Membership

1970s recruits

*Starbolt ["Uncanny X-Men" #107] - formerly known as Bolt; He is covered with a flame-like energy at all times. He can project this energy from his hands. Starbolt can fly in space without requiring protection. He is an analogue of Sun Boy. He is one of the guardmen who survived the battle with Vulcan.
*Scintilla ["Uncanny X-Men" #107] - formerly known as Midget ["X-Men #107] ; the "Marvel Index to the X-Men" refers to her as Midget (and this is officially confirmed in "The Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe"), but actually the character was never named on-panel before "Avengers West Coast" #81; there she is called Scintilla. In any case, she is an analogue to Shrinking Violet. She is one of the guardsmen who survived the battle with Vulcan.
*Flashfire (Grannz) ["Uncanny X-Men" #107] - formerly known as Tempest; he can generate bolts of lightning. He is the counterpart of Lightning Lad. His name was changed from Tempest to Flashfire to avoid confusion with DC Comics' Tempest (formerly Aqualad). He was wounded battling Vulcan.
*Pulsar ["Uncanny X-Men" #107] - formerly known as Impulse; he is made of pure energy, and his form is only contained by his costume. He can release blasts of energy from his visor. He is an analogue of Wildfire. His name was changed from Impulse to Pulsar to avoid confusion with the Legionnaire named Impulse (Kent Shakespeare), who had been introduced since Impulse/Pulsar had debuted. He seemed to be killed by Vulcan, but since Impulse is made of pure energy, it's doubtful he really died.
*Fang ["Uncanny X-Men" #107] - He was transformed into a Brood and killed ["Uncanny X-Men" #162] by Wolverine who then took his costume and wore it. Fang is a feral, agile warrior with uncanny senses and sharp canine teeth. He is the counterpart of Timber Wolf.
*Oracle (Sybil) ["Uncanny X-Men" #107] - possesses psychic powers, including but not limited to telepathy and precognition. She is a counterpart of Saturn Girl. She has been romantically linked with both Gladiator and Flashfire (Tempest). She was injured in the battle with Vulcan, but she survived the attack.
*Mentor ["Uncanny X-Men" #107] - He is intelligent and a skilled tactician. He may be some kind of android or cyborg. He is an analogue to Brainiac 5. He should not to be confused with Mentor the Eternal, father of Thanos. He survived the battle with Vulcan.
*Gladiator (Kallark) ["Uncanny X-Men" #107] - He is the Imperial Guard's Praetor (leader); a member of the Strontian race, is the Imperial Guard's leader. Because of this role, he was more than once used as an advisor by Lilandra. He is unflappably loyal to the ruler of the Shi'ar Empire, whoever that may be at the time. He has been romantically involved with Oracle (Lady Sibyl). He is an analogue of Superman and Superboy, and possesses a number of relevant powers (strength, endurance, flight, enhanced senses, and the ability to travel through space unaided), with one caveat: his powers are dependent on his self-image. If he believes that he can lose a fight, his powers become weaker, and he has been physically humbled by purely psychic assaults. He has a cousin named Xenith, who is a Supergirl analogue; she is not affiliated with the Imperial Guard and should not be confused with the Imperial Guardsman named Zenith. He personally defeated Vulcan in combat and ripped out Vulcan's eye.
