Atlanteans were the residents of the underwater nation Atlantis.


Atlanteans, due to their environment, have acquired the ability to breath underwater. Their conditioning renders them physically stronger than a typical human, with features such as "skin tougher than a rhino's". Aquaman and his daughter Mareena, can communicate with aquatic life, via telepathy; it is unknown whether or not other Atlanteans possess this ability, as well, or if it is unique to the royal family alone.

Atlanteans could be harmed if the water they were in reached high temperatures, the first symptom being fainting.
