Now Namor Is Getting Killed Off In The Comics
Say good-bye to "Marvel's First Mutant" as Namor is biting the big one in the pages of Squadron Supreme.
This shouldn't come as that much of a surprise seeing how Namor is reportedly licensed out to Universal Studios, meaning Marvel can't use the character in their movies or TV (Marvel also cancelled Fantastic Four, disbanded the team and killed off Wolverine).
While Squadron Supreme #1 isn't due out until December 16th, series writer James Robinson let the news be known in an interview with ComicBook.com.
"I think that as you'll see in Squadron, Namor's death will open up a lot of amazing story opportunities which will evolve in the future," Robinson offered.
In the comics, Namor has been closely tied to the Fantastic Four, X-Men as well as the Avengers.
