Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is the next big screen MCU release, coming to theaters in November. And while much has yet to be fully revealed about the film with the villain, there are constant rumors that confirmed cast member Tenok Hर्rta will play a version of Namor, with a back-to-back adaptation of the Kingdom of Atlantis behind it – all over Wakanda War.
Although we are the first to show that nothing has yet been confirmed about Namor and Atlantis’ participation in the Wakanda Forever, we are also prepared to admit that the rumors are interesting – and more or less credible – enough to find out why. And in the comic books, that’s how Wakanda and Atlantis went to war.
The lost kingdom
Although we won’t go into much of the history of Marvel Atlantis, TL: DR is like a real-world myth and its many versions that you’ve seen everywhere, from animated Disney movies to sci-fi TV shows. The Marvel Comics Empire of Atlantis was once a scientifically advanced but declining nation that was swept under water but continued to thrive by adapting to ocean life.
There are several explanations for how Atlantis sank into the Marvel Universe – two of which may be particularly relevant to the events of the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is given to the MCU film The Eternal and Thor: Love and Thunder.

In a more general account of the sinking of Atlantis, the Celestials are responsible for sending down the waves with the distracted kingdom of Lemuria during an event called the ‘Great Flood’, once they wiped out the Earth of sensitive life.
In the second, Zeus and other Olympian gods – who recently vowed to take revenge on the “superheroes” in Thor: Love and Thunder – listed the Olympian Poseidon for drowning Atlantis for just trying to enter the magic that the gods allowed.
Either way, since they sank, Atlantis has become a recurring enemy of the so-called ‘surface world’, their most famous king, Namor the Sub-Mariner, who himself acts as both friend and foe to them. Which live on the ground for years.
In fact, he’s also an Avenger – including now, when he was recently forced to reunite with the Black Panthers after their two nations went to war and Atlantis almost wiped him off the Wakanda map.
And we’re here to talk about …
This is not the first time in the last few years that Namor and Atlantis have declared war on the surface, but Avengers v. X-Men (Opens in new tab) And its follow-up Infinity (Opens in new tab) Probably the most devastating.
As mentioned in the title, Avengers v. The X-Men (or AVX, often styled) include the Avengers and X-Men, the global existence of the Phoenix Force, life, death, and rebirth that made Jean Gray famous during the X-Men: The Dark Phoenix saga. (Opens in new tab). In AVX, the five X-Men – including Namor, who consider themselves mutants – each get a share of Phoenix’s power.
During the resulting conflict, the powerful X-Men try to remake the world into their image using the power of the phoenix.

The Avengers, not taking pity on the idea, oppose it and in one of their battles, Scarlett Witch seriously injures Namor.
While Wanda is taking refuge in Wakanda, Namor goes against the other members of the so-called ‘Phoenix Five’ and attacks the entire Atlantis on Wakanda, using it to flood the ocean and level all the other parts of the hidden nation.
The Avengers rally around the Black Panthers and repel Namor’s troops – but only after heavy casualties in Wakanda.
And although this battle caused Namore to lose its Phoenix power – and the Avengers technically won the battle – it was not the end of the war between Wakanda and Atlantis.
Wakanda Strike Back
In the story of the aftermath of Infinity, Wakanda returns to Atlantis during the struggle between the Avengers, the Illuminati, and Thanos and most of the other heroes in the world against the Black Order as they invade Earth to kill Thanos’ secret half-eternal, half-half. Amanush Putra, Thane.
But while the Illuminati – of which both Namor and the Black Panther were members at the time – try to work together to stop Thanos, Shuri, then King of Wakanda, announces an attack on Atlantis to take advantage of Namor’s distractions.
Wakanda destroyed Atlantis just as Atlantis destroyed Wakanda in the past – but Namor is unwilling to accept Wakanda’s revenge attack.

So when Thanos knocks on the door of Atlantis looking for the Infinity Stone that Namor is hiding, Namor lies and sends Thanos and Black Order to Wakanda – beginning the comic book version of Battle of Wakanda as seen in the movie Avengers: Infinity War.
During the conflict between Infinity and Atlantis and Wakanda, both kingdoms were destroyed by the forces of Thanos.
Notably, Infinity is the same phenomenon in which the terrifying mist, the substance that empowers humans when they come in contact with them, is released into the Earth’s atmosphere, triggering a comic book version of Kamala Khan’s Ms. Marvel.
And of course, the result of Infinity, in which multiverse versus infiltration began to threaten the entire Marvel Universe directly बोला now talk to us… secret wars.
Avengers Vs. The X-Men is one The most impressive Marvel Comics event All the time.
