Animated LSH news 49: Kari Wahlgren profile

As I figured yesterday, Comics Continuum today begins its profiles of the Legion animated show's voice actors. Today: Kari Wahlgren, voice of Saturn Girl and Triplicate Girl.

Highlights (read the article for more):

Saturn Girl is one seven regular Legion members on the series along with Superman, Lightning Lad, Timber Wolf, Brainiac-5, Bouncing Boy and Phantom Girl.

"Obviously," Wahlgren said with a laugh, "she's the mature one. After all, she's the girl.

"She's definitely much more of a calm, mature character. They wanted her to be one of the older ones on the team. She's very nurturing and focused and very much a leader in the group."

There might be a slight romantic spark with Lightning Lad in the series, but the ultra-disciplined Saturn Girl, always cautious about letting her guard down, will probably be too serious to notice.

"Sometimes she could stand to have a little bit more of a sense of humor," Wahlgren said. "But she always comes from a good place."

Saturn Girl might be physically one of the most vulnerable Legionnaires, but she is also one of the most powerful. Wahlgren described Saturn Girl's powers on the show as "a lot of psychic abilities."

"She can project different psychic images to distract enemies in battle," Wahlgren said.

It sounds like they've added Princess Projectra's abilities to Saturn Girl here.

I'm not too sure. In the Reboot comics Imra could create mental illusions. Not as powerful as Projectra's, but convincing enough.

Since the look and feel of the series seems to be vaguely based on the Reboot era, that may be where they got it.
