  This is a yawnfest. I hate to see Subby return to the same old same old.

  Poor atlanteans for a raze so far advanced they are pretty gullible and always end up renouncing Namor when some difficulty arises

  It just occurred to me, why does Atlantis only have a Prince and not a King or Emperor to rule them?

  This was like reading an issue of Prince Namor, Politician. Once again the Atlanteans show they're not worth the effort Namor puts into dealing with them.

  I almost fell asleep. The most exciting part were the last few panels.

  I think y'all are getting jaded as we get further into the order, I enjoyed this one. Or maybe I've just read so many terrible comics now that I am more forgiving?
Atlantis gets destroyed so often you would think all of their buildings would just be made out of plywood and bubble gum by now. But no, The Atlanteans would not think of something like that because I do believe they are the dumbest race in the entire Marvel U. And I include the Moloids in that assessment.
It was a nice change though to have Namor working with humans instead of blaming them for all of his troubles. He was still a***about it though.
And finally Namor proposes to Dorma! She's so dead, isn't she?

  I'm probably overrating this one because of how much I hated the previous Iron Man stories. It was refreshing to come back to Atlantis, even if its citizens remain dumber than an Everest-sized pile of manure.

  Am I crazy, or is the Marvel Unlimited version of this book actually a Golden Age comic instead?

  2 stars for Namor toppling his own house of cards!!!

Blushing Bride - Funny of Dorma saying she would rather marry a shark then Byrrah. When she almost married Tiger Shark!!

Yo Mama - I'm surprised Namor didn't kill that guy who insulted his mother!!

Splash - Nice shots of the women in Namors life! Sue actually looks hot!!

Mad Scientist - Man, Dr. Dorkas sure loves making sea monsters!!

'Nuff Said - "Watch your tongue, barbarian! You stand among civilized men now!"-Surface Dweller

  Extra star for ending (hopefully) the whole I get the crown if I force Dorma to marry me plot.

  This one doesn't really cover any new ground; we've seen all the plot points before. But this seemed to be executed much better than past attempts; kind of a surprise for a single-issue story that encapsulates everything the series has done since Tales to Astonish #70.

3 stars, and a hearty congrats to Namor and Dorma.

  While I can appreciate the crowd wanting proof of Namor's claim, it is still really annoying how quickly they believe Byrrah. Why would Atlantis choose a new ruler if he fails to get back by the arbitrarily chosen time? Isn't Namor a monarch? Is this like a "vote of no confidence?"  

  Marksman Says:

  Was all the Atlanteans just standing around for 24 hours waiting for Namor to come back? No wonder the kingdom is a mess.

  Maybe Namor is so mad all of the time because he knows that his people are just a little too dumb to be useful.
