When Fails the Quest

Season: 1
Episode Number: 3b
Season Episode Number: 3b
Production Number:


Voices: John Vernon (Namor), Peg Dixon (Lady Dorma), Bernard Cowan (Narrator), (Krang), (Zantor), (Demon of the Diamonds), (Neptune), (Rebels), (Electric Eels).

Plot: Lady Dorma prepares to meet her fate at the hands of the Faceless Ones while Namor tries to resist the enchantment of the Diamonds of Doom.

Review (Warning! Spoilers!): The pace picks up quite a bit in this chapter and covers the rest of Tales to Astonish #72 plus all of #73. A lot happens in this chapter, including Lady Dorma trapped in the Dome of Doom and Prince Namor trapped by the Diamonds of Doom! That's a lot of doom in one six-minute chapter!

I have to say that I really enjoy this less angsty, more adventurous Sub-Mariner. One of the main reasons that I have not been a fan of the character is because his brooding, angry, stubborn attitude makes me hate him.

But all throughout this quest Namor has been a lot of fun! He has been a thrill-seeker, a problem solver and a just ruler! I hope this Namor is retained throughout the series.
