" the brutal 'Atlantean Civil War' rages, 'Mera' must keep the peace between the surface world and 'Atlantis' as its newly anointed queen in exile. But when Aquaman's brother 'Orm', aka 'Ocean Master', learns of his homeland's fate, he'll stop at nothing to return to Atlantis as its king and savior..."

Actress Amber Heard plays Mera in the features "Justice League" and "Aquaman".

"It’s interesting", said Heard about her 'Mera'  wardrobe. "It’s like, half a suit of armor and half scales.

The comic book character Mera debuted in DC's "Aquaman" #11 (September 1963), created by writer Jack Miller and illustrator Nick Cardy... the former 'Queen of Dimension Aqua', 'Queen of Atlantis' and wife of 'Arthur Curry' aka 'Aquaman'.

In her first appearance, Mera is fleeing the criminal 'Leron', who seized control of her kingdom, when she arrives on the surface and meets the human Aquaman, who vows to help her. 

But Leron captures them, imprisoning Aquaman and Mera in 'Dimension Aqua'.

Aided by the water spirit 'Quisp', Aquaman frees Mera and defeats Leron. Mera abdicates the throne of 'Xebel' to 'Queen V'lana', returning to Atlantis to marry Aquaman.
