JUBILEE is Jubilation lee, previously a spunky mutant teenage "mall rat" who could release colorful explosive plasmoids. She was depowered during "M-Day" (an event when most mutant lost their abilities). Later on she used technological gauntlets that grant her superhuman strength and the power of flight, she joined the New Warriors and went by the name Wondra. JUBILEE was recently transformed into a bloodthirsty vampire struggling to control her dark urges.

JUBILEE Lee is a Marvel Comics superheroine closely associated with the X-Men. She was created by Chris Claremont & Marc Silvestri. She made her first appearance in Uncanny X-Men #244 (May, 1989).

Jubilation Lee is a Chinese American girl born to a wealthy parents in Beverly Hills, California. Her dreams to be an olympic gymnast was destroyed when her parents were murdered.JUBILEE was sent to an orphanage, but she ran away and hid in the Hollywood Mall. She discovered her mutant power while running away from mall security. Later on some of the X-Men will help her out while being chased by some mutant hunters. JUBILEE will follow them to their base, and hid there for some time. She would later be integral in helping out Wolverine when they were captured and tortured. JUBILEE becomes the unofficial sidekick of Wolverine. She would then meet Professor X, who welcomed her to the X-Men and for awhile assigned to one of its team.

JUBILEE X-Men Costume 1
When JUBILEE first started working with Wolverine, her "costume" was nothing more than a sleeveless T-shirt, a pair of shorts and her trademark yellow raincoat. This is also what she wears when she's with the X-Men.

JUBILEE X-Men Costume 2
After the events of the X-Tinction Agenda, where the scattered X-groups teamed up to fight an oppresive mutant-hating Genoshan government, they briefly wore basic X-uniforms to give the team a unified feel. JUBILEE wore the updated versions of the classic gold and blue X-Men costumes but JUBILEE kept her sunglasses and her trademark earrings to personalize the ensemble.

JUBILEE Generation X Costumes
Professor X thinks that it would be beneficial for JUBILEE to hang around with mutant her own age so she was assigned to Generation X. While with the team JUBILEE would wear the standard uniform but adding her own flair to it.

Hellion Costume:
In one story JUBILEE and the other Generation X awakens in the past and in the bodies of Emma Frost's former students, the original Hellions!

After Generation X disbanded JUBILEE later sees herself joining her previous teammates with X-Corps, a team that acted as a mutant police force.

JUBILEE is later revealed to have lost her powers on M-Day, due to the reality manipulation of the Scarlet Witch. She would later gain technological gauntlets that gives her a new set of powers. She then joins the New Warriors where she is reunited with some of her former X-teammates who also lost their mutant powers. She now goes by the name Wondra.

Presently JUBILEE has been turned into a Vampire, possessing their strengths and their weaknesses.

In the 1996 television film Generation X, the character was portrayed by Caucasian actress Heather McComb, generating some controversy. JUBILEE had several power scenes and was one of the main characters.

Jubilee also appears in all three X-Men films, portrayed by Katrina Florece in X-Men and by Kea Wong in X2: X-Men United and X-Men: The Last Stand. In the first film, Jubilee is limited to a few cameo scenes in both Professor Xavier's and Storm's classrooms. She is featured in a deleted scene, in which she talks to both Kitty Pryde and Rogue. In X2, Jubilee appears in a deleted version of the museum scene which gives a brief introduction to her powers as blue electricity crackles around her fingers. Jubilee is among the six kidnapped young mutants that Storm and Nightcrawler rescue. She can be heard calling Storm's name and is shown running to safety with the X-Men and can be seen in the X-Jet. She also appears in the final classroom scene and briefly talks to Professor Xavier. The size of her role in X-Men: The Last Stand is limited; she appears within the first ten minutes of the film, and can be seen sitting in the classroom.

Note: Due to the nature of comicbooks being an on-going tale, the character's powers along with his appearance, is in a constant state of flux.

As a Mutant:
Energy Plasmoids: , Jubilee possessed the mutant ability to generate what she calls her "fireworks:" energy globules that varied in degrees of power and intensity. The globules obeyed her mental control, traveling where she directed them, arranging themselves in balls, streamers, and other shapes, and exploding when she wished. These combinations could result in anything from a multitude of colorful sparkles capable of temporarily blinding a person to a fairly powerful detonation, capable of smashing tree trunks or metal objects. Jubilee could absorb the fireworks back into her own body without harm.

