"Your mother would have gone to the surface world to stop that thing. But she's not here, so it has to be you."
―Mera to Arthur Curry[src]

Y'Mera "Mera" Xebella Challa is an Atlantean warrior, the princess of Xebel and an ally of Arthur Curry.


Justice League

Mera was in Atlantis with a handful of soldiers protecting one of the Mother Boxes which had been activated. Steppenwolf arrived via his Boomtube and attacked and killed some of the Atlantean soldiers. As he swam towards the Mother Box in the attempt to grab it, Mera created shock waves which stunned him for a short time. The New God quickly recovered and charged against Mera, throwing her with great force leaving her unconscious. Aquaman arrived and engaged Steppenwolf but was also overpowered by the New God's superior strength.

After failing to stop the Mother Box from being taken, Mera approached Arthur creating a bubble around them so they could talk. As Arthur showed concern over her, Mera replied with disdain, as she told him that he was the son of Queen Atlanna and it was his responsibility to follow and stop Steppenwolf. Before leaving Arthur asked Mera to give him the Atlantean Royal Armor and the Trident to help in his quest.


"You think you're unworthy to lead because you're of two different worlds? That is exactly why you ARE worthy!"
―Mera to Arthur Curry[src]
