Anyone who doesn’t know Ookla the Mok owes it to themself to give them a listen.
Right, we have to keep these things straight, he talks to fish, Swamp Thing talks to vegetables, Animal-Man talks to animals and Condiment King talks to catsup, it doesn’t talk back to him but that does not stop him.

Good thing it rained after that while Aquaman was floating around with Aqualad on his head for six hours, or they both would have dried out!
Oh… and while he was Aqua Blimp how did his move around in the direction he wanted to go?
In the 60s due to the Comic Code Authority comic books had to tone down the violence a good deal, this is part of the reason why there were so many stories about weird transformations at DC Comics at the time.
Almost all of them had at least one story where one or more of the main characters transform in weird ways, usually however it was only one change a story.
In Aquaman’s Secret Powers, a 12 page story found in the pages of Aquaman # 14, 1964 the readers hit the transformation jackpot with Aquaman saving a dying castaway who bestows a magic powder on him that gives him temporary new superpowers.
Weirdness than ensues.
