Maelstrom Part 2 of 6
Arthur takes Vulko out of prison wells of Atlantis and orders him to tell him what happened to Arthur's mother, Atlanna. Vulko swears he saw her die but had nothing to do with it. That is when Martian Manhunter reveals himself and after reading Vulko's mind he reveals that Vulko is telling the truth.
Later, at the Nautila Theater, Martian Manhunter uses his physic powers to tap into Atlantis's memory to see that Atlanna hadn't been blown up like everyone believed. He also sees that she spoke with a stranger just before her apparent death.
Arthur tries to use a Seeing Stone to where Atlanna went but instead it causes Manhunter to go insane. It takes both Arthur and Mera to bring Manhunter under control, that's when Manhunter reveals he saw the portal that Atlanna uses to escape Atlantis.
