1. Is anyone famous or somebody you know actually named "NAMOR" in real life? Seriously, so many single named celebs and heroes and novelties often get copied - why not Sub-Mariner? How 'bout, even, a pet named NAMOR??

2. Is FLEXO currently owned by Marvel?
Mystic Comics #1 (coverless) Marvel Timely 1940 Flexo Blue Blaze (c#16242)

3. Does anyone care to read a belated flashback scene/story of how Cthon came or possess Scarlet Witch during S.E. AND/OR how Wanda came to be free of his possession - at this point? Or is better just to hold on to the disgust of this overlooked dangler adding tot the disappointment of said Event?

4. WHY exactly has there not been a scene yet showing Avengers aware of Phil Coulson's living status yet?! Politics? Legalities? Uncreativity?

5. Was Marvel's promise of a ALL-NEW Miracle Man series a false hope or just another legal disaster of 2017?

I've never met a Namor. Even googling, I only found this:
Professor Angela F. Danil-de-Namor

Regarding Miracle Man, Marvel owns the character completely as I recall.

So they COULD bring him in to the MU, but with all the recent upheavals in the books and in management perhaps the plan has been put aside.

Also there is the question: is he brought in as a new character, or is he shoehorned/retconned into continuity like Sentry, and Blue Marvel?

I would give him his own Earth. I don't think he works as a concept otherwise. They could do one event on Marvel's usual Earth where Miracle Man dominates the world but at the end of the event he would have to be kicked out. Otherwise no other stories could be told.

"Namor" does seem to be a real but very rare name (surname and given name). As a surname, a major population center seems to be Argentina, but it also occurs in Brazil, France, Italy, and Florida in the US. Lots of other places, but those are the top 5.

Found one dog named Namor (mind you, it's a temp name):

He's a cutey, too.

I think this might be the same dog (very playful):

Someone adopt him!!!! (hmm I think saw him on AdoptAPet.com too, but he's gone now... yay adoption!)

Google shows there was also a Namor Labrador in Gainesville FL recently, but he's adopted too.

Another one!

Oh, you betcha Marvel still owns the character. He was referred to in the Agents of Atlas series as a possible recruit, but didn't show up. He was also in Marvel Zombies Destroy. Pretty sure it was the 616 version of him, as well, as this was one of the times the MZ thing ventured into the actual 616 universe. Flexo was part of the ARMOR team, repelling Zombies. But he... um... sacrificed himself, getting atomized by a bomb. Maybe he survived?

Only if it makes for a good story. Otherwise, I want all of creation to forget Secret Empire.

Still too soon.

False hope. No legal problems. Marvel owns the character outright.

Please, nobody type the "S" word. Blue Marvel is an underused and a really great character. I would love a mixed team with Adam and Monica, maybe Jean's new team can become Unity team for the X-Men, cosmic team?
