  1. Ok. Superhero movies have officially peaked and begun a decline.

    Confirmation will be 2008’s “POWER PACK!” movie, which will probably be a musical, as well.

  2. Why do I think this movie will be less Lee and Kirby, and more “The Man From Atlantis”?

  3. A couple of notes.

    First, the fight between Namor and the Hulk in the Defenders was one of the best moments in Marvel history. Namor was a common member of the quirkiest, okay 2nd quirkiest the Champions were the quirkiest, superhero teams ever assembled.

    2) Namor was awesome in the Marvel Supervillain Team-Ups where he continued his battle with Doctor Doom.

    3) The Invaders…need I say more?

    4) Namor is one of the original Silver Age Anti-heroes and Marvel’s first mutant.

    5) Namor was one of the FF’s premiere foes.

    6) The reason he made such a great foe was that his motivations were exactly as described in the bit you clip, he fought against polluters of the sea. Aquaman did too, but in the DC Universe.

    I might concede that Namor’s movie might be heavy handed regarding environmentalism, he certainly has the gravitas.

  4. I also can’t believe that Kingdaddy could dis Patrick Duffy so. “Man from Atlantis” was my favorite show as a munchkin.

  5. Kingdaddy: because you are an astute observer of scifi pop culture. And while I, too, watched “Man from Atlantis” as a tot, let me join in the dissin’ thereof.

    Christian: you make my point-in all those cases, Namor is a supporting character, not the main character.
