Fictional character biography
Triton is member of the
Inhumansroyal family, son of Mander and Azur, brother to Karnak, and cousin to Gorgon, Black Bolt, Maximus, Medusa, and Crystal. Triton was exposed to the Terrigen Mist as an infant. The mists altered his body, turning his skin green and giving him the ability to breathe underwater, as well as surviving the cold temperatures and incredible pressures of the deep. An unfortunate side effect was the loss of the ability to survive in a non-aquatic environment. As a result, he lived in a specifically designed area of the Inhuman's city-stateof Attilan, requiring a special breathing apparatus to leave the water. The apparatus, cumbersome at first, was eventually reduced in size by fellow Inhuman, Maximus the Mad. Triton's mutation after Terrigenesis was so severe that his parents disallowed his brother Karnak from going through it.
Triton maintains a friendship with
Namor the Sub-Mariner, and has occasionally been involved in stories with Marvel's other ocean-dwelling characters. He had pivotal roles in major crossover stories such as The Kree-Skrull Warand Atlantis Attacks.
Triton has expressed discontent to Black Panther and Storm when they visit Attilan's current moon location. He reveals that several underground chambers have been flooded for his benefit, but it is just not the same.
In the alternate future of "
Earth X" Triton has undergone a change, becoming even more fish-like. He assists the Royal family in an investigation of just what has happened to Earth.
Triton and his Inhuman allies revere
Galactusand his heralds in this alternate universe.
Later, in "Heroes Reborn" #3, Triton is seen as one of the many heroes onboard the well-outfitted, shrinking spaceship belonging to
Doctor Doom. He, along with many other heroes and Inhumans, must return to the main Marvel universe or all those within the alternate one will be endangered. Despite Doom's lust for power endangering the mission, everyone who has to return safely does.
An ultimate version of Triton appeared, along with the other Inhumans, in "Ultimate Fantastic Four Annual" #1. The Inhumans first encounter the FF over the problem of Crystal, who has run away from home.
Hanna-Barberawas unable to use the Sub-Marinercharacter for their Fantastic Four series, a character named Triton was used in his place.
