Arion, High Mage of Atlantis Respect Thread

A small respect thread for Arion, High Mage of Atlantis!

First we’ll start with his depowered era, in which he either has no magical abilities or has to use spells, natural psychic ability or objects of power to act.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v...rlord058-24.jpg

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...rlord058-25.jpg

Arion’s brief origin.

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...ntis-04-p20.jpg

Retold in a different way…Arion’s father moves a STAR.

Depowered

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v...NewArion1-1.jpg

A depowered Arion (shorn of his natural magical abilities, using only trickets and spells and knowledge) senses a great disturbance in the universe, then looks years into the future to see what is causing it.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v.../Arion/21-1.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v...ad/Arion/22.jpg

Looks through time to the events happening 400 years in the future, then travels to the future. Again, all very casually.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v...NewArion2-1.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v...n/NewArion3.jpg

Casually banishes the amazingly powerful Subjekt 17, an alien on par with Superman in destructive ability (and arguably even more versatile).

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v...n/NewArion4.jpg

Easily captures the mage masquerading as Arion. This mage was apparently powerful enough that no one noticed that he wasn’t Arion, and helped out during Day of Vengeance.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v...ad/Arion/10.jpg

More imprisonment of fake Arion (who is apparently from Arkon Ohio).

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v...n/NewArion5.jpg

‘Seizes control’ of the minds of a number of young New Gods, gets them to play in Metropolis, just to make a point to Superman.


http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v...n/NewArion6.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v...Arion/02-03.jpg

Knocks Superman down with a magical blast and creates a spell to take over his mind (which, thanks to help from Zatanna, doesn’t actually work).

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v...ad/Arion/08.jpg

Arion shows Superman, Lois, Perry and Jimmy a post apocalyptic future that will occur if things aren’t changed.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v...n/NewArion7.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v...ad/Arion/09.jpg

Casually defends against the Science police, then flies away. Shows natural shields around him.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v...ad/Arion/16.jpg

Shields himself from the prying eyes of the science police and from Superman’s Super Senses.

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...rion/?start=100

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v...ad/Arion/18.jpg

Creates a magical energy shield that is totally impervious/impermeable to Superman, but allows water to flow through it freely.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v...ad/Arion/04.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v...ad/Arion/05.jpg

Unleashed a few Darkness creatures against Zatanna and Superman which cause them immense trouble, and says that he could unleash many more throughout the city if he really wanted to cause damage.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v...Annual13-08.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v...Annual13-09.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v...Annual13-10.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v...Annual13-13.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v...Annual13-14.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v...Annual13-15.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v...Annual13-16.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v...Annual13-17.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v...Annual13-20.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v...Annual13-22.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v...Annual13-23.jpg


Lots in this one. Battles a Superman who has a protective shield created by the Phantom Stranger, protecting him from magic. Arion makes it clear that his attack SHOULD flay the skin from Superman’s bones, that if he had his full power he could casually remove that shield, transforms New Gods into ancient water demons capable of giving Superman a bit of trouble, transforms himself into a incredibly large and powerful Lovecraftian horror capable of giving Superman serious trouble, threatens to pull Superman’s soul from his body, and then it’s revealed that he’s been keeping the underwater Atlantian city together the entire time as well. And then, once Superman removes his talismans, he teleports back to his own time and reveals that he used disguise spells on the guy from Akron Ohio to make everyone think he had been captured.

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...rion26-19-1.jpg

Pretty much totally devoid of magical ability, he still can conjure illusions without spells.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v...rion28-10-1.jpg

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v...rion28-12-1.jpg

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...rion28-13-1.jpg

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...rion28-15-1.jpg

Calls down the power of a God, the weaver of the threads of magic and fate that flow through the universe then, once the power has been weaved back into him (it gives him back his connection to the magic, but only for a while) he knocks the god down and threatens to destroy him.

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...=Arion30-13.jpg

Still without his normal abilities, spells allow him to call down an Eye of Amagetto type power.

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...=Arion30-22.jpg

Can still destroy a bunch of powerful future tech with his spells.

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...=Arion30-23.jpg

Even without his magic, he still has natural psychic abilities that he can use to mind probe people and devices and even occasionally see into the future.

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...;current=06.jpg

Again psychic abilities.

