How would you rate Namor -as an Avenger- on a scale of 10?

Alex Trebek would probably give him a 10/10! Watch Jeopardy on March 1st and waited for the Youtube clip to be posted. He said the Sub-Mariner was his favorite comic book character when he talked to Joe about his 25,000+ comic book collection. Joe Friedman, from Charlotte, NC. Fun fact and good PR for Marvel, eh? \:\) How long before the King of Atlantis gets his own book again?

Namor Mention:

nb. Also, saw this Namor related Golden Age page https://pixhost.org/show/37/37910534_sub_mariner_36_10.jpg with an underwater race that looked (coincidentally?) just like (Plodex) Marrina. What post-FF#1 books have had this race included?

He's bad to blow up inhabited planets. So at least a 5.

4-ish, because he's not really committed. While he's around, he's a 9.

Depends on the writer. When Stern wrote the book, he was great in it, a true team player.


He's never been used for a long durations, Johns used him for only a few issues.

He's a five, but better as an invader.

I love Namor. I don't even think it is that hard to write good Namor. Stern, Johns, Bendis, Hickman, Fraction all gave us some sweet Namor moments, based around the simplicity of the character. I don't mean that in any bad way. Throw him into a team of Avengers that has no other flyers and I think he would work very well. Ever notice how hard it is to draw a convincing Namor? Maleev made him into a rat man. Most artists flatted his head too much for my liking. I'm better with writers than artists, but i think it was Deodato that nailed it.

Byrne and Buscema (John or Sal) drew a great Namor.

Honestly, I think Maleev is one of the few to really have trouble with Namor because he was purposely trying to go against the mold. Namor's "mold" is really one of the easier molds-- he's positively Vitruvian.

I do sometimes wonder about the head. Look back to the Golden Age, and his head is damned near triangular (almost as much as Pyramid Head). Is it wrong to make it "too flat?" Or have artists been wrong in making him too human? Is head shape one of his undisclosed powers? Is he really just a humanoid starfish?
