Several years ago, Oumlandian naval vessels violated the twelve-mile restricted area, and Atlantean border patrols opened fire on them. This minor skirmish escalated into an international incident, the result of which was a retaliatory strike against Atlantis' capital city, Poseidonis. Rather than seek redress with the United Nations, Oumland's Prime Minister, Stom, ordered six nuclear submarines to attack the Atlantean city. The bombardment succeeded in destroying the protective dome covering the city, killing dozens of Atlanteans. Prematurely, Stom thenannounced Oumland's annexation of the Continent of Atlantis.
Atlantis' former ruler, Aquaman, went to Oumland to negotiate a treaty, and was met with heavily armed resistance. He eventually made his way to the Prime Minister's palace where upon he learned that it was Poseidonis who instigated the incident. He warned Minister Stom against taking further action against Poseidonis and to leave all of Atlantis alone.
