    I don't know; I haven't heard the term metrosexual in more than a few years. In fact, in its own way, it seems dated to me. I'm 62, btw.

    I work in public service and amongst a number of younger folks, 19 - 50s, with most in that younger demographic. I never hear the term.

    But despite that, I enjoy/have always enjoyed Namor's looks, except I was not a real big fan of the pony-tail and more 'savage' look in the '90s.

    LOL, I have been reading this discussion with amusement and I have to say I never thought of Namor as metrosexual. His hairdo started as just short with a widow's peak and it evolved into a more helmeted alien look but it seemed to me that gelled look was a result of his mutant genes, amphibian heritage or both, but not really gelled as gel would dissolve under the sea. I also don't think Bill Everett meant Sub-mariner to have facial or body hair at all because I don't remember seeing Namor with facial hair until he is re-introduced in the silver age Fantastic Four by Lee and Kirby and after that issue you never ever see him with facial hair until perhaps the 90's. As far as body hair, I have never seen Namor with body hair so I wouldn't say he shaves at all.

    Even though atlanteans are displayed with hair, I'd keep it only to their heads because body hair is a trait of mammals meant to protect them on land against changes in temperature and amphibians have totally different mechanisms.

    Yup...that Pony Tail was rancid. I blame the artist. More vascularity than Bane, fully pumped with his serum, to the bursting point, in a pressure cooker. Jae Lee was it? All wrong for Namor.

    He has as much body hair as a dolphin. Invisible, little transparent things maybe. They are both sea mammals after all. Not really an amphibian of the reptile type, although at one time it was speculated by Reed Richards that he breathed through his skin.Hence that dark blue suit in the 70s. But, he has a nose he breathes through on land. A dolphin comes up for air. He breathes underwater as well as land. Not coming up. Gills and lungs. And the hair...I just thought it was pulled back after he got out of the water and dried that way.At least
    originally.

    I know he is a mutant "these days." We always considered him a Hybrid in the Bronze Age. Father: Homo Sapien Sapien. Mother: Homo Sapien Mermanus. Child: Something else Hybrid. But, Marvel isn't the real world and times change. Definitely no Manscaping.

    The ankle wings on the character are a mutant atribute.

    Sub-Mariner #3 Jul 1968
    "On a Clear Day You Can See... the Leviathan!" Guest-starring Triton
    Continuing from Sub-Mariner #2...
    The Plant Man unleashes his monster Leviathan on England.
    Triton and Namor escape but are bound together and do their best to contain the Leviathan.

    They destroy it and foil the Plant Man's scheme.


    Namor resumes his quest for his arch-enemy Destiny.

    To me, whenever Prince Namor will make his MCU debut, Betty Dean is to be shown as well Like Peggy Carter was introduced in The First Avenger.

    Very cool information. Wasn't there a classic Namor stamp too?
