DC Comics is swimming in good news this week! Mera: Queen of Atlantis, will be the star of her own eponymous mini-series for DC Comics in February, her first solo outing. Mera, a member of the Justice League in DC Rebirth who is played by Amber Heard in Justice League and the Aquaman movie, has much cooler powers than her sometimes-husband Aquaman, who talks to sea creatures, like Spongebob. Mera can manipulate water and form objects out of "hard water," which can serve as a formidable weapon, but requires regular descaling at least every 90 days to remove calcium deposits.
No, Aquaman! That's not cool either! Just give it up!
The only thing fishy about this series is that it's only six issues long! Hopefully, it leads to an ongoing in the future. The book will be written by Dan Abnett with art by Lan "Funky Cold" Medina. Newsarama had the scoop with a solicit and a Nicola Scott cover. An additional variant cover for the first issue will be drawn by Stanley "Artgerm" Lau. The series hits stores on February 28.
