Namor’s loss is Alpha Flight’s gain, as Marrina recently evolved into a giant fish monster, got killed, then resurrected into an icon for mermaidkind. Currently still serving with the team, I assume, she wears a boa made of seaweed. Amazing.
The whole run of Generation Hope was designed to try and throw us all off the scent, and suggest that Transonic WASN’T actually a mermaid. But you cannot hide the truth from X-Men fans forever! And ultimately her true form was revealed – she’s a flying, crystalline, maths-loving mermaid!
If you want a mermaid with more attitude than most, then Caleb Goellner’s self-published Mermaid Evolution! is the place to go. Filled with enough rad happenings to make Adam X fall off his skateboard in shock, it’s a delightfully manic comic.
