Mariner (Amalgam of Namor and Aquaman)

Mariner

Aquaman/Submariner amalgam


Power Level:
Game system: DC Heroes Role-Playing Game

Context

Amalgam Comics was a unique 1996/97 publishing project by DC Comics and Marvel Comics. It published a series of comics where the two universes had merged. Furthermore, the characters themselves had merged (“amalgamed” ) with their closest equivalent from the other setting, with oft-strange results.

Our Amalgam writeups are very old – they are contemporary to the event. Since it was 20+ years ago, it was just an amusing exercise in merging the characters’ stats to represent their likely new state.


Background

  • Real Name: Arthur McKenzie.


Powers and Abilities

Amalgam of Sub-Mariner, Aquaman, and possibly Lobo (weapon).
