N is for Namor

N is for Namor 

Sub Mariner
Prince Namor of Atlantis
First appearance: Motion Picture Funnies Weekly April 1939  (Never Published)

Actual First appearance
Marvel Comic #1 October 1939

Notable Team Affiliations: Invaders, Defenders, Avengers

Sub Mariner started in the 1940's as a hero along side the original human torch and Captain America in the Golden Age of comics.  He disappeared for some time but came back  on the scene in a major way in Fantastic Four #4 (May 1962) 

Since makings his splash back into the comics, Namor has been a complex character.  Hero? Villian? Monster? Mutant? The Atlantean Prince has been a fan favorite for generations.  I'll always love him for his role in bringing back Captain America in Avengers #4
