With the Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom trailer out, it felt like the right time to revisit everyone’s favorite underwater threat, Black Manta, The Scourge of Atlantis! This was our very first Villain episode, and we thoroughly enjoyed crafting our backstory for Mr. Manta. Today, we cover the many appearances of the villain and chat about our first encounters with the sea-faring terrorist.

Dan & I craft a tragic origin for our version of the UFO head. We created one heavy backstory for the guy. Listen and enjoy as we nerd out and make our own fleshed-out Black Manta!
Why does Black Manta hate Aquaman?
After listening to this episode, do you crave more information on the devil beneath the waves? Check out our write-up and find out who is Black Manta.
The Injustice of Blank Manta
Black Manta steps out of the shadows and joins the fight in Injustice 2 this September! Originally a stage hazard in the Atlantis arena, The underwater terrorist is now stepping up as a playable character. Black Manta looks like a formidable addition to the Injustice roster, fully equipped with laser eyes, his trident, and rocket launchers.
I am terrible at this game, and I choose to believe I haven’t found the right character. Supergirl or Red Hood were considered for the coveted spot as my main characters. I can’t wrap my mind around either of their move sets. Will Mr. Manta be that guy? The outlook is doubtful. My fingers do not cooperate.
