    That was her Kymaera form. It's a result of genetic meddling; when she was artificially created by atlantean scientists, they used dormant genes of ancient atlantean warriors to make her a specimen of their kind. As a result, she would turn blue due to her emotional/psychological state. The current Namorita is from the past, as explained by Digifiend, so she hasn't gone Kymaera yet. But if she is the same character, it could happen any time now. I hope they bring this concept back, as I really liked it.

    As I understand it, she's Namora's clone and both Namora and Namorita are treated as being Namor's cousins, thus Namora is more like Nita's big sister, not her mother.
    I've always assumed that she is referred to as Namor's cousin because he is her first cousin once removed (someone who is the first cousin of your parent), but saying ''first cousin once removed'' is kind of a mouthful, so it's easier to just say cousin. I do think Namora is considered her mother, because regardless of the cloning aspect, it's the kind of relationship they shared while they were together. Much like Laura Kinney is technically also a clone of Logan, but she has been treated like his daughter over the years.

    Yeah, I hope they actually try to make sense of everything that happened to Nita over the years, but with this allegedly being just a mini, I'm afraid there won't be time for that.

    I miss the Kymaera form. Namora doesn’t need a mini-me .

    It's not like Namora gets used much either. At least Nita still ties her hair back (though it now seems to be a braid instead of a ponytail), which would make it easy to tell who's who if they appeared together. If she wore it loose, then she'd look like Namora.

    Though Laura's now been retconned (in All-New Wolverine). Sarah Kinney didn't just give birth to her, Laura has a significant amount of her genes instead of just the X gender chromosome (which explains why she doesn't look like Logan). Sarah's her actual mother. She's basically an IVF baby, and Logan really is her father.

    Ideally, they'll do the same with Namorita. The sooner all of Byrne's Namor is erased, the better.

    So Speedball finally got his cat back from Jim Hammond? And Thrasher's rocking a beard now, he reminds me of Ironheart's father (this series is by the same artist).
