King of Atlantis centuries ago. Attempted to conquer the surface world during his reign. Father of Kraken, Atlan, and Hamound. Grandfather of Aquaman. After seeing Atlan's proof of human life on the surface, the great Honsu decides to attack before the surface-dwellers grow strong enough to pose a threat. And attack he does. And slaughter. And destroy. Until he reaches Egypt, where the threat is the sun, and the lack of water is the downfall. His son Haumond is left behind in the retreat and Honsu believes him to be dead. Due to the "death" of his son, Honsu decides to avoid dry Egypt and tackle Greece. Honsu's soldiers are tired, they've fought too long and too hard. So Honsu tells the Greeks that if they can defeat his greatest warrior, his son Kraken, in battle, he will go back to the water and never bother them again. A brave Greek warrior steps into the fight and kills Kraken after a long battle. Then, Honsu realises that Haumond is the Greek warrior. Eventually, he lefts Greece and returns to the oceans with the atlanteans.
