Namor the Sub-Mariner is a superhero (and often anti-hero) from the Marvel Universe and the Prince of Atlantis.

Origin[edit | edit source]

The son of a human and a water-dwelling Altanean, Namor attacked the surface world after they threatened his home of Atlantis.  Later, after discovering the parties responsible, he ceased his war on humanity to fight evil alongside the Invaders.

Original mutant of Marvel[edit | edit source]

Namor was originally established as a hybrid of human with atlantean, but that did not explain why he has wings on his feet, and the writers ended up saying that all this time he was half mutant instead of half human. In a comic book, Magneto and Professor discovered that he was a mutant all this time, and decided to recruit him, and he joined the X-Mens when they faced the avengers.
