I know we're used to saying sub-mariner like 'maah' 'ren' 'err' but you gotta take the time period and dialects into consideration.  The way he reads it reminds me of a 1940's WWII era announcer which is very apropos to the Avengers 4 resurrection of Captain America.  The emphasis on 'Marine' like we would say Sub-Marine (with the er) added on.  I accept either pronunciation but yes, to me, I go with the 'marin'  not 'marine' pronunciation.

thanks. i remember reading something about conflicting ways of pronouncing Submariner. Everybody was involved in the conversation: Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, Bill Evertt. Maybe it was in the letters section of early ASM?

When I was a kid, I was sure it was Sub-marEENer. That's what it looked like! Then I saw, I believe, one of the 60's cartoons narrated by Stan Lee, and he said "Sub Mar UH ner" and it blew my little mind.

Same with Mag-NEE-to. I was sure it was Mag-NET-o.

Pronounce it like this, but with 'sub'...

 

Submariner is not pronounced based on the word mariner but rather on the word submarine:

Now if they had known what they were doing they would have named him Sub-Mariner, ie a mariner that lives below the waves.  Not a guy based in an underwater vessel eg a submarine.

I've seen fans become enraged and act out over seeing an unhyphenated Spider-man! Which is startling and flies in the face of convention when you consider that comic hobbyists are generally quiet, unassuming, and introverted, long on patience and short on anger who wouldn't hurt a fly. Quite amazing that you're not the only one with this pet peeve.

Here's my advice. When you see unnecessarily hyphenated words, save that hyphen for a rainy day. It'll come in handy and you'll be glad you saved it for emergency use when you see Spider-man misspelled without the hyphen!

Gotta laugh thinking about the guys in the studio producing and creating those GRR discs. Smoking cigarettes and counting down the hours to go home.

EDIT: Upon further reflection, I'd rather the GRR discs have been made in the 70s when blow was every where in recording studios. Can you imagine listening to those GRR discs made by voice actors and producers coked out of their minds?
