Namor’s MCU origins from the comics were significantly altered in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, raising the possibility that he might be a formidable antagonist comparable to Thanos. So, how powerful is Namor?
While Namor is a mutant in the movie, as in the comics, the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever trailers suggest he is also a god.
We can be confident that Namor, who made his MCU debut in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, will go on to become one of the most significant characters in the future.
Even though these inconsistencies are to be expected given the challenging transition from page to screen, they may significantly affect Namor’s abilities and how he stacks up against a titanic foe like Thanos.
How Strong Is Namor?
As an enemy in the film Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Namor is a character we are already pretty familiar with.
But even if his name has already gained a lot of recognition among many MCU fans, you should be aware that he has always been a part of the Marvel Comics universe.
When compared to the most well-known Marvel superheroes, Namor may not be as famous, but he has always played a significant role in this comic book universe.
As a result, only a few people know Namor’s incredible strength. While it is true that the Wakandans possess the most advanced technology on Earth, Namor and his Atlanteans have constantly threatened them for a reason. That is understandable, given that Namor is already a formidable opponent.
So how powerful is Namor exactly? Namor is truly a mutant human/Atlantean hybrid in the comics. He is genetically superior to many Atlanteans since he combines human and Atlantean traits. Of course, in the Marvel Comics world, Atlanteans are aliens who once migrated to Earth.
How Powerful Is Namor In Marvel Comics?
In Marvel Comics, Namor the Sub-Mariner has a variety of abilities; some of these appear in the MCU.
In the comic books, The Avenging Son is the son of an Atlantean princess and a human explorer, giving him respectable abilities on land and water.
According to the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever teasers, Namor is adept at fighting underwater, and mastery of the elements is possible. Namor and Aquaman are comparable in terms of skills and origin.
But Marvel has cleverly distinguished between the two by giving Namor a Mayan heritage instead of an Atlantean one. In the MCU, Namor and the Talokan people will have the ability to control water, giving them the capacity to use nearly any body of water to surprise their foes in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
The ability to fly is another trait that provides Namor an edge. Namor’s winged feet propel him similarly to a fellow MCU mutant, evoking Ms. Marvel’s platform-enhanced bursts, even though he can’t seem to hover in midair sustainably.
Before the movie’s release on Friday, Coogler, and producer Nate Moore gave a clear explanation of the threat posed by Namor.
Wakanda is no longer a country that hides from the rest of the world and hoards its valuable resources due to what happened in Black Panther, but rather one that is open to the world.
