"Aquaman" - Amber Heard Has "Allure"

Take a look at actress Amber Heard, aka 'Mera' in the comic book movie "Aquaman", posing for "Allure" magazine:

"It's interesting," said Heard about her 'Mera' look.

"It’s like, half a suit of armor and half scales.

The comic book character Mera debuted in DC's "Aquaman" #11 (September 1963), created by writer Jack Miller and illustrator Nick Cardy...

...introduced as the former 'Queen of Dimension Aqua', 'Queen of Atlantis' and wife of 'Arthur Curry' aka 'Aquaman'.

In her first appearance, Mera is fleeing the criminal 'Leron', who seized control of her kingdom, when she arrives on the surface and meets human 'Arthur Currey' aka 'Aquaman' who vows to help her. 

But Leron captures them, imprisoning Aquaman and Mera in 'Dimension Aqua'.

Aided by the water spirit known as 'Quisp', Aquaman manages to free Mera and defeat Leron. 

Mera abdicates the throne of 'Xebel' to 'Queen V'lana', returning to Atlantis to marry Aquaman.

'Aquaman' was created by writer Paul Norris and illustrator Mort Weisinger, debuting in "More Fun Comics" #73 (November 1941)...

...initially as a backup feature in DC's anthology titles, then starred in several volumes of a solo title.
