Background Information

The Earth-One version of the Awesome Threesome (artist Nick Cardy)

On the parallel-universe of Earth-One (in their first comic book appearances),[2] the trio attack the 21st Century Expo and destroy a scale model of Aquaman's city, called the Atlantean Pavilion.

Aquaman, Mera, Aqualad, Aquagirl, and Aquababy inspect the pavilion's remains. With the heroes distracted, the threesome slip into the 'Science Hall'. Their next target is the Gyro-Moleculizer. It is utilized to move the people out of the way. The group declares that the people attending the expo should 'enjoy' their weightless state or be harmed.

Aquaman and Aqualad hear of the attack and enter the hall. They recognize the Threesome and a battle begins. They are defeated and the Moleculizer is destroyed. Nearby, a twelve-foot alien appears and threatens a monorail. The two heroes leave to assist.

All the heroes work together to save the passengers and battle the alien. The alien escapes and the passengers are rescued without harm. Aquaman and Aqualad follow the alien towards Atlantis, dealing with the Threesome and a kraken on the way. When the alien reaches Atlantis, it teleports into a flying saucer and departs.

Questioning Tordpedo, Aquaman learns the alien was a convict whose sentence was five thousand years imprisonment on earth. The Gyro device was keeping it on earth. The Awesome Threesome were being telepathically controlled in order to destroy it.

Aquaman and Aqualad return to the Expo to enjoy what remains of it.
