Powers/Abilities: As an Atlantean Namora possessed the ability to breathe underwater, as the Crown Princess of Atlantis she was torn between her loyalty to her brother Namor and her love for peace.
(Marvel Mangaverse: Eternity Twilight (fb)) - Namora met with Dr. Bruce Banner who was working for Baron Strucker on the first energy well. She was very impressed with Banner's knowledge and his ability to influence her brother Namor.
(Marvel Mangaverse: Eternity Twilight (fb) - BTS) - Later that day, having fallen in love with Banner, she spent a very romantic evening with the scientist.
(Marvel Mangaverse: New Dawn) - Several years later after the Blackout Wars, Hydra would try to get Banner to work for them again. To achieve this, Baron Strucker visited Namor's palace several miles underneath a castle along the coast of New York. Also a resident of the castle, Namora witnessed Strucker giving her daughter Namorita the soul gem as a present. Irked by the villain's presence, Namora quickly ordered her daughter to leave. Namora told Strucker her brother had been waiting and then quickly sought out a secret area from which she could overhear their conversation. Strucker successfully angered Namor by telling him Stark was once again constructing the energy well in violation of the peace treaty they'd signed following the Blackout Wars. Namor swore to have his revenge and rule the surface, crushing one of his palace's pillars to prove his might, much to Namora's shock. Torn between her loyalty to the prince and her love for peace Namora choose to alert the authorities and left with her trusted orca Kiko. When that very evening Hydra's forces had successfully kidnapped Banner in a submarine, he in his anger summoned the Hulk (Banner was a conduit to the Ethereal Realm) and thus crushed the submarine just as Namora and Kiko swam by.
(Marvel Mangaverse: Eternity Twilight - BTS) - Namora saved Banner from a watery grave.
(Marvel Mangaverse: Eternity Twilight) - She returned Banner to her vessel and quickly used a lung beetle to suck the water out of Banner's lungs and inject oxygen back in his system. Banner regained consciousness but didn't seem to recognize his lover (thanks to Toni Stark suppressing his memories). Shocked he didn't remember her anymore she explained how they had once met and had romantically been involved, Namora then went on to explain she had fallen in love with him. Before the two could kiss they were disturbed by a psychic shock that gave Banner his memory back. The two decided to head to the authorities at top speed until they saw a flying man approach their vessel, it was Doctor Strange who had come with a heavily injured Toni Stark (wounded while fighting the towering Hulk monster). Strange left Toni Stark on their deck to recover and explained Banner had been the cause of the Hulk monster. Banner then ordered Namora to take him back to Stark Island. While the battle against the Hulk monster was at its peak Namora and Banner had returned to the island in time to witness how the recovered Toni Stark was killed by the Hulk. She then had to witness how Banner ran towards another woman. In the closing moments of the battle, Dr. Strange used Banner as a conduit to summon Thor who single-handedly defeated the Hulk and Dormammu, after which Banner perished and Namora witnessed his and Toni's souls departure.
Comments: Created by Ben Dunn.Due to the Asian specific nature of the Mangaverse reality, it goes without saying that while characters might look similar to their 616 counterparts, they most likely will have distinctly different names, codenames or powers. Therefore we will only list the names when they have been used in the comics.
In this reality Namora was Namor's sister unlike Earth-616 where she is his cousin. Therefore it's also unrevealed if Namora's parents are Princess Fen and Leonard McKenzie, although that seems very likely.
Profile by MarvellousLuke
Namora has some connections to
Namorita was Namora's daughter, a young and impressionable soul that lived beside her mother in Namor's palace that lay along the New York coastline. She was familiar with Baron Strucker who would regular visit her uncle and would bestow her gifts such as the famed Soul Gem.
--Marvel Mangaverse: New Dawn
Note: It's been unrevealed if Namorita was the result of cloning or Namora's biological daughter. She also rather resembled another aquatic heroin, Marrina who didn't appear in the Mangaverse. The Soul Gem Namorita received from Strucker could have been an early set-up for any future storylines if Ben Dunn had gotten the chance.
Kiko was Namora's trusted companion, she presumably used the orca to hold on to while traveling great distances. Kiko sensed Hydra's submarine had blown up and was the first to find Dr. Bruce Banner's body floating in the deep sea.
