Mera looks like she got her wardrobe ideas from Street Fighter Alpha.

As fast as he needs to be. Based on the general showings of speedsters or people with super speed in general, I take them as mentally capping their speed as the need arises, which explains why Superman is fast enough to catch bullets one second but is slow enough to be tagged by someone like Mammoth, who has no real speed. Toss him in a fight with say, Wonder Woman or another Kryptonian and he'll regulate his body accordingly.
This theory of mine was somewhat confirmed during the Grounded storyline where Superman had to consciously speed up his level of perception because Barry-Flash was moving and talking faster than he could register prior to the mental adjustments.
I don't read Cap but if it isn't Steve carrying the shield the only person who deserves to in my mind is Bucky. Steve looked up to Bucky when he was just a scrawny kid, and then Bucky looked up to Steve as Cap. They've both learned from and supported each other, and really it's the only one that does Steve's legacy justice. I know Bucky has been Cap before, but that should even further solidify why he should carry the mantle.
Actually, Steve never looked up to Bucky in the mainstream, 616 universe. Bucky was the one who always looked up to Cap. Only in the ultimate universe and the movie universe was Bucky the "big brother" of the two.
We all know it's the Falcon. Fine, make him the new Captain for the time being. What I don't get is why the hell did Steve age? For all intents, he was in stasis and was preserved by the SSS. The lack of it shouldn't have logically made him age into a 90 year old.
Prior to the reboot, he was active for like 15-20 years, so it's easy to believe that anything he didn't know right at the beginning of his career, he learned over the course of it. Realistically, several fighting styles seem to overlap in terms of form and technique, so it's not that much of a stretch to think that Batman became skilled in one and glanced at some other related/similar arts and gleaned some moves to incorporate into his style. In regards to his smarts, that could be attributed to being wealthy and fortunate enough to afford the best schooling, so when he wasn't physically training as a teenager, he was book learning.
Not to mention, Bruce learned via unorthodox means. Most people, when they train and learn martial arts, they have downtime. They do things to relax and have families that they go to spend time with and friends they associate with; Bruce went off the grid and pretty much trained non-stop for years with people who didn't necessarily train the way most masters would train a pupil. Not unreasonable to believe that under such extreme training regimen, someone could master a fighting style relatively quickly.
But he also lives in a universe with beings who defy physics, and that includes normal humans who're aren't nearly as smart and aren't as well versed in as many fighting styles as Batman. The rules of his universe shows that someone who spends the right amount of time and studies under the right people can become polygots, polymaths, and become one of the best melee fighters on the planet.
