Origin

Mera was born the child of the king and queen of Xebel. The King believed that it was the King of Atlantis who had imprisoned the kingdom of Xebel in another dimension. To get revenge on the long dead King he trained Mera to assassinate the current King and also showed her how to pass through the dimension barrier that trapped Xebel. She was also engaged to the Xebel military leader Nereus and they were to be married upon her return. When she got to the surface world she was shocked to find that the King was a great man named Arthur and not an evil tyrant like she was told, this made her changed her mind about the King and Atlantis. Arthur then asked her to lunch as he was intrigued about where she came from and how she could control water. During dinner she remembers a message that her father gave her, from her mother. In the message her mother says she should choose her own path in life.

Aquaman and Mera vs. the Trench

Having decided to completely abandon Xebel to pursue a life on land with Arthur. Amnesty Bay is attacked by a carnivorous underwater species called The Trench, and Aquaman and Mera fend off the invasion.[1]

Mera and Aquaman follow the Trench, having taken hostages to the Marianas Trench, where they discovered the predators dying out and desperately trying to feed their children in the remnants of an Atlantean craft. Mera and Arthur save the captives, and Aquaman reluctantly causes the Trench's extinction by pushing a tectonic plate over the trenches lair, to prevent further loss of human life. After this incident Arthur and Mera adopt one of the victim's dog and name it Aquadog.[2]

Shortly after the events of the Trench Mera is shopping for dog food when the store manager harasses her. She brakes the manager's arm and the police try to arrest her. She struggles until she overhears a hostage situation with lives at stake so willingly gives herself up. When the police get to the crime scene Mera brakes out and apprehends the man who was threatening to kill his daughter, she then flees the scene. Later a girl named Jennifer Posey from the store visits her with supplies from the store, and says that she is willing to food for the dog whenever it is needed, as she knew what really happened at the store.[3]

She has very fine control over it and can cause it to take the shape or form she chooses.[15] As well as strike out in hard splashes and cutting waves.[16][17][18][19] 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.[20][21] She cannot control snow or ice.[22]
