The character first appeared in Aquaman #35 (September 1967) and is the archenemy of the superhero Aquaman. Black Manta had no definitive origin story until #6 of the 1993 Aquaman series. In this origin, the boy who would become Black Manta grew up in Baltimore, Maryland, and loved to play by the Chesapeake Bay. Throughout his youth he was kidnapped and forced to work on a ship for an unspecified amount of time, where he was physically abused by his captors. At one point, he saw Aquaman with his dolphin friends and tried to signal him for help but was not seen. Finally, he was forced to defend himself, killing one of his tormentors on the ship with a knife. Hating the emotionless sea and Aquaman, whom he saw as its representative, the boy was determined to become its master

Overall, in conclusion this Aquaman movie is promising and has the potential to be a brillilant movie, for the family it has the cast and characters that are fit to play all the roles and the Atlantis, fictional story and DC Comics references are amazing and true to the source material.
