Who is Mera? The answer may elude all but the most enthusiastic DC comic fans. In the comics, Mera is Aquaman’s wife, the Queen of Atlantis, and one of the most powerful beings in the DC Universe. She is one of the many reasons Aquaman is amazing. Everyone else will know her from her appearance in Justice League, in which she’s played by Amber Heard. And while she didn’t have much screen time in Justice League, Mera has a more pivotal role in 2018’s Aquaman. So, it’s essential we get to know more about the exiled Queen of Xebel and her comic book origins.
Mera Has The Power Of Aquakinesis
Since Mera’s introduction in the comics, she’s had the power of aquakinesis. In Justice League Vol. 3 #24, Mera uses her abilities against the Justice League. She traps Superman and Wonder Woman in water, removes Green Lantern’s ring, and manipulates the water in the Flash’s body to dehydrate him.
After the release of Justice League, audiences were disappointed by the absence of Mera’s powers. One of the primary dissatisfactions came from the decision to have her character create air bubbles to aid conversation underwater. It was a quick solution to have dialogue underwater, but ultimately unsatisfactory for moviegoers. Luckily, Mera will exhibit more of her powers in Aquaman.
