Mera in "The Flashpoint Paradox"

Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox is the newest animated superhero film, an adaptation of the 2011 comic book crossover "Flashpoint" by Geoff Johns and Andy Kubert. Directed by Jay Oliva and scripted by Jim Krieg, this is the 17th film in the DC Universe Animated Original Movies series.

After an alliance between the Atlanteans and the Amazons, Aquaman and Princess Diana slept together, but are seen by Queen Mera (Aquaman's wife). Mera confronts Diana leading to a fight which results in Mera's death. Diana wears Mera's crown as a trophy, and Aquaman declares war on the Amazons.

Does it look familiar?

What's that final picture from? My first thought was the Wonder Woman animated movie but the style doesn't look right.

I randomly bought the third season of Brave and the Bold at Target yesterday and just about an hour ago I saw the episode with Mera. I was thinking how it was the first time I saw her animated, but now I see she's had a handful of appearances.

Very cool blog. I've been a fan for quite a while.

Actually there are several animated versions of Mera: The 60's version from the Aquaman TV show, the 2000's version from the Justice League TV show, the 2010 version from Young Justice, the version you mentioned from Brave and the Bold, and this most recent incarnation from the Flashpoint animated movie.