*Neutron ["Uncanny X-Men" #107] - formerly known Quasar; he is a member of the Stygian race, and is superhumanly strong and durable. He is an analogue of Star Boy or possibly Blok. His name was changed to Neutron when the character then known as Marvel Boy changed his name to Quasar and he developed a strong enmity for the hero following their encounter in ""; had been discharged and sent to Earth, which was turned into an intergalactic prison in Maximum Security. Though Hussar and Webwing were never back with the Imperial Guard, somehow Neutron and Warstar were accepted to serve in the Guard again. He was recently killed by Vulcan.
*Smasher (Vril Rokk) ["Uncanny X-Men" #107] - He is superhumanly strong and durable, and can fly under his own power. He can "download" powers via the special goggles that he wears; so far he has been seen to obtain in this manner "penta-vision", which may be a form of clairvoyance or X-ray vision, and the ability to travel into hyperspace ("4-space") without a vehicle. He has been romantically linked with Plutonia. He is an analogue of Ultra Boy. He was recently killed by Vulcan.
*Titan ["Uncanny X-Men" #107] - He can increase his size. He is an analogue of Colossal Boy. He was recently severely wounded in a combat the Imperial Guard had with Vulcan. Fortunately he survived and was shown among his colleagues ["X-Men: Emperor Vulcan"]
*Electron ["Uncanny X-Men" #107] - He is a Shi'ar with the ability to generate and control electricity. He is the counterpart of Lightning Lad or possibly Cosmic Boy. He is one of the guardsmen who survived the battle with Vulcan.
*Astra ["Uncanny X-Men" #107] - Has the ability to become intangible. She is an analogue of Phantom Girl. She is one of the guardsmen who survived the battle with Vulcan.
*Nightside ["Uncanny X-Men" #107] - formerly known as Nightshade; her powers are not unique as all members of her race have this as their natural ability; She can generate darkness. She is an analogue of Shadow Lass. Her name was changed to Nightside to avoid confusion with the DC/Charlton Comics character Nightshade or with Marvel's villainous Nightshade. Like Oracle, she was injured by Vulcan, but recovered and was seen ["Uncanny X-Men" #485] battling the X-Men and the Starjammers.
*Hobgoblin ["Uncanny X-Men" #107] - formerly known as Shapeshifter and Shifter; he is a member of the Chameleoid race and like Nightshade's race, Hobgoblin's powers are the natural ability of his race. The exact limitations of his shapeshifting ability are unknown, although he has been seen to transform into large, non-humanoid creatures. He is an analogue of Chameleon Boy. His name was changed to "Shapeshifter" to avoid confusion with the Spider-Man foe Hobgoblin. The first Hobgoblin was killed while impersonating LilandraComic book reference | Writer = Rafael Martin & Carlos Pacheco | Penciller = Jose Ladronn | inker = Ladronn | Story = The Darkest Hour | Title = Inhumans vol. 3 | Issue = 4 | Date = October 2000 | Publisher = Marvel Comics | ] ; A second Hobgoblin appeared recently only to be or believed to been killed by Vulcan.
*Magique ["Uncanny X-Men" #107] - formerly known as Magic; she can generate illusions. She may be a magician of undefined aptitude, or her illusion-casting may be her only power. She is an analogue of Projectra, and possibly of the White Witch as well. She is one of the guardsmen who survived the battle with Vulcan.

