The End of the Quest

Season: 1
Episode Number: 3c
Season Episode Number: 3c
Production Number:


Voices: John Vernon (Namor), Peg Dixon (Lady Dorma), Bernard Cowan (Narrator, Lord Vashti), (Krang), (Robot Tank Driver), (Neptune).

Plot: Namor must save Lady Dorma from the Faceless Ones, but that would mean giving up his quest for Neptune's trident and the throne of Atlantis!

Review (Warning! Spoilers!): This chapter moves at an alarmingly quick pace, covering all the material in Tales to Astonish #74, #75 and half of #76! I really don't understand why the first chapter of this episode was so slow, but this one moves at lightning fast speed! Spreading the content out between the three chapter more evenly would have helped a great deal.

I have really enjoyed Namor's quest for Neptune's trident as it has taken him out of his role as ruler and advocate, simply making him an adventurer. I hope that Namor won't get back into his larger-than-life ego and need to rid the surface world of humans too quickly, but some how I doubt it.

I'm also guessing that we haven't seen the end of Lord Krang. I have no idea who is in Namor's rogues gallery, but Krang is a shoe-in to be at the top of the list.
