Synopsis for "Elongated Man's Undersea Trap"
This story is reprinted from The Flash #119.
Following their marriage, the Elongated Man and his wife Sue head to Central America for a honeymoon. While out on their yacht, Ralph goes skin-diving. After hours of waiting, Sue begins worrying something has gone wrong with Ralph. She heads to shore to call the Flash for help.
When Sue brings the Flash to the spot she last saw Ralph, he dives into the water to look for his friend.
The Flash is soon rendered unconscious by an electric shock.
When he awakens, he finds out what happened to Ralph and many other skin-divers. They were captured by members of an undersea race known as the Bredans who stored them in a large fishbowl. The Bredans use humans as slaves and form a telepathic bond with them to force them to perform manual labor.
Finding an amnesic Elongated Man, the Flash helps restore his memory by causing him to stretch. The two heroes work together to smash the Bredans oppression of humans. After the Bredans are defeated, the two force the Bredan leaders to promise to never to capture skin-divers and exploit them again before returning to the surface with the other captives.
The Flash returns Ralph to Sue and they celebrate by skin-diving into the ocean together.
