Marvel's Avengers Assemble Wiki

Attuma is an Atlantean Warlord, a former member of the Cabal, and the enemy of the Avengers and Namor the Sub-Mariner.


The Avengers Protocol, Part 2[]

Attuma was offered to join Red Skull's Cabal, a team of super-villains meant to destroy the Avengers.[1]

Depth Charge[]

Attuma leads his fellow Atlanteans into riding a tidal wave into Manhattan as part of his plot to conquer the surface world. Iron Man fights Attuma while the other Avengers fight his soldiers. Attuma then heads into the flooded subways as Iron Man changes into his underwater armor to follow Attuma. Captain America and Hawkeye discover strange devices as Iron Man detects a lot of them underground as they are set off in a plot to sink Manhattan by destabilizing the bedrocks of Manhattan. Attuma and his soldiers end up fighting Captain America, Hawkeye, and Hulk, while Iron Man, Falcon, and Thor hold back the tidal wave with an energy barrier. Hulk charges towards Attuma as Thor helps to fight Attuma's soldiers.

Hulk then engages Attuma, where they are evenly matched until Attuma punches Hulk through the energy barrier that Iron Man and Falcon created to hold back the tidal wave. Thor and Iron Man then attack Attuma, where their attacks couldn't harm them. When Attuma and his soldiers retreat into the oceans to find out why Manhattan is rising, they, alongside Iron Man, find Hulk holding up the island. While Hulk is buying the Avengers some time, the other Avengers fight Attuma, who then escapes into the ocean with Thor to prevent Hulk from succeeding. Attuma has the advantage in the water over Iron Man and Thor until Hulk gets angry enough to prevent Manhattan's sinking, as well as throwing a boulder at Attuma. Attuma is thrown onto the land, beaten up, as Hulk manages to defeat him.[2]


Personality and Traits[]

Attuma is a proud and arrogant warrior who loves to lead his troops into battle or conquest. He believes very few can match his power and calls Thor and the other Avengers weaklings, while taking a personal liking to the Hulk and attempting to prove he is stronger than him in nearly every encounter they have. Attuma believes the surface dwellers are inferior to him and thinks the world in water would be perfect for all life.

Powers and Abilities[]


Atlantean Physiology: As an Atlantean, Attuma possesses a fully amphibious physiology suited for extreme underwater pressures, superhuman strength, speed, agility, durability, and longevity. Attuma is seemingly more powerful underwater, as the water amplifies his natural strength by strengthening his muscles, skin, and bones, allowing him to be nearly unchallenged while fighting opponents.

  • Superhuman Strength: Attuma is by far the strongest of all the Atlanteans and has demonstrated several acts of high superhuman strength, such as matching the Hulk while the ocean was sinking into Manhattan; their blows destroyed windows and created powerful force waves that effected the waves. Attuma effortlessly overpowered and defeated both Thor and Iron Man's powerful armor sets while underwater, as it seems his strength is increased while underwater. He flipped over a SHIELD jeep and launched the Hulk with a powerful punch, which caused the Hulk to break his teammates' energy barrier, which was blocking any more water from coming into Manhattan.
  • Superhuman Speed: Attuma can move much faster than the finest human athlete and swim with fine grace and agility. He out-speeds all Atlanteans while underwater, as well as Iron Man's armor and Thor.
  • Superhuman Stamina: Attuma's stamina is above that of a normal human; he can fight for hours and days.
  • Superhuman Agility: Attuma's agility, balance, and bodily coordination are enhanced to levels that are far beyond the natural physical limits of the finest human athlete.
  • Superhuman Durability: Attuma's body is several of times denser and more resilient to pain than a normal human's. He has withstood multiple blows from Thor's hammer Mjolnir, the Hulk's physical strikes with no damage, and no-selling Iron Man's repulsor blasts.
  • Superhuman Endurance: Attuma's body is several of times denser than a normal human's.
  • Superhuman Reflexes: Attuma's reflexes and agility are similarly enhanced and far superior to those of the finest human athlete.
  • Superhuman Longevity: Like all Atlanteans, Attuma's lifespan is greater than that of a human, and he ages at a slower pace. He is 140 years old.
  • Superhumanly Acute Senses: Attuma's senses are more enhanced than a normal human.


  • Expert Hand-to-Hand Combatant: Attuma is a highly skilled combatant in both armed and armored combat.
  • Expert Swordsmanship: His particular specialty is the use of edged weapons.







Season 1[]

Season 2[]

Season 5: Black Panther's Quest[]



  • Attuma was voiced by Dwight Schultz in the first two seasons and Dan Donohue in Season 5: Black Panther's Quest.
  • Attuma returns in Season 5, Black Panther's Quest. Presumably to appeal to audiences but true to Marvel Studio's continuity issues, Attuma is no longer a warlord but a disciplined, reformed leader who is at peace with the surface world and discusses treaties with the Avengers. After multiple conflicts, he agrees to help Black Panther overthrow the Shadow Council but is shot with his own trident by Erik Killmonger in front of his daughter, Ellana, who swore revenge.
  • Attuma does not appear in Season 3 or Season 4.
  • In the comics, Attuma originally possessed class 40 strength while completely dry and class 60 strength while underwater, but in the show he has shown class 100+ strength, strong enough to go toe-to-toe against the Hulk. He would become severely weak while separated from being underwater for over an hour, but now he has such a need.
