Namor, the Old-Timey Butt Kicker

Have you ever reflected on just how long Namor has been wrecking cities and then doing weirdly kind-hearted stuff that makes us all forgive him? He’s a fully developed character in the respect that his motivations are his own and writers aren’t obligated to make him fit a mold. He does good; he does bad. Just like all real mf’ers. Salute to Namor, the realest dude.

Here’s an expensive appearance by our man. He throws a car at police in this issue. ACAB.

But, he also extinguishes a woman on fire! He’s got layers and facets.

More Submariner!!!

Please excuse our Namor preoccupation here at ComicNoize.

He’s just that cool. Let’s talk about this, a vintage 1960’s Marvel poster featuring the man himself, Namor.

1. Can you picture someone tripping out in their garage, staring at this poster? It’s a little bit weird to think about this guy charging at you in the midst of an altered state of mind.

2. Imagine showing up at the house of your former high school crush, who’s now happily married with children, and just taking her out for a date. Now imagine that’s not a house, it’s a SKYSCRAPER. And you’ve done it so many times that you brawl the husband on the regular. And the wife still will go out for the night with you. She can’t deny the feelings. And you just revel in this. THAT’S HOW NAMOR ROLLS.

3. What’s with the cape in this poster??

4. He’s the King of Atlantis. And on top of that, he doesn’t have blue fins or prominent gills. He can throw on a suit and boom~ just a sharp looking dude with slight Euro trash leanings.

5. The first mutant. Currently he’s throwing the moves on Emma Frost, aka the blonde significant other of the leader of the X-Men. No bigs.

6. No, really. What’s with the cape?

7. He’s gone toe to toe with every hero in the known world – and still they come back to him in their time of need. And who is also one of his main “go-to” pals? Just Dr. Doom.

Namor rules, ok?

I Wish They’d Put Prince Namor On The Tube…

Oh wait, they did.

Of course, the only way you’re gonna see it is if you still own a VCR, or if you get sketchy and buy one of the many bootleg dvd copies floating around the ‘bay (see what I did there? Subtle).

On a related note, in 1993 or 1994, I used to tape songs off of a local music show on Sunday nights, focusing on all bands from the Boston and Providence areas. One of these songs was about Namor; it may have been a version of the cartoon theme but hearing it, I don’t think so. All I remember is that the hook went “NAMOR the Sub Mariner, NAMOR… the Sub MArinnnERRRR duhna nana duhna nanana na duhna nana duhna nanana na”… I remember literally nothing else, other than that there was also a band called Are We Dead Yet? on the tape with it, but that little snippet has been stuck in my head for years. If anyone has a clue, for the love of Attuma please help me out. For that matter, any one with any Are We Dead Yet? info, I’d dig that as well. These mysteries have been haunting me for years now…
