Aquaman #36

Aquaman #36 (On Sale: September 7, 1967) has another nice cover by Nick Cardy and a blurb referencing the new Superman-Aquaman Hour.

Inside we have "What Seeks the Awesome Threesome?" by Bob Haney and Nick Cardy. Aquaman and his family build a replica of Atlantis as an exhibit for surface dwellers to visit. The pavilion is attacked and demolished by three robotic creatures known as the Awesome Threesome. After wrecking the exhibit the terrible trio known as the Torpedo Man, Magneto, and the Claw destroy a gyro-moleculizer which is being displayed in another exhibit.

Aquaman and Aqualad battle the robots to a standstill, but they are unable to beat them. Then a creature emerges from the ground beneath the destroyed pavilion. The alien makes his way to the real Atlantis followed by Aquaman. The Awesome Threesome delay the Sea King, allowing the alien to be picked up by a flying saucer.
