Namor is the son of Princess Fen of Atlantis and US sea Captain, Leonard McKenzie. Born and raised in Atlantis he grew up to mistrust the surface world and when two divers where spotted near the Atlantian city it was thought that humans were about to invade their watery realm. The Emperor, Namor’s grandfather Thakorr sent him to wreak havoc on the surface world and many times he battled the original Human Torch. One human he came to respect and eventually fall in love with was Betty Dean, a policewoman who had stood alone against him. Namor and Betty were companions for many years and she softens his view of his surface dwelling neighbours. When Hitler attacked Atlantis during the Second World War He joined forces with the Torch, Toro and Captain America to fight the Nazi menace as the super team the Invaders.
After the war he spent some time as a crime fighter with the All Winners Squad. A former crewman of Namor’s father used the Helmet of Power, in actually the Serpent Crown, to destroy Atlantis and scatter it’s occupants. He addled Namor’s mind to make him forget his past and sent him to New York where he became a down and out for some years until he was found by Johnny Storm of the Fantastic Four who immersed him in the ocean waters that healed him and his memory returned. On finding an Atlantean settlement destroyed by American atomic testing, he once again turned his wrath on the surface world though he was constantly thwarted by the Fantastic Four. On learning of the Death of Thakkor, Namor set himself up as ruler of Atlantis and led a new attack on America. Namor was developing a romantic interest in Sue Storm, the Invisible girl of the Fantastic Four. He kidnapped Sue but when she nearly drowned returned her to a hospital. Shocked at their leaders interest in an enemy his people abandoned him. After a while Namor returned to his position as Atlantean leader and fell in love with the Lady Dorma. Dorma was killed on their wedding day. Whilst he mourned his lost love Namor gave up his role of leader but soon returned and also around this time teamed up with the Defenders.
He later fell in love with the amphibious Marina of Alpha Flight and abdicated his leadership at the request of his council and joined the Avengers for a short while. Atlantis fell into the hands of the warlord Attuma and a breakaway faction pleaded with Namor to return he set up a new undersea kingdom called Deluvia and married Marrina. On becoming pregnant, Marrina’s alien physiology caused her to become a great leviathon that terrorised the oceans until confronted by Namor and the Avengers. Namor had to kill his wife and then the world believing him to be dead went off to track down their offspring. He has since returned to once more rule his people.
