Scuba Batman: Scuba Duba Doo!
I don't know why, but out of all the numerous Batman variations, I always gravitate toward the Scuba Batman. I just think these are cool! I think it has something to do with a swimming instructor when I was a kid that had a Superman and Batman Bendy (Mego I believe) that she would throw into the deep end of the pool to help teach us to dive. Nothing like a little "Help Batman! Before he drowns!" to get a kid to push a fear of drowning himself aside to save his hero.
Anyway, I always thought that it would be cool to have Batman, in his cool scuba gear, team up with none other than Aquaman on an undersea adventure. This Batman is one of the early Mattel released a few years back, before they rebranded the line to S3, that I think is one of the best of the Scuba Bats. Not only is he sporting the cool flippers, but he has the webbed gloves to go with them, and a cool missile firing tank too!
