Traits: Krago is a large two-finned fish, gray in color.  He is several times larger than a large boat or submarine.

History: (Sub-Mariner I#44 (fb)) - Little is known about Krago's background.  He roamed the sea until Namor, the Sub-Mariner, put Krago into an age-long sleep by using special herbs.

(Sub-Mariner I#44) - Krago was awakened from his age-old sleep by a magno-beam fired to the ocean's bottom by Llyra.  Krago moved to the ocean's surface where he devastated some ships until Namor shoved a large piece of wood into the creature's mouth, sending Krago retreating beneath the waves in pain.  Krago resurfaced again, and took a blast from the Human Torch, then Namor impaled Krago with the wooden stake.  While thrashing about, Krago jumped above the surface and struck a flying submarine, taking it, and its occupants Llyra, Lymondo, and Tiger Shark, crashing below the surface with him.  Krago was seemingly killed.

Comments: Created by Gerry Conway, Marie Severin and Jim Mooney.
