With the debut of Namor in the MCU, comparisons with one of the most powerful villains of Marvel Studios, Thanos, the Mad Titan, were immediate.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever hasn’t delivered the debut of Namor, played by Tenoch Huerta, and comparisons to Thanos in The Infinity Saga were swift.
It may interest you: The existence of Namor in the MCU was discovered since Avengers: Endgame!
It should be noted that Ryan Coogler had the freedom to make a series of changes to Namor’s story, compared to the comics, so that his origin is now from the Mayan culture, and his name is Kukulcán, so before his people , Namor is seen as a God.
While the Mad Titan in the MCU kept the similarities of his counterpart in the comics, which was created by Jim Starlin, who over the years did everything possible to seize the Infinity Stones, although compared to the vignettes, in the cinema Thanos sought to give balance to the Universe.
In that sense, Thanos and Namor have a similarity, since both, in addition to having great strength, superhuman speed and surprising recovery capacity, seek the well-being of their people above all things.
And this well-being is so important in their plans that they are willing to make the decisions that are possible, regardless of whether this affects the majority of the population, or whether they do not have factors such as morality as an obstacle.
In addition, both Thanos and Namor are great military strategists, who know where to attack their enemies, and their armies rely on the leadership of both, regardless of whether they meet death in pursuit of their leaders’ plans.
“Namor is, above all, his own man. He has strong ideas about how the world should be and massive armies that listen to his every word.”, mentions the Marvel site about Namor
How are Namor and Thanos different?
As we have told you in SMASH, the existence of Talokan dates back to the middle of the last millennium, but they have been known since Avengers: Endgame, when they noticed an underwater earthquake, which occurred in Talokan.
Thanos opts for extermination to save the Universe, regardless of whether this plan is frowned upon, Namor privileges the life of his population over all things, to the point of keeping Talokan hidden from the world and the Universe.
In addition, Namor and his population find in the water a great source of energy, on which they can rely on defense missions and to surprise those who seek to violate Talokan.
And a small detail that must be taken into account, since Namor can fly, thanks to the wings of his mutation, something that Thanos will not be able to do, which gives him air superiority.
