This is a Job for Scuba Steve!

Black Manta as he appears in Batman: The Brave...

I ran across an article about a wreck salvage team that witnessed and recorded a sonar image of something.

Hardly worth mentioning at this point.  It’s a sonar image.  It suggests much, but confirms very little.

The image has geometry.  Ho hum.

What is actually interesting about the article is the Ocean Explorer, the ship and team from Sweden that came up with this image at “87m down, between Sweden and Finland.”  Gulf of Bothnia? Eighty-seven meters is around two-hundred eighty-five feet or so.

These sea hunters are out looking for wrecks.  Searching for vintage booze in the wreckage of ancient seamen.  And with such focus and intent that all else is meaningless.

“It is not in our sphere of interest to go for this object, since it might be nothing,” he said.

“We cannot afford spending funds just to have a look at it, even if it might be a new Stonehenge.”

“It is up to the rest of the world to decide what it is.”

How perfectly befitting a crusty, no-nonsense Captain.  “You lot stop farkin’ around wid dem Extry Tresstrals!  We’re lookin’ fer spirits.  Rum or bust, fellers.  Look sharp.”

But I can tell you, I know that circle.  The Hall of Doom surely looks just like that from above.

Well, let’s just file this away for later.  When Aquaman has an opening, he can look into it.  Because if Black Manta is in on this somehow, I don’t want any part of that.

    It wasn’t even that deep in the water. It seems to me that they could have investigated something that had the potential to be worth more than a bunch of champagne bottles.
