Dang it, I voted before I read the stats... I was hoping fluttering ankle wings would give Namor the win.

Aquaman !

Michael Phelps would be a cool person to play either Aquaman or Namor.",)
 
Aquaman would definitely win

Aquaman would win easily provided the race is nowhere near the Gulf Of Mexico otherwise:

His CV page says Aquaman can swim 10,000 feet per second. I'll take him.

bump

#11 Posted by Super_SoldierXII (6465 posts) - - Show Bio

Don't know why the bump, when the on paper statistics scream Aquaman. Besides, Namor would probably stop to check his reflection in the waters and make sure his hair wasn't out of place ...

LMAO! This is too true! Namor is too arrogant for his own good!

Aquaman, even on the crossover got it right when they fought.

Aquaman.

It's not even a contest.

Marina from Marvel was stated as being faster than Namor (due to her resistant free skin or smthing) and she had max speed of around 900 knots.

That's nothing to Aquaman who can go hypersonic and do 10000 feet/sec (20000 if he pushes).

@wolverine08: Thing recently pawned Namor underwater (PIS but canon), Black Panther straight up told him that he is gonna end him (to which Namor did nothing), and is also the he-b1tch of Susan Storm (always ready to do what she says).

On the other hand Aquaman took on the big 3 of the JL to a standstill, took over Atlantis via single combat beating it's king, and stabbed Darkseid twice and lived to tell the tale.

Marvel is not doing so well on the "Namor=bad@ss" department lately.

Lol, I really don't consider badass to be which people you beat up. I look more at the attitude. Namor is kind of getting pawned recently, but he's still keeping that badass attitude :D

@wolverine08: Namor always tries to come off as a bad@ss (that's a character trait of his), but he doesn't back it up (at least in the recent past).

Aquaman on the other hand does not try to come off as a bad@ss, but he does so casually just because he actually is a bad@ss.

Both are bad@sses and Namor might be the prototype for "antihero" but Marvel screwed him up in the recent past. Not fault of the character.

@comicfan11:

Yeah, Marvel really is taking Namor into jobber territory now. They need to give him a badass showing soon to redeem himself. DC is treating their Atlantean King much better.

Agreed. Pre-52 A-Man was a joke.

#30 Posted by comicfan11 (740 posts) - - Show Bio

@wolverine08: Marvel needs to give Namor a mini or a oneshot, that

1) Portrays Namor in a good (non jobber) way

and most importantly

2) make the story relevant in the MU (and not some Namor vs underwater vampires that no one gives a sh1t about)

3) establishes his supporting cast and defines their personalities (something more than, "Duh Namor is King and we follow")

#31 Posted by comicfan11 (740 posts) - - Show Bio

@monsterstomp: Aquaman has been a bad@ss since the early 90s under Peter David and Grant Morrison.

Even the ridiculously Marvel biased Wizard Magazine named him "one of the ten characters you wouldn't wanna mess with".

Before that let's say he had fallen on bad times, but since PAD Aquaman had one of the best track records in the DCU.

@comicfan11:

Definitely agreed! I do have some problems with the New 52, but I have been mightily impressed by how great and relevant DC has made Aquaman to their universe. Marvel should really just follow their blueprint for Namor. He needs better than talking big talk, and then getting his a%s laid out by chumps. Lol.

Marvel's been taking Namor into jobber territory much longer than just now lol. The guy has been the Gladiator of the sea for years.

side note... you would think namor would be a lot faster considering how much more powerful he is than namor but aquaman trumps him in swimming speed so thats pretty dope

#43 Posted by God_Spawn (38099 posts) - - Show Bio

@comicfan11: I believe he did beat him. I'm just trying to remember the fight. But even more recently Namor and the PF beat the sh*t out of Gladiator. But Gladiator is a stepping stone character similar to Namor. Gladiator has also been slapped by Cannonball. He has been knocked over by Gambit. He was defeated by the Fantastic Four and Captain America when Reed used a device to make Cap look like one of them, Cap then just blocked all of his punches, and when Glads' confidence was shook enough, Sue took him out with a force field or something. At least Gladiator has an excuse, his power being based on his confidence and all that jazz. Namor has been beaten by She-Hulk when she was a class 75 twice. I like Namor. He is a character you love to hate but is so good at it you have to respect it. But Marvel has forgotten the days of him beating Hulk, or how he was the first superhero to ever fly. He should be treated better. They've made him into a b*tch.

How are they DC fanboys because they support a character based on the fact that Aquaman is indeed faster?
