Crosta is a member of the Homo mermanus race better known as Atlantean's. The Homo mermanus just like their cousins the Homo sapiens have Mutants born within their society. Crosta was secreted away by his mother after the abandonment of Atlantis, his father eventually brought him to the attention of their King Namor in a paternity suit.
When his mutant powers emmerged he was ordered by Namor to attend a mutant school in San Francisco (Graymalkin Industries, current home of the X-Men), rather than remain with his mother or join his father in Latveria with the Atlantean military, he violently rejected the idea, attacking Namor. Reined in by Namor, he was sent to the X-Men.
He was later shown in the waters below Utopia, guiding new Atlantean immigrants to the Citizen Intake Center at the base of the pillar supporting Utopia.
Atlantean Abbilities Crosta possesses the conventional attributes of Homo mermanus: gills that extract oxygen from water, superhuman physiology to withstand extreme pressures and temperatures, and acute vision. He can swim at approximately 30 miles per hour. He can remain out of water for approximately nine minutes before beginning to suffocate. However, he can operate on the surface by wearing a water-filled helmet or using a chemical that enables him to draw oxygen from the air.
Mutant Abbilities Crosta can generate shockwaves from his body when distressed which is powerful enough to shatter solid matter.
