Mercy Reef is a small town located in the state of Maine on the east coast of the United States of America. The town's lighthouse was manned by Thomas Curry. Atlanna briefly lived with Curry. After the birth of their child, Arthur, Atlanna had to uphold tradition and return home to Atlantis and rule by her king's side. On at least one occassion, Atlanna secretly returned to Mercy Reef to see her son. In later years, she sent her bodyguard Mera to observe Arthur. On the week of Thomas Curry's burial, Arthur went on an overnight drunk. He picked a fight over a lobster he was talking to and dispatched the men in spectacular fashion. After returning the lobster to the sea, Arthur returned to the lighthouse. The next day, Dr. Stephen Shin went to the lighthouse and tried to tell Arthur about his connection to Atlantis. A team of Atlantean soldiers codenamed Drift One were sent to Mercy Reef by Black Manta to assassinate Shin and Arthur. Shin was killed and the lighthouse was destroyed by Arthur was saved by Mera and taken underwater. The Justice League converged on Mercy Reef in search of Arthur and found him amid a battle with Trenchers in the Atlantic.
