In Invaders, does #2, Marvel’s Namor becomes a villain and taking the powers of DC Comic’s Aquaman, sound like a marvel vs DC heroes face-off? Namor happens to be a Sub-Mariner and an Avenger. Although not the strongest of the characters in marvel universe but strong enough to knock the Hulk out when the two face each other. He is also strong enough to survive an atomic bomb.
A Sub-Mariner and
King of Atlantis, Namor is an extremely strong Alpha-level mutant because of
his human and Atlantean heritage. He has joined forces with the Avengers,
X-Men, and Defenders to save the world on numerous occasions. However, he over the
past several issues of Avengers has become much more of a villain than a hero. Owing
to his passion to save Atlantis from humanity, he has started an aggressive
campaign to kick humans out of the oceans.
His passion has set
him on a collision course for an all-out war with the surface world. However,

Armed with the new ideology,
Namor confronted the Sea Blades, an independent enclave of rebel Atlantean
soldiers. When he approached them, he flooded their underwater city with a
bubble of suffocating air until they surrendered. He took the display of his
new abilities to a whole new dimension by using it in a much more outstanding way
than how Hydro-Man had ever done with the same power.
