The 1978 2017 DC Calendar of Super-Spectacular Disasters: April A-Showering

It's April! (Please, please, just go along with me on this for one more month, huh?) And it looks like Aquaman left his basement faucet on again! Or maybe that's just a April Fool's joke by his brother Waterguy (I think he's called, right?).

What you can't sea (heh heh) is that it's so deep even Aqualad has already drowned! Well, he musta forgot his inflatable water wings. Again. Hope you didn't eat less than an hour ago, Garth! And hey look, just below and to the right of the word "April": gotta be famous Detroit Tigers fan Thomas Magnum!

Also occurin' this month:


It's baseball season! (Over on Earth-Acme, Elmer goes stalking baseballs in the woods with his shotgun.) But this entire month is put on rain delay which means all fans will have to return their complimentary gifts for Aquaman Bobblehead Day! (Let's face it, his Funko Pops figure is lots better.)


Once again, I've filled in the checkmarks accounting for every computer clue we've been given this month, and the readout now looks (beep, blip) like this:


And if you need some extra red herrings, here's this month's Obvious DC Clue™ planted by The Cluemaster, the only supervillain frequently thwarted by his own daughter! He must be the laughing stock of the beer blasts in the cellar of the Legion of Doom headquarters.


Now, figgering out this clue involves all your Pre-Crisis Trivia Knowledge, and to give you a gentle shove over the Clue Cliff I'mma gonna show you the character they're referring to!
