History: (Namor: The Sub-Mariner Annual #3/3 (FB)) - The ancient mutant known as Apocalypse decided he needed an agent for espionage. He went to work a robot, designing it in the form of a woman. For an unknown period of time, the Assassin, in a number of appearances, worked secretly to further Apocalypse's goals.

 

 

(Namor: The Sub-Mariner Annual#3/1 (FB) (BTS)) - Apocalypse decided to turn the "mutant" Namor into one of his thralls, using a plot that the Assassin was central to. Disguising her as a Japanese woman named Mimeyoshi, he then sent her to Tokyo to seduce a friend of Namor, Tsuyoi, and eventually they began a relationship of some kind.

(Namor: The Sub-Mariner Annual#3/1) - One night, when Tsuyoi, uh, went to bed with her, she killed him.

BTS - Apocalypse came to Japan and used his abilities to disguise himself as Tsuyoi. He then invited Namor to "his" home.

(Namor: The Sub-Mariner Annual#3/1) - Namor arrived at Tsuyoi's club, where "Tsuyoi" and the Assassin awaited him. They watched some performers, during which the two men talked. Later that night, the Assassin went to Namor's room, offering herself. Namor refused, but she didn't listen and kissed him, during which she drugged him. Namor was infuriated and struck her, and when she easily brushed it off, he realized she wasn't human. A battle insured, which the Assassin easily won.

 

    Apocalypse and the Assassin took Namor to a submarine, where Apocalypse revealed himself and explained his plan. However, Namor broke free, and started to smash the sub. Apocalypse ordered the Assassin to kill the Sub-Mariner while he made his getaway. Though Namor tore off one of her arms, the two were about even when the Assassin started to self-destruct. Namor escaped, but the Assassin survived as well.

(Namor: The Sub-Mariner Annual#3/3) - As Apocalypse recounted her origins, the Assassin was walking the ocean shore.

Comments: Created by Ron Marz and Gajin Studios.

The Assassin was one of the many 1993 Annual characters who were supposed to become major players. So far (and probably forever), only Genis-Vell has fulfilled that purpose, now staring in the Captain Marvel series, and he was connected to a previous character, and still had to be revamped by Kurt Busiek and Peter David.

So, I capture Namor, who gets his strength from water. Where do I hold him captive? The desert? A volcano? No, in a submarine under the Pacific Ocean! Next month, the Hulk is trapped in Joe's Gamma Warehouse.

I'm not sure what the explosion was, so I'm assuming that Apocalypse somehow made the Assassin able to survive the self-destruction. Of course, it's that the case, why didn't he get her after Namor left? Then again, Apocalypse wasn't too bright in this story (see above paragraph).

The Assassin could return either under Apocalypse or another villain. She would be perfect for the new Mystique book.
