A while ago, we visited Mera's retconned origin told in the pages of "Brightest Day." Issue #6 of the new Aquaman series elaborates more on that origin. In the DCnU Mera was still leader of Xebel 's Death Squad, and her mission was to kill the so-called King of Atlantis!
Although everyone in Xebel has the capability to manipulate water to create solid constructs, Mera is far more powerful than her compatriots; not only at a large scale, but also at a molecular level.

No supporting character in comics has been due a solo story longer than Mera, but her moment has finally come thanks to Geoff Johns, who ever since"Blackest Night" has taken great strides to ensure that everyone gets to know and love her. In this spotlight issue, Mera goes to town and things go wrong as soon as she starts interacting with the locals. Although somewhat pedestrian and a bit condescending, the story shows an aspect of Mera's power that had never been seen before: not only can she move the oceans, but also manipulate water at a molecular level and display fine motor control. "Deserted" also touches on her past; one that had been visited briefly prior to the reboot in "Brightest Day," but here, the added elements clearly connect her family to whatever it is that's coming next. Joe Prado did a good job with the art, but Ivan Reis was greatly missed.

Mera appears in the DC Universe Online game. Prior to the launch of the game, when teasers were being released, it was established that Mera had abandoned Aquaman. During the game, however, she resurfaces apparently attacking Metropolis. It is later revealed that this was not Mera, but Circe -Wonder Woman's nemesis- in disguise. After the players are able to free Aquaman from Cercei's hold, he and Mera return to Atlantis to protect their kingdom.

A couple of days ago, we got to see the upcoming Mera lead figurine from Eaglemoss. Today we take a look at the cover of the companion magazine, which is the first-ever Mera solo title. The art is from Brightest Day by Ivan Reis, and the logo used is the one that debuted during Wonder Woman: Blackest Night. This will also be the third time ever that Mera gets a cover to herself; the other two times are 1995's Aquaman #12 and 2012's Aquaman #6.
