Atom Ant

The first of Hanna Barbera's later 60's super-hero's (albeit an insectoid one), Atom Ant was a sort of parodic cross between Batman and Superman. He operated from his secret anthill in the countryside, where he had various gadgets including a supercomputer and weightlifting equipment.

His catchphrase was "Up and at 'em - Atom Ant!"
