Saturn Queen

Jump to: navigation, search

A member of the Legion of Super-Villains, an organization of super-criminals from the twenty-first century A.D. An attractive redhead from the planet Saturn, Saturn Queen wears a black and purplish-blue costume, complemented by a red belt, with an emblem symbolic of the planet Saturn — a white sphere encircled by a red ring—emblazoned on her chest.

“---I’m from the planet Saturn,” she explains in August 1961, “where there has been no crime at all for centuries. - - and where everyone can perform amazing mental feats! One day, when I traveled to Earth, I felt a sudden desire to outwit the law with my powers of super-hypnotism!. - .And so I joined the Legion of Super-Villains...!”

In August 1961, the Legion of Super-Villains forms an alliance with Lex Luthor in an elaborate scheme to annihilate Superman (S No. 147/3: “The Legion of Super-Villains!”).

In March 1962, while in the grip of a nightmare induced by exposure to Red Kryptonite , Superman dreams that Saturn Queen and other villains lure him into a trap, put him on “trial” for his alleged “crimes” against them, and sentence him to battle Supergirl to the death in a gigantic arena or else stand by helplessly while they blow up the Earth. These events, however, are all only part of a nightmare, and no actual confrontation with Saturn Queen and her cohorts ever takes place (Act No. 286: “The Jury of Super-Enemies!”).

In November 1962, when Superman puts the finishing touches on the new Hall of Enemies in his Fortress of Solitude, Saturn Queen — here described as one of “the most dangerous evil-doers in the universe” — is among the villains and villainesses represented there by colorful wax busts (Act No. 294: “The Kryptonite Killer!”).
