Biography

The offspring of a human mother and a shark god, King Shark has a bleak soul driven solely by his voracious appetites and urges.

In his first appearances he was responsible for the disappearances of several people. This caught the attention of Superboy who stepped in to help get the situation under control. During this adventure Superboy was aided by Inspector Sam Makoa. They managed to apprehend Nanaue, but during the deed Makoa was wounded. While incarcerated King Shark was freed by the Silicon Dragons. They want Nanaue to work for them, however he is not interested and he kills them. After that he heads to his mother's house and eats a piece of her to regain strength. Meanwhile Superboy arrives and manages to stop him again.

Some time after the incident Superboy and Makoa were assigned to the Suicide Squad to destroy the Silicon Dragons.They recruited King Shark to aid them. Knowing he wouldn't help them voluntarily they strapped an explosive belt to his waist. The belt would explode if anything were to happen to Inspector Makoa. During the mission Shark was mainly seen killing numerous henchmen. During the events his belt exploded, but Nanaue's durability allowed him to survive the blast.

He was recruited by Bane and Jeannette to be part of a new incarnation of the Secret Six. He joined the new team alongside Giganta, Dwarfstar and Lady Vic. They would soon be drafted into service by Spy Smasher for a mission to Skartaris with the intent of conquering the strange land. This brought the team into conflict with the other Secret Six team, who had been coerced by Amanda Waller into stopping them. During the fighting, King Shark had his left eye pulled out by Ragdoll.

When the situation was resolved, Waller offered a deal to the Secret Six that involved doing jobs for her when she had need. However, she only had use of one Secret Six team. After the fun in Skartaris, King Shark chose to stick around to be a part of this one Secret Six team.
