History: (What If? I#29/3 (fb) BTS) – Namor lost his memories and was left an amnesiac by a vengeful enemy and drifted, eventually arriving in New York's Bowery, where he resided in a flophouse as a derelict.

(What If? I#29/3) - Johnny Storm traveled to the Bowery, having just quit the Fantastic Four, but avoided staying in the same flophouse as Namor, feeling it was a dump.

For reasons that he did not understand, Namor was drawn to the sea and he was soon found in the flophouse by Captain McCandless, who convinced Namor to become one of his sailors on a quest to find the center of the Earth. Five years passed and Namor found himself called Mr. Smith, as McCandless had nothing else to call him. As part of McCandless' crew, Namor soon found himself sailing through the strait between Greenland and Baffin Island. During a supply run with the local Inuit tribe, Mr. Sharkey, McCandless' first mate, insulted the "Blessings of the Ice God" (as told by the Inuits) and was beaten by McCandless. Sharkey did not take kindly to this and tried to attack the Captain but was stopped by Namor, who was promoted to first mate.

Returning to the ship, Namor continued sailing and McCandless' crew eventually grew restless and mutinied. They attacked Namor and Starkey went to kill the Captain. Namor fought the rest of the crew while the Captain managed to mortally wound Starkey but the Captain was killed by a shot in the back and his lantern caught the wooden deck on fire. The Captain, going even more delirious as he died, believed he had discovered the entrance to the center of the Earth and threw himself overboard before Namor could stop him. As the the ship exploded, Namor was rendered unconscious as he was blown overboard and days later, he was discovered by the Inuits of Baffin Island and anointed as their "Lord of the Sea." Due to the concussion from the boat explosion, Namor's memories were suppressed even further and he was worshiped as a god alongside the Inuit tribe's other "god," "the Lord of the Frozen Ice" (secretly a frozen Captain America), his memories never restored.
