Mera becomes a spokesperson for Hostess

Mera starred in several ads for the Hostess fruit pies. These ads were designed in a comic book adventure format. Today, we present the first one in the series; the story is titled "Aquaman and the space capsule".

One day Aquaman, Mera,and Aqualad receive an alert from their monitor. There is an object about to crash near Atlantis! Mera thinks it's a meteor.

Aquaman and Aqualad go to investigate, and find a U.S. space capsule sinking into the bottom of the ocean. The king of the seven seas uses his telepathic powers to have some porpoises bring the capsule to Atlantis.

It ends up being that the visitors are actually astronauts from the surface, who think they have arrived to some underwater world. Aquaman tries to convice them that they are from Earth as well, and Mera brings them proof... a tray with hostess fruit pies! Once the misunderstanding has been clarified, the austronauts enjoy their delicious fruit pies.
