Tom discovers the egg

During a powerful storm, he was swept overboard and became caught in the nets, with their sinkers pulling him under. As he sank to the ocean floor, he saw an egg, nestled in the mud. Reaching, it he pulled it free and it began to float to the surface, pulling him up. Returning to shore, he brought the egg home to his wife, Gladys, and grandson, Dan. [2]

Gladys broke the shell, and retrieved the tiny humanoid female that was inside. Gladys and Tom named her Marrina and raised her as their own. Marrina would later prove to have superhuman abilities and join Alpha Flight.[2]
