    Major Story Arcs

    Aquaman v3

    Tiamat awakens when Atlan transports Aquaman beneath Poseidonis (the capital city of Atlantis), to set him on his great quest against an upcoming alien invasion. She confronts Aquaman, claiming she has been worshipped as a goddess since the dawn of mankind, and after a fierce fight she is defeated and retreats.

    It's revealed that she is in league with Kordax and Admiral Strom, and they have plans of conquering the Earth. Due to his less than satisfactory tries to kill Aquaman, Strom is killed by Tiamat who tells Kordax that it's time for their endgame.

    During a worldwide battle that involves all the lost cities of Atlantis and an army of superheores led by Aquaman, Tiamat attacks the White House, where she fights Power Girl and is stalemated by the arrival of Arion, until Aquaman arrives and defeats her with a mental blast, sending her into a magical prison made by Atlan, thus ending her plans for world domination.
