Crisis of Infinite Episodes - The Crimson Monster from the Pink Pool

I will refrain from making the joke I want to about this episode's title, but you have to admit, it is a bit of an odd choice. The monster itself however has a pretty amazing design. Most of the creatures in these cartoons are pushovers, but that thing was serious business. After being batted around a bit, Aquaman summoned an octopus to create a smoke screen which had the side effect of turning the monster blue and neutralizing his acidic spray. That was lucky. At that point he began essentially just a punching bag for fish. A-Man hauled the beast back to its pink hole but the octopus ink was so potent the hole was also neutralized, whatever that means.

This was the second time that a colored hole in the ocean floor was bad news. Silver = evil sub ocean, pink = crimson monsters. Hopefully blue = nothing but friendly fish.
