Continuity From Adventure Comics, Vol. 1 #272 (May, 1960)[2]

In the parallel universe of Earth-One, Victor Bragg, an ex-swimming champ was envious of Aquaman's abilities. Knowing this, his friend and scientist, Dr. Krill offer to try out a new experimental operation on him which will make him Aquaman's rival. He agrees and has his lungs converted into gills. With newfound powers based on the flying fish, Dr. Krill predicts that Aquaman would not be able to stop Bragg.

Bragg under goes the operation and is transformed into the Human Flying Fish. Soon he is sent on missions to steal sunken treasure and other items of value from under the sea, out performing Aquaman each time and making his escape in a helicopter that Dr. Krill has waiting for him each time.

Eventually getting wise to the Human Flying Fish's tactics, Aquaman devises a trap for the crook, luring him to appear when he makes a false report of a priceless cargo of uranium that was lost at sea. Taking the bait, the Human Flying Fish attempts to steal the uranium (really an empty container) and is soon incapacitated when Aquaman summons electric eels to his aid. He then uses sword fish to knock down Dr. Krill's helicopter and the two crooks are arrested.
