They were a strike force formed from the "Fury of the Sea", a group of undersea terrorists who seek to destroy air-breathers.

To meet their goals, they even went as far to team up with Baron Strucker and Hydra.[1] The team later attacked the Persian Gulf and the coast of China.[2]

The Thunderbolts counteracted the team, forcing the Fathom Five to retreat.[3] After repulsing a force of Atlanteans sent to capture them,[1] the Fathom Five attacked New York again. The Thunderbolts against opposed them, and after a long battle, the Five were defeated. Llyron and Sea Leopard managed to escape. Bloodtide, Dragonrider, and Manowar were taken into custody.[4]
