    I've always thought Greg Pak had a soft spot for Namor, even he if he mainly does alt u Namors. His What If story and his recent Marvel Comics Presents story were amazing. His Toshiro Mifune half Japanese Namor, as well as his sea god Namor were cool, too. Though ... he was also a big Storm fan, and I don't think that worked out so well with his ongoing for her.

    Someone who I think also likes Namor, and is aware of some obscure history, is Dennis Hopeless Hallum. He gave Namor a small role in Nara's history in Avengers Arena. He was the only one who used Namor in War of Realms. He did the Pietro Namor thing in Secret Wars House of M (though I think we can also thank Kris Anka for that). And digging deep, he used Pirate Namor in Spider-Woman's alt universe adventure! That was perfection, what with his relationship with Patience Drew!

    Yet another movie rumor for Namor. Do other characters get so many movie rumors?

    UPDATE: Marvel Studios is also casting a “General” to go alongside the ruler “David” (still leaning towards an Asian actor).

    They quote no sources, though it sounds like they are looking at casting calls. And they go on to speculate (wildly) that this is may mean Namor for Dr Strange. I think it far more likely it is for Shang Chi (possibly Eternals) and has nothing to do with Namor. David???

    I assume it's a reference to the biblical king.

    That was my first thought also, but that just reinforces my belief that it isn't Namor. If it was referring to Namor, it seems it would have been a Greek king. It could be referring to the David and Goliath story, like this character is dealing with an oversized threat in comparison. I was thinking Gilgamesh might be a possibility, for the Eternals, but they've already cast him.

    While I don't think there are any clear analogs between King David and Namor, both are flawed protagonists that can simultaneously be viewed as a hero or villain depending on the point of view of whoever is telling their story.

    Awesome!

    I hope so too! It certainly can't hurt.

    Yep! I thought it was a nice nod. Though in my headcanon, Jessica is a descendant of Namor.

    I don't know. I think David is supposed to be universally beloved, despite his flaws. I mean, he IS Jesus' ancestor.

    But then ... there was that Bathsheba thing.

    And Llyra would LOVE to cast herself as the Queen of Sheba.

    And then there's Absalom.

    Hmmmm. This is looking more promising.

    When I heard the code name "david" my only thought was, please marvel dont make Namor, Nix. You know from that terrible 2004 script. I really disliked that whole script, the only thing i would have kept was those cool described eye effects for a future film but i would throw everything else out.

    I thought this was going to be released on the 80th anniversary, i.e. August 31st, but it appears some stores already have the Funko Namor! So, keep an eye out, your store may have it tomorrow... or maybe at the end of the month.

    I think they both look great! And yes, that is a 500 on Namor's box. It's taken 499 Funko Pops for us to get a Namor.

    I can't see that script flying now. Especially after the Aquaman movie. Whether we like it or not, I'm pretty sure MCU will take it's cues from modern Namor and he'll be snarky and arrogant.

    I've really enjoyed it, for the most part. It's been worthwhile in floppies ... and trades, for me.

    Awesome issue of Invaders today. Some great stuff (Yes! Bucky!). And some stuff I'd have rather have NOT seen yet again (Sue??? Again?), but at least Zdarsky didn't make it too painful.

    Such a great page! Thanks for posting it Thor-El!

    I'm pretty sure this is a scan of an original book, since Namor's hair is red. I love that panel where's kicking the dirt / snow. And things NEVER change for Namor. Betty working her wiles on a willing Namor, even if he "sacrificed my stuff and my Atlanteans fighting for you" and the whole, "I'm tired of fighting." LOL!

    And readers new to Golden Age comics always point out how much better Everett's art is to most everyone at that time. He's sorely underappreciated nowadays.

    I'm mixed myself on the issue but mostly bc I would have paid so much to never see Namor/Sue anything anymore, like I really hate the Namor/Sue/Reed triangle and wish Marvel would let Namor move past it! Other than that, everything else was very compelling and thank goodness it looks like the newly made atlanteans might get reversed. Bucky and Namor interactions are always great.

    My store already told me they have my funkos on hold! I'm picking them up on friday!
