    is it really harder to film a black panther movie in africa than the CGI they need to render in asgard and outer space??

    Hmmm. I don't see Eisner's signature. I'm not sure, but I think it's done by Marie Severin. And the rest of the signatures are from the Marvel Bullpen.

    The article was about new guys they could add to the Avengers, so they left out the Fox characters, as well as current Avengers.


    Yes, there's alot of stuff that the MCU folks say that seems .... not thought out. Though, to be fair, some of the stuff that is reported is questions asked in passing, instead of in a real interview -- like when Dante said the Invaders were going to be in the first Cap movie. The Wakanda thing was pretty silly, from what I recall.

I'm also fond of his appearances in Matt Fraction's Defenders series.
    No surprise, I agree 100% with the bolded.

    Yes, that was one of my complaints about Sub-Mariner Revolution, also. So much potential, mainly ignored. It did have the best last page, however.

    I meant to say about the Namor the First Mutant series, that there some nice nods to Namor fans, and it was probably appreciated by us, than newer readers.

    I'm glad to see a few things on that list have already contributed to my appreciation of Namor. I particularly enjoy his interactions with the Invaders, and yes, those Bucky/Namor interactions were awesome reads.

    I'll start off with Saga of the Sub-Mariner and Sub-Mariner Revolution to start off. I already have The Deep on hold at my LCS until I can find a slow week, so I'll be busy with my Namor reading for the foreseeable future haha.
    Great! Let us know what you think of it, though I hope you enjoy it.

    I enjoyed Fear Itself The Deep, but it's not typical Namor, since he spends most of it under a spell.

    Glad to hear you enjoyed the Invaders stuff... though now I remember I left off most of that, in my rush. I do love Bucky and Namor, together, even better than Namor and Cap.

    Yes, like FI: The Deep, I held off recommending that, because it wasn't really Namor as we know him. Plus, Sub-Mariner the Depths had very little of "Namor" actually in it, even if it captured the mythological essence of the character best.

    So can anyone answer just a few questions about Namor for me? Just so I can get a feel for his backstory?

    1) Where is his current standing as ruler of Atlantis? Does Atlantis even exist anymore?
    2) When did he go from Prince to King?
    3) Where is his standing with the X-Men? Are they fallen out or just separated?
    4) What's the mythology behind Atlanteans? Do they worship gods like Poseidon or no? Do they have a pantheon of gods?

    Namor, Namora, Namorita in A-Force.
    He was a king. But then you and all the rest of your kind threw his people to a pack of wolves called the Cabal. And now his city is ash... which is all I now offer you.

    Yes, that was a nice surprise. Funny that Namor is the only male hero with any powers in A-Force so far.

    Avengers World today... awesome issue for Namor. spoilers:
    Even Thanos gives him a compliment of sorts, and I'm not sure how many people we've seen physically go toe-to-toe in a one-on-one with Thanos and draw blood from the Mad Titan
    end of spoilers

    I can only think of this and Drax spoilers:
    who was artificially redesigned specifically to kill Thanos
    end of spoilers.

    I've said it before and I will swear it up and down until the end of time, Namor IS Marvel's Kal-El.

    There is a Prince Namor in the domain Arcadia? YES!
    Also, if 616 Prince Namor the very first marvel superhero died in Secret Wars # 1 then, R.I.P. 616 Namor McKenzie 1939-2015

    He definitely did not.

    Is anyone else having a problem with this site today? It's incredibly slow, I'm having scrolling issues, and now my there's a typing delay that's causing me all sorts of problems. Ugh. Maybe it's Firefox.

    Good questions, some of which we are still waiting for answers.

    1) Hasn't been answered by Hickman, though there were surviving Atlanteans who wanted to fight Proxima. Continuity says there are other colonies and cities of the Atlantean empire that weren't even mentioned by Hickman.

    2) This is a recent naming thing that has no change in his role. I think it was Fraction who changed it for some reason. If Namor was going to be upgraded, it should have been to Emperor, like his Grandfather. Though there have a been a few times that he's been called Emperor. The titles of Atlanteans were complicated by some writers. I've always preferred Prince Namor to his King Neptune.

    3) Hasn't been dealt with at all by the X-office or Hickman. It's like he ceased to exist and was erased like a heretic pharaoh, after AvX. The first time we saw him interact with an X-man since was the recent Magneto.

    4) There's some cool 'ancient evil' and Atlantean stuff that has been used before, but Atanteans worshiped Neptune since he helped them fight the 'ancient evil' and lived amongst them. Sometimes their rulers claim to be the heirs of Neptune and vice versa. Some other Greco-Roman myths have shown up, like Proteus, but I don't think they are worshiped like Neptune. Set / Naga also have followers, but they are basically the equivalent of Satanists amongst the Atlanteans.

    If you like psychological horror, you'll love the Depths.
