Aquawoman is the Queen of Atlantis and protector of the seas for the Allies during World War II.

Year One (1940)

Wonder Woman asked Mera to help her break Steve Trevor out of his Amazonian prison before he could be executed. The three of them, then, headed out to help prevent evil from taking over the world.

They were immediately attacked by Nazi forces on the coast of Greece and had their first taste of battle.

Mera joined up with the British Navy and helped them take down several German subs. They soon crossed paths with Supergirl and Stargirl. Believing that they were enemies at first and battling it out, Mera soon found out that they were both runaways. She made peace with them both and they joined her with the Navy fleet.

They eventually make port in London, where Mera discovers naval mines in the deep waters, as well as a Kraken that is controlled by the current ruler of Atlantis, Nereus, Mera's brother-in-law. She is able to defeat it, however, with the help of Supergirl, but at the cost of some of Mera's powers.

During the Battle of Britain, Mera focused on attacking from the creatures of the sea. Eventually, she was drained of all her powers and, now mortal, was captured by Nereus' minions.

Year Two (1941)

When she escaped from their captivity, she was rescued by Arthur Curry and taken to his lighthouse on the coast of Ireland to recover. Over time, she bonded with Arthur and began to fall in love with him. She seemed to have settled down nicely until Hagen, Cardinal of Atlantis, arrived to ask for her help in rescuing the kingdom from Nereus' control. He restored Mera's powers and she gathered her army to march on Atlantis.

Mera arrived in Atlantis only to find Nereus dead and her sister Hila in charge. The two of them battled it out over Hila's jealousy of her sister but Mera eventually got through to her and the two of them got past their differences. Mera was crowned the Queen of Atlantis instead and offered her castle as a safe hold for German refugees.

Year Three (1942)

Mera is approached by Harley Quinn and Pamela Ysley who both ask her for permission to leave so that they may help with the famine in the Soviet Union. Mera gives them her blessing and provides them with enough food for the trip. For transportation, Mera also gives them her pet stingray, named Fawkes.
