This Explains An Awful Lot About Jaws 2, 3 &4!!

There's been a sudden trend in New York of people jumping into the water--and disappearing!!

Sounds like a job for...Namor, The Sub-Mariner!!

And what does old Fishhead find?

People attacked by sharks...on dry land?!

Sharks teaming up to attack boats?!?

Mysterious strangers making mysteriously gloating comments?!?

Yeah, Namor was a dickweed even back in the day.

Well, he sets up a stakeout on the beach, and...

Exposition time:

That makes perfect sense to me!!

Now, for something you don't see every day:

(For the record, this story was pre-Code. But it was reprinted, 100% intact, in Giant-Size Defenders #2 (1974), where I first read it. It scared the crap outta young snell, I must say...)

Anyway, now that Namor knows the deal, he has a plan:

And so...

Sufferin' shad!! 

Well, of course, it's obvious what happened. Some of these super-intelligent space-sharks escaped, and went on to menace teenagers, innocent boaters, and waterparks on motion-picture screens throughout the 70s and 80s.

Plus, it would explain Jabberjaw...

From Young Men #25 (1954)
