Namor, The Sub-Mariner

    (Marvel, 1990-1995)
™ and ©1990 Marvel Entertainment Group

This series begins with the whole world believing that Prince Namor, the Sub-Mariner is dead. Namor, who is making a quiet comeback as the wealthy head of Oracle, Inc., prefers not to dispel that illusion. In his new guise as a corporate head, he instead plans to use sunken treasures of the seas to stop threats to both Atlantis and the environment at large.

Written and penciled by John Byrne, this series marks a new beginning for The Sub-Mariner. Over the years, the short-tempered monarch has matured somewhat, and this maturity makes him a more interesting character than ever before.
