How Black Manta joined the Tourney

As forces converge upon Atlantis and its King, a current of vengeance flows through the ruthless undersea mercenary known as Black Manta. Sworn to avenge the death of his father, Black Manta has long waited in darkness for his moment to strike.

Determined to avenge his father, Black Manta seeks the help of a bumbling warrior named Yajirobe. He forces him to join the second Tourney to get close to Aquaman.
