"I don't know how to please you Lord, but I think the fact I try to please you, pleases you."
I really would like to see Namora and Namorita and Namor all in his book at least once.
So, do you like the X-costume? I think it's pretty sleek, but I think he needs to lose the big x-buckle for something a bit understated, especially in New Atlantis, and I really don't like the collar.
But I have to say, the speedo is my favorite costume.
"I dont care who you are back in the world."
really don't like the fact that he's wearing shoes. he doesn't need them! he's a swimmer and his skin is bullet-proof. the red belt is fine, it's a nice focal point (check out the jae lee covers).
lmao @ atlantean-skin magic books. it'd be nice to see u-man working for sin.
Exactly, the X-costume seems to more at the mercy of the artist than the speedo. I mean, look at that collar, it's out of control! Also, the gloves???
I guess part of my problem with the X buckle is that I don't think the Atlanteans appreciate it much. As a costume element it works very nicely ... as long as it isn't plate like.
I love the big collar and I like the V cut, but I wish it cut down lower.
i don't know why he's wearing gloves in that scene....rheged, you bring up a good point about the x-belt being a point of contention for namor and the atlanteans.
but to me...that's probably why he needs to keep it on. the atlanteans don't respect the x-men and the x-men don't really seem to consider the fact that they have a barbaric race living in the water below them. namor needs to keep that belt on to tell his subjects that he is king, and they can either adjust to the change or not let the door hit them on the way out. it's also a reminder to the x-men that they have new partnerships that must be respected.
namor gave a good line to emma about how atlanteans have done nothing but prop the x-men up since the utopia move, and the x-men haven't given back anything in return.
olivetti and lee do a better job of portraying the collar than other artists. dodson does pretty well though.
The (oversized) speedo from Issue #1 (in my first post) is hard to beat though.
Also, I loved Dodson's cover.
I remember flipping through the issue at Midtown.
When I realized there was no content to match the iconic image I put it back.
Truly a classic cover though.
I don't care what Chris Samnee says, I love that John Buscema 'ladies panties' cover! I really enjoyed Samnee and Langdrige's take on Namor for Thor the Mighty Avenger.
