Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all.

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?

I don't really want him around.
But I don't really not want him around.

To make him fit in the past, they had to invent this retcon history of him being courted by the Hellfire Club. Shaw manipulated him. Emma manipulated him. And it all ended with the Phoenix Phoe-asco. I really can't see why he'd want to be associated with the X. Were I him, I'd be telling the X-Peoples to GTFO of my life.

'Course, the Phoenix might be a bright spot after the Cabal nonsense.
