2 panels from Uncanny X-Men #5, that made me laugh

As if Scott didn't have enough problems with the Extinction Team, now he has to stop Namor from sticking his dick in the Mutant Messiah

Of course, this is completely in character for Namor, as this page from Fantastic Four #4 shows

That can be remedied in a hurry!

And when did Namor go Third-Person Person on us?

I think Kieron said in an interview he wanted to make Namor and Hope snark buddies.

He did -

"Part of the fun is seeing them all together," Gillen continued. "Namor is actually oddly funny. He says a lot of genuinely surprisingly funny things. And it twists characters. When Hope is the presence of the 'Gen Hope' kids, she's very serious and overly responsible. She's basically very adult. Amongst the X-Men, she's a slightly different creature. She's still a soldier, but she's much more brash and even lighter, as the responsibility is off her. So she and Namor end up getting along quite well together."

I'm prejudiced against Hope, tho, so I can't enjoy their interactions properly and keep wishing he was snarking with Magneto instead.

I've noticed that--when she's around the regular X-Men, she's fine, but when she's in Gen Hope...well...let's just say it's hard for me to say what I feel, because it might break some comm rules.

Nah, Scott's kind-of in his element here. I think Morrison had Logan say it best that one of the more amazing thing about Cyclops is his cool, lunatic calm under pressure. He'd probably be stressed if he DIDN'T have shit to do.

Oh, Namor, you sexy rascal! Of course it will take hours to list all your virtues.

I can`t stop laughing out loud at the re-interpretation of that classic fourth issue of Fantastic Four. Truly we are witnessing the return of the Marvel Age of Comics, hehehe.

When he's not around Sue and the FF, I love Namor. It's too bad writers seem to feel the need to drag out the old Sue/Namor/Reed triangle over and over again. She's never going to leave Reed (even after Civil War she kept back), and even when Reed was "dead" in the 90s she spent most of her time looking for him even though Namor tagged along.

I thought they did it at least once while Reed was "dead".

Nope - there was one issue in Namor's own title (which he had back then) where it seemed Namor and Sue got it on and then in the next issue he woke up with her in his bed and she told him she had moved on from Reed but we later found out that wasn't Sue at all but some other villain posing as Sue to sleep with Namor, Sue found out about because Namor went to see her all gloating and bringing up they had finally been together and she had surrounded to him and she was P.O.ed because it wasn't true - and at that end of the issue they made out next to a waterfall - because she felt sorry for him or something (REALLY!) and of course the cover of that Namor issue had Sue and Namor macking on each other. Meanwhile over in the FF title while Sue was busy leading the team and searching for Reed none of that was ever mentioned or even hinted at.

I can't see why Marvel would actually have Sue/Namor actually do it. Firstly it would ruin her image as Marvel's Mom and the most loyal wife in the history of forever even if her husband is...well...Reed. Secondly it would take away all the UST. Once they've done it - it's done. It's kinda like all the people who want to see Wolverine/Jean together. If it ever actually happened - it would never work and be all kinds of awkward later on - as universes where Jean did dump Scott for Logan - in X-Men Forever and Ultimate X-Men (where Jean was sleeping with Logan in the first 5 issue and by the next 5 she had dumped him for good) have shown.

I wish he would work on the eyes a bit more, though. The porn starlets he uses as photo reference are almost always dead-eyed and convey no real emotion through their squinty smile/grimmaces. (Though that first panel of Hope seems to convey "recently hit in the head hard enough to make her eyes cross." Or, possibly, "looking at digitally-redacted penis of costar mere inches from her nose.")
