The Truth about 1965:
Aquaman did marry Mera but it was in the previous year, 1964. Although it did happen in the December issue so it was only a couple of days off from being the truth.
Now for Two Truths and A Lie. The Year is 1966:
- The Cluemaster was introduced. His aim was to find out the secret identities of Batman and Robin. He was getting close to but when a doctored photo of Bruce and Dick meeting the Caped Crusaders surfaced (made to diminish Aunt Harriet’s suspicions) it thwarted his efforts.
- Spellbinder was also introduced. He hypnotized Batman causing Robin to save him, twice. But third time was a charm as Batman’s will was able to overcome the hypnosis and send the villain to prison.
- Although he wasn’t named Bane, Batman faced a man with body altering powers. Simon Banner was one of Aunt Harriet’s suitors. He was a weakling of a man until he stumbled across some radioactive venom. The effects caused his body to become more muscular increasing his strength tenfold. Simon became addicted to the venom and Batman had to overpower him using his mind to save Aunt Harriet.
