Armour/Suited BP vs. Namor:

Namor is described as 'one of the most powerful beings in the planet in scan 2:

Namor is beaten around a bit and it seems as if he doesn’t really want to fight back, BP’s suit saps moisture, when Namor falls into water the fight ends quickly:

The Sub-mariner is my all-time favorite. I don't have the comic book knowledge to evaluate all of his modern matchups, but Namor's domain is the ocean. Especially in the early appearances, he has his own enemies in his own world, mostly "amphibeans" like himself. Then he has his conflicts with "the surface men". He fought Nazis and Japanese imperialists in WWII.

A large part of his intrigue and the lure of his comics is this aquatic setting. When his character was devised there was no continuity and he wasn't meant to fight against the pantheon of mutants and super heroes. This stuff was improvised later, along with the scale of his powers.

The continuity back then, with him, was such that he suddenly had no wings on his ankles for approximately one year of publications (1954). Then half way through one issue they are ambiguously drawn in random panels, until the next issue they are officially re-introduced in a flashback story from his childhood.

The graphic novelties of his character, as well as his assorted "super powers", orient him as an outsider in the Marvel Universe. He's somewhere in-between an atomic-age cartoon hero and that of classical mythology. There would never be such a minimalist design for a super hero in the Marvel Age. Some modern characters are more simple IN THE FLESH, but all of those examples are covered up with colorful costumes and insignia. Meanwhile Namor is just a guy with exaggerated facial features, swimming around in his underpants. Eh, and he has wings on his ankles.

Warning Sub-Mariner - Hercules: Strength/Formiddablity Comparison

Herc(who is unable to break namor's hold) responds "If thou art truly the strongest in the sea, then I shall bring the ground up to meet thee(attempting to undo namor's hold by shattering the earth below, causing him to lose his footing)

Namor claims He's stronger than Herc underwater(Incredible Hulk #107)

Namor claims once more that he is stronger than Herc underwater(Incredibles Hercules #122)
http://i401.photobucket.com/albums/...ercules122c.jpg



In that issue(Namor the Submariner #58), Herc ran up and suckered Namor along with the avengers....I believe herc, vision, thor(with his hammer), and entrantress all took a shot at him before he knew what was going on........namor still had the strength to snatch Herc up with one hand and keep him contained(he did not wish to fight)

then there are the other two examples of Namor simply stating his superior strength underwater......all three of these examples are much, much more recent than that silver age scan, but if they are all somehow insufficient, how about this?:

Avengers V1 #40:
(please log in to view the image)(please log in to view the image)(please log in to view the image)

Herc shows Namor up on land, overpowering him and tossing him to the ground(Namor's obviously losing strength though from being on land, as he mentions so). So Namor decides to use the cosmic cube to evelope them both in water.......Namor quickly proceeds to manhandle herc, grabbing either an arm or his head(can't tell) and a leg and bending him. Herc apparently even starts to lose stamina fighting against namor's hold(check text). Anyway, Namor decides it's not fair to use the cube and returns them to dry land.When properly hydrated, Namor and Herc stalemate on land(wasp even says "neither can defeat the other)

Hey there. I posted this question elsewhere but someone mentioned it was misplaced, so I figured you awesome, die hard Namor fans might know the answer. Here goes. Hope you have a great memory or at least a great collection of Namor comics!

One of my all time favorite scenes was at the end of a Namor story. Namor had been battling several of his arch enemies including, I think, Tiger Shark. Attuma may have been there and one or two others. Someone...I think it was his wife Dorma had been killed (although this didn't occur in the story I have of her death in Sub Mariner 37). The last page was a full page shot of Namor cradling [whoever she was] in his arms, looking upward toward his enemies with a face twisted in rage. The only narrative on the page was a phrase I can never forget:

"...And Namor looked up."

I get chills to this day, maybe thirty years later. Thing is...I CAN'T FIND this comic.

-I checked through my entire Sub-Mariner series, 1 to 72.
-I checked all of Namor's appearances in Tales to Astonish.
-I checked the Prince Namor series.

Nothing.

-I BELIEVE the story was drawn by Sal Buscema, or maybe John Buscema.
-I BELIEVE Namor was wearing the blue suit...but that might not be.
-I remember that the next issue...I remember there was a long line at the comic store almost as long as the issue following Gwen Stacy's death, when the next issue came out but there was apparently a new creative team (I think Don Heck or someone equally awful), that produced a disasterous follow up to the cliff hanger. I remember everyone at the comic store was pissed.
-I BELIEVE it was in the mid to late 1970s...or MAYBE the very early 1980s.

Does ANYONE know in what issue this amazing single page happened? Please help me find this!

It's going to fail I think. His last two mini-series didn't sell very well which sucks because Namor is Marvel's first hero.

They're going to have to take a different approach I think......maybe going back to what used to work, because he's had popular books in the past.

I hate when writers kill off characterz to try and bring meaning/attention to their story arcs...as if they wont revive them eventually. Also, thats literally exactly what hyperion did to Namora in the ultimate universe some years ago. At least try to be original.
