Synopsis for "Single Wet Female"
The injured Aqualad wakes up long enough to see a person he thinks is Tula, before falling back into unconsciousness.
Charybdis explains his plan to poison the Earth to Aquaman, then kills Scylla in a fit of insanity. She wasn't the real Scylla, his old partner, who died when a bomb went off in her hands.
Garth wakes up, the woman is there and tells him where Aquaman is, but leaves before he can confirm it is Tula.
Charybdis, trying out Aquaman's power of control over sea-life, learns that Aquaman doesn't control, he "suggests", "bargains" and "cajoles".
Garth gets a whale to break into Charybdis' stronghold, and Aquaman breaks free and chases Charybdis to the armory. Garth, however, has gotten there first, and starts a chain reaction. Everyone escapes.
Aquaman confronts Charybdis on land, and Charybdis forces Aquaman's hand into a river teeming with Pirahna, which Aquaman can't control. Dolphin shoots Charybdis, who then falls into the river himself.
Aquaman shows Dolphin his destroyed hand.
- This storyline continues in Aquaman #0.
- Cron One-Eye is an old shark whom Aquaman wounded when he was still an infant on Mercy Reef (hence the nickname "One-Eye").
- The Scylla who appears in this issue is not the real Scylla, but merely an actress that Charybdis hires to pose as his late wife. She is not to be confused with the Un-Man Scylla from the American Freak limited series by Vertigo.
- The woman that Aqualad believes is Tula is actually Letifos of the Sher'hedeen.
- The tagline to this issue is "To the Bone!"
- The letters column for this issue fades to white, just like the closing scenes from many of the "Zero Hour" spotlight issues for September and October of 1994.
