HistoryEdit

Tula was the second Aquagirl, a girlfriend of Garth and loyal to Atlantis.

Origin

Tula lost her parents soon after her birth. She was found and adopted by one of the royal families of Atlantis. For most of her youth, she remained secluded in the royal home, where she was taught in the Atlanteans ways and traditions.[1] At a young age, she met Garth, the king's ward, and though she liked him, he did not see much in her. Much later, she ventured out of the palace, and met up with Garth, now Aqualad. The teenagers fell in love, and both in need for appreciation, they left the kingdom looking for adventure. With the fun over, they returned home.[2] Aquagirl left most adventuring to the boys, only rarely accompanying them. She usually baby-sat Aquababy.

Adventures

Tula would sometimes help Aqualad with missions during his time with the Teen Titans; she also became an honorary member.[3] When Aquaman left his throne to search for his then-missing wife Mera, Tula played an important role in Atlantis. Atlantis was ruled by Narkran in Aquaman's absence, and he ruled Atlantis as a dictatorship. His reign fell only when Tula led a rebellion against him with Mupo.[4]

Tula returned to Atlantis to live with Garth. She joined Garth aided the Titans in bringing down the H.I.V.E. once and for all.[5]

Death

During the Crisis on Infinite Earths, Tula helped Garth fight Shark and Black Manta in Hudson Bay. From the surface, Chemo polluted the water with toxic waste. Tula was caught by the poison and died.[6]

A statue of Tula was built in the "Hall of Fallen Titans" at Titans Tower, alongside the original Hawk and Dove, Kole, and others.

Blackest Night

Aquagirl was revived along with many other Atlanteans. With Aquaman and Dolphin, she ambushed Mera and Tempest at the old lighthouse. Tula succeeded in killing Garth, but Mera got away.[7] She followed the newly-converted Garth in an assault on Titans Tower with several other fallen Titans, but she was destroyed by the white light of Dove.[8]

NotesEdit

  • 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.
