One of the three Elder Gods (sons of Cronus), Poseidon was the god of the sea. He was one of the most powerful gods in Olympus, second only to his brother Zeus. He lived in a beautiful palace under the sea and caused earthquakes when he was in a rage.
Poseidon first appears in Wonder Woman #5, completely redesigned to look like a huge sea creature rather than a merman.
