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 â€” a white sphere encircled by a red ringâ€”emblazoned on her chest.
â€œ---Iâ€™m from the planet Saturn,â€ she explains in August 1961, â€œwhere 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...!â€
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 â€œtrialâ€ for his alleged â€œcrimesâ€ 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: â€œThe Jury of Super-Enemies!â€).
In November 1962, when Superman puts the finishing touches on the new Hall of Enemies in his Fortress of Solitude, Saturn Queen â€” here described as one of â€œthe most dangerous evil-doers in the universeâ€ â€” is among the villains and villainesses represented there by colorful wax busts (Act No. 294: â€œThe Kryptonite Killer!â€).
