This story is reprinted from Adventure Comics #269.
One day while on patrol, Aquaman comes across a small boy sleeping in a craft, upon waking the boy, he finds that the child is scared of sea life. Calling his undersea friends away, Aquaman finds that the boy has purple eyes, marking him as one of the people of Atlantis. Aquaman soon learns that the boy was rejected by the society of Atlantis because he was deathly afraid of marine life. Aquaman then takes it upon himself to teach the boy that he has nothing to fear from aquatic life. The boy --dubbed Aqualad -- finally overcomes his fear when he helps Aquaman land a plane with the aid of luminous fish. Cured of his phobia, Aqualad is brought back to Atlantis to rejoin his people. The next day, Aquaman finds that he misses the boy, and is soon shocked when Aqualad reappears, explaining that he much prefers living with Aquaman as his sidekick to returning to Atlantis.
