Synopsis
The Brain and the Knife have joined forces to steal a shipment of ambergris from Captain Cole. Unfortunately for them, Namor and Namora happen upon their cabin hideout on Taboo Island after one of their regular swimming matches. The criminals get the drop on Namora and capture the pair, but Namor effects their escape by tipping over their parrot's water dish, renewing his strength enough to break his bonds. The two then swim to Cole's boat in time to capture the criminals and turn them over to the harbor police.

Indexer Notes

This doesn’t appear to be the same “Brain” that tried to frame the Human Torch in Marvel Mystery Comics #18.
