Aquon was genetically engineered by Captain Omen
as a half-fish, half-man powerhouse to destroy the Hulk
. Captain Omen traveled under the oceans with his massive submarine called the Infra-World and it housed numerous crew members that wanted to reach the surface world. They formed a rebellion group called the Children of the New Order and befriended the Hulk. Aquon came into conflict with the Hulk when he led the rebellion against Captain Omen inside his submarine. The battle was fierce and they cracked the hull during the fight. Water started to pour inside the vessel and Captain Omen was forced to seal the hull with a special foam. Aquon and the Hulk fought underwater when Captain Omen activated a powerful suction drain to expel the water from the flooded submarine. Aquon and the Hulk were caught in the whirlpool but the gamma giant remained inside the vessel while Aquon was swept into the ocean depths. Whether Aquon survived is unclear and his current whereabouts are unknown.
Aquon was created by Steve Englehart
and Herb Trimpe
in 1973 and first appeared in The Incredible Hulk
