- -- Mera src
History of character is unknown.
- Hydrokinesis: Mera can control water. She has very fine control over it and can cause it to take the shape or form she chooses. As well as strike out in hard splashes and cutting waves. She does need water to manipulate, she cannot create it. But she can pull it from creative places including from inside a human's body. She cannot control snow or ice.
- Superhuman Strength: Mera's strikes crash like tidal waves. When fighting off the Trench she displayed that she could crack their subhuman skulls with just a single strike. While above water she was able to snap a man's arm just by adding some pressure to it.
- Superhuman Speed: Mera can swim at speeds that match her partner's and possibly surpass them.
- Amphibious Nature: Mera can breath just fine above water with seemingly no limit to the length she can spend there. She can remain underwater indefinitely and has no problem breathing and speaking while submerged.
- Swimming: Mera has lived underwater her whole life as such she is an expert in swimming and has taken to it like humans take to walking.
- Hand-to-Hand Combat (Advanced): Mera was trained by her father to murder the King of Atlantis, as such she went through rigorous fights in order to prepare herself. She's fought Black Manta to a standstill.
