Imra Ardeen is the ex-wife of Mon-El and a member of The Legion. She calls herself Saturn Girl.

Biography

Imra Ardeen was born in the 31st century, on Saturn's moon Titan. At some point, she met and married Mon-El,[1] joining the Legion. While on a mission, she and Brainiac 5, another member of the Legion, knew about the risk but kept it from Mon-El and they were transported through a wormhole, 12,000 years into the past. They put themselves into cryo-sleep, but were awoken in 2017 when a torpedo hit their ship.[2]

Awaking in the 21st century

Due to the torpedo damaging their ship, Imra's chamber lost power. Frantic, an awake Mon-El attempted to break the glass, but it was too thick for him. Supergirl instead broke the glass and freed Imra, who flooded out and on to the ground. Mon-El found that she was still breathing, and the group traveled back to the D.E.O. to make sure Imra was okay. Once there, Mon-El revealed her identity. Later that night, Imra woke up and found Mon-El talking to Kara Danvers. Mon-El, elated that she was okay, kissed Imra in front of Kara and proclaimed that he was afraid that she was dead. Imra assured him of her survival, and he then introduced her to Kara, and told a confused and heartbroken Kara that Imra was his wife. Imra was surprised but happy to finally meet the Girl of Steel.[1]

At the D.E.O. Imra explains how the Legion existed because Mon-El told stories of Kara and how she fought for people and reveals that she looks up to Kara for that reason. Due to being stuck in the 21st century, Imra and Mon-El hang out in National City. While searching for a mysterious Kryptonian, Imra offers to help and talks with Kara knowing that she used to date Mon-El and that it was hard for her to see him with someone else. After Supergirl's fight with Reign, Imra is seen checking on her and assures Mon-El that she'll be fine.

Returning to the 31st century

Personality

Not much is known about her personality, however, it is seen that Imra holds Supergirl in high regard, thanks to the inspirational tales told by her husband, Mon-El. She loves spending time with Mon-El be it outside the D.E.O. or during training. She also has a degree of emotional intelligence, being able to sense that Kara felt uncomfortable and hurt around her and Mon-El. She is shown to be kind and have good morals, convincing Mon-El to fight against Reign. She seems to be really friendly with the Legion and agents of the D.E.O..
