Who's Who: Immune

by Russell & Siskoid

Real Name: Dr. Murleen Dreeu
Super-Power(s): Immunity to disease
Planet of Origin: Xorma
Relationship to Legion: Villain

Legion Log
Immune was the sole survivor of an experimental chemical weapon that his planet Xorma's military had intended to use on their neighbors. While the Xorman military tested it, it turned out to be vastly stronger and more lethal than they had realized it would be; the gas ended up killing everyone on Xorma except for Immune. For some reason his physiology allowed him to survive. After getting nursed back to health for one year he realized that he was immune to all diseases. He began to call himself Immune. 

Legion enemy Dr. Regulus heard of Immune and took advantage of the man, now hopelessly insane and seeking vengeance on RJ Brande, who had sold Xorma military weapons in the past. Dr. Regulus gave Immune a teleportation device so that he could go after Brande, who was the Legion's benefactor. Dr. Regulus simultaneously let loose a viral "shrinking disease." He hoped to commit various crimes while the Legion was distracted. 

Eventually Brainiac 5 used Immune's confidence in his own physiology to outsmart him and capture him. The Legion then used Immune's abilities to cure the people suffering from Dr. Regulus' shrinking disease. 

Because Immune has appeared in only one story in the original Legion continuity, and since pictures are worth a thousand words, we here at the Legion of Super-Bloggers decided to share 99% of Immune's appearances with you today. Enjoy!

Immune never reappears, in any continuity.

After Infinite Crisis, Immune's original history has presumably been more or less restored.

Only Immune story:

Superboy/Legion of Super-Heroes #232

Immune re-appears inside Legion HQ looking for RJ Brande 
and promptly decks Shadow Lass...


The Legion chases after Immune and finds him on Brande's asteroid....


....and th-th-th-that's all, folks~! One and done!!
