Ok am I missing something here ? On Aqualad's (Kaldur'ahm) page it said he is human ? Whisky Tango Foxtrot ! Correct me if i'm wrong but I don't think humans can breath under water and have super strangth and other stuff ?

Alright I did some more reserch on Aqualad and his father Black Manta was a human. So that means his mother has to be a Atlantean. So that would make Aqualad a hybrid. If his mother is a human to then Aqualad would be a mutant.

@Kid_Omega_Prime: Atlantean/human hybrid isn't an origin option at the moment......

@ReVamp: Do you know who his mother was, i stopped reading before that was revealed, I was guessing that it was Mera's evil sister

I'm pretty sure it wasn't the sister, but I'm not sure if it was revealed who the mother was.

@BlackArmor: Yes, the beginning was better than the end.

The problem with the ending is that Johns and Tomasi tried to tie everything together and it felt forced, the threat came out of nowhere and the resolution was a deus ex machina without any connection to previous developments.

As of Aqualad, his mother was not Atlantean, she came from Xebel, another underwater city, like Mera.

Edit, was the person from Xebel Siren or someone else?

She was, and she also was Mera's "evil twin sister". However, I doubt she was Aqualad's mother but it was not very clear and I do not have my comics here with me.

Thanks again, I hope Siren is his mother because unless something happened to her in part 2 I think that would be the most interesting option

Ok so if Aquqlad's mother came from Xebel. Then Aqualad would be a Human Alien Hybrid.

I dug up some more info on Aqualad. Recently Siren, Mera's sister, has escaped with several Xebel soldiers, with an intention to kill Aquaman. She reveals Mera had originally been sent to kill Arthur, but failed in her job. It is also revealed they did experiments on a boy named Jackson Hyde, who is the son of Black Manta, Aquaman's arch-rival, and Jackson's mother. This meant that Black Manta killing Aquaman's and Mera's son was not just because of Mera, like Mera had blamed Arthur.His mother died in the experiments but Jackson survived and gained powers from it. He has joined Aquaman as Aqualad. Siren and the Xebel soldiers have taken their fight to the surface, attacking a sunny beach full of people, claiming that everything on land belonged to them because life started in the oceans. Aquaman and Aqualad try to fight the large amount of soldiers attacking and save the "land-dwellers" from the Xebel soldiers.
