  I guess it's good that they've begun to address the women's lib movement but you can tell Stan and Roy aren't quite on board. Feminists are portrayed as petty, vengeful, unsympathetic psychos like Llyra and Valkyrie/Enchantress. When Clint and others disparage nutty females, you can tell that's not just a sexist character trait being given to them, that's the writer's opinion.

  Nice debut for a Sub-Mariner villain. I was actually surprised by the final reveal of the true origin of Llyra.

  This would have been a great 2-3 part story. Again, another great idea marred by the stupid 1 issue story rule.

  Well, it's an improvement. That ending though...ugh.

  Lab wear for the common Atlantean: Lab smock, pants and protective glasses.
Lab wear for Namor: Speedo.
Must be embarrassing to get beaten by Captain Planet in drag. (That's right, and you can't now unsee it!)

  4 stars for the 1st app of Llyra, who will be known for doing something special for Namor fans in the future!!!

?Question? - Namor mentions seeking an ally with Attuma's Barbarian Hordes...when did that happen???

Orion - Something about a green skinned girl in red thigh highs just does it for me!!

Jaws - Gruesome scene of Llyron getting chomped on!!

Love Potion No. 9 - Interesting that Llyra has a chemical that can weaken Namor...I bet, we never see it again though...

'Nuff Said - "He wields that octopus like some mammoth war-club!"-Luscious Llyra

  When Namor, dweller of the sea and supposed monarch over all sea-life, refers to the well known electric eel as a 'slimy sea-thing'.

  For once, I didn't see the ending coming. Although I do have to question how Llyra knew the chemicals would weaken Namor...how long was he unconscious?

  Decent issue. Llyra's clearly a match for Namor, Too bad she bought it at the end of the story. Or did she....?

Hey, Namor went to see Karthon. What happened to him? Did he ever get free of those sharks? Dangling thread alert!

3 stars.

  A not terrible issue of Sub-Mariner? Wow.

  Sub-Mariner is still an overbearing blowhard.

So, is Karthon coming back? Will Subby get his treaty?

So is this a split personality or an actual physical change? I'm not comprehending the physics here.