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...rlord055-20.jpg

Drives back an army of primitives that all the armies of Atlantis can’t beat.

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...=Arion18-20.jpg

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...=Arion18-21.jpg

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...=Arion18-22.jpg

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...=Arion19-11.jpg

Arion calls down power from his ‘dead’ father, a being around since the beginning of creation. This leaves him more powerful than he normally is, but still limited in the amount of magic he has. Still, he defeats Garn (who continually has his magic), imprisoning him in powerful magical chains from which he can’t escape.

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...=Arion19-17.jpg

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...=Arion19-18.jpg

The battle is renewed, each calling upon the power of their patron gods. Arion counteracts Darth’s spell, and teleports.

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...=Arion20-20.jpg

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...=Arion20-21.jpg

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...=Arion20-22.jpg

Totally without his magical powers, he battles a pirate hand to hand, weapon to weapon, demonstrating his physical skill.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v...n/arion1116.jpg

Totally without powers, he demonstrates his skill with a blade.

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...t=arion1131.jpg

Has psychic abilities, shows them again.

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...=Arion24-19.jpg

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...=Arion24-20.jpg

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...=Arion24-21.jpg

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...=Arion24-22.jpg

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...=Arion24-23.jpg

Again calling upon the power of his father to help him out, he battles Gareth across dimensions, and actually commands the stuff of one dimension, Darkworld (from which all magic originates at this point) to eat him up.

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...Untitled-13.jpg

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...Untitled-14.jpg

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...Untitled-15.jpg

He faces off against the Dark God who once ruled the earth, and plans on doing so again. Banishes him quite nicely.

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...rlord055-24.jpg

Parts time to talk to his dead father.

Fully Powered

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v...ad/Arion/13.jpg

Zatanna describes him as a being with access to nearly limitless magical energy before he was depowered.

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...;current=20.jpg

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...;current=21.jpg

Gets his magic back, destroys a bunch of demons.

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...mortal05-02.jpg

Turns a bunch of people into apes with a thought.

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...mortal05-09.jpg

Creates a permanent inter-dimensional portal in his home (after teleporting everyone there).

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...mortal05-18.jpg

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...mortal05-19.jpg

Darkworld houses some of the most powerful magical creatures in existence. It exists as kind of a limbo. Darkworld itself is throwing these beings at Arion, and he casually destroys them.

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...mortal06-05.jpg

Arion was Sorceror Supreme, “king of the world” basically the most powerful sorcerer of his time. He has the power to prevent or cause the resurgence of ALL of their type of magic in the entire DCU.

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...mortal06-13.jpg

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...mortal06-14.jpg

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...mortal06-15.jpg

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...mortal06-17.jpg


Gets free from magical shackles, the stuff of the universe, then faces down the weaver and teaches him a lesson.


http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...mortal06-20.jpg

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...mortal06-21.jpg

Arion EASILY defeats both his brother Garn AND the source of all ancient magic to save the world. Then he teleports him and power girl away.


http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...rion15-05-1.jpg

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...=Arion01-10.jpg


The power of the Dark God Chaon is enough not only to destroy the planet, but to bring about the destruction of the universe (this will become important in a bit). Moreover, he represents the Chaos portion of a cosmic trinity, without the existence of which all of creation would unravel. Here we see that he’s stopped (but not killed, since all of creation would be destroyed) his two counterparts (order and balance), trapped the god of the threads in his own webs (those threads are the fabric of the universe) and pretty much stopped/killed all gods that are benevolent.

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...-12ocdhorus.jpg

If Chaon and his sister touch, the entire universe will be driven to madness…such is the depth and breadth of their power.

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...-13ocdhorus.jpg

Here is what happens when they do touch – planets go spinning out of control, suns nearly go nova, etc. Also, Arion’s father mentions that he’s destroyed entire dimensions. His father is less powerful than he is.

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...=Arion01-21.jpg

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...=Arion01-22.jpg

A brief skirmish with Chaon, and Arion demonstrates intangibility.

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...=Arion01-39.jpg

Arion saves every surviving person on quickly sinking atlantis, and destroys Chaon’s physical form as well.

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...lantis05-21.jpg

Destroys a mountain, leaving a pillar intact for he and his friends.


http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...=Arion07-19.jpg

Causes an acid rain to get rid of some undead monsters.

