The Sub-Mariner first appeared in Marvel Comics #1 (Oct. 1939) the first comic book from Timely Comics, the 1930s-1940s predecessor of the company Marvel Comics. He was one of Timely's top three characters, along with Captain America and the original Human Torch. He appeared in his own comic book beginning in the Fall of 1941.

The mutant son of a human sea captain and of a princess of the mythical undersea kingdom of Atlantis, the Sub-Mariner possesses the super-strength and aquatic abilities of the "Homo mermanus" race, as well as the mutant ability of flight, along with other superhuman powers. Supporting characters included his cousins Namora and Dorma along with Betty Dean, a New York City policewoman. The original Sub-Mariner series ran until June 1949.
