Biography

New Earth

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.

Prime Earth

King Shark was part of DC's New 52 relaunch. He appears Suicide Squad alongside Harley Quinn, El Diablo, Deadshot, Black Spider, and Sportsmaster.

His appearance now resembles a humanoid Hammerhead shark.

King Shark began to building a new criminal empire in the depths of the sunken city. Aquaman was usurped by an xenophobic extremist named Corum Rath who ruled the city with an iron fist. Rath activated a magical device known as the Crown of Thorns which formed a magical barrier around Atlantis so no-one could enter or leave. Mera, spent weeks using her hydrokinesis in an attempt to rip down the Crown of Thorns. Eventually she found a way to get through the barrier, however the magic used to do so made her loose the ability to breathe under water. Some of King Shark's minions discovered her in this state and brought her to King Shark who put her in an oxygen tank. Nanaue didn't do this out of any compassion, rather, he wanted to use her as a bargaining chip.

Nanaue pondered Arthur's offer more after the Aquaman began his assault on the Crown. He soon changed his mind and led his forces assist the rebellion. With the combined might of the rebellion and the gangs of the Ninth behind him, Aquaman was able to use his trident to bring down the Crown of Thorns.
