Narvick was a member of the Atlantean High Council. The ruling council made decisions whenever the members of the Atlantean royal family were absent. In the year 1920, he was opposed to the fact, that Princess Fen had brought the surface man Leonard McKenzie to Atlantis, as it was believed that surface dwellers had intentionally blasted TNT on the ice above Atlantis as an act of war. Brother Narvick protested Leonard being among Atlanteans and lack of punishment for his "crimes", but was unable to override Fen's authority on the matter, even though he refused to acknowledge the marriage between Fen and Leonard, because it was not done under Atlantean law.

Narvick sowed dissent among the Atlantean people, but could not act, until Emperor Thakorr returned to his realm. However, the final insult to Narvick came, when Fen used her authority to have herself married to Leonard under Atlantean law. With the rest of the High Council on his side, he sent a call to Thakorr, to return to the realm. Thakorr was furious that his daughter had brought a surface dweller to their land and threatened to kill Commander McKenzie. However, further blasting from another exploration ship provided cover enough for Fen to help Leonard flee Atlantis and return to the United States. In response to this, Thakorr ordered Fen locked in the dungeon for the rest of her life. However, she was soon released when it became known, that she was pregnant with Leonard's child. Their offspring would grow up to be the Prince Namor the Sub-Mariner.[1]

Narvick's subsequent fate is unknown.


Narvick has abilities and traits that are typically common among members of the Atlantean race. Namely being able to breath under water, above human strength, the ability to see in the oceans murky depths and survive the crushing water pressures and temperatures of the worlds oceans. However, his strength is likely hampered by old age.

The account of events that feature Narvick greatly contradict the established origin of the Sub-Mariner. As such, it is unknown if Narvick actually truly existed. The tale that featured Narvick could be considered military propaganda by way of comic books that were commissioned by the United States government.[2]
