Plot Summary

Arthur heard news of a threat to the surface world, a group of Atlantean extremists known as the Deluge led by Corum Rath, who wanted nothing to do with the surface world, so the group was heading up stream to Boston with enough fusion charges to level the whole city. Fortunately Aquaman was able to stop this from happening as he defeat the terrorists before they could cause another war between Atlantis and the Surface World.[1]

During a diplomatic meeting in Spindrift Station a bomb goes off and Aquaman is attacked by Black Manta who is attempting to ruin Atlantis's negotiations with the surface world. Aquaman and Manta fight to a stand still until Aquaman allows Manta to kill him, believing that Manta wouldn't as it would render his life meaningless. Black Manta chose to surrender and Arthur met up with Mera to check on her wellbeing. When he returned to the embassy it was on lockdown by the U.S. army due to the terrorist attack.

Aquaman and Mera travelled to the White House and met with the chief of staff to get spindrift up and running again. However Arthur was arrested after a U.S. warship named Pontchartrain was sunken by a group of "Atlanteans" claiming to be the Deluge. in order to stop a war from taking place Aquaman agreed to go along with the United States' wishes. However tensions grew worse as the Drift had been caught investigating the wreckage of the Pontchartrain, causing U.S. forces to attack them, this prompted Mera to break Arthur out of jail and the two went on a rampage through battalions of U.S. soldiers as an attempt to reach the open ocean. However this was stopped when Superman arrived and tried to convince Arthur to stand down. Not convinced by Superman's plea Arthur began to attack him until the Atlantean forces arrived to protect him. After receiving an order from Superman to fix the conflict Aquaman retreated into Atlantis and began to look for a way to halt the forthcoming war.
