Jaffar was a member of Darkseid's elite aquatic terrorist cell Deep Six. He fought against Darkseid's enemies the New Gods, as well as Earth's maritime guardian Aquaman. Once after using bio-transmutation powers to disfigure Dolphin, Aquaman threatened to stab Jaffar unless he turned her back to normal. Jaffar relented and Aquaman agreed to spare his life. Aquaman's son Koryak however, made no such promise and blasted a hole through Jaffar's abdomen with a hard-water column. This attack seemingly killed Jaffar, but he was resurrected through his own spawn. Though he has died several times during his career, Jaffar was killed once again when the Infinity Man was scouring the Earth, killing off agents of Darkseid. He channeled his power through a corrupt Mary Marvel and killed Slig with a lightning bolt.



  • Although this character was originally introduced during DC's Earth-One era of publication, their existence following the events of the 1985–86 limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths remains intact. However, some elements of the character's Pre-Crisis history may have been altered or removed for Post-Crisis New Earth continuity, and should be considered apocryphal.
