The Revolution, Part 1 wiki last edited by X35 on 10/29/13 02:20AM View full history

The King has returned! Fresh off his key appearances in CIVIL WAR and WOLVERINE, Marvel’s first mutant returns in his own limited series that will forever change the way we look at Namor and Atlantis. A horrendous terrorist attack has struck the U.S., and all clues point to an Atlantean sleeper cell. Now, Namor finds himself in S.H.I.E.L.D.'s crosshairs. But is Namor to blame? Or is this merely the first strike orchestrated by those within Atlantis who would see Namor stripped of his title and his kingdom? The half-human, half-Atlantean son of two worlds must race between the sea and the surface to track down those responsible for the attack before Tony Stark, Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. – a.k.a. Iron Man – takes him down! Written by Matt Cherniss and Peter Johnson (POWERLESS) with art by the internationally acclaimed Phil Briones (WHITE TIGER) and a first cover by superstar-artist Michael Turner!

I've never been a huge fan of the Sub-Mariner. He's always seemed a little one-dimensional to me. The whol arrogant thing just gets old. I did like the John Byrne series with Namor running a business and working with Danny Rand. The underwater adventures just made me (sea)sick.Then came the announcement from Marvel about this mini-series. I always have mixed feelings about mini-series. It's like, why is it just a mini-series? Is there not a good enough idea for a regular series? Does Mar...

WOW! 0

This was a great first issue. I loved the cover. The art was very superb. I find myself engrossed with the story and this book is very true to continuity and the characters. It looks like Namor is being betrayed by his own people and that there will be a probable war with the U.S. Nitro is a good villain by the way. Namor is still rude and snappy as usual...I like it. And I like that the writer did not try to change him for some sordid and bull crap storyline. This is true to form and character....
