I think this is a great way to establish why Aquaman is not included in a lot of Justice League adventures. Not only does he feel like the loner, but he has more than half of the planet to protect. Plus king duties and all.
A bit sad for him when he mentioned how he feels like the black sheep of the family, with everyone in the League pairing up in 3’s. Maybe they shouldn’t have ditched Shazam after all huh?
