Mera and The Sub-Mariner



As with yesterday's cover, this is another pairing that I have been meaning to get to for a while.  I can just see Namor taking advantage of the fact that Aquaman isn't around to make the moves on Mera.  It seems like they go to the same tailor - perhaps there's some history there that we don't know about...

Oh no... Arthur's not gonna like this. First Sue Storm, then Emma Frost, now Mera! Namor, there's something called single women!

That's funny. Before setting this cover, I'd never noticed that Aquasman was King Arthur. Has the Atlantis-Camelot link ever been taken up on this blog, or for that matter in actual comics?

Sorry, that should have been "... seeing this cover"

My money is on Mera actually being Llyra, in disguise, trying to start a war between the two Atlantises.*

*Come to think of it, there are technically three. Tritonis and Poseidonis from the DCU; and Namor's home-sweet-home (which, I gather, is the namesake capital of the original continent).

Peter David scripted Aquaman and used King Arthur and his cast to retell a version of the Camelot stories of the human Arthur.

Is this when we learn that Namor's middle name is 'Lancelot'?

Huh. I don't know why I honestly never thought of this pairing before, but I definitely like it. I could see it.

Oops!
Somehow forgot to put my name on my previous comment: I was "Above Anonymous".

Then, I congratulate you on your clever play on marine biological terms. Although, the proper spelling is "lancelet." As in, "a species of small jawless fish representing the most primitive marine chordates on Earth."

Interesting. That's a different interpretation of the pun from mine. I thought the other anonymous (aka simreeve) meant lance-a-lot with reference to Namor pointing his trident at Mera.

Otto Sell said...

I thought he meant "Lancelot" as in the knight who slept with King Arthur's wife...

Simreeve said...

A good pun can be read in several ways...
