Nagala is a Lemurian sorceress, a descendent and heir to Naga, who had for centuries ruled Lemuria and worn the Serpent Crown, a magic item empowered by the Elder God Set. Nagala helped Attuma as part of the team Deep Six in fighting off Namor the Sub-Mariner and the Defenders. She also fought Doctor Strange.[1]

Nagala successfully held off Doctor Strange with her Serpent Crown magic, but in the battle, Strange outmaneuvered the Nagala with the help of his teammates Hellcat and the Silver Surfer, and the rest of Deep Six were quickly defeated.[2]

Doctor Strange took Nagala's Serpent Crown before teleporting away, and Namor returned to the throne of Atlantis. Nagala later formed At'la'tique a group of undersea terrorists who seek to destroy air-breathers. They worked with the Fathom Five. Nagala escaped capture when Atlantean troops attacked teams former secret base.[3]


Nagala possesses the conventional attributes of Homo mermanus: gills that extract oxygen from water, superhuman physiology to withstand extreme pressures and temperatures, and acute vision. She can swim at approximately 30 miles per hour. She can remain out of water for approximately nine minutes before beginning to suffocate. However, she can operate on the surface by wearing a water-filled helmet or using a chemical that enables her to draw oxygen from the air.


Nagala wears the Serpent Crown, which provides mystical abilities.
