The Shi'ar Imperial Guard are a group of guards who are loyal to whoever is ruler of the Shi'ar Empire.

History[]

The Imperial Guard were sent by Emperor D'Ken Neramani to locate his sister Lilandra Neramani and the M'Kraan Crystal. This search brought them to Earth where they first met the X-Men. After D'Ken received the crystal and used its power towards his own evil ends, the Imperial Guard turned on him, helping the X-Men and Starjammers to fight against him. Later, when the Dark Phoenix caused a supernova, Empress Lilandra sent the Imperial Guard to arrest and execute Jean Grey, the host of the Phoenix. Professor X managed to persuade Lilandra to instead hold a fight to the death between the Imperial Guard and the X-Men. The Imperial Guard were winning until Jean managed to kill herself after the Phoenix re-emerged within her.

One of the Imperial Guard members, Oracle, was kidnapped by Apocalypse for his Lazarus Chamber but she was freed by the combined efforts of the X-Men, Bishop and Cable.
