1962 Fantastic Four #4 UK (CGC 3.5) Published May 1, 1962 this early UK issue of Fantastic Four is a key book in the Fantastic Four series as well as the Marvel Universe as a whole. This important book features the first Silver Age appearance of Namor the Sub-Mariner and the first identification of the underwater kindom of "Atlantis" by name. The history of Namor as a character goes back to 1939 and Timely Comics. The Sub-Mariner was one of the top three books produced by Timely, along with Captain America and The Human Torch.

Namor returns to comics decades later in this 1962 issue. A member of the Fantastic Four, Johnny Storm/the Human Torch, discovers him living as an amnesiac homeless man in the Bowery section of Manhattan. Johnny helps him recover his memory, and Namor immediately returns to his undersea kingdom – identified here, for the first time in the Marvel canon, as Atlantis. Finding it destroyed from nuclear testing, Namor assumes his people are scattered and that he will never find them.

Namor will be entering the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the next few years where he will be a major villian or anti-hero. His film debut has this comic book primed and ready to explode in value.
