before delivering him to Orm.

Later, Orm ordered Murk and a small detail of Men-of-War to assist Black Manta in Sicily as he attempted to kill Arthur and Mera on their quest to find the Trident of Atlan. They were unsuccessful, with Mera severing Murk's left hand and disabling his suit, forcing him to dunk his head in a toilet bowl as he could not breathe above water.


Subduing the intruder[]

Having learned that Arthur had entered the Kingdom of Atlantis illegally, Murk, along with border control and a few Men-of-War, ambushed Arthur, Mera, and Nuidis Vulko. Although Mera and Vulko escaped the scene without anyone else knowing they were ever there, Murk was able to subdue and knock out the resisting Arthur before delivering him to Orm.[1]

Attack on Sicily[]

Orm ordered Murk and a small detail of Men-of-War to assist Black Manta with killing Arthur and Mera in Sicily, but failed. In the process, Mera sliced off Murk's left hand with one of his men's Atlantean energy swords, but his suit automatically sealed the wound. Murk pursued Mera across several rooftops, but she finally disabled him by manipulating his suit's water supply into shattering his helmet, forcing him to dunk his head into a toilet bowl (the nearest available body of water) to keep from suffocating.[1]


Murk is extremely loyal to Orm.

Powers and Abilities[]

    • Superhuman durability: Murk is incredibly durable, as he is able to withstand immense underwater pressures.
    • Superhuman speed: While underwater, Murk can swim at supersonic speeds.

Other equipment[]

  • Atlantean skinsuit: Murk wears a violet suit, with a texture of scales, like his usual attire while at Atlantis.
  • Atlantean armor: As a member of the Men-of-War, he utilized the armor for durability in combat. His elite commando armor, had special gauntlets are capable of sucking in water and using it to charge a hydro pulse, which is powerful enough to even knock out Aquaman if the punch lands.