1980s recruits"'

*Manta ["Uncanny X-Men" #137] - she possesses the powers of flight, generates flashes of blinding light, and the ability to see in the dark. Her species experiences memory in a manner different from that of most other species. She has no direct counterpart. She was one of the survivors of the battle with Vulcan.
*Warstar (B'nee and C'cil) ["Uncanny X-Men" #137] - Warstar is actually two aliens, a small one named B'nee who can generate electricity and a large one named C’cil who is immensely strong and durable. B'nee rides on C'cil's back. Both appear to have metallic hides or to be wearing body armor. Their counterpart would seem to be Duo Damsel, or possibly Ferro Lad, although they are named for the puppets Beany and Cecil. They had been discharged and sent to Earth, which was turned into an intergalactic prison in Maximum Security. Though Hussar and Webwing were never back with the Imp. Guard, somehow Warstar and Neutron were accepted to serve the Empress again. Warstar was ripped in half when the guard fought for their new emperor Vulcan against the X-Men and Starjammers, but Warstar survived and were carried away by their fellow guardsmen.
*Earthquake ["Uncanny X-Men" #137] - formerly known as Quake; he has rock-like skin and the ability to manipulate silicate matter. He survived the battle with Vulcan and now serves this new emperor of the Shi'ar empire. Possibly an analogue of Blok.
*Hussar ["Uncanny X-Men" #137] - She wields a whip that she uses to channel bio-electricity into her opponents to shock and paralyze; she had been discharged and sent to Earth, which was turned into an intergalactic prison in Maximum Security. Though her colleagues Neutron and Warstar came back to serving the Imp. Guard, Hussar and Webwing were not among the Guard ever since. Her Legion counterpart would seem to be the villain Tyr.
*"N'rill'iree"' ["Uncanny X-Men" #155] - Possesses enhanced strength, endurance, and resistance to physical injury. N'rill'iree was not seen among the Imperial Guard during the battle against Vulcan, so it's doubtful he still serves with the Guard.
*Webwing ["Uncanny X-Men" #157] - He possesses tentacles which exude a powerful narcotic sedative. He had been discharged and sent to Earth, which was turned into an intergalactic prison in Maximum Security. Though their colleagues Neutron and Warstar came back to serving the Imp. Guard, Webwing and Hussar were not among the Guard ever since.
*Blackthorn ["Uncanny X-Men" #157] - He is capable of communicating with plant life and control their actions. He is a possible analogue of Chlorophyll Kid. Blackthorn was not seen among the Imperial Guard during the battle against Vulcan, so it's doubtful he still serves with the Guard these days.
*Zenith (Longknife) ["X-Men Spotlight on... Starjammers" #2] - He can siphon the potential energy of living beings and convert it into blasts of concussive energy and is the alleged brother of Raza Longknife of the Starjammers. The blood feud between the two brothers have been caused by Zenith's loyalty to the Shi'ar Empire. Zenith was killed in a battle against the Starjammers and Binary (Carol Danvers). Later, Raza performed the bloody rites for his dead brother ["Spotlight on... the Starjammers" #2] .
*Black Light ["X-Men Spotlight on... Starjammers" #2] - It has yet to be confirmed whether Deathbird is his mother. He can project bolts of Darkforce energy from his eyes and is capable of flight. He has barely been seen among the Imperial Guard and probably quit right after his mother was no longer the Shi'ar Majestrix. Possibly an analogue for Shadow Lass or her brother, Shadow Kid.
*White Noise ["X-Men Spotlight on... Starjammers" #2] - It has yet to be confirmed whether Deathbird is her mother. She uses high-pitched frequencies produced by her vocal cords to shatter objects, disorient her opponents, and allow herself to fly. She has barely been seen among the Imperial Guard and probably quit right after her mother was no longer the Shi'ar Majestrix. She is possibly an analogue for Tyroc.

