Biography[]

Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox[]

Flashpoint Reality[]

Mera Flashpoint

Mera in Flashpoint.

Mera was murdered during a confrontation with Wonder Woman who Mera blamed for seducing her husband away from her. A furious Mera headed to Themyscira to fight her but after a vicious fight, Diana beheaded Mera, wears her crown and sent her headless body to Orin, which served as Aquaman's prime motivation for sinking most of Europe and waging war against the Amazons.

Post-Flashpoint[]

Mera was ordered to observe and assess Arthur Curry. Mera would periodically make trips to the surface world and watch Arthur in secret, and appeared to develop a crush on him. She observed Arthur getting drunk, talking to a lobster, beating up men who wanted to eat it, and releasing the lobster into the ocean. Mera returned to Atlantis. After Queen Atlanna met with Prince Orm and Black Manta, Mera shared her report. She didn't think Arthur was ready for the weight of the crown. Atlanna decided Arthur would learn to rule by her side and ordered Mera to bring him to Atlantis after Darkseid was responsible for death of Atlanna's husband.

Mera arrived at Mercy Reef and rose a water spout into air to catch Arthur as he fell out the lighthouse. Mera ordered the Drift One team to stand down and announced Arthur was under her protection by order of Queen Atlanna. The team leader refused and threatened to kill Mera if she didn't hand over Arthur. Mera knocked the soldiers over with her hydrokinetic ability then executed most of them in one stroke with hard water constructs. After finishing off Drift One, Mera dove back into the sea with the unconscious Arthur. She took him to ancient ruins and waited for him to awaken. Mera explained the circustances of his birth and showed him where Atlanna kept the king's royal garbs hidden. Mera declared the garbs were now his. Startled with the revelations, Arthur took to the surface to process everything. They were suddenly attacked by Trenchers then aided by the Justice League. The battle drew Mera and Arthur Curry closer.

The Justice League members took Arthur and Mera with them in a ship to Atlantis but found the royal city nearly deserted. Mera cornered an elderly woman watching them and asked what happened. Shocked by the assassination of Atlanna, Mera quickly realized it was the work of Prince Orm. Orm admitted he was the culprit and neutralized everyone with the Trident. During the Altantean invasion, Mera gave no quarter and put down several Atlantean soldiers. She caught up to Orm and demanded him to stop his genocidal plan. Orm knocked her out with the Trident and had her taken into custody. After Cyborg played back Orm's admission, Orm tried to play it off as surface magic but Mera accused him. Arthur delivered the knock out blow to Orm and convinced the Atlanteans to stand down. Triumphant, he and Mera kissed. Following Arthur’s coronation, Mera reported the Trenchers were on the edge of the royal city. Together, they handled the threat with an army of marine life.

The Death of Superman[]

Mera accompanied Arthur to investigate the deaths of an Atlantean patrol, recently slaughtered by the newly arrived Doomsday. She is also shown to be wearing the Queen's Crown, meaning at somepoint she and Arthur got married and is now the Queen of Atlantis.

Justice League Dark: Apokolips War[]

Mera is present with the rest of the League at the Watchtower, during their briefing of their planned attack on Apokolips, while the Teen Titans remain on Earth to defend it in their absence. Mera, along with the rest of her team, arrive Apokolips, but upon arrival, they are immediately attacked by the Paradooms: genetic hybrids of Parademons and Doomsday. Despite their efforts, most of them were killed or captured (Aquaman included). After the death of her lover, Mera's face was partially torn off, but her life was spared by Darkseid, who replaced her legs with a large cyber snake-like tail, half her face and arms replaced with robot parts, and wields a trident.

Two years later, when the resistance force consisting of a de-powered Superman, John Constantine, Raven, Damian Wayne, and Etrigan infiltrated Apokolips, they are confronted by the Furies, consisting of Mera, Wonder Woman, Martian Manhunter, Hawkman, and Starfire. Along with Hawkman, Mera attacks Superman, who was given a battle suit by Lex Luthor. When Wonder Woman is freed from her mind control, she fights off the Furies by herself to buy time for heroes, but Mera stabs her left shoulder with her trident minutes later. When Cyborg is freed of his programming, the technology of the planet shuts down, and the other Furies are also freed of their mind control. The Furies, recovering the de-powered Flash on the way, managed to arrive just in time for Cyborg to hatch his plan of transporting the heroes to Earth, and Darkseid, Trigon, the Paradooms, and Apokolips (along with himself) to a black void for all eternity.

At the ruins of Titans Tower, despite being victorious, the heroes laments in their failures and losses, as Mera mourns the loss of Aquaman while being comforted by Titus. Mera later watches as Flash resets the timeline, creating a second Flashpoint.
