    Well, now, I'm only attempting posts, not greatness. ;p

    But I'm thinking this Page A Day calendar will be inspiring as far as the posting. I feel every day I turn without Namor will only make me preserve more.

    I'm hoping for a solo. With plenty of support, i.e. talent and publicity. I really don't understand why they haven't given him more chances. It's been almost TEN years since the last one.

    And yes, Everett's Namor is amazing, but that piece he did for his son shows alot of love. It is gorgeous.

    I really do wish they’d push Namor as much as they do other characters. There’s so much potential in an underwater kingdom. So much of our world is unexplored, and the mythology that writers could play with is near limitless.

    I wish they would also, since it has been almost TEN years since we got a Namor solo. But I think the movies and the TV dictate the comics now. Plus, the editors seem to have some odd, to me, notions about Namor, like he works best as a supporting character - which is completely untrue. Or that the underwater stuff is unrelatable -- again, untrue. I'm hoping the Aquaman movie can show editorial just how wrong they are.

    I will always love Namor and his world. I don't always get to the threads or the books regularly, but I try to follow as best as possible.

    I would absolutely die for a Namor and Doctor Doom team up!!! They have such a great frenemyship and are so entertaining together!

    Also what really makes me scratch my head is; the further I dived into past stuff about Namor and seen just how many writers, or artist want to do a Namor solo, (even drawing up stuff for marvel and expressing their interests in getting on a solo book) and Marvel keeps denying them. Like out of the number of people who want to write Namor he should have had more comic on goings?

    If Marvel had said yes each time then we would have had more sub-mariner comics, but they keep pushing him as a side or supporting character, deflecting him to team books etc. It really has been almost ten years since Namor the First Mutant and I worry that after Invaders he will be put in the background again.

    From what I see it's not that there is NO ONE willing to write Namor over the years, it's just that Marvel and the powers that be don't want to invest in his character at all.

    Glad you found the new thread, Oberon! Without the solo, it is sometimes hard to follow Namor's appearances, that's for sure.

    Their fights were some great slugfests, and I loved their bickering in Defenders.

    The first time I saw Namor... I don't remember. I know it was before Marvel Ultimate Alliance, and I already know about his attraction to Sue before then, but that game was my most memorable first experience with his character and world.

    I don't remember who was the boss in the Atlantis stage, but now that I read DC, the name that came to mind is just Orm, because the story is the same. Throne and heritage fight.

    The name has something that has to do with Shark. Maybe.

    I love them when they get together, they are so much fun -- though it does usually come to an rather ... disagreeable end.

    That is pretty much it, IMO. Especially when you see other characters repeatedly get solos. Or seeing Prowler, Slapstick and Foolkiller getting solos, no slam on those guys, but they have never supported an ongoing, while Namor languishes without a book -- it is clear it's editorial. Again, I think that's going to be the biggest benefit of the Aquaman movie. It will change the minds of the PtB about what people will actually buy.

    Welcome to the thread, Restingvoice! I've always thought that far more people are introduced to Namor for the first time in a game than in the comics. Which is why I'm repeatedly disappointed that Marvel won't find a way get his rights back for at least the games. He's been a part of several comic book based campaigns that the games use, and they always substitute someone for him.

    It may have been Attuma, though one of Namor's rogues IS Tiger Shark. Oh, wait. Is this him in the game?

    Thank you for welcoming!

    Attuma and Tiger Shark! Yes! They're fought together.

    What about his rights? Oh is it Sony?

    More like Universal. But Marvel says different things. Basically they don't seem to have the full rights to Namor for other media, like games and movies, and worse, don't seem interested in pursuing them.

    Yep, Attuma and Tiger Shark are some early Silver Age rogues for Namor, though some interesting things have been done with both. Doctor Doom made a deal with Attuma and resurrected him one time, IIRC. Oh, and oddly enough, Marvel DOES seem to have the rights to those two. They were in the Quest for the Black Panther cartoon recently, though modified.
