From Comics to Toons: Sub Mariner vs. The Thing From Space (1966)

From The Marvel Superheroes Show comes a Sub Mariner serial, "The Thing From Space".

Attuma, the power-coveting warlord of Atlantis, is turned back yet again by Prince Namor, but when a robot from outer space splashes down in Atlantis, Attuma sees a golden opportunity to finally overthrow his nemesis.

In the comics, Attuma's skin was colored blue at least as far back as the late 60's, but was changed to flesh tone for TV, likely so's not to scare the kiddo's.

Rating: B-.
