Hussar is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. She is depicted as a member of the Shi'ar Imperial Guard.

Fictional character biography[edit]

Hussar is a warrior serving in the Royal Elite of the Shi'ar Imperial Guard. She wields a whip that she uses to channel bioelectricity into her opponents to shock and paralyze.

Hussar joined in the Imperial Guard's trial by combat with the X-Men to decide the fate of the Phoenix.[1]

She became a traitor and part of a renegade Imperial Guard faction which served Lord Samedar, Deathbird, and the Brood in their conspiracy to overthrow Shi'ar Princess-Majestrix Lilandra. The renegades battled the X-Men and were defeated.[2]

Alongside the Avengers and the Imperial Guard, Hussar battled the Kree Starforce on Chandilar during the Kree/Shi'ar war. In the battle, Hussar teamed with the Living Lightning to defeat Supremor.[3] Alongside the Imperial Guard, she then battled the Avengers on Chandilar and was this time defeated by the Living Lightning.[4]

She had been discharged and sent to Earth, which was turned into an intergalactic prison in Maximum Security crossover in 2000.[volume & issue needed]

Hussar has been seen among the Imperial Guardsmen, who attacked the Kree homeworld.[5] During the assault, Hussar and Electron fought Ronan the Accuser, who was ultimately defeated by their teammate, Titan.[volume & issue needed]

Powers and abilities[edit]

Hussar wields a metal "neuro whip" that can induce pain through a victim's nervous system.

Hussar is an excellent hand-to-hand combatant, and a mistress of fighting using a whip, and was trained in armed and unarmed combat by the Shi'ar Imperial Guard.

Imperial Guardsmen wear small anti-gravity devices permitting them to fly, designed by Shi'ar scientists and technicians.
