Superman at sea

Action Comics #15 (by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster) is a thoroughly ridiculous story in which Clark Kent goes after sunken treasure to help a children's charity that's struggling. Rather than use his powers to retrieve the loot, he goes to the trouble of renting a boat and diving equipment, giving a gang of criminals the opportunity to replace his crew. The rest of the crooks' plan has them easily steal a Navy sub and use it to dispatch more men to try to take the treasure from Clark. It's extremely dumb and incredibly convoluted.

But at least Superman fights some sharks.
