Synopsis for Aquaman: "Prisoners of the Aqua-Planet"
While on patrol, Aquaman and Aqualad spot strange alien sea creatures attacking everything in sight. With the help of their friends of the deep, they manage to fight back the creatures. They are then met by water-breathing aliens who explain that they have come to Earth from the planet Venus in order to escape conquerors of their world. Taking Aquaman to their ship, they explain that they came to setup a new home under the sea when their sea creatures (Which they used to aid in the building of their dwelling) got loose. Aquaman and Aqualad decide to stay and visit as the Venusians build their village and coat it with a protective dome. Once complete however, the village is pulled out of the ocean by an alien space ship, taking everyone with it.
Brought to Venus, Aquaman and Aqualad are taken before the ruler, Naeco, who sentences them to be imprisoned along with the Venusians that are against Naeco's rule. With the help of their undersea friends that were captured along with them, Aquaman and Aqualad manage to break out of their prison cells. After an underwater chase, the two grab sea-sponges and escape to an island on the surface where the Venusians cannot follow due to their inability to breathe air. They soon are attacked by many exotic beasts that are native of the planet, but Aquaman and Aqualad quickly dispatch them, and replenish themselves with water from the sponges. However, they realize that they are now trapped on the island because the moment they step foot in water again they'll be captured.
Realizing that the Venusians are afraid of the surface creatures, Aquaman and Aqualad dive into the water and make a break for it and manage to escape the chasing soldiers. They find a number of rebels and they construct a projection device that enables them to project images of the surface creatures which frightens the soldiers. Even though the Venusians find the projector, Aquaman has them disorientated enough for the rebels to finally beat their foes and take back their planet. After thanking them, Mermor, the leader of the rebels, sends Aquaman and Aqualad back home to Earth.
