never got into Namor at all, so for the 2nd half of the question my answer is Aquaman - I also really like the whole one hand, bad@ss style Aquaman they did for a while there...

As for who was more "appreciated".... not sure how to really interpret this. I'd say for general culture, the majority of people who are non CB readers/fans/etc... wouldn't even know who Namor is. You can't appreciate something you don't even know exists. As stated by people above, a lot of people still recognise the name Aquaman, although again, doesn't mean much... and yeah - he has been the butt of jokes for a looooong time.

As for the "original" - it was Namor, no doubt about that. Of course, copying each others characters is something of a hobby within comics.

Aquaman's been a boss since the COIE reboot. For some reason there is a sudden wave of a recognition after the new 52, I'm guessing because "superstar" *rolls eyes* Geoff Johns has brought a high profile attention to the character by taking over his book initially. However, AC's had some great solo series going back as far as the early 90s and got FANTASTIC representation in Grant Morrison's JLA and Alex Ross's Justice series'.

Justice was more recent, but if your a fan of Arthur Curry, it's a must read (plus, Alex Ross illustrates every panel, it's a must for that alone.)

Aquaman was way more famous, but in bad way. So we can say that Namor was more appreciated.

And i prefer Aquaman, i find him cooler.

Aquaman was and still is more well known outside of comicdom, albeit it being mainly for jokes.

As for who I like more? Namor.

Namor.

I hate how people use the fact that he's not known to the general public just to cover for Aquaman's sorry ass/bad reputation. People tend to forget that Namor was created first and Aquaman was just a copy that the general public these days still can't accept. There, I said it.

Ps:There is two questions if you didnt noticed

Who was the more appreciated in general culture/Who's your favorite before the new 52 one(Aquaman Or Namor)?

u only said 1 answer in ur le post & no le specify wich question

@amazoniespl said:

Oh humm i think its was Aquaman

AmazonieSPL

do u even lift

That was an answer to both questions.I think Pre-52 Aquaman was my favorite and that Pre-52 One was the most appreciated in general culture.While i'm not sure this was my answer.I might need to work on my grammar if that's the problem.

Exactly. I guess being badmouthed is better than not being talked about all.

Well after seeing many comments saying Namor wasnt thought at all lets assume he's not -_-.

So what being an copy/based on(In fact Namor is an based on Poseidon character) doesnt auto means you suck look at Deadpool,Goku(Superman,Sun Wukong & he wasnt the first person in fiction to throw energy blasts with his hands).....,(Every character is an based on so stop the hate).

You didn't read my comment properly, I only said that because everyone here is arguing on who's more recognized.

If Namor's name was out there more it's hard to tell whether he would receive the amount of hate that Aquaman has put up with for decades...

Well you didnt express yourself correctly.As for namor he's an jerk and Usians love Jerks&/BadAss in general.But than again he does sex with fishes so idk.

Isn't Namor only like 2 years older? Was he really so known that Aquaman would be a "rip-off"? (ie: Batman is so well-known now it'd be a rip-off if someone was a lot like him, but back when he was first created he probably wasn't popular enough for it to be anything more than a coincidence).

Maybe,Maybe not.Personally i think he's an rip off and i dont care at all.

Go out on the street right now, pick a stranger out of the crowd and say "Hey, how bout that Namor, he's a riot right?" Betcha the stranger won't know who he is.

More people will know the name "Aquaman" and at least the fact that he can "talk to fish" more than they will ever know Namor the Sub Mariner, dude stopped being popular in the media in the Golden Age.

@sylvain: I'm not anti-Aquaman, I just didn't find his Pre New 52 version that compelling. That said, New 52 Aquaman is a completely awesome character. Johns did a great job with him.

i'm not saying you are an anti-aquaman i'm saying i dont like them.

I think despite being more known for jokes, I still think Aquaman is more appreciated even though he is a rip off of Namor. That being said I like em both. Although Namor is the original he's a pompous jerk, while Aquaman isn't always portrayed as a Namor clone.

( + )

Well Goku is never alway portrayed as an based on character either evan if he's.

I think Namor was appreciated more than Aquaman before the New 52. Arthur was well known, but it was for all the wrong reasons such as fish jokes, etc. That said, I'd definitely take Namor over Pre New 52 Aquaman.

I've alway enjoyed Aquaman and i never liked anti-aquaman persons.In fact i've never liked anti-someone peoples.Evan the anti-JB makes me sick(Myself included back than i used to hate him lol)..
