  That Lady Dorma must be one hot piece of ace!

  With this arc, Submariner is clearly off the bottom of the list and into the middle of the pack. If they keep it up, I won't dread namor's stories.

  A good arc, right up until the oh so convenient ending. Was looking forward to a three way dance between the three super powered fishy foes.

  Yuck at the Dorma/Tiger Shark stuff.

  Good 2 parter. It looks like the single issue stories may be coming to an end! Hallelujah!!!

  Dorma sure is quick to give her love away. Easily one of the worst-written female characters in Marvel right now. The rest of the story was pretty good, though I'm not kidding...I was really hoping Dorma would be stuck with Tiger Shark.

  For those that don't like Namor at this point, this arc will be a pleasent surprise..... for those, like me, that like Namor, this is a great arc that you will be really happy with.....

  Seriously, if Namor put a ring on it, his realm would be a lot safer.

  3 stars for Orka & Tiger Shark!!! It would've been 4 stars, if not for more Dorma drama...

Wise Old Man - If Tiger Shark is attacking the killer whales, then why think he's allied with Orka??

Poise - @Redsvetz: Well, she was Miss Seaweed of 1969...

Shark Bait - With Tiger Sharks teeth, it looks like he would of tore off Dorma's face when he kissed her!!!

Property Values - Man, Atlantis gets no respect...

  That's what, the fourth Atlantis that has been destroyed? Although I have to question the value of walls underwater. Surely the killer whales can just swim over them.

  I kinda wished that Tiger Shark was present instead of buried at the end of the story. Having his claim to Dorma's hand would've at least made her drama have a point. We'll have to remember this ending for the next time Tiger Shark shows up, to see if he remembers her promise.

It was cool to see a two-part arc here, but this is a story that could've gone another issue or two. I'm still a little hesitant to call this one of Marvel's better books at this stage, but at least Roy and John are really trying here.

Atlantis wrecked again. It's tough being Atlantean nowadays, always having to rebuild. Wonder if anyone down there sells homeowners and property insurance.

3 stars. Another typical takeover attempt thwarted by Namor, Vashti and Dorma. In other words, another day at the office.

  I'm thinking we need a running tally of residents in Atlantis. How many died in this attack? Do the Atlanteans spawn? Are thousands born every year? How can they keep up these wars without catastrophic population loss?

Okay, I understand that Dorma is an attractive woman and an appealing prospective bride, but there are quite a few other lovely ladies under the sea. Surely not everyone will go after Dorma.

  Does Atlantis have its own atmosphere? I feel like all the scenes within the city, the citizens walk around instead of swim. Also, Dorma is shedding tears (pg 11, p4).
