The beautiful Namora by ChrisFaccone The beautiful Namora by ChrisFaccone
Namora is a character that originated in the Golden Age of Comic Books. Her original name was Aquaria Nautica Neptunia, but she was nicknamed "Namora" in honor of her cousin Namor. Like Namor, she is a hybrid mutant with superhuman strength and the power of flight by using the ankle wings on her feet. When her father was killed by treasure-hunting surface-dwellers, she fully changed her name to Namora, the Atlantean term for "Avenging Daughter", as Namor means "Avenging Son". She was Namor's cousin (though not by blood), and became his companion for a period of several years.

Lovely pic, you capture her very well, love the halftone look, too! The original Agents of Atlas mini-series might well be my favorite Marvel thing of this this Millenium!

Perhaps she feels fresh because she hasn't been as much used as all the other female characters… Or she's just a really good character! :-)

I loved how they recruited characters from the Golden Age for this group! Namor and Namora, both awesome :-)

Its the sad truth about current state superhero comics, nostalgia rules supreme... granted this characters is from what? the 50's? And if they decide to give her a book, I'd give it a try.
