Over 2,000 years ago Atlanteans started worshiping Set. Poseidon fought, banished Set, and destroyed his Atlantean cult. He later lived among the Atlanteans for a time as their protector, and left a copy of his trident with their ruler upon his departure. The copy came in the possession of Namor.[citation needed]

Namor used the trident to inflict a deadly blow to Suma-Ket. [4]


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

  • Water Manipulation - Ability to control any body of water, create water elementals, speed ships and other water vehicles with water, create fogs and storms of high intensity, summon waves of water to propel him at great speeds, and create earthquakes by increasing water pressure.
  • Mystic Formation - A unique power to transform objects, willing subjects[citation needed], and even the wielder[citation needed], to any desired form with added abilities.


  • There are two tridents: the original with Neptune, the other with Namor.[citation needed]
  • 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.[citation needed]
