You dirty son of a sea-mammal
This is from YOUNG MEN# 24, December 1953. This was a brief revival by Timely (or Atlas, or Marvel, whatever)of the Human Torch, Captain America and the Sub-Mariner. Here, Bill Everett has Betty Dean explain to her roommate about Namor. (Sounds like a natural submission for READERS DIGEST "Most Unforgettable Person I Ever Met," eh?)

Is it just me, or does Betty refer to Namor's folk in an odd way. Not Mer-people or aquatic humans, but "sea-mammals" and "manlike mammals." Betty, what's WITH you? Do you think the Sub-Mariners evolved from seals or what?
