Drilt lived his early days in the underwater city of Atlantis, but when he turned 18 his skin started to change colour and took on a white hue. It was then discovered that he was half human, and he was exiled as a result. Drilt had no choice but to leave his world behind, so decided to learn what he could about his human lineage.

As he reached the surface, he found out that his lungs could breathe air as easily as they did water. He spied a man fishing on the shore and approached him, but as he tried to speak, his voice let out a piercing wail that drove the man unconscious.

As onlookers watched, they called for help, thinking the stranger was attacking the old man. 

Due to the nature of the attack, the call was transfered to a local group of super powered heroes, the Guardians of Creation, and a battle ensued as they tried to restrain the stranger.

As the fight progressed, Rift Walker, the team leader, realized that Drilt wasn't trying to hurt anyone, and he asked their team telepath, Psykinetic, to communicate their intentions. After a session of linguistic tutorial, it was learned that Drilt's vocal cords could not adjust the level of decibels they produced.

With the aid of the team's robot tinkerer, Ro-Bowtix, a mouthpiece was devised to control the intensities of his voice. With it, Drilt could now speak and be heard, but could also increase the intensity of his wail to produce beams or shields of sonic power.


Sonic scream: Killer Wail's vocal cords produce high intensity sonic disturbances.

Force field:
 He can produce a field of quasi solid sound to protect himself or his teammates.

Enhanced vitals: His body is acclimated to survive the extreme depths and cold temperatures of the oceans.

Physical resistance: His body is resistant to high amounts of pressure and attacks.

Super strength:  Enabling him to lift 2 tons.

Speed: Killer Wail can swim at supersonic speeds.

Underwater Breathing: His Atlantean physiology enables him to breathe underwater.

Weaknesses: Even though he can survive on land, he does need to submerge himself in water once a day.

Paraphernalia: Killer Wail must wear his mouthpiece while he is out of the water, or risk causing irreparable damage.
