History:

(Civil War: Front Line#4/3) - "Joe" was one of several Atlanteans sent to the surface to pose as immigrants until called upon by Atlantis to act. As a sleeper agent, he had Caucasian skin and did not remember his Atlantean origins.

(Civil War: Front Line#3/3 (fb) - BTS) - "Joe" married Maria and the two opened Joe's Marine Marina, a shop specializing in fish. Joe kept his origins mysterious and became known for his knowledge of fish.

(Civil War: Front Line#3/3 (fb)) - "Joe" and Maria tended to customer Karen Mason, then went upstairs to watch TV. Maria was shocked when Joe got up and walked away without a word, having heard a summons beeping from a nearby fish bowl. He resumed his true appearance with a shot.

(Civil War: Front Line#9/3 (fb) - BTS) - Green Goblin, meant to flush "Joe" out, blew up the building, which left Maria dead.

(Civil War: Front Line#4/3) - "Joe" donned a fire uniform and hid out at the store's wreckage, listening to policemen Keith Dixon and Donna Altieri share theories about the explosion.

(Civil War: Front Line#5/3 - BTS) - SHIELD put Wonder Man on the tail of "Joe".

(Civil War: Front Line I#6/3) - "Joe" hid in the river for a time, then snuck into an Atlantean facility where other sleeper agents had grouped. He was not aware Wonder Man had followed him.

(Civil War: Front Line#7/3 (fb) - BTS) - "Joe" and the other Atlanteans were killed when the Green Goblin (Norman Osborn) blew up their headquarters. Wonder Man was also knocked unconscious in the battle.
