    Default IMPERIUS REX! Namor the Sub-Mariner Appreciation 2020

    Welcome to a thread for appreciating Marvel's FIRST Superhero!

    MATT FRACTION
    on Namor in his Defenders run

    Quote Originally Posted by Matt Fraction
    "Water covers 70-some percent of the Earth's surface. We've seen more of outer space than we have of the ocean, and aside from the fact that he is functionally the emperor of Earth in terms of geography, Namor has a geo-political understanding. He has a perspective on scale that these guys don't," Fraction explained. "Namor has been wrapped up in some awful big stuff that the other people haven't. He's going to be sort of like Alexander with the Gordian Knot; he's the shortest path between two points because he's got this very practical experience with realpolitick that the rest of them don't have."

    Ruling Atlantis, one of the oldest kingdoms in the Marvel Universe, gives Namor other benefits as well, including access to some of the kingdom's rare historical documents that offer up information on what life on Earth was like thousands of years ago.

    "Namor has access to all this stuff that humans don't and can go places they can't go. He's forgotten more things than we'll ever know," Fraction remarked. "Plus, he has his foot in so many different worlds. His unique biology as an early mutant led to his membership in the X-Men. He covers both the mutant base and the Atlantean base -- not to mention he's very well connected, having been a member or so many other super teams."

    The Sub-Mariner is a very passionate and proud individual, character traits that often lead to interesting dynamics in the super teams he joins. One thing Namor is especially passionate about is strong women.

    on the Sub-Mariner in his book Marvelocity

    Quote Originally Posted by Alex Ross

The surface world had mistreated his people and he was going to get revenge. The arched Spock eyebrows, the Dracula-like features; he is so cool.

    2019 had more ups than downs for Namor, but it was great to share them with fellow Namor fans here. Hoping 2020 will be even better. And of course, can we get a Namor solo comic?!?!

    That's cool! I always like their relationship in Defenders. I need to call my LCBS.

    I love how Val can read Namor so well! Those two should at least team-up as friends, if not try dating.

    Sadly, my understanding is that they killed off Valkyrie in War of Realms , so Jane Foster could take her place. Haven't bothered reading War of Realms or Foster's book, so I'm not sure of the details.


    Val and Namor looked like they were going to start a relationship, but Namor still wasn't over Lady Dorma's death, so it never happened.
