Hila is the identical twin sister of Mera and a sister-in-law to Aquaman. A born trouble-maker, Hila was the black sheep of the family. Given her reputation, she was easily framed for a crime and sentenced to exile.
Powers & Abilities
Though not overtly visible, Hila possesses a set of gills, which allows her to extract oxygen from the surrounding environment enabling her to breathe underwater. Hila can also breathe in an oxygen/nitrogen atmosphere, but only for limited periods of time. Prolonged exposure in an above-water environment will cause Hila to weaken, and ultimately die.
Hila possesses a limited degree of telepathy, which allows her to communicate with other Atlantean beings.
Hila possesses the ability to increase the density of water within her immediate vicinity for a wide variety of effects. This ability allows her to create "hard water" objects, reshaping volumes of water into simple geometric shapes. Hila commonly uses this power to create water missiles, which she projects towards a selected target.
