Synopsis for "Kingdom Lost"
Green Lantern, Doctor Mid-Nite and Hourman attempt to help the beleagured people of Sub Diego. Aquaman meanwhile, discovers that Vulko has been killed. Lorena finds him and the two begin searching for Koryak. To make matters worse, they find that Koryak is dead as well. Aquaman tries to maintain his composure, but Lorena cannot contain her grief.
Elsewhere in the city, dozens of Atlantean ships arrive ushering in food and people. Black Manta and his crew manage to hide within the trail of sea crafts. Two Sub Diego officers see his ship and go to inspect it, but one of Manta's trigger-happy lietenants kills them with an eletrical discharge. Manta is angry at his henchmen for risking their exposure.
Aquaman takes some time to himself and reflects on the past. He steels his courage and swims back to the ruins of Sub Diego. He tells Lorena that they can no longer live in the past. It's time to go home.
- Includes numerous flashbacks from Aquaman's life: One scene shows Aquaman as a young prince, another shows him training Aqualad who makes the decision to join the Teen Titans, another shows Koryak's first days as a citizen of Atlantis, yet another shows the birth of Garth and Dolphin's child Cerdian.
- In the flashback scene depicting the birth of Cerdian, Koryak is shown as one of the people there to witness and celebrate the event. However, at the time, Koryak was still exiled from Atlantis, so it should have been impossible (or at least rather unlikely) for him to have been present. In addition, Koryak was not shown in Aquaman (Volume 5) #63, the issue in which Cerdian is born, further cementing the error of this scene.
- Cerdian is mistakenly referred to as a female in this issue's flashbacks. Cerdian is a male infant.
