Aquawoman is Earth 2's female counterpart to Aquaman, the alias of a former queen of Atlantis named Marella introduced in the Earth 2 ongoing series. Marella was created by Tom Taylor and Nicola Scott.

Fictional character biography[edit]

Marella was queen of Atlantis and at some point of time was captured and kept as a prisoner of the World Army, and was held in stasis in the Black Basement of the Arkham Command Center. Marella dislikes being called "Aquawoman", even though Jimmy Olsen would constantly call her that. She was freed by Batman and recruited in the war against the followers of Darkseid. [1] She assisted Batman and the other heroes in locating the Kryptonian Val-Zod before returning to Atlantis but vowed to help when called. [2]

Other versions[edit]

  • The name "Aquawoman" is occasionally attributed to the comic book character Mera by certain characters in story, although she does not use the alias and DC Comics has never referred to her as such.
  • Lorena Marquez eventually becomes Aquawoman in the Titans Tomorrow future.
  • In the gender-swapped universe Earth-11, Aquawoman is the alias of Anna Curry.
