    Short summary describing this issue.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.

    Battered and left to perish on an exposed reef, Aquaman discovers, to his horror, that all the denizens of the deep are instructed to attack him without mercy. But though his beloved ocean is off-limits, a mysterious freshwater lake may give him more than just sanctuary.

    Aquaman takes a trip through his memories as the Atlanteans arrest him and take him to die on Traitor Reef. Aquaman, however, doesn't intend to die on a dry reef now any more than he did as a baby. He frees himself with difficulty, but is immediately attacked by the watching Atlantean soldiers. He gets away, but only onto dry land. He tries to slip into a hidden cove, but the Atlanteans have somehow turned all the sea life against him, and he is forced to retreat.

    Bleeding heavily from the attacks, dehydrated from the time on the reef, he heads inland and sees an ancient forest. Once in the forest, he sees a lake, but the water is too far away. He thinks of using his harpoon to drag himself to the water, but the electronics have been destroyed by the Atlanteans. He uses the last of his strength to throw the useless harpoon into the lake.

    Aquaman has fallen on the edge of a mystic lake, and the inhabitants of the lake, six maidens, drag him into the water after he throws his harpoon "to" them. The lady of the lake, a mystic being, takes Aquaman from the maidens and promises to restore his hand.

    The JLA, in the meantime, is searching for Aquaman. The Martian Manhunter finds him on a very dry bluff off the coast of Western Ireland. After Aquaman describes the forest to him, J'onn indicates that there is no forest, and that Aquaman had to have dreamed it, but Aquaman produces his new hand, made of some sort of mystical water.

    The Rising Downfall A water hand.  Hmmmm.  I loved Aquaman when he had that harpoon hand.  The character seemed to have reached a point of greatness he had never really had before, or in my opinion since.  Aquaman peaked when he was dating Dolphin, with the beard harpoon hand, and gladiatorial looking armour.  Not that those things mad him great but, he was great when these things were going on.  First I have to admit he looked kingly.  He looked like a tough guy.  He just looked like the ki...

      Vulco, Rodunn and his team of soldiers hunt down Aquaman condemning him of regicide. They tie him with barnacles to a rock on Traitors Reef to carry out his punishment. Aquaman had sunk Atlantis to save the JLA, but in rescuing the ‘lungmen’ he destroyed the city of Atlantis. Every underwater life form has turned its back on him. He tries to telepathically release the barnacles from his hands but even they coldly laugh at him. He manages eventually to break loose but what follows afterwards ge...
