Subj: Orka & Attuma - I know that they are dead but ...

Orka & Attuma - I know that they are dead but ... would it be possible to create a new villain with their combined powers ?

I think that Orka had great powers and that Attuma was fun (the underwater barbarian).

So, instead of making a new Orka who would be a simple thug, I think that it would be great to create a new underwater barbarian like Attuma, with the powers of Orka.

If you combine the two characters to make a new one, he could be a great villain.

Here is how I would do it :

A fellow member of Attuma's tribe is seeking to become the new leader of the underwater different people (Atlantis, Lemuria, ...).

He needs the power of the apex predator of the marine world, the Orca.
So he finds somebody to duplicate Doctor Dorcas' experiment.

I am thinking about this because I think that both Attuma & Orka were underused.

BTW, IMO, the Orca is one of the most beautiful animals on Earth.
Besides, they are one of the most intelligent mammals on Earth.
Even the biggest sharks won't have much luck against a pack of orcas.
That would be great if a cool character was based on it.

So far, both the Marvel & DC Orca villains have not been as charismatic as the animal they are named for.

Actually, I have an even better idea : Doctor Dorcas experiment would actually come from an hidden underwater tribe with the powers of the orcas.
Thus, actually, you had a barbarian tribe with their powers.

If you think about it, they could be the "Orcs" of the Marvel Universe.
