Reprinted from Michael Turner's Fathom (Vol 2) #6
*The underwater battle of Muria between the humans and the Blue (Fathom: Volume 2 [Indexed as Michael Turner's Fathom (Vol 1)]) sent ripples across the oceans and the world below and beyond. Attempting to contain the frustration and response to the Humans' attack on their very existence, Siphon of the Blue struggles under the weight and decisions of such a responsibility -- choices that will set the course for their existence forever.
Kiani was successful in finally discovering the truth about her parents, but is even more stunned when she realizes her father is the murderous dissident Killian. Together, father and daughter have united in their unbridled hatred for the surface world above, and set off on a mission to destroy as many humans along the way as possible to mark the dawn of a new era of reprisals against the human race.
Aspen Matthews and Chance Galloway set off on their own following the thwarted Human invasion of Muria, preferring a life of solitude as opposed to further interfering in the life of the Blue. However, their vacation is cut short by the arrival of Cannon Hawke who persuades Aspen to return to the ocean and Muria. Once there, Aspen reaffirms her position not to get involved in matters of the Blue, yet the pair do manage to kidnap the imprisoned Tigershark Anderson along the way in order to help find her captive brother, Finn.
After escaping Chris Calloway and the Tigersharks ambush and a successful rescue of Finn from the Navy's secret facility, Aspen, Chance, and Finn reach safe haven and discover the Black's imminent plan for destroying the Florida coast. Calloway and Admiral Maylander are brought together by Secretary Mitchell and the US President to plan their offensive against the Black's Onslaught. However, when their objective takes a fatal turn, Siphon and the fleet of the Elite Council arrive to thwart the Black for the time being, leading to the shocking revelation of the Blue's presence to the human world. A decision that will change the course of the Blue's existence forever. *Source: Title Page
