Aquaman and the "Imperiled Sub" (Hostess Ads #46)

On a site dedicated to making a wiki history of all things comics, comics ads should not be forgotten. Especially the ads for Hostess Fruit Pies, Twinkies, and other snacks. Starting in 1975, Marvel and DC heroes (and the Harvey characters!) spent seven years throwing Hostess snacks at a bizarre line of villains to stop their crimes. Although many of the villains were completely silly, they were created specifically for these ads, and in many cases, not even the names have been used again, since the ads stopped in mid-1982.

So I thought I'd show an ad here, and make a list of the comics I find it in, as I run across them. This list features: Aquaman and the "Imperiled Sub." There are no notes on this ad, on the Hostess Superhero Advertisements page.

Aquaman and Aqualad dive deep to escape a tidal wave, only to discover a minisub that's not powerful enough to escape the wave's force. Calling upon a school of dolphins, Aquaman gets the sub to shore, and the grateful submariners share their Twinkies to show their thanks.
