Black Manta brought Vandal Savage aboard the Sub to visit the still-catatonic Kaldur'ahm. Manta swore vengeance against Miss Martian, but Savage brought Psimon into the room. They must first restore Kaldur's mind, and Psimon is the albino telepath for the job.
Before Psimon could probe too deeply and blow her cover, Tigress secretly sedated him with a drug that mimicked catatonia. She convinced Black Manta that Miss Martian must have planted a psychic bomb, and would be the only one who could undo the damage. Miss Martian was subsequently captured, and brought to Aqualad's quarters. All of her powers, save her telepathy, were suppressed by an inhibitor collar. She began to cure Kaldur's mind.
While the completely recovered Aqualad plotted with Tigress to free Miss Martian, Cheshire and Sportsmaster infiltrate the Manta-Sub to avenge Artemis's death. Their interference allowed Miss Martian to escape, and both Aqualad and Tigress to maintain cover, but at a cost—both assassins were now aware of their ruse.
