The DC COMICS - THE NEW 52 look of Aquaman's arch nemesis, Black Manta, perfectly captured with this action figure based on the designs of comics superstar Ivan Reis.
Dressed in his sleek black wetsuit, Black Manta is outfitted with silver pack and saucer-shaped helmet, and is equipped with a silver two-pronged blaster. Though Black Manta possesses no superhuman powers, his costume, designed to adapt to any aquatic environment, provides him with a breathing apparatus/life support system, enhanced strength and durability, and a variety on onboard weapons including a devastating ocular blast. Black Manta is among the handful of villains in the Legion of Doom. The New 52 version of Black Manta is thoroughly fixated on the destruction of Aquaman, in order to avenge his father’s death. An elite team of Atlanteans called the Others are assembled by Aquaman to capture Black Manta, an endeavor which results in the death of one of the teammates. Black Manta is captured and incarcerated, and is visited in his cell by Amanda Waller who offers to recruit him as a member of the Suicide Squad.
