Quote1.png All I see, I own. And I am unsatisfied with the state of things. Quote2.png[src]

Opal Luna Saturnyne is the manipulative, deceitful Omniversal Majestrix of the Dimensional Development Court, responsible for maintaining the integrity of the Omniverse, an infinity of parallel universes.[1]

Originally subordinate to Roma, the Omniversal Guardian, Saturnyne eventually supplanted Roma and took that position for herself, though she continues to style herself as Majestrix.

Saturnyne of Earth-9 should not be confused with her counterparts from alternate realities, such as banker Courtney Ross of Earth-616, Captain Avalon's lost love,[3] or the nefarious Sat-Yr-9 of Earth-794.[4] Some of her other counterparts include Sa'tneen, Satyr-nun, Anjulie, and the Queen Mother.[5][6]

History

Early Life

Saturnyne originally hailed from Earth-9, one in a myriad of alternative universes. She hailed from her world's version of Britain, but beyond that not much is revealed about her early life.[7] When swearing, she referenced the Zoroastrian deity Mithras, implying this religion was dominant on her world.[8]

Omniversal Majestrix

Opal Luna Saturnyne (Earth-9) from All-New Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe A to Z Vol 1 9 0001.jpg

As a highly intelligent and ambitious woman she ended up on Otherworld as the Omniversal Majestrix, a function where she was part of the Dimensional Development Court, oversaw the Captain Britain Corps and was charged with the safekeeping of the entire Omniverse. She only had to report to Merlyn, the Omniversal Guardian. In order to preserve the Omniverse, Saturnyne had no moral problems with sacrificing anybody, even an entire universe. Whenever she decided to take a more personal interest in a matter, she could call upon the Avant Guard, her personal elite. The Avant Guard appeared to be normal men, dressed in business suits and each carrying an umbrella, but these umbrellas were in fact highly advanced weapons, capable of various abilities such as inter-dimensional travel, destructive blasts and rays capable of devolving opponents. She was assisted by Dimples, an overweight man who loved Saturnyne deeply. Saturnyne herself cared little for Dimples and saw him only as a useful servant.[9]

Captain Britain

Saturnyne first came into contact with Captain Britain, a warrior from Earth-616, when they met on Earth-238, also known as the Crooked World. This Earth was deemed to be a threat to the Omniverse and Saturnyne convinced Captain Britain to help evolve the backwards planet, hoping to eliminate its threat. They were opposed by the Status Crew, a group charged with maintaining the status quo. Saturnyne and Captain Britain cooperated and managed to evolve the world, but were surprised to see a bigger threat take its place: that reality's Mad Jim Jaspers used his powers to create the Jaspers' Warp, causing widespread insanity and the collapse of reality. Captain Britain and Saturnyne wanted to stop him, but were prevented by the Fury, a killer machine. Saturnyne fled with her Avant Guard, leaving a heartbroken Dimples and Captain Britain behind. Dimples was killed by the Fury seconds later.[10]

Jaspers Warp

The Dimensional Development Court was not pleased with what they perceived as Saturnyne's failure. She was arrested and replaced by a man called Mandragon, who destroyed the Earth-238 universe to prevent the Jaspers Warp from spreading. Merlyn had saved Captain Britain though and the Fury managed to survive and escape under his own power. Captain Britain and the inter-dimensional mercenaries known as the Special Executive helped Saturnyne escape from the Court to Earth-616. On Earth-616, Mad Jim Jaspers, an even more powerful version than the one on Earth-238, came into power and threatened the world. Meanwhile the Fury also made its way to Earth-616 and came to battle with Jaspers. During the conflict, Merlyn seemingly died (though later he would reveal that he had just faked his death). In the end the Fury killed Jaspers and was killed shortly afterwards by Captain Britain and Captain UK from Earth-238 with help from Saturnyne and the Special Executive. Saturnyne managed to obtain cell samples of Jaspers though and threatened to unleash a clone on Mandragon's world if he didn't return her former position to her. Merlyn's daughter Roma succeeded her father.[11][12]

Excalibur

Despite having cooperated with Captain Britain at various times, her duty would come first and she came into conflict with Captain Britain when she sent the bounty-hunters known as the Technet after Rachel Summers. The Technet failed to capture her and Phoenix joined Captain Britain, Shadowcat, Meggan, and Nightcrawler to form Excalibur.[13] Later events would reveal that Saturnyne was acting under Roma's orders at this time and that the Technet was meant to fail, resulting in the formation of Excalibur.[14] She along with the rest of the Corps attended Captain Britain's wedding to Meggan.[15]

Abraxas

Saturnyne was also summoned by Roma when the being Abraxas tried to destroy all creation.[16] While Roma was killed, Saturnyne used some sort of power to protect Franklin and Valeria Richards.[17]

Mastermind

Saturnyne remained Roma's servant and Omniversal Majestrix for several years until the villain Mastermind decimated the Captain Britain Corps and imprisoned Roma. Captain Britain managed to defeat Mastermind and Roma named Captain Britain, now more powerful than ever before, the new ruler of Otherworld. Saturnyne returned as Omniversal Majestrix, but had a bitter relationship with Brian, whom she deemed unworthy of his new position.[18]

Return of Mad Jim Jaspers

Mad Jim Jaspers returned and threatened the Citadel and the Corps. She used a powerful energy weapon to disintegrate him but he was able to pull his molecules back together. He was about to kill her but the Exiles arrived allowing her enough time to escape.[19]

She was able capture a Map Maker and tried to use it to find out the cause of the incursions. However her plan fell apart when the Map Maker summoned an army of robots which wiped out Saturnyne, Roma and the Corps. Her last act is to place the secrets of the Citadel into Captain Britain's Brain so he could warn the Illuminati of Earth-616.[23]

While overseeing a battle between the mutant forces of Krakoa and Arakko, Saturnyne issued a prophecy through the Krakoan mutant Polaris, which commenced a contest between select champions from Krakoa and Arakko over control of Otherworld. At the beginning, Saturnyne gave each champion a card, depicting their future in the contest. At dinner early on, Wolverine attempted to murder Saturnyne. Before he could do so, Saturnyne showed him a terrible future where this led to the Arakii forces taking over Earth. Mid-contest, Saturnyne captured Shogo, who at the time was in dragon form. As the contest went on, Saturnyne worked on a mysterious work of art. Towards the end, as the forces of Krakoa and the spaceknights fought the Arakki forces and the demons of Amenth. As Saturnyne finished the mural she was creating, she was surprised to find that it depicted the recently presumed-to-be-deceased Captain Britain Betsy Braddock. With her discovery, the Captain Britain Corps was summoned to fight with the Krakoans. Saturnyne took off on Shogo, devastating the battlefield before declaring Krakoa the winner of the contest. Afterward, Saturnyne was declared Omniversal Majestrix.
