In 1020 BC, Aquaman came to ancient Atlantis in the wake of the Imperiex War. Captured and interrogated by Gamemnae, he was magically trapped in a pool of water. Realizing that Aquaman's friends, the Justice League, would eventually come looking for him, she looked for defenses. Finding six other metahumans, she arranged for Rama Khan to receive visions, and then helped him gather her allies with his stories of a "seven-headed Hydra" who would savage the world. Under the command of Gamemnae and Rama Khan, the heroes left their homes and began training
At an auspicious time, Gamemnae sent Tezumak and Manitou Raven into the future to kill the League preemptively. However, the League was able to withstand the Ancients, and the two Ancients escaped into the past. Following them, the League infiltrated ancient Atlantis looking for news, before attacking openly. However, with Rama Khan's visions, the Justice League's weaknesses had been exposed. The Ancients' brutality won them the day, and they killed the Justice League.
However, Manitou Raven had been suspicious of Gamemnae since she had sent him to the future. When he tried to question Aquaman, she revealed her true plan: to use the power of Atlantis to absorb the souls and metahuman powers of the Ancients, and use this new power to conquer the world for Atlantis. Considering Manitou Raven not worth her effort, she allowed him to escape, but was trapped afterwards when Manitou Raven used the souls of the JLA to imprison Gamemnae behind an impenetrable barrier.
After 3000 years imprisoned, Gamemnae tried to escape with the power of the Justice League. However, she was defeated when the Justice League rescued Aquaman, who infiltrated ancient Atlantis again. With the loss of its power, Gamemnae's stolen powers burned her alive and the League of Ancients was destroyed.
