Mera: Queen of Atlantis #1

Haven't read the Aquaman title for maybe a year now. Excited to hear Mera was getting a title. This wasn't bad per se - but it was disappointing. Too much recap pages/focus on Aquaman, informative though it is, for a premiere about Mera. Aquawoman is in the JL now?!! *whoa* Haven't read the JL title in over a year. They aren't very helpful. Tula is a bodyguard therapist?!! She seems unbelievably more acclimated to surfer life already than Teen Titan Aqualad ever was. Orm is married?!! Okay, he could be a cool 'arch enemy' for the title. Mera's ultimate goal is to pass on royal station and desires to be stay at home in bedroom and kitchen??! That doesn't seem a very topical personality for a new superheroine book. Going to have to get #2 just to better judge this nostalgically likable character. The 0-Day replies at fourchan were entertaining and informative to me - see copypasta below...

    >comparing a pre-established character that has 55 years of history and has been an important part not only of aquaman's cast but to DC's lore for most of those years to America who is a Mary-sue shoved in on a whim with no explanation or set up whatsoever.

    I think the art in this was pretty good but Mera's face in the second panel is terrible.

    Orm has not been in Abnett's run. Last time he was around was johns run and the forever evil 1 shot. Him returning probably means we are getting close to johns seven seas story.

    Bout time Ocean Master came back into the limelight. Now I'm wondering whether he's just using Rath for his own ends to get some secret Atlantis magic tech or if Rath is acting on his own. Someone freed him from prison so it's more than likely Ocean Master who freed him. Would be cool if it was a new villain.

    I love Mera. But I feel bummed that she's chained to Aquaman
