“Don’t tell me, Jackson – did you really have to sacrifice anything?” While they are fighting, Delilah scolds him. “Risk that whole life of yours at real risk?”

Delilah/Deluge challenges Jackson to show some of the same tenacity as his father (Black Manta), but it is their mother, Lucia, which prompts a frenzied attack on Delilah by the unknown Jackson. Lucia eventually tries to break up the sibling feud.

“He doesn’t really have a clue, does…?” It’s called a flood. “Incredible.”

It is only after repeated provocations by Delilah that Lucia finally reveals what is really going on.

“Her name is Delilah, Jackson… she’s your sister…”

Deluge/Delilla has been chasing Jackson since his debut in Aquaman: The Becoming #1, even apparently preparing him to bomb Atlantis and make him the man wanted by the Atlantis Guards Used to be.

Unless Lucia lies about Delilah and Jackson being sisters, the development will create new parallels for Arthur, Jackson’s mentor. The original Aquaman also has a half-brother, Orm Marius/Ocean Master, one of Arthur’s arch-villains. It’s not yet revealed who Delilah’s father is, but judging by how she refers to Jackson’s father, Black Manta, it doesn’t look like it’s him (or at least she doesn’t think it’s him. ).
