Voice Compare » Aquaman » Mera
Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Mera with sound clips and images.
Mera is the wife of Aquaman and the Queen of Atlanitis and she made her Comic Book debut in Aquaman #11 in September of 1963. Mera was actually originally from a mysterious place known as "Dimension Aqua" where she was the Queen there until before she became the Queen of Atlantis with Aquaman. Mera has been known to have plenty of powers such as enhanced strength, Aqua-kinesis, can create structures with hard water and more. Mera and Aquaman are generally known to have a good strong loving relationship with one another and they even have a son by the name of Arthur Curry Jr.
EDITOR'S OPINIONToday on the Aquaman VC section we take a look at Aquaman's Wife... MERA! Lets begin shall we?
Diane Maddox- I actually rather liked Diane's voice for the role as it does have a fairly regal feel to it as her performance was pretty good. (Granted Mera seems a little too easy to deceive in this show but I guess I can't fault Diane for that.) Anyways Diane's work on the role is actually not too bad and is a good example of the voice work in the show.
Kristin Bauer- Kristin's voice for the role was pretty good but her performance definitely suited on how Mera is Aquaman's strong-mannered caring wife rather well. While its not one of the most memorable performances in the show it is a good example nevertheless.
Sirena Irwin- I actually rather liked Sirena's voice for the role as it seems to be quite a natural fit for a young queen such as Mera rather well. Sirena's performance also definitely suited on how Mera was comically depicted as the somewhat controlling but genuinely caring wife/mother figure here in the Curry family. (That and I did like on how her Mera voice does sound considerably different enough from her Lois Lane voice in that show.) Anyways to make a long story short Sirena's overall work as Mera is another pretty good example of the voice work in that show.
Kath Soucie- While one can certainly see this as an example of type-casting (Kath has been the VA of Mothers and Motherly figures ever since the 90's) but this is a fairly good example of why she is known for doing them well. While Kath's voice and performance for the role seems to focus more on how "Motherly" Mera but that is not necessarily a problem as Kath's performance for the role is pretty good. So in other words its a pretty good example of Kath's work and a good example of the voice work in the show.
Overall I admit this is another case where I am not sure who I will be going with as all of these ladies did pretty well with the role here in their own way.
