** Initially the Atlanteans had BizarreSexualDimorphism with the males having green scaly skin, large eyes and catfish-like barbels under their noses while the females had Caucasian skin, large eyes and some slight-fish like features. The blue skin, name of their race and the fact that they had any connection to Atlantis would not appear until 1963: twenty-four years after Namor's debut.

** Initially the Atlanteans or Sub-Mariners, as they were originally called, had BizarreSexualDimorphism with the males having green scaly skin, large eyes and catfish-like barbels under their noses while the females had Caucasian skin, large eyes and some slight-fish like features. The blue skin, name of their race and the fact that they had any connection to Atlantis would not appear until 1963: twenty-four years after Namor's debut. Further more they could be out of water for five hours with Namor being able to be outside indefinitely due to his half-human nature.

* {{Pride}}: Oh so very much.
* [[RealMenLoveJesus Real Men Love Neptune]]: Namor is a follower of the traditional Atlantian religion of [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Neptune worship]]. The sea god is one of the few beings Namor will speak to with civility and appears to have genuine respect for. In return, Neptune has aided Namor several times over the years from providing counsel, armor and weapons, to restoring him to life. Of course, this respect does not extend to the rest of the Olympian gods whom Namor treats with the same disdain he does everyone else.

* {{Pride}}: Oh so very much.
Even taking into account that he's a king, Namor's default attitude is ''incredibly'' prideful.

* {{Stripperiffic}}: Is most well known [[WalkingShirtlessScene for wearing basically a green speedo and not much else]]. In ''ComicBook/{{Marvels}}'', he wears ''[[FullFrontalAssault nothing]]''. [[EvenTheGuysWantHim He has the body to get away with it.]]

* AntiHero / AntiVillain: Type III to V DependingOnTheWriter -- Retconned as a chemically induced fictional mood imbalance (bipolar disorder doesn't work like that) during Byrne's run on Namor's own book. He is a member of the Illuminati (a council of powerful heroes which includes Professor X, Iron Man, Reed Richards, and Doctor Strange) and the Cabal (its villainous counterpart). He claims he doesn't see the difference.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Namor used to have powers based on sea creatures like the puffer fish and the electric eel. The power to control and redirect electricity is the only artifact left over from this period.
