* DealWithTheDevil: Cut a deal with Neron for mystical powerspowers. * EvilCounterpart: As the ruler of the Dreaming City, he finally assumes a regal role like that of his hated half-brother, takes a lover much as Aquaman has taken Dolphin as a consort, and has a golden trident he can't let go of that parallels Aquaman's golden hook-hand.

Sometime in her life she ran with [[SorcerousOverlord the Thule]] in order to reclaim the seven seas and, as an eventual milestone, the world at large by encroaching their dimension into Earth's own.

Being the bad girl she was Hila eventually fell in with a bad boy sorcerer and long time enemy of Aquaman by the name of Kandor, both of whom were exiled from their native home dimension Aqua for past crimes and together the two conspired against Aquaman and her Sister in a bid for power. But both suffered a change of heart in the following events and redeemed themselves. In the Post-Crisis continuity after the anti-monitors rampage and events detailing the Brightest day ongoing, Hila is one amongst a colony vicious inmates from the PrisonDimension of Xebel which was located within TheBermudaTriangle.
