Having learned that Arthur had entered the Kingdom of Atlantis illegally, Murk, along with border control and a few Man-Of-War soldiers, ambushed Arthur, Mera, and Vulko. Although, Mera and Vulko escaped the scene without anyone else knowing they were ever there, Murk was able to subdue and knock out the resisting Arthur before delivering him to Orm.
Murk tried to stop Aquaman and Mera from getting to the Trident of Atlan along with Black Manta, but failed. In the process, Mera shattered his helmet's water supply, forcing him to dunk his head into a toilet bowl (the nearest available body of water) to keep from suffocating.
