S13:E5 - Aquaman No. 16 (1964)

The Duel of the Sea Queens!

Sep 21, 2020

This time on the Couch: Mike, James, and Shée get sucked into a whirlpool of aquatic nonsense with 1964's Aquaman no. 16! It's a tale of lust on the high seas when the King of Atlantis appears to have fallen in love with a mysterious alien lady! Sirene does things his girlfriend Mera never would, like shapeshift and pilot a flying saucer. In a surprise twist, it turns out to have all been a ruse perpetrated by another alien who's on the run from some space toughs for squealing to the space cops about their space crimes, and only the Aquafamily can help! Sensing an opportunity to both uphold justice and manipulate Mera's emotions for his own benefit, Aquaman pits his two suitors against each other, with the Crown of Atlantis as the prize! ("The Crown of Atlantis" is how Aquaman refers to his weird fish genitals.) Meanwhile, Aquaman's ward Aqualad looks around vacantly for something to do. You might have to sit this one out, little buddy: Things might get a little PG-13!
