Jameson soon discovers the truth behind the gem - but does his destiny lie in Other Realm wielding the sword of the Stargod? Or will the parasitic stone mean his destruction?

A radical reinvention of Namor, the Sub-Mariner by comics legends John Byrne and Jae Lee! First, Byrne writes and draws the iconic Marvel hero as Namor enters the cutthroat world of corporate intrigue! The Sub-Mariner faces the subtle threat of the diabolical Marrs twins, stands trial for his attacks on New York...and gets beheaded?! Namor reforges alliances with old friends the Invaders, battles long-forgotten foes from WWII and unravels the mystery behind the resurrection of the immortal Iron Fist! Then, as Jae Lee takes the artistic reins, crafting dark and moody visuals, Namor confronts Doctor Doom and Master Khan, struggles to regain his memory - and returns to Atlantis to face a foe unlike any other!
