Shark Week is from August 9 to August 16. To honor Shark Week, I will blog about a shark character. The character that comes to mind is King Shark.

 

King Shark first appeared in Superboy volume 4 #0 (October 1994) as a cameo. His first full appearance in Superboy vol 4 #9 (November 1994).  King Shark has superhuman strength and enhanced senses.

He appeared regularly in CW The Flash TV show. King Shark famous battle is actually against Gorilla in season 5 titled “King Shark vs. Gorilla Grodd” debuted on March 5, 2019.

A copy of Superboy volume 4 #9 CGC 9.8 sold for $89.95 on January 16, 2019. On July 22, 2019 a copy of Superboy volume 4 #9 CGC 9.8 sold for $135.00. A copy of Superboy volume 4 #9 CGC 9.8 sold for $118 on July 21, $119 on July 26 and $160 on July 31, 2020.

The new Suicide Squad movie will have Harley Quinn, Deadshot, King Shark, Ratcatcher, Polka Dot Man and Peacemaker. The first two (Harley Quinn and Deadshot) are A list characters. King Shark is a B list character, the rest of them are D list characters. The D list characters will probably die in the movie in my opinion.

Will his appearance in the new Suicide Squad affect the value?
