History: Namor was born the hybrid offspring of Princess Fen of Atlantis
and an American seaman, Captain Leonard McKenzie. McKenzie's ship was
searching for the Lemurian city rumored to house the mythical Helmet of
Power at the behest of one of his passengers, Paul Destiny. However,
McKenzie distrusted the uses to which Destiny would put the Crown and
caused an avalanche to bury the city. Making his way to safety, McKenzie
planted explosives to break up the ice flows, unaware Atlantis lay
beneath. The damage the city sustained prompted King Thakorr to send his
daughter, Fen, to investigate. In a strange twist of fate, the captured
princess married McKenzie. When Fen failed to return after several weeks,
Thakorr dispatched a rescue party. The ensuing scuffle apparently killed
McKenzie, and Fen returned to Atlantis. Nine months later, Namor was born.
Namor grew up with a hostile attitude toward surface-dwellers. When Thakorr
discovered men in diving suits near Atlantis, he assumed they were advance
scouts for an invasion force and ordered Namor to attack New York, where
he fought the original Human Torch. Shortly thereafter, Nazis attacked
Atlantis. Namor joined the Invaders, and later, the All-Winners Squad,
fighting the Nazi scourge alongside Captain America, the Human Torch,
Spitfire, Miss America and myriad other heroes of the day.
Atlantis escaped much of the fighting during World War II, but severe
earthquakes damaged the city. Namor again was dispatched to New York,
where he fell afoul of Paul Destiny, who finally had obtained the Helmet
of Power and was causing the quakes. His power destroyed much of Atlantis,
killing Thakorr and Fen. Under compulsion of the Helmet, Namor returned to
New York with amnesia and became a wandering derelict.
Johnny Storm, the Human Torch II, eventually discovered Namor in the
Bowery. Burning away the extra hair and substantial beard Namor had grown,
Storm dropped the Atlantean in the harbor. The immersion restored most of
Namor's memory, and he spent the next 10 years warring with the surface
world. Eventually, he realized he must put aside his hatred of
surface-dwellers on behalf of his undersea nation.
The Sub-Mariner was a founding member of the loosely knit group of heroes
known as the Defenders, brought together with Dr. Strange and the Hulk
when an ultimate computer called the Omegatron threatened Earth. However,
a curse forced the original three Defenders and the Silver Surfer to part
ways. The condemnation was lifted, but Namor did not return to the
Defenders at that time. The team eventually disbanded, due to
circumstances beyond their control.
Once it was established that Bruce Banner's mind was in control of the Hulk's body, the Hulk was treated to a celebration in New York City where he received a presidential pardon from Ronald Reagan, the key to the city, and praise from a number of superheroes, including Namor (Incredible Hulk #279).
Namor was among the superhumans who were invited to take on the Champion of the Universe in a fighting contest at Madison Square Garden. Sadly Namor was disqualified during training for refuse to follow his trainer's orders (Marvel Two-In-One Annual #7).
The Super-Skrull was freed from the Van Allen belt and battled Namor (Namor The Sub-Mariner #17).
Namor was among the people invited to the wedding of Rick Jones and Marlo Chandler (Incredible Hulk #418).
Namor was among the members of the Avengers who were captured by Morgan Le Fay and mind controlled into becoming her personal guard, the Queen's Vengeance. When under her control he went by the name Sealord (Avengers III #2-3).
He was among the heroes incapacitated by Graviton when he attempted to take over the Earth once again (Thunderbolts #57).
Powers: Namor can lift about 100 tons at peak capacity, although his strength degrades the longer he is out of water, to a minimum of 50 tons. He is an amphibian, and breathes water and air with equal facility. Namor also can fly for several hours at peak speeds of 60 mph before tiring. In addition, he possesses limited invulnerability. He is very resistant to electricity but vulnerable to heat and flame. By concentrating he can sense the world around him through a form of radar.
