Escape... To Nowhere!

Season: 1
Episode Number: 2b
Season Episode Number: 2b
Production Number:


Voices: John Vernon (Namor), Peg Dixon (Lady Dorma), Bernard Cowan (Narrator), (Krang), (Neptune), (Atlantian), (Guard).

Plot: Namor continues on his search for Neptune's Trident, but Krang is planning a deadly trap for the Prince of Atlantis!

Review (Warning! Spoilers!): Namor has a variety of super powers, thanks to his Atlanitan heritage. One of them is spinning his body around so fast that he can bore through solid rock!

Many of Namor's powers are not often seen today. But since this is the sixties, they are all out on display for us to see!

This chapter comes from the issue Tales to Astonish #71 and it follows it to a tee! There is a lot of action in this chapter, including a battle with a giant squid and the attack on Namor by Krang's battleship.

The animators make good use of the limited animation in these sequences. It may seem a bit cheap, but this is what they had to work with at the time and they make it work.
