'I was told at the time, “You can kill him off but you have to bring him back quickly. You can’t take too long.” So the funny thing is I originally intended to bring him back in issue #6, but then Tom Brevoort said, “If anybody wants to set something in Weirdworld that would be great.” So I did the two issues in Weirdworld, which ultimately, every single aspect of those two issues and what came after all lead up to the resurrection of Namor: Doctor Spectrum, Hyperion’s vulnerability to magic, Warrior Woman and the country that she’s taken over. All of those were narrative building blocks that were building to the current “Finding Namor” arc. So I always intended to bring Namor back, but it was interesting that his inevitable return of course got delayed, and then you don’t realize that all of a sudden he’s been dead for 10 months.' -- James Robinson

"The idea is to give Marvel an A-Grade villain who – a female villain – who can fight the Hulk to a standstill. Marvel has really fantastic villains, but if you think about it, there isn’t currently a major league, ass-kicking female villain in the Marvel Universe. Obviously there are super-powered female villains, but nobody who could take on Thor or the Hulk." -- James Robinson

"There's a point where [Namor] sort of crossed over. His decisions in Jonathan Hickman's Avengers books have been so dark, duplicitous, and downright evil at times. Also, quite frankly, he was the guy who pulled the trigger on Doctor Spectrum's world and destroyed it. So there's a need for some kind of retribution." - James Robinson

"There were so many characters in Hickman’s Avengers story that his Hyperion only had some amount of screen time. A lot of the focus on the character that I was able to get was the one-off special written by Al Ewing." - James Robinson

"In the last few years Namor has crossed the line from an anti-hero to something a little bit darker. I mean we’ve seen absolutely no remorse whatsoever from him lately." - James Robinson
