Not All My Power Can Save Me!




Season: 1
Episode Number: 3a
Season Episode Number: 3a
Production Number:
Airdate:

Writer:
Director:

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

Plot: In his quest for Neptune's trident, Namor must seek the Diamonds of Doom. Meanwhile, Krang attempts to make Lady Dorma his Queen to win over the affection of the Atlantian people.

Review (Warning! Spoilers!): This episode is a continuation of the previous episode, but spends too much of its time talking. This chapter only covers six pages of Tales to Astonish #72, one of which is a splashpage.

Most of the episode is dialogue, mainly revolving around Lady Dorma. This bogged down this chapter quite a bit as most of the images we still for several seconds each save moving lips.

I'm sure they could have found a way to cut down on talking and move forward with the story a bit more. The next two chapters move at a much quicker pace, and spreading out the content between the three chapters shouldn't have been a hard thing to do, and I'm not sure why they didn't.
