“Oh yeah. I was a rock ‘n’ roll kid, mainly, but prior to age 12, when the rock ‘n’ roll sort of took hold, I was a comic-book head. I liked Sgt. Rock. And I loved theSub-Mariner. I loved Prince Namor, the Sub-Mariner.”

 
I told Depp he’s in good company when it comes to admiring Bill Everett’s imperious sea king — last year Clint Eastwood told me Namor was also his favorite.

Cool.   
The Sub-Mariner was my late father's favorite superhero when he was a kid as well (Dad was from Easwood's era, btw).

He just got hotter.  
 
Although he has been doing the hobo look lately.

Namor or Depp? You did see that Dark Reign one shot right? Maybe Depp's fondness for Namor inspired him, or vice versa....

lol, but it is Namor (evil smile), and he tries hitting on Emma, because he is trying to make the other Cabal people think they don't know each other, and Emma denies him. Yeah I know though, looks... unique here...  
 
Oh, well Hood tries to show the Cabal how he is so bad ass and gansta, so he jumps up on the table and points his guns at Emma and says something trailer trashy, then Emma casually makes him put his own gun in his mouth and then she says something else that burns him, and makes him sit in his seat like a good little boy.  
 
I'll scan it and send it to you later. Great Emma moment.

Cause Namor is unique and original.  In a crowd of do-gooders, Namor, and his speedo, are going to stand out. :)

LOL!  Exactly! 
 
@SC:  OMG!  I can't believe you offended my eyes with that travesty of Namor!  Bendis and Maleev should be eviscerated by lampreys and piranha for that!  And on the Namor forum, no less.  Here, wash your eyes out with the real Prince Namor.

@Rheged:  Thats a pretty good Namor, but still personally I prefer this Namor...  
 

Almost makes me forget I'm straight... or am I....? No yes I am. *stares at Rogue and Domino pillow fighting in my imagination... oh wait Domino don't kiss... and down she goes, don't stare at me Rogue, you knew what would happen if you made skin contact with Domino, your disqualified!*

Oh lol, I see, I know that, I don't think or prefer Hobo Namor lol I agree he is nasty, thats why I posted it, because, ah never mind, it was a joke concerning Dark Huntress saying Johnny Depp was rocking the hobo look, *looks teary eyed* Why does everyone think I like hobo Namor and hobos! Just because my girlfriend is homeless and sleeps in a trash can doesn't make her a hobo! It makes her cute like Oscar the Grouch. Uh... unless she is stealing food from from people and running from the cops...

I love this pic. Namor looks really bad ass.
#25 Posted by SC (12967 posts) - - Show Bio
@TheGoldenOne:  Indeed. Plus he doesn't look like stupidly stacked with muscles, he just looks real gansta, and at one with the water. Like a warrior or barbarian after a huge fight. Hardcore bad ass though and though. I love the coloring too. I think thats what really nails the whole image. I hope I can buy a poster of that image one day.

He doesn't look like the Prince of Atlantis. He looks like a single father who's missed a few child support payments because it was that, or eat for the month.

Hell yeah man, have you read X-Force Sex and Violence? Its the bees knees. Bees knees dripping with golden dewey honey dripping. I wish he didn't work so slow and we could get more stuff from him.

Awh man, why do you have to go make Namor cry? Its sad because he is under water and no one will notice. Can you like maybe like Namor now that Johnny Depp likes Namor? I bet if Namor were a non fictional character he would like you...  
 
@Emperor Gonzo Noir:  Maybe... maybe Namor might herald the age of the stoned, hung over, unshaved look as the new standard for pretty?

The one where Johnny shaves him? I can get that for you if you want.  
 
@Hawkeye446:  Uh yeah... his hair was under water? It looks all floaty? Like when you are in the shower you get water hair... or as a normal person might say... wet hair. ^_^

Yeah, I think its his chin. Notice how they made it really soft and round? Usually only female characters get that. Its funny too because we talked about his jaw earlier (well not me) but Namor use to have a really... unique shaped head. Also the eyes, very dreamy really? looks like he is wearing eye liner.
