Cartoons Comics & Toons


Namor the Sub-Mariner is a fictional character featured in Marvel Comics, and one of the oldest superhero characters. He was created by cartoonist Bill Everett in 1939.
Like the subsequent DC Comics’ character Aquaman, Namor is an undersea hero originating from the mythical kingdom of Atlantis. Namor is the son of a human sea captain and a princess of Atlantis (although the Underwater kingdom was left unamed until the 1960s). Possessing the super-strength and aquatic abilities of the "Homo mermanus" race, Namor was alternatively portrayed as: a good-natured but short-fused superhero; and, a hostile invader, seeking vengeance for perceived wrongs that misguided surface-dwellers committed against his undersea kingdom. He was thus arguably the first comic book anti-hero.
Although his stature has lessened, the Sub-Mariner has remained an historically important and somewhat popular Marvel character. A Sub-Mariner feature film is in development for a scheduled 2007 release.
