"Marvel's First Mutant," Prince Namor the Sub-Mariner, has enjoyed a rich an enduring history in comics. His stormy personality and intolerant and vindictive nature for the destructive acts of mankind have made him both friend and enemy to the human race. According to Wikipedia:

.
"Namor was born in the capital city of the Atlantean empire, then located off the Antarctic coast; he was born of the pairing of Atlantean Emperor's daughter and an American sea captain... Nine months later, a pink-skinned child was born among the blue-skinned Atlanteans. He was raised in Atlantis and, when he matured, would alternate between living there and adventuring in the oceans and on the surface. He became the Prince of Atlantis, and a warrior for his people."

"When World War II broke out, Namor put aside his differences with the surface world and fought alongside the team of Allied heroes that called themselves the Invaders. Namor was injured after the war and lived for a time in the Bowery district of New York as an amnesiac derelict who went by the name "Macin". During this time, the original site of Atlantis was destroyed by nuclear testing, forcing the inhabitants to move to a new location."

" After being awakened from his amnesia by Johnny Storm of the Fantastic Four, Namor discovered the ruins of Atlantis. Believing his people destroyed along with his city, Namor vowed revenge on humanity. After several attacks thwarted by heroes including the Fantastic Four and the Avengers, Namor finally discovered the new home of the Atlantean people. After being repelled one more time in attempt to seize New York with his empire behind him, he called off his now baseless vendetta.."

The model I've designed is patterned directly from war-era comic issues featuring the Sub-Mariner's earliest appearances. However, I have also included parts to allow you to create Prince Namor in his Silver Age form. I haven't had a chance to build this one yet - so it's still a beta. But I hope you enjoy assembling this Majestic Mariner!

Happy Modeling!!
The Professor.
