Re: What? No! Aquaman is not Married to Mera! Why Would You

Turns out, at the launch of the New 52, Aquaman's writer Geoff Johns had absolutely ZERO problem with Mera being referred to as Aquaman's wife (from a Maxim interview with Geoff Johns back when the launch was going on):

You made Aquaman’s wife, Mera, a much more prominent character – how come?
For me, her background is really interesting. She felt very strong to me, her hydroconnect powers are very interesting - controlling the water is visually beautiful and I felt the character was very appealing. That’s why we introduced her in Blackest Night and had her stand on her own before we brought Aquaman in. You know, I think people respond to the character because she is such a strong, confident kickass superhero.

So nice try to make yourselves look non-homophobic, DC, but no cigar.
