Well, obviously Namor is waaaaaaaayyyyyyy cooler. But, this shouldn't be a popularity contest. Who is more powerful?
darkspark - 12/21/2012, 6:50 AM
Namor is everything Aquaman wishes he was.
ComicBookGoth - 12/21/2012, 6:50 AM
i loves me sum aquaman.

But i'd go Imperius Rex
Shamo - 12/21/2012, 6:50 AM
Aquamans not even bulletproof. Namor kills him.
ralfinader - 12/21/2012, 7:03 AM
lol, tea. I vote Sea-Man.
hush - 12/21/2012, 7:05 AM
Although Aquaman is bullet proof...



I still think Namor would win.

@ Teabag ... I can still see it when I close my eyes... haunting...
tracydavis001 - 12/21/2012, 7:06 AM
Namor wins this battle!!
GhostZillaRider - 12/21/2012, 7:09 AM
@Teabag: Buddy, you never fail to entertain. I'm always looking for your name/avatar when I'm reading the comments section because, inevitably, I'm laughing my ass off.
Thanks for bringing your own special brand of humor into our lives.
Fabulous (in a very gay voice) post, Brother.
GhostZillaRider - 12/21/2012, 7:11 AM
Oh...and I guess that, since I know little to nothing about Aquaman, (other than the gay community adores him,) I'd have to go with Namor.
Sora - 12/21/2012, 7:12 AM
Namor is overhyped
Last time I checked, Aquaman's stats were almost double of Namors
According to DC wikia and Marvel wikia
Not sure how reliable they are
Also
In AVX, Namor got beat by the Thing...
Underwater...so he cant be that strong
Wingding - 12/21/2012, 7:13 AM
The heck is up with all the Namor lovers? Aquaman wins it, batches!

They're basically the same character :P
GhostZillaRider - 12/21/2012, 7:14 AM
Here's an interesting thought; Aquaman, being blonde haired and blue eyed, is technically an Aryan. Namor, in WWII, beat the piss out of lots of Aryans.
Does that give him more experience in wholesale Aquaman ass kicking?
KarlRobinofEarth2 - 12/21/2012, 7:15 AM
BOO! unsactioned CBM fight! BOO!
GodzillaKart - 12/21/2012, 7:15 AM
@Teabag: Looks like Namor is winning that one as well.
KarlRobinofEarth2 - 12/21/2012, 7:15 AM
GhostZillaRider- seems legit.
Squish - 12/21/2012, 7:17 AM
@Tea - I will pay you to write some standup skits for me
GhostZillaRider - 12/21/2012, 7:17 AM
@Wingding: It may not be that there are an abundance of Namor lovers, so much as it's simply a matter of people being more familiar with Namor and his power levels. At least, that's my excuse...

Namor
paladinm - 12/21/2012, 7:23 AM
Namor lifts about 85 tons on land, 100+ underwater. Aquaman has been buffed lately, and is said (by DC) to lift about 60 tons, probably not changing between land and water. They are both kinda bulletproof.

Namor can fly, but AM can telepathically command everything in the sea. That's how AM beat Namor's butt in the DC vs Marvel series. If AM gets time to summon stuff, and/or has his magic "water hand", AM wins. If it's a straight-up brawl, it's Namor hands-down.
jimpinto24 - 12/21/2012, 7:23 AM
Namor.
Marqy47 - 12/21/2012, 7:27 AM
Namor

That Marvel vs DC battle outcomes was based on fan voting. I mean, Wolverine beat Lobo, and Storm defeated Wonder Woman. Plus, the way Aquaman beat Namor was just garbage.......since when does Namor go down by having a whale land on him? Really?
GhostZillaRider - 12/21/2012, 7:30 AM
Now, if this were a beauty contest, Aquaman FTW. ;)
paladinm - 12/21/2012, 7:34 AM
SageMode: I agree the series was garbage; but if Aquaman can keep throwing whales, sharks, giant squids, etc. at Namor, eventually he's going to win.

But in a straight-up fight, definitely Namor. Underwater he can take out the Hulk!
SolarCowboy - 12/21/2012, 7:38 AM
Aquaman can breathe underwater, swim at tremendous speeds, and telepathically communicate with sea life. Being able to withstand ocean depths, he gets bonus points on land with his superhuman strength, enhanced senses, and nearly impenetrable skin.

Namor possesses superhuman stamina and durability, a result of his body’s adaptation to underwater pressures. He also possesses superhuman agility, reflexes, and speed, with a maximum swimming speed of roughly sixty miles per hour. Namor is able to fly via the finlike wings on his ankles, and he possesses a telepathic rapport with many, but not all, forms of marine life. Like all Atlanteans, he has a prolonged lifespan and his body is specially developed for underwater conditions, granting him specialized blood circulation to withstand freezing temperatures and highly developed vision to see clearly even in murky ocean depths. This hybrid physiology means he can survive indefinitely underwater or on land (though he would still need occasional contact with water to survive)

Coin toss?


groundrunner15 - 12/21/2012, 7:40 AM
Aquaman any day of the week.
SoulxAvenger - 12/21/2012, 7:44 AM
On land I pick Namor. In water I pick Aquaman.
Marqy47 - 12/21/2012, 7:44 AM
Aquaman is and always has been the laughing stock of superheroes ... I cant even take this match remotely seriously ( not that i would considering it is a fictional nerd battle :D )
Jerec350 - 12/21/2012, 7:48 AM
Namor. He can fly and has thrown down and held his own against some of Marvel's heavy hitters.
Dev7 - 12/21/2012, 7:56 AM
Isn't Aquaman a DIRECT rip off of Namor?
SageMode - 12/21/2012, 8:05 AM
PALADINM

C'mon man. Neither one is gonna win with them "just throwing sea animals" at each other. They're more powerful than that.
SageMode - 12/21/2012, 8:06 AM

Namor : 1939

Aquaman: 1941
Marqy47 - 12/21/2012, 8:06 AM
@Dev7
Yup

Aquaman - 1941
Namor - 1939
Marqy47 - 12/21/2012, 8:07 AM
SAAAGEEE ! :D
BlueMex - 12/21/2012, 8:17 AM
all jokes aside: Aquaman, he has more clothes on. haha
JohnTom88 - 12/21/2012, 8:19 AM
Feats could change any day of the week.

But Namor sticks with his original personality (grumpy anti-hero) from day One. Aquaman's personality malleably changed from writer to another writer.

Namor - Original flavor
Aquaman - "Make it yourself" flavor

What Aquaman has that Namor doesn't is the company's love and attention. Which proves to be Namor undoing.... until a Marvel Studios movie.

ConnerKent - 12/21/2012, 8:21 AM
Aquaman definitely
MrNikauL - 12/21/2012, 8:24 AM
Aquaman is the King Namor is only a Prince plus Aquaman has clothes and can grow a beard.
JonG303 - 12/21/2012, 8:25 AM
Aquaman. Why? Because he's a better character, as proved in his recent run.

I never understood why Namor, a being of the sea, has bird wings on his ankles. It's bizarre.
Dev7 - 12/21/2012, 8:27 AM
@SageMode, Maxi and Nomis

Man you guys are on the ball today. I get the feeling you were all waiting for someone to ask that question and you had those answers ready! ;D
