MEDICINE - ORGAN IMPLANTS:
Black Manta has designed and had performed upon many of his henchmen an intricate series of gill implantations, enabling them to survive indefinitely beneath the sea, though Black Manta himself has not yet undergone the still experimental process.

Contacts:
The Legion of Doom * Manta's own band of undersea pirates.
Background:
A professional criminal all his adult life, Black Manta has spent years plundering the ocean floor of its valuable contents. In this time, he has assembled a considerable number of henchmen, as well as bioengineering mutants he calls his Manta-Men.

Little is known of the man beneath the Manta costume, save that, like most of his henchmen, he is black. "Not that racism is my motive," says Manta, "but since blacks have been suppressed for so long on the surface, they fight well for a chance to be masters below."

Black Manta has attempted several times to create his own undersea kingdom, but each attempt has been thwarted by the King of the Seven Seas, Aquaman. In the course of one of these conflicts, Black Manta was directly responsible for the death of Aquaman's son, Arthur Curry, Jr., thus becoming one of the Sea King's greatest foes.
