Young Justice[]

In "Downtime", Mera was training her top students, Garth and Tula, when Kaldur'ahm returned. She was overjoyed, to see him again, as she had missed him since his departure to the surface world.

At the banquet later that day, she informed Aqualad, Tula and her brother-in-law Prince Orm that she and Aquaman were expecting their first child.

The festivities however were cut short that night as Atlantis was attacked by Black Manta. Despite her pregnancy and the pleas of her subjects to get to safety for the sake of herself and the child, Queen Mera helped in defending her people, with her impressive magical and water manipulating abilities.

In Young Justice #14: "Under the Surface...", Mera was elated to meet Aqualad's friends, Miss Martian and Superboy, when he brought them for a visit to Atlantis. Orm thought it wiser to limit her time with strangers, since she carried the future ruler of the realm.

Asleep in her quarters, Mera was attacked by purists. Ocean-Master stunned her with his trident, and ordered the purists to take her to his hideout.

In Young Justice #15: "...Here There be Monsters", Mera was chained to a table in front of Ocean-Master's throne. Despite her pleas for her life and that of her unborn child, the villain drained her of her life-force and magic. He admitted to her that his plan was not purely to rid Poseidonis of its impure elements, but to cause a civil war. It was overheard by Ronal, who with Aqualad and his friends' help, turned the tide. Mera was freed, and restored to full power when Garth's tempest power caused Ocean-Master to lose grip of the trident. Mera was safe, but Ocean-Master got away.

With her husband back at her side, Mera thanked Aqualad and his friends for saving her life.

In "Auld Acquaintance", Queen Mera helped create cure-tech that could negate the effects of Starro-tech.
