Fantastic Four #195
Issue(s): Fantastic Four #195
Instead it's only a coincidence that Sue winds up at Namor's studio, but he did show up here to see her because his Atlantean subjects have apparently freaked out and started worshiping him like a god.
In fact, they've sent a bunch of robots to bring him home.
Sue and Namor fight the robots for a while, but then Namor decides to do his duty and go home to his people.
Sue manages to get through all the fighting with only one "What would Reed do?" so i guess that's something.
And Sue tells the Impossible Man to buzz off; the highlight of the issue.

Good action ahd while Susan does kinda play second fiddle to Namor at least she gets a few neat moments. Better than even a few years ago I think.
And forget about the Silver Surfer! Dr. Doom should try taking the Impossible Man's powers! Though Impossible Man doesn't bother me as much, I'd take him over Assistant Editor's Month any day.

Really odd scene in this issue where Namor comments about Sue and his past together. He says there were "many painful years" when he loved Sue before Reed claimed her.
But in the comics there were only two years between Fantastic Four #4 and #27-35 where Sue chose Reed and they got engaged!?
And the first of those two years cannot be called painful - Namor had a real chance of winning her heart.
So might there perhaps have been a secret, earlier connection between the two?

Sue performs well here in all situations as a strong and independent woman. Without her to rescue him Namor was, and would have remained, ignominiously defeated and whupped down on, by his own Atlantean Retrievers. A considerable improvement in Sue's ongoing character development during this time period.
