Emerald Empress aka Sarya was born and raised on Venegar. As a young women, she became obsessed with attaining power, influence, wealth, and immortality. Through a stroke of luck, Sarya stumbled into a cave that held the Emerald Eye of Ekron. The Eye was attracted by her strong emotions and the two formed a bond with each other. As Emerald Empress, she conquered her planet and several in its solar system. After installing a dictatorship, she was quickly met with rebellion. Empress fled Venegar and spent years as a pirate. Empress was soon resigned to her original goals, and formed the Fatal Five to conquer the United Planets.

Man of TomorrowEdit

They were defeated by the Legion of Superheroes and sent to Takron-Galtos to serve their sentences. The Fatal Five soon escaped and arrived on Earth to exact revenge. They were defeated when the Legion recruited Superman.


The Fatal Five later resurfaced in a plot to assassinate President Wazzo but one participant of the 343rd Intergalactic Games, Jo Nah, of Rimbor defeated Emerald Empress.


With the threat of the Sun-Eater on the rise, the Legion convinced the imprisoned Emerald Empress to agree to a temporary alliance. Empress had every intention of double crossing them, something that the Legion took into account. Shrinking Violet snuck into the Emerald Eye of Ekron and sabotaged it. She and the rest of the group were returned to Takron-Galtos.

The Man from the Edge of TomorrowEdit

They were later freed by Imperiex and wrecked havoc on the Legion of Superheroes at their Earth headquarters. In the battle, Matter-Eater Lad bit a chunk off of the Eye and left Empress powerless. She was imprisoned to serve her sentence.


  • Emerald Eye of Ekron: It is an ancient artifact controlled by the Empress. The eye's supernatural powers allow it to fly and give Empress the ability to survive in space, enhanced physical abilities, and flight. At her command, the eye can project powerful energy blasts, cast illusions, generate energy constructs, form bubbles to imprison or protect others and large groups, affect matter, put others under mind control, and teleport herself and others anywhere in the galaxy.
