The Iron Idol of Infamy

Season: 1
Episode Number: 4c
Season Episode Number: 4c
Production Number:


Voices: John Vernon (Namor), Peg Dixon (Lady Dorma), Bernard Cowan (Narrator, Vashti the Elder), (Attuma), (Warriors), (Guard).

Plot: After rescuing Lady Dorma from the Quagmire of Doom, Namor's next task is taking back Atlantis from the clutches of Attuma before Lord Vashti is destroyed in the Iron Idol of Infamy!

Review (Warning! Spoilers!): This final chapter concludes the epic tale of Attuma's attack on Atlantis. Basically, Namor pulls a "Trojan Horse" and sneaks into the throne room and one-two punches Attuma and reclaims his throne.

Of course, there is more to the episode, including a scene in which Namor uses his telepathy to communicate with the fish, something that doesn't really happen much with modern Namor.

I enjoyed this episode quite a bit. The pacing was great, the story was well told and the action was plenty! I am not usually a fan of the Sub-Mariner, but if the comics were written more like this I think I would enjoy his adventures a lot more!
