Even as a child, Namora knew shenwas special but didn't realize just quite how special, all that changed when a Shark attack that should have proved fatal ended with the Shark tore in half for his efforts. Namora developed her powers further for years, and saw them tested when U-man came to conquer Atlantis. She humiliated and killed the would be conqueror woth unnerving ease, and with their original queen dead in battle they begged Namora to lead them in her stead. That she did.
After becoming Queen of Atlantis, Namora participated in fending off the Nazi's during World War II and eventually met Charles Xavier. She was the only human he tolerated and stood bu the Mutants side during thei struggle with human acceptance. She, quite literally, fought all non-mutant heroes who threatened them and defeated them soundly. She even beat up Magneto and the bad mutants, eventually fuling both the land and sea to bring unity under 1 cause. The cause of Atlantis.
After being watched by interdimensional beings, namora is plucked from her reality by being of alien nature. Informing her that her abikites and experience make her invaluable in yhe protection of the multiverse from unseen threats, they give her the option to protect the multiverse. Uninterested, the tries to combat them only to be ported away with the other chosen few. Namora fights them initiallly, but after they calm her the group of on to accomplish their task.
Namora runs into Namor and the 2 scuffle equally, neither able to best the other until they are stopped by The fantastic 4. She gives pause, reminiscing when she had killed the Fantastic Four herself, and wondered how they hadn't changed. Namor takes this time to blindside and getvthe Fantastic 4 to trap her. Eventually she is freed and she fights Namor before they all realize sthe goals of the multiverse are bigger and they all go off on their missions.
Over the next few adventures, the Queen Namora really warms to her teammates, and even finds a friend in some. Overall, she becomes a becomes a big part of the Exiles, the powerhouse and hot-headed big sister that they never knew they needed. She only really runs into a problem when Apocalypse's son Nemesis enters the fray as an enemy. Even though she loses to his might, they later come to be allies as they meet an even bigger foe, King Hyperion.
King Hyperion challenges the whole group to a fight, and dominates them all, including Namora. Namora was previous injured in battle by Sunfire, but even injured she manages to hydrate herself and surprise King Hyperion and land the best blow of the group... snapping his neck!! She resorts to gloating (in typical Namor fashion) thinking the battle is over, and it ends, but not on the way she expected. She is blasted with bone melting heat and felled by the tyrant.
