Since this review of Secret Origins #5 is going up so soon after it was published, we're going to avoid getting into too much detail on the plot, as not to spoil it for those who haven't read it yet. Aqua-Fans, you can proceed safely.
Mera is sure of her mission, until she actually meets her target, who is not anything like what she has been told:
I am absolutely thrilled that Mera is getting a solo story this soon into Secret Origins' run. This represents her new found prominence in the DCU, something that's been building ever since Blackest Night. The story of their first meeting is quite charming; Jeff Parker seems to firing on all cylinders right now when it comes to Aquaman!
