Biography

Joining the X-Men

Jubilee MCA File

After her mutant powers became known to her foster parents, her foster father called the mutant control division on her, despite the protest of her foster mother. Overhearing their conversation about the decision, Jubilee questioned to herself why she was becoming a mutant and recalled when she used to be normal, also addressing that it was not her fault that she was a mutant. Prior to a Sentinel arriving at her home, Jubilee retreated to the arcade in a mall and expressed sadness over her previous belief that her parents loved her. She found herself questioning what was wrong with being a mutant as she caused the arcade game she was playing to blow up with the accidental use of her powers. As an official of the store asked her if she knew how much the game cost, Jubilee merely replied that it cost a quarter as the man realized that she was mutant and she started to run from him.

While running, she bumped into Rogue and Storm, telling the two to watch where they were going. The Sentinel arrived at the mall and easily identified her, but caused Jubilee to take alarm once it revealed it planned to capture her. Despite some resistance, the robot managed to get her. Once she was saved by Rogue and Storm, she started to roam around the mall desperately and came across Gambit and Cyclops, the latter having her take cover as she passed out while he attacked the Sentinel. She woke up at the Xavier Mansion, where she was being given some support by their medical facility. Once she got out of the room, she made her way across the mansion and saw Beast and Morph as they tended to their own affairs. Upon getting inside another room, she saw Robert Kelly on the monitor and told him to get a life upon hearing some of his opinions on what should be done with mutants.

Right after viewing the dismembered head of the Sentinel that had attacked her, she was forced to hide once again when Charles Xavier and Jean Grey came into the room, the latter pointing out to Charles that the monitors were on prior to their departure from the area. She came across Gambit while he was battling Wolverine and under the belief that Wolverine was planning on killing him, used her powers to stop him from delivering the finishing blow. She explained her actions once the rest of the X-Men arrived and was taken by Storm, who explained what the group was and how they operated. As Storm related her own attributes, Jubilee gave justification for her while essentially stating that she was just someone who could blow things up.

She returned to her home, scared over what might have happened to her foster parents and was confronted by a Sentinel. Despite attacking it with her abilities, she failed to make any effect on it. As she started to run, she was confronted by another Sentinel and was made to pass out by the same one, referencing this being the second time that night that she had been taken out. As she began to loss consciousness, she looked up and saw Henry Peter Gyrich as he loomed over her. Wolverine tried to track her, but her scent went cold and he later joined the X-Men in going after her.

Meeting Bishop

Bishop arrived to the present time thanks to the aid of Forge and Wolverine, in a desperate attempt to save the future and prevent the assassination of Robert Kelly. However, once arriving he retained limited memory of what he had come back to do and only pieced together that he would have to stop the assassination of Robert Kelly after an amount of time spent wandering around, and still managed to come under the impression that the X-Men were responsible for the senator's death. Once he arrived at the Xavier Mansion, Bishop wasted no time in attacking Cyclops. As he prepared to deliver a finishing blow with his weapon, Jubilee stopped him from delivering the attack with the use of her powers, but was taken out alongside Storm once he retaliated. Wolverine tried to stop him and succeeded, though was not able to kill him after Charles stopped him.

Once the pandemonium was completed, the X-Men helped stabilize Bishop to have his mind entered by Charles, though Jubilee had difficulty with what she referred to as the arm-thingy. As Charles entered Bishop's mind, he was able to visually display the images of mutants being treated like animals and other horrible persecutions that were set to occur in the future. However, Jubilee was still confused and asked what they were even supposed to be seeing. Wolverine did not buy his story and criticized Xavier over believing him, justifying his feelings as fueled by the fact that they had previously been attacked by him. In the midst of his statement, Jubilee mentioned and brought up the weapon that Bishop had brought with him, as potential evidence that he was telling the truth. Once Charles finished with his mind, it was determined that the group would try to help Bishop piece together his memories.

Jubilee joined the rest of the team in accompanying him to the area where his time portal was located, where she asked what had come through the portal prior to being corrected by Bishop. As the team stood, they were suddenly attacked by Nimrod, who managed to separate the team in the process. As he attacked Wolverine and Bishop, Jubilee and Jean tried to attack him from the back, as Jubilee told him to back off while referring to him as a jerk. Once the robot turned its attention to the two and shot down Jean, it did not take long for the same to be done to Jubilee. As Bishop attacked Nimrod, he caused him to go back through time by ripping off the device keeping him in the present, which only managed to confuse Jubilee and propel her to ask him how he was able to send him back. Once Bishop explained how he did it and that it was possible that the same could happen to him, Jubilee expressed disappointment in the idea of him leaving the team's side. Once the team returned to the Xavier Mansion, the idea of anyone in the group being the assassin was brought up and caused some suspicion amongst the team. As Rogue returned to the mansion with Gambit, Bishop noticed the latter and proceeded to fire at him.

Powers and Abilities

Jubilee Powers

Jubilee had the mutant power to generate bright bursts of multi-colored energy from her fingertips that appear like fireworks. She can use this power to destroy electronics, break metal, and even push people away. Initially she cannot control her power but learns some control over time. She has a major problem with destroying electronics, much to the chagrin of her adoptive parents and the X-Men.

Personality

Relationships

Wolverine

Jubilee looked up to Wolverine, often tagging along with him on missions. The two had a father-daughter relationship, possibly due to the two not having much family left and both feeling as outsiders on the team. Her first encounter with him left a little to be desired, as she believed him to be a murderer while he dueled against Gambit. Once he began to come back to his senses following her blast, he remarked that she would not be alright for long after Storm asked how she was. Despite this, the two became close. As Wolverine returned to the Xavier Mansion after securing Magneto with Cyclops and Jean, Jubilee greeted him. In response, Wolverine told her that he had missed her.

Cyclops

Jubilee first met Cyclops after joining the X-Men. Though she was primarily the sidekick of Wolverine, she still had a level of respect for the leader of the X-Men and looked for his approval on multiple occasions. Once Iceman was brought to the Xavier Mansion, Jubilee resolved to help him infiltrate the military base that he believed Lorna Dane was being held in. Cyclops instead believed that he had taken her and vowed that he would do something about it. Once he met with her and Iceman, he tried to downgrade the latter as Jubilee defended him.

Background

Jubilee was voiced by Alyson Court.

She was featured heavily in the first season because she was a "way in" for new audiences to learn about the X-Men.[1]

When casting Jubilee, the producers had in mind a Valley girl voice like Ally Sheedy on speed.[2]

Jubilee shares many common traits, and criticisms, with Kitty Pryde of the failed pilot "Pryde of the X-Men". Most often referenced are that many stories focus on them, their naiveté, desire to always be included, and general whiny tone.

In the Comics

Joined the X-Men after she was saved by Dazzler, Storm, Rogue, and Psylocke.

Expressed jealousy of other female X-Men.
