History: (Defenders II#7 (fb)-BTS) - Hoping to conquer
Atlantis, and knowing Namor would return to oppose him, Attuma gathered
a group of like-minded individuals.
(Defenders II#7) - Namor and the Defenders arrived on the
outskirts of Atlantis, and were confronted by Deep Six and Attuma's
armies. Before much conflict could take place, Namor, the Hulk
and Dr. Stranger were teleported away by their shared curse. The
remaining Defenders used their mystical ring to escape before Attuma
could have them killed.
(Defenders II#11) - The Defenders, once again whole (having
regained the services of the Silver Surfer), led another charge on
Atlantis. This time, the heroes decided to utilize a battle plan
that would keep Attuma and Nagala, the two most powerful members of the
team, occupied while the rest were defeated. The Hulk disregarded
the plan and attacked Orka, but the rest followed through. They
easily defeated Tiger Shark, Piranha and Sea Urchin before they turned
their attention to Nagala. She was knocked unconscious when the
Surfer removed the oxygen from the water she had been breathing.
With his group defeated, Attuma was severely beaten and defeated by
