Imra Ardeen is a Saturnian psychic with vast telekinetic from the 30th century. She is a founding member and co-leader of the Legion, the wife of Mon-El and a powerful ally to Supergirl. Imra is known as 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. She and Brainiac 5, another member of the Legion, devised a plan to travel back in time and stop Pestilance in the 21st Century before she could evolve into the Blight, but kept it from Mon-El because they assumed he wouldn't want to come back to their time period. 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 was too weak to do it himself. 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 finally told a confused Kara that Imra was his wife.

At the D.E.O. Imra explains how the Legion existed because Mon-El told stories of Kara and how she fought for people so they both decided to found the Legion; and reveals that they look 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. After Supergirl's fight with Reign, Imra is seen checking on her and assures Mon-El that she'll be fine.

Battle against the Worldkillers

Returning to the 31st century

After the death of Pestilence, Imra returns to the 31st century in order to find out if her sister is alive in the new timeline, since the Blight no longer exists. She suggests that Mon-El stay in the 21st century in order to help Supergirl and figure out his feelings.

Final stand against Reign

Imra and Brainy return for the climactic battle with Reign and the dark priestesses. Imra uses her powers to place a forcefield around the chasm. However, the struggling Supergirl and Reign slam into their ship, causing it to spin out of control and crash, presumably killing Imra and Brainy. Supergirl then uses Mon-El's Legion ring to go back in time.

Imra's time away from Mon-El makes her realize that their marriage was never what it should have been, and she apologized for not telling him about the mission. When she leaves, her and Mon-El part as friends.

Personality
