Mera is one of the hottest and most badass characters in DC’s Aquaman. With her good looks, natural charm, and fiery disposition, it’s hard not to fall in love with this redhead. Here are 5 facts about Mera that not many people know about:
She was originally meant to kill Aquaman.
It was not always been flowery for Aquaman and Mera, and although they are celebrated to one of the most amazing couples in the DC Universe, it wasn’t just that. She was originally from Xebel, or Dimension Aqua, a place where criminals get banished. She escaped from this place and found Aquaman on Earth, falling in love with him instead of trying to end his life.
She rules Atlantis in Aquaman’s place.
When a takeover is underway and Aquaman is nowhere to be found near the throne, Mera takes the throne and leads the people of Atlantis to victory.
She has a bad temper.
It isn’t just her red hair that’s fiery, it’s also her temper. Although she’s always been like that, it has gotten worse over time and it showed clearly when they lived on land and she couldn’t adjust to their normal human life as opposed to being royalty underwater.
She is a member of the Justice League (Atlantis).
Although not part of the main Justice League, she still was part of the subgroup ‘Justice League of Atlantis’ made by Aquaman after a certain Hector Hammond made everyone forget about the real Justice League. This was short-lived, of course, but it’s undeniable that it happened.
She is always going to be a royal.
In Xebel, she was queen, but she revoked that title when she fled and ended up with Aquaman, making her queen of Atlantis.
