- I had not thought to have the opportunity to repay the Legionnaires for their past 'kindnesses so soon... But it is a fitting celebration to inaugurate my new reign as Emerald Empress-- of the galaxy.
- -- Emerald Empress src
Sarya of the planet Venegar (referred to simply as "the Empress") was recruited by Superboy and the Legion to combat the menace of the Sun-Eater. Once the Sun-Eater was defeated, she joined the Fatal Five with Tharok, Validus, Mano and the Persuader.
The Emerald Empress died when Legionnaire Sensor Girl used her powers of illusion to mask Sarya's presence from the Eye. As the Empress' body quickly withered and decomposed, she expressed relief to be free from the Eye's control, indicating both that their symbiotic relationship was unwilling and that the Empress was far older than she appeared.
- Emerald Eye of Ekron: The Empress had no innate super-powers; rather, she employed a powerful mystical item called the Emerald Eye of Ekron, an approximately 2' diameter sphere that obeyed her mental commands. The Eye could fly and emit blasts of energy, and allowed the Empress to fly as well as survive in space. The Eye's residual energy also gave her, on at least one occasion, super-strength. It caused her to grow to gigantic stature during one battle. The Eye could also reform itself if shattered.
- Energy Projection: The Emerald Eye can fire green energy which causes enough pain to knock it's opponents unconscious. It can also emit kryptonite radiation to cripple Kryptonians.
