Origin and early years

Echidna was the Elderspawn[2] spawn of Ceto and Phorcys, and as such the granddaughter of the Elder God Set.[3]

She mated with Varcolac, she sired Angerboda, and with Typhon to birth Cerberus, the Chimaera, Orthrus, Ladon, the Nemean Lion, the Lernean Hydra,[3] and many other Greek monsters.[citation needed] She also sired the Snakes of Many Colors.[4]

Modern Age

After Atlantean King Namor changed his policy on the relationship between the ocean and the surface, he declared his territory off-limits to all but its native inhabitants. Echidna appeared as one of the members of the Defenders of the Deep, Namor's own super-team assembled to impose his will on the surface world's presence in the oceans.[5]
