Dive into the backstory of Jackson Hyde a.k.a Aqualad, a.k.a. Kaldur’ahm in the DCUO “Call me Kaldur” Investigation featured in the DCUO Episode 33: Atlantis DLC.
This 7 part investigation gives a brief look at the backstory of Aqualad, who makes his DC Universe Online debut in Episode 33. After growing up in New Mexico, being raised alone by his mother, Jackson Hyde discovers there is more to him than meets the eye. Jackson Hyde isn’t your usual teenager. No. Jackson Hyde is actually an Aquamancer from the underwater kingdom of Xebel. He also discoveres that his absentee father is infact David Hyde, a super villain more widely known as Black Manta.
After the events in Episode 32: Teen Titans: The Judas Contract, Cyborg had left the Teen Titans to join the Justice League. Aqualad received an invitation to join the Teen Titans, but it wasn’t long before the events of Episode 31: Deluge and Episode 33: Atlantis pulled him back under the sea to help overcome the new threat posed by the newly crowned King, Corum Rath.
The Kaldur’ahm version of Aqualad originated in the hit TV show Young Justice. He was later adopted into the comic books with parts of his character remaining the same as he was in the TV show.
Aqualad’s style can be obtained from Episode 33. The style is known as Son of the Manta. I have created a video looking at this style, which can be found at this link:
The Call Me Kaldur investigation can be found in Episode 33 content. 5 parts of the collection are located in the Open World Atlantis region. 1 collection can be found inside The Silent School 4-player alert. The final part is located inside The Throne 8-player Operation. Below are the time stamps for each of the collection’s nodes:
Titan Confessional 1 – 0:47
Titan Confessional 2 – 1:23
Titan Confessional 3 – 1:53
Titan Confessional 4 – 2:24
Titan Confessional 5 – 2:50
Titan Confessional 6 – 3:23
Titan Confessional 7 – 3:52
Upon completing the Call Me Kaldur investigation, players will be sent the Crown of Thorns Visage style. The Crown of Thorns Visage style takes inspiration from The Crown of Thorns Golem boss inside The Silent School alert. It is a reskin of the DCUO Spring Seasonal Event style “Forest Spirit”, except you can slightly tint the colour of the bark on the style, and every few seconds, a wave of red energy flows over the style. Players can also earn the Crown of Thorns Chest, Hands, and Legs styles by completing other Briefings/Investigations.
