Origin

Profoundly strong, but limited in intelligence, the Atlantian known as Orka was a soldier in the battalion lead by Warlord Krang. When Krang attempted to wrest power from Atlantis' monarch Prince Namor, he was defeated and sent into exile. Choosing this commander over his sovereign, Orka joined Krang in exile, teaming with the human scientist Dr. Lemuel Dorcas; who preformed a series of experiments upon Orka giving him even greater power as Killer Whale.
