Arthur and Mera are superheroes, members of the Justice League, Atlantean royalty…and really quickly, mother and father. Or reasonably, we hope they’ll quickly be mother and father. In the event you recall, two months in the past in Aquaman #55, Mera assisted Arthur in his all-or-nothing battle with Black Manta and his large “Mecha Manta.” (You kinda have to say that in a monster truck voice to achieve full appreciation of it—MMMMECHA MANTA!!!! See? So a lot better.) Anyhow, Arthur and Mera have been profitable—it helped that that they had a large kaiju monster on their facet—however the battle took rather a lot out of the Queen of Atlantis, who’s, shall we embrace, battling for 2.
Sure, she’s pregnant! Mera and Arthur are welcoming a brand new member of their household. However, as they’ve mentioned, they stay fairly harmful lives. Is it protected for them to welcome a brand new baby into their lives? Actually, our unique first take a look at subsequent week’s Aquaman #57 doesn’t encourage a lot confidence. Exhausted after the battle with Manta, Mera collapses in entrance of Arthur and Vulko. Whereas nobody would doubt Mera’s capabilities and fierceness, battling Black Manta takes every part you’ve received even whenever you’re at your bodily peak. And whenever you’re resulting from have a child very quickly, you’re actually not at your peak. At the least with regards to going toe-to-toe with super-villains.
Will Mera be okay? That continues to be to be seen, however you may get your first trace on this preview of the pivotal upcoming problem.
