Synopsis for "Crime Wave!"

The head of the crime syndicate which once kidnapped Mera has a new scam: kidnapping Aquaman and various surface people and subjecting them to a brainwashing process. The process involves confronting them with Thanatos, a monstrous version of themselves which battles them and saps their strength, in a mental fantasy world. After the process is complete, each thinks he has been killed by Thanatos, and operates as a zombie, stealing for the syndicate at the leader's will. Aquaman has a tough time with Thanatos, but finally defeats him in the mind-world shortly before the police crack the case, apprehend the syndicate head, and free Aquaman and the others.
