    Synopsis: Marrina has fled in shame, Namor follows her, and Northstar follows him. Marrina suspects that she has been impregnated (see iss. 16. Note: her race is here designated Plodex). Namor finds her and decides to marry her and raise her brood as his own. They are then attacked by Marrina's mate (iss. 16), which she is uncontrollably drawn to. Alpha Flight attacks them both.
    Marrina overcomes her genetic programming and rejects her mate. This restores her from her monstrous state, and it turns out she was never pregnant but just fertile.
    Alpha Flight kills the other Plodex, and all repair to Namor's villa, where his followers have already gathered under Lord Vashti. Namor declares it his new kingdom, Deluvia, and weds Marrina.
