Synopsis for "Prey Perilous!"
While on the search for the Fisherman, Aquaman runs afoul of a NATO vessel. The Captain of the ship orders Aquaman to leave the area as they are involved in a highly sensitive mission. Aquaman's temperament is bitter at best, and he has no interest in NATO or their mission. Suddenly, great geysers of rock and water erupt from the seas, threatening to capsize the ship. Aquaman summons some whales to create a safety channel for the vessel, then leaves to continue his search for the Fisherman.
He finally locates him at the bottom of the Marianas Trench where the Fisherman has discovered The Bellerophon. Aquaman doesn't know what is so important about this vessel, but he is determined to stop the Fisherman regardless.
To complicate matters, the two combatants witness the return of a surprise adversary - the Scavenger. The Scavenger uses his Scorpion-Ship to lift The Bellerophon from the undersea basin and make off with it. Aquaman forgets his battle with the Fisherman and pursues the Scavenger. He grabs onto the ship, but the Scavenger electrifies the hull, sending Aquaman reeling. Although the Scavenger gets away, Aquaman does succeed in apprehending the Fisherman and delivering him to NATO.
