    Queen Marlena Russian?

    I was just rereading the Wiki Grayskull page for Queen Marlena and it mentions that she was Russian born and had the name Marlena Annatrova before her family moved to the States and changing her name. Is there a reliable source for this? I've never heard of her being Russian before.

    This sounds to me like something they may have put in a Russian dub. As far as I’m aware, in English media, she’s just Marlena Glenn.

    Thanks, Cobrala. That makes sense.

    Irrelevant. Her name is Marlena Glenn and there's not a single material out there portraying her as a Russian.

    She was a NASA astronaut. With Glenn for a last name, she is apparently supposed to be descended from John Glenn.

    If they ever wanted to retcon her origin, she could be a former member of StarCom instead of Nasa.

    Yeah, I've always thought of her as being John Glenn's granddaughter. The StarCom idea is pretty cool

    Her spaceship and suite was not exactly sporting misogynist NASA or USA badge...... at least in the cartoon . Something black and gold , kinda like from a beer label .

    This is exactly why America has so few girl Nauts . The Venusian takes your 50 billion dollar experimental spaceship and drives it into the nearest worm hole so they can marry the first alien king they come across . She could have at least sent the space ship back . Marlena is a very Naughty Naughty Naut .

    That isn't true either.

    Glenn was definitely an allusion to John Glenn, but I was never sure if she was supposed to actually be related to him or not. But you're right, never seen any official materials indicating she was other than American.

    My mistake, I was assuming a connection implied by the name.

    My point is a Soviet Union born comrade Marlena Glinka has a better chance of being tossed in a Sputnik and sent to the moon .
