First appearance



Miya Shimada was born a nisei — a Japanese-American born in the United States of native Japanese parents. She was thus a full American citizen and grew up in Santa Barbara, California.

The racial prejudice against Japanese-Americans that Miya encountered during the start of World War II caused her to turn against America. She went to Japan to study for a few years and there she joined the cause of the Imperial Japanese government. It was the famed Japanese naval commander Admiral Yamamoto who named Miya Shimada "Tsunami" (the Japanese word for "tidal wave") after her mental power to create and control such waves.

In early 1942, after the United States had entered the war against Japan, Tsunami was secretly brought to California by a Japanese submarine and she sought to convince Japanese-Americans to join Imperial Japan's cause. Tsunami soon found herself battling Liberty Belle and Starman of the All-Star Squadron, and when her father was seemingly killed in the skirmish, Tsunami went berserk but failed to defeat them and departed instead.

Shortly afterwards, Tsunami was summoned by Japan's Prince Daka to assist him in stealing Starman's powerful gravity rod. She again clashed with members of the All-Star Squadron but was appalled by Daka's ruthlessness and lack of honor. She found herself instead respecting the All-Stars and decided she could no longer side with Daka. Yet she was not yet ready to align with the Americans either, and she fled again.


One more time, the Axis powers attempted to recruit Tsunami, but by this time she had reflected upon and felt remorse for her actions. She declined an invitation by the German villain Sea Wolf to join the Axis Amerika and afterwards became depressed and contemplated suicide. At a critial moment, she met another undersea hero, Neptune Perkins, who convinced her to try another path. [1] Together they approached Green Lantern for his help to end the imprisonment of Japanese Americans.

Green Lantern took the two to meet the Squadron. Miya pled her case to the day's assembly, which also included President Roosevelt. FDR pleged to look into the matter of the detention camps then suggested that Tsunami and her new young friends travel the country on a cross-country war bond tour. She and the others were all given provisional membership in the All-Star Squadron and set off.

Some, like Sandy found it difficult to accept a former adversary, but Perkins was always ready to defend her. On one of their first stops, Miya came under attack by prejudiced bystanders in Los Angeles. The group helped her find her family in a nearby camp, where she elected to stay until they could be freed. [2] She was soon forced to leave the camp when she learned that Axis Amerika and her former ally, Kamikaze, had attacked.

Naturally, Miya grew close to Neptune Perkins during this time, after the war they raised a daughter named Debbie Perkins (Deep Blue), who was actually fathered by Atlan and therefore is Aquaman's half sister.

Tsunami as Tidal Wave in Final Fantasy V.

Tsunami (つなみ), also known as Tidal Wave, is a recurring ability in the Final Fantasy series. It is always associated with the Water element, and has been used by player character, enemy, and summon alike. Most of its appearances are the attack of the summon, Leviathan.



Final Fantasy

Tsunami is one of the four elemental attacks Chaos may cast upon the party. It deals heavy damage to the entire party.

Final Fantasy III

Tidal Wave is the best attack of Leviathan, and can only be cast when a Summoner calls it.

Final Fantasy IV

Tsunami is special attack used by Cagnazzo in both boss battles against him. The ability causes small Water damage and may cause Instant Death. This ability is available to the party as an Augment ability in the Nintendo DS version.

Final Fantasy IV: The After Years

Tsunami is an enemy ability used by the Flood Worm in the Underground Waterway. Lord Dragon use Tidal Wave, which is also Leviathan's signature attack as a Summon.

Final Fantasy V

Tidal Wave does massive Water-elemental damage to the entire party. It is used by Leviathan, Neo Shinryu, Shinryu, and Twintania.

Final Fantasy VI

Tsunami is a Blue Magic spell from Final Fantasy VI, learned by Strago Magus. It functions a bit like Aqua Breath, dealing Water-elemental damage to all enemies. Tsunami differs from Aqua breath in that Aqua Breath also inflicts Wind-elemental damage. In addition, Tsunami ignores split spell damage across enemy groups (while Aqua breath does not), making Tsunami a better choice for monster groups of four or more. Strago can learn Tsunami from the Enuo, Blue Dragon, and Ultima Buster enemies.

