Nanaue is the offspring of the Hawaiian shark deity Kamo. After Kamo was captured on a tropical island by Amanda Waller, she also took one of his offspring with her before destroying the island, assuming that the child would be easier to control than the father. The child was Nanaue, who was raised by Waller in laboratory conditions, and grew at an extremely fast rate.
Nanaue at some point made it to Atlantis, where he hopes to become the next big crime boss.
- Nanaue was created by Karl Kesel, first appearing in Superboy (Volume 4) #0. However, in the Prime Earth continuity Nanaue first appeared as part of the New 52 DC Universe in Suicide Squad (Volume 4) #1 by Adam Glass and Federico Dallocchio.
