  2 stars for Hank & Janet guest starring!

Chariots Of Dire - That is one creepy looking chariot that Namor is riding around in! It looks like Naga; who we will meet later on...

  So I guess now we know what Hank and Janet have been up to all this time since leaving the Avengers.

What I love most about the Namor stories is just how darned REGAL the guy is, in everything that he does. The artists and writers are always good about making sure that his every word and every pose is kingly, right down to the fact the just his head breaking the surface of the water is one of history's most dramatic sights that we, the readers, are fortunate to witness!

Sadly, he is short-changed by Vince Colletta's horrible inking. Imperius VEX!

  Meh... but a bonus star for Hank and Jan. I may be one of the few who actually miss them. Let's hope they costume up for next issue!

  3 stars for the guest-starring Hank Pym making Atlanteans do the Hippy Hippy Shake!

  • That's my line "I never realized your work was so vital, Hank!! Washington even sent an armed task force to protect our mission!" (Clueless Janet) Or maybe Washington has not been completely honest about the true purpose for that mission!

  • Despite the usual beauty of Colan's artwork, there is one thing missing and that bothers me. We don't feel that the Atlanteans are underwater. They are walking with the same apparent gravity as if they were on land. I know it is a detail, but as seen in some stories illustrated by Bill Everett, it can make a big difference.

  • I really appreciate that Namor is no longer caught in a stupid love triangle like most other heroes!

  • Why on Earth would you create a monster to defend your kingdom without making sure it will not turn against you?

  • I'm no geologist, but I know enough to confirm that it is impossible for a scientific drilling rig to cause an earthquake, let alone qualify as a disaster of most awesome proportions.

  • Hank is being such a jerk trying to threaten Namor. Does he even know who he is talking with?

  • The plot had some potential, but it was based on a weak premise and it contained several flaws. Artwork would have been awesome with another inker. 3 stars anyway for the surprise appearance of Hank and Janet. And I was almost tempted to add a star just because Janet did not make a lustful comment on Imperius EREX!
