Miss Atlantis (Namorita "Rita" Dale) is an Amalgam of Marvel Comics' Namorita and DC Comics Miss America. When reporting on a museum exhibit, reporter Rita Dale had an odd dream-like vision when standing in front of a statue of Neptune, the Roman god of the sea. Rita hallucinated that the statue came to life and told her she was actually the reincarnation of the ancient Princess Namorita and gave her the powers drawn from the magic of the sunken city of Atlantis. Rita suddenly found that she had wings on her ankles that allowed her to fly and possessed superhuman strength. Rita soon learned that she could even breathe underwater and cast "spells" that warped the molecular structure of matter. She created a costume and became the superhero known as Miss Atlantis and even joined the Freedom Defenders. Rita later learned that she was actually an Atlantean/metamutant hybrid named Namorita, who was the cousin of the Aqua Mariner and had been abducted and experimented on by Project AIM who gave her the power to warp molecular structures.Project AIM wiped her personality and gave her false memories when they thought their experiment had failed.
