Mera Trivia!

Step right up Aqua-fans and test your knowledge of everybody's favorite Queen of the Seas -- Mera!

The rules are simple: the first person to post all ten correct answers in the comments section wins a super-groovy copy of Aquaman #18 (a significant issue in comics history as recently iterated by our good friend Paul Ku
pperberg)! Answers in the comments will be accepted but not visible between 9:03 am EST and 8:03 pm EST (DEADLINE EXTENDED) at which time comments received will be visible, the post will be updated with the correct answers and the identity of the lucky winner revealed!

The Aquaman Shrine maintains the right to judge all entries based on the degree to which they accurately satisfy questions (so be as specific as possible) and the decision of the judges shall be binding & final (how's that for some small print?). OK, here we go!

1. Mera's home-world, originally referred to as Dimension Aqua, was notably distinct from Aquaman's undersea home in that it lacked what?

2. Superman & Mera have what weakness in common that blocks certain aspects of their powers?

3. During Blackest Night, Mera faced off individually against Black Lantern versions of 4 of her former DCU female peers...name them!

4. During the epic "Search for Mera" story-line, Mera was revealed to have been kidnapped by what nefarious undersea villain?

5. Elena Satine is the answer...what is the question?

6. Current
Aquaman writer Geoff Johns likens his portrayal of Mera to that of a female character from a hit 2007 fantasy-action film: name the character & the film.

7. Mera was created by what two creators?

8. Blue or green?

9. What Aquaman writer described Mera as "a woman from the world of dark gods"?

10. Where did Mera (without Aquaman) meet the deadly Manta Men?

Update: To give our West Coast fans some extra time, we have extended the deadline of the contest to 8pm EST. So if you were planning to try and answer the quiz, you still have some time!
