You didn't know who Mera was before BN.

They're doing A TON with the characters in BD, new Aqualad, Black Manta's return, Mera's history being touched on....

But the one thing still missing in this puzzle is something new with Aquaman himself. Just bringing him back won't turn heads, bringing him back in a similar fashion as Barry and then giving him a mini and an ongoing seems to be as good a formula as any. Instead of Rebirth give us a Year One if you have to, then go on to a new ongoing.

I just want the focus back on Aquaman, not his entire supporting cast and more new supporting cast members....

And for the record I really wanted Tempest's powers to get dumbed down to water manipulation, marine telepathy, and undoing magic or something and for him to become the new Aquaman. I even started a fanfic around the idea calling it "Legacy of Aquaman."

The formula they're using for Aquaman in Brightest Day is fine. About 95% of the comic community don't know much about him, his rogues, or origin - with this event they can bypass that with minor briefs on his past with flashbacks(as they've been doing) and show him in action, proving his worth to the common reader who had no interest in him before.

I'm against an Aquaman Rebirth(that's my gamertag on xbox live, if you want to add me), because his revival wasn't like Barry's or Hal's, Arthur came back with a bunch of heroes during Blackest Night - no need for a Rebirth mini to do what Brightest Day is doing right now. I would love to see them do an Aquaman Secret Origin, which would be a perfect opening for a new ongoing after BD.

I own Crisis on Infinite Earths. She appears in that, Although she looks slightly different.

I know about her hard water constructs.

And I have her Who's Who entry.

I consider myself an Aquaman fan, and I didn't know Mera could make water constructs until BN....

But then again I only have some older Aquaman books and a couple from the hook hand era, and the last series from 1-30ish.

Lorena is currently on the team but she is supposedly making an appearance soon in Brightest Day. I hope she returns as Aquaman's sidekick and Jackson sticks with the Titans.

Hey, A-Train, looks like you've got enough now to make a social group.

She shouldn't be. Before he came back she was whoring it up. When he came back, they've done nothing but argue with very brief moments of acceptance. Their relationship is the worst in comics. Its probably a good basis on why Superman and Wonder Woman should never be together as well.
