(Inhumans III#6/Inhumans III#7 (fb) - BTS) - When Portuguese mercenaries attacked Attilan, Naanis was killed in the battle. (see comments)

(Inhumans III#7 - BTS) - Timberius requested revenge from the Genetic Council for Naanis' death.

Comments: Created by Paul Jenkins and Jae Lee.

In Inhumans III#6, the Portuguese mercenaries break through the tachyon fields of some Inhuman soldiers, seemingly killing them. One of these soldiers may or may not have been Naanis.

It should also be noted that in said fight in Inhumans III#6 the exact same image was seen as the third one at the top of this profile. IMO Naanis was one of them, but it stays unconfirmed.
