Uncanny X-Men #12 (Not yabbering time Spoilers)

More fun AvX tie-in stuff, I was annoyed at first when they brought in that annoying Savage character, but hid presence redeemed itself with the excellent copulation joke at the end. Brilliant stuff that. But the best thing about this issue was once again Namor, Kieron Gillen just writes the best Namor ever, whether it’s his flirting with Hepzibah, or his fight with the Thing, or his hilarious relationship with the freaky prawn queen, he’s just brilliant whatever he does, and almost every line is hilarious. When Gillen eventually leaves the X-Men behind, he should definitely do a Namor solo story, that would be most excellent.

I love Gillen's Namor, this book is Namor and his Uncanny friends as far as I'm concerned.

The rematch resolution was priceless, talk about saving face for our combatants. :lol:

I laughed so hard at Namor's lines, I nearly passed out for lack of oxygen. When he said, "Namor understands if they want to speak of his prowess," I nearly lost it. That was so funny, it was ridiculous.

Who woulda thought that Namor would end up bein' one of the coolest X-men?

Not me, that's for sure.
