Daytime Heroes: Captain Fathom (1965)

Cambria Studios, the folks that invented Synchro-Vox, created a 3rd adventure series to use the technology, but Captain Fathom is lesser known than Space Angel and Clutch Cargo, though it has one element common with Space Angel---both boasted the talents of comics icon Alex Toth, who would take his talents to Hanna-Barbera the next year.

Some can argue that Captain Fathom might've been derivative of Jules Verne's 10,000 Leagues Under The Sea, though Fathom is clearly a heroic, altruistic character.

The series had been taken out of circulation by the time I got around to scoping out cartoons as a child, hence no rating. Let's check out "The Loss of the Argonaut" (which was Fathom's sub):
