King Shark Is A Creature Of Amphibious, Aquatic Abilities
In that situation, you could almost empathize with King Shark, who may have just felt that those vacationers were invading on his home. The humanoid was, in fact, born in the waters surrounding Hawaii, which is a perfect place for someone of his physiology to grow up.
King Shark has all the common characteristics of the infamous aquatic predator of his namesake (especially the sharp teeth, indefinite underwater survival, and communication with other sharks). Yet, he can also communicate with people, survive on land for long periods of time, and has superhuman strength and stamina and the benefits of having arms and legs, too. The origins of his less animalistic qualities have been up for debate, however.
