Over 2,000 years ago Atlanteans started worshiping Set. Neptune fought, banished Set, and destroyed his Atlantean cult. He later lived among the Atlanteans for a time as a mortal. Upon his mortal death he was buried with his Trident, this copy ultimately came into the possession of Namor.[5]

Namor was given a copy the Trident by Neptune after completing a series of quest to prove his worthiness for the Throne of Atlantis. [6]

Namor's original copy was broken by Jacqueline Trufaut using the copy she found in the ruins of Pontus.[5]

Namor used the trident to inflict a deadly blow to Suma-Ket.[7]


Neptune's Trident is in part made of Enchanted Adamantine while probably possessing numerous other properties many of which have yet to be completely revealed, the Trident is capable of many things centering but not limited to water-base feats.

  • Mystic Formation - A unique power to transform objects, willing subjects,[5] and even the wielder,[5] to any desired form with added abilities.


  • There are three tridents: the original with Neptune(implied), one left in Pontus,[5] and the other given to Namor.[6]
  • Either Namor doesn't use the Trident's full potential out of honor or he has little to no knowledge of how it works using it many times as simply a blunt object or a tool to get around quickly.[citation needed]
  • A human who spent years studying Atlantis was able to use the Trident's full power soon after getting her hands on it.[5]
