Manic Monday Triple Overtime--The Unknown Prequel To Batman Incorporated?

Look, it's true!

What, you don't believe me? Look more closely:

Frogmen, Inc. is clearly a precursor to Batman, Inc. Clearly. Obviously.

And that's not just a cover blurb--their business is really named Frogmen Inc!!

So there's no demand yet for a skin-diving business on Long Island? Should we be worried??

See--you just have to give it time.

Soon enough our heroes would be involved in your standard underwater hijinks...

...they would actually get their very own recurring super-villain...

...and then it's total Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea territory...

Obviously an influence for Batman, Inc. Really.

The Frogmen first appeared in Four Color #1258 (1962). Their own series ran from 1962-1965.
