Cera Kesh was a homely and overweight teen-aged girl who possessed a modest telekinetic ability to levitate objects with her mind. She tried out for the Legion of Super-Heroes but her application was rejected. To add insult to injury, the Legionnaire Inferno, who Cera had a crush on, poked fun at her weight.
Nursing a growing hatred for the Legion as a result, Cera stumbled across the Emerald Eye of Ekron through a twist of fate and bonded with it. Deciding to call herself the "Emerald Empress", she turned to a life of crime and joined the Fatal Five, leading to clashes with her once beloved Legion of Super-Heroes. She also used the Eye's power to transform herself from a dumpy teenager into a tall, statuesque, green-haired beauty.
