Synopsis for "Scavenger, Ravager, Plunderer, Thief!"
Having just dealt with the Fisherman, Aquaman is in a fit of rage over the recent death of his son and the sudden disappearance of his wife, Mera. While swimming towards home, he finds Scavenger purloining the ruins of the sunken vessel, The Bellerophon. The Scavenger tries to get away, but Aquaman sends some sea barnacles to intercept the villain's Scorpion-Ship. The Scavenger dispels the barnacles, but not before he accidentally wedges his ship between two stalagmites.
A short distance away, Kobra monitors Aquaman's fight with the Scavenger. He still has the captive General Horgan by his side. Kobra, still upset over the Fisherman's failure to kill Aquaman, has little confidence in the Scavenger and decides to personally intervene.
Aquaman attacks the Scavenger, but the villain uses his ship's modular legs to grapple with him, keeping him a safe distance away. He then activates a "Retriever Beam" to steal the cargo from the Bellerophon.
Kobra arrives and decides that he has had enough of the Scavenger's incompetence. He detonates the Scorpion-Ship, hoping that the blast will kill Aquaman. Aquaman survives however, but the villains get away.
