Atlantis Under Attack

Season: 1
Episode Number: 4a
Season Episode Number: 4a
Production Number:


Voices: John Vernon (Namor), Peg Dixon (Lady Dorma), Bernard Cowan (Narrator, Vashti the Elder), (Attuma), (Councilmen), (Guard).

Plot: Attuma has taken Neptune's Trident and has framed Vashti the Elder to take the fall!

Review (Warning! Spoilers!): I believe that this episode is a completely new story made by Grantray-Lawrence Animation. I'm not sure where the scenes were taken from or if they are all-new drawings. If anyone can correct me and tell me from which issue this episode is taken, please leave a comment!

I wish Grantray-Lawrence Animation made more of these new stories, especially with the other segments of the Marvel Super Heroes. They do a great job coming up with ideas and the timing and directing is much better than their adaptation episodes.

This episode marks the animation debut of Attuma who is one of those versatile villains who appears in the books of many different heroes, but it is Namor who is his main challenge. Attuma discovered a prophecy that said that Atlantis would be taken by force, and Attuma thought that he was the one to do it!
