Aquaman, along with Wonder Woman and their allies, were victorious. The two mad gods Enyo and Triton were slain and imprisoned, respectively. Now Arthur Curry wants nothing more than to continue his quest to reunite the disparate kingdoms that once compromised greater Atlantis. He’s not a shark, however. He can’t only move forward. First, he needs to get his own house in order.
There remains significant fallout from the “Weight of the Waves” event…most significantly the death of Poseidon and Arthur’s own ascension to “Aquagod.” Worship of Poseidon was prevalent among numerous Atlantean religious sects. Many see Arthur as having assumed Poseidon’s place and become their new divinity - confirming that he was, in fact, the one spoken of in Arion’s prophecy, destined to reunite the Underwater (see AQUAMAN #1). How will he handle… being worshipped?
Others, however, find the very concept of “the Aquagod” heretical and blame him for Poseidon’s demise. Among them are Corum Rath and the hardliners that comprise “the Deluge.” They reach out to an enemy of Aquaman that has the power of not just one god, but six: Black Adam! With his ego challenged, will Adam finally face Arthur directly?
Plus, the fact that Triton had a secret cult of Cerulean Lanterns was a revelation that shook the seas. Crablad and Mera are seek to root them out… but is the Cult more deeply entrenched in Xebel than anticipated?

Initial Investigative Report by Dakota Johnson:

Where to start? The entire scene was chaos. The medics had just loaded the severely injured agent KIA OKURA into the ambulance and on the way to the hospital. The injuries were considered life-threatening and her chances of survival look pretty grim.
There were plenty of police, lot's of gunman, a team of...ninjas(?), some kind of assassin and two vigilantes in what could only be described as a warzone. On one side there was DAWN fighting off a new gang in town called THE PRIDE who were looking to get their hands on HTWs. On the other, the enigmatic BAT-WING was single-handedly fighting off the ninja squad who were led by someone calling herself RAVAGER. BAT-WING -we still don't know his identity- held his own against her and the ninjas while still protecting innocent bystanders.
Speaking of innocents, STEVE TREVOR was on the frontline, getting civilians out of harms way and taking out a few gang members. He even took down a ninja or two. I can't can't the number of lives STEVE saved that day. So it is with great regret that I must inform you that STEVE TREVOR died in the line of duty at the hands of RAVAGER while saving others. He went out a hero.
But I must also report that I recently found out that agent STEVE TREVOR was on the payroll of a suspected criminal mastermind whose name is [redacted]. For months he has been feeding [redacted] information on police matters and has even killed on the behalf of [redacted]. In other words STEVE TREVOR was a dirty cop!

End Report. Next Issue: Meet [redacted], Dakota Johnson's new partner!

“Shadows of Venom” part 1
Carl Sands is a thief with a national reputation and is on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list. While being an accomplished thief isn’t enough for inclusion on the FBI list, his penchant for being a modern-day Fagin corrupting and turning children into his criminal minions has. His latest plan is to take possession of a liter and a half of venom, a drug known to cause powerful addiction as well as probable damage to the body and psyche. But venom does increase the human body’s strength and stamina many times over making it a very valuable commodity.
Hawkwoman and Hawkman’s police contacts all have the planned theft on their radar as the path of the drug has gone through Russia, Western Europe and the United States. The likely location of the theft is a branch of star Labs located in … Gotham City. When Shayera and Katar arrive to speak with GC Police Commissioner Jim Gordon, he listens politely but basically states that the GCPD can handle it. Watch as the Hawks meet Gotham’s protector, the Batman.
And the listening devices Captain Byth gave CAW (Collective Assistance for Worlds) so they could clandestinely listen in on our heroes works perfectly. Thanagarian electronics are the best, no doubt about it.
To be concluded in Detective Comics #18

“Shadows of Venom” Part 2
Batman’s notes: “A shipment of venom is coming to Gotham’s Star Labs. While a major event and threat under normal circumstances, Commissioner Gordon has given credibility to two alien dilettantes who fancy themselves law enforcement officers. The Thanagarians, Hawkwoman and Hawkman, seek to learn from Earth about their law enforcement techniques. Their desired lesson is the protection of possibly the most dangerous non-radioactive substance on the planet from a thief with few peers worldwide. The thief, Carl Sands, wants to use his crew of child thieves with venom filled insulin pumps in order to avoid notice and to strengthen the youth enough to give any adult a run for their money. Will the aliens be a help or a hindrance? And care must be taken not to disturb any other work or experiments at Star Labs going on.”

To Dick Grayson, the name Nightwing is a point of pride. It represents the best version of himself. His independence, his drive to help others.
To Cheyenne Freemont, Nightwing is an inspiration, a shining example to aspire to. The first hero to stand up for the vulnerable and marginalized in her city.
To both of them, the rise of a criminal cartel named Nightwing in Blüdhaven feels like a massive, intentionally targeted insult to the name.
Rest assured, Dick has a *lot* to say about it in his latest therapy sessions with Dr. Madeline Le May. The new Red X’s murder was bad enough — but seeing the Nightwing name dragged through the mud might be the tipping point. And it doesn’t feel like a coincidence to him.
Between Dick and Chey, they manage to determine that the Nightwing Syndicate began a meteoric rise about two months ago, a few weeks before the first appearances of the new Red X.
And they’re making their fortunate in Xenothium-powered weaponry – the same dangerous tech that poisoned Dick’s mind, and powers the Red X suit.
That gives Chey an idea – if they track Xenothium, they’ll either find Red X, the Nightwing Syndicate, or both.
It isn’t long before they find themselves hot on the trial of the imposter himself!
Cornered by Dick and Nightwing, Red X refuses to take off the mask.
But they do protest their innocence – well, to the murder.
Red X claims to be stealing their tech from Nightwing, and offers to lead Dick and Chey straight to them!
They can’t trust Red X – but they can they afford to let this opportunity pass by?
