But he would remember this day. And he would repay the cost - with interest.
Lemurians: A green-skinned race of amphibious humanoids who once lived in the Pacific and worked in direct opposition to Atlantis. After a particularly brutal war, which they lost, the Lemurians were trapped in their last standing city, completely isolated from the outside world. Atlantis controlled all trade to and from the city as well as their access to magic. They have remained thus, barely subsisting after the only portal granting access to the outside world - through Atlantis - stopped working thousands of years ago. They have been twisted by time and evolution, physically and mentally, though they have never lost their hatred of Atlantis.
Attuma the Warlord
Attuma is a Lemurian warlord, vicious and cruel. He manages to rule a small band of the fish-people through a combination of strength and intimidation. He hates humans and Atlanteans with equal fervor. He is somewhat insane like most Lemurians, but in a more cunning fashion. He has enhanced strength and stamina similar to Namor’s (adaptation to life deep underwater) and he's Lemurian so he's scaly and fishy etc.
In August 2015, a portal was accidentally opened, leading into the basement of the mansion. Those Lemurians who made their way through the portal were subdued, and later handed over to SHIELD for safe-keeping. The device which was responsible for the portal was destroyed. In April 2018, the Lemurians took advantage of a magical flux and escaped. Led by their warlord Attuma and with various genetically-modified creatures (such as brainwashing squids) at their disposal, they began attacking boats around the Bermuda Triangle which resulted in another confrontation with Namor and various X-folks. While many of the Lemurians were killed, Attuma managed to escape, vowing vengeance on Namor and the dryskins.
