Deep Six is the name of two different groups of sea-oriented characters in the Marvel Comics universe.

Namor's Deep Six[edit]

When Namor the Sub-Mariner was missing and framed for crimes in the surface world, several of his Atlantean allies set out to find him together. The impromptu group consisted of Stingray, Andromeda, Tiger Shark, Tamara Rahn, and Triton. They battled against the Avengers and then broke up shortly thereafter.[1]

Attuma's Deep Six[edit]

They first appeared in Defenders v2 #7 (September, 2001). Membership of the group included Attuma, Nagala, Orka, Piranha, Sea Urchin, and Tiger Shark (now a villain again).

When Namor and his teammates in the Defenders arrived on the outskirts of his homeworld Atlantis, they were confronted by the Deep Six and Attuma's Army forces. However, before it could come into conflict, the Defenders all teleported to safety wanting to make a proper strategy first. (also, the Defenders had more important business to attend to first)

A few days later, the Defenders decided to take another try. The heroes utilized a battle strategy that kept Attuma and Nagala busy, while the other members could be defeated more easily. Hulk refused to cooperate with this plan and confronted Orka alone, but the rest followed through. The Defenders eventually easily defeated Piranha, Sea Urichin and Tiger Shark as well. Nagala was left, but she eventually got knocked out by the Silver Surfer. Namor took care of Attuma and the group was finally defeated.

With this defeat, the Deep Six apparently decided to disband as of Defenders v2 #11.


This group was named after the other Atlantean group known as the Deep Six, who debuted in Namor the Sub-Mariner #58 (January, 1995).
