Atlantis! The name is know to all.  And during its golden age there was no greater hero than Arion.  He is no mere mortal.  He is the result of the union of two Alantean gods over half a million years ago.  Arion himself was raised by his father, Calculhah, and his wicked brother was raised by there mother.   When the two evil ones tried to attack Atlantis Arion sacrificed his life to save it.  Arion lived for almost 500,000 years in a state of intangibility.

About 45,000 years ago, Arion regained a physical form to serve as the protector of Atlantis.  The continent of Atlantis suffered its first great fracturing when Arion fought off an assault by alien invaders. A bolt of light shattered the City of the Golden Gate and caused most of the continental shelf to slip into the ocean. Atlantis final sinking didn’t happen till tens of thousands of years later. As an immortal Arion wandered the Earth for the next 45,000 years, with his powers waxing and waning because of changes in the darkworld.  Arion died while helping the Justice Society of America fight the dark sorcerer Mordru.  Then an impostor named Bill Knightley from Ohio(of Course he would be from Ohio), took up Arion’s identity, helping the Shadowpact fight the Spectre.

Arion special powers and ability were Immortality, and vast magical abilities drawn from the extra-dimensional Darkworld; which gave command over magic and clairvoyance. Before the impostor took over, Arion was all about helping people.  He saw a vision once and tried to convince superman not a fight a supervillian because he foresaw the it could end the world, but it turned out that he could only see what might happen.

    I rather liked the Arion stories back in the day. But I loved anything to do with Atlantis then too. I didn’t even mind when they made Power Girl an Atlantean for a while.

      I’m a sucker for a good aqua story. I also used to read Namor from Marvel, but I’m an aquaman fan till the end!
