	Oh, it gets better.  The evil sub-ocean dwelling
	inhabitants of sunken Lemuria are attacking all us
	surface dwellers with their flame thrower equipped
	submarines, and their pet: Manda the giant sea monster.

	Our heros convince the Nemo character to use his 
	super-sub to attack Lemuria.  They use a freeze-gas
	ejector to put Manda into a frozen coma, drill into
	the heart of the Lemurian empire, and plant
	explosive charges on the Lemurian nuclear reactor,
	quick-freezing any Lemurian guards foolish enough to

	I forgot where I got my copy, but I'm sure a
	web search should turn up people willing to
	sell you a copy.

	There was a weird Anime version (Super Atragon) which had
	little to do with the original, except for the sub.
