The Atlantic Ocean is the second-largest of the world's oceanic divisions. The Atlantic Ocean occupies an elongated, S-shaped basin extending longitudinally between the Americas to the west, and Eurasia and Africa to the east.
A completely exhausted Hulk, aimlessly floating in the cold Atlantic, was recovered by a passing ship. Once his matchless strength returned, Hulk headed to a small deserted island, where he met the Sub-Mariner, who shared the same burning hatred for the human race, so they eventually joined forces to bring humanity to its knees.
Some time later, the Avengers called Namor through a nuclear-powered remote control undersea tv scanner asking him to become a member, but the Atlantean prince refused, even though he was honored by their offer.
While Sub-Mariner was heading for New York City on a mysterious mission, the Wasp agreed to travel back to the coast to warn the city, as Henry Pym had to remain on the still-smoldering exploration ship to finish the job, but she was kidnapped by Attuma. After she managed to send them a mayday, the Avengers, except for Hawkeye, came to battle Attuma's forces, but they were eventually captured, too.
Hawkeye borrowed an aero-sub from Reed Richards, found a beaten Quicksilver and together they helped defeat Attuma. Captain America sabotaged Attuma's controls, and the base collided with his wave machine, destroying it.
While Alicia Masters came sculpting to a shore front retreat along the Atlantic coast, she was visited by the Silver Surfer, who was suddenly engaged into a major battle by a jealous Ben Grimm. As the Silver Sky Sentinel increased his energy to atomic strength, the Thing took off on his Airjet-Cycle to move the battle over New York City and keep Alicia safe from the danger.
Somewhere over the storm-laced Atlantic Ocean, the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier, Gyrich and General Clarke called G.W. Bridge in to answer for the cost of his attempt to capture Cable using Weapon: Prime. Bridge stated that the mission did not concern S.H.I.E.L.D. and that it was sanctioned separately. S.H.I.E.L.D. seemed to have still taken on the bill and they told him that it was a complete loss, so Bridge then turned and quit S.H.I.E.L.D.
As Spider-Man was traveling to the Raft piggybacking a ride on the underside of an helicopter, a stray lightning blast hit the craft, causing him to plummet to the Atlantic Ocean, swimming through the ice cold water to reach the maximum-maximum security installation.
When Black Bolt confronted Thanos in hopes of preventing the Mad Titan's invasion of Earth in the search of his son, he unleashed a powerful attack that triggered a Terrigen Bomb and destroyed Attilan in the process. The resultant Terrigen Cloud released in New York City began to circumvent the globe, passing over the Atlantic Ocean and transforming a human of Inhuman descent aboard Flight SA 99. Crystal and the U.S. Army met the Boeing 737 when it landed in Miami to address any potential fallout.
