    Default IMPERIUS REX! Namor Appreciation

    A thread for appreciating Marvel's FIRST Superhero!






    MATT FRACTION
    on Namor in his Defenders run

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kingdoms in the Marvel Universe, gives Namor other benefits as well, including access to some of the kingdom's rare historical documents that offer up information on what life on Earth was like thousands of years ago.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

    Folks are going to want to read today's NEW AVENGERS 17.


    Also, are folks going to repost stuff from the last thread?


    I am reposting at least this, the last post in the old thread, from WhitOro. AWESOME find!

    It's weird, without the colors I find the page works a little better.
    I agree. I do like the black and white page better, for some reason. Not so sure about that hair cut on Namor, but otherwise, really like what Schiti did with his features. Much better than his Journey Into Mystery cameo.

    That is an awesome image. Also what did I miss, came in from volunteering and found everything was gone?

    That's exactly what happened. Jonah wiped out the forums and is starting them again, with a zero tolerance policy in place. It's in the first thread / announcements.

    Don't know how I missed that. Also enjoyed Namor's banter in NA#17, could do with some of that wine right now.

    I'm glad to see this thread back.

    Long live Atlantis!
    We are the Dora Milaje. We are the daughters of the 18 tribes of Wakanda. We are the teeth of the Panther God. Out of 10,000 years of sweat and bloodshed and battle are we born. We are the women of this ancient land. Deadliest of the species. And our time has come!

    I was the same. Quite stunned they did this, but at least we can still access the old forum for a week or so, and mine it for goodies.

    Nice art from V. Schiti ... glad to see this thread back. Even if I don't follow as often as I'd like to...

    I believe in magic and science independently, not one and the same.

    Since April is Namor' anniversary month, I wanted to do a 75th Anniversary thread for him ... may still get to it.

    I have been LOOKING for this thread!

    Would you like to me to repost my recent scans?

    I also started reading Gillen's UXM run today.
