During all my years as a member on the now-defunct DC Message Boards, Mera was by far the most requested (ie.. begged and pleaded for) figure. I'm actually still not sure if I've ever read a single story starring her character, but somehow I'm a fan. This figure actually may be a large part of my fondness for the character. She looks fantastic - a perfect rendition of the regal Queen of Atlantis and wife of Aquaman. The Brightest Day storyline became an amazing opportunity for DC Direct to release all the heavily-demanded figures during the twilight of the company. They finally created figures of Mera, Jade, Hawk, and Dove and released long overdue updates of Deadman, Hawkgirl, Firestorm, and Aqualad. And none of these figures were last-minute hodgepodge attempts to make their soon-to-be-abandoned fanbase happy. No, these figures were pretty much perfect. I feel like I'm always lamenting the loss of DC Direct, but I think it's undeniable that we'll never see a company producing quality products at this frequency ever again. But alas, DC Collectibles is doing okay so far (if you like video games). Let's check out Mera!
Mera come with her signature Trident and a figure stand with the Brightest Day logo.
The Karen Palinko sculpt is stunning.
Here are a handful of images of Mera from the comics.
She's not extremely poseable, but the range of motion in her neck gives more variety than you'd expect. Her hands also don't grip her trident tightly, so it's kind of a balancing act trying to get it to stay in the position you want.
Time for a Comparison Pic!
