Powers/Abilities: Namora possesses superhuman strength beyond typical Atlanteans, enabling her to lift at least 75 tons; her skin is bulletproof and resistant to most other forms of impact, and her body can gradually overcome even the most virulent poisons. She can swim nearly 60mph and, flies at roughly the same speed via feather-like fins that form small small wings on her ankles. Prolonged dehydration(without any water contact or consumption), combined with repeated exertion, can reduce her strength and possibly kill her, although even slight contact with water will restore her. She possesses the normal Atlantean traits of a prolonged lifespan, body adaptation to deep underwater pressures, augmented vision to penetrate ocean depths, and specialized blood circulation to withstand freezing temperatures. Like Namor, Namora's lungs presumably contain oxygen-diffusing membranes, or lamellae, allowing her to extract oxygen from water as she inhales it; she can thus survive indefinitely either underwater or on land, but she must periodically make skin contact with water, preferably by immersion, to keep her powers replenished. Although Namora lacks the fully developed gills of typically Atlanteans, she presumably possesses vestigial, partially functional gills behind her ears that are nonetheless somehow essential to her respiration. Like her cousin, Namora has ankle-wings which enable her to fly.
Weight: 189 lbs.
(Giant-Size Marvel Adventures: Avengers#1 (fb) - BTS) - During the 1950's Namora was recruited to be part of a secret group of law enforcers arranged by the United States government. Alongside Marvel Boy, Gorilla Man, Venus, M-11 and team leader James Woo the group became known as the Agents of Atlas.
(Giant-Size Marvel Adventures: Avengers#1 (fb) - BTS) - In 1958, Namora and the Agents of Atlas received a visit from Kang the Conqueror of the Chronoverse. Kang revealed that Captain America was still alive, frozen in a block of ice in the Arctic, even providing the Agents with the precise location. The Agents of Atlas were unaware Kang had done so to remove the present day Captain America from the timeline, since the Avengers had repeatedly foiled his plans. However, upon arriving at Captain America's frozen location in the Arctic Sea they were about to free him from the ice when suddenly a dimensional rift opened. Through the rift Namora and the others witnessed alternate versions of themselves from Earth-7901 joined by Spider-Man, Storm and Wolverine who were Avengers of their own future (Earth-20051) pleading it wasn't Captain America's time to come back again. Although Namora thought it was a trick, Woo in fact believed them and choose to leave Captain America in the ice so he could be found years later by the Avengers.
(Marvel Adventures: The Avengers#23 - BTS) - Namora remained active throughout the modern age.
(Marvel Adventures: The Avengers#23 - BTS) - When the Avengers were abducted by the Collector, Captain America sought to recruit a group of new Avengers to rescue them. Namora, alongside other members of the Agents of Atlas popped up on his screen as possible recruits.

(Marvel Adventures: Super Heroes#15) - Namora joined She-Hulk, Hellcat, Blonde Phantom and Sun Girl to watch a movie award show on television. She-Hulk's cousin the Hulk had been nominated for best documentary in "Don't Look at the Camera: Three days in the life of the Hulk", he won the award.
