Keeping the peace



Source: MERA Gets Her First-Ever Solo Title

Comic fans know Mera mostly through her appearances in Aquaman titles. A larger (probably) audience will get to know the Queen of Atlantis when she makes an appearance in the Justice League movie. Perhaps some of that audience then will be game for Mera's first solo title, Mera: Queen of Atlantis.

Mera: Queen of Atlantis will be a six-issue miniseries featuring (shocker) Mera, and some trouble via Aquaman's brother Ocean Master in his pursuit of power. The miniseries will be written by Dan Abnett with art by Lan Medina and will wash up into stores February 28, 2018.

Here's the solicitation for the first issue:

MERA: QUEEN OF ATLANTIS #1
Written by DAN ABNETT
Art by LAN MEDINA
Cover by NICOLA SCOTT
Variant cover by STANLEY "ARTGERM" LAU
From the pages of AQUAMAN comes a brand-new adventure starring Mera, in her own title for the first time ever!
As the brutal Atlantean Civil War rages, Mera must keep the peace between the surface world and Atlantis as its newly anointed queen in exile. But when Aquaman's brother Orm, a.k.a. Ocean Master, learns of his homeland's fate, he'll stop at nothing to return to Atlantis as its king and savior!
On sale FEBRUARY 28 • 32 pg, FC, 1 of 6, $3.99 US • RATED T

Fans will get more Mera after this miniseries when she appears in the Aquaman movie December 2018.

Hey, if they want to do that, it's their business. But as far as I'm concerned, a supporting character to one of the bigger jokes in the DCU, now about to be an even bigger joke as Jason Mamoa's surfer bro dead fish hits the big screen, is probably not going to score big sales numbers. Though Mera will probably be better in the movie than Mackerel Man.

Noc speaks the truth. Mera became one of the prominent and better characters in the "Darkest Night" event and continued that right up to Rebirth. In Abnett's current Aquaman title he has turned Mera into an incredible force. She deserves her own mini-series. :smt023

Mera is okay but nothing special. I dont expect big numbers for this series but considering that the solo Aquaman movie cost more than Wonder Woman, Warner Bros will be going all out to try and convince a wider audience beyond fanboys that Aquaman is cool and worth supporting.

Personally, I've always liked Mera better than her hubby. That may just be the "hot redhead" fetish taking over my brain again, but I've always thought her powers were cooler, and now that Abnett has, as you said, upped her badass level, I'm an even bigger fan. Sign me up for this too.

Nope my correctness was confirmed by Ivy, the truthseeker. I'm certain if ivy backed me up no evidence exists on the internet to contradict me. :smt045
