'The Islander' revealed as 29th NHL Guardian
The Blue

The Islander is the toughest man to ever set foot on the earth and though an avid sailor, he's happiest when he reaches his port. At 7 feet tall and almost as wide, he wears a metal mesh shark suit with chainmail suspenders hooked over his burly shoulders. His main weapon is a massive grappling hook with three prongs that each resembles a hockey stick.

The superhero abilities the Islander possesses, outside of super strength, are two forms of hydrokinesis. He can alter ocean currents, control weather patterns and wind at sea, and creates rogue waves or even tidal waves if the need arises. He has the ability to turn parts of his body into sea water in order to slip into an enemy stronghold undetected or to avoid injury. The Islander, in short, is the Guardians' resident marine.
Quote of the Day

I've got a lot of experience and there's a lot of young guys. It's even making me excited a little more. It's kind of a new life. At my age, I feel like I know a lot of things what to do, but I just cannot do it anymore. It's a lot easier to tell them what to do because they've still got the legs and hands to do it. I just know things, but I cannot do them anymore.
