"They hope to exploit that, or at least find out more on Namor's end." The journey underwater places Namora at the forefront of the mission, naturally.

"[He's] about as happy as he ever is to see people from the surface coming down into his realm," Parker admits. "But having Namora with you is like having One Free Get Out of a Beating card-at least for the moment." That moment might prove very short-lived when the team confronts the Crowned Head of Atlantis about his dealings with Osborn while Namora remains stuck in between.

Which side she will ultimately choose remains up in the air. On the one hand stand her teammates and, on the other, as the writer puts it, "a chance for happiness."