1990s recruits

*Onslaught ["Quasar" #33] - He possesses enhanced strength, speed, agility, reflexes, endurance, dexterity, and reaction time. He is a skilled martial artist. He is not to be confused with the supervillain Onslaught. He is an analogue of Karate Kid. Onslaught was first seen with the Shi'ar Imperial Guard during the crisis that came to be known as Operation: Galactic Storm. He was among a small strike force that battled Quasar in outer space, keeping the young Avenger busy long enough so that he would not interfere with the launch of the Nega-Bomb, the weapon that ended the war by killing 90% of the Kree population. Onslaught was not seen among the Imperial Guard during the battle against Vulcan, so it's doubtful he still serves with the Guard these days.
*Solar Wind ["Quasar" #33] - He absorbs cosmic energy and projects it through the chest plate on his armor. (It is possible that his Legion counterpart is Rond Vidar, who was revealed to be a member of the Green Lantern Corps) or possibly Wildfire. Solar Wind and her fellow Guardsmen Voyager and Moondancer quit the Imperial Guard after they wished to help Quasar battle the Stranger. After the Guards' leader, Gladiator, ordered the trio not to become involved, they resigned from active duty.
*Moondancer (Myla) ["Quasar" #33] - She possesses vast abilities related to extrasensory perception. She is an analogue of Dawnstar. She and her fellow Guardsmen Voyager and Solar Wind quit the Imperial Guard after they wished to help Quasar battle the Stranger. After the Guards' leader, Gladiator, ordered the trio not to become involved, they resigned from active duty.
*Voyager (Divad) ["Quasar" #33] - He possesses teleportation abilities and has similar powers to Gates, but Voyager predates him. Voyager and his fellow Guardsmen Solar Wind and Moondancer quit the Imperial Guard after they wished to help Quasar battle the Stranger. After the Guard's leader, Gladiator, ordered the trio not to become involved, they resigned from active duty.
*Glom ["Quasar" #33] - He is able to ingest and metabolize any form of energy he encounters. He is an analogue of Matter-Eater Lad. Glom was not seen among the Imperial Guard during the battle against Vulcan, so it's doubtful he still serves with the Guard these days.
*Hardball ["Thor" #446] - He possesses a rubbery body that allows him to leap great distances and rebound off any object he strikes. He is an analogue of Bouncing Boy. Hardball was not seen among the Imperial Guard during the battle against Vulcan, so it's doubtful he still serves with the Guard these days.
*FangComic book reference | Writer = Scott Lobdell & Evan Skolnick | Penciller = Steve Buccellato | inker = Don Hudson | Story = Night and Fog | Title = Excalibur | Issue = 69 | Date = September 1993 | Publisher = Marvel Comics | ] - This Fang has yet to be a confirmed member of the Guard; it seems her entire race look like her and when one is killed in battle they are succeeded by another retaining the name and the costume; she was never seen with the Guard but was hired to assassinate Cerise; her successor does not appear any time before her death; her jaw was ripped apart by CeriseComic book reference | Writer = Scott Lobdell & Richard Ashford | Penciller = Ken Lashley | inker = Agop Gemdjian & Don Hudson | Story = Crime & Punishment | Title = Excalibur | Issue = 70 | Date = October 1993 | Publisher = Marvel Comics | ] .
*Fang ["Starjammers" #4] - This is the second male Fang to be seen. He was one of the guardsmen who survived the battle with Vulcan.
*Commando (M'Nell)Comic book reference | Writer = Brian Augustyn | Penciller = Chuck Wojtkiewicz | inker = Ray Snyder | Story = Imperious Wrecks | Title = Imperial Guard | Issue = 1 | Date = January 1997 | Publisher = Marvel Comics | ] - He possesses enhanced strength, endurance, and intellect. He was once a Kree-soldier. Being himself a Kree initially made Commando somewhat of an outsider in the Shi'ar Imperial Guard, but after their defeat of the Supreme Intelligence, Commando was accepted whole-heartedly into the group. M'Nell was not seen among the Imperial Guard during the battle against Vulcan, so it's doubtful he still serves with the Guard these days.

2000s recruits

*DelphosComic book reference | Writer = Rafael Martin & Carlos Pacheco | Penciller = Jose Ladronn | inker = Ladronn | Story = Survival | Title = Inhumans vol. 3 | Issue = 3 | Date = August 2000 | Publisher = Marvel Comics | ] - She has precognitive abilities. For a time, she took Oracle's place in the Guard. She is an analogue of Dream Girl. Since Oracle is back at the Imperial Guard and Delphos was not seen among the Imperial Guard during the battle against Vulcan, we can assume she no longer serves the Imperial Guard.