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...=Arion07-28.jpg

Exorcises a powerful demon, destroys the beings the demon sent against his friends.

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...=Arion07-31.jpg

Creates sail constructs and talks to his brother garn from a great distance.

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...Arion_02_04.jpg

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...Arion_02_05.jpg

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...Arion_02_06.jpg

Arion creates a shield for the entire city of Atlantis, energy blasts to intercept some of the blasts coming at him, follows his mystical senses to a place of danger and uses a spell to reveal his enemies.

Arion brings a guy back to life, and then makes it clear that he can keep his soul for as long as he wants, refusing to allow it to go to the afterlife until after he’s said all he wants to know.

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...-17ocdhorus.jpg

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...-18ocdhorus.jpg

Destroys the embodiment of an entire sun (his mother).

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...=arion08-03.jpg

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...=arion08-04.jpg

Converts a stationary citadel into a flying ship to sail through Darkworld.

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v..._a--13-46-1.jpg

Was summoned by Kara’s dreams.

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v..._a--13-47-1.jpg

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v..._a--13-48-1.jpg


Creates a kind of dark magic energy double of Power Girl.


http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...SA-050-25-1.jpg

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...SA-050-26-1.jpg

Weakens Mordru while in spirit form.

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...es2of6-22-1.jpg

Casts a spell to allow Kara to breath under water.

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...se9507p24-2.jpg

Arion’s anger manifests as both physical creatures and as an energy that rips people’s souls out of their bodies.

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...nt=scan0020.jpg

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...=scan0021-1.jpg

His mother, already an accomplished Dark Mage, gains control of The Mystic Eye, the heart of Darkworld. Arion still destroys her with ease.

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...=Arion32-06.jpg

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...=Arion32-13.jpg

Having just recouped his magical abilities, he battles a bunch of Darkworld demons and pretty casually defeats them, impressing his demon friend who had lived there for millennia.

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...=Arion32-20.jpg

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...=Arion32-22.jpg

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...=Arion32-23.jpg

Arion faces off against a being made from the magic of Darkworld. His demon buddy makes it clear that you can’t fight the magic of Darkworld WITH the magic of Darkworld, which SHOULD make his attacks essentially useless. But Arion, as Arion says, no being has ever fought Darkworld with his level of power and he does the impossible – Blasts the creature to smithereens.

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...;current=19.jpg

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...nDarkness10.jpg

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...nDarkness11.jpg


Big battle with a creature made from Darkness which threatens to destroy Atlantis, and then with the guy who summoned it as they battle across dimensions.


http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...wkmanv33217.jpg

Arion ‘grapples with true gods’, has the power to excise all the souls held within Katar Hol and teleports Katar away.


http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...wkmanv33324.jpg

Takes control of Martian Manhunter.


http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...rlord060-20.jpg

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...rlord060-21.jpg

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...rlord060-23.jpg

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...rlord060-24.jpg

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...rlord060-25.jpg


Astral battle between Garn and Arion has to be taken to another world due to collateral damage, their blasts shake the world, etc.


http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...Woman108-05.jpg

Casually stops Etrigan.


http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...Woman108-06.jpg

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...Woman108-07.jpg

Hurts Diana a bunch, and outreacts her as well.


http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...Woman108-09.jpg

Puts down Diana with a single (sucker) shot from behind.

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...nt=scan0025.jpg

When Arions best friend is turned into a half man/half animal hybrid but super science, Arion puts him right back to normal.

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...JusticeLeag.jpg

Summons a very powerful Atlantian monster (and implies that he subdued it before).

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...amanv325-04.jpg

His mystical knowledge/senses far outstrip even those of the sorcerer Atlan (father of Orin).

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...amanv325-12.jpg

Gets Tiamut, mystical dragon, to let go of Power Girl.


http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...amanv325-21.jpg

Heals dolphin (off panel, but you can see the implication here).

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v...quaman24p07.jpg

Creates an energy shield to block some energy blasts.

Superman: Camelot Falls.

Collected in two TPBs, or assorted issues (ending in Superman Annual 13, I believe).

I'd give you more exact issue numbers but due to fill ins/delays it's difficult to recall. They are very scattershot.
