"From the Stars, the Stalker," The traitorous priest Kormok decries that Namor must perform the Ritual of Renewal and dip Neptune's Trident in the flames that spawned it; Of course, it's a trap. Kormok has made a deal with an alien race that seeks to steal Earth's water and needs Namor for an as yet unknown reason; The Stalker attacks Namor, and Namor proves to be too much for the Stalker; Unfortunately, the Stalker activates a funnel beam that sucks Namor out into space.