uperguardians

*Forunn ["New X-Men" #117] - Her powers are unknown at this time; Smasher described her as having an "idea", so the name may have come from the word "forerunner", although this is uncertain. It has also been speculated that she might have speed-related powers; if this is so, she would be an analogue of XS; She was killed by Cassandra Nova ["New X-Men" #122] .
*Mammoth ["New X-Men" #117] - He resembles a humanoid mammoth and has no counterpart Legionnaire. He was killed by Cassandra Nova ["New X-Men" #122] .
*Stuff ["New X-Men" #123] - disguised himself as a mutant child called Kato, at the Xavier Institute; He is a shapeshifter whose natural form resembles a green, cyclopean amoeba. He is xenophobic towards non-shapeshifting species. He infiltrated the Xavier Institute as a student named "Kato", and manipulated one of Emma Frost's students, the "Stepford Cuckoos", into becoming romantically interested in him. He is possibly an analogue of Proty or Chameleon Boy. His mind was wiped by the Stepford Cuckoos, and the mind of Cassandra Nova was transferred into his body ["New X-Men" #126] .
*Squorm ["New X-Men" #123] - He has unknown powers, but may be a kind of hive entity or artificial intelligence. Squorm dwells within a suit of powered armor that carries a plasma-based firearm. Squorm was subsequently defeated by the X-Man Beast, who slashed open Squorm's space-suit. It us unknown whether Squorm survived the encounter. This character is possibly an analogue for Quislet.
*"Monstra" ["New X-Men" #123] - She is a monstrous four-armed female with superhuman strength and durability, and may have limited intelligence. She is an analogue of Monstress.
*Cosmo ["New X-Men" #123] - The character’s name was revealed by Grant Morrison in an interview. As the codename was never used in print, many readers perceived him as the already established Imperial Guard member, Neutron; however, the "Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe: Teams 2005" has listed them as two separate members. He is near-identical to Neutron, although the black and white star field design on his costume are reversed. Like Neutron, he is a Star Boy analogue. He too was slaughtered by Vulcan.
*Arc ["New X-Men" #123] - He possesses the ability to generate electricity, and may be physically composed of electricity. Like Tempest/Flashfire, he is an analogue of Lightning Lad, and it has been speculated that the two may be the same character. Arc was not seen among the Guardsmen during the battle against Vulcan, so it's doubtful he still serves with the Imperial Guard these days.
*G-Type ["New X-Men" #124] - He is a being made of solar plasma. His powers are unrevealed, but probably involve the generation or manipulation of energy. His brain is vulnerable to magnetic interference. He is an analogue of Wildfire and perhaps Sun Boy. He was dissolved and possibly destroyed by Xorn ["New X-Men" #125] .
*Neosaurus ["New X-Men" #124] - He is a reptilian creature from a tropical environment. He presumably possesses mental powers, and shares his consciousness between several bodies, one of which was killed by Wolverine. Neosaurus was not seen among the Guardsmen during the battle against Vulcan, so it's doubtful he still serves with the Imperial Guard these days.
*Plutonia ["New X-Men" #124] - She can become intangible, and was involved in a relationship with deceased member Smasher. She is an analogue for Phantom Girl. She is one of the guardmen who survived the battle with Vulcan.
*Blimp ["New X-Men" #124] - He can inflate his body to become lighter than air. He is an analogue of Bouncing Boy. Blimp was not seen among the Imperial Guard during the battle against Vulcan, so it's doubtful he still serves with the Guard.
*Schism ["New X-Men" #124] - She possesses the ability to split her body into two bodies. As one body, half of her body is white and the other half black; when split, each body is one color. She is an analogue of Duo Damsel. Her name was revealed by Grant Morrison in an interview and was confirmed in the "Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe: Teams 2005". Schism was not seen among the Imperial Guard during the battle against Vulcan, so it's doubtful she still serves with the Guard.
*Fader ["New X-Men" #124] - He can become invisible, and apparently automatically becomes visible when unconscious. He claimed to be "hiding in the ultraviolet". He carried a light-based firearm. He is an analogue of Invisible Kid. Fader was not among the Imperial Guard during the battle against Vulcan, so it's doubtful he still serves with the team.

hi'ar Death Commandos

*Black Cloak ["Uncanny X-Men" #467] - Murdered Fred Harriman, and Elaine Grey in a surprise attack meant for Rachel Summers. Black Cloak is the leader of the Shi'ar Death Commandos. Charlotte Jones appears to have fallen into and is trapped inside the dimension that he hosts.
