Synopsis

Namor returns to Atlantis to find that Warlord Krang has taken his throne; When he spurns the affections of Lady Dorma, she turns him in and he is arrested by Krang as a traitor; Realizing that the only thing that will allow him to regain his kingdom and his subjects is the Trident of Neptune, Namor escapes to go and recover it.
