History

The Octo-Meks were originally created by Ikthon to aid his ally Attuma conquer Atlantis. Dr. Lemuel Dorcas later redesigned them to aid his allies Attuma and Tiger Shark. The Octo-Meks were used to round up the people of Hydrobase after they were knocked out by ionic rays. After Namor was captured, Doctor Doom attempted a rescue and had to contend with the Octo-Meks as he made his way toward Hydrobase. Namor eventually defeated his enemies, and Dorcas seemingly died with an Octo-Mek fell on top of him.[1] The Octo-Mek that killed Dorcas was moved along with Dorcas deep below the ocean by Namor and Stingray. The Octo-Meks somehow developed sentience and created a robotic duplicate of Dorcas that kidnapped Stingray's wife Diane Newell. Stingray and Namor mounted a rescue mission and defeated the robot by crushing him beneath his ally Orka.[2] Years later, the Octo-Meks were confronted by the Sentry and the New Avengers when Attuma invaded Manhattan.[3]
