Aquaman and Mera: King and Queen of Atlantis by Kiarou Aquaman and Mera: King and Queen of Atlantis by Kiarou
Arthur Curry, son of Tom Curry and Atlanna Curry. His father was a lighthouse keeper and on his father's deathbed he discovered that his mother was a runaway Princess from the lost city of Atlantis. Arthur's mothers trained him in his Atlantean abilities. When he was ready, they returned to Atlantis.
The Atlantean people were not so accepting to their new heir, however. Despite this, Arthur lived in Atlantis and took up arms against the Mermaid invasion. However, Arthur found love on the battlefield.
Mera, a fine warrior in the Mermaid ranks found love with Arthur and ran from the Empire to hide amongst the Atlanteans. When the Atlantean people found out that a half-breed was harboring a Mermaid they exiled them, despite Arthur being the rightful heir.
On to the surface Mera and Arthur lived and made a life for themselves, even getting married. However, trouble followed as the Atlanteans invaded the surface.
During the conflict the King of Atlantis, Arthurs Uncle, is killed and Arthur is named the new king. His first order, to retreat. Arthur and Mera were now the King and Queen of Atlantis, but of a new breed with interest invested in both the sea and the surface, they joined the Justice League as Aquaman and Mera in a means to keep friendly contact with both worlds.

Aquaman! He's no one's favorite hero, becuase he's useless, right?
Aquaman is awesome (when written right) and the n52 is doing it right. It's really awesome and I love Mera and Arthur together. Honestly, Mera should be part of the Justice League too, but whatever.

Oooh, I like this one a lot. I like the little details on this one alot. You made Aquaman more interesting. I he doesn't look like a sims character of King Arthur. Mainly happy wit the details on the female outfit and Aqua man's outfit is separated, like the recent Batman films but not so much for armor as for utility. Looks like pretty thick and legit armor, though.

Nice work! I could see these designs in the upcoming Injustice: Gods Among Us DC video game. And don't worry, Mera will be in the JL very soon :) It was teased in the free comic book day DC book.

I love these two as independent and as a couple, but designs and story rock

I also think Mera should be a part of the Justice League, I just got the feelign she and Wonder Woman would be friends seeign they're both strong warriors from different worlds from us humans

I love how Geoff Johns is making him such an awesome character and I wish he used your designs for Aquaman and Mera.

What can I say? Aquaman (used correctly) is an excellent character. It's true that he's much more effective in water, but then there are several ways that can be used right.
