Powers and Abilities

Super Powers

  • Telekinesis: The only natural power that she possessed. She originally auditioned for membership of the Legion of Super-Heroes, demonstrating this ability, but she was rejected. This angered her, leading toward her frustration and eventually her becoming a supervillain.

All of her other powers were given to her by the Emerald Eye. (see below)





  • Emerald Eye: provided the Emerald Empress a variety of of powers, similar to the effects of the Green Lantern Power Ring. The eye allowed her to fly and survive unharmed in the cold vacuum of space. At her command, it can attack her enemies with energy blasts powerful enough to take down even the likes of Superboy. It also protects her from attack by generating a nearly impenetrable force field around her. The Empress can also wield the Eye's power to suit more specific needs depending on her situation: it has given her superhuman strength on more than one occasion, and in another instance she was able to use its power to grow to gigantic size. In a recent appearance, the Eye gave the Empress the power to cast illusions and alter reality, rebuilding the planet of Orando into a medieval-like society as she envisioned it.


  • Telepathy: The eye can sometimes be tricked into shutting down if its ability to 'see' is blocked, e.g; when Sensor Girl masked the presence of the Empress from the Eye, though this is difficult to accomplish since the Eye can see through nearly every spectrum and wavelength.
  • Kryptonite: For some reason the Emerald Eye of Ekron has an adverse reaction to green Kryptonite; when exposed to the material it can become dazed or immobilized. If the Eye is successfully attacked, the Empress will often 'feel' the effects of the attack as well, due to their symbiotic relationship.


  • Cera Kesh first appeared in Legionaires # 2 (May 1993).[2]


  1. This is conjecture, her species wasn't revealed to this editor's knowledge, but she looked human when she wasn't in her Emerald Empress form.
