Synopsis for "The World Destroyers!"Edit
This story is reprinted from Sub-Mariner Comics #38.
The Sub-Mariner is summoned to the surface by his friend Betty Dean who asks him for his aid to stop a group who call themselves the Fatalists. A group with no official allegiance who have been trying to sell a death-ray weapon to any country willing to meet their price. However none of the governments of the world, not even communist run nations want to purchase the gun due to the fact that it is too dangerous and could wipe out the entire planet. Betty also explains that it is believed that the scientists who invented the Fatalist's weapons was an alien, but she has dismissed the notion as ridiculous. However, Namor refuses to help stop the Fatalists due to the fact that he does not believe that they could ever pose a threat to Atlantis and leaves.
However later, Namor begins to reconsider their possible threat when suddenly the Fatalists approach him and offer to sell him the weapons, asking him to use them to wipe civilization off the map. Refusing to commit planetary genocide, Namor attempts to attack them and the Fatalists try to slay him with their death-ray and seemingly slay Namor. They toss his body into the ocean and then travel to a small island nation. There they take the rulers son hostage and the Fatalists force the boy to write a ransom note ordering his father to buy the death-rays or his son will be killed. When the ruler refuses, seeing the security of the world more valuable than the life of his son, the Fatalists decide to kill the boy with their death-ray.
Suddenly, the Sub-Mariner arrives and they try to use the death-rays on him again, but find that they do not work. Namor easily disarms them explaining that the water restored his strength and then turns the death-rays on the Fatalists seemingly killing them. Namor gathers up the death-rays and returns the boy to his father and then heads back to Atlantis. Along the way he swears he could hear voices in the air but ignores them and continues on his way. Unknown to him, the Fatalists, are being pulled back to the Pluto to face their king for their failure. Namore meanwhile has returned the oceans, deciding to use the death-rays to conquer the surface world. However when he tries to use the weapons against some sharks as a test find that they no longer works. He abandons the weapons returning home empty handed.
