Defenders Namor #1 second print,
VERY FINE/NEAR MINT
BONUS REVIEW by "Doc" Schaefer

THE BEST DEFENSE' PART TWO!
The Monarch of the Oceans has declared war once more on the surface world in the pages of AVENGERS. And if this is a war that Namor means to win, he is going to need allies to stand beside him!
The Sub-Mariner's quest for a lost tribe of sea-dwellers carries him further than he ever thought possible-and to a reckoning both strange and wonderful!
And hey, what's up with that weird apparition in the sheet, anyway? Rated T+

While I was impressed by Marvel going back to its roots and recreating the Defenders in a way that reflected their original starting point, I quickly grew confused and annoyed. Namor the Invader, the Avenger, the X-men all seem to be gone and he's devolved into the infantile half man that was prone to temper tantrums. And while Chip Zdarsky's story is the perfect telling of that character, it makes me wonder what happened to all those years of Namor. Namor's own rage basically gets him killed until the intervention of the Silver Surfer's Board? This gathering of heroes is all over the board and don't even get me started about the guy in the sheet. I lived through the Elf with a Gun.
I give it 6 out of 10 Grahams
