Source: Is James Robinson To Write Namor?
We all have at least one of those characters where we are constantly wondering “Why does (s)he have their own book?” For many its Deadpool, Gambit, Vibe, and Superman, but for me the number one on that list has always been Namor. When I first got into comics in the long long ago that was the 1990 Marvel used to run a “Bullpen” feature in their books teasing what was going on in the rest of Marvel that month and as I read through them it never ceased to amaze me that Namor had a book that ran for 62 issues. I loved the New Warrios, but I’d never think of giving Namora her own book (or Night Thrasher for that matter.)
But, whatever, all I am saying is that nothing has ever made me curious enough to read a Namor solo book. Which is why I am so interested in this rumor from BleedingCool:
Not saying that I’d buy this book, but given good reviews, I’d pick up the first trade. James Robinson was able to make something as lame sounding as Starman one of the best books ever, if anyone can make Namor palatable, it’s him.
Come on, Marvel, make this happen.
Or, like the Hawkman tweet addressed in the BleedingCool article, this could all be a joke, and if it is then I’m back to not caring about Namor, so it’s not really that big of a deal.
But, it would be cool.
By the way, anyone else remember these?
Hey, and for the record I am not writing Namor. That was a joke between friends meant to be a DM.— JamesDRobinson (@JamesDRobinson) May 30, 2013

About the Author - GHERU
RU, or as he’s known in the writers’ room: the cute one, is relatively unappreciated in his time. RU’s YouTube show, RUviews is watched by literally multiple people every month and his Outhouse articles have helped line many a bird cage. Before you send RU a message, he knows that there are misspelled words in this article, and probably in this bio he was asked to write. RU wants everyone to know that after 25+ years of collecting he still loves comic books and can’t believe how seriously fanboys take them. RU lives in Akron Ohio (unfortunately) with WIFE, ‘lilRuRu, and the @DogGodThor. You can also find him on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, & even Google+ (if anyone still uses that).
