The aliens have landed. They’ve come for your swordfish.
Finally, the one villain we really need to call Aquaman for. Granted, he’s pretty third-string so far as superheros go, but if weirdly biological gilled orbs are stealing our swordfish, he’s the man I want on the case. Unless, you know, Green Lantern’s not busy. Because, let’s face it, Aquaman’s not exactly getting a 2012 film franchise here.
That’s one terrified swordfish. It probably wasn’t expecting this.
And who would? A massive orb of white flesh, red tendrils ripped out of its side to entangle fish and drag them into its…maw? pouch? reproductive orifice? Certainly one of those. This has to be some never-seen predatory life form, because if this was a normal part of swordfish reproduction, I think it’d be in a few textbooks.
The whole “pray-entrapping tentacles” is pretty creepy, but I’m really curious about those shell-nipples and weird side-slits. This must be amazing when it’s lit, rivulets of sashimi-grade flesh trickling out of its sides in a pink-purple pool, and of course the swordfish wondering if it will escape before it’s slow-roasted. Poor, deluded creature.
