      They weren't no, but in recent years his biology and abilities have been expanded upon. In the recent New Avengers by Jonathan Hickman we saw him suffer a seemingly killing blow from a knife thanks to The Black Panther initiating a carefully coordinated attack and despite a fate that seemed impossible for him to survive survive it he did.
      James Robinson himself showed Namor to have formidable recuperative abilities in his All-New Invaders series, a few short years ago we saw him similarly take severe attacks from Wolverine and Venom in Matt Cherniss' short Sub-Mariner series.
      I don't suggest Namor can quickly grow a new head or body like a Starfish might, but rather he can cling on to life even in this dismembered state. As the bottom line is he isn't human. He isn't necessarily just another Mutant either, rather he is somewhat unique...


    I mean aside from regrowing a new head...all of that seems consistent with Namor's usual powerset.

No, I am not talking about just a Wolverine-type healing factor, I am pointing out that of late there has been an effort to show how different his biology is to human-type. A stab through the heart won't kill him, The Black Panther recently plotted out his ideal revenge on Namor and despite it being seemingly fatal it (incredibly) didn't work with Namor.
So while decapitation seems very final as an end we must still accept that Namor isn't dead and therefore the question is how does he come back, from this? And based on available evidence I can only assume the answer lies in his very different biology - what is fatal to most others isn't necessarily fatal to Namor. He just needs some help is all...
