Namor X-Uniform/Costume

Do you think Namor should have an X-Man uniform/costume

I thought he has an X on his new uniform.

@Nobody: 
 Oh I did not see that X, thanks for pointing that out.

No, I don't think Namor needs an X-man uniform.  He should be in his classic green speedo!

@Mutant God: The X is on his belt.

@Decoy Elite:   Aaaaaah!  of all the variations on Namor's X-costume, I really disliked that one.  That ridiculous collar!!!  WTF?  And GLOVES?  With his bare arms. ugh.  Namor's never worn gloves before, and now I see why.
 
On a positive note, I do like how they drew Namor himself -- kickass and pretty.  But the costume ... NO.

give him  back his atlantean armor minus the cod piece. put an x on it somewhere.

I like his new suit I don't like if he is only wearing his pants.

@gunjin:   Which costume are you talking about?  I can't remember Namor ever wearing a codpiece, and the only armor he's worn is the Neptune Armor from 90s.  Or are you talking about that black wetsuit looking thing from the Sub-Mariner Initiative?  I vaguely remember them trying to pass that off as armor.
 
@gambit987:   You're right.  Namor shouldn't be wearing any pants at all. :)

@Jake Fury:   Thank you.  That X-men suit is better, IMO.  No gloves and a collar that is NOT going to flap around his face when he's swimming.  I also like the scales.

found this scan from issue #37, i don't know what volume. i think im just nostalgic for this since this is one of the first comics i bought. and i believe every male superhero should wear pants.

Forget putting an X on the costume, Namor shouldn't even be on the XMen.

Gotcha!  Yes, that's what I meant by the Neptune Armor.  It's from the 90s title Namor, on Jae Lee's run.  He's actually wearing his green scale trunks, but since it was the 90s, they made everyone wear a thong / speedo.
 
This armor has really grown on me.  I think the spikes are a bit too much and could be toned down, but I love all the engraving on the armor.  You keep trying to make sense of all the swirls, and then notice there's little skulls -- it's cool!  I'd love to see someone try their hand at it now.

@Rheged: yeah i could do away with some of the 90-isms. but i still don't like the trunks on top or showing through. does that mean the black portions of his pants are really chaps? too purple rain Prince-ish versus lord of atlantis prince-ish. i'd love to see jae lee redraw this, as his style now puts him on my top 10 list easy.

@gunjin:   YES!  That would be fantastic!  I definitely prefer Jae Lee's more modern version of Namor.
 
LOL!  I don't think the gray black on his legs are chaps.  In other panels it looks more like superhero tights, but with some texture.  I always thought they were shark skin or something like that.  But yes, with the green speedos over them.  Just like pics of Cap look like he has trunks over his tights.  The gray black on his legs and neck, however, are a colorist error.  All the other panels have his arms and legs bare.

One day I'm going to write up an argument for the speedo.  :)
