Black Manta Model Sheet by Alex Toth

This was the other Aqua-related model sheet from Alex Toth's book By Design!, featuring page after page of his marvelous character designs.

As popular a villain in the comics Black Manta was, it was his debut in Challenge of the Super Friends--with that unforgettable voice--that vaulted him into the popular culture. He remains pretty much the only Aquaman villain anyone who has never read a comic book has probably heard of.

Too bad Hanna-Barbera never had any scripts for the show that would've guest-starred Mera; I would've loved to have seen a Toth model sheet for Aquaman's queen!

Mera by Toth? Yeah, that WOULD have been sweet.
