But Namor doesn't really fit the standard "superhero" mold. The story wouldn't have to be told in that way. It could be more like how he was originally treated in the comics -- our human viewpoint characters come under attack from a mysterious force in the sea, they discover it's the Atlanteans being led by this powerful king bent on avenging the damage we've done to the oceans, but the leading lady plays the Sue Richards role and discovers he's not so evil, just a well-intentioned extremist, and eventually he's persuaded to see reason, but remains a figure who could go either way. That's not really the formula for a superhero story at all.
