July 20, 1966 – Robin hands Batman a can of Shark Repellent Bat Spray while they are both dangling on a ladder under the Batcopter. Batman uses the spray to fight off a shark that has latched onto his leg after he was accidentally lowered into the ocean. The shark explodes when it falls back into the water.
