Synopsis for "What Matters Most"
Aquaman's old foe, Thanatos, secretly monitors him from within his private chambers in Dimension Aqua. Having witnessed Aquaman suffer a severe injury at the hands of Black Manta, Thanatos decides to torment his adversary by manipulating his dreams. Aquaman sees visions of his old allies, the Justice League, turning their backs on him. He also sees visions of Mera and his late son, Aquababy, both of whom continue to blame Aquaman for Aquababy's death. Aquaman eventually wakens and finds Doctor Diade and Vulko standing over him. He asks Vulko if he believes Aquababy would ever forgive him for letting him die, and Vulko tells him that he does.
- Black Manta killed Aquababy in Adventure Comics #452.
- The physical representation of Arthur Curry, Jr., as presented in this issue, is more in line with that of A.J., another son of Mera who will be introduced in future issues.
