Background/History: Merry Mason was a young runaway who ended up hiding on Hank Waters' trawler, and during that voyage, the two of them were exposed to the mysterious 'Energy X.' Gaining similar, but not identical, powers, Merry became the natural sidekick to Man O' War, taking the name Sea Urchin.

Personality/Motivation: Sea Urchin is a direct contrast to Man O' War, being very sunny and optimistic. Indeed, she is often his main source of encouragement in his superhero career, balancing out his more pessimistic personality and helping him from getting too down.

Quote: "Where's your sense of adventure?"

Powers/Tactics: Sea Urchin was given powers in the same incident that changed Man O' War and has likewise become an aquatic creature, although she doesn't seem to possess Man O' War's vulnerability to cold. She also has the unique ability to generate various bubbles of force, although at the start, most of them are 'focused' through a toy gun she carries as a costume accessory. With experience Sea Urchin learns to generate new kinds of bubbles, and develops other unique powers like a Sonic Scream (ranged attack). In combat, she works well with Man O' War, one setting up a target and the other using a secondary attack to knock him out.

Appearance: Sea Urchin is probably age ten, less than five feet tall and weighing 80 pounds. She is obviously non-human, with light blue skin, webbed hands, and bright pink hair. Sea Urchin wears a scaled costume in similar motif to Man O' War's, with a mermaid's crown on her head. Like Man O' War, she seems to 'swim' as she moves across the ground.
