Thanks! Same to you!

    Namor joined the X-Men during Fraction's run (Now that I think about it, when and why did he leave?), and it seems that he'll be joining another X-team soon. Thinking about it though, I'm not really sure if this makes sense. Yes, Namor was the first mutant, but he's not exactly what you would call a team player. I don't really see him caring all that much about either man or mutantkind. He's too antisocial to really be a team player, and most of the time he just seems to want to be left alone. He also seems to go through periods (Probably because there's no consistent characterization with him. Magneto and Lady Deathstrike seem to have this problem as well.) where he's a borderline villain. I just don't think that he's a good fit and that maybe he shouldn't become a regular part of the X-Universe. What do you guys think?


Part of X-Universe: Yes, I favor that.

Part of any X-Team: No, I don't favor that.

He should be available to a select few mutants when they need help, and, by the same token, if he asks, they should return the favor. I place both Jean and Jeen in this category. I don't know who else. Storm?

I'm very up in the air as to whether I will buy X-Men Red at all. The team roster is so random it just doesn't attract me at all. I wanted a Jean team full of Jean's people. I got a ragtag lot of whom Namor might actually be the most defensible member, because he deeply respects Jean.
