Orm, also known as Ocean Master, is the son of the King of Atlantis and Atlanna, and the half-brother of Arthur Curry.


Justice League: War[]

After Darkseid's invasion, Ocean Master rose from the water holding his dead father in his arms, claiming that the surface world will pay.

Justice League: Throne of Atlantis[]

Orm and his team of Atlanteans soldiers attacked and killed the crew of a submarine, Orm and Black Manta meet with Queen Atlanna (Orm's mother) to convince her to declare war on the surface world for the destruction caused by Darkseid's attack. After she rejects their proposition, Orm tells Black Manta to use missiles (that his men stole from a nuclear submarine earlier) loaded into his submarine to attack Atlantis, framing the surface world. Orm and Black Manta then demand that the Queen launch a war for the alleged act of terrorism from the surface.

But queen Atlanta still refuses to strike and tells Manta to arrange a meeting with the Justice League to discuss a peace treaty. After his men fail to kill his half brother, Aquaman, Orm kills Queen Atlanta when she learned of his plan and usurps the throne of Atlantis, once again framing the humans for killing his mother.

As king, Orm dons his armor and becomes the supervillain "Ocean Master". When Aquaman and the Justice League arrive at Atlantis to stop him, Ocean Master defeats and captures them, offering them to the Trench. Ocean Master leads his Atlantean army to wage war with the surface, killing many humans in the process. The Justice League manage to free themselves and return to the surface to stop Ocean Master's army. Throughout the battle, Ocean Master easily defeated the entire Justice League until only his half brother remained.

As Ocean Master was about to kill Aquaman, Cyborg broadcast a recording of Ocean Master confessing to murdering his own mother. After hearing the truth, the Atlanteans cease their attack. Ocean Master tries to explain his actions were for his people, as Aquaman knocks Ocean Master out and becomes the new King of Atlantis. In the post-credits scene, Ocean Master is imprisoned in Belle Reve Prison. As Orm demands to speak to Aquaman, Lex Luthor appears and states that he has a proposition for him.

Character traits[]

Orm is exceptionally cruel, amoral and dishonest, in order to get revenge and declare war upon the surface world, he kills his own people who he ironically desires to protect from the surface world with nuclear missiles. When his treason was exposed, Orm tried to justify it by declaring that he did it for his people; before being given a well-deserved punch to the face by his half-brother, Arthur Curry; proving just how delusional he truly is.

Orm's relations with his closest confidants can also be described as strained, especially with his mother Atlanna, who desires peace and unity with the surface; instead of war. This proved to be a striking point for him, as he ruthlessly kills his own mother when she learns of his treachery and framed surface dwellers for it. After killing Atlanna, he mocks his half-brother, confessing to the killing with no remorse while stating she "mewled for peace" and stating Arthur was lucky to not have to suffer her will as he did.

Although Orm resented surface dwellers, he saw Black Manta as his ally, although Manta secretly detested Orm, describing him as having "mommy issues" and a sense of entitlement, while also revealing an intention to kill him. Orm also displays a childish demeanor, often guided by his emotions; instead of reasoning. Along with his childish and emotional behavior, he also seems to be easily manipulated, as described by Black Manta who claimed coaxing Orm into war was "child's play".

Orm also has an inflated sense of Atlantean superiority, describing his own half-brother as a "bastard" and illegitimate, while imprisoned, he demanded to speak with his brother about this supposed unfair treatment, this characteristic was (seemingly) inherited from his father, who also detested the people of the surface. Despite Orm's cruelty and hateful nature, he did reserve some love for his father, proclaiming that he would avenge his father and sink the surface world.
