Namor is Kinda Useless in Next Week’s Invaders #1

Next week sees the relaunch of Invaders, and a preview of the issue brings us back to World War II, the good old days when people still knew what to do with a Nazi. But Namor, the King of Atlantis, isn’t really living up to his hype. The preview shows Namor, weakened because he’s a little thirsty, try and fail to save a soldier. By the time his ally Captain America (who also used to know what to do with Nazis instead of being one back then) finds him, this is what Namor looks like.

What happened to Imperius Rex, dude? Get it together, Namor! It’s only the first issue!

Of course, the cover shows modern goth Namor, so as you can see, the whole story won’t be set in the past. AV Club had this one as an EX-X-XCLUSIVE. Invaders #1 hits stores next Wednesday, January 16.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
