Review: Namor: The Sub-Mariner – Conquered Shores #1

Namor: The Sub-Mariner - Conquered Shores #1

Kevin Costner is one of those actors whose resume is more prolific than most living actors. When I think about the breadth of movies he has starred in, I often look at the diversity of roles  he has occupied. The only other actor to have done as much may have been Robert Redford. It helps that both often take on roles to subvert their looks.

As Costner has played in every genre, with his most complex being, his current one on Yellowstone. My personal favorite being his role in Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves. One of his most lauded was Waterworld, whose premise was laughed at, but we fast forward to the present, and it seems more like a reality. In Namor: The Sub-Mariner – Conquered Shores #1, we see through another lens just how the world would be ran undersea ruler.

We are taken to a dystopian future where most the world is underwater and the iconic Statue Of Liberty can only be seen through the hand holding her flame. We soon find out that the Kree is responsible for the accelerated state of Earth, leaving human to hide and plunder resources where they can, while Namor’s people live in … world supremacy. This leads to Namor retiring and letting his younger cousin, Namorita, take the throne in his stead. We are taken to “Dry Man’s Land”, where humans tear each other apart for nothing at all, as an older Captain America tries desperately to keep the peace as much as possible. As Luke Cage sees different, wanting more than what the Atlanteans give them to survive. By Issue’s end, the peace between the two factions ends abruptly, as an unlikely hero emerges from Namor’s past.

Overall, Namor: The Sub-Mariner – Conquered Shores #1 is an intense story that will remind many of DMZ but set in a sunken future. The story by  Cantwell is astounding. The art by the creative team is marvelous. Altogether, a more than worthy addition to this complex antagonist who will soon see screen time .
