Characterized by its crazy and irreverent sequences, Rick and Morty is not a series alien to the inclusion of various characters, whose origins are closely linked to other references in popular culture.
In that sense, during their respective panel at Comic-Con @ Home, as indicated by Screen Rant, it was revealed that the concept for the development of Mr. Nimbus He was supported by the image of a great English pop artist.
Specifically, the actress Sarah Chalke, who voices Beth in fiction, mentioned that she was “shocked” when she saw Nimbus for the first time and that was when she asked the showrunner of the hit Adult Swim title, Scott Marder, where she came from, who stated that on a physical level “without a doubt we take a note (from) David Bowie. (He) was definitely an inspiration there. “
While the King of the Oceans design may be highly reminiscent of Bowie on the cover of his album Aladdin Sane, the co-creator and executive producer of Rick and Morty, Dan Harmon said that the character was also inspired by Namor the submariner.
In addition, Hamon unveiled the reason that explains the character’s behavior. “I think it all started with the question: how could you be a Submariner in school without getting hit every day? And then we ask ourselves: what if the goal was to get beaten up?
Despite all the above, what draws the attention of the fans is what would be the backstory between Nimbus and Rick due to the marked fear that the latter has shown before his nemesis of the seas. However, it is not yet known about it.
Who is Namor?
Created by Bill Everett, Namor made his official debut in Marvel Comics # 1 in 1939. The ‘Avenging Son of Atlantis’ is the offspring of a terrestrial being and an aquatic mother, endowed with superhuman strength and the power to fly.
