When Knull finally reached Earth The king in black, many of Marvel ‘s heroes have already fallen under its influence and expansion. Only a few personalities remain who can gather against Knull’s forces, even to the numerous current enemies of the Avengers and their allies. This includes Namor, who fought against the Avengers and set himself up as the main enemy of the current Avengers. Despite his recent conflicts with the surface world, the arrival of Knull and his symbiotic army forced the King of Atlantis to turn to his former allies in the Avengers for solutions. Unfortunately, that includes the release of one of Namor’s greatest weapons – the mysterious Black Tide.
When Iron Man finds out he knows about the Black Tide despite Namor’s attempt to hide their existence, Namor points out that it’s because the Black Tide is an incredibly dangerous element, and their re-closure will be incredibly difficult to achieve. But Iron Man replies that they really have no choice. If they want the world to fight the Black Tide at all, then they must overcome the army of symbiotes that Knull brought with him. This requires every army I can muster, including Namora forces. This teases how dangerous the mysterious Black Tides are. More information about Black Tide will be explained in the upcoming Name: King in black miniseries by Kurt Busiek, Ben Dewey and Jonas Scharf.

But Namor eventually agrees to the plan, diving to the bottom of the Mariana Trench and facing three mysterious figures in the waters.
On top of the dangerous threat, the Black Tide also seems to be more than capable of fighting through the blackness that Knull brought to Earth. It could be one way for Namor and the Avengers to repair the bridges that have been set on fire between them, with Namor having the opportunity to call on its former allies to the surface to help combat any threat posed by the Black Tide. But the question remains how deadly the black tides are and what could make Namor so careful with them to rid them of even something dangerous like Knull.
