Mermaid Man Begins: Origin Story

WE WANT TO KNOW HOW THIS ALL STARTED. - YOU WANT TO GO BACK TO THE START OF IT ALL, EH? WELL, YOU SEE, IN THE BEGINNING, IT WAS ALL DARK. AND THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN AN EVENT CALLED THE BIG SPLASH FORMED THE SEAS-- - NOT THE BEGINNING OF TIME, MERMAIDBRAIN. THEY WANT TO KNOW HOW WE BECAME A CRIME-FIGHTING DUO. - OH. RIGHT. HMM. WELL, IT ALL STARTED WHEN I WAS JUST A YOUNG, HANDSOME, MUSCULAR LAD. WHEN SUDDENLY I NOTICED THAT MY WASHING MACHINE HAD STOPPED. - WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT? - HUH? - YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE TELLING THE STORY OF HOW WE BECAME SUPERHEROES. - THE STORY. YES. I WAS A YOUNG, HANDSOME, MUSCULAR LAD SOAKING UP THE SUN'S RAYS ON THE BEACH WHEN SUDDENLY I BECAME DROWSY. [snores] A WAVE CAME ASHORE AND DREW ME BACK INTO THE OCEAN. [choking] HELP! HELP! SUDDENLY I REALIZED I WAS BEING SUCKED UNDER BY A VIOLENT WHIRLPOOL. I WAS RUNNING OUT OF OXYGEN FAST. BUT BEFORE I DROWNED, I WAS RESCUED BY MERMAIDS. THEY TOOK ME TO THE OCEAN FLOOR WHERE THEY GAVE ME A MAGIC SEA STAR THAT ALLOWED ME TO BREATHE UNDERWATER. [inhales] [exhales]
