Listening to him, Marvel revealed to him that he knew about the Invisible man too and was aware of some of his acts. He exclaimed that the Invisible man was a deceiver who plays tricks on people. On hearing this, he was attacked by some kind of pain by the Invisible man as he was not able to tolerate mean things about him. Marvel then stood up and went off saying nothing further to the Mariner which left the Mariner to feel insulted. He felt that the Marvel was making fun of him by telling fake stories about the Invisible Man.
