Alike in temperament, Wakanda and Atlantis are technologically superior international locations outlined by their secretiveness and fierce independence. These similarities have led to a number of clashes, and the stress between the 2 nations has just about at all times been explored by way of their leaders: Namor the Sub-Mariner and T’Challa, AKA Black Panther. Because the leaders of Atlantis and Wakanda, Namor and Black Panther have come to blows on quite a few events, and in a single case, the combat proved disastrous for each their nations. Right here’s a historical past of the battle between Wakanda and Atlantis.
Of their first main interplay, Black Panther encountered Namor whereas investigating some lacking Wakandans. After the 2 fought, Namor revealed he was on the lookout for traitors to Atlantis who’d escaped to the floor, and the 2 rapidly found out their objectives had been aligned. Their team-up proved profitable, however the encounter resulted in Black Panther recognizing the risk Namor may pose sooner or later. He opened a file on Namor, simply in case he ought to ever must take him down.
Tensions between Wakanda and Atlantis began in earnest whereas Namor was a member of the Defenders. After an journey in Tunnelworld, Namor, Physician Stephen Unusual and Bruce Banner, AKA Hulk, went to Atlantis to relaxation. Nevertheless, whereas they had been there, Black Panther pursued some Atlanteans who had stolen Wakandan know-how after they misinterpreted Namor’s orders to guard their nation. This resulted in a combat between Namor and Black Panther over who would punish them.
The scenario continued to escalate, and when Hulk jumped away from Atlantis, the Wakandans launched a retaliatory strike as a result of they mistook the Inexperienced Goliath for a missile. T’Challa alerted Namor as to what was occurring, and the Sub-Mariner deflected Wakanda’s assault, destroying the uninhabited Kiber Island, a protectorate of Wakanda, within the course of.
Though catastrophe was averted in that case, Wakanda and Atlantis almost got here to blows later when T’Challa blockaded Deviant Lemuria, one other undersea nation that was, on the time, allied with Atlantis. T’Challa did so to protect Wakandan sovereignty, as Lemuria wished to homicide a Deviant little one born on Wakandan soil. A skirmish did get away between the 2, with Wakanda preemptively firing on the Atlantean fleet when Ulysses Klaue manipulated the Deviants into attacking. Nevertheless, by the tip of the arc, the nations patched issues up and got here to a mutually agreeable resolution in regards to the Deviant little one.
Though these early battles ended rapidly, AVENGERS VS. X-MEN (2012) modified the connection between Wakanda and Atlantis endlessly. Throughout that crossover occasion, the X-Males discovered themselves at odds with the Avengers relating to what to do with the Phoenix Drive, which had returned to Earth. Whereas the Avengers believed the Phoenix Drive to be extremely harmful, the X-Males – led by Scott Summers, AKA Cyclops – wished to make use of the cosmic being to enhance the world.
On the time, Namor was working with the X-Males, and he ended up getting a chunk of the Phoenix Drive’s energy when it was divided between 5 mutants. As relations worsened between the X-Males and Avengers, the Sub-Mariner took the combat to Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, who had been hiding in Wakanda. The chief of Atlantis unleashed an enormous tidal wave on the nation that killed numerous folks. Quickly after, Namor misplaced his a part of the Phoenix Drive, and T'Challa made it clear he would by no means forgive the transgression. Wakanda and Atlantis had been formally at warfare.
After AVENGERS VS. X-MEN, Namor and T’Challa discovered themselves working collectively as a part of the Illuminati in that group’s quest to maintain Earth from being destroyed by Incursions from different universes. Ultimately, Namor requested T’Challa to dealer a peace between Wakanda and Atlantis. On the time, Shuri, T’Challa’s sister, was ruling the nation. T’Challa rebuffed Namor, telling him to undergo official channels as an alternative. When the topic got here up at a gathering of Wakanda’s leaders, T’Challa did certainly advocate for peace. Nevertheless, Shuri determined to pursue vengeance as an alternative, leading to a sneak assault that decimated Atlantis.
Across the time of the assault, Thanos and the Black Order started looking out the Earth for Infinity Stones, which introduced them to Atlantis. In his anger at seeing his fellow Atlanteans slaughtered, Namor brokered a peace with Thanos, then lied to the Mad Titan and instructed him he might discover an Infinity Stone in Wakanda. Thanos attacked the African nation, dealing a ton of injury within the course of. When Namor finally revealed his position within the occasion to T’Challa, the Black Panther swore to kill his outdated ally.
Namor quickly started working with the Cabal to destroy different worlds to protect his personal Earth from the Incursions, and that group ended up completely destroying Wakanda. T’Challa, for his half, almost killed Namor in response, however the Sub-Mariner survived and ended up within the Final Universe.
These Incursions set the stage for SECRET WARS (2015), and through that occasion, T’Challa and Namor ended up working collectively once more, finally forgiving one another for what had occurred. When Earth-616 was reborn following SECRET WARS (2015), Wakanda was restored to the way it had been earlier than the Cabal’s assault. Atlantis, for its half, was as soon as once more complete, although the Squadron Supreme – a bunch of heroes from worlds Namor had destroyed whereas working with the Cabal – killed the Sub-Mariner and destroyed his nation once more in revenge.
Like their nations, Namor and Black Panther share a number of key traits. The 2 Avengers are each cussed, have a powerful want to guard their homelands, and maintain grudges. Naturally, when their international locations go to warfare, the outcomes show catastrophic for everybody concerned.
