Black Panther 2 Concept Art gives Namor a comically accurate look

In Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, the appearance of Namor (Tenoch Huerta) is based on a combination of ancient Mayan and Aztec mythology. Even then, there was a point in the development process when the character took on a much more comedic look. On Tuesday night, concept artist Joshua James Shaw shared a series of snapshots showing the mutant wearing something more similar to the costume first designed by John Romita Sr.

The concept art shows a general figure, probably before Huerta was cast, dressed in a black and blue suit complete with gold accents and a gold trident. Check it out for yourself below.
