Did You Know?


This was the Sub-Mariner's sole animated series. The character was Marvel Comics' first and mightiest mutant, and had been a staple of Marvel Comics since the early nineteen forties, when he was first introduced. It was also the series in which the Uncanny X-Men made their television debut, in the episode "Doom's Day." The episode was based on a Fantastic Four story, but because the television rights belonged to Hanna-Barbara, the X-Men were substituted for the Fantastic Four. See more »

A moving Comic Book!
19 January 2004 | by (Houston, TX) – See all my reviews

This cool 60's-style cartoon based on Bill Everett's anti-hero Prince Namor the Sub-Mariner is among my favorites. The animation is limited, but the stories & characterization are Marvelous (pun intended) to view. Namor is ruler of Atlantis but is not without human weaknesses such as arrogance. In the typical Marvel Comics fashion, Namor goes through adventures which are larger than life, but all have lessons that apply to us as regular ole humans. I recommend that if you are viewing this for the first time that you should look at the cartoon as a moving comic book rather than typical animation. You may be disappointed if you are expecting much in the animation department. However the sound effects, voices, narration, still art, backgrounds, scripts, & fun value are off the charts! Oh how I long for a release of the complete set of Marvel Super Heroes on DVD. The opening song is also classic for those who grew up with it.
