Residing in his underwater aquatic city 'Atlantis', Stromberg is initially seen early in the film where he congratulates two scientists on developing a submarine tracking system, ultimately killing them not long after they have left by blowing up their helicopter.

Stromberg later calls upon the services of Jaws and Sandor to eliminate anyone who comes into contact with a microfilm containing plans to the submarine tracking system.

Stromberg first meets Bond when Naomi brings him and Major Anya Amasova to Atlantis. Pretending to be a marine biologist, Bond has to think quickly when Stromberg tries to catch him out naming a certain type of aquatic life. After leaving, Stromberg issues orders that Bond and Anya should be killed.

Later after being swallowed by The Liparus aboard the USS Wayne, Bond and Anya with the help of Captain Carter and the other submarine crews take over and sink The Liparus. Using the wetbike Bond travels to Atlantis where he confronts Stromberg. After Stromberg fails to kill Bond twice, Bond doesn't make the same mistake and shoots him.


Karl Stromberg a billionaire from various shipping enterprises, lives in the underwater city Atlantis; a city capable of supporting a large number of people above or beneath the waves. Believing that humanity is corrupt and decadent, Stromberg plans to use the weapons of Armageddon (nuclear missiles) to destroy the world and create a new world order beneath the sea.

While Stromberg has a threatening demeanour, he like many of the villains throughout the Bond series, simply sits around issuing orders, pressing buttons and getting all of his henchmen to do the work for him. §
