Namor, Really Just an Undersea Softy? Next Week’s Invaders #4

Namor the Submariner is known for being a curmudgeon of the seas, always scowling and shouting “imperius rex” and trying to start wars with the surface world and whatnot. But underneath his gruff, chiseled exterior, is Namor just a big softy on the inside? This preview of next week’s Invaders #4 shows another side of Namor, a side the cover deems “shocking,” a side where Namor is like a doting uncle to the daughter of his World War 2 buddy Randall, moving in with his family and doing… this:

Eventually, Namor had to return home to Atlantis… but is he on the verge of tears here? Awww!

Even later, when Namor was wandering the world as a drifter with amnesia, prior to being found by Johnny Storm in the Silver Age, he still managed to run into Randall’s daughter, named after Namor himself, and show himself to be an all-around nice guy.

It’s a side of Namor we don’t see often… and maybe a connection that can help pull him back from his new goth villain ways.

We’ll have to see when Invaders #4 hits stores on Wednesday.

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.
