It's time to face facts, true believers – the '90s were awesome. The pouches were plentiful, the costumes were impractical, and Marvel Universe dentists made a fortune correcting damages caused by perpetually gritted teeth. Thanks to the power of nostalgia, though, what would once be considered extremely embarrassing can now be called extremely awesome!

With that in mind, we've pulled a Marvel comic from the not-so-modern era and broken it down, one bodacious fact at a time! This week we're singling out FANTASTIC FOUR #412 by Tom DeFalco and Paul Ryan. Here's "Settling the Score With the Sub-Mariner!" by the numbers!


10 instances of Namor referring to himself in the third person, using 4 nicknames (Sub-Mariner, Namor the First, Prince Namor, and Avenging Son)

       

      9 visible pouches on 3 FF allies

           

          6 characters caught in 2 triangle-shaped feelings-related dilemmas — Thing/Lyja/Human Torch and Namor/Invisible Woman/Mr. Fantastic

               

              4 stretchy punches landed on Namor on 1 page

                   

                  2 future FF members — Medusa and Scott Lang — in 1 panel

                       

                      1 sick burn on Namor’s style choices

                          You can follow Namor's current battles in the pages of NEW AVENGERS
