Stingray (Marvel)
Real Name: Dr. Walter Newell
Search for 'Stingray (Marvel)' on Amazon

Stingray uses an armor originally designed for underwater exploration. The suit can safely operate in depths up to 1200 feet. It has a unique oxygen diffusion system based on fish gills.

The suit grants Newell superhuman strength and durability to handle underwater conditions. The suit is able to swim at high speeds underwater. Newell can also glide when not in water. Its main weapon is a potent electric blast.

Stingray has been an ally of Namor for a number of years.

Walter designed a unique suit for exploration. He took the name Stingray after basing some of its design on manta rays. He was ordered by Edgar Becton to bring Namor in to investigate the disappearance of water from Earth's oceans. Stingray reluctantly did so, but later let Namor leave.

He was also targeted by Iron Man (Tony Stark) during the Armor Wars until Stark determined his suit did not contain any stolen technology.

Stingray joined the Avengers when they assisted him against the Lava Men. He and his wife became the caretakers of Hydro Base and offered the Avengers use of the facilities. Hydro Base has since been destroyed.

After the reformation of the Avengers following the Onslaught battle, Stingray assisted them in fighting Morgan le Fay. He later became a full-fledged member of the Avengers when Kang the Conqueror attacked Earth.

Newell continues his research and occasionally still acts as Stingray. During the Civil War, Stingray joined the Anti-Registration side led by Captain America. After the war, he was pardoned, registered and joined the Initiative.

While on a cruise with his wife, Stingray fought Tiger Shark when the villain attacked the ship. The fight took both combatants into the water, where they were confronted by Namor. Namor wanted them both to join him or die. Stingray tries talking to him, but is attacked and barely survived.
