- I am not some pathetic self-appointed leader of an insignificant country that can be bullied into submission. Every port. Every ship. Everything that flies over the oceans does so with my blessing. Your world would grind to a halt if I willed it. Every land mass borders the sea. Your entire world is inside mine.

Synopsis for "Injustice: Gods Among Us - Chapter 12"
Batman patches into both the Justice League and Atlantean communication channels, asking Aquaman to stop the Kraken for fear of what Superman will do to Orin and the rest of Atlantis. Superman appears and confronts Orin head on, demanding Aquaman end his attack. Orin concedes, even though he says "they attacked first."
Superman tells Orin that he called for a worldwide ceasefire, but Aquaman says even Superman's voice does not pierce the depths of the ocean. Batman asks Aquaman not to provoke Superman, but Orin continues to assert his rule over the ocean and that Superman does not have the right to rule his kingdom.
Diana tells Clark to turn his communicator on, whereupon Clark hears that Atlantean armies are rising on shores across the rules. Orin calls it "a reminder" that the land masses of the human world exist within his domain and only exist as long as he lets them. Superman rallies Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and Shazam to Atlantis, where they lift it from the depths of the ocean and place it in the Sahara Desert. Clark calls it a show of force to those who would threaten the Earth.
Batman tries to talk to Superman, but Clark reveals he had been listening to Bruce trying to talk to Aquaman over the Atlantean communication channels. He asks Cyborg to revoke Batman's communicator access, saying "He's not with us."
Wonder Woman says Orin is ready to talk to Superman, to which he asks Diana to be the diplomat, seeing as Clark has accomplished nothing by talking. Diana asks that Orin pull his armies back from the shores. Orin laments his decisions, never thinking that Superman would be capable of what he had done. Aquaman said he scared a lot of people, and that he is sorry for what happened to Lois.
When Wonder Woman reports back to Superman, she confirms that Aquaman will pull his armies back but omits Aquaman's apology over Lois.
