The Marvel Cinematic Universe has become a ripe playground for Internet articles about theories and lists. I've even done my own list in the past of characters I want to see get the MCU treatment. With the merger of Fox and Disney paving the way, we even have Fantastic Four and X-Men to hope to see someday. I also am in need of something to kick start me writing again, as I've had trouble keeping motivated. When I don't see anything new in comics really grabbing my interest, it gets easy to be disillusioned. The Marvel Cinematic Universe routinely impresses me. Therefore, I'm using it for yet another list among the many out there. This one is on characters that I want to see in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
NAMOR THE SUB MARINER #8 February 1990 Right after High School, I was big into John Byrne. It was a good time to be into John Byrne, too. He had produced Omac for the DC, West Coast Avengers, Sensational She-Hulk, Next Men and of course, Namor, the Sub-Mariner. Of course he didn't do them in that order, but those are the comics that he worked on in the late 1980s and early 1990s that just seemed to be Byrne flexing his artistic muscles. I got rid of a lot of my mainstream comics a long time ago, but just cruising bargain boxes has gotten me replacement copies of a few that I really remember fondly. This particular comics was stashed away in an office paper box, since it's not really among my prized possessions, comic-wise. I have to admit that nostalgia is the main reason that I own this, so a lot of this review will hinge on that perspective. SYNOPSIS: In 1961, German agents, including a scientist stash away a project before the Russians seal them into the city of East Berlin. While escaping the scientist is shot, and the two agents violently get him past the US checkpoint in an effort to get him help.