Psionic Shields: Jubilee's mind possessed a natural defense against telepathic detection or attack. These psionic shields rendered her mind "slippery" and invisible to telepathic beings unless they knew precisely what to mentally scan for.

As Wondra (Using a Hi-tech Gauntlet):
Superhuman Strength: The micro-circuits lining of the gauntlets were designed to use gravitational waves for the purpose of increasing her strength to superhuman levels.

Force Field: The gloves were capable of generating a powerful electromagnetic force field around her. While within this field, Jubilee was highly resistant to physical injury. The field enabled her to withstand high caliber bullets, powerful impact forces, temperature extremes, and energy blasts without sustaining injury.

Flight: She could propel herself through the air at great speeds, able to reach velocities of at least 100 miles per hour and still breathe comfortably.

Ghost Mode: In this mode, Jubilee became intangible and could pass through any substance.

As a Vampire:
Jubilee is currently a vampire with full vampiric powers, including:Superhuman Strength, Superhuman Speed, Superhuman Stamina, Superhuman Agility, Superhuman Reflexes and Fangs.

Mist Form: Jubilee has the ability to 'decorporealize,' or turn herself into a form of mist.

This is the 48th article in my Know Your CBM Character series. Any requests and suggestions for an article for this series write it down in the comment section BELOW.

Message to the CBM community:To those who are making requests, check first [here] because I might have done an article on the character already. If I have not please be patient, I will get on it as soon as possible (but consider the fact that I spend hours writing one of these articles). Try to limit your request to characters that already have been adapted to live media, so that the feature will at least be relevant to the site – Comic Book Movie(though I include TV characters). Characters in Manga or Anime’, I am not particularly familiar of, I am not discounting these characters but it will probably take some time before I write a feature on them because I have to read up on these characters. Thank you for reading these articles! If there are errors on the feature article above, blame it on my age, humanity and ignorance. Just be sure to check the comment section for the corrections, any error I made will surely be pointed out and corrected by much bigger geeks (because there will always be a bigger geek out there). -This has been PollMaster inviting you to the geekside. MABUHAY CBM and Godspeed!

Now for the supergeeks, identify who these character is and what is his connection to JUBILEE:

Jubilee's right up there with April O'neil and Dick Tracy for best yellow trench coat.

VanCityKid - 5/8/2011, 11:34 PM

VanCityKid - 5/8/2011, 11:35 PM

worst character ever
MetropolisMarvel - 5/9/2011, 12:06 AM
They need to get away from this overdone vampire craze and put her light powers back. Maybe make her control light as lasers? Any mutant ever do that before, turning light into lasers that can cut through anything?

PollMaster, can you make a article about squirrel girl?, please

Wolverine & Jubilee + Greatest 2 man Xmen team ever.

"JUBILEE will follow them to their base, and hid there for some time."

Future, present tense? Make up your mind.
comicb00kguy - 5/9/2011, 6:33 AM
I always liked Jubilee and thought she made a fun and interesting 'sidekick' to Wolverine. I hated seeing her be one of the victims of the ill-conceived House of M. This vampire thing now is really lame, and is just a way to try to cash in on the whole Twilight fad.

The guy at the end of the article was Skin. He was a Latino kid from Generation X who had this weird power that let him stretch his skin out (he had a lot of extra skin he learned to compress on his body if memory serves) and do different things with it. Can't remember if he was just a teammate or if Jubilee hooked up with him.
marvel72 - 5/9/2011, 6:39 AM
never been a fan of jubilee,she's alright but nothing special.

liked her 2nd costume best.

howabout doing dr.doom pollmaster.
Conchizzle - 5/9/2011, 6:47 AM

I'm with you, I love these X-men articles, but would like to see some baddies from the big screen. I was thinking Doc Ock. Or Lady Shiva. Bullseye?
vexfly - 5/9/2011, 6:52 AM
Jubes :) good stuff. she's one of my favorite of the "lesser" powered types. Thats another part of the x-films that could've gone better. I remember watching the 1st in theater wondering why Rogue seemed to be in Jubilee's limelight as Wolverine's "sidekick"... but if I'm not mistaken that's sometihng that's happened recently, did it start with that crappy X-cartoon, where they're all in H-school?

