In the 16th century, a Yucatán tribe was victim of the smallpox brought by the invader Spanish conquerors. Fen, a woman of the tribe, pregnant from an Aztec mercenary spy, followed her Shaman’s orientations together with her village, and, in the attempt of curing the illness, ingested a peculiar underwater blue herb. However, the plant was infused with vibranium, altering the anatomy and biology of the tribe. The plant turned their skin blue and took away their ability to breathe air but allowed them to extract oxygen from the sea water, and soon, they stablished themselves in the ocean, away from the war and illness, to start a new life transformed into the first Talokanil. In this underwater world, Fen gave birth to Ch’ah Toh Almehen, but the effects of the herb she ingested caused her baby to mutate, being born with winged feet, pointy ears, and human-like skin color. After his mother’s death, Almehen visited the surface world and witnessed the atrocities of Spanish colonization, causing him to take some violent measures and, in this moment, he got the name Namor from his enemies. In the present, determined to protect his people, Namor felt threatened when the U.S. got close to finding out Talokan when they were searching for vibranium. Namor contacted the isolated kingdom of Wakanda, seeing it as another target to surface nations, and proposed a military alliance, but the Golden Tribe resisted to enter war against the world, and, as an answer, Namor led his people against Wakanda. With deep hatred to the surface inhabitants, and a strong resolve to protect his people at any cost, Namor is brutal and merciless. Although he is the ruler of Talokan and a literal god to his subjects, Namor is friendly and close to his people. Being a mutant, Namor is much different from his people, that can only breathe underwater; he can breathe both in land and in the water. His strength is proportional to the amount of water he’s exposed to, then, the closer Namor gets to water or inside of water, the stronger he gets, reaching a physical strength that can compare to Hulk’s. His dense skin, muscles, and tissues make him almost invulnerable. He also has superhuman agility, resistance, and reflexes, enhanced vision and audition, and a healing factor, and, due to his mutant nature, he ages more slowly.
Originally revealed at CCXP 2022, and presented in detail on the Inside Iron Studios Day show of February on Iron Studios’ YouTube channel, the underwater monarch of Talokan from the MCU is the first Iron Studios statue from Wakanda Forever, and it’s already available for Pre-Order. Soon, more news by Iron Studios about the Marvel Cinematographic Universe and much more.
