Namor is the Atlantean king of Atlantis.



Namor, King of Atlantis, tired of the surface dwellers polluting his oceans, and began contemplating whether or not to attack the ground above, or simply leave them be. After kidnapping Invisible Woman of the Fantastic Four, Namor gave her a choice, stay as his queen, or he would attack the surface.

Betrayed by his army after they attacked earth, Namor helped the Fantastic Four save their city, and Namor returned to Atlantis to rule once again.

Some time later, Namor again fought the Fantastic Four with the help of the Kraken. Together they managed to fight off the beast and escape. The four recounted this tale to Dick Clark.

At some point he joined the Avengers but left. His portrait was in a hall along with several other notable figures such as Thor, Captain America, and Iron Man.


Namor the Sub-Mariner returns in Avengers, but this time he needs the Avengers’ help. A barbarian called Attuma has overthrown Atlantis, and he’s threatening to invade the surface world.

Attuma created a device that created earthquakes, causing massive trouble for both Atlantis and the surface world as well. The Avengers come to Atlantis and team up with Namor to fight of the coup orchestrated by Attuma.


Namor was voiced by James Warwick on Fantastic Four and Raoul Trujillo on The Avengers: United They Stand.

Namor appeared in concept art for the unproduced series Daredevil.

In the Comics

His full name is Namor McKenzie.

He is often called the world's first mutant. This is because he was the first character published to be considered a mutant, though he was not a mutant at the time. Later, other mutants including Apocalypse and Wolverine were stated to be older. The most recent interpretation is that he was the first mutant to go public.

He fought in World War II along with Captain America and Human Torch.

He has joined the X-Men.
