(Sub-Mariner I#64 (fb) - BTS) - After Dr. Hydro's defeat at the hands of Namor, the Council of Elders chose to isolate his creations, the Hydro-Men. They deemed these human-Atlantean hybrids were not ready for freedom and ordered them remanded in a prison camp to prevent them from mingling among the Atlanteans.

(Sub-Mariner I#64 - BTS) - Prince Namor was enraged when he saw the Hydro-Men's prison, because it reminded him of Hitler and his concentration camps. Namor decided to free the Hydro-Men so they could explore the sea for themselves. Afterwards, he summoned the Council of Elders into session.

(Sub-Mariner I#64) - Madoxx, along with Raman, Vashti and several other council members, met with Namor. They were still convinced it would be unnatural to have the Hydro-Men among the general population of Atlantis. Namor deemed that the prattling of senile fools and decreed that rehabilitation measures would begin at once. Moments later, their meeting was interrupted by the sudden arrival of four orange-skinned representatives of Zephyrland. Namor greeted the foreigners, while the councilors were taken aback at their king welcoming yet another group of different colored intruders. The people of Zephyrland asked Namor for help against the warrior queen Virago who had taken over their country.

(Namor I#55) - While Madoxx debated with Thakos and Vashti over surface world relations, Seth interrupted the debate with news of Llyra being captured. Llyra approached the Council of Three with Llyron, who she claimed was the son of Namor and thus the heir to the throne of Atlantis. While the Council was still reacting to this news, they received word that Tiger Shark and Tamara Rahn were approaching the gates. Madoxx watched as Thakos, thinking Llyra behind the attack, threatened her, then marshaled his forces to attack Tiger Shark, ignoring Vashti's reminder that Tiger Shark had been a recent ally of Atlantis. After Llyron and Llyra defeated Tiger Shark and Tamara Rahn, they strung them up on a fence outside the city to Thakos' approval. Madoxx and the Council of Three then watched a battle between Namor and Llyron that leveled part of Atlantis. Namor took the unconscious forms of Tiger Shark and Tamara Rahn and departed.
