    Yeah, that's because Neptune Perkins was "the human porpoise" instead of an actual amphibian. Honestly, he should've been left (or turned into) an amphibious character, at least that way his big power wouldn't be...swimming.

    I wonder if they did that on porpoise.

    Tsunami




    "I was drowning in a wave of ecstacy- Tsu-Tsu-Tsu-nami!
    Just when you think the worst has passed, she rises up to destroy me!
    Just when you think it's safe to sail again,
    Here she rises up again!
    I was drowning in a wave of ecstacy- Tsu-Tsu-Tsu-nami!"


    TSUNAMI (Miya Shimada)

    Prejudice (Nisei- American-Born Japanese)- Tsunami is of Japanese heritage, making her persona-non-grata in 1940s WWII America.

    Total: Abilities: 54 / Skills: 24--12 / Advantages: 5 / Powers: 31 / Defenses: 13 (115)

    -Tsunami seems a lot like the second Golden Girl, another Roy Thomas Retcon Heroine. Golden Girl II was a Japanese-American girl who fought for the allies in the 1978 Invaders title, and now Tsunami debuts in the late '80s All-Star Squadron. However, Tsunami's suffering under the racial prejudice of the time leads her to the Imperial Japanese government. However, she becomes disgusted by the dishonorable, brutal tactics of her comrades-in-arms, and changes sides back to America. She & Perkins eventually divorced, partly due to the fact that her daughter Debbie (Aquaman ally Deep Blue) was fathered by another man- it was believed to be Aquaman's father Atlan at first, but turned out to be a villain named Rhombus.

    Re: Jab's Builds!

    For her WW2 era, wouldn't it be thematic to give Tsunami the "Prejudice: Japanese" complication as well? Sandy didn't trust her because of her heritage, she got sent to a concentration...excuse me internment camp because of it and more than once in YAS there were hostilities with civilians over her race.

    It's not a big deal in modern times, but back in the 40's it was an issue.

    Good idea- I'll add it. I also added in Immunity (Aging) because... well, that bottom pic is from about sixty years later in our time AND theirs!