Skin from Gen-X. not much of a gen-x fan. I know J and S were really close on the tv mini-series but I never followed the book closely enough to know if it was there as well
Superheromoviefan - 5/9/2011, 7:37 AM
i love this character
too bad the movies don't have her as main character
nuck82 - 5/9/2011, 7:37 AM
i just picked up jubilee's 1st appearance xmen comic book the other day, not sure why, but i thought it would be sweet to have, and it was cheap
TyrannicalOverlord - 5/9/2011, 7:51 AM
@SeaOtterRodgers- Subject-verb agreements. So annoying...

She's a vampire now? Lame.
I always thought she was annoying. Why would someone like Wolverine seriously want to drag an annoying mallrat on dangerous missions?
marvel72 - 5/9/2011, 8:20 AM
@ nuck82

i got some good first appearences,but they ain't worth that much.

-juggernaunt(shit copy)

i've got loads of them,but these are the ones off the top of my head.

i think venom,cable,deadpool & elektra are worth the most.
nuck82 - 5/9/2011, 8:33 AM
@marvel, i have the venom and deadpool number 1s but not there 1st appearence, and i would love the mr sinister and cable 1st app.
dabo - 5/9/2011, 9:31 AM
As much as it's nice to see them using Jubilee in stories again I miss proper Jubilee. I hope that they can use getting rid of the vampire thing as a way to get her back to normal with her powers.

I'm kinda ticked at what happened to Gen X. These were the teenage mutants when I was a teenager and now they've pretty much been decimated or forgotten. She was wolverine's plucky sidekick to me, Kitty Pride was some chick off in Excalibur, a comic I didn't really care about. Now Kitty is back front and centre, the new mutants are back together and then there are all the "new" new mutants/Acadamy X/New x-men or whatever they go by these days and don't get me wrong I like most of them, I'm an x-men nerd, I'd just like to see more done with the Generation X (what's left of it anyway)

I mean people rag on Jubilee's power cause it's fireworks but they were going down a line of explaining that essentially she could create explosions at a molecular level and was potentially really powerful but was afraid to fully use her powers after she blew up a fortress in madripoor! but then nothing...

rant over! :)
Digitaria51 - 5/9/2011, 10:28 AM
@Marvel72 I have first appearance of Black Panther. Worth anything? Maybe more if they make a movie?
AGENTJAY1130 - 5/9/2011, 11:32 AM
Jubiee was much cooler back when she was with the x men and generation x !!!!! This over kill of power is just getting to be a bit much!!! i mean she has the strength of colossus, she can pass through things like kitty pryde, highly resistant to physical injury like the juggernaut, she's i vamp and she can fly like rogue. What is it next ? she going to have the powers of the phoenix......or need i say more. Please make her cool again like the old Jubilation with a little up grading because she is a side show freak now!! SMH!!!!!!
TyrannicalOverlord - 5/9/2011, 11:39 AM
@AGENTJAY1130- Maybe they should go ahead and give her Wolverine type claws while their at it! Lol.
manymade1 - 5/9/2011, 11:50 AM
@marvel72 I'd kill for Elektras first appearence.
manymade1 - 5/9/2011, 11:51 AM
@marvel72 I'd kill for Elektras first appearence.
Talontd - 5/9/2011, 11:52 AM
Nice, i love Jubes! The issue where she mopped the floor with a bunch of Sentinels (i believe) after most of the X-Men had just had their @sses handed to them was AWESOME. She's usually written weak, but has showed glimpses of IMMENSE power.
superwolverine - 5/9/2011, 1:23 PM
jubilee is one of the lamest x-men characters of all.
YeaOkYea - 5/9/2011, 2:48 PM
Always had a soft spot for Jubilee but it seems that she was never really put up in front until this vampire craze came along. I hope when they cure her she gets her old powers back from the good old days & they give her a series or at least a one shot origin story.
