Namor Vs Thor: Who’s The Strongest?

In a conversation with Marvel, the director of Black Panther 2 Ryan Coogler spoke about what makes Namor strong like Thor. He says that introducing the antagonist was a good opportunity for them. Ryan reveals that Namor is a ruler and a politician of his kingdom just like Wakanda has his own ruler T’challa and now Queen Ramonda & Shuri. So the character “represents more than himself. “

Further, he says, “[There’s] no equal in terms of his capabilities, being able to breathe underwater and breathe at high altitudes and walk around on land.”

Ryan admits that Namor is “incredibly strong” just like Thor. He concludes, ” if he’s around enough water he can be as strong as the Hulk.”