Kaiser Dragon will also use Tsunami when he is in "Water" mode.

Final Fantasy VII

The boss Aps uses Sewer Tsunami in the fight underneath Midgar's slums. It deals damage to both the boss and the characters, but it deals more damage to whichever side it hits first. So, it can actually hurt Aps more than its target.

The Summon, Leviathan uses Tidal Wave as its attack. In the Demo release of the game, Leviathan was the only summon available and its attack was originally called Tsunami.

Huge Tidal Wave is used by both Acrophies and Serpent, and deals Water-elemental damage to all targets, including the enemy, which results in healing said enemy.

Final Fantasy VIII

The Guardian Force Leviathan's attack is called Tsunami. It inflicts Water-elemental damage and may sweep enemies from the field entirely.

Final Fantasy IX

During Zidane's solo battle with Black Waltz No. 1, the enemy Sealion's jewel may change colors from green to yellow to red. When the jewel is red, Sealion uses its most dangerous attack, Tsunami.

Tsunami is once again the ability of the Eidolon Leviathan.

Final Fantasy XI

Tidal Wave is the Astral Flow blood pact of Leviathan.

Final Fantasy XII

The Esper of Water, Famfrit, uses Tsunami as its ultimate attack. It will only cast Tsunami if its HP is below 30% of its maximum HP or if there are 10 seconds left in its summoning time.

Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings

Famfrit returns, and Tsunami is once again its ultimate attack. It is a ranged attack that deals Water damage to enemies in a straight line.

Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift

By summoning the Scion Famfrit through the Ewer of Darkness, a player can attack all enemies with Tsunami.

The Seeq Viking learns the ability Tsunami from the Hammerhead. It only works when the Seeq is on a water tile, and deals HP and MP damage to units in a large targetable area.

Dissidia Final Fantasy

One of Garland's HP attacks is named Tsunami, and involves him jumps up and throw his sword with a chain onto the floor. The sword then curls around the floor like a snake to hit the opponent with an explosion of water. The summon Leviathan also uses Tsunami, which decreases the opponent's Brave Points continuously by a set value over a period of time.

From Marvel Database


Tsunami was a failed imprint of Marvel Comics founded in January 2003. Marvel's goal was to create comic books that would appeal to manga readers. Other than in the art, the titles shared little in common, with, for example, Runaways and Sentinels being aimed at children and younger teenagers and Mystique touching on espionage and darker themes better suited for an older audience.

The results were a mixed bag. While New Mutants, Mystique, Runaways and Sentinel earned critical acclaim and a devoted fan following, Human Torch, Namor and Venom were complete flops, with the last surviving to issue 18 only on the back of exceptionally high initial sales. Many comic book fans regarded the entire imprint as a cheap attempt by Marvel Comics to capitalize on the growing popularity of Japanese manga. (though the Marvel Mangaverse was a much more blatant attempt at this)

The imprint was discontinued in late 2003. Mystique was the longest continuously-running survivor - lasting until issue 24 overall, although it was folded into the regular, mainstream Marvel Comics imprint and had a change of writer as part of the X-Men: ReLoad event after issue 13, while New Mutants, also part of ReLoad, was relaunched from issue 1 as New X-Men: Academy X at the same time. Venom and Runaways carried the imprint branding for the longest period, lasting until issue 18, after which Runaways was briefly cancelled before being relaunched as part of the Marvel Next initiative, while Venom was cancelled outright. The other series were cancelled with issue 12.

Since then, Runaways has received a boost from high Digest-sized trade paperback (TPB) sales, which was one of the reasons for its relaunch, while Sentinel was also revived, as a five-issue miniseries, for the same reason. However, Human Torch also received a single digest without signs of revival.

New Mutants received a single standard-size TPB, of its first six issues, as well as complete collections in the same format of its successor series, New X-Men: Academy X, which was revamped shortly after House of M as simply New X-Men. Mystique and Venom were fully collected as standard-size TPBs, but shows no sign of being revived.

Namor has not been collected, nor are there any reports of it being so in the remainder of 2006.
