It’s time to see which of the two ocean villains will find their way to the top.
Origin: Ocean Master

As the prophecy of the ocean tribe Skarka said, one warrior would take over Atlantis by force. The evil ruler Rorak would believe himself to be that person and would put many of his people into slavery. One of those people was Attuma and many years later when Attuma was ready, he led the slaves to overtake the throne as his own. As revenge he decided he will be the one to fulfill the prophecy.

I am really happy with this battle because we got both equaling fighters with almost equal amount of popularity. Ocean Master is more likely to battle with his magic relic scepter that allows him to control storms, oceans and the deadly, flesh hungry species known as the Trench. Attuma has his three bladed sword which he is well trained with. Although the Marvel villain doesn’t posses any magical powers like Ocean Master, he does posses his super strength. His strength does depend as he can lift 60 tons in water, but when dry it’s 40 tons (strength decreases the longer he dries). Attuma also can travel 60 mph underwater and run on land faster than any human athlete. Ocean Master can swim at fast speeds, but it isn’t really clarified how fast.
If we were to look at stamina Attuma in water can remain in fight for 24 hours until fatigue toxins kick in. Attuma further triumphs in defense with his durability as it helps him withstand falls from great heights, impact forces, energy blasts and exposures to extreme temperatures. Orm’s only line of defense is his armor that is pretty strong, but with Attuma’s blade and strength Ocean Master should worry. Attuma’s agility is much superior than Orm’s since his don’t reach a superhuman level.
But what about leadership, strategy and tactics? Ocean Master with the help of Aquaman created a plan to sink not one, not two, but three major cities (Gotham, Metropolis and Boston). Attuma since a young age showed his significance when he led the enslaved people of the Skarka tribe. Kind of like Tony Stark build a power suit out of nothing in slavery. As for hand to hand combat or sword fighting Orm and Attuma have been trained by the royal guards and military. I can only say the two are equal in such category with only scratching the surface of both of their abilities.
Both villains are great threats, but one can only come on top and that is ladies and gentlemen….Ocean Master. It seems like Attuma had everything under control, but not when I’ll put everything into perspective. So yes, any person with a normal sense would tell you that since Attuma can survive extreme temperatures and energy attacks he could be unharmed by Orm’s lightning, but what if I told you Ocean Master’s lightning is really powerful. His lighting could knock out the likes of Superman, Wonder Woman and Aquaman, and the durability of all those three heroes is greater than Attuma’s. It is also important to note the location of the fight is not a problem for Ocean Master like it is for Attuma. Attuma’s strength, agility, reflexes, stamina and durability all decrease when on land. As you can see those are all important factors for Attuma to win, granted, this fight would most likely take place underwater but Ocean Master’s great strategic skills and magic would come in hand. So, what could happen is Orm could use his control over waters (that can create tsunamis), send Attuma on land or just to the surface and use his lighting attack.Boom! K.O.
