So why is he considered a mutant?
>>
>>77962094
the tiny wings that allow him to fly.
>>
Because he can fucking fly? Neither humans or Atlanteans can do that.
>>
>>77962094
read a fucking comic book
>>
>>77962094
Because he has an X-gene.
>>
Everyone hates him so he must be a mutant.
>>
He is not the first mutant though, that is a misnomer.
>>
>>77962302
Captain America isn't the First Avenger.
Iron Man isn't Invincible, nor is he made of Iron.
Superior Spider-Man was not superior.

And Timely Comics were usually delivered late.
>>
>>77962179
Is it really a mutation or can another human/Atlantean hybrid develop the same heel wings?

>>77962259
Did his father carry the X-gene? If it was Namor's mother then does that mean there are a minority population of mutant Atlantean?

>>77962185
What Namor comics you recommend? I read his Silver Age appearances, some collected Golden Age stories and a few of John Bryne's run. I read Illuminati as well.
>>
>>77962787
Yes his father passed it down.

Thanks /co/mrade!

Who owns the rights to Namor, FOX or Marvel? If it is Marvel, would he be turned to the first InHuman?
>>
>>77962302
It's meant to be "this is the first mutant character Marvel ever published" as opposed to "first mutant in the Marvel Universe" As far as I know, the Golden Age Angel and Ka-Zar aren't mutants.

When Namor got his ongoing around the late 80's or early 90's they just put the "first mutant" tagline because the X-Men were popular. And then decades later they had that series called Namor: The First Mutant.
>>
>>77964373
Supposedly Universal, actually. I don't know how that happened. So it might be a situation similar to Hulk in that they might just introduce Namor into a movie or TV show as opposed to his own thing.
>>
>>77964482
Like Namor vs. Frankenstein or something?
>>
>>77964455
Yeah I think in-universe the first mutant was apocalypse.
>>
>>77962094
In a word, branding.

Back in the 90s the X-Men were the flagship Marvel title. Highest profile, highest selling, all that jazz. So when they tried to do a high profile Namor relaunch by John Byrne they stuck a big old "MARVEL'S First Mutant" on the cover to try and boost sales. Mutants sold, so now Namor was a mutant, deal with it.

These days mutants aren't as hot a brand, but the in-universe designation has stuck around. Much like how the effects of the current inhuman rebranding is going to linger for a long time.
>>
>>77962787
>there are a minority population of mutant Atlantean

Actually, there was a Submariner story from the 70s that dealt with a band of nomadic Mer-mutants.

Hulk was introduced to the MCU in his own movie though
>>
>>77963133
why would anyone want to read anything Namor related?
>>
Are underwater heroes ever popular?
>>
Is Apocalypse still the first mutant or was that retconned?
>>
>>77975494
Yeah, but that was before Disney bought Marvel. You'll notice there hasn't been any Hulk solo films announced since then.
>>
>>77978447
Because he is based?

>>77978776
Depends. Selene and Maha Yogi are older.
>>
>>77978931
And there will never be.
>>
>>77973870
When did Namor get the wings?
