QUOTE: "My name is Wally West. I'm the fastest man alive. From the neck down." —The Flash

SUMMARY:  A vacation shared by Wally West and Linda Park becomes a nightmare when their cruise ship is unexpectedly forced onto the reefs surrounding a mysterious island by a pack of sperm whales! A villainess calling herself the Marine Marauder has been using her ability to command sea life to prompt shipwrecks so that she may enslave the castaways. Her goal is the unearthing of a legendary Babylonian artifact known as the Crown of Enlil. Concerned only with the safety of the enslaved men and women around him, the Flash agrees to help the Marauder recover the crown and learns that Aquaman has been brainwashed into compliance as well! Working underwater with the king of the seven seas, the fastest man alive soon discovers a vast palace concealed beneath the island. The secrets contained therein were better left hidden, however. Both the Flash and the Marine Marauder are forced to contend with an ancient evil when it becomes apparent that the Crown of Enlil itself has taken possession of Aquaman!
