NAMOR > Reed Richards

The first mutant. 

One of the first Marvel characters. 

One of the BEST Marvel Heroes. Also… One of the BEST Marvel Villains.

I never realized this connection, but the cover of this issue reminds me of the artwork for a certain classic punk / hardcore / metal record (the uncensored inner sleeve is what I’m referring to, of course). Check out the images around Namor. The ills of his world indeed.

1. Beating the snot out of Reed Richards and the Thing.

2.  Beating the snot out of Attuma (or some other evil Atlantean)

3. Atlantis crumbling (how many times did that happen?) 

4. Pretending to be homeless / “Memory loss”

Zero bids so far. I can’t think of a better way to spend $10 then to open the bidding here. John Buscema is a legend.

    The first mutant? I never heard that. Or maybe never considered it. Although I don’t know enough about Namor or his origins to really have an opinion. I’m weak on the FF side of the Marvel ball.
