"The Others, Chapter Six"[]

Mera searches through Shin's things, hoping to find a clue about his whereabouts. Suddenly, she finds a phone and answers. The caller is The Operative, who informs her about The Others. Mera replies that Black Manta took Ya'Wara's relic and kidnapped Shin. Agreeing to meet with the Others, Mera swims to the Operative's plane. Gathered with the Others, Mera enters into an argument with Ya'Wara, both saying that Arthur has not been himself ever since they met the other. The Prisoner says that Arthur went to the Dead King's tomb to kill Manta.

At the Dead King's tomb, Manta has just uncovered the Dead King's scepter. He then orders his soldiers to kill Shin, but Aquaman quickly attacks. Manta uses the scepter, easily pinning Aquaman down. In that moment, Mera and the Others appear on the scene and engage Manta's forces.

Believing Shin to be responsible for this, Ya'Wara attacks him, but Vostok-X stops her, saying that Shin is truly regretful for what happened. Suddenly, Manta tries to attack Aquaman from behind, but Vostok takes the blow, getting mortally wounded.

Manta and his soldiers escape and Vostok dies, but not before recognizing Aquaman and the Others as his true friends. Mourning his friend's death, Aquaman swears vengeance on Manta.
