History: (Sub-Mariner I#4) - Kor-Konn was a member of Attuma's barbarian hordes when Attuma enslaved the nomadic people of Atlantis.  While out with a scouting party, Kor-Konn spotted Namor, the Sub-Mariner, swimming past and attacked him with a battle axe, but Namor tossed Kor-Konn aside.  After Kor-Konn shocked Namor with news of the enslaved Atlanteans, he was able to fell Namor with a single blow.  Seeking great honor, Kor-Konn brought a confined Namor before Attuma and Saru-San.  Attuma was angered that Kor-Konn had not destroyed Namor, realizing that Namor was only feigning defeat.  Namor quickly burst free and soon defeated Attuma in solo combat.

(Super-Villain Team-Up I#1 (fb)) - When Attuma allied with Dr. Dorcas and Tiger Shark, he led his forces in capturing the Hydro-Men.  Only one, Dr. Jennings, escaped. 

(Super-Villain Team-Up I#1) - When Dr. Jennings contacted Namor, Kor-Konn led a force, including Saru-San, to defeat Namor.  He fired a warning shot and told Namor that he intended to murder him.  Namor quickly defeated Kor-Konn and his allies.

(Super-Villain Team-Up I#3) - Namor, allied with Dr. Doom, led a final assault against Attuma's forces and allies, defeating them.  Kor-Konn led his men in battle against Dr. Doom.  They had him pinned on the ground until Doom struck two missiles together, seemingly killing Kor-Konn and his men, though Doom lived.
